Re: Mr. BUFFALOMEAT

They should sell Buffalomeat jersey's on the concourse this year. I bet it would be out best seller, even over our star players...not saying that's fair, but I think it would sell big.

https://twitter.com/Redbird_MBB/status/1009453605668212736 I really appreciate this update video and it allows us to see a little behind the scenes. Obviously, they didn't want to show too much because the video could be found by another squad and used as extra film. A few positives that I saw in t...

Re: crickets......

I'm filing it under the No News is Good News category. They are doing summer camps with kids right now. Other than that it's all quiet on the western front. My friend's kid is in one of those camps and even he barely provides any info. The most I got was "Bruniga is kinda funny" and "Milik comes an...

Another rule change: guys can play in up to 4 games and still redshirt.
I kinda like that potential rule.

Re: WOAH!

From the limited info available, I don’t see him head-and-shoulders over anyone we currently have (out of Kolbe, Brodnax, Hatfield, or Smith). I have all the confidence possible that Coach Beathard will correctly evaluate the talent and make the right decision. In Beathard I trust. I agree with you...

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

Hopefully the RBA lower bowl re-do will add not only more seats, but have them closer to the floor like those other arenas. As for Alcohol, they serve it at Bradley games and it doesn't seem to be a problem. A little beer buzz can create more atmosphere, but yeah, maybe there needs to be a few sober...

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

I wonder how many more students would come if they had better seating offered to them? I'm not sure attendance would increase that much. The students that care about basketball are already coming imo. Personally, I'd love to sit in those seats in that little section right above the band, but that's ...

Re: Yarbrough

I was issued a ticket for the “Improper display of a tinted license plate cover” in Normal, headed to class at Heartland. $75 fine I think. I purchased said license plate cover at the Auto Zone in Bloomington. Could have done a compliance ticket and just told me to remove it. In fact I offered to r...

Re: Yarbrough

I've never been in a city where cops so diligently sit and wait for speeders. 30 mph is criminally slow on streets like Vernon and College Ave. When I'm back in the area, I watch the speedometer more than the road ahead. I must have racked up 5 or 6 tickets while at ISU. None since. Sent from my SM...

Re: Turf Updates

I don't know if we suffered more injuries when compared to other teams, but the softer the better. I hope we don't lose some kind of home field advantage by having had such awful turf before. It might have been difficult for visiting teams to get used to it. But you can't stand in the way of progres...

I didn't know there was a reason for the red box. I don't remember any kind of box before, unless it was some thin white line. My memory though, not so good.

Two scholarships open for next season (if you look at Matrix only one but he hasn't taken off Romine yet). One might go to Chastain next season. The other I assume is for Payton :) If not Payton I would guess one of those scholarships goes to a 6'9"+ guy. If Payton or somebody good decides to come ...

The naming rights to the building were sold. There will be an announcement Monday at 10 a.m. to introduce the building's new name. I was excited that it might be moving out of St. Louis.
