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 Who were the "number of players" who were "shown the door" by DM? Were they easier to dismiss because they had minor roles? Were...

Re: Preseason predictions

Standing in line at the grocery this afternoon and spot one of the college basketball magazines. They are predicting a 10th place finish for the Aces. I call BS. They are primarily P5 magazines. They most likely spend 15 minutes or less ranking any conference below that. I have yet to see a post-se...

To be clear, that is 350 wearable bank advertisements. I haven't hurried for one of those since I saw the first one decades ago. When they hurl one into the crowd, I duck.

Re: Maui Mainland Tournament - Nov 17-18

Too bad, it's an Hawaiian thing. Could have deleted The Silverswords and replaced them with USI. Could have filled The FC, both nights. USI is 0-4 vs UE and the last meeting was a blowout at the Ford Center with 3000 people dressed up as empty seats and after about the first ten minutes the USI fan...

Re: Todd Golden ESPN+ Article

Allow me to clear up what I was stating earlier, as it seems to have flown over some heads. My rant was not about customers having to pay $5 a month to see MVC basketball on ESPN+. Truth, I could care less if anyone on this forum did or not. Your money and how you spend it is not my call, and does ...

Re: Sam Cunliffe

This kid seems to be a bit of a "head case" to me. Quit on his second DI school, in 18 months. As well as attending three prep schools prior, due to an attitude problem. What? Arizona State coach Bobby Hurley said “I loved coaching him.” Kansas coach Bill Self said "“Even though we h...

Re: 2018 Team

If you don't believe there is even the slightest chance a team that lost 60% of their minutes played and 70% of their scoring from the previous season, could, probably, might, maybe not win as many games the next year when the majority of its competition has improved, I'm not sure there is much deb...
