Re: MVC Post-Season

Muller is not getting anywhere close to same level kids as Murray St. and Belmont. For his sake, he better hope they don't join the Valley. That Williams kid on Murray St. is REALLY good. Freshman. He would be the best player on ISU right now. Completely under control. Really good basketball instin...

I have nothing bad to say about Brendan but I hope he does go with him. Our staff needs some turnover and some experience brought in.
That's exactly how I feel. We can't keep the coaching team in tact after what happened this year. Doing so is the very definition of insanity.

Re: Spring Practice is Here, Spack Comments

It looks like Trey Geogie is back to being listed as OL. I guess that means he didn't work out on the Dline, or we have more needs on the offensive side. Hopefully it's because we have a lot more up and coming defensive tackles. Oh well, can't blame Brock for switching people around. Some times thos...

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: Italy in August

I like it. Didn’t Bradley go on one this past summer? Just don’t get kicked out of a game like Greggggggg did. Yes they did. I think they played a few games in England and the Netherlands.

Re: What Style of Game do you want to see?

How about adding more than just the 3 point line?. There could several further out lines with higher points. So if you're down by seven with 2 seconds to go you can try a half court shot for the win. If down by 20, you might need to hit a full court shot. Then the coach can be proud of our team for ...

This may not be what you mean, but I have suggestions for fan experience 1. The Lloyd Phillips style of 9 1/2 seconds to the center court line 2. Throwing a bucket of confetti into the crowd, occasionally subbing in real water 3. Ignore the shot clock 4. beating your chest after dunks when behind 2...

Don't shoot the messenger but I just received this message: Josh Jefferson might also be out. I talked to his mom on Friday night and she was sharing the same information. It was mostly about the intimidation tactics of Muller. If they make a mistake they are out. Do with it what you will I'm start...

Re: Copeland, Hein out 2019

I'm pretty sure Fisher will be a really good defender. The coach said he can defend the post way better than Phil, but doesn't have those quick offensive moves that Phil has. He said his shot is pretty good too, but I don't he'll average 10 points a game for us. I just hope he can raise the intensit...

Re: Copeland, Hein out 2019

Copeland probably is scared of having to face Keith Fisher after he plays bad. Hein, I can see why he wouldn't want to return. Best of luck to them both. If true, that of course opens up things even more for next year. Sad thing, I don't see a lot of recruiting buzz. It would be nice to see three of...

Re: Muller / Hinson / Wardle - A comparison.

That is a pretty good look at the sad situation of ISU basketball. Muller should be feeling the heat, but won’t at all. Hinson and Wardle took over programs at their worst and made them competitive. Dan took over a program that was in good shape and has it stuck in mediocrity heading south. Nothing...

Re: A Slow, Painful Death

It would be interesting to get a few sentence answer, from everyone here, on what the deal was with ISU this season. I believe this was (not everyone but from a collective perspective) an emotionally immature team. Couldn't handle adversity. Bred a lack of confidence. Talent not the issue. Ultimate...

Phil says the cupboard is full, and ISU will be fine next year.

Full of what?
I was thinking the same thing. It's probably full of re-fried beans and all the other stuff nobody wants to eat.
