Re: 2018-19 MVC Predictions:

I question the person who made the T25's credibility. Later in the comments on the tweet someone said, "No UCONN?" And she responded, "UCONN is not a Mid Major, no team in there league is." The American is not a HM conference. American closer to a high-major than a mid-major. UConn has more nationa...

Re: Never too early... 18-19 Non-conf schedule

This is great. We have to actually win the games. At least 3 or 4 of them. But at least Muller is giving us a shot. Jankovich never did.

Re: Milik

Milik is not point guard.....but he is the person on the team that you want to have with the ball the vast majority of the time. Call it what it is...but he can create for himself and others. He isn't someone who plays well off the ball. He should have the ball in his hands most of the game and he ...

More from a good Grape Vine... right now it is planned that Malik will be our point guard.

Re: Abdou Ndiaye COMMITTED to ISU

On campus and enrolled does not mean eligible to play. Sounds like carefully selected words. My expectations from that would be that he will be a student this year and then a basketball player next year. Just reading between the lines.

You guys are going to like Jefferson's game once he gets acclimated to this level. Just like Will, it'll take some time, but once it clicks he'll be a good one.
He reminds me of a taller version of Kyle Cartmill

Re: Muller's Summer Press Conference

So who are the 13 scholly players? 1- Milik 2- Fayne 3- Boogie 4-Keyshawn 5-Copeland 6-Jefferson 7-Elijah 8-Taylor 9-Rey 10-Abdou 11-Boyd 12- Fisher 13-Hillsman. WO:Chastain WO:Gassman WO: Hein.

Re: Muller Math

Once people really feel like they have this type of equity in the program is when it can start to take off and the brand c...

Re: Bulletin board material

One team one goal is the only way to beat Loyola. Comparing returning players points scored and rebounds is exactly what Loyola wants our players to think and care about. ISU would probably be better this year if Fayne points dipped and Evans points dipped and Copeland, Tinsley and Clarance were all...

Too bad Illinois State doesn’t have any good players coming in. Hey RedbirdSoxFan (I do love that you like the Sox - I do too).....but do you remember when Jordan and Pippen outscored Isaiah and Dumars for like 4 years in a row in the late 80s/early 90s? It’s kinda like that. Team > Individuals. On...

Re: Bulletin board material

And they are gone now. If only they didn't have anybody to replace them . . . but, they do. Williamson will do much more this year with his 45% from 3. They've added a juco guard who averaged 17.9/game, shooting 40% from 3 and 84% from the line. And they added a 3+ star post to compete with Krutwig...

Re: Bulletin board material

Per usual, we look good on paper. Recent history suggests that when we play on hardwood instead of paper, we lose on Sunday. There’s always surprises, upside and downside, relative to preseason prognostications. Time will tell. But I’m pretty optimistic at this point. Love what Dan has done to resh...

I’m sorry but the leader of your team can’t do this. You see a pattern of poor decisions and attitudinal/behavioral problems.
