I don't think baniak was a business major. He was premed and may have dropped out of premed but I think his degree was psychology. I had several classes with him.

While school may not have hindered his bball career I do wonder if basketball kept him out of premed.

I think he has gotten too much credit on this board, like TheChosenOne says. He was a handful at SLU, to put it mildly. Major discipline and maturity issues. Any reconciliation between him and Romar happened later, and my guess is that it had to be Justin who realized he was a punk back then.
Baniak dropped the pre-med thing and transferred to the business school. As a Cook School of Business alum, let me say from experience that there's no way it was academic pressure that kept Baniak from developing more as a player. I think he works in the health field these days, but on the business side of things.

Ok it is Ridiculous what I said but Slu's options for 2 scholarships are limited to 3 people now that jesperson is probably not coming here

You're right. There r only 3 possibilities to fill the two spots. Of course if there were others we would surely already know given that we are an all knowing message board.

And again you still don't know all the details about why drew is not returning. My guess is that none of us will ever hear the whole story

Totally disagree on that Randy O follows Jared Drew Aka(Uncle Deuce). So I Highly think that he knows what happened. And i am really sure he was close to commiting to slu and now is nowhere close to commiting here.

This is all speculation and its pretty silly. You have no clue why drew was let go. You have no clue what the interest in onwuasor is like or what drew leaving will do to our recruiting of him. Ridiculous

Again, jumping to worst case scenario conclusion without knowing all details. We don't know why this happened yet

The fact drew tweeted he didn't want to go and the fact this all takes place so late is enough to say if we do the right thing it does not happen. At least rickma could say it wasn't his player. This staff was here when drew signed. They found him recruited him begged him to be a billiken. Talked him into giving up a redshirt season. Now he will lose another season.

This is embarrassing and wrong and I hope is not going to be the norm for Jim Crews. I hoped for better and have to tell you after originally (last fall) being all against crews as our coach, after an amazing season and what seemed like a class performance off the court I came around to supporting crews.

But this sure doesn't stack up. I sincerely hope this stops now and there is no more of this b.s. IF this turns into an Apr issue, crews should be fired. However I suspect the reason crews waited this long was to make sure it wasn't going to be an Apr issue. Wouldn't that be ironic. The reason drew gets cut is because he HAD good grades. He would have gotten to stay at the school he wanted to be at if he would have tanked his classes.

Washington St also didn't redshirt him, robbing him a year of precious playing time.

Lets not jump off the depend yet. No one on here has any clue what went down. Nor do I. But to jump to all these conclusions is pointless
