All good, Chad.
Good luck. I think you are coming onto the beat at an exciting time!

Re: Top 3 least favorite Valley fanbases

Agree with muni. Never had an issue at a basketball game. On the other hand, sitting smack in the middle of the Miami section for the Louisville trip to the Russell Athletic Bowl game was a challenge...until Teddy Bridgewater demolished "The U" in the first half. By the end of the 3rd Qtr....

Re: Pat Hickey---Thanks and Good Luck!

PAT, you are a talented guy, and IMHO, you'll be successful in whatever you choose to do in the future. Selfishly, I'd be thrilled to have you be "the face of the Aces" to the Tri-State. I know that is unlikely, but it is a role that UE definitely needs to fill. Best wishes as you begin yo...

Re: 2019 MVC Predictions

Maybe there is a more difficult league to predict than the MVC, I don't know. However, it will surprise me if we finish worse than 9-9, and if we get on a run, ala last year's Bradley team, we could do very, very well. Our starting 5 in '19-20 will be 15 pts. a game better than last season's team. I...

Re: Peace Ilegomah

Agree 100% on Dixon. Put 20 lbs. on his frame, and we have a potentially huge contributor. It may be 2nd semester before he is fully engaged in WMc's system, but I think we may have a gem with Demontay.

Re: Peace Ilegomah

Walter is probably the best thing to happen to Peace. He's a project requiring patience, and we should not expect big things from him. That said, waiting until second semester might be OK. Seeing some real game competition, with the expectation to play, is different than seeing it when one has to si...

Re: Thoughts on Mark Spencer

Every AD at UE's level has their strengths and weaknesses. I truly believe that Spencer is pretty good at the compliance and $$ side of things. Budgets at our level are very tight, so this is always a focus. Conversely, I think we can do much better in terms of promoting ALL UE athletics. I don't th...

Re: Purple Aces Coaches Caravan set for five stops

This is NOT the way to announce a cornerstone game like UE at Purdue in 20-21. It should have been on every TV channel, the Courier, and the UE BASKETBALL web site. It has been said that the local media doesn't show interest in UE PR, but that isn't true, especially in this case. This is not a devel...

Re: Is this the new UE logo

I'm OK with the logos, the attempt to get away from misidentification of UE as Evansville Univ. or Evanston Univ. or placing us geographically somewhere near Chicago. I get all that. Regardless of the logos and mascot change, I would like to see more evidence of initiatives that are fueling growth f...
