Re: Year 4’s - What’s the difference?

If Geno Ford had enough good players, he would be at Bradley still and not Stony Brook. No one knows this more than Geno Ford.

For Bradley to get to the top of the MVC Brian Wardle will need to bring in better players. I am sure he knows this as well.

Re: Year 4’s - What’s the difference?

I don’t think it is littered with all D2 talent, but I definitely think Donte developed into an alpha, and we desperately needed an alpha to replace him. We foolishly recruited development projects and niche players instead. Yes. 100%. Every recruit you bring in should, theoretically, challenge the...

Re: Fire Wardle

This comes down to 1 thing and 1 thing alone - recruiting. -We mistakenly chose the 5-27 path, which is still haunting us. We still have 3 players from that embarrassment playing minutes on this embarrassment. That speaks volumes. Thinking winning 5 games after only winning 9 games wouldn’t be noti...

Re: Year 4’s - What’s the difference?

I’ll say it again - Geno’s Year 4 team had twice as much talent as Brian’s and would kick this team’s @ss. And Geno deserved to be canned at the end of that utter embarrassment. We have a below-average D2 roster, by far the worst roster 1-13 in a historically-bad MVC. We are arguably in a worse spo...

Re: Fire Wardle

Making changes to the coaching staff doesn't do much for me. Especially if its just cosmetic. Coach Wardle should have the staff he wants. Chris Reynolds isn't going to force him to make changes. Now, there may be changes but it wont be for cosmetic reasons. And if the word out there (true or not) t...

As far as BU to D-II, you gotta have the rose colored glasses on not to acknowledge the reality of that.
Please explain your rationale for that conclusion. :?
No. You have to be a rationally thinking human to realize Bradley to D2 is ridiculous.

Re: Dave Snell's game notes.

Gone are the days when Chuck Buescher and Joe Stowell told fans the way it was. No softballs. I recall that on Dec 29 I was on the way home with my son from a game listening to the UCLA/Liberty game. No softballs thrown by those announcers. They called out the team, the coach. They called for chang...

Re: Braves vs the Drake

I'm going to admit I did not watch this game. I was watching GSW - Pelican game. I forgot completely about this one. One I'm glad, the GSW _ Pelican game was an offensive gem to watch. Second, if I forgot about a BU game that tells me they better make some changes in the off season. If they keep Wa...

Re: The Valley

It doesn't help when Bradley has been one of the worst offenders and yet our Coach continuously only talks about our defense. If you didn't watch last night's game but read the 1st half stats, you might think the team played their version of Bird Box Basketball. :gagr Well. When have the worst offe...

His excuse to be "closer to home" doesn't fly when he ends up in Virginia. His mom is the Asst. Director for Academic Deve...

Good stuff here from Pat Hickey - the Evansville beat writer. If the Valley wants to stop the fall its in it needs to start fielding some better offensive teams. It's a **** grind every night. Evansville has certainly tried to get faster and same for Drake with Devries doing the Creighton stuff. But...

in all fairness to Bar there isn’t a single player on this team right now playing well.... It’s systemic and until everyone ups their game it’s going to be hard for an individual to play very well.
