Re: Dave Reynolds banned?

I agree with Steve Stein's tweet on the matter .... If Bradley wanted its basketball team to get national attention, it succeeded. The university is being rightfully skewered because of its treatment of 29-year beat reporter Dave Reynolds of the Journal Star. Have read the article and everyone's pos...

Re: Dave Snell's game notes.

I actually enjoy Snell's game notes. Not trolling, not kicking BU fans while they're down. I just thought it was very telling as to the state of affairs when the only thing they could come up with, apparently, was saying something negative about Drake. I compare it to when I go to purchase something...

Dave Snell's game notes.

Pretty bad/sad when you have NOTHING good or noteworthy to say about your team so you say something bad about the other team. "Drake is third to last in the MVC in defense .... "

Apparently Drake's abysmal defense didn't matter.

Notre Dame had 240 yards and never had a chance. Not seeing the difference is just ignorance About as ignorant as pollsters who th...
