Re: Valpo

I get it...but hoping to finish as the 3 in order to arrange the "right matchup" for our first tourney game is really tricky. Personally, I'd just rather try to find a way to the 2 seed...I think playing a 7 seed that already played a full game 18 hours earlier is the absolute best matchup we can g...

Re: Valpo

Biggest game of the year!!! Win at Valpo coupled with a Loyola loss in Springfield and we control our own destiny to get the 2 seed. yes, but those two outcomes put the Bears much more likely as our opponent in the 2-7 game...I want the Drake Actually, not necessarily true. It would still depend on...

Re: Rienk Mast

As for Thomas, he was not going to start as a freshman. The only reason he did see action was because of DB injury. I think if he bails now, it would be a mistake. Stay and compete with Nolan to become the point guard that we will need. Nolan is not a point guard. Neither Nolan nor McAdoo are PGs w...

Re: Valpo

We have a huge opportunity Sat. night at Valpo , keep winning and have a chance still of finishing first after UNI lost again last night. We have the talent to win another road game, will not be easy but winning championships is never easy. Hoping for decent unbiased refs. We have the talent to win...

Re: Rienk Mast

Don’t know if we’ve talked about this enough, but he is going to be unstoppable next season. Would be nice to have a solid 1-2 shooting punch of Tahvanainen and Mast to go along with Eli and JaShon. Another shooter, a slasher that can get to the rim and the line, someone who has a solid IQ and A/TO...

Re: Braves vs. Bears

Malham is the worst referee I've seen at Carver all year long...by a pretty significant margin...and that's saying something....because there's been a lot of bad refereeing in that building this year. For this year: 1) Malham by a wide margin 2) Zelton Steed 3) Randy Heimerman HM) Gerry Pollard, Ro...

Re: The Quest for a 4-way tie for the Championship

Bump. Is this quest actually still alive? Not quite. A 3-way tie at 13 wins still exists as a possibility, but SIU would be out as they have no more games to flip to get there (1 game @ UNI) A 4-way tie could exist at 12-6 but that would take: - UNI losing 2 of their final 3 including needing to lo...

Re: The Valley

Well as evidenced by this thread, the smart folks at the Enterprise Center must know their fanbases well enough to avoid selling the good beer by the Bradley section. I'm sure this is a joke, but they don't rotate the offerings based on who is in what section... If that were the case, they would on...

Re: The Valley

Yes. Give me a season where games matter in February. They matter this year. It has been a fun season as a Bradley fan and an MVC follower. 100% The only nice thing about getting multiples teams in the NCAA is more $$ to BU via the MVC tournament units. Personally - I don't watch many college games...

Re: The Valley

I agree with you on this. Was starting to waver and reconsider a couple losses ago, but it was an uneven non con overall. Maybe that changes next year. Some good young players in the league. As it stands now, for this season, we have a very interesting conference race. That won’t lead directly to a...

Re: The Valley

Unpopular take --- Northern Iowa isn't an at-large quality team this season. They honestly aren't that good. The league is quite a bit better than last season overall, but the at large quality team isn't there. The lack of a bench is really starting to catch up to them --- and at the worst time. Re...

Re: The Valley

Looking at it, I am thinking the best possible outcome for Bradley this weekend would actually be for both Loyola and UNI to win, as well as Drake. Drake has to get to 9 wins and I don't anticipate them winning their final 2 games. Missouri State can't get to 9 or they end up as the 6-seed. Again, i...

Chance of PIG appearance: Evansville - 100% (locked into 10) ISU - 100% (locked into 9) Valparaiso - 66% MO State - 65% Drake - 40% Indiana State - 30% SIU - 0.004% Top seed is down to 4 teams, but its over 70% likely the top 2 are filled by UNI and Loyola in some order, while Bradley is the overwhe...

If we aren't going to pass Loyola, we would be better off for them to lose out or go 1-2. If they only get to 8 wins, they most likely are a Thu team ...
