  1. Well mine was not a political statement - simply an observation.
  2. That was not my point - IL St could have shown they belonged last year in the tourney but going out at home in the NIT against IL did not make their case. I agree that one game does not make a season but I can assure you that the selection committee was smiling when IL St lost in the first round of the NIT to a weak IL team.
  3. Interesting point - I guess from what you said that the Trump budget with DeVos ideas to support more of these types of schools will only make it worse.
  4. My point was that their coach whined so much about being snubbed when the team had a chance to show all the selectors that they were wrong to leave them out they ended up chocking and losing to IL at home. If you want to toot your horn you better deliver. As far as UC Davis goes - they won their conf. tourney so they got in by the rules. If you don't like the conf. tourney winner getting the auto bid then that is another matter entirely. By the way, I did say "while they (IL St) maybe should have been placed in the tourney" so I did recognize their plight somewhat. Sorry you had so much trouble understanding my post but maybe this explanation helps.
  5. While they maybe should have been placed in the tourney but they choked against IL in the NIT at home so they lost all credibility to their claim of being screwed. If you are going to ***** you better deliver to prove you deserve to be there.
  6. He had a big body as a h.s. player - he must be very strong by now. I guess I did not notice it with him in practice sweats sitting on the bench.
  7. So had Tatum come here and Crews was still fired you would say that Tatum should not have gotten big minutes this last year because he was not a Ford recruit? Ford if he is smart will play the best players he has to win regardless how they got here.
  8. I have read several posts in this thread about how great it is that Ford says he is not afraid of Missouri and there is enough talent to go around. Well talk about the ultimate coach speak. What do you expect him to say - I am scared $hitless about other coaches getting all the players I want? Every coach has confidence in their ability to recruit - if they did not they would not even be in the profession - even Crews thought he was a good recruiter if you asked him. All coaches are concerned about competition regarding recruiting even Coach K or Coach Cal. They would be crazy not to be. Like I said even Crews knew he had to recruit against top coaches but what could he do but simply try. The same is true with Ford - he would be tickled pink if all the other coaches stayed away from StL in recruiting and all the other kids he has extended offers. My point is simply don't read too much into the coach speak but keep in mind that he knows he will be given a run for his money from coaches all over the country.
  9. Well the other Ricky was an issue also now that you mention it but honestly if you have a problem a couple of times you probably have had problems that never got caught.
  10. It was simply an example. Given that he was the only player that left SLU to go to Missouri who had a poor academic record it was easy for me to use it. Since I am not a fan of the Missouri BB team I really did not keep up with all the other potential academic slight of hands that may have taken place there.
  11. Yes and when Frazier left SLU due to grades Stewart said he had no eligibility problems for Missouri. Go figure
  12. I understand but technically was RM listed as head coach in the fall - good point about Reggie signing in the spring.
  13. Was RM still a live and technically the coach at the time they signed LOIs? JC was only the interim when RM had to take a medical leave.
  14. StL is in the swath - maybe not dead center but close enough.
  15. Do you think they know that this is the total eclipse?
