They're commiserating about "Black Sunday" in the chili parlors around town. And there's plenty of company in the city's latest sports misery.
They've seen this oh-so-many times.
No other city went into the NCAA Tournament with such pride and expectations. Xavier had the first No. 1 seed in its history. Cincinnati was a No. 2 with aspirations of a long-awaited run deep into March. They'd spent the last half of the season shoulder-to-shoulder in the AP Top 25 , finishing at No. 3 and No. 6.
Surely this would be a March to remember around town, right?
Instead, it added two more breathtaking meltdowns to the city's recent history of them.
