So UNI gets an NIT bid and we don't?

So MVC gets 2 teams into NCAA tourney and yet only 1 to NIT and it goes to UNI (who we beat twice and who we at least split with Missouri State and whom UNI lost 3 times to). Neitherr UNI nor ISU beat Drake. Granted UNI SOS better but I don't think they lit anyone up. Surprised Horizon league got 2 ...

Re: What Style of Game do you want to see?

Mandatory 3 passes on each Offensive posession unless on a fastbreak. Having a PG who actually can drive the lane Having at least one guy in the paint when shots are fired up to give us a chance at O rebounds Using the Jackie Carmichael kick move at least once a game to have opponents always have th...

Great W for the Birds - we beat their #3 and they played 7 of 9 regular starters so no gimme game at all.

Nice job Birds

Re: A Slow, Painful Death

No I said he doesn't have to win it (read)- rather I said he has to get to the Championship game - and if he can't do that then yes he should be canned - with thie number of players returning - with the weak butt conference we have - and yes if getting to the Championship game is such a stretch then...

This is the show me DM that you can coach a team with a bunch of soft players tourney. Anything less of getting to the Championship game warrants real change exploration. He should win EU game. He should also win the DU game. Winning four games if four days is near impossible so I give him a pass on...

Re: Coaching Candidates

ND State and SD State?

St Louis University?

I still say go balls to the wall and go FBS in football by bringing in Ball State, Northern Illinois, Ark State, WKU, Tulsa and Memphis and getting waivers for Mo State, ILState, UNI and SIU. Drake, Indy State can stay in MVC FBS

Re: Coaching Candidates

Dayton was and is a better job than ISU. It led him to Georgia Tech (which was a tough gig to step into with where it was left when he came in). USF a good job but many would say ISU better opportunity. He went to Hersey HS and his wife would love to get back closer to home.

Murray State Series

Birds take 2 of 3 on road - 7-3 so far - not too shabby a start. But the big boys are next - series at Vandy (#1 in latest poll)

Re: at Southern Illinois, 3/2, 1:00 PM, CBSSN

Even the announcers were dumbfounded that we completely got away from the Offense we had going for first 6 minutes of 2nd half - one of them said he wondered what were we thinking. If they can see it - it should be apparent how we need a change at the top. It's time - DM tried - he's a slightly bett...

Big W for Loyola

We win @SIU then we're mostly likely the #6 but could still get the #5

We lose then we have to have UNI lose @Indy State to get the #6

So let's just win

Re: Coaching Candidates

He lost the team which are his own recruits. Granted he has a bunch of soft guys. But he recruited them. Another year no tourney. We really think DM can win the big one? I don't anymore.

Re: @ Indiana St, Wed, 6 pm, ESPN+

Malik is prepping himself for the Bulgarian League - another 7 TOs - leading the Valley I think. Muller and the folded arms offense - soft on the sideline and no fire. Another disappointment. Hopefully DM can tweet away the excuse for tonite

Re: Wow!!

Nice start for the Birds - a 3 game road sweep vs Belmont (granted Belmont picked 7th out of 10 in the conference pre-season) but impressive start for Coach Holm. Next up a 4 game road trip to Central Arkansas (who just lost 2 of 3 at home to Bradley).
Keep it going Birds
