Re: Bradley's Fall Sports Teams

I have avidly followed Bradley athletics since enrolling in 1980 and graduating in '83. I don't recall the Fall sports team ever competing at a such a high level across the board as they are this year. Volleyball, tennis, men's & women's golf, soccer, and the cross country teams are all winning. I ...

That’s cool.... gotta ask...why the growth spurt??
Haha, right. Hey, let's just stretch Bar to 7' so we have two 7-footers on the roster. One thing I know, Bar is either shorter than 6'11 or Boya is taller than 7'1. Boya towers over everybody on the roster.

Re: Welcome Antonio Thomas

I'm not sure if this was already posted, but I like that he has a strong frame and knows how to stay in control against bigger players. Welcome to Bradley Tonio!

Re: Yarbrough

I’m not comparing, just asking for clarity. I like to know where people draw the line. For the record, physically assaulting a woman is a pretty *** move so it’s funny you ask if I’m comparing the two. So if you’re not comparing then you must be ok with what Danny did.

Dave Renolds tweeted it. Bradley just received commitment from 6-7 Steven Gabriel from Hillcrest Prep (Ariz.).
Looks to be quite athletic and physically strong... not sure if he can shoot from this video.

Re: Preseason previews, projections, predictions, etc.

I think those predictions are pretty solid. I'd actually place ISU as a 1 or 2 over SIU, and I think EU will finish higher than 9th. The top half of the Valley and the bottom half are fairly predictable this year IMO, with the order of each up for grabs.

Good workout, would like to see if he can repeat his good shooting in a spacious arena like Carver that has no background.

Re: Braves fill the final scholarship!

Happy for the kid, but I agree with this for basketball. Unless the kid is a Danny Adams type that has earned his way to playing 10+ minutes a game on average, then it shouldn't be happening in basketball. That's poor criteria to use IMO since there are only 40 minutes in a game. Using this logic y...
