Looks like we just brought in two great recruits, they add depth to our front court. Good players are so relevant to the program moving forward. It sure is nice to not have to wait till the spring as far as signing talent.

Re: Opponents thread

Bradley's non-conference schedule isn't all that strong so I hope to see at minimum a 10-3 team heading into conference play. There's really no reason not to expect something close to this with the core group that we have. At a minimum? :lol: Things would have to go perfect to come out at 10-3. I'd...

Re: I wonder how much it would cost

I went to a college game on Saturday that didn't have a big, long intro video on the scoreboard and the game seemed to go off without a hitch and the players seemed to be excited to play. Who knew this could happen? But did they have a t-shirt cannon? We don't even have one anymore, apparently. Hea...

Re: Memphis Phenom Deemed Ineligible by NCAA

Nullifying championships and Final Fours are by the far the most worthless punishments. Agree, the school should be told up front that if you play Wiseman that you will not be invited into any of our post season tournaments. Rules are rules. Time to take a stance on this issue. Never took you as a ...

Re: Memphis Phenom Deemed Ineligible by NCAA

Memphis has chosen to take on the NCAA and the NCAA is not about to roll over without a fight. Several legal experts believe Wiseman will play the entire season. Now, what happens after will determine whether Memphis forces the NCAA to change their ways or whether Memphis suffers tremendous punishm...

Re: In Depth Game Preview: BU vs. IUPUI

I love having game replays available on ESPN+ as I wasn't able to watch the game last night. Congrats to the Braves for their first win of the season. After the St. Joe's game, I dialed back my expectations and just plan to take it one game at a time ... but this team has the pieces to make this a ...

Re: Memphis Phenom Deemed Ineligible by NCAA

NCAA if left to their own device will mess this up and the BCS teams will walk away. That will leave all the other conferences in a very bad spot. I'd also not compare MLB and the NBA. I'd bet that if Peoria had a Bulls minor league team the potential for a pretty good following would be fantastic....

Re: Memphis Phenom Deemed Ineligible by NCAA

KY fans would point to Kanter but I get what you're saying and agree. In reality the NCAA needs to put a plan in place in order to get in front of the players getting paid. They are lucky that the Adidas fiasco has not blown up in their face any more then it has. If the NCAA keeps putting up roadbl...

I respect your point realfan but that is madness! Are you saying the kids will only become BU fans if they have access to the court and direct physical contact with our student athletes? Where does it end? I guess you’d support them cooking the team meals too? Or maybe have little Billy drive the t...

No doubt, because of his poor play, Mitch is under a microscope.

Re: Bradley-St Joe’s

If anyone affiliated with Bradley (fans, players, coaches, etc) expected to go on the road to St. Joe's, with East Coast officials, and then get a favorable whistle then shame on them. Newsflash, when St. Joe's comes back to Peoria next season the Hawks won't get the favorable whistle. This has bee...

Re: Bradley-St Joe’s

The refs had zero to do with Bradley not showing up to play, not rebounding, missing uncontested layups, and the two upperclassman leaders being dogs all night. This game will likely be an aberration. . .as I said, coaching debuts are wild cards. Disagree, we were playing very good until the stripe...

Did not like the substitution patterns. The refs killed us in the first half as I thought we outplayed them by 15. I thought Kingsby should have played more, Gabriel was non existent for a player with his skills. Bar had a good game but should never be in late whether we are ahead or behind. Childs ...

How the F was that a foul on Henry He was 3 feet away watching the guy trip over his teammate.
