Re: The Drake Game

Stronger also does not make smarter.

Jordan would murder players in the league today..

And Jesse Owens...wow I mean, should we start talking about all the advances in training since then?

I didn't realize you were that old...

By the way, how was the Great Depression?

Re: 2018-19 DI Hoops Coaching Carousel

Nebraska's Tim Miles made a reckless comment about still being a millionaire on Jeff Goodman's podcast, which was recorded last Sunday night, in the even he were to be fired as head coach of the Huskers. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaab/bigten/2019/02/21/nebraska-basketball-coach-tim-mil...

Re: Braves-Aces

Just win.

Not Darrell Brown.

Not DLO.

Not the new coach with the new system coming in.

Not the dimmed lights.

Not the slightly stale popcorn.


None of it matters as much.

JUST WIN!

Re: The Drake Game

For what its worth, there was a massive controversy in the Houston NBA game last night where they assert a referee basically controlled the outcome of the game --- to the point where for the 1st time in over 20 seasons, both starting Rockets Guards fouled out of a game. So bad officiating is permeat...

Re: Hawkins' 8th place scoring rank in jeopardy

Mike Daum had 38 tonight which pushed him past the Big O on the all time list, so Hawk may get passed twice in the same season.

Re: Ongoing opponents thread

Can we just conclude this portion of the EIU talk already?

We didnt live down the last time we lost to them, and this time is just as bad, but continuing to talk about this terrible team is just making it worse.

Here's an article from 2016 on Baywatch Higgins which states he makes upward of $3,000/game (plus airfare/travel expenses). He claims the quantity of games worked does not effect his quality. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.si.com/college-basketball/2016/01/28/ncaa-basketballs-most-recognized-refe...

Re: The Drake Game

From what I had been told in the past, guys like Hightower were an exception, not the rule.

What i mean by that is most of these officials drive everywhere if its within a 6 hour period of the previous nights work, many times so that they can maximize their earnings.

Re: The Drake Game

The idea that a 55-60 year old guy can do a D1 men's game in Des Moines on one night, travel to Springfield, MO the next night and do another D1 men's game at a reasonable level is ridiculous. He can't be on top of his game that way. Agree completely here. Impossible. And this is where you have to ...

Wow.... Valpo and UNI with upsets. Unsure why SIU was favored at 2.5 with Valpo winning on their home floor a month ago, and I'm not sure I would consider that an upset, but I guess by betting lines it is. UNI is now the hottest team in the league and I felt going in to tonight they had a real shot...

Happy Trails, Dan Muller.
Only some miraculous run could save him now IMO.... anyone aware of his contract situation????

I guess $$ could save him too....
No...Muller isnt going anywhere.

They are actually OK with him for the most part.

Legitimate question, with all that went down with Drake, given a situation where we can stay out of Thursday and lose the game @ Loyola and Loyola is tied with the Drake for the league.... do we drop that game to keep the Drake out of the NIT spot and cost them a league title?

Re: Preseason previews, projections, predictions, etc.

We WERE ahead of Valpo, but probably not after they update NET again. Given the UNI win, we can assume they are probably playing on Fri now. That leaves us, SIU, ISU, and Valpo for those final couple spots. The upside, we have a sweep against ISU. So does Valpo though. So if you are looking for a mu...
