    Recruiting - 2019

    yep, just drove by on google maps, then went inside on the new google features. Cool place, I'll be back.
  3. Pretty interesting discussion by Coach Ford on the Bernie Show talking about Marcus Smart coming back to OSU his soph year. This was related to Zion's issue. Coach is also for the proposed change to 18 year olds for NBA eligibility. All in the 9 am hour near the end of the show. https://www.101espn.com/show_notes/the-bernie-miklasz-show-february-22-2019-blues-win-streak-ends-at-11/

    imo rickma was an ok recruiter but he was an off the chart practice, off season and preparation coach. no one in the history of college basketball could prepare a team like rickma. proof of above is crews first two seasons. we all now know crews did nothing but stay out of the way. that was all rickma.

    And with all due respect to Rick, our teams looked completely lost on offense until he got his guys and his system in here. I'm still willing to cut Travis some slack given the horrific luck he's had with defections and injuries and situations....

    Just googled New Castles who is #1. That is a very deceiving gym. Looks like 4k-5k not anywhere close to 9,325

    Recruiting - 2019

    I do think Ford came to SLU with the idea of making a big splash in the first 2-3 years and re-establish his rep as a quick turn around guy. He just got done in by some very bad luck. It wasn't poor recruiting by any means. Actually, I can't remember being as excited about his level of recruiting than any coach in recent memory including Rick's. Rick went about recruiting a different way. Get his type of guys, coach them up, and lay a systematic foundation for future success. Very different from Ford's initial approach of you win with players whether they be transfers, difficult 4 stars, and, now, a JUCO. Although, I am really excited about landing Perkins who looks like he could provide immediate help. No doubt Ford is not the coaching genius Rick was, few are. We'll just have to see if next year and the following two or three how good a coach he is. We know he can recruit at a high level, now, we need to find out more about the coaching and teaching part. That said, I don't think he's a lousy coach or teacher by any means. I'd rate him above average. He seems to be a great motivator and our guys are very well coached on Defense and now just hoping to see the same from our offense schemes.

    YES -- certainly possible, though maybe not around here. trivia moment: did you know that 13 of the 15 largest HS gyms in America are -- where? (hint -- I've been in a number of the top 10...) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_largest_high_school_gyms_in_the_United_States

    We're better than VCU? Surprising, but glad to hear it. I still see those empty lower bowl seats and get ticked. They should be packed.

    Recruiting - 2019

    i totally agree. i think both hargrove and perkins are capable of replacing bess within a year or two. and that is a tall order to fill. you can go back and look, i was never more than luke warm at best over gordon. i saw the physical potential, but his actions in h.s. from quitting on his teamates at vianny to his stunts at webster led me to believe he had issues. i was hopeful an inspiring coach like ford could bring him around. obviously that wasnt possible.
  21. Do-Over. How about the Olympic basketball game US vs Russia. 72 or 76. I'm too lazy to look it up. Do-Over twice.
  22. CBI CBI CBI! Can never get enough of Rammer and Earl on the call.

Elliott Welmer F out for season - Foot - 2/3/19 Welmer is sidelined with a left foot fracture and will likely miss the rest of the season.

    Destan Williams is 10th in juco in assists. I guess he must love Perkins.
