I don’t know they need to stop them, but they were pretty bad last night.They need to stop doing the Duke/KU/UK/MSU games. They're awful. I think the planners of this thing want it to be like the Chicfila kickoff in football, but since it's basketball the games are usually ugly and hard to watch. If it was scheduled around early December before conference play starts it would be a much more entertaining event.
It’s one game.A terrible game by I think a couple middling teams. Ohio State has talent, UC has Cumberland but that’s about it. He may be wishing he went pro. That UC team should have blown OSU out in the first half. They just have zero shooters, zero inside quality big men. It’s the Cumberland show and he legit sucked tonight. Ohio state was just slightly better and helped by a few very questionable calls.
Xavier clearly the best right now in Ohio.
I was surprised UCLA hired Cronin. They need to be entertaining to be relevant in the LA market and Cronin’s style is the opposite of entertaining. I always felt he wasted a lot of talent while at UC. He will be fired from UCLA in three years, IMO. Bad fit.UCLA won by 4 over Long Beach St last night in Cronin's debut. UCLA was losing for most of the game before a late run sealed the win.
Brannen is also in favor of playing OSU.The UC vs OSU was an ugly looking opener, but that doesn’t diminish that these teams should meet every season. So far, there is no renewal on tap, but OSU’s coach has publicly expressed his desire for OSU to have UC and X on the schedule every season. I agree. Hope it happens. No reason it shouldn’t.
