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

I put Chris Payton in the same category as Justin Dentmon, Nic Moore, and Reggie Lynch; Use Illinois State until something better comes along. JMO Chris didn't sign an LOI. Those guys did. HUGE difference IMO. :text-+1: Since you guys don’t want to let this go, I guess we will just keep it going. I...

Re: Redbird Arena/Hancock Stadium bag policy

This is an opportunity for ISU to ease the transition with this policy update. Get several thousand clear plastic tote bags with ISU's logo on it, and send them out with season tickets. Whatever you have left, give them to people who come to the games/box office to get their tickets. Use it as a pr...

Re: Elijah Clarance-Swedish National Team

How would you compare his composition over there to what he will see in the MVC? Do you mean competition? Obviously D1 college basketball with 18-22 year olds is a better competition than a bunch of 19 year olds. Euro ball is just very different, and MUCH more physical. Sweden plays a lot of weave ...

Re: Elijah Clarance-Swedish National Team

There is a lot of Kool-Aid being drank here in my opinion. I've watched both games so far and while Elijah has had some great highlight moments, I still find myself pretty frustrated watching his game. The positives are he is lightning fast, looks good going to the hoop for the most part and is ver...

After him backing out of a verbal commitment to Illinois State and now visiting and taking offers from Valparaiso & Southern Illinois, the scumbag can go to Minnesota for all I care.

Re: Redbird Arena/Hancock Stadium bag policy

Took the grandkids to six-flags last week. They checked my wife’s purse & bag. Most events do this now. By limiting the bags to clear only and small purses, it limits the time waiting in line while they go through all the purses & bags. Diapers & baby bottles can be put in gallon size freezer bags.

Not happy about the diaper bag. We wanted to start out son early next season. Guess we'll squeeze a diaper in her clutch and a bottle into my coat :D
You can put the diapers in a clear ziplock bag.

I bought both publications today and we are getting some love. Athlon has us as #14 nationally and Street and Smith has us at #23 (they show us as an at large pick for FCS playoffs). Once again the conference will be very very tough. Guess who is #1 pick in the country?

Tacko fall gone after this season. Won't be s great return game.
We lose four starters, maybe their fans are saying same thing about Redbirds.

Re: 2018-19 MVC Predictions:

I could see Vslpo in 4th place next year. IMO they will be competitive in their home gym and should pick off some road wins against lower division Valley teams. Don’t know what to think of Bradley because they lost a really good player in Thomas. I predict that Valparaiso will beat Loyola at least ...

Re: Never too early... 18-19 Non-conf schedule

So we still have no true road games that we know of? The Cayman field and home slate are excellent but if there's 2-3 games left to schedule they gotta be on the road, no? And hopefully against someone worthy. I know DM wants a H/H but it's late June---take a buy game if need be. Hell, take two. If...

Re: Keith Fisher, Transfer San Jose State

Would they really grant that extra year already? I always thought it was done after the fifth year. And I believe Dan said as much, that it's not time to seek an extra year yet. I believe they have to wait until he is at or near the end of his eligibility. What a stupid system the NCAA has set up w...

That Nevada vs Loyola match up looks interesting and worth an uber ride to check out. .
I will take Nevada and the points.
