Re: Next Year

Defense. I agree this school and Dan need an identity. Make it defense. You want to see the floor? You go balls to the wall on defense. Make it hell for teams to play us. IMO it plays right into making RBA a pit. I totally agree. It made Bobby Knight an ICON and Bob Donewald also did well with an e...

Re: Barry Hinson out at SIU

Barry Hinson had some of the most hilarious post game press conferences ever. I really liked and respected him. The MVC has always been known as a coach's conference and I think the Valley will miss him. However, coaching is a tough and sometimes unfair business. I wish Barry good luck in his future.

Re: Copeland, Hein out 2019

Rick Majerus was a raging asshole behind the scenes, and per many on here, is the key to Moser’s success. Not to mention Majerus was known for putting together some low character teams. Brought bad student/citizens Paris McCurdy and Curtis Kidd to Ball State. But Dan can’t yell at a player? Didn’t ...

Re: Copeland, Hein out 2019

..... I don't believe that every year our roster turns over just because there are a lot of transfer in college basketball. Someone needs to sit down with Dan and evaluate how he can become better and relate with players. If you just treat players as pawns on your path to your next job, it's never ...

Re: Copeland, Hein out 2019

Mistakes made in games are a byproduct of low basketball IQ. The development of which should be done by the coach(es) in practices. Games are the test. If players are failing the test, they have not been prepared enough through practices to excel and make good decisions during games. With that said...

Re: Copeland, Hein out 2019

Exactly what kind of practices is Muller running? Whatever he’s doing, if he’s constantly driving away “talent”, it doesn’t sound like it’s working (talent was in quotation marks on purpose). My guess is he's running the same style practice as Stallings . . . and I heard the same things about Stall...

Re: Kindred discusses Donewald era

Since we have been discussing the Donewald firing and other coaches we should also mention Porter Moser. Since he has taken Loyola to the final 4 last year and has now won back to back MVC conference championships, how did ISU make the same mistake again by firing Moser?

Re: Kindred discusses Donewald era

Donewald was a superb coach. He was super tough to play for but his players got better almost every game. His teams were so fundamentally sound and so fun to watch from the perspective that it wasn’t sloppy street ball. He never blew big leads. He almost never lost more than 2 games in a row. His r...

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

It is frankly onconceivable, and especally after the success of Paris Lee in his senior year, that we do not have a point guard. Randy Blair played an adequate point for us despite being an inside player at Peoria Richwoods. Richard Thomas was a freshman point guard during our NCAA game against Mic...

My favorite offensive stat of the year/night. ISU shot 70.3 from 2pt last night. 17.6 from 3. 39 percent of our shots were from 3. Why in the world are we taking so many 3's?????
Excellent question.

Re: @ Missouri St - 3 pm - ESPN3

This team has the lowest basketball IQ of all time. That is the only way we could have lost this one (and many others). They have no concept of how important clock time remaining is and situations when you should never foul. Also, I am sick of seeing passes to our bigs around their ankles.
