Re: F*!#

Sulking is over. It is what it is. Rotation isn’t hard now. 7 guys. Defend. Rebound. Play small but ‘big’. Veteran teams can find ways to overcome adversity and weather the storm. We have 3 all-League caliber guys who will be logging big minutes and know how to win. A new star needs to (and will) e...

Re: “But are they good?”

I think Mitch Holthus would take offense to this guy’s self-given nickname...because I think Mitch already gave himself that nickname. I think they should fight for it at Arch Madness...Khabib-MacGregor style... I have been around the Valley for over 20 years and honestly had never heard of this gu...

Re: Houston Astros Spygate 2018

https://www.masslive.com/redsox/index.ssf/2018/10/houston_astros_spying_scandal_alcs_mlb_not_punish.html MLB will not punish the Astros.

Re: Red n White

Also - If Brummett or Lundy are able to give us something here and there, even if just to spell guys, that's a nice little bonus. I'd love to see what Brummett can do. We already know Lundy's shortcomings, and given the lineups we may have to play, I don't think he will provide much of anything on ...

Re: “But are they good?”

This author calls himself ‘The voice of the Valley’, which is funny since I am not sure anyone has ever heard of him. Harry is very prominent on twitter and most of the beat writers around the valley seem to respect him. I have always liked him as well, and enjoyed reading his content. I think Mitc...

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2018

Get some players. I realize these moves are part of every organization but the Cardinals the past few years have shifted secondary level coaches more than they had in the previous 20 seasons, while not addressing the real issue. Talent on the field. Tired of it. The teams that are still playing hav...

So many teams play a type of prevent defense in those situations. I don't know which coach should be credited with it but "The only thing a prevent defense does is prevent you from winning!"
So true!!!

Re: Green Bay Packers 2018

This probably isnt the thread for this but the NFL drives me crazy. Maybe the last league to go all in on advanced analytics.

Happened to DLO a summer or two ago and set him back quite a bit if I recall correctly. DLO has played in 30+ games all three seasons at Bradley. Every guy who matters to BU has played 30+ games each season since they've been on campus except Luuk who played 26 games last year with one start. It's ...

Re: F*!#

I disagree that it would be worse if it was Dlo or Brown for instance.... those guys don’t need the seasoning nearly as much as Ari does. Either one of those guys would be back up to full speed once their conditioning caught up whereas Ari needs D1 game experience prior to Conference season..... Th...

The players in the rotation are pretty solid MVC players. However, the roster is looking really thin. This stuff happens. I’m not down for the bad luck talk. Last year was good luck. The guys we are counting on have played together forever in college basketball terms. We have more continuity than a...

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

Guys YPC doesn’t really go up as the game goes on. That’s just TV guy talking points.

I think Nagy is smart enough to know Howard is a good player and will use him accordingly. I think the Bears are finally in good hands on the sideline.

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2018

Wainwright is coming back. This is not good news. He isn’t one of the 5 best starters in the franchise at this point but will be given a spot because of his history with the team I don't think he will be given anything. It is a very low risk move on every level. If he's good, he gets paid and earns...

Re: Green Bay Packers 2018

I read that Crosby has the most missed kicks overall since 2010...his days might be numbered. Packers win today if he makes the easy field goals and extra point. I will give him the 56 yard miss - many kickers will miss that. Or they win without giving up 17 points on turnovers.....just a terrible ...

Thanks for the link.
How can this guy be a 3-star senior and only have BU and SIU-E as his offers?
I think the star system means nothing. Too many players around the country/world to be anywhere close to accurate.
