Re: Turf Updates

Prefer natural grass.....although expensive and likely not coming back for a long time. I hope the turf plays as safe as it can and we are not cutting corners in terms of making health and safety a priority. Along those lines, I wonder if they still use those little black rubber pellets when install...

Re: King David gone

I look at the Hein-Ndiaye package deal as a success based on a number of factors. First of all, they were both great student athletes and teammates who did things the right way. They were not be best players, but they were no where near the problem. You can win championships with guys like them on y...

Re: Cam Meredith

Most experts still expect Cam to be a Bear on the outside as the #2. He has stiky hands and a nice big frame. Gabriel isn't going to the outside any time soon and Robinson isn't going into the slot. As the article suggests, Meredith has incredible versatility and size. The Bears will probably match...

Re: Wichita Loses

I love the tweet for these reasons: 1. It was heartfelt. Dan feels that there is an unfair system in place and he's calling it out time and time again. In year's past, some of these coach's would say something about how their team got screwed, and move on. It never caught attention. They didn't wan...

Re: Welcome Josh Jefferson!

Look at the fans in the stands....especially after the 1:37 mark and going forward. It's apparent. People don't move their heads, hands, etc. at that speed. Still don't see it. What does the field say? How do you speed up the people in a video but not a clock? Just asking? It's not the entire video...

Re: Loyola

Loyola is class. During their first MVC tourney a couple years back, I had the pleasure to meet and hang out a bit with their A.D. and some of their fans. Just excellent people. Happy for Porter, too. I had Tennessee making it to the Final Four - so it kind of hurt my bracket, but I'll take it. Go R...

Re: Welcome Josh Jefferson!

Thanks for the video. Kid looks good, but the video has been altered and sped up about 15%-20% faster than real time to make him look quicker than he actually is. I hate when they do that. Say what? You can just look at the shot clock and tell it's not sped up. It's just a fast violin. That's calle...

Re: Rumors starting already

Oklahoma wins a whopping 2 games all season away from home. 2 games, as in one more than one.

Two!

Re: 24 Hrs Later

We need better players.....but if we miss on some, we need to be honorable and give them the scholly for as long as they are good teammates and students. You don't build a program by creating a culture of what have you done for me lately amongst your players. The fact that some on here are openly ho...

Re: 24 Hrs Later

I would trade a little bit of this team's height and length, for a little more basketball ability. I think Copeland will make a huge difference in that area. I really hope so, at least. If not, we are in trouble next year. We might have a decent regular season, but we won't be built to do much of an...
