Re: Exciting Times

Don't like to dwell too much in the past, I would rather look forward, however the Simmons philosophy created a wicked circle. He played a conservative style because he viewed the MVC as a 50-60 pt. league, and to some extent he was right. So, his recruiting net wasn't very wide because there were ...

Re: Yarborough arrested again

Byrd is a great coach and Belmont is a class act. I would always want them to beat the Redbirds, don't care if we are in the same conference they are. I would like to trade them in for Belmont to be honest :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Coach’s Show - Radio

I only caught a brief part where Matthew Graves was interviewed. I have met him and I like him a lot. He is a good guy and I could see him coaching the Aces down the road someday. He is a funny guy and knows what is going on. Class act imho.
Go Aces !

Re: Game Thread: Aces at Xavier

No idea. I have no information and only a guess. Was he ill or slightly injured? If so, that explains it. If not, my guess is the staff did not feel he could help us in this game is why he did not play. If this is the case, the question would be....not to start any rumors and speculation only on my ...

Re: Game Thread: Aces at Xavier

I'm late to the party here, did go to the game on the bus trip which was a great time. I would encourage anyone to try and make the next one, very cool. I know in reality there is no such thing as a moral victory...but that is as close as you can get to one. This team showed what they are capable o...

Re: Game Thread: Aces at Xavier

What I witnessed today is a little peak into the future. We played hard, gutty and never gave up. We spread the floor, hit some 3s and did all we could for having such a short bench and being so small inside. I really liked what I saw. It's great that we are playing some good teams early to see how ...

Re: Illinois - Nov 8th Scouting report

This was brutal tonight, and it might be equally brutal at Xavier on Saturday. But Walter is starting from zero here. As I've posted before, I really don't care about the record this season -- I care about building a foundation for future success that Simmons never even tried to build in the first ...

Re: AVAILABLE PLAYERS NEEDED

Apparently, UE followed protocol by not releasing info on Will Becker prematurely. UE has complied with NCAA regulations regarding Dru's transfer and has refused to lie for Missouri. In both instances some of us were rushing to judgment about UE's secrecy and intentions. I believe we were so trauma...

Re: AVAILABLE PLAYERS NEEDED

If his knees were that bad, why did he sign here? Why didn’t the coaches know of this? Were there no red flags from high school or AAU ball? Our coaching staff was put together late in the recruiting game. I am sure they looked at every player they could. Becker was supposed to visit Wisconsin by s...
