Re: The Drake Game

To be fair...officiating is harder now than it has ever been. The game is faster. The players are bigger, faster and stronger. The skill level is amazing. If officiating were that easy more people would do it. It is not harder if you go further back when there use to be just 2 refs. Those guys neve...

Re: The Drake Game

For what its worth, there was a massive controversy in the Houston NBA game last night where they assert a referee basically controlled the outcome of the game --- to the point where for the 1st time in over 20 seasons, both starting Rockets Guards fouled out of a game. So bad officiating is permea...

Re: Hawkins' 8th place scoring rank in jeopardy

Mike Daum had 38 tonight which pushed him past the Big O on the all time list, so Hawk may get passed twice in the same season. Reminds me of Doug McDermott, except without all the hype. I hope the Bulls don’t trade up for him too. Haha, right. Like McD, he's too slow and too much of a defensive li...

Re: The Drake Game

Here's an article from 2016 on Baywatch Higgins which states he makes upward of $3,000/game (plus airfare/travel expenses). He claims the quantity of games worked does not effect his quality. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.si.com/college-basketball/2016/01/28/ncaa-basketballs-most-recognized-refer...

Re: Ongoing opponents thread

Don't they have a couple oftransfers from San Jose State which continued being one of the worst programs in America even without those guys? Probably won't matter with the 8th Wonder of the World Ndayie becoming available to play next season. I'd still expect them to be the undisputed favorites aga...

Re: Preseason previews, projections, predictions, etc.

Hasn’t the league been a disaster from the start this year? UNI winning hurts us the most. MO.ST. beating us twice and now going in the tank will have screwed us the most this season. It took you this long to figure out? C'mon man. :lol: :roll: :mrgreen: :joker https://memegenerator.net/img/instanc...

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

In spite of Wardle's weird subbing patterns at times, one pattern is undeniable, come mid-February if the guy doesn't ever take the warm-ups off, it's not too hard to read between the lines there. Even Brummett was getting spots last night. Granted that was in part due to foul trouble with the guar...

Re: The Drake Game

I'm going with incompetence over bias. I'd like to remind everyone we bloodied one player without any foul call. I actually thought that happened when Eli's head hit Robbins face. Eli was rubbing the back of his head after that play. It did. No call was the right call there. Quite possibly one of t...

Respect for the Drake fans. Just read their message board and they get it.

I was once told that officials don't decide games.....I think this may be an argument against that belief!
Usually they don't. This game they are. I haven't seen something this bad since the 1972 Olympics basketball robbery.

Re: Welcome Stephan Gabriel!

Let's face it Henry appears to be taking the mantle from DLO as a energy physical guy. IMO you can't have enough of those guys. What we need next year is someone capable of playing the PG role. DB is a much much better player when he's off the ball. I don’t think Henry is taking anything from Dlo u...

There's nothing about Drake that scares me. I expect a convincing BU victory in this revenge game. Really? I think they are very impressive. Best big man in the league, athletic wings and a couple guys who can really, really shoot it. My comment has more to do with the utter fear that some profess ...

Re: Glory Days....

Poised to win at Drake. If so, a successful season, right? What else could make it so? And don't tell me the NIT. For me a successful season would be closing out the season by winning three of four, plus two in St. Louis to get to 20 wins. I'd like to think that a 20-14 season could get us an invit...

Is Dana Ford in Springfield next year if they win the conference? Will Loyola end up being the 3 seed? Or worse? Yes. Ford isn't going anywhere. He isnt a Niko type of guy.
