  1. Hope those Left Coast football players don't freeze to death when they have to go to Big 10 team stadiums in snowy extremely cold Temps!
  2. Maybe this move could benefit the Bills as Coach McKillop sure did have CTF's number!
  3. Just saw a report from Tucson, AZ newspaper that Ramey will transfer to Arizona.
  4. Saw recent speculation that Ramey could wind up at West VA with his former teammate of last year Tre Mitchell.
  5. See the Hall of Famer died at 73. He led St. Bonaventure to the Final Four and was a great NBA player besides being an ambassador for basketball.
  6. Give me Rick Majerus over the Bills current HC any day of the week as he can coach rings around Travis Ford!
  7. Needless to say the top players that have or will enter the portal will be looking for their best NIL deal.
  8. Lived in a couple NBA cities (actually 3 including St. Louis since I remember the St. Louis Hawks and when they beat Boston for the NBA title). Worked at Kiel Auditorium before they moved to Atlanta. When we were in Seattle area they had the Sonics. Remember a game we saw there when they played the 76ers, and my family cheered when Larry Hughes scored. Fan in front of us turned and said Saint Louis U and we said you bet. We lived in South Florida when LBJ played for the Heat, and won two NBA titles. Still root for the Heat, and hope they have a run at another NBA title this year.
  9. Sorry like many on here I don't know you from Adam, but it does seem to me you like to deal in a lot of conjecture. I can tell you this I don't have any facts on why Yuri decided to get in the transfer portal, and I don't care to guess his reasons. What I do know for certain is after deciding to enter the portal...he decided to come back to play for the Bills, and that is the only fact that matters today. As I've said all along it's Yuri's decision and if he's happy then I'm happy for him. As far as I'm concerned speculation on what did or did not happen is conjecture, and doesn't matter now.
  10. If you are referencing Sunrise Christian Academy as a pretend HS then please humor me...what is Montverde Academy in my home state of FL? If so, the Bills have a player from one of those HS.
  11. No where in what I just wrote did I mention that the UT Assistant Coach contacted Yuri directly and neither did the author of the article I read.
  12. I read a recent article and the writer said the UT connection for Yuri was a young Asst Coach named Rod Carter. He's originally from Kansas City, MO. Had an Asst Coaching stint at Sunrise Christian Academy, and also one with the MO-Kan AAU team.
  13. FYI Yuri never made a visit to Knoxville, TN.
  14. No, I was mentioning something I saw about Oklahoma's football team. For the P-5 conferences football pretty much runs their athletic department. Those schools will spend crazy money to compete with NIL instead of trying to get away with cheating as it used to be.
  15. Nope...by big I don't think there is anyone who can sub at the 5...when FO needs a rest or is in foul trouble. I don't recall seeing Thatch sub in as a 5.
  16. Read shortly after Oklahoma AD was whining about NIL that OU football players will be receiving at least $50K starting this season.
  17. Bills still could use a backup big.
  18. No, Key is not seen as a backup PG...he's a 2 Guard. Zakai Ziegler played a lot of PG when Kennedy Chandler was getting a rest. They recruited a 4 Star PG BJ Edwards who will get the backup PG minutes if they don't recruit someone else.
  19. I'm not so sure that your last paragraph doesn't happen once the major conferences finish with the consolidation that is driven by the major football conferences. For the major conferences College Football is the key to their entire athletic programs.
  20. When UCLA came after Rick Barnes my memory was that Phil Fulmer who was AD at UT at that time ponied up around $5M to keep CRB at Knoxville. Don't think Josh Heupel the football HC has reached that neighborhood yet, but don't remember seeing where he started,
  21. If he does land at UT there is an opening for a PG as Kennedy Chandler their 5 Star PG will be drafted in the NBA 1st round. They did have another player in Frosh Zakai Ziegler who did get significant minutes last year. ZZ is a nice change of pace player who brings a lot to the floor but I see Yuri as the starter with ZZ as a backup if Yuri does head to UT as anticipated.
  22. Any apology is not needed. I have been a fan of the Bills long before I even knew my wife who is the VFL. Heck I did not meet her until I was beyond my mid 20's. I thought because my first love was to my SLU Alma Mater it was good to give folks on this website a heads up. Frankly, the reaction after I did startled me. I've been a regular since the days when David Nark ran Billikens.com. Don't recognize many of the current folks from those days. I became a fan when John Bennington was HC back in the 50's probably before some of you were in diapers. I've seen some horrible basketball and some good basketball. I still remember very fondly driving most of the night to get to Wichita, KS with my wife and daughter to see the Bills play MD in the Big Dance. It was their first NCAA bid in what seems like decades. Never was I more proud to be a life long Bills fan that day, and I had tears in my eyes when they played the Anthem. I've seen good HC's really like Spoon and got to know him a bit. No doubt I have huge respect for the job Hall of Famer Rick Majerus did for the Bills in his brief time. Hope we can find someone close to as good as a HC as he was. It's bitter sweet for me to see Yuri make this decision, but as I stated before it is his decision and only he knows what went into his decision. Thanks Yuri of the great plays you made as a Billiken player. If the Vols played SLU I'd be rooting for SLU; however, I will root for Yuri if he does decide to attend UT. Their athletic facilities at UT that I've seen are 2nd to none. Really think their new AD White has all programs there headed in the right direction.
  23. Well Wooden was the GOAT of college HC's and no one has approached his level and probably won't in my lifetime.
  24. Well as a Bills fan I saw the earliest NCAA run the Zags made in the NCAA as I attended the early NCAA rounds in Seattle for that very 1st Tourney in the latter 90's. I would have went bonkers to see the Bills have the run that Jesuit U has had over the years thru 2 different HC's. I was on a cruise ship in a bar watching the hard fought loss they had to NC in the Final Game. I was fairly surprised by the number of people watching the game who were obviously as I was rooting for the Zags to win.
