Re: bad news

Unbelievable.... Yes, this is a much bigger loss than Taylor. We're going to really need a lot of people to step up to survive this one. It will pay dividends for guys to continue getting minutes, especially next season. Very sad for Dru, hope he has a full, speedy recovery. the only option I see i...

It's in the middle of the campus you can't miss it.

Re: ACES @ Falcons game thread

This is what I have been waiting for. We have a deep team and he is using all of them. They have really nice spacing instead of the offense bunched around the free throw lane. I know it was Bowling Green and we will face tougher competition in the Valley but if we keep this up we can play with anybo...

Re: Mighty Oaks @ ACES---game thread

First let me talk scheduling. Look at IU.... Marian, University of Indianapolis, Fort Wayne and in a couple of days 0-7 #329 Youngstown state. Duke's played Elon and hopefully we'll far better against them than St. Francis. How dare them scheduling beneath themselves! Since non-D1 teams mean nothin...

Re: Aces vs Number 1

I don't know if Taylor can get back by the Duke game, but if he doesn't, we could be looking at a 50 point loss. You must be real mad at the team. 50 point loss isn't realistic. 20-25 possible. New Mexico hopefully was our "BAD GAME OF THE YEAR". How is that not realistic? Do you really t...

Re: Ryan Taylor

Terrible news but if anything good can come out of this is hopefully we have several guys step up. Get some other guys to gain some confidence so when Ryan comes back we have several weapons. I am worried though without Hainna and with Boo not healthy that we could become really short handed. We hav...

Re: Former University of Evansville coach Jim Crews staunchly defends Marty Simmons

OK, first let me qualify my perspective. 40+ year avid fan / supporter, 99% + attendee, hundreds of away games. So here I go. Coach Simmons; Love his commitments to the boys and team. Great recruiter, great defensive focus, surrounds himself with quality people. His heart has to be in Evansville to...

Re: Former University of Evansville coach Jim Crews staunchly defends Marty Simmons

From a wins and loses perspective exactly what is the "gamble" in changing coaches??? We have not had one meaningful post season game in Coach Simmons tenure. Given the falling fan attendance and interest it may be more of a risk to continue on with the same coach. I can name off some hig...

Re: Former University of Evansville coach Jim Crews staunchly defends Marty Simmons

I can't believe where our program is at. It sounds to me that Coach Crews is trying to sell Marty to the public. That won't happen because of 11 years of not getting anywhere. I know he said winning doesn't really matter but it does. To think we have to settle for what we have is insane.
