Re: Just Don't Get it

The fact that this program was clearly trending up, playing on Saturday last year in STL, only lost one player, wins a Cancun tournament with decent competition and has magically turned into an all-time bad Bradley team is truly the most astonishing thing I have seen watching sports.

Re: Coach Wardle

Boy, was it ever a layup line!!!! MSU was 25 of 38 shooting 2's with 20 of those baskets being scored in the paint. As much as the board, and Coach Wardle, have dwelled on Bradley's poor shooting this year, the Braves shot 10 of 19 from the arc. To win a game, the team will need to do more than jus...

Re: Fire Wardle

Jerrance Howard and AJ Guyton will never be head coaches at Bradley University. Let’s all go ahead and have our mourning ceremony now and put it to rest forever. What about Hunter Rhodes with lead assistant Jeremy Crouch? https://twitter.com/pjstarsports/status/1085392219006291970?s=21 Perfect timi...

I feel extremely confident this will be your final Valley standings.

Loyola 14-4
Illinois St 12-6
Drake 8-10
Northern Iowa 8-10
Evansville 8-10
Indiana St 8-10
Valparaiso 8-10
Missouri St 8-10
Southern Illinois 8-10
Bradley 8-10
8-6 the rest of the way doesn’t sound too bad at this point.

Re: Fire Wardle

All of the other schools in the league have big time contributors that are either transfers or JUCOs. We have had one juco/transfer contributor in 10 years. Tyshon Pickett, on bad teams. What’s the issue? Off the top of my head: Isu - Yarbrough - transfer Drake - Norton - transfer MSU - Da Silva - t...

Feehan hit a 3 and driving layup on back to back possessions to force OT.

Couple of great games so far. Valley Hoops!

Re: Open Practice @ Carver Today 2 PM

I like to think that Childs can make layups with contact but the problem is he settles for baseline jumpers and jump hooks. I would rather see him attack the basket and maybe draw a foul or 2. See: Donte Thomas Agreed totally. A friend of mine said - want to see how Childs is playing? Look at his F...

Re: Open Practice @ Carver Today 2 PM

I was there as well for the first hour. Biggest take always were Jayden please shoot the ball more. You’re not a bad shooter. Ari’s length/size defensively for an MVC player is special. I hope we can develop him. Koch really struggles to finish around the rim. And I really would like to see Jashon ...

Nothing remarkable to report.... i was first one there and about 15-20 total showed up. Short Beer lines..... No JD , no swearing or outbursts from Warden. Nobody shat their pants....He got upset a few times but just a few “ wake ups “ mostly directed at Dlo today. Nate drew his ire to several time...

I don’t want to see childs shoot anything except for layups. The holding the ball and clanking a baseline jumper is infuriating.

Updated with SELA and UNI. I thought UNI was a nice crowd for a Wednesday. Losing isn't going to help. Bummer.
My statement still holds water does it not?
Regarding drawing a larger crowd and then *** the bed? 100% holds up. Last year against isub and Drake are prime examples.

Much like the rest of you, I am discouraged, frustrated, etc. I actually got up and left with about 2 minutes to go last night. Which I never do no matter how bad the basketball is.

Wardle has no clue what to do. Continually throwing his hands up
He’s throwing his hands up in disgust at how poorly the players are playing. I am too.
