Re: Will the Aces finish last?

Pretty good analysis overall. I'll stick with my initial thoughts. 1. ISUr - Toss-up between them and SIU. 2. SIU - If Bol was more proven to be back, could see them above ISUr. Love Barry as a marketer for the conference, but not a big fan as a game coach. 3. Loyola - Good top 4, but not sure beyon...

Re: DeAndre Williams

Imagine we found out today - for the first time - that DeAndre signed with us and has 3 years of eligibility starting next year. We would be ecstatic. I have no problem grinding this season out and waiting to roll out DeAndre, Cunliffe, and Art all at the same time. I agree completely! We all need ...

Re: Illinois St.

Sorry, one last thing. A number of players who have left ISU in the past were shown the door by Coach DM, so he has certainly dismissed players before

Re: Illinois St.

Wow, where to start. While I am a ISU season ticket holder I am a UE fan. I am certainly not making excuses for MY. I get frustrated at times with the lax attitude around player issues as well at ISU. However I also know that what is reported on or is conjecture on message boards is not always factu...

Re: Illinois St.

Greetings all. Definitely will be interesting to see what happens from this. It's a bit strange to me that this is being classified as a hit-and-run by many, but his charges yesterday were misdemeanor and not felony as you see with most hit-and-run accidents. Maybe that's based on the amount of inju...

Re: Sam Cunliffe

Anyone want to call me crazy that I say we finish with a top 5 finish this season even though Sam and Art have to sit this season? They will be practicing with the team, and extra eyes and mind never hurts I would agree with others that top 5 seems way overly optimistic. However, having bodies in p...

Re: Sam Cunliffe

I think Sam made the right decision. He apparently wants to play professional ball and beyond the obvious with the Coaching staff now at UE, what Sam needs most is playing time and exposure. Both of which he will get in Evansville. The hard part will be how the coaching staff manages the talent bei...

Re: 2018 Team

For all of those people who are saying no experience at the head coach or a completely different system than what was used, I will say this. In 1992, another college in Evansville hired a first time head coach for a team that only won 10 games, and lost nearly half of their team after that season. ...

Re: Todd Golden ESPN+ Article

I am not completely clear on how this works but for 5 bucks a month to watch Valley games seems like a reasonable deal to me. I don't subscribe to cable so my TV watching is kind of -- what's it worth to see a program? I think it’s a good deal. It’s not just all Valley games - it’s a slew of other ...

Re: 2018 Team

ISUred and Loyola will be top guns in the MVC this season. Should be a great year for the league. Bradley and SIU look good as well as well and should be very competitive. Aces definitely would have been more competitive with Taylor and Smith and could have excelled under Coach McCarty's up tempo s...
