Re: Muller seeks to restore 'toughness, effort'

When Dan was hired I expected we would have many players that reminded me of Dan. Fundamentally sound High basketball IQ Defense focused. In the 7 years I have seen two players that remind me of that. Tony Wills and now Matt Chastain. While we can’t have nothing but those types of players, we need m...

Re: Muller / Hinson / Wardle - A comparison.

Both Wardle and Gregg Marshall tore their new teams down to the bones and built them up from scratch. It meant losing early but getting buy in and building a culture. Both Jankovich and Muller kept us competitive through all (or almost all) years but never over the hump at times when the MVC was str...

Re: BPI, KPI, NET, Pom, Sag, SOR ... WTH?

I have only one question on NET. What did it show Loyola as prior to arch madness Sunday last year. Or in other words, was this final four team going to be selected based on NET. The answer has to be out there somewhere. I even emailed Josh Tolentino about the question hoping it would spark an artic...

Re: Heat Chart 01/17

Has anyone seen NET restated for last year’s results. I would love to see where Loyola was ranked after the regular season or March Madness. If they are listed at 100+ and all .500 teams in Power 5 conferences are 50-75 then it means it has not helped anything. I have not heard anything about this a...

how does chastain not have a scholarship?
I believe if he was under scholarship he would not be able to play due to the 2 years to sit out with in conference transfers.

Re: Current rankings

If I remember correctly the history behind the play in game is interesting. When tourney went to 64 teams for first time, there were X number of conferences and Y number of at large. If I weren’t so technically challenged I could look it up. The money for getting in was very large, so several very w...

Without milik. First possession 3 pointer by Copeland. Loyola made 2 FTs Unorganized possession on our end. Could milik have made a 4 point play on first possession? Could he have stolen ball or made Custer miss a FT? Could he have helped in last possession. No, no, maybe. My wife even said “look ho...

Re: Sasha Stefanovic

Lou was back in town about 10 years ago for a reunion and he talked at the luncheon before Bradley game. No hint of animosity and I figured if he was upset about Donewald he wouldn’t have come back then.

Re: @Valpo 1/2/19 7pm

Wouldn't it be possible for Taylor be able to play in a handful of games & then they could still redshirt him? I might be wrong on this, but here goes. If he plays in less than 3 games and gets hurt, the team can request a redshirt for the player, which NCAA would most certainly accept. If he gets ...

Re: Scheduling Division 2 Teams

Well when scheduling became too hard for Illinois high school football, they got rid of conferences and went to districts.

How do you think that would go over in colleges??

Re: NET Rankings

Has anyone seen a rating of last year’s teams and how NET would have ranked the teams? To me this is easy to do and should show what differences in NET vs RPI vs At large selection vs tourney performance.
