Re: Drake's Tremell Murphy arrested after accidental shooting

It’s possible. It’s possible they weren’t either. Possible but I'd bet the house that they were. College off campus party without drinks is not a party unless we're at Liberty or a Utah school and even in those environments I would not right it off. :D I understand how college works. I just think i...

Re: Drake's Tremell Murphy arrested after accidental shooting

The article states it was an off campus property. I also didn’t read where alcohol was involved. Bradley didn’t get Tremmell and Anthony Murphy because Darian Devries hired their JUCO coach. Kind of sealed that deal. The statement was it happened at a party, I doubt they were all drinking soda and ...

I can’t imagine that Drake allows students to carry any sort of firearm or have it in on campus housing.
Agree, comes down to whether or not they believe athletes that are good and important to the team get a free pass like M.Y. did at ISU.

Re: Drake's Tremell Murphy arrested after accidental shooting

The lying to police leads you to believe it was no accident in him discharging the gun, was probably an accident as far as other person being shot yet guns and alcohol and under age persons are not a good mix.

When teams win consistently in the league in which they compete that means they have above average talent. It spans more than a week, a month or even one season.

A few teams had lottery picks but did not do as well. Why? In the NBA team D is what separates the average teams with the best. Those with average talent also tend to do better with a better assist to turnover ratio. BU has average talent so they need to make each and every possession count. BU nee...

Re: Bradley's depth 19/20 season

I hate to comment on ex coaches as it has no meaning to our future, would rather talk about Coach Wardle and this years team. I think we still have great team depth even with the injuries . I for one look forward to the start of this season.

When we play slower in the last 30 years we have been good. Give me the Mo years and the last 2 years of Wardle. We will be good next year, and I can’t wait for it. . The game is different now with a shorter shot clock so you need to be a lot better offensively. Molinari"s offense would not work in...

Re: Ville and Mast

We could have a top 30-35 (if not even better) frontcourt this season, if Boya can stay healthy and really develops over the course of the season. He really needs the non-conference though to settle in, IMO. We are going to a nightmare for teams down low with Childs/Bar/Henry/Boya. . . Throw Gabrie...

Re: Mitchell Trubisky

I think Pace will see what happens this season and then if Mitch does not improve look to see who is available in the draft or trade market for next season. I really believe the offense looked bad because of not playing against real competition in the pre=season games.

Re: Ville and Mast

Unless Boya can develop a consistent offensive game to his repertoire he'll be in the game to protect the rim #1 and rebound #2. I'd bet good money that Mast will be a more complete player but which one will be more valuable will be subjective and subjected to the team's needs. I hope both players ...

Right or wrong, it always seemed as if some players were reluctant to shoot under Mo. Not on his good teams. Maybe Kerry Burrell but he wasn’t a good shooter so it was smart for him not to shoot. When he had great asst. coaches on his staff his teams were great to watch, not so much once he lost Ju...

Hopefully both give us decent contributions as we need their help inside the paint.

Re: Chicago Bears 2019

Hard to be a dominant offensive line when you pass block 85% of the time. Defensive linemen just get to tee off on you. Agree, when you do not run the ball enough it makes it much easier for the defense to attack your O-line. Mitch to me is either going to be the problem or the solution moving forw...

Illinois is more then likely a year away, coach is getting top notch recruits but it takes 5 years in football to turn things around in the right direction.

Exciting season ahead! GO BRAVES! How can anybody not be excited as we are the tour. defending champs and represented the Valley well in the NCAA Tour. Coach is going to run a fast paced offense which should push up our point totals, that in itself will make for a more fun team to watch this season.

This schedule is perfectly fine besides the fact that both ISU games are not on Saturdays. Nothing can be perfect though. I like MSU at home late in the year and love Loyola at home on the final day.
