Re: Antonio Reeves to ISU

If Reeves can defend he will play a lot as a Frosh. He will instantly be one of the best shooters on the team. And he’s big enough to score around the rim. Really quick release and soft touch 8 feet in. Gotta get in the weight room and work on lateral quickness. He reminds me of Tyler Brown. Maybe n...

Re: Ricky Torres

He looks good in videos (they all do though).

A true point guard no doubt.

I REALLY would like to know how this went down. A call from Marshall? Belcher? Back story has to be interesting.

Re: Antonio Reeves to ISU

: Great pickup. Going to be an interesting pg battle. Good week for Muller. Going to be interesting what position we go after with the last two scholarships.

Get back on D. Don’t turn it over. Get rebounds and blocks.

We don’t need another Yarbrough. We need team-first, high character do your job better than everyone guys.

I hope he turns out to be better than #10
Iowa guy and SIU guy turns out to be worse

Re: Offered: Kolton Mitchell, 6’4” PG

One of the final 3 scholarships will be used on one of these two freshmen pgs. Not sure on the other two. I'd guess a sit-out transfer and then best available (juco or frosh). Maybe even 2 sit out guys. :pray: please not 2 sit out guys. Take both of these PGs. We've been long on sit out guys and sh...

Re: Jefferson Transferring

I'm almost positive that the two most important things that win Valley Tournament championships are: 1) Strong consistent guard play, effort and depth 2) Strong team defense If you look at the past league champs.....Bradley, Loyola, Wichita, UNI, Indy St., SIU teams in mid-2000s......all v strong te...

Can anyone comment on whether Muller is as passionate about Redbird Hoops now vs. when he got to Normal 7+ years ago? There was clearly a fire burning in his belly when he got here....talking about scheduling for at-large bids.....competing with Wichita for league titles. I don't hear any of that no...

We have 3 scholarships available and signing day has already come and gone and there is nothing going on here? Isn’t that a concern for people?

I’m pretty sure Missouri St doesn’t have a $10mm/year basketball budget. Wichita’s is like $7mm and pretty sur...

The inability for Muller and his staff to size up players' inability to perform at a high level before they offer scholarships has become a huge problem. They either aren't evaluating these kids correctly or are super arrogant about their own perceived ability to develop them on an exceptionally rap...

If he were 6-4 instead of 6-1 he would be at Michigan St instead of Loyola. Trivia time! Who was the player of the year in the Big Ten and how tall is he? Answer: https://msuspartans.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=8802 Comparing a 6-1 point guard in his 3rd year of college to a 6-1 high school 2-guard? Ok.

This is not a chicken/egg thing. In order for you to expect good crowds you actually have to consistently win. Not the other way around. Get rid of football. Put that money into men's basketball. In a few years ISU would become the next Wichita and Redbird Arena would be full. Men's basketball would...

Also, it's a conference with more sports than basketball. Elgin would not be doing his job if he looked only at basketball. Yes it's important, but his job is to oversee all the sports (except football)

If Elgin can’t convince university presidents what A 10-yr old can see in plain sight then he is either so bad at his job or his role is totally worthless/useless.
