  1. I was told the board was prepared to give the official sign off in December and they were ready to break ground shortly thereafter. It's suppose to take about 18 mo. to build, so it would be close to being complete for two years from now.
  2. There is a pretty good chance I'll have extras for that game give me a call 342-2986
  3. I voted for Louisville ,but as usual my voted didn't register. Kind of reminds me of when I voted for George McGovern.
  4. If you believe that MU had absolutely nothing to do with the transfer of that game I have some Enron stock I'd like sell you.
  5. That would make a good poll question. While real life is not that b lack and white, but if you could choose would you rather have a team with 10 wins and 80% graduation rate or a team with 20 wins and a 20% graduation rate. I think if most of us we're honest we would choose the wins. I know a program can have both wins and high grad. rates,but I'm just asking.
  6. Just read an RFT article on PHL players leaving the city to play for county schools. In it they refer to Irons as former basketball coach who is now Vashon's athletic director. Did I miss something. When did Irons give up coaching?
  7. As rude as Norm was,and he was rude I remember Denny Crum being charming. I remember him telling a story about Chickenman and his rubber chicken.
  8. I spent 10 hours last night looking for Billilou memorabilia. I stuck out but did find a picture of Rich Grawer on a stick to be used as a mask,a Fallstaff beer mug with SLU Billikens on the glass,a Community Federal beer mug proclaing the Billikens as a Blue Chip,and about 10,000 plastic cups from the Arena and Keil with different Billiken images . Ekker- I know he is devil of Billiken basketball for many. While he was a terrible recruiter I maintain He was not the problem. He had zero administration support. The athletic dept consisted of Ekker 1 full time ast.coach,1 part time coach,Lis
  9. We're all going to Unca's house. He's got a wine cellar.
  10. Thats a pretty good description. It was totally Ekkers idea. You have to remember he was his own AD so he did whatever he wanted. I'll look and see if I can find something with Billilou on it.
  11. I bet if I looked hard enough I could find some billilou beer cups in some box. Maybe I could sell them on ebay''
  12. There is no way jj is going to put Sloan on the bench. I get the feeling that Brad believes Sloan will be his MVP. I was also at last nights meeting and didn't quite get the same feeling about Brad's comments about Johnson. I read his remarks as he really doesn't know what to expect from Johnson. Johnson has the tools but hasn't shown that he knows how to use them on a consistent basis. I felt Brad was saying he just doesn't know.
  13. Will do. Did your father live in Maryland Terrace?
  14. 55-one of the oldest farts on this board. stockbroker.2 SLU degrees-wife has 2 SLU degrees. Oldest son kshoe a SLU grad. One semester of tuition left for youngest son shoe. Have had season tickets since 1966 and have missed maybe 3 home games since then. Had a couple of grad classes with Bonwich's father.Liked him. Lived next to Jimmy Irving in the dorm. This is for you Roy, drank a few beers with Ron Ekker. Not a bad guy for someone with low morals.
  15. He's good enough to play major min. on the Eagles over a guy named Grimes.
  16. How about whether Triangle and Too should be banned from Billikens .com. You have free speech and humor on one side,and the common good on the other. Just a thought.
  17. Roy thats not quite true. SLU would not accept a D he received in an ethics class therefore he did not have enough credits. Some schools will accept D's thereby giving him enough credits. I know I'm talking symantecs but as far as the NCAA goes it's all about transferable hours.
  18. Yesterday as I was going to play a very rainy round of golf I had Burwells radio show on. He said he wanted to talk about SLU and the A10. He indicated that he had been "educated" by the many E mails he had received from the Billiken faithfull. I got the impression that he knew he had made a mistake. Unfortunately I had to get out of the car and didn't hear the program. Anybody hear it?
  19. Maybe you should look for a part time job at Walmart,then you wouldn't have so much time to kill.
  20. I believe Ramsey is influenced by the radio station he works for. Claiborne {who knows nothing about basketball] continually belittles SLU. Most of the stations staff are MU guys. Many went to school there. I think Maracek may be a MU grad. I wouldn't be surprised if many of the KFNS sponsors are MU people. If the Pasta House became a huge sponsor on KFNS I'd bet we would get more respect. Don't forget Claiborne got his start in sports as a flunkee in the Grawer athletic dept. He was a gofor who got his break by being one of Bonners agents.I don't think he was ever treated as a serious player
  21. I love Ramsey the play by play guy. I despise Ramsey the talk show host.He's opinonated to a fault. His act with Claiborne is poor at best. If I was Doug I would certainly dress him down.
