Re: 2019 BU recruiting

Do you seriously believe that Cameron Krutwig will not play pro basketball? I mean...Auston Freaking Barnes has played pro basketball for three seasons in Europe. Krutwig just won Freshman of the Year in the Valley...he is a legit 6'9"...he has really, really good feet...he's a really skilled post ...

Re: Always a Brave

Numerous Bradley players each decade have had NBA talent or a least gotten looks via the D-League or private workouts (latest were Granger, POB, Zach, Walt, even Jeremy Crouch ( https://bradleybraves.com/news/2008/6/18/1481408.aspx ), but that all came to a screeching halt when Joanne hired Geno an...

Re: Deadspin: Mid-Majors Uniting to Bust NCAA "Cartel"

How about the grand compromise - the computer picks the teams, and the committee seeds them. That work for everyone? The human element, eye test, and bias still get their day in the sun. I think this is the best way to make everyone “happy”. Someone is always going to moan and groan, but this way i...

Re: Other Valley schedules

Ole Miss should play Bradley but Bradley shouldn’t play SEMO? I see this kind of bait-and-switching a lot, and it's apparently a way to deflect discussion from the point at hand. And of course, there is also a valid point -- if BU wants to play up, it needs also to play down for up & coming program...

After yesterday’s comeback win, we haven’t really come out with a lot of intensity today. the team just went 7-1 on a homestand. It’s ok to actually enjoy games. Also have an almost identical...

Waiting for Addison Russell to do something for this team. He’s only slashing .329/.386/.481 in June for an .867 OPS when the league average is around .730ish. His OPS+ for June is 143.... To be fair, though, most of his production has come over the past few days and most of his hitting has only be...

Re: Paying NCAA Athletes

So what if they have a huge advantage over other students? Other students arent creating income for the University. I’m not suggesting to offer the cash to players. I’m just poking fun at people trying to make the argument that the current system is good because of the “value” of the scholarship. T...

Re: Paying NCAA Athletes

As Jay Bilas has often said. If the "six figure valued education" is such a great deal why not let it stand on its own merit? Everyone knows the "value of the education" is a joke as no school is going to offer the player the supposed cash equivilant . But if it IS such a great deal why not offer i...

Re: Paying NCAA Athletes

A good deal to you is not the same as a good deal to someone else. A group of people “in charge” determined what the “good deal” was and then expected everyone else to think its the same “good deal”. Offer the scholarship or the cash equivalent. Let the player decide what a good deal is for him. Do...

Re: Paying NCAA Athletes

The schools shouldn’t pay the players. The athletes should be able to make whatever they can off their likeness. This also satisfies title IX requirements because all athletes have the same opportunity to earn income without the school having to foot the bill.
