Re: UNI @ ISU 2/17

I agree with others that Elijah needs to be able to play without worrying he is going to get pulled quckly. Yes! Most definitely. Constantly looking over your shoulder during dead balls for your sub kills basketball IQ and instinct. However, I think Dan has done a better job the latter part of the ...

Re: UNI @ ISU 2/17

I'm starting to think that our offense works better when Yarborough plays out of the post, especially against slower teams like UNI. Puts him in range and gives our shooters space to work.

Thoughts?

Del Yarborough's teammates are on campus. It's Retro Night. We're at Redbird and Milik and the boys are not losing.

Re: @ Bradley

Regardless of whether we do or do not promote assistant coaches for purposes of future employment, we should consider the effects of how constantly changing coaches affects OUR program. It can't be good. Losing Yak to Michigan was good for them, but not for us. The same holds true for the half dozen...

Re: @ Bradley

Sounds like there's a story behind Romine's "injury" that half of us haven't been told. What exactly was his injury? What were the circumstances behind him temporarily leaving ISU? If he's healthy, why isn't he playing? Woodward and Bernstein aren't exactly pressing the issue down there at the Panta...

Re: Ole Miss

Oh, I don’t know. Based on some posts on this board we’re gonna suck next year. Won’t matter. A new coach won’t take that risk. But will the new coach have the gravitas to get the athletic department to buy their way out? Not sure if that's relevant, but I haven't heard about new hires buying out o...

Re: vs SIU 2/8

HUGE! And to think that some thought we would be competing in Bradley's Thursday Night Tourney just a month ago. Pros: Elijah Clarance. Solid defense tonight and effective on offense. Quick feet and moved lightning fast around screens. Loved his offense too, especially the steal and resulting dunk. ...

Re: Bradley- Loyola game

Great game.

The word that comes to mind when looking at Bradley last night was INTENSITY. We're better than them, but if we don't match their intensity in Carver, we'll get smoked.

Re: MVC Game 10

There's a LOT of basketball left to be played. According to KenPom, current conference SOS indicates that teams like Loyola and Bradley could be in for a rough end of the season, while teams like ISU and others have an easier route. Should be an exciting finish! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2018...

Big win!

Paul Lusk should be gone at season's end. Given their talent and experience, you've got to do better than this.

Meanwhile, Dan Muller continues to find creative ways to stay ahead of the curve. Crown him!

Re: AD monitors are idiots

Maybe during timeouts, design contests between campus fraternities and sororities. Provide them with heavily discounted tickets, let Red Alert brief them ahead of time on student seating FAQs, and we voila.... We instantly have 100 to 150 more rabid kids ready to cheer for the good guys. FWIW, I'd r...

Re: Chris Payton Decommits from Illinois State

Payton goes to every almost every game. Why would he want to go to ISU and their half empty stadium with poor support when he's getting calls from the big boys? Easy. So he can give his team, his hometown, and Illinois State University a reason. But then again, most 18 year-olds aren't mature enoug...
