Re: Closing the Book on 2018-19, Looking towards 2019-20

We talked about Chastain being a "glue guy". I think if we reach our potential next year guys like Fischer, Idwou and Bruninga will join him in that role. Team defense, rebounding, moving the ball on offense etc. We finished with a sub 200 NET ranking this past year. It's a low bar to clear to be be...

Re: Jefferson Transferring

Seems like he was in Dan’s doghouse. Was it for defense? We really needed his 3 point shooting for next year.

Re: Copeland, Hein out 2019

Did he say why he was looking to transfer? Also is that against the rules for other coaches to be in contact with him?

Re: vs Evansville (in St. Louis), 3/7, 8:30 PM, MVC-TV [FSMW+/NBCSC]

I think the key for ISU winning 4 games in a row is big production out of Tinsley, Gassman and Idowu . We have to limit the minutes of Fayne, Malik and Chastain to have any chance on Sunday.

Re: vs Evansville (in St. Louis), 3/7, 8:30 PM, MVC-TV [FSMW+/NBCSC]

I embrace playing in the MVC version of the First 4, to get ISU ready for the NCAA First 4. There's some truth to this. Last year UMBC and Penn were given 16 seeds with RPI's of 150 and 151 respectively. We are currently 192 in NET ranking and unlikely to crack the top 150 with 4 straight wins. It ...

Re: 2019 Arch Madness Predictions!

In light of the loss of a starter from both Evansville and Drake (who we are already 4-0 against) is it crazy to think that our path to Sunday may be easier after losing to SIU? Had we won that game we would be playing MSU or BU on Friday and then had to play Loyola on Saturday. I would be willing t...

Re: Coaching Candidates

Money aside, does Dan deserve to be fired for having his first underperforming year? Remember he’s finished above projected standings every year. What message would be sent to potential new coaches that the expectation is zero down years are acceptable for a mid major program that hasn’t made the to...

Re: 2019 Arch Madness Seeding

It could be fun to embrace the challenge as the first Thursday team to win arch madness. The problem is we don't have any depth. We can't ride Malik and Fayne hard for 4 straight days and expect them to perform at a high level. Also worried about Chastain being able to play even 2 games back to back...

Re: vs Drake, 2/24, 1:00 PM, CBSSN [Senior Day]

I don't expect many coaches copying HCDM's first intentional foul, but I got it right away. Because I was thinking we were about to lose another game on a banked in three as before. Unless a coach had been burnt, twice in the same season, no less on a long crazy shot they probably won't try it. Now...

Illinois has a NET ranking of 77. Their record is bad because they played one of the toughest schedules in the country.

Re: Muller and Lyons

No such thing as MVC team truly being in any legitimate at large discussion under any scenario. That ship has sailed. MVC is a one bid league, just like all the other shitbag bottom feeder leagues. It’s Win on Sunday, or bust. If your referring to only this season then your missing the point. If yo...

Re: Muller and Lyons

I think people need to step back and realize how successful he has been here at ISU and that we are a mid major school. Also, keep in mind we are in first place if those 2 half court shots don't drop. People are acting like Bradley fans did calling for the head of Jim Les and look where they are now...

Tie-Breakers

Based on the standings, head to head records and the projected NET rankings. I looked at how we would match up against every team in the MVC if we split the season series and ended up in a tie. In this scenario we would lose every single head to head tiebreaker scenario due to NET ranking. This even...

Re: How many 4 year players under Muller

Outside of Evans, Paris Lee and Reggie Lynch when has a high school recruit of Muller's been a top 3 player on any Redbird team? And yet we've been top 3 in the MVC almost every year. The point is Dan finds the best talent wherever it is. Bradley has lot's of 4 year players, few of them are worth br...

Re: MVC Game 11

Random question, when was the last sub 100 RPI/NET team to win Arch Madness?

Edit- The closest I could find was Indiana State in 2010 who were in the 80's. Going back to 2003 it looks like pretty much every team has been top 50 (let alone top 100).
