Radford would be a good get. Also, it would appear DB may have added an addition 10-15 lbs of "get out my way MF" weight.
Radford and Norfolk State are the best case scenario for prelim teams. If those end up being the two, it is probably the best early season tournament in memory.

Re: Lots has been written about players taking the next step. What do you want to see Wardle improve on?

And let me add your talking about the second winningest Coach under 40 in D1 and that’s with rebuilding Bradley from nothing. He has a great deal to improve on? Get serious! Does he have things to improve on, hell yes but he is way ahead of the curve! Agreed. He’s pretty **** good so far. Can alway...

Re: Walt Lemon Jr.

Walt is a fringe, fringe, fringe NBA player. He just doesn’t shoot it well enough. I feel like he has a spot in the league somewhere. It is probably as a 11th man type on a pretty bad team, but still. The fact that he has played, let alone scored 20 points in multiple games, is a huge testament to ...

Re: 2019 MVC Recruits

Not really applying to 19-20, but MO State just got another huge verbal from a 4-star talent. If Ford can coach them up at all, they look every bit the favorites the next couple years (on paper). Wondering how he's getting all these really good recruits? I'm hoping it is all legitimate. The MVC cou...

Anyone turning right around and heading to Memphis for the game on December 3rd or 4th? We are headed home after Fort Meyers and having Thanksgiving on Saturday and then headed back out to Memphis.
I’m 50/50 on Memphis. Would like to make that one happen.

Re: Cubs

Where do Cub fans place the blame on the team's underperforming? Is this a manager issue as some suggest or a talent issue? As an outsider, this seems more of a talent issue. Since the World Series win it doesn't seem as if the front office has made the correct calls. Darvish and Chatwood have been...

Great news. One can never take the NCAA decisions for granted when you do not play for a BCS school.
I agree. I know everyone at BU was confident but the NCAA can be dumb sometimes. Great to have him officially cleared for next year.

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

I also suspect, based on the total lack of info about the extent of the injury, that BU is hoping, but doesn't really know, that Reink Mast is still an incoming freshman. I’m confident that Brian Wardle doesn’t operate any facet of this program based on “hope.” The staff knows exactly what’s going ...

They have a much improved staff on the bench this coming year, but the talent level is not nearly as good. They're preseason play-in team right?

Why is it a bad hire? I think this could be a very good hire. I don't entirely disagree.

I'd expect this from a more desperate school li...
