Re: TAYLOR BRUNINGA- ILLINI BLUFFS

If assistant coaches in the bottom half of the valley and below saw him and don't think he's good enough some folks need fired. Taylor is solid with a nice upside.

Mid Illini Openings

Morton East Peoria and Canton all have varsity boys basketball openings. Washington is loaded and will certainly add to the mix. The conference will change but stay the same.

Re: 2017 BU Recruiting and beyond

I've noticed an aversion to Juco players by BU fans. The sweet 16 team had a strong Jc influence and Wichita dominates the valley with multiple jc guys. I think BU should take a shot at a couple of the best Jc guys in the nation and see if they land one. If they can't get a real difference maker go ...

Manual get anyone back yet?

Just wondering if Manual got any potential returnees back. Will they. This is two years of high school missed for Youngman. Too bad. Great kid!

Re: Realignment Uh-Oh

I'd look A-10 or add football. I'm afraid the changes in the future could leave BU scrambling. I'm no expert though. Just grasping.

Re: TAYLOR BRUNINGA- ILLINI BLUFFS

Years ago a friend watched Mark Aguirre play at Morton. When he left they all said he's nothing special. They got in the car as the radio announcer said he had. 38 points and 20 rebounds. So easy he didn't look great. I think people will be saying I saw him in HS about Taylor.

Yes it was. IB led quite a bit but Farmington turned up the pressure and IB didn't hold up. Hike court helps but Farmington earned it

Re: Galesburg Silver Streaks 2016-2017

Saw the Canton game. Galesburg plays hard and made the plays that players in good programs make in beating an above average Canton team. Galesburg wasn't the dominant machine I expected. Solid would be more apt.

Re: TAYLOR BRUNINGA- ILLINI BLUFFS

Saw the game last night. Farmington simply played harder and took the game from IB. Taylor is going to have a very nice and potentially great college career. He reminds me potentially of the Baker kid from Wichita State. I know that's a reach but if he blossoms that's him. He will get some big offers.

Re: UT Arlington

3-20 and 5-12. You can discuss the referees and calls forever. I don't think I've ever seen a team lose and say the refs were good. Imagine what you'd be discussing if that were 8-20 and 9-12. You can work on shooting. Refs will be refs.

Re: Realignment Uh-Oh

A Bradley D3 football team would be an attractive destination for a lot of kids. It could lay the groundwork for more and also enhance conference options. 100 kids at 25k per is 2.5 million. Helps enrollment and student life.

Move to campus and play in a facility like other privates. Illinois Wesleyan and Illinois College. Both similar arenas!im not sure of the answer but winning cures all. Stay at Carver and build!
