  1. Kenpom 2017-18 rankings

    if Sports Illustrated is correct that 4 out of our 7 top minutes on the floor guys are the players returning and 2 out if the top 3 scorers are returning players, their 8th place prediction is probably correct.
  2. 2017-2018 Season Prediction thread

    Jimbo i am not advocating Welmer leave only pointing out a player can transfer without having to sit out and lose a year.
  3. 2017-2018 Season Prediction thread

    i believe he could go to D2 or D3 or NAIA and play immediately.

    pepperoni, bacon and green pepper - Fine choice!
  5. OT: Tatum cashes in

    i also cant blame tatum for not being able to stand up to the coach k full court press when recruited. think about it, tatum was playing on the usa team that k was coaching and everyday for over a month, k was likely telling him how horrible slu was the great history of duke blah blah blah. also all tatum's peers on that team were likely telling him the same thing, making fun of crewsplatt, etc. peer pressure is tough. and standing up to a legend like coach k is tough. now that all said, once he signed with coach k my enthusiasm for tatum went out the window. i definitely didnt go watch him as much his last year at chaminade i would have, but still as i said in the previous post, he was still a legacy.

    legacy. dad was a billiken. gives him a semi pass especially out of college plus i blame crewsplatt it never happened. they could f up anything
  7. OT: Tatum cashes in

    exactly. everytime i see it it makes me smile. and honestly he seems so geniune yet. hopefully he keeps his feet on the ground.
  8. OT: Tatum cashes in

    nice IMO's commercial running featuring tatum. wonder what he got paid for that? Free pizza for life?
  9. game times

  10. Recruiting - 2019

    hargrove is better than illinois state. next year after a summer with the eagles his stock will rise.
  11. game times

    i was really hoping the Saturday, December 9th game would be a 1 pm start. christmas parties everywhere i have to make appearances at. looks like that game is a giveaway.

    i wouldnt even want to be in the same building with the likes of you.
  13. Vinyl Facilities aka Vinyl Land

    quit embarrassing yourself with your bridge burning. its just sad.
  14. Recruiting - 2018 class

    totally agree. let's play a good program. mi$$ouri sucks. and if not for buying Porter jr with Dad's totally overpaid salary they would not be competitive again this year. one year fluke.
  15. Practice news

    I agree with travs/glory the stupidest thing Rickma ever said was the starting thing. It matters. Anyone that ever played sports knows how important starting is to confidence. Those not starting all aspire to that level plus no one wants to "lose" your starting status. Being announced each game as a starter is the ultimate motivator. I am sure Rickma did not really believe the starter statement. It was a way to deal with reporters stupid questions and maybe pacify a player that wasn't starting.
