Re: Ball State Watch Party - Aces High Club

Great bar. Great owner. Great food. And Doc's sponsoring 4th fouls on the opposing team players is a real hoot. That's the kind of sponsorship I can get behind.

Re: Did I miss something?

I see a lot of that on sports websites where the people who generate the information aren't paid to research anything. They are paid to produce websites. It would seem that somebody had to offer the original lie that will now be part of college basketball facts, since everybody who looks at the web...

Re: Game Thread - Texas Southern at Evansville 11/18 noon

I am with Goacesgo...I am really shocked/floored whatever you want to call it, by the growth in this group in just 4 games. Really good game today...didn't shoot as well but still put points up. Defense was much, much better today as well. Much more tenacity. In addition to what IBleedPurple said a...

Re: Attendance

It may be a surprise to many who only watch ESPN games and are obliged to watch TV commercials during timeouts but time-out promotions, boring as they may, are common at live basketball games throughout the country. They are part of the revenue stream. If you don't like watching someone find a cardb...

Re: Attendance

Truthfully, outside the select few, the attendance at college sporting events has been in steady decline for quite awhile. It isn't likely they will get the fans back. A couple of reasons for that, the main one being there is just too many other things people would rather do with their time. I was ...

Re: Game Thread - Kentucky Wesleyan at Evansville

More defense also inevitably means more fouls and foul-outs. We have very little depth in the front court even with Dainius. Losing Will Becker certainly added to that. The strategy may be to accept high scoring games and to win them with hair trigger range. That's a departure from Marty's Lost Deca...

Re: Game Thread - Kentucky Wesleyan at Evansville

KJ could be the leading scorer when all is said and done but can he keep up with the several players capable of raining down 3s? Guessing who will be the leading scorer each game will be near impossible this year. Maybe the leading rebounder, too. Feehan grabbed 9 boards, more than twice as many as ...

Re: Midday with Mike
