Darrin Horn on Xavier Rumors. Horn claims he was in Cincinnati last week on personal business, not to speak to Xavier. Convenient, huh? I'll have to say that I like part of his statement, thouh:
And quite honestly, (I) was a little surprised by being a part of that speculation when it started simply because I just left a job like that to come be where I want to be, which is at a state school in the SEC, working for a terrific administration.
You know, it's worth keeping our fingers crossed about this until someone else actually takes the job, but it's also worth pointing out that Horn is basically talking down Xavier here; he's saying that they're definitely a mid-major when compared to USC. That's not the kind of neutral statement one usually hears from someone who's considering taking a job.
