Re: F*!#

Not to interrupt the Bar discussion....

Was at an alumni event this week and President Roberts confirmed that Boya has a hairline fracture of the tibia.

Re: Always a Brave

Is this the end of ‘Always A Brave’? Father Time remains undefeated. I would think so because the Sweet 16 guys have aged and we do not have enough good younger players that can compete against this type of competition.I still say they would have won it the first year had Ruffin not gotten injured....

Re: Bradley signs with Under Armor

Didn't we just switch from Nike to Adidas not that long ago???

Also, interesting move (for BU and UA) given that UA just dropped the big MLB deal they had in place because they're in a big financial crunch....

Are we sure Chicago St will even exist 5 months from now to fulfill their end of the 2-for-1?
Aside from having to scramble to get another game, wouldn't this be a good thing???

Re: Jerry Palm podcast

Finally, an ally against the silly idea everyone thinks is a good idea. You cannot put in a rule against teams that are sub-.500 in conference, for several reasons: - like he said, it's only 60% of a schedule, and the NCAA has come out and said they don't differentiate between a conference game and...

Re: Jerry Palm podcast

Can you discuss the merits of a rule that would make teams ineligible for NCAA Tournament if you have a .500 or less conference record? Dovetails into is a 6th, 7th, or 8th place team really more deserving than a mid-major or other conference school that dominated their league and non-con but droppe...

Re: MVC MWC Challenge

I'm pretty sure this, or something along these lines has been posted by other posters, but these "mid-major challenges" are fraught with concerns. Clearly, it's one way to get a decent opponent (if the matchup makers are successful), but again, it's also an "eat your own" kinda situation. I guess yo...

Re: ISU at Bradley Wednesday 2/14

First of all, Beamer's 2 posts before this one were both right on the money. Second, the big question that's been thrown out about next year is "How will we replace Donte?" Now, bear with me for a bit...instead of asking "How will we replace Donte?" we as "How will we replace Childs?" No, Childs isn...

...Boya, because he hasn't been playing the game long and Brummett, because it seems he has had close to zero actual basketball coaching in his lifetime. I've never watched them play, so obviously I could be completely wrong on this one...maybe Boya comes in and makes it clear from day 1 that he ha...

On the short-term outlook (i.e. post-Loyola), yep, definitely going the wrong direction. I know that we had the standard back-and-forth after the Loyola game of folks that were super-mega-excited and folks that were cautiously optimistic and the "hang on, pump the brakes, fellas" folks.

Re: Drake Saturday

I'm still a little perplexed by Luuk's DNPs...Even though he's been up and down, I think he would have helped slow Drake's and McGlynn's ability to hammer us inside. I trust coach, but it's surprising that he's gone total DNP 2 games in a row, unless there's something else going on that we're not a...

Frustrating loss, horrible shot selection those last two shots. Just too undisciplined on both ends of the floor.
I'm waiting for the cops to show up because I'm sure my neighbors called them after the things I yelled at the volume I yelled them at during the last minute of the game.
