  1. Probably not but they haven't been caught.
  2. Self is dirty. He's not going to Duke. I know many on here disagree but I'm not sure he lasts at Kansas.
  3. Making good coaching choices and keeping them happy is how SLU can succeed in all our programs. We had a good volleyball coach in Ann Kordis but couldn't keep her. In spite of a tough year our baseball coach has done a good job. Hopefully Kadish is that guy. Stone is obviously the best women' s basketball coach we've had. All good coaches. Give them the resources and they will succeed.
  4. I also heard the interview. He did say they will absolutely be filled then mumbled something like one could be saved.
  5. Hope you are right but as I stated earlier size is a problem.
  6. I think your getting a little excited about his prospects. Hopefully he will get an invite to a summer team. At his size and skill level I think he is a very long shot. Hopefully I am wrong.
  7. I think you should always bank at least one for that mid term transfer. I think we might have gotten Fletcher had we a scholarship to offer at the mids.
  8. Put them in the bank. We don’t need any more players for next year.
  9. I agree with almost everything you have stated here. My disagreement is with the 12 second weave criticism. I know Roy and others have stated criticism. Almost every team I watch does it at some point . Purpose is to move the defense to allow a one on one or a pass to a cutter. If you are unimpressed it’s with a lot of coaches not just Ford.
  10. This is Javonte's team. I think it was his team last year on the offensive side of the ball. When we needed to score he was the one who had the ball.
  11. I think in a normal year the number is 2 per team. Look at Missouri. Whole team is on the list.
  12. That’s why I started this thing saying they needed to be paid a reasonable sum of money. All getting the same amount.
  13. You are hung up on one and doners I believe Kentucky and Duke showed that that’s not how you win a championship. I would rather put my money in a Timme than a Suggs .
  14. I can be dead wrong but I think everyone is looking at this from the wrong side. The business side. I don’t think this will provide a return on investment but will allow avid boosters to legally buy players. Instead of hiring players to do sham work you can have them do legal promotion work. Let’s do a hypothetical. Aufenbergh (sp) Motors is an east side auto dealership. What’s to keep him from getting Goodwin to do a commercial for one of his dealerships. Might actually be a good investment. My point is I don’t see us having enough Aufenbergh’s in our program to compete with the Kentucky’s or Missouri’s for players like Jordan or Yuri. Kentucky may be a bad example as we don’t typically recruit against them but there are a lot of wealthy Missouri alumni in this area who give big bucks to their football program.
  15. I'm not sure what your point is but we do not have the top corporate support you may find in a lot of cities. With the exception of Doc I don't know of any deep pocket backers sitting at courtside.
  16. I don't agree. There are what 25-30 one and doners. Somebody like Jordan I believe would command money. Take an Okoro. Lots of teams would like a player of that size and potential . I believe it's that next level player that the bidding will center around.
  17. I am all for paying the kids a reasonable salary[few hundred dollars a month] but opening up a free market for endorsements is a terrible idea. Yes I know some kids are already being bought but this just makes it very difficult for mid sized programs like ours. I doubt Doc and Rex want to get in the player buying business.
  18. My guess,and I do mean guess, is there is no date. Start of school.
  19. I am sure all that ticket money went into the budget for the year. Even if they had the luxury of investing it at today rates that might add about $1.50 to your account.
  20. True. I won’t even pick one up.
  21. I am not really questioning what you are saying about Strickland but unless you have had the opportunity to see him at practice I’m not sure how you can make those statements. If you have had access I will buy your analysis. Point is we didn’t see enough to make any judgements except he can jump out of the gym.
  22. I am a huge Hargrove fan but man you are selling Evans short. There was very little Evans couldn’t do. Bigs couldn’t stay with him, smalls couldn’t keep him from the hoop. TJ lacks strength. That’s why he has trouble rebounding in a crowd. Evans was a very good athlete.
  23. Get with it. You have to use bitcoin.
