Re: Bellarmine to announce DI move

My thoughts are that USI wants to be the cream of the crop in DII for the forseeable future. They can sit back and watch the others who have moved to D1 and learn from their mistakes or simply sit back and laugh and watch them spend all that money to go where and do what? Bellarmine is paying a big...

Re: NCAA extends three point line

The 3-pt shot is a neutralizer. It subtracts from the advantage that the deep-pocket power elites have in the recruitment of 5-star bigs. The NCAA has no interest in creating parity across the board. They want the ratings bonanza of an all-elite Sweet Sixteen. Taking points away from 12-seeds and be...

Re: 2019 Non Conference Schedule

Personally I prefer mangos or pineapple. UE is/was trying to schedule USI as our only exhibition game. Never heard how the first meeting went. After the string of beat downs by UE I don't think USI is interested anymore. They do play tough opponents in exhibition games but better to lose 500 miles ...

Re: 2019 Non Conference Schedule

Jack goes to the market and buys five (5) apples for $1.00, and the next day, the same farmer sells him four (4) apples for $0.88 cents. Did Jack get a better deal because his total price was lower? Answer is no. You don't know Jack about apple prices. You'd be lucky to get one apple for a dollar. ...

Re: 2019-2020 Starting Lineup

Givance, KJ, Hall, Deandre and Cunliffe. We won't have an offense anchored in the lane by a one dimensional center like Dainius. All five starters will be facing the basket. Most MVC teams don't have dominating big men so defense is not that big an issue. For the teams that do, Peace will be seeing ...

Re: 2019 Non Conference Schedule

I looked at season ticket prices from last year to this year. Some notes. 1. PSL on all sections remained the same. No increases. 2. Floor seat prices remained the same. Sideline sections went up in price by $1. Corner sections (and by extension end zones) went DOWN by $7 this year. 3. Apparently i...

Re: 2019 Non Conference Schedule

Before we get too excited about that Saturday night game we've been clamoring for because of its attendance "boosting" possibilities, that Saturday night game in 2014 against IUPUI only drew 3889 fans (300+ below the season home game average) in a year that the Aces had high expectations a...

Re: 2020 PF 6-9 WVA Obinna Anochili-Killen

With one scholarship for next year, this would be my pick . A local boy would be great but I think this young mans skill level is better from all the video I’ve tracked down on both. IMHO Either of them would be great..I think in this case it would be a matter of who would say YES first. I would ha...

Re: 2020 Kiyron Powell

I saw a pleasant world where, before anyone saw the play of 7 newcomers, no one discussed who would transfer a year from now. And then I woke up.

Re: Season Ticket Renewals

With the ticket renewals, did the Athletic Department send a diagram of next year’s seating chart? Personally I think the seating during the OVC tournament looked much better, at least on TV, than the portable bleachers and tarp setup during Aces games behind the basket near the Aces bench. As I’ve...
