Re: Signing day

Spring signing period is always slower and doesn't have the fanfare of the first day. We didn't know about MY transferring until May for instance. There's quite a buzz around many of the Valley teams' offseason pickups and recruits, but the only news I've heard from our program is about an online a...

Re: Elgin on MVC Scheduling

3 against peer high level mid-majors or low level power 5. Teams that could potentially be tournament teams. Need 3 games against Belmont's, Lipsombs, Furman, BYU, Nevada, SDSU, Penn State, Missouri, Georgia, Vandy, etc.... You'd think the high major MM conferences would work together. If they did,...

Re: Elgin on MVC Scheduling

Those remarks reek of the things currrently holding the Valley and ISU back from national relevance. These things include, but are certainly not limited to, ad campaigns like "your hometown team," Casey's general store advertising, Bob Morris, and our conference getting leapfrogged by peers while El...

Re: Muller losing it??

Interesting tweet, but I'd rather wake up to a tweet welcoming a 4-star recruit or something remotely optimistic about our basketball program.

I miss being good. [emoji17]

Re: BU disgraces itself, telling longtime PJS beat writer 'You don't promote the Bradley brand'

With BU being the only ILLINOIS school in the NCAA....the news gazette suggested the teams that the illini faithful should be rooting for. I read through it...and maybe the list can be evaluated in a different manner...but the last team the beat writer suggested to root for....was po' ol' BU, espec...

Re: BU disgraces itself, telling longtime PJS beat writer 'You don't promote the Bradley brand'

I had a back-and-forth with another RBF poster a few months ago. We disagreed that Wardle was Gregg's second coming. I told him to wait until they had a winning season, and then we'd see his true character on display. This article IS Brian Wardle, sir. Petty and arrogant. Look familiar? Sent from my...

Re: Worst Performace Ever?

No way.

The 30 point championship blowout loss to Drake awhile back was WAY worse. We'd have secured an at-large with a modestly respectable performance. Expectations were higher for that game too.

Re: vs Drake (in St. Louis), 3/8, 6:00 PM, MVC-TV [FSMW/NBCSC]

Leave it to our "star" to blow my under bet with a flashy dunk at the end followed by a hulked up stare down after. A microcosm of the entire season.

Good riddance, 2018-19 Illinois State basketball.

Nic Moore gets that honor. He commanded the floor so well towards the end of that season, especially during the NIT run at the end.

I'm sitting here behind the bench speechless and that's rare. Has there been any urgency from the coaching staff? Yes and no. In my opinion not when it's needed. In the halftime interview on TV, Dan applauded the way we played in the first half. [emoji849] Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

6 seconds on a short inbounds before half after a timeout, and we come up with an inbound pass to Fayne on the top of the key?

Huh?

Re: vs. Missouri State 2/27 6pm (FSN Midwest, ESPN+)

I still don't understand Key's massive regression... His lateral movements have never been the same after his numerous injuries. He has a hard time sliding to maintain defensive position on opposing guards, and this also seems to contribute to his inability to create separation from his defender on...

Dad and I will be making our 15th consecutive trip to Vegas for the tournament. We usually stay at the Plaza or the Golden Nugget.

Any other Redbirds heading downtown?
