Re: 2019 MVC Recruits

https://twitter.com/WyattWheeler_NL/status/1151956922997858305 This actually isn't clarification at all. Redshirts still count against the scholarship limit. Either Ford Cooper, a 4 star recruit, is going to be on an academic scholarship or they're going to boot someone off after summer practices. ...

Missouri St lost one of their big recruits as Dajuan Harris from Columbia, MO just committed to Kansas. Their volleyball coach is on leave while being investigated for recruiting improprieties. Just wait until they get to Dana... As loaded as their WBB team is. . .they probably should be, too :lol:...

Absolutely they can but when you knock a Coach for figuring out a combination that clicked and took us to our first MVC tourney title in 31 years I call ^^ on it.

Re: Lots has been written about players taking the next step. What do you want to see Wardle improve on?

The pros: - Wardle has shown an absolute commitment to building the program slowly and steadily, without any regard to his overall W-L record. Yes, some programs have shown it can be done either way, but the approach he has taken has the best chance of holding up over time for our program. At least...

Re: 2019 NBA Draft Thread

I’m amazed in this day and age that people can think a certain group of high level teams are pushing things and breaking rules while the others are not.

These dudes all do the same thing. It’s a cesspool. They are all drinking out of the same water. It’s a small world.

Re: Lots has been written about players taking the next step. What do you want to see Wardle improve on?

Bradley went 9-4 down the stretch of conference season (including the referee larceny @Drake) after starting 0-5. That was a **** good stretch. They finished 12-4 if you toss in the MVC-T games. The overall body of work in conference looks different but when they got everyone healthy and clicking -...

I am having a hard time reading complaints about last season when the end result was winning a valley tour. title for the first time ever in St.Louis.

The Cubs should win their division and may even win their first series. But I doubt they can win the NL pennant let alone the World Series.
The Dodgers are amazing. However, win your division and it's a crapshoot.

Re: NBA trade

The NBA needs a poster child for the fans. That used to be LeBron but no more. Owners continue to spend a lot money for players who are no name role players, and big money on players who IMO don’t really deserve those contracts. Sorry, NBA have priced themselves away from real fans to see games. Co...

That’s three seniors, a RS junior and a regular junior. Have to be a title contender with a veteran lineup like that. I think that is the expectation for everyone involved with the program.

Re: Bradley's depth 19/20 season

He will get plenty of shots this season as a starter. You've got him as the MVC POY already. :) No but everything I have heard so far points to him being very good. I don't doubt that. But he will also be a freshman on a veteran dominated team with some lead dogs. Bradley's top three leading scorer...

And let me add your talking about the second winningest Coach under 40 in D1 and that’s with rebuilding Bradley from nothing. He has a great deal to improve on? Get serious! Does he have things to improve on, hell yes but he is way ahead of the curve! If Coach Wardle ever needs a new agent/PR perso...

Re: Bradley's depth 19/20 season

We heard the same about Boya last season and I think most would be happy if he could give us 15 mpg and 7 ppg this season. Even if Gabriel starts out of the gate (which would surprise me) I think 15 mpg and 7 ppg would be an unexpected bonus. Right. There aren't going to be a ton of shots for Gabri...

Re: Bradley's depth 19/20 season

The key here is how you define "contribute". I'd expect Ville to contribute more than Thomas in year one, but I'd think it would be a minor contribution. If we're lucky enough for Gabriel to log 15 mpg and 7 ppg I'd consider that a big deal. Gabriel will get a lot more minutes and the last I heard ...
