  1. Incoming recruits - updates (2017)

    How did SLU not get penalized during those early RM years? I thought if your APR fell bellow 230 for two years in a row the NCAA could reduce practice time and even cut the number of scholarships available.
  2. Jamal Walker - Now or Later?

    fans on the mizzou message board seem to believe that counzo "should" be able to flip tilmon, goodwin, thatch, and gordon to all come to mizzou. lol What I want to know, since when did counzo become such an ICON like Izzo, kyzyzewski, pitino, etc. I think mizzou fans should lay off the meth a little bit.
  3. Recruiting - 2017

    Face with tears of joy, not sure about the shapes but SLU (unknown) > baby
  4. Recruiting - 2017

    Prior to the news that Tilmon would not be signing right away; the Illinois message board was saying he was going to play for 2 years. I just wonder why they were thinking that. If he were to sign here and play for 2 years, I couldn't even imagine how good the front court would be.
  5. Recruiting - 2017

    On 247, a recruiting analyst switched his prediction to SLU for Tilmon.
  6. Recruiting - 2017

    Tay and J show was talking about Tilmon. Begins at 2:05:50. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9R30CVuRVE&feature=player_embedded
  7. Who Is In Your Rotation

    I know someone already mentioned this, but to me its really noticeable how much size Gillmann put on. Maybe Im just seeing things; but the kid looks like he really hit the gym hard since last season. Maybe the team photo is deceiving.....
  8. Recruiting - 2016

    I wish we would get a solid PG. I thought there was a solid PG still undecided that played with DR at White Station.
  9. Its an old article but with the new hire,and the Rams leaving stl I think this is even more relevant. Im posting using my phone so hopefully the link works. http://m.bleacherreport.com/articles/1314132-st-louis-university-is-key-to-college-basketball-supremacy-in-stl
  10. Milik is gone

    MY has an incredible "physical" skill set, he just did not have the basketball IQ equal to that. I still like MR and DR and believe under better coaching they could really improve....just sucks that 2 years of their careers are already gone. BJ is another guy who just doesn't seem to click with the pace this level requires. I just really hope MN, and EW stay. Best of luck to anyone that leaves.
  11. Coaching Candidates

    I graduated in 2010 and different degrees had different requirements even for the "core" I know when I was in Parks College it required a lot less of the humanities. I thought the business school had different requirements than Arts and Sciences as well. Most of the intro classes for the humanities were very easy. Personally I just don't see SLU's academics as a deterrent for quality players. Look at schools that are equal or even better than SLU in academics and they still do well, Villanova, Xavier, Gonzaga, Georgetown, Marquette, Creighton, etc. I do agree that transfers from Juco or other schools have a disadvantage. Its hard for them to squeeze all the requirements in.....not sure how the other private institutions handle this. I know when I switched from Engineering to Chemistry I had to really cram a lot of the core requirements in. Oh and as someone posted earlier.....i think the average act for SLU is 28 with a minimum of 25 @64% acceptance rate.
  12. Lville over the Bills by 17

    Almost every player has flashed their potential at some point. It's time for that all to culminate into a shocking Bills win. Forget the odds, let the kool-aid flow. We deserve this as fans for what we endured last season.
  13. GDT - SIUe

    I know some people are saying how Neufeld may be a year away, but so far he has only played 14 total minites. Fouls limited him last game. Unlike most freshman bigs, Neufeld has the size to contend in the paint. I think once he gets accustomed to the pace of D1, figures out how to play solid D without fouling, he will be a huge asset. Could be wrong, but I wouldn't be surprised if he comes up huge for us in a few conference games.
  14. Observations So Far..and Kudos to Crews

    I don't think Roby has regressed, just don't think we have seen any sign of improvement yet...but its only been 2 games. Bartley was pulled after he fouled a 3 point shooter...yet again. Miles seems to be the best improvement thus far. Aside from MY at FT last night, we improved our %. Seeing MN in person suprised me. He is a lot more filled out that I thought. His biggest issue seems to be getting accustomed to the NCAA rules on defense and getting into foul trouble. Especially this year, I wouldn't be suprised if most freshman have issues with this. But he does have a nice touch and I think he could be a huge contributer down the road. Jolly just looks so lost on defense, and doesn't handle the ball very well.
  15. GDT: Hartford, long live the Whalers

    Just started watching the second half. From what I have seen so far, AY and MR look pretty good actually. Jolly looks to contend in the paint much better so far.
