So on July 16, Ben Weixlmann tweets out a new name on the Bills 2015 radar and it is met with ................. SILENCE.  I know Ben's got a premium site but it's almost a week now.  So who is it or do we have him listed on Steve's Wiki list already?

Remember that if Ben W catches a member disclosing the info he posts then he banishes them from his site so no wonder the name has not surfaced

Can't go until next year.

I wonder how they will pay for it since RM had to foot some of the bill for the last one.

What about Brett Thompson's dad from the oil rig? Griffey's dad started out fine, but became too condescending about the SLU program near the end for my liking. 3Star was excellent. Footes was  a troll in sheep's clothing. So was Triangle, although he was a lot more clever and entertaining. Courtside was an interesting one. I found myself agreeing with him half the time and the other half thinking he was way off, but his posts were almost always well thought out and he sparked a lot of good debate. Pdiddy was awesome back in the pre-RM days with inside info, but I sense that as soon as RM came to town, he no longer had the same kind of insider info. I get the sense that he has morphed into more of a local HS bball fan than a SLU fan. I miss basketballcountry.  Where did Pistol go? Hope he comes back.

 

I believe it was Thompson's brother not father on the oil rig.  Griffy's dad kept a somewhat impartial approach to the whole recruiting process so if he started to sound a bit less interested in SLU then it probably was due to the fact that his kid was less interested.

I'm all for optimism but 20-22 wins will not be good enough for the NCAA tourney (particularly if you are including the A-10 tourney in your win total). Our non-con schedule is shaping up to be pretty mediocre and I doubt we can expect the A-10 to be as strong as it has been the past 2 years.

I agree 20-22 wins is not enough to get into the tourney unless you expect to win the conf tourney then your record is irrelevant.

Now I'm excited. Doc B's analyses are not to be deemed "homeristic". He was right on 4 years ago when he pegged DE as the best in class, when most of us were overlooking him. Especially like the call on Crawford and Lancona, especially MC. We need a sniper in the worst way. See the 0-15 from 3 land against UL in the dance and the loss to OU the previous year for evidence. Other than VCU I don't see any other teams in the A-10 being that strong that we can't hang with them. Go Bills!

Anybody who saw DE for the first time picked him as a player.
