Re: 1A-2A Regional Seedings

Tough loss for the Chiefs, but they struggled against more athletic teams and Quest is very athletic. They were carried by Neal Schuerman and relied a lot on outside shooting. Teams with more athletic guards can stop that and they did as I predicted.

And that is where I heard it. If he is honored Tuesday night, he will be gone. Of course Sam Singh did come back for his 6th year!

Also, has anyone ever heard of officials taking away a foul call after a review and charging the other team with a flagrant foul?

Re: The Drake Game

If this one official was heavily criticized in working another Drake home game, wouldn’t that trigger some concern as we move forward. After reading all of this, I am not sure BW should have taken the high road. Even in listening to the game, Snell and Klein constantly complained about the officiati...

Re: The Drake Game

Drake has a great inside/outside game. We need to limit McGlynn as he has always man handled us. And hopefully they won’t shoot us out of the gym with the 3 ball. It’s a chance that we will need to take.

Re: 1A-2A Regional Seedings

I would look for a possible upset at Tremont. Quest and Farmington could be sleepers. But you are correct, WH might as well be playing at home. That side of the bracket is much weaker.

I believe they got a break when #1 seed ND was shipped to Macomb. I would have thought that the #1 seed would get to stay closer to home.

Re: Braves v Ramblers

We are in this because Ramblers are missing wide open shots. They won’t miss 2nd half so we better figure how to score and limit turnovers.

Porter Moser talked today about Custer’s statistics being off this year. That is a bad omen. I also stopped by the RC and got some extra tickets today. The girl told me that they gave been selling a lot of tickets for tonight’s game. Hopefully we can get a big BU crowd.

Re: Season Finale between Braves-Ramblers added by ESPN2

With the game being more than two weeks away and having a 2 game lead, Ramblers might have league locked up by then. It could come down to the game being more vital to BU in the final standings.

Re: Kyler Murrary enters NFL draft

By walking away it was the $3 million guaranteed money I was talking about. You are right however, the instant money comes that from the NFL contract will surpass the MLB in years. If he has a great combine some team just might grab him early.

Kyler Murrary enters NFL draft

Will be become a 1st round quarterback? At 5’9” the NFL has not had a quarterback this short since Doug Flute. After winning the Heisman I understand his desire to play football and there will be some team willing to draft him. But IMO baseball is a much safer non contact sport, and I would have jus...

Re: We need to sell out the arena Weds!!!!

IMO if we don’t have Luuk and go back playing the same ball we played before going small we are in serious trouble. Henry is playing well in his limited role, but without Luuk our bench strength is now limited. I don’t see going Koch Bar again as a viable option.

I really like the concept, if they make Saturday a championship Saturday. I have long been an advocate in playing all title games on Saturday night with the present format. Fans do not attend the 3rd place games, except for schools Involved.

I wasn’t at the game on Saturday, but I thinking it is amusing that in looking back at posts when Redbirds got a new coach, there wasn’t an opposing coach or official who really wanted to talk let alone shake hands. However winning cures all and now all is good. When you have the best team in the ar...
