Re: Coaching Candidates

D&B Jans can coach even though he’s a bag. He’s not coming here. Not a chance. He will get a bigger job in time. Illinois State is not an attractive national job imo. This is an avg middle of the road job in an average middle of the road league. I think the next coach (in 4-5 years) will likely be s...

Re: vs Bradley, 7 pm, ESPN2

Dan comported himself better than he did in Peoria. I was happy to see that. I wasn’t happy to see my team out scored at home 65-48 over the final 37 minutes. I despise guaranteed contracts for coaches that make it impossible to fire them. If scholarships are broken down to 1 year renewable agreemen...

Re: vs Bradley, 3 pm, ESPN2

i hope we don't embarrass ourselves on national TV. I hope HCDM comports himself better than his wretched performance in Peoria a couple weeks ago.

anything over and above this is gravy and can be considered huge progress.

Re: @ UNI, 2/13/19, 7 pm, ESPN+

About what I expected. Pretty typical road effort for this group. Just a slightly below average team in a slightly worse than atrocious league. Poorly coached. Weak minded. Very soft team and program. A loss Saturday would be sobering for many. At this point the players are likely counting down the ...

Illinois State + 5.5 Over under 133 The idea that we are a 5.5 pt underdog with our entire team back against a team with 1 starter and 1 backup back and a new head coach who was an assistant coach to the guy who as been at his school 6 years with everyone back is just wrong. It reeks of how little ...

Re: @ Missouri St - 3 pm - ESPN3

This game, and really the whole MVC season, is a swamp. But a very complex one. A swamp with many political overtones and resonances that can't be fathomed at the present time, but need the distance of the future to give it a perspective so that you can truly have a point of view, and realize the v...

Re: 2019 Interest - based on tweets and follows

I’ll take a slow release with great results over a quick release and cinder blocks breaking the glass on the board. His shot release will quicken once he gets used to game speed. The foundation of his shot is good. Plus, it’s within the rules to design plays, screens and ball movement to get open lo...

Re: 2019 - Chris Payton, 6-7/205, SF, Bloomington, IL

Bryan Mullins will either the best thing that ever happened to Chris Payton or the worst. I’m interested to see what happens with his recruiting after Mullins is named HC in Carbondale. My bet is Payton ends up at Prep School and re-opens his recruitment. But if he goes to SIU and Mullins can connec...

Re: MVC Game 11

Long time ago, but I remember ISU being a 14 seed after winning the MVC tournament in 1990. That was in the days when the MVC tournament was played at ONE campus and 1990 was our year thanks to the new arena. We were not the top seed for the tourney. For those too young to remember, we were tied wi...

I've penciled in Mullins as the next HC at SIU.
Agreed

Which could very well mean Dan loses Brendan to SIU also.

I know it’s tough to get back up after an emotional game but the sting of the loss at Valpo has to be used.
