Thanks.

Not so long ago certain some here were hailing the job Steele was doing at Xavier and how he already was outperforming Wojo.

Oh yes... I do remember that.

Bad enough that Travis Steele at Xavier... [is] seemingly outperforming Wojo in year two

Lol.  "Life comes at you fast." 

We finished 97th in Year 2 of Wojo.  Xavier currently at 58 in Ken Pom.  Let me know if you two would like to place any bets.  I've got Xavier under 97, you guys can have the over.

I look forward to your proposed wagers coming at me fast.  nh  (So lame, btw JayBee.)

Not everyone was touting Steele. I voiced my concern over their ability to remain at the same level. It gets tough when new coaches come in, especially after following the success the previous coaches have had at X. They looked down to me last year and even further down this season. I will be keeping an eye on how much rope is given there.

Moving goalposts.
You didn't write" Steele's year 2 is better than Wojo's year 2."
You wrote that Steele in year two of his tenure is outperforming Wojo.
I mean, who cares about comparing one guy's second year against another guy's second year? Nobody.

Yep. What I thought. Want nothing to do with that wager.

And for what it’s worth, at the time of that post, Xavier was rated higher than us...which was embarrassing considering their respective time on the job.

Guess their fanbase has higher expectations than we do, because they want him fired halfway through Year 2 as they sit at 58.

You are correct, I want no part of your dumb wager.
Which has nothing at all to do with the fact your previous comment is proving to be wrong. Steele is not outperforming Wojo (and certainly not six days ago).
Xavier sits at 58 after opening the season at 18. Might explain some of the angst.

Butler. Don't want them too hungry when we play them. Also a strong Butler is good for the league. Have a reasonable confidence Nova will continue to be solid.

If year 2 Wojo was being compared to year 8 McDermott, year 7 Cooley, and year 11 Wright, why shouldn't year 2 Steele be compared to year 6 Wojo?

If we're going to compare year 2 Wojo to year 2 Steele, it should be worth noting that year 2 Steele has 4 of Mack's recruits as upperclassmen that all tested the NBA waters last year as well as the top recruiting class of 2019 in the conference, while year 2 Wojo was led by a Freshman (although a very good one), and the only Senior was one of the walk-ons.

Wojo missed the postseason altogether and right now Steele is on the wrong side of the bubble (per bracketmatrix) and looking at another NIT.  Given the relative strengths of their respective rosters, I would say that those accomplishments (or lack thereof) are about the same.  Steele is in his second year as a HC, I expect him to get better the same way Wojo has gotten better since year 2.

Five of Marquette's top 7 players that year were freshmen. Another was a sophomore.
Six of Xavier's top 7 this year are upperclassmen. The lone underclassman is playing 15 mpg.

Marquette was projected to finish 6th in the conference that year. They finished 7th.
Xavier was projected to finish 3rd in the conference this year. They sit 8th.

Apples to apples, right?

But again, this is an excercise in futility because it isn't what you wrote back then. You just shifted the goalposts when your initial post started to look silly.

I have watched a lot of Xavier games this year (for obvious reasons) and the worst I saw them play was against us.  They've looked better than their 1-4 BE record.
