Cordeiro to Transfer

No big surprise here, but Thiago Cordeiro has decided to leave UD. I suppose the thinking is that this opens up a scholarship for a potential junior college PG to transfer in. I'm having a hard time giving a crap, but this is an excuse to get a Xavier player's mug off the top of the page, so there you have it...

At least our players aren't getting arrested

This happened 3 or 4 days ago.

CINCINNATI — Police arrested Xavier University point guard Drew Lavender on charges of disorderly conduct and possession of marijuana.

Cincinnati police arrested Lavender early Sunday morning. The police report says he was drunk and disorderly after they asked him several times to move out of a street intersection. Police say they found marijuana on Lavender after searching him. Lavender was released Sunday after posting $2,000 bond.

Xavier athletic director Mike Bobinski say the school is aware of the charges and will review the matter before deciding if any disciplinary action is warranted.

Hard for me to get too up in arms about the whole ordeal. A college senior getting drunk and high? Shocking. Tell me you wouldn't trade an Elite Eight appearance for a London Warren arrest. Yeah, me too... Sweet mug shot, though.

My UD Fandom In A Nutshell

I finally got some photos of the OSU-UD game back for the place where I work. This photo really sums up my evening. I believe if you click on it, you'll see the full version.

The only thing missing is David West stomping on my hat while Sean Miller spits on me.
