  1. OT: Tatum cashes in

    Great game for Barnes but his numbers last year were comparable to Zeke Moore's playing for a worse team. And he would have struggled to get time with the guards we now have. He's playing at the right level. I thought Barnes was going to be MVC all-conference player coming out of high school. He's right on schedule.

    SI is looking at Henriquez's production in a similar rated conference and projects him as a similar scorer in the A10. They are not buying into Jordan Goodwin as a double figure scorer and an assist guy right away. And they don't think French will be a major contributor. So if those are your assumptions, then 8th place is a reasonable prediction. Very skeptical assumptions, though.
  3. Recruiting - 2018 class

    You don't need Stu to tell you that. If a kid you've been recruiting for months hasn't scheduled an official visit by early October, he's not interested.
  4. Fifteen years ago the Internet as we know it didn't exist. Kids will be doing even stupider things 15 years from now because they will have the technology to do so. At this pace, we may reach Idiocracy in our lifetime.
  5. The girls committed a crime according to the Missouri law (making a false rape accusation), the one boy did not (sharing the video on social media). If we're talking about enforcing the law, the girls should be expelled before the boys. Give them all community service and call it a day. This case has been a waste of everyone's time.
  6. Because violating the school code of conduct doesn't normally lead to expulsion. The young women made a false rape accusation and one of they young men shared the video privately on a social media platform. This is yet another example of young people acting stupidly but not doing any long term harm. At some point the adults in charge of dealing with young people have to use common sense.
  7. Even if the sharing of the video was nonconsensual it's not against the law in Missouri. In states that do have so-called "revenge porn" laws, it's a misdemeanor and treated as a form of harassment. http://criminal.findlaw.com/criminal-charges/revenge-porn-laws-by-state.html
  8. If the police doesn't file charges and the conduct board pulls the kangaroo court stuff again, SLU will get sued this time around. The kids have a real lawyer.
  9. Recruiting - 2019

    Shooting guard to replace Henriquez, small forward to replace Bess and a point guard to learn from Goodwin/Bishop. I don't see any shooting guards leaning our way in 2019 who are as talented as Henriquez so hopefully we're able to pick up an impact transfer in the spring instead. There's a talented kid from Virginia Beach named Michael Christmas who has already visited campus. He will be a priority recruit. And everyone already knows about Yuri Collins. There's isn't any going to be much time available at the point right away. A local kid who projects as a mid-major+ recruit may be our best option.

    When Illinois is really good, they get a lot of media exposure in St. Louis. And they don't have the racial baggage that Boone County does. The last time Illinois was really good and their coach was a good recruiter, St. Louis high school talent was weak. Now St. Louis area talent is strong and Chicago area talent over the next few years is weak. We're in uncharted territory here.

    Illinois has a good tactical coach and has pulled in back to back Mr. Basketballs. I'm more concerned about Underwood in the regional recruiting scene than anybody else, in the long term.
  12. OT: Tatum cashes in

    If Ford was the coach 2 years ago, we still were not getting Tatum. We didn't have a talent on the team to make his one year in college in worthwhile. Unlike Michael Porter, he didn't have a top 25 kid brother who could have made us a power in the A10. But let's say we did get him. It would have been like Davidson last year -- gaudy numbers for Peyton Aldridge but the team was only above average. And that's assuming Coach Ford would have been able to bring in a transfer that was as talented as Jack Gibbs. Jayson Tatum is a great talent but unlike Larry Hughes he lacks the playmaking skills to make the players around him better.

    Those of us who have seen this happen to other programs could clearly see the rumor was unfounded. Tigerboard diehards trolled us and Mizzou media shills amplified their trolling. Some of our insecure fans gave this trolling credence. We have insecure fans for a reason. We're not used to getting our way. Next time Mizzou shills troll us our folks will be better equipped to handle it.

    Technically that's true, but as far as getting kids in for official visits, that's over until the spring. Talen Horton-Tucker, for example ,has better offers from schools that still have open scholarships. He won't be making an official visit here. If Jared Rhoden was coming, he would have committed already. Instead he's taking official visits to P5 schools that have recently offered. We've never been in a better position to sign a stud transfer in the spring than we are now. We're going to be one of the top mid-major programs in the country going into next season and we'll have plenty of time to offer to an experienced player once Henriquez, Bess and Foreman graduate.

    Sounds like a plan. I have one suggestion. Close this thread until signing day but keep it open through the high school season. We need a place to post game accounts of our recruits.
