Re: Mike Shaw part of Lebron James NCAA documentary

I’ve become sympathetic to the concept of athletes getting compensated for their abilities, but from a pure production standpoint for Bradley, I struggle to think of a worst test case to support that point of view than Mike Shaw. He got 3 years of education from Bradley, & in return Bradley got 449 ...

Re: 2018 BU recruiting

Come on Bertolini only saw the floor during junk minutes or when we were in foul trouble. He seemed like a nice guy but was nothing more then a bench guy. I hope all of our new guys are much better. Every team has bench guys. Including this current Bradley team. Not all 13 guys will be starters. Th...

Re: Bradley signs with Under Armor

I like Under Armour stuff, and I’m getting old. They make some golf shirts that the truly old folks would usually wear. I think it’s fine to move, though I was wondering about what ER3 pointed out.

Extensive review is still under way, and by extensive I mean well into the next decade.

Glad he graduated, and hope he does well. His agent better save her number on his cell phone contacts as his first action, or I hate to imagine what could happen.

Hopefully Jim Benson’s “undisputed favorite” polish bought him the space to report these facts this time, without having to take the pathetic passive-aggressive Twitter attack from Muller.

Re: Paying NCAA Athletes

We can talk theory and how a scholarship should be good enough, but the market forces/reality have the real vote and it’s pretty clear the players are worth more than a scholarship, especially at the highest levels. So, we have this system that we have, and it is terribly broken. I guess it depends...

Re: Paying NCAA Athletes

The schools shouldn’t pay the players. The athletes should be able to make whatever they can off their likeness. This also satisfies title IX requirements because all athletes have the same opportunity to earn income without the school having to foot the bill. My issue isn't so much that the player...

Re: Bradley recruiting confessional

Re: 2018 MVC Recruits

Been thinking about John Wilkins a lot lately. We had ourselves convinced we beat Kansas and a bunch of Big 10 teams for him, and it wasn’t tempered all that much by the time ISU landed him. They thought that they had a big time recruit too. To be clear, he wasn’t a bad player or anything, but wasn’...

It's TWINS week in the MVC. After Drake signed the Murphy twins Missouri State signed the Wojcik twins from Poland. They have been playing for a Club team in France. Supposedly decent players. But....what other offers did they have? The only thing that matters at this point is that undisputed favor...

Re: 2018 BU recruiting

Some great discussion going on here. I get the concerns, and pretty much share them, but there’s also a place for developing players in a successful program. I don’t think they are destined to stall out. Players can and should get better in a healthy program, but it sure does look like they are taki...

We don’t have any input or control on how they play either, on who plays, and how the schedule is built, and we are running with incomplete facts on all those things too. Yet we comment on it as well.

Understand why you’d want someone willing to compete, but not sure what the point is.

He’s doing most of the big things right, putting the program in a better position year over year so far, and ultimately you want to wait it out if you aren’t comfortable with what options are before you.

Nero to Weber St. Doesn’t appear we really offered him.
