Re: Chet Walker

I purchased the framed jersey that Bradley gave Chet Walker when his number was retired on eBay. Sad that it meant so little to Chet or that he needs money this bad. I know he always had an issue with Bradley so maybe he just didn’t want it in his house. He kept it for 5 years so I wouldn’t think t...

Re: Elijah Clarence going PRO

Does this mean that ISU is no longer the unanimous, unquestionable, infallible champion of preseason champions? Someone get Jim Benson on the line... Maybe, MAYBE, it opens the door just a sliver for Loyola, but only if some of the players like Custer and Krutwig work really, really hard to get the...

I sure hope there's a game that warrants the suspense. :lol:
Staying with The Office, you’re saying you hope it’s not like when Michael Scott promised everyone a big surprise, and then handed everyone ice cream sandwiches.

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

Peppering the recruiting trail with guard offers. Long overdue! Stevens' game looks just like Brown's. I'm a *** for the Dan Ruffin/Will Franklin/Darrell Brown types. Yes yes yes!!! Maybe I'm wrong, but most championship-caliber Valley teams have always had a dynamic guard duo. We haven't been real...

Which shows up first: Under Armour shirts on the Bradley campus, or Ndiaye on undisputed favorite ™️ ISU campus?

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.

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...

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’...
