Re: BU disgraces itself, telling longtime PJS beat writer 'You don't promote the Bradley brand'

It looks bad, especially the “not promoting the brand” claim, but if and this is a big if- A media person is unfairly critical, I wouldn’t give them special perks. I think of the Tribune’s Rosenbloom, who essentially trashes teams and players simply because he is a miserable person and has found tha...

Re: Muller seeks to restore 'toughness, effort'

The moment Muller decides to emphasize and prioritize “the desire to win” as a trait that his recruits must have will be the moment the program will start excelling, Dan needs to realize that you can’t motivate players as much as you think you can....but you can teach and coach-up motivated players.

Re: Out Coached and Out Smarted

Just watched Bradley humble Loyola. It was a pleasure to see a well coached team play solid defense and make the big plays. Maybe Wardle will hold a coaches workshop over the summer and Dan can attend wearing a fake mustache and learn some bench skills. Other seminars could include 1. Playing with ...

Re: Barry

I’d like to see Barry replace Doug Elgin. . Why...seems like it would be more of the same? I guess I tend to believe that the MVC is in danger of becoming the OVC, or worse, and that reversing the conferwnce’s downward spiral is going to take a visible, boisterous personality, among other things.

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

I think the likely scenario is that we win this one by 25-20, get an over-inflated head, then lose out.

Re: Senior Day against Drake 2/24

Thanks for your hard work and excellent moderating, Quinn. I think it is a thankless job. I appreciate and respect your work. Other than the double standards, rampant hypocrisy, favoritism, and hidden agendas, I am inclined to agree. You've had many negative posts over the years, but this one is ju...

If you are referring to me, Rico. I know Larry Lyons. He knows me. I have worked with him on various projects over the years. A friend? No. What you say you know presents a flawed view of these issues. You seem to want to personalize this discussion. That happens when posters struggle to make their...

Re: Muller and Lyons

Muller is not a great coach, but he’s much better than some on here think. I’m not sure where or when it will all come together for him, but I do believe he will become an excellent coach. I hope it happens while he’s in Normal.

Re: Winning on Sunday in the Lou

I imagine the year that we finally do break through and make it to the big dance, we will end up getting waxed by 40 or 50 points in the play in game in Dayton.

Re: Running Back U ... 2019 recruiting class ... MVFC, nothing to see here !!

I think Brown sees the field this year, and Nigel White is still a few years out.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Mueller to eventually become an all-conference safety (or possibly oversized DB) within a few years.

Re: BETTER

not sure this was entirely intended or not ... but clearly this class has a lot of skill players and smaller than usual.

Re: Roster changes

This has been as bad an offseason as Spack has had. It's easy to act like the fox with sour grapes....but we lost some good, talented players, including a potential star in Willie Edwards. Broadnax was also about as athletic and talented an athlete as we've had on the roster in the past 5 or 6 years...

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 b...

How many 4 year players under Muller

This is year 7 under Muller, and looking back I'm curious as to just how few players came here as freshmen and graduated having played their entire college career here. I know there's been Wills and Lee...and this year we'll have Evans. But, is that it? I'm afraid that these inconsistencies and frus...
