  1. Notre Dame shot 47% from the free throw line.
  2. Changes in College Ball

    That's where I am. As this gets closer and closer to the NBA, I will begin to lose interest. Soon we'll be playing the William Tell overture, or whatever, as our team brings the ball down the court.
  3. Shaka gone?

    What about Brad Stevens? See this link: http://www.burntorangenation.com/2015/4/1/8325453/stevens-in-talks-to-become-next-texas-basketball-coach
  4. Lancona is gone

    Amen. I kept hoping one of his threes would go in, and they never did. He seemed to avoid the interior game, waiting for his threes to start falling. I always hoped he would be another Chris Sloan.
  5. Around college basketball

    Temple has two transfers who were playing in only their second game since becoming eligible. One of them had 17 points last night. That may explain some of their earlier losses and why they were playing better against Kansas.
  6. Joe Strauss tweets

    Didn't he also tweet that UMKC has yet to get a quality win? Lighten up. I have no problem with his tweets.
  7. That should be 3:30 today, Friday
  8. OT: Midtown Development

    Maybe some got more than others, I don't know about that. I do know that my brother-in-law was satisfied with the support SLU offered and he was in no way connected to "legally savvy" parents or relatives.
  9. OT: Midtown Development

    I won't argue that it was abrupt. However, SLU did provide a good bit of financial assistance to the students affected to attend another school.
  10. OT: Midtown Development

    That's not true. They provided assistance to students with their transfer. I don't know all the details, but they paid at least a good part of the tuition at another school. My brother-in-law was in IT when they closed it.
  11. OT: Midtown Development

    Sorry, IT = Institute of Technology, in those days. We didn't take any classes that required a computer back then, just a slide rule. We didn't even have calculators. Things have changed a little.
  12. OT: Midtown Development

    You left out the most important detail about this building. I spent 4 years of my life in there as an engineering student at SLU. This was IT. It was off the main campus, but it was across from Garavelli's. There was many a card game in the lobby behind those two big windows. The dean's office was on the second floor on the right. There was another building just west of this one which was connected and which housed many of the labs. It was set back from the street, as I remember.
  13. Each of my season ticket packets had only 1 hot dog coupon along with 2 drink and 2 popcorn coupons. So are you saying that the dates on the hot dog coupons changed from packet to packet or do some packets have 2 hot dog coupons with different dates?
  14. I guess I lucked out. I did not see the expiration date and assumed they were the same as the drink and popcorn coupons. I used three hot dog coupons for my grandchildren on Saturday, and they were accepted.
  15. Ranking

    UMass lost on the road, not at home.
