Re: BU @ SIU

Brown hit some big time shots to close that one. What a relief. Lundy isn’t a bad player. Pretty sure I heard SIU fans booing their own team there at the end.

Re: Glory Days....

So the world changed and Bradley did not keep up. Like any conservative philosophy, staying put while the world changes may seem noble, rational and justified but comes with a cost. We long for the good parts of the past, ignore the reasons things change, and are left with memories. We could have k...

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

I actually don’t disagree that we’re only 1-2 legit rotation wings away from being pretty good. We only lost literally one rotation player from a 20 win team. We may not be as far as it seems...however... The problem is, we’ve only been 1-2 rotation wings away for 2+ years. The needs have been obvi...

Re: Glory Days....

We may not be able to follow the levels of greatness we had established generations before, but we still have the resources to be able to compete against our direct peers in our conference, and yet we do not accomplish that.

Re: Accentuate the Positive

I’m positive Bradley basketball could and should be better than this. I see no reason we should not be a fairly consistent factor in the conference. Recent (and not so recent) results don’t support this, but I guess I still believe at some point here it is going to happen.

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.

And far as postgame comments, which btw I had no interest in hearing, I am kinda glad Wardle is talking like this about it. I mean, it is clear he doesn’t have answers as is pertains to this roster, so to be proud and egotistical right now and try to ^^ your way into acting like you do would look re...

Re: Fire Wardle

Forbes is a good coach and an outstanding recruiter, but it’s largely JUCO’s in his network. So the transfer credit issue would be a big problem.

Re: Fire Wardle

I’m not sure any Bradley Big has ever been widely loved. It’s water off a ducks back at this point. People choose to forget this sometimes, but even both POB and Bayo took a decent amount of heat. Because, of course, if any of us were 7’0”, we be thundering dunks every time we touched the ball. On a...

Re: Just Don't Get it

His work on the glass, and ability to slash and finish around the hoop definitely patched over what was a pretty weak roster on offense, but I have to believe there is more to this than that. This is a stunning collapse at all kinds of levels. Letting Darrell "freestyle" was his 1st mistake 2 years...

Losing Donte was huge. Maybe I'm grasping, but letting Barker go was a mistake. He would not have filled Donte's shoes this year, but he would have made this team better if he was still on the squad. Barker basically wasn't here last year. I have said before losing Donte would be a big loss, but I ...
