Re: Will the Aces finish last?

Good points in the above posts Here is what I’m going to go with 1. Illinois St. - To me, they have the most talent. I am not a fan of Muller, obviously he can recruit, but he has underachieved in the past when he has had superior talent. 2. Loyola - Good core coming back and a solid recruiting clas...

Re: Game Times

AD Mark Spencer was kind of enough to get back with me and state his rational for moving the game time to 6pm. I appreciate his sensitivity to what he is trying to achieve...I do get it. But my firmest belief is that the sharp decline in attendance has much more to do with the product on the floor,...

Re: Will the Aces finish last?

Hopefully we'll know more on Wednesday...for now I'll go on record and say best case - 7th. Worst case 10th. Just too many question marks and too much inexperience at the D1 level. It's a huge jump. If we can really be a high octane offensive team we will be able to win some games by just outscoring...

Re: Hoopfest 2018 - Oct 17th

Honestly have no idea how he will do it, but definitely looking forward to it!

Just anxious to see the new guys and hopefully see some improvement in the returning guys.

Re: DeAndre Williams

It does appear that this was known for a while before the announcement. We had to hear about it through a Bradley fan on an MVC garbage site. The cynic in me suspects that UE didn't want to step on season ticket sales. They were happy to keep us excited and ignorant of the facts ($$$). I wonder whe...

Re: DeAndre Williams

The other thing I will add, this makes it much more clear as to how he ended up here. A lot of other schools probably passed because they didn't want someone who couldn't play right away. McCarty rolled the dice and appealed to let him play right away and it failed. If Williams is that good, it's a ...

Re: DeAndre Williams

This is bad, but it isn't the end of the world. I had a bad feeling that rumor was true... At least he's still enrolled and will likely just need to sit out the year. This year will be ugly...but remember Crews' first year, 8-19. 2nd year - MCC champs, 3rd year NIT, 4th year NCAA. On the bright side...

Re: 2019 NC PG Marcus Henderson

That was quick! Great news, I watched his highlights for the first time today. I love his passing ability, definitely has some point guard instincts. He seems like he has a high BB IQ too. I wouldn't say he's super athletic, which to me is honestly a good thing...we've had our share of "long/at...

Re: 'Fun times' arrive for Aces' players

Thanks for sharing that, very cool. Wish we could back to doing things like that. And yes, I am pretty sure that was the first season of the sleeves. There are a lot of games on youtube from that season and they wore them that year. Pretty sure in Crews' first season they wore the traditional tank t...

Re: Game Times

I agree totally. I guess, here is the way I would put it. Have you ever heard of a concert or any sort of entertainment event starting in the middle of the afternoon or at 6:00 PM on a weeknight?? I have not...any concert I've ever heard of starts at 7:00 or later. How about NBA games, I looked at t...
