Jeeze. I am not trolling. No need to hate. I decided to post because I love SLU basketball and wanted to talk about it. If you are going to judge me based off the fact that I attend Mizzou and, therefore, root for them too that's fine, but it does not diminish my undying love for the Billikens. The only reason I am cautious as a Billikens fan is that I have gotten overly excited about a team before only to have my hopes dashed. I try and keep a level head about my teams. I think they will make the Tournament and have a great chance to do damage. But as a SLU fan, wouldn't you say that we should keep our expectations in check this early in the season? Let's win Sunday before we start punching our ticket to the dance.

Let's just say I'm not overly impressed by the teams that Mizzou has beaten. Notre Dame isn't very good. Washington is most likely better than Cal. Yet we should be cautious as SLU fans, but it's obvious that Mizzou will blow out Nova? Right.

You're absolutely right but maybe you could reverse the syllables of your title.

My title in no way denotes my preference or fandom of one team over another. I have been a SLU fan way longer than a Mizzou fan and quite frankly live and die with every SLU game a bit more than Mizzou. Haha. I can take the shiznit for being a Tiger fan as long as people realize I am a SLU fan too.

So, getting back to the whole Top 25 thing, who thinks we are ranked if we win? Haha.

GO BILLS!

Haith is getting his money's worth out of his MU players right now. Seems like he is getting a better return on investment in Columbia than he did at Miami.
No excuses this year.

UMC has been alright I guess. Not a fan. The pressure full court defense works non-conference against teams not used to seeing it, but conference games are the test. Are they still using the press in Columbia?

Since you are a long time reader of the board, you know quite well that some people here don't particular care for anything to do with that school. Surely you aren't that naive to think you could put that in your screen name and not catch some BS. Delusional.

Haha I said that I know people don't like Mizzou and I am fine with that. I can be a fan of both teams. And I will gladly take the BS that comes with it. It is only fair. All I ask is that my fandom for the Bills is not called into question. Because that is something that has been around long before I even knew what Mizzou was.

Only way I believe this is if you paint your face blue and white and buy beers for my whole row. Thanks buddy!

I am a broke college student. I can't afford beer for myself. Will the facepainting do?

Will the nice start equal a nice attendance for UMC at the Paige? Prob not, its deer season.

No arguments there. Fans only show up for conference play. No one wants to go watch the Tigers play opponents like SEMO, Binghampton and Mercer. They had a nice turnout at the Sprint Center this week though.

Not really. Haith has brought a high pressure, half-court defense to Columbia with him. It has worked better so far.

But, for real, I would rather talk some Billiken basketball. I have a Mizzou board for Tiger Basketball. This is the most excited I have ever been about a Billiken team maybe ever! Who does everyone want to draw Sunday? I say Oklahoma so we can go for another scalp. Then we would just be missing the SEC for a full house.

How was that attendance for Washington? Ramsey was touting a sell-out, I walk in and the whole upper bowl was practically empty. Worry about yourself before you bag others.
