Becker actually had to stop playing due to medical reasons. Will be interesting to see if he's past that but from what I've heard he won't play again.

Re: MVC Transfers

The league keeps losing its top players and isn’t getting any great transfers in return . The days of Champ Oguchi and Rolen Roberts coming to MVC schools looks to be over. Put this statement in front of actual basketball people and it wouldn’t hold up. Milton Doyle was a 5 star recruit. Clayton Cu...

Re: MVC Transfers

Freeman is the least surprising transfer in the league. He balled out as a freshman and will play 3 years at a P5. With their loses, I would have Valpo as the early favorite to finish 10th. When I saw Hughes play as a freshman, he gave me a similar feeling to Ron Baker. Not that he would have the s...

Re: BU disgraces itself, telling longtime PJS beat writer 'You don't promote the Bradley brand'

I don't know about everybody else, but when I watched the video of the "apology" over on pjstarforums, I didn't actually hear an apology. I heard a lot of double talk, how the two of them talked, and how he tries to teach his players to do the right things. Coach Weirdal reminds me a person my fathe...

Smits gone from Valpo

Big loss for them. Will declare for draft and transfer if he pulls his name out.

Re: Spring Practice is Here, Spack Comments

Okay, moving right along, the first spring update is already on the website after last night's practice. Spack is happy about some of the position groups we're most worried about. Been some shifting around too. https://goredbirds.com/news/2019/3/17/football-spring-camp-report-1-debut-under-the-ligh...

Went do people even bother to go to Disneyland? I haven't been in months because I always felt dumber after having read their nonsense.

Re: A Slow, Painful Death

Same as with my Aces. Players sitting out that look good on paper, but until we see I'm withholding judgement. I'm cautiously optimistic, but usually always am. In the end it's just a game and I'll be an Aces and Bird fan win or lose.

I sure hope we don't have 5 or more. I don't see anybody on scholarship I would want back.

Re: Booing

Sulking is okay, being disappointed is okay, booing a team of college kids, to me, shows the class of the booer. It's like the guy who sits behind and complains about the birds the entire game, I just want to ask him why he bothers to come at all. Sad if you ask me. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapat...

Re: @ Southern Illinois

I haven't missed a streaming game in conference. My one fear of Coach K was how she would utilize the bench once we were healthy. I have no worries about that anymore.

This team is definitely trending up and is fun to watch.

Re: vs Valparaiso, 2/5, 7:00 PM, ESPN+

For me this is easy, if you want the fans to give a damn, play like you give a damn

I'm still hoping, but body language for this team is bad. It just looks like they don't care. I know, or hope, that's not true, but games like this sure make you wonder.
