Re: Has our media finally arrived?

There's some interesting questions here the media could consider asking. The only question I'd like to be ask is, Why does KJ cross mid court stop and observe? This kid has played his whole life faking, faint, quick step, blow by, spin, break down defenses, score or dish out. He looks like he's pla...

Re: Has our media finally arrived?

I've talked with a friend (a UE fan who reads this board) about this before, but one thing I would do if I worked for UE or had the resources was organize a survey of some sort that would attempt to find what the fans really thought about the program and what the 250,000 - 300,000 people out there w...

Re: Has our media finally arrived?

You can't go often, until you go for the first time in 20 years. I see your point, and that is what really disappoints me about the 2015-16 season. I think that team would have been everyone's upset pick in R1 and received a lot of coverage. Even a 1 and done that year would have been a boost to UE...

Re: Has our media finally arrived?

To be fair it is not just Evansville that is down in basketball attendance. It is across the board in college basketball. Even Kentucky is down as much as 15% in attendance from last year (depending on how you slice and dice the numbers) and they have been first or second in average home attendance...

Re: Aces @ UNI

For the record, with the exception of Crews very weak teams towards the end, his teams never played liked this on offense. Never. They attacked. They got abused on the boards and on D at times. But he had teams that could shoot and score except his last year or so. I’ve seen a lot of old Crews game...

Re: Aces @ UNI

On a positive note we lose absolutely nothing next year. Billy Preston said it in an old rock and roll song. "Nothing from Nothing leaves Nothing". If we don't get players who can shoot the ball, and score, we will be looking at another Thursday team. People who know how to recruit would ...

Re: Aces @ UNI

For the record, Jim Crews played a 6 man rotation, rarely a sophomore, never a freshman, and dunks were frowned upon. The game changed, he refused to, and we were exactly where we are now, stuck in the mud. If you call 4 NCAA tournaments and 2 NIT's stuck in the mud, I don't really know what to tel...

Re: Aces @ UNI

What ever happened to KJ driving to the basket. It's been shut down. The MVC teams are good enough at scouting it doesn't take them long to figure out how to stop someone who cannot make a jump shot. We've seen it before with Gibson, Lacey, and Troy Taylor. Recruit a player who cannot shoot and thi...

Re: What the Aces need to do to avoid the play-in game

I agree Austin, 9-9 is what it’s going to take. Thanks for laying it all out. Unfortunately I agree with AD and Acecard...I don’t think we are going to be able to do it. I think the order AD laid out is probably the most likely games we can win. I think we will win one more game. If we do win the ne...
