Unhappy NBA jerseys @ XU

Several comments have been made about the number of XU players who have gone on to play in the NBA (even briefly) over the past ten years.

I work at a high school in Cincy and we hold our graduation ceremony at Cintas every year. The faculty and students assemble before graduation on XU's practice court inside the building and then march past their weight room out onto the floor. The somewhat circuitous hallways to get to the floor are lined with framed NBA team jerseys of all of those players hanging on the walls. Each jersey has the XU player's name on the back and those who have played for several teams have jerseys hanging from each of those teams. There are also mural photos of some of those players in action shots of them playing for those NBA teams.

I'm sure to a 16- or 17-year old with great dreams, such sights are VERY impressive.

Contrast that with what we have to display: black and white FORTY- and FIFTY-year old photo murals of our greats. (Sigh!)

That's what BG has to go up against. We really need to turn the corner on that issue. If BRob was 25 pounds heavier, this year might have broken the drought.
