  1. 2017-2018 Schedule

    According to Jeff Goodman this is happening on the 28th.
  2. 2017-2018 Schedule

    Get Memphis on the phone and tell them to set up a game there and that slu will cover their own travel expenses. Play it at the Elma Roane Fieldhouse on the Memphis campus or even at the De La Salle Gymnasium at CBC if the FedEx isn't available. This team could use court time against another real program before the season starts.

    You’re probably not going to like where SI has us either. https://www.si.com/college-basketball/2017/10/19/atlantic-10-projections-preview-team-rankings-standings

    He has SLU improving 105 spots in his ratings. For comparison he has Mizzou improving 75 spots to 81. I wouldn’t worry about where he has us now. Systems like Pomeroy have a tough time dealing with such a high number of new players. Worry about where he has us a third of the way into the season.
  5. College was cheaper, music was better, people were nicer because everything wasn’t political and you could actually get away from it all for a weekend because technology wasn’t so pervasive.
  6. Because of a false sexual assault allegation this is now going through the Title IX process which changes what the school can do and being a non public institution doesn’t protect SLU if they try to enforce their own rules. On Monday Pomona College, a private institution, lost a lawsuit where they tried to suspend a male student for two semesters for what the school considered sexual misconduct.
  7. With the outside counsel handling the Title IX process I wouldn’t be surprised if conduct board never sees the case. They are paying them to protect them from getting sued by either side. That law firm is going to decide SLU’s response and not some conduct board.

    It will be interesting to see what kind of media coverage the Illini get if they are good. There is no local Illini beat writer anymore for the local stations to have as their go to guy to talk about the Illini. Which ***** about the coverage SLU gets from the Post, but at least we don't have to settle for stories reprinted from the Decatur Herald and wire reports.
  9. SLU Soccer 2017

    The weakness of the conference has really hurt their RPI. On October 8 their RPI was at 33. After wins over Rhode Island and Richmond their RPI was at 49. They are probably going to have to win the conference tournament to make the NCAA.

    Supposedly Ayo is the reason why Horton-Tucker switched from Mac Fire to Team Rose. Who knows if it is true and if it was the reason was it personal or just to have a chance to better showcase himself out of Ayo's shadow. Roy Schmidt has always maintained those stories are BS. But........ Roy Schmidt had a tweet last night, now deleted, that suggested that it was Ayo's people that don't want Horton-Tucker to play with Ayo. Then he tweeted this morning in reply to Ayo having already reached out to Tucker since his commitment, "you can book it". So who knows?

    Ayo commuted last night to the Illini. Some think that will hurt hurt their chances with Talen Horton-Tucker who is visiting the Illini this weekend.
  12. OT: Tatum cashes in

    I was in the Jayson is dead to me camp. He is so damn likable and so pro St. Louis that is was impossible to stay in that camp. Plus, he did us a favor by not prolonging the Crews Era.
  13. Leniency for players has never happened with the student conduct committee. What they did Reed and Mitchell was a miscarriage of justice. Especially what happened to Reed in light of what the police report contained.
  14. Certain changes went into effect with a Q&A sheet that went out at the end of December. The two biggest changes probably were the elimination of the 60 day time limit, the right to cross examine accusers and the fact that students accused of sexual assault have the right to choose an advisor of their choice. https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/docs/qa-title-ix-201709.pdf

    I was sort of surprised to see both Hargrove and Okoro were going to spend the weekend at IL St.. Okoro is from Normal, so that makes some sense.
