Re: ACES Survey

I did the survey and filled it out thinking about all the sports and not just the men's basketball which this was clearly asking about more than anything. We should all fill this out and it is great people in charge are asking for opinions from die hard to casual fans so now is our chance to voice o...

Re: Yarborough arrested again

Sure was glad to see the Bradley Braves beat UNI today. First time in many, many years for them to make to the Big Dance. UNI has had enough trips in the last ten years so it's time for someone else to represent The Valley.
Go Braves !

Re: Barry Hinson

Barry Hinson applied for the UE job when Marty was hired. Class guy. He may have gotten the job had the AD and others not fallen in love with bringing Simmons in. Simmons was the sexy pic at the time, but he should have been let go years ago as we all know..he simply was allowed to stay too long. Ho...

Re: Game Thread: Arch Madness #1 - Aces vs Illinois St

Intensity, Toughness....makes me proud of our team ....now let's start hitting those shots...we can do it, ACES! I second that. We have the shortest team, lack depth, lack talent and yet we simply willed our way to a half time lead. Win or lose proud of the effort. Yarbrough was on bench much of th...

Re: Shea Feehan dismissed from team

Academics... From Pat Hickey (@patmhickey): "He was given ample amount of time to turn it around and he did not. On Friday, we got the report. If I would've known earlier, it would've been done earlier. But he did not live up to the expectations of what he's supposed to do in the classroom and...

Re: Tired of Losing in the MVC

I totally agree Evillan, great post. CoachD, I kind of understand what you are saying. My answer would be quite simply, the current players on the roster are not capable of doing the things you are saying without more help and more threats in the floor (your comment on passing dribbling and shootin...

Re: Tired of Losing in the MVC

This season was a necessary evil. Agree with this. The change was a must. Fans have spoken favorably by showing up this year despite the record. I think we are #1 or #2 in the conference despite being last in the won/loss column. Next year will see more fans and more wins. No reason to keep talking...

Re: Game Thread: Aces at Bradley

Credit to the coaches and players for showing a lot of fight. Honestly, that is all I was hopeful we would see the entire year. With our record and knowing we are a Thursday team and gonna finish last, fighting and not quitting shows a lot of class, determination and will to get better. Nobody has b...

Re: Game Thread: Aces At Loyola

At the beginning of the broadcast tonight the announcers made a statement to the effect "the transfers on Evansville's roster for next year should have them in the top five of the conference." Did anyone else catch that statement? I thought it was interesting..top five...hmmm...wonder wher...

Re: Game Thread: Aces At Loyola

Put Feehan in...wasn't he the top scorer the last game, and he can hit the 3...worth a try! Feehan scored 13 points in the first meeting against Loyola too. Walter is playing every player he has, walk on's included. I think he is giving as much time as he can to the younger guys who are coming back...
