Re: UCF got hosed

Will be interesting to see if UCF can stay at this level. Dawkins is a senior, I think. That will be a huge loss. It would be a mistake to judge any athletic program (or coach) based upon one season however when looking at the trend of the UFC program (esp football/basketball and in general overall...

Re: Next Year

Big believer in defense. No doubt about it. But it perplexes me. Why can't a team thrive on both ends? With few exceptions the top and especially the top of the top do thrive on both ends and in between (transition). Some fans sometimes consider slow tempo teams as only being defensive oriented and...

Re: Bryce Drew Fired at Vandy

Drew certainly had a bad record year last and a horrendous record year this year. He must not have gotten along well with the AD as vandy had one of the top recruiting classe (two five star recruits and another player in the top 75) either last year or the year before so you think that would have go...

Re: MVC Post-Season

Also, it's a conference with more sports than basketball. Elgin would not be doing his job if he looked only at basketball. Yes it's important, but his job is to oversee all the sports (except football) Basketball is the only sport that makes money. It should drive 100% of Elgin’s decisions. This i...

Re: Mullins - SIU

Why fans are obsessed with bringing someone they hold precious to their home team memories back to coach and likely fail and get fired is beyond me. :text-+1: Emotions can certainly get in the way. Those memories/emotions helped some of the MVC coaches get hired and it will also give them a longer ...

Re: MVC Transfers

If Elgin can’t convince university presidents what A 10-yr old can see in plain sight then he is either so bad at his job or his role is totally worthless/useless. And if Missouri Valley Football is getting in the way of MVC conference expansion then ISU seriously needs to exit from Missouri Valley...

Nick Robinson of Kenwood/st joes and transfer to valpo is one to watch. Skill wise not all that different than Milik but like Milik a bit challenged but in a better way. Where Milik had negative leadership and preschool bbiq....the difference is that Nick is too nice and at times soft. Nick will put...

Maybe every 3 years.I think they went to Spain in 2016 No, it was 2015. I think Hawkins got into some kinda of trouble with drinking over there. I remember that because when he got into trouble in 2016 people referenced that issue from the summer before. https://goredbirds.com/news/2015/8/9/MBB_080...

Re: Coulda been Recruit

woulda, coulda, shoulda. I know it’s tough but sometimes non-p5 programs do close the deal on recruits like this; not ISU but sometimes I think the P6s struggle too. Ask Wisconsin about Nate Laszewski. His father played hoops at Wisconsin and his sister is on the women’s team yet he stiiffed lWisco...

The fact that Kennedy isn’t a first teamer is a joke.

Pure silliness.
I don’t know about the Moline high school kid but Kennedy is nowhere near the talent of the other four players. The 4 Chicago area players are all high majors

Re: CBI (2019): power 5 re-appearance

I think Muller, the players, and most fans are okay with closing the book on this season. Good for the CBI to get some p6's back in. It was cool having Texas A&M at Redbird a few years ago. I also think if Muller had intentions of playing more games, he wouldn't have let all the players go home for...

Great job MVC leadership not adding Murray State last year when in a position of strength! Now Murray and Belmont have made the OVC 2 bid league and could give it 3 units. If Murray wins, it’ll be their 3rd victory this decade. Getting shanked by the OVC. With its flagship program begging to join. ...

Re: 2019 - Antonio Reeves, 6-3, SG, Chicago Simeon

About a 95% chance that Tai Strickland transfers from Wisconsin. Rod Strickland's son that is not in a position to get much pt due to badger depth at pg. He would be a great PG in the MVC. Unfortunately will probably will see him end up in the AAC. Who knows...get out there ISU and try to snag him!
