Re: Milik Getting Some Pub

MY reminds me of Zack Lofton. Attitude problems. Head strong. Willful. Overly emotional. Butting heads with coaches. Out of control at times. Talented. DM tries to get them to buy in and make them better players and young men. They huff and puff and pout. They bolt. Then, after they have transferred...

Re: Redbirds @ Salukis 1-13-18 5pm

One recurring theme has been the high rate of turnovers. Playing hard on defense has been a battle all year. Put those two together and it adds up for tough times on he hardwood. A recent article in the Vidette reported DM saying that he is frustrated because bad passes are continually thrown after ...

Re: Sycamores @ Redbirds 12-31-17

On the post game show DM gave shout outs to MH, MW and TB along with the regulars. MH hustles every play and had a solid game. DM said MW played defense so great today -- probably his best game -- that it reminded him of TW. By the way, it was nice to see Paris, Tony and Javaka in the stands. Gutty ...

Re: Sycamores @ Redbirds 12-31-17

We will be braving the cold to attend the game as well. Anticipating Christian and/or David playing. Hope to see some intense D and effective offense.

Re: Expansion Thoughts?

Endowments are usually spoken for and most-often given to colleges of universities for operating budgets in perpetuity. Larger universities do obtain endowments for sports but it is infrequent in smaller universities. For the MVC -- boosters and donors are what keeps athletic departments robust. Koc...

Re: Expansion Thoughts?

GCU is a conundrum of marketing and online profit -- I know people that live down there and they all say GCU is smoke and mirrors with money. Campus is in bad part of town but they have big $ and building top-notch sports complexes to try and drum up interest among recruits. Their bread and butter i...

Re: Evansville Thread

Congrats to the Birds on nice road win!

We need another player to step up besides the core 3. MW struggled today.

Hope we get some injury news concerning Big D and even how Christian is coming along -- being in street clothes is not a good sign after dressing last game.

Re: Evansville Thread

Hope against hope -- since we have all been anticipating the return of our big men -- but if David or Christian return we will have the size needed to dominate this game. If not, at least our reserves that have been converted to advanced minutemen are seasoned and will continue to contribute in posi...

Re: Birds in the Media

Thanks for posting. MY is a special talent. He is smooth in his game and his skill set is above most when he's on the court. It sounds like he's strong-willed and has a tendency to let his emotions get the best of him. He is not a pouter or selfish player in the likes of Zack Lofton and seems to hav...

Re: Insight into MULLER

Nice article really. It shows DM is more interested in the process and motivation and hustle than talent and wins. Now put all those things together and you have a team that can reach their potential. Last year's team pulled out many close victories because of this. They didn't sulk and not play "al...

Re: Starters/rotation when healthy

We haven't seen much from EC to crown him starter let alone have much of an idea of what he will offer. From the videos we saw he is legit but he is only a freshman and we have not seem him compete against college competition. He is one player we are all excited to see based on his skill set but to ...

Re: vs Tulsa - 12/2/17 - 3 pm - NBC Sports Chicago Plus

As posted on the other thread, I did not like seeing David not on the bench with academic issues. Hope this doesn't carryover but if he is still recovering then he would have time to turn it around. Has there been an update when he will be available again or is the estimate still toward the end of D...

Re: vs Tulsa - 12/2/17 - 3 pm - NBC Sports Chicago Plus

Agree on MW. He is growing into a solid performer and leader with his D. Love his energy. His defense has always been strong but he is developing into a dependable offensive option. Just think what he will be into the next couple of years. Good win by the Birds especially being out rebounded by so m...

Re: at Nevada - 11/29/17 - 9 pm - MWN TV

I am not sure why perspectives have changed that much from the start of the season to even be more pessimistic about the team. We all knew about the injuries. We all knew Copeland was out. We all knew they would be up and down this year due to losing the big 3 from last year. Some are acting like th...

Does anyone know ECs status? Not sure if he reinjured himself or not based on previous posts. I am looking forward to seeing his skillset as he gets stronger and can contribute.

Re: Milik suspended for QU game

Just heard on the telecast replay that Pegler said Malik was late to a couple of meetings so was being held out for one game. Although not an earth-shattering violation, he still needs to get his act together and follow the basic rules.
