Re: Michigan State

Sleep tight, Braves fans. Tomorrow we dance.

Soak it in. It’s been a looooong 13 years.

Re: Dave Reynolds takes the high road..

While that's an obvious fact, the causal link is flawed. It's an assumption that it's because of Wardle when the reality is that it had been trending downward since Les' last few years. Right. He even ends with “maybe the fans are onto sonething”. It’s not complicated to figure out the incorrect co...

Re: Dave Reynolds takes the high road..

The article made a statement "They are also seeing attendance decline". Is that not a fact? Was there not a coaching change prior to that decline? While that's an obvious fact, the causal link is flawed. It's an assumption that it's because of Wardle when the reality is that it had been trending do...

Re: Dave Reynolds takes the high road..

Flip your scenario mex... Why couldn't Bradley (your buddy Wardle) wait until after the season to play the j**k card? It’s pretty clear that both sides were pretty big jerks. I can’t wait until this is phased out of the news cycle. Well not quite phased out of the news cycle yet. https://670thescor...

Re: Dave Reynolds takes the high road..

Did you read the article? He put a jab in every place he could, you give him to much credit. By the way there was a meeting set up after the season to try and handle this, why did he have to play the martyr right now and take the focus off the positive things these kids accomplished? I read Dave’s ...

Re: Big Dance

I don’t live in Peoria or central Illinois and it’s a story,a negative story and regardless of when it dies down it’s a negative story and is associated to the university In an incredibly negative way. Bradley is now a punch line and again is an under dog many want to see loss and lose big. Go look...

Re: Dave Reynolds banned?

Good on PJstar for putting this out there right now, great exposure and timing. Why should they give a crap about Bradley’s feelings or the timing? This whole cutting off access was a BU decision well specially a Wardle decision and it was forecasted a few years ago. I live in a huge southern city ...

Re: Dave Reynolds banned?

Thats certainly a take. A terrible one, but certainly not a surprising one given where its coming from. Don’t they have division 2 football to be chatting about? You guys realize he's a Metamora 'birds fan....no? Lol no I didn’t. But he’s probably still got football to be chatting about then.

And they shouldn’t be loving this play they’re getting. This is not going well for them with national media...media that they sh...

This just ruined my Saturday as I did not see it last night. Dave provides awesome coverage. We have waited 13 long years for this. Dumb. Anything Dave wrote this year was justified. We were on a huge slump with the 0-5 start. We had everyone back from previous year and were supposed to compete for...

Good thread.

Go Braves. As of this morning, Lunardi has us in Des Moines vs Michigan State.

Another shot at Izzo would be fun.

Dr. Reynolds being out of town, really has nothing to do with the timing of the article. BU twitter literally published - they had been hand-cuffing DR all year. So they've had all year, up to this point to mend fences with PJstar. Surely Dr. Reynolds was in the know on that sort of SID decision. N...
