Re: Gargoyles @ Redbirds 1-17-18 6 p.m.

The universe is nearly Normalized. Beat them in Peoria and we're back to .500 all time in the rivalry. That's a nice run of consistently beating them to put ISU in this position. Not the prettiest game last night, but got the job done. Next up, chopping down the trees in TH. Hopefully I'll see some ...

Re: Ramblers @ Redbirds 1-10-18

True. Just more frustrating when you have 3 great pieces and failed to put enough with them to compete for something meaningful. The bottom of this roster reminds me of some late Bender era squads. I really think there's still potential for Tinsley to turn into the 4th "Big". Outside of shooting he...

Re: MVC Game 5

Hey Valpo, welcome to the Valley, how does a 1-4 start sound? The funny thing is, if UNI was playing better there's a chance they could actually lose their next 4 games and be sitting at 1-7 heading in to the Evansville game.

Re: MVC Stats

I also don't believe WT is one of our 3 worst defenders, nor does he belong in Tier 3. Why? He leads the team in blocks with 16. Fayne is second with 15. He is second on the team in total rebounds: 84 vs. Fayne's 98, but WT is #1 in defensive rebounds with 69 vs. Yarbrough's 62. Phil makes his chedd...

Do you have to have a pay subscription to that or does it come standard?

Re: Sycamores @ Redbirds 12-31-17

but the fact remains that this team needs to fully learn what it takes to win Hein. Gassman. Litwiller. And a small school young freshman in Bruninga who is going to be pretty good but is overmatched in a lot of ways right now. Reflect on those names. They ARE learning, despite the odds. Still half...

Re: Sycamores @ Redbirds 12-31-17

Last I remember winning games was what’s important. We won. Whether some guys should/should not be playing, who made the biggest mistakes, who hustled the most/least . . . Doesn’t matter. We could find fault with EVERY player on this team in this game. Screw it. We won. Winning in March matters. Ev...

Re: Evansville Thread

Purple Redbird....Your logic seemed sound, but your scores, IMO, did not match the logic. You say we beat them by 18 with those 2 guys, but only by 15 without them. ?

Re: TEAMS IN BOWLS THAT WOULDNT BEATMOST MVC TEAMS

People are missing the point of the cost vs the actual gain. When Budweiser spends 1 million dollars on a super bowl ad...the value of the money spent i's not measured by how much beer is sold the next day. It's more about an ongoing branding/advertising expense that promotes long-term sales as wel...

Re: Birds in the Media

Good instincts on the glass. Attacks the boards aggressively when locked in . Greatly improved shooter. Flat-footed but 38.5 percent from 3 and 80 percent from the free throw line. Has the frame and length to be a versatile defender when engaged Improvement areas Needs to be more consistent in his ...

Rey has "favorited" my Twitter posts that have players and Coach Muller signing for my daughter on her mini-basketball post-game both times I have posted them. He is definitely paying attention to what is being posted about the program. Love seeing a young guy locked in like that already.

Re: UIC Flames game

If we beat UIC, go 13-5 in conference play, and win one game in the Valley tournament that’s 20 wins. Given the setbacks to start the year, I see NIT potential this year if not better. 20-11 (13-5) with a few quality wins in the process would be NIT-worthy I would think. Better yet, let's just win ...

We'll be there, perched in AA.

Re: Illini LB Tre Watson and OL Megginson - transferring where ??

Guys, like I said the first time: His brother plays for NDSU. My guess is if he doesn't go to an FBS in FLA, he's going to NDSU to play his final collegiate season with his brother. It makes everything much easier on his mother.

Re: vs Tulsa - 12/2/17 - 3 pm - NBC Sports Chicago Plus

I was wondering could the reason WT wasn't in the game was bc of shooting? Maybe HCDM wanted Gassman to spread the floor? I would have to say this could be the reason. There were many times Tinsley was left wide open and not covered. The only downfall to this strategy is on the Defensive end. There...
