Re: Arch Madness No Longer at Scottrade Center

We are having a debate about something that would never happen. WOULD NEVER HAPPEN. The Mens Valley Tournament will NEVER be in the Quad Cities. NEVER. Soooo, maybe? DoubleDeuce, so you're saying there's a chance then.... https://www.throwbacks.com/content/images/2017/12/CPNlCyhU8AA4k6A.jpg

Re: Zenger out at Kansas

I'm glad you want great things for Redbird Athletics but you continue to cling to your mantra that every AD we've ever hired has sucked at fundraising. You've clung to this position even though it ignores the surrounding circumstantial evidence and it clearly isn't logical or the truth. Sheahon Zen...

Re: Arch Madness No Longer at Scottrade Center

I would prefer Indy over StL. Indy does a great job with those type of events. Rotate it around would be my preference.... StL Indy and Chi As much as I'd love to have it in Indy once, I do not see that happening...it is farther east than the most eastern Valley school. But it's downtown is as fun ...

One has been gone for awhile, with another heading out to join that Lyons soon.
I thought Matt already left. There were social media posts saying that he was leaving. My bad if I am wrong on that.

Re: Arch Madness No Longer at Scottrade Center

I was excited that it might be moving out of St. Louis. It might be better in Moline...in a smaller arena, cheaper hotels, etc. Heck, I'd be okay with them just rotating it throughout the valley universities...we could get the home court advantage once in a while. That might put us over the top. Wa...

Re: Loyola Ramblers

I just find it funny that we all automatically think we will be better than a Final Four team who returns the league FOY and MVP. If we were returning Paris Lee and someone said they would be better than us we'd all laugh at them. But hey, let the kool aid flow free! I guess we will know in March. ...

With him doing this, I think he may become one of the board's favorites next year - I know he will be one of mine. Now we don't have to set a high expectation - anything he does will benefit the team. Can't complain about that. What a selfless act - really says something about the character we all k...

Some more information after digging around... Tiarra is listed in the McLean County public records for the incident. Milik is not. Just food for thought. It will be interesting what happens. If this is some act of domestic violence, Milik needs a harsh penalty. But why would this NOT be in his recor...

Re: SIU athletics $26 million in the hole

Very sad. I know a lot of good people that are proud SIU grads. I hope they can dig out of the sinkhole. I agree. They could be someone we root against in sports and we DO compete against them to get students, but you do not want to see this happen to them. It is still a good school with good people.

Re: Madison Williams career over

Can he still be around the team and act as a manager or in a similar role in the program?Just curious what the ncaa allows with this exemption. Yes. Just can't play in a game. Many kids in this situation take on a role of a student "coach". I hope he does this if he wants. He deserves being around ...

And coaches son. Not saying it's impossible but seems an odd combo.
So Dan should adopt him.
Seriously, that may actually be the next thing in college basketball...coaches adopting kids for free tuition.
