  1. You think University of Montana will finally give them a home and home or are they too chicken? Of course Montana probably feels like they are big brother to Montana St. and has everything to lose by playing them. When Montana St. sucks they say it'll hurt their RPI. When Montana St. is good they say they already have a game in the same city as Montana St. and don't want to legitimize them. Maybe they should start the game at a neutral site but where is fair? They've been arguing about this for 40 years and except for a 3 game window, they never play!
  2. Agreed, although I suspect the final 6 games will be mostly buy games.
  3. Sustainable is the word that saves you here. Because SLU's best three teams in the last 15 years were all done with players not from St. Louis. And mizzou has had only 10 or so ST. Louis area recruits over the past 15 or so years, so they certainly arent relying on local kids. Even ford's rebuilt team for next year, which we are all very excited about, has a grand total of 1 local player on it (Goodwin). im all for local recruiting but it's certainly not the end all be all for our success.
  4. Been said multiple times now...the 2018 recruits will sign before a single game next season is played. Any talk of the need to mesh is just bs.
  5. I agree. Thought the same thing myself. Total coach speak. We'd all rather Kim Andersen still be coaching mizzou, much the same way mizzou fans would rather Jim crews be coaching SLU.
  6. Come on Thicks. I still haven't convinced Taj that Ash Y (who signed after Reggie) wasn't really a Majerus recruit so there's no way you can tell me that the ghost of RM wasn't the primary recruiter for Mike and Reggie!
  7. Because St. Albans is to the west of the city it puts us in the path of the total eclipse. Not dead center like Carbondale but we will definitely see it for a while.
  8. Tourney has been rescheduled for Monday August 21 at St. Albans. Same day as the total eclipse through the region.
  9. Of course we want the OPTION for Bishop to have a third year. If he's playing well and is a valuable member of the team we get a 5th year player familiar with the system, coach, etc. If Bishop gets stuck on the bench these next two years, then you let him walk away as a graduate transfer 5th year and he plays immediately elsewhere. It's a classic win-win situation.
  10. Carter's problem was that he played, got hurt, then played again (21 minutes) and then shortly thereafter transferred. Hard to claim you were injured and couldn't finish the season when you had just played in a game before deciding to transfer. http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/player/gamelog/_/id/61186/year/2013/keith-carter
  11. Agreed we won't get an impact guy. But another 5th year transfer makes total sense.
  12. Personally, I'd fill the last scholarship with another big man grad transfer, but a sharpshooter makes sense too. Either way, we should be very good next year.
  13. Looks like the preliminary games are set. Fri. Nov 10 vs. Seattle and Wed. Nov 22 vs. Detroit Mercy http://www.slubillikens.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=27200&ATCLID=211598601 Mods, can we get a schedule update on the front page with the known games and dates, etc.
  14. Good stuff. Exactly the type of team we should be adding given it's nearly impossible to get P5 teams to play you home and home.
  15. If that's the case I'm sure his teachers at East St. Louis will make sure he gets the grades he needs. They won't want to be the ones holding him back from college.
