  1. Chris May

    Remeber, Majeus suggested Stone- (which I see that someone mentioned above and I overlooked) http://host.madison.com/sports/college/basketball/women/college-women-s-basketball-lisa-stone-building-up-saint-louis/article_46ec4a45-913f-5085-be9c-208e9c3aad45.html "... Saint Louis contacted her, thanks in part to a recommendation from SLU men’s coach, the late Rick Majerus, whom she’d known since his days at Marquette. “If you’re in this profession and he liked you, I guess that was pretty good endorsement,” she said.

    Piece on the new SLU hospital. Picture of exterior certainly makes it look suburban http://www.stltoday.com/business/local/staff-opinions-front-and-center-in-new-slu-hospital-design/article_05e9dacd-6745-50a2-a54c-4d4ed6cf035f.html

There’s also the mental side to basketball that can give you an edge.”

  5. Great opportunity for SLU

    The AD really needs to take the other sports (Blues) into account when scheduling home games. My mom has both Blues and SLU season tix and she is miffed that SLU booked so many (I think she told me 5) home games on nights when the Blues had a home game scheduled. She really enjoys both sports, and has been a longtime season ticket holder for both but hates to miss games. That Blues schedule is out well early enough for SLU to avoid playing opposite of them. If you already have 18-19000 downtown at the Blues game...AND you are a struggling program (as we have been for a couple of years and will be this year) doesn't it just make sense NOT to compete AGAINST the team that always draws? I think there is crossover between the two markets (SLU and Blues). My mom just thinks that the SLU AD is just unaware of anything else going on in town at times. just some $.02

    Front row left in the mauve jacket is Chuck Jackson. Worked for years as an exec at Fox Sports Midwest, regular contributor to the Charlie Tuna show. Really good guy

  10. Frank Cusumano has a piece on the KSDK sports tonite at 10 on Travis Ford.
  11. Per Randy Karraker: "For SLU, Travis Ford is a good hire. Not a destination job. Steppingstone/rehab job. He needs to rehab, and this is a good place to do it"

  13. Coaching Candidates

    Beard didn't do anything for me from the get go. Too much jumping around and the success in Little Rock was just in one season. I'm not sure you can track a successful long-term recruiting program which included this many stops in the past 5 years: 2011–2012 South Carolina Warriors 2012–2013 McMurry 2013–2015 Angelo State 2015–2016 Arkansas–Little Rock
  14. Coaching Candidates

    I still would like to at least hear that a conversation was had with/about Sendek.
  15. Coaching Candidates

    Pat Forde's article: https://sports.yahoo.com/news/college-basketball-coaching-carousel--updates-on-cincinnati--georgia-tech--others-203644885.html "Florida Gulf Coast’s Joe Dooley has emerged as a significant candidate at Saint Louis, multiple sources told Yahoo Sports. There have been media reports that Vanderbilt’s Kevin Stallings, a St. Louis native whose teams have underachieved in recent years, is a candidate, but that remains to be seen. Former Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford is interested in getting involved, according to sources. Other potential names: Arkansas-Little Rock’s Chris Beard and six-year Michigan assistant LaVall Jordan. The problem with Jordan: Saint Louis athletic director Chris May has said his search will focus on established head coaches."
