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. Though Muller didn't speak directly to it, I believe Gassman will lose his and Chastain will stay off sc...

Re: Muller Math

https://twitter.com/pg_benson/status/997137099219496961?s=21 Yet another example of the seemingly strong relationships Muller is building. Also a credit to Hein and his family. 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...

Re: Bulletin board material

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...

Re: Yarbrough

Taken from Pantagraph article.... "Yarbrough pursued the woman and, after his phone was recovered, “pushed (the woman) in the back as she was walking down the stairs, thereby endangering her safety,” said the officer’s report." Ok, but just where does it say he "pushed her down the stairs"?????? Yo...

Re: Yarbrough

I’m sorry but the leader of your team can’t do this. You see a pattern of poor decisions and attitudinal/behavioral problems. We can’t beat Loyola when our best player is fighting girlfriends over cell phones and pushing people down stairs. If you’re going to suspend him then the at-large shot is p...

Re: ** VERBAL ** 2018 - Abdou Ndiaye, 6-9/200, PF The Nation Christian Academy

Most excited about the Birds since Hawk and MM came to town. We have a chance to be really good next year! Guard depth should be much stronger than the Hawk/MAC teams. And athleticism in front court might be better too. Great succession planning as well. A couple months ago I was worried roster-wis...

Re: Jaycee Hillsman Commits

On paper it looks great that Muller is upgrading the roster on the perimeter. Guards win this league and he is now going to be 5 or 6 deep next year. We lose a ton of size next year. We will have Rey and Taylor but not much else. Gotta land some of these other kids.l to replace Milik, Phil and Will....

Re: Dixon Not Coming To ISU

On my first date with Mrs. Timmy Moses literally fell into my lap at the old Stadium. He got up, saw me covered in his sweat and said "sorry man". There is NO ONE in NBA history...perhaps even mankind...who sweat more buckets than Moses Malone. There is no question that Mrs. Timmy's better half was...

Re: Prentiss Nixon Visit

out of all the mentions this winter/spring this is the last guy i want. cant shoot. Averaged 16 points a game and a 1+ steals a game along with shooting over 80% from the line? This would be an awesome get to replace what we are losing after this next year. Nixon would essentially replace Keyshawn....
