Re: WIU Enrollment Woes

I'm guessing WIU is losing a lot of kids to Iowa and Minnesota. I really don't know that there is a cure for that.
Macomb and Carbondale are nice enough places but you just can't get there from here.

Re: Zenger out at Kansas

Yeah, RedbirdSoxFan, eventually you are bound to get "run out" of somewhere if your career is long enough. Certainly Rick Greenspan's was. I am still trying to figure how somebody, anybody can be soooo bad to be "run out" of someplace to an even bigger program? And then still get a big program job ...

Re: Arch Madness No Longer at Scottrade Center

Chicago? Wintrust I think Chicago would draw better. I get your preference but I don't golf. IMO Chicago has a lot more to offer than St. Louis in any weather. Not a fan of Navy Pier. Tourist trap. Not big on shopping but I do like walking around Wicker Park and West Division. Not a big theatre guy ...

Perk is happy at Ferris. D1 shouldn't be a used measure of success or failure.

Re: Arch Madness No Longer at Scottrade Center

OK, so it was a bad idea... How did everybody who went down there feel about the crowds? They had the upper bowl screened off, and most times the lower bowl seemed barely half full. Kinda of disappointing turnout I thought. I do like St. Louis over having it in Chicago. Moline? WTF I would prefer I...

Re: Offseason Wish List

I really don't want Horton to go. It's valuable space and when you give space away you rarely get it back. Just needs to be better taken care of. . I've been in many amazing new practice facilities. I can't think of a single school that then tore down an existing Fieldhouse. And the bleachers on th...

Re: Arch Madness No Longer at Scottrade Center

The naming rights to the building were sold. There will be an announcement Monday at 10 a.m. to introduce the building's new name. 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 rotatin...

Re: Eight-Man Rotation?

Abdou looks like a kid with a ton of talent, but it's pretty apparent that talent is raw. Let's give him a break and not have unrealistic expectations before his first practice.. Clarence and Bruninga last year. Abdou and Rey this year.
Does anyone remember Key as a freshman? Probably not.

Re: Muller Math

I would believe what the coach said. There's really no reason to lie. Kids talk. Lie's get out. And how would Dan telling the full truth in this scenario benefit him or the program?? Come on now. I don’t have any issue celebrating the situation, but let’s not be naive. He was asked or encouraged to...
