Re: Illinois state AP All-State Teams

The fact that Kennedy isn’t a first teamer is a joke. Pure silliness. I don’t know about the Moline high school kid but Kennedy is nowhere near the talent of the other four players. The 4 Chicago area players are all high majors Kennedy is High major talent with mid-major height. He pretty much dom...

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 instinc...

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)
What’s your point?

Re: MVC Post-Season

This will be the NCAA Tournament where everyone will be saying....”we picked Valpo over Murray St and Belmont?”

Should have lured them all and gone to 12. But nope...:everyone has their own little tiny interests and fiefdoms to protect.

Re: MVC Transfers

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.

Re: MVC Transfers

When you see good, young players leaving good private universities like Valpo.....which has a pretty solid young head coach.....you know the future for the Missouri Valley Conference is not bright. And we have one person to thank for this. Doug Elgin. Who allowed the college basketball world to move...

Re: MVC in NCAA

A 24-win Drake not making the NIT should be concerning to the MVC.

We are now at a point where an MVC team needs to basically win 26-27 games to make the NIT and probably 29 or 30 to get an at-large

Re: 2019 - Antonio Reeves, 6-3, SG, Chicago Simeon

Can he ball? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk Saw him play against Brother Rice in regional final. Think he had around 20 pts. He can score. Nice shooting touch especially around the rim. Lot of floater/tear-drop type shots. He is not afraid. Physically he needs to get stronger; but his skill l...

Re: Muller seeks to restore 'toughness, effort'

When Dan was hired I expected we would have many players that reminded me of Dan. Fundamentally sound High basketball IQ Defense focused. In the 7 years I have seen two players that remind me of that. Tony Wills and now Matt Chastain. While we can’t have nothing but those types of players, we need ...

Re: Muller seeks to restore 'toughness, effort'

Unfortunately, I think the lack of effort on the defensive end paired with shots not falling because cyclical. One caused the other all season. Shots not falling led to poor defense, giving up a bucket led to a rushed shot ("you don't get to score on me without me scoring back on you,"). I am not j...

That freshman point guard and that freshman center were waaaaaay better than the types of kids we are getting. They ...

But but but San Jose state players suck? Why would we ever want one of those scrubs to transfer to ISU?? Directed at me? I never said that. I consider Fisher, Hillsman, Boyd proven D1 commodities.

Re: Words to choke on

I think 8 years is enough of a chance to get at least 1 NCAA bid. If Muller can’t do it next year I think it’s time to turn the page. And I don’t think that means ISU necessarily takes a huge step back. Look at what Drake did with a 1st-year head coach. Without their injuries they are the best team ...
