Re: 2019 - Chris Payton, 6-7/205, SF, Bloomington, IL

Perhaps he is thinking he does not want to be so close to home. It happens. Being the hometown school is not always an advantage. And it's possible Payton was hearing that he would get P5 interest but it has not happened yet.

Re: Hancock Southwest Entrance

The "safer" thing kind of reminds me when the Peoria Civic Center got all new seating a couple of years ago because of a special state grant because the PCC is a fallout / emergency shelter location and in the event of such a catastrophe the citizens would need more comfortable accomodations. More p...

Re: SENIOR Night

Looks like the Girl's state tourney still gets in the way of us finishing the regular season with a home game.

Re: Birds Picked 5th in Preseason Poll

I think NDSU's venue size and market size will always hold them back from moving up.

They are certainly a P5 the way they play Actually better than many P5's. But being good enough is not what's important

Re: Non-Con Schedule

1. The NCAA men's basketball tournament selection process is rigged. No doubt about it.

2. I am looking forward to this home noncon slate. The best in years.

3. Go you Redbirds :)

Re: SIU athletics $26 million in the hole

Students overall are less and less interested in athletics every year. Not just an ISU thing. The great thing for ISU athletics about consistently solid, dependable enrollment numbers are those student fees going to support our teams. This is where many schools are getting killed, especially the in ...

Re: SIU athletics $26 million in the hole

Our enrollment is up about 1k. We have had increases each year in the last 6 years, except last year when it was down slightly. Our enrollment has been rock solid for 30 plus years.

Re: Mark Adams going to war for Mid Majors

Several good ideas on making the tourney selection process fair and equitable.

But of course, the P5 does not want this. So ideas like these have no chance.

The P5's does not want the tourney to be about having the best, most deserving teams there.
