Re: NCAA corruption

http://www.wildcat.arizona.edu/article/2018/02/o-basketball-fbi Fans of college basketball should enjoy the current season while they can, because the largest upset of the NCAA tournament may come in a few years when wins are stripped and legacies are destroyed. That’s according to a report from Ya...

Kevin Stallings

Kevin Stallings is struggling this year. They are a young team but I didn't expect this. https://herosports.com/college-basketball/hot-seat-kevin-stallings-fired-pittsburgh-candidates-ahah http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/22407779/what-happened-pittsburgh-panthers-basketball-co...

We also had Dana Ford and Torrey Ward. DM has a pretty good track record for assistants.

Re: YAK went after the Michigan job, peeps...

We lost 3 coaches to B10 schools. I think you have to give credit to DM for bringing in coaches that bigger programs covet. Perhaps we should have a little more confidence in the new coaching staff. Maybe the coaches we have now will be recruited by bigger schools as well.

The fact that we played our deep bench more than most will help.
Agree, those guys are getting very valuable minutes. I just hope that when/if we get our team back for Arch Madness they aren't out of sync by not playing together for the last couple of weeks.

Re: vs SIU 2/8

Great effort last night. It's good to see our depth developing. We will need it if we plan to go anywhere at Arch Madness. Hopefully we can get healthy by then. Yikes!

Who would have thought our scoring leaders would look like this.
Clarance 15
Tinsley 14

Re: At Northern Iowa 1/24

Still think the beatdown to Indiana St and the subsequent beatdown by UNI in the first 30 mins was the best thing that could have happened to the Redbirds. They were embarrassed....humiliated....and exposed as a dinged up small group of capable 1on1 players......but not a team.....and only a group ...

Re: Gargoyles @ Redbirds 1-17-18 6 p.m.

I vote that DM wears an earpiece during the game. That way we can have some of our forum posters let him know when and who to sub in the game based on what they have seen on TV and read on message boards. With this, I think our unacceptable win problem would be solved.

Re: Top 30 All-Time Illinois College Coaches!

Up to this point Collins has not done more than Stallings did. Stallings took over a bad team and had a pretty good four year run. What, up to this point, has Collins done that makes his coaching career at Northwestern better than Stallings at ISU? For the record, I don't think either of them shoul...

Re: Top 30 All-Time Illinois College Coaches!

Stallings did great for us here but I'm not sure it as big as accomplishment as what Collins is doing for Northwestern. Stallings had a much better record here but I think NW was a bigger hill to climb. I think I would have put Donewald on the list before both though. Up to this point Collins has n...
