    The thing that is sad about Willie is that the money he made basically evaporated. I doubt he still has significant money stashed away. Keeping the money you make is oftentimes harder than making it.

    You may be right but how the heck do you know Willie's financial situation?  It seems like you are stereotyping, based on almost nothing......

    Man, he has really transformed his body.  Gotta love the dedication and hard work to do that.  Looking forward to Bell’s years as a Billiken.

    Yeah I forgot about his weight loss.  In that last pic he looks like he could put on some bulk...

    Do you mean the original Audrey Hepburn movie?  Probably not, but that was a great movie which my wife loves.

    OMG did you see the new book about Audrey Hepbern?  I've always loved her as an actress but she was working with the Dutch resistance in WWII when she was 10.

    Speaking of Sabrina…….Humphrey Bogart > Harrison Ford and Audrey Hebern > Julia Ormond. Not even the same ball park....  


  4. The long and the short of it for me is that anything that makes it harder for lower level programs to compete is problematic.  In my opinion there is no fair way to players to get paid differently by different schools.  Maybe some sort of revenue sharing split among all D1 players based on total revenue could work.  We've got enough problems as it is with sleazy coaches and street agents and shoe companies and bogus classes and greedy hangers on .  Throw a bunch of cash in that dumpster fire and count me out.....

    Rockwell good.  

    Olive + Oak good too ("STL proper" cracked me up though). 

    Mac's better

    I've noticed Rockwell has become a pretty good post-game hangout for Bills fans. 

     

    Me and the little lady were there quite often.  We are always the oldest people there but it's still good.  If the field house is ridiculously busy Urban Chestnut is terrific pregame....

    Game at the Arena, vs SIU.  Spoon coach, the place was friggin' packed.  They had to take down the tarps in the end zones of the upper deck.  So freakin' loud.  That was for me when I knew SLU bball was back.

    mhg

    my mouth dropped open when I saw those tarps being removed

    Just in case our guys are the MJ types who get worked up & play better when angry / they feel slighted:

    You guys all stink.  You got lucky to win 4 games in 4 days because the rest of the A10 is mediocre and you didn't have to play VCU.  Virginia Tech is a big bad ACC team who will eat you guys for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  You got lucky last year when they didn't see you coming and now that they won't overlook you, you're toast.

    Bess - good thing you left Michigan State because you couldn't hack it in the Big Ten

    TI - too short / not good enough for the NBA

    French - too short to be effective inside against an ACC team

    Goodwin - "needs a ton of work"

     

    From  the "Gobbler Country.com"  website tourney preview:

     

    "The Hokies have been dealt a decent hand by the selection committee. The first round match-up should be relatively easy for Tech against Saint Louis."

     

    Just in case we need more bulletin board material.....

    Rich, this is not something I want to go to war about, or anything; I'm not trying to jump down your throat.  I just was clarifying.  72 was not propagating a rumor about a departure; you see that now, so we can move on.

    Got it.

    He was counting players on the team.  His second-to-last sentence was "That's 12," including two frontcourt players to-be-named.

    Besides, how would he get from the three openings SLU has now to five?

    I admit I did not read his post as closely as I could have.  Are you happy now?  If i used your name and murder in an unclear sentence, do you think you might be prone to jumping to conclusions?  What if there was uninformed speculation that it might be the case?

    Spelling the signed recruit's name properly isn't an option?

    It is but not every fan is fanatical about spelling.  It is a loosing proposition to loose your mind about it.  Lose and loose drive me nuts when they get used interchangeably but again, I'm not a fanatic about it.....
