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...

Re: ISU vs. Charleston Southern - 11/25/17 - 8:00PM - ESPN3

I'm curious. How many of you/us have actually played the game? From a team standpoint. Rec league, intramurals, etc don't count. How many of you have actually played the game? Dad was a coach. I played in high school until I realized that my combination of size, foot speed, springs, and shooting ab...

Re: 2018 Interest - based on tweets and follows

Did the Redbirds ever recruit Joey St Pierre? He's leaving utep and allegedly wants to be closer to home. Looks like we at least reached out to him and I'm guessing Mullins at UIC possibly did as well. http://www.nwherald.com/2015/06/17/high-school-boys-basketball-college-interest-in-richmond-burto...

Re: NCAA - FBI Investigation

I have to admit, I only casually looked through a couple of articles on this. Was there mention anywhere that more coaches/programs be implicated in this?

Re: NCAA - FBI Investigation

Here's the latest from the FBI probe. Apparently, there is a team in the Midwest that provides a school decorated cookie to recruits when they come visit their school. There was evidence of this cookie on the fan message board however I believe the site recently "crashed" and "lost" all of the arch...

Sounds like we will be playing more of an away game as opposed to a neutral site when we play South Carolina.

Re: 2017/2018 Preseason Vally Predictions

What the hell is everyone's infatuation with Valpo? They got beat by a horrendous team in the Opening round of the Horizon League tournament when Peters went down last year. Was thinking the same thing but I've never seen them play and haven't researched who they have coming in. They lose there top...

There might be nothing more to the story than he just liked Drake and felt most comfortable there.
