Re: The valley

Stay out of Thursday games in St Louis and I like our chances. Then if we could somehow land on the opposite side of MSU and Loyola we would be sitting great.

Guys it is a rebuilding year!!! We went to the NIT last year. Dan is a good coach he has a plan! He is so good we will have him for the next 5 years because nobody else is going to hire him.

Re: Ramblers @ Redbirds 1-10-18

If you are ok with rebuilding every four years after making the NIT and having marginal success then good for you. Most people would consider last year a building block moving forward. I guess I will lower my standards and shoot for an NIT two years in a row then rebuild.

Re: Ramblers @ Redbirds 1-10-18

To anyone who says this is a process is funny. Dan is in his 6th year. His process should be fine tuned by now. Is your suggestion that because Dan has been here, the players he brings in every year should automatically warp zone to Paris Lee's Sr year and that they, themselves, are not allowed to ...

Re: Ramblers @ Redbirds 1-10-18

Muller’s coaching out of dead balls is laughable. We very rarely get a good look or just flat turn it over. On offense we force the ball out front to much. Move the ball!!!

Re: Phil Fayne

What was great about him yesterday is he did what he has been doing all year but just finished his opportunities. He attacked the rim and made free throws. Hopefully this trend continues.

Good article on MIlik. He has been a ton so far. The scouts saw a good one yesterday.

Re: Birds @ Bulldogs Wednesday 1-3-18

And games like this make me question Dan Muller. Why is Milik not handling the ball more? Why do you watch guys take bad shot after bad shot?

Re: 2019 - Francis Okoro, 6-9/225, C, Normal Community West HS

With very little knowledge of the situation I would say I like our chances of making the cut. Hometown team and has been around the program. In the end making the final 5 means nothing.

Re: UIC Flames game

Not telling him how to stand just would like to see a little emotion when your getting out played by UIC. So if your happy with one point wins against UIC in a snoozefest then good for you. Last night was the exact reason our attendance sucks. Watching Dan stand on the sidelines in his parachute pan...

Re: UIC Flames game

I think some need to remember what Tinsley was brought here to do and what he has been forced into doing. I think last night was a good example of what he was brought here to do. Play good defense and contribute on offense when it is there. On another note, does anybody else get sick of watching Dan...

Re: Romine and Copeland to begin practicing this week

While it wasn't a suspension I am sure he will have to earn his minutes. Not a real good message from a coach if a guy gets to walk back in and get minutes right away.

Re: ISU vs South Carolina - 11/16/17 - 10:30 AM - ESPN2

If Matt Hein can just steal minutes for us this year that would be great. Having him come in and not turn the ball over along with playing solid defense is what we need from him. It has only been two games but I feel like this team already understands what their individual roles are. I think the las...

Re: REDBIRDS! We may have injuries. It's only an exhibition....

Hopefully some of the Gassman love-fest settles down on here. Good kid but he looked slow against Lewis. His defense is more than a liability.
