Re: Bradley vs. Evansville

Where's Quick Change when we need them? Always great crowd's when they are the halftime entertainment and Civic Center doesn't have to inflate the numbers!

D.A.Points and Pebble Beach

Don't know the kid, but he is local, a Pekin grad and an Illini. Gotta cheer for him to win today! Great piece in PJS and playing with Bill Murray. :D

Re: Bradley vs. Evansville

Hopeful of a great crowd.Team needs to bring energy start to finish and get the crowd into the game. Nice to see DD stepping up as leader of this team, something we have sorely lacked since Sammy went down. Go Braves!

Re: Joe Allen/ Max Bielfeldt

Remember, JL recruits only "athletes", "projects", or "combos". Those are his words, not mine. Apparently Max doesn't fit any of those.

Re: apathy

I confess, didn't expect a victory and was waiting for a late coaching debacle and another loss. But, after the two wins and playing better as of late, will this administation look at this season differently and give JL a pass? Although only on this forum for a short time, I am a season ticket holde...

Re: Rayvonte Rice

BU will lose another from the same conference. Jordan Nelson of Lincoln is a pure shooter with a quick first step, but being recruited by Creighton and Nothern Iowa.Put on a clinic last night with 48 points. Can even shoot free throws! He made Larry Austin Jr. look like the freshman that he is. I kn...

Re: Potential coaching candidates

Pretty safe to say that the big corporate influence that went into the JL hire won't go into this one. My bet is it will be a Glasser and Cross pick.

Re: Braves win! Braves win!

Loyal BU friends of mine who are also friends of the Merfelds told me recently that he will not talk about the incident with Les that led to his departure from BU. They haven't had a presence inside since he left. Glad for the win today for the players.

Re: BU-UT-Martin Bracket Buster

I was hoping that we wouldn't get UIC again. When you are 6-16 you can't be too picky. UT-Martin sure won't help are RPI! Funny, we used to care about an RPI. How things go so bad so quickly.

Re: Creighton, refs on their way

I have been searching the web for the history of the Bradley vs Creighton game, believed it was January 14, 1979. Peoria had over a foot of snow. My wife and I had to park more than a mile away and walked in the road in snow that was knee high. Tom Apke was the coach for the Bluejays and heavy favor...

Re: If not Les than who?

And we all know that was the real reason Les was hired in the first place. He was what BU referred to as "brand identity"', and could raise the necessary funds to jump start the plan. Everyone was hopeful that he could also coach and recruit, but we all can see how he has had very limited success in...

Re: I think all sane fans can agree....

If you watched the end of the 1st half of today's BU/Wchita State game, it summed up the season. DSE get's mugged going for a layup, but doesn't get the call. JL was upset and had a heated discussion with the official, but Steve Bardo suggested that when you are 0-10, you are not going to get that c...

Re: If not Les than who?

At this point Kevin Brown of Washington would be a better fit. Not that he'd even get an interview, but he could do a lot more with less talent. I keep thinking back to the guy who really wanted the BU job when Les was hired, but never got as much as a sniff. Brian Gregory took the job at Dayton and...

Bradley to Division II?

Rumor mill is flying at the hilltop. Our AD would love to use the new Renissance Center for BU basketball after the flap with the Civic Center last fall. To be more competitive in all sports, Division II would be an option. Anyone else hear this? :queen :( :roll: :roll:

Re: Big Question(s) to be Asked

A great assessment, only Coach Les and President Glasser would like us to forget the teams of 60 years ago due to the scandals and not build the current program on them.

Re: The Curse of Coach Stowell?

Speaking of coaches, did you notice Coach Chuck Buescher at the SIU game? sits near our JL's wife. didn't see her there. Also, I have discussed the announcer situation before. As long as the current one works for BU, we will never get a good assessment of anything. Danny Adams won't last long either...

Re: Coach Les' T costs Brave a win

i totally agree with your assessment. He also has to understand that he will never get any respect in this league, because he cannot win. Status as a long tenured coach goes only so far. Moreover if you watch the after the game hand shakes he never never acknowledges the players or the coaches from ...

I supported his hiring and I too would like to see JL suceed. However, he has had enough time to do this. After watching Dayton manhandle the Illini, I remember when their coach, Brian Gregory applied for the BU job. He was then a Tom Izzou assistant. He made a statement after the process that in es...

Re: So lets be real about this...

Les made the comment after the UNI game that he would be meeting with "the powers to be". To me that meant that he was pushing for a tourney, but was denied. JL had already spent BU funds "bonding" in Brazil. That didn't work either. Think that JL as been put on notice for 2010-11. Was probably told...

Re: Postseason?

Wasn't there a $40,000 entry fee to get into the CBI tourney? Unless that guarantees a home game, I doubt that they would spend the money.
