  1. I don't know, I kind of like them. The present uniforms we had for years are boring. I do like the black ones. Those of you that go back to the Al McGuire coached Marquette teams, they had some really wild uniforms. Would give them a kind of a "c'est magnifique!"
  2. Compared to LaSalle, this is a palace. Happy to see they are investing some $ into the program, we need a stronger A10.
  3. He played when I attended SLU, he would be a good choice with his marketing and playing experience.
  4. Just checked out the list, something different then previous years. A lot of the West Coast Conf catholic schools are ranked higher then us. In years past they were considered Regional Universities. I now wonder what distinguishes a National University from a Regional University.
  5. I didn't think it was worth starting a new thread. Interesting read. I have seen Red Panda at other arenas and always enjoyed the show. She is amazing.
  6. Anyone know when the Red Panda will perform at the Chaifetz?? https://www.si.com/nba/2019/08/28/red-panda-rong-niu-nba-halftime-china-76ers-warriors?utm_source
  7. Court, is this Luther Burden related to the Burden that played here in the mid-80s?
  8. Steve, since I read earlier that majority of these new freshmen students are local (Mo-Ill), did the Admission Dept market better. Did you notice more on-campus open houses and get the admission counselors out to the local high schools? SLU had a successful capital campaign to celebrate 200 years. If they used some of that for student financial aid, that a good investment. "No students means no University".
  9. This is a good schedule. Ended up just fine.
  10. The big problem with guards like Irving, Burns and Perry getting into the NBA is height. Sure we have exceptions, like Calvin Murphy, but they are rare.
  11. He only averaged 3.7 at Univ of Arkansas-Ft Smith. Also back in the day when Siena had Fran McCaffrey as coach they were not bad. Almost beat Purdue in the 2010 NCAAs. Also they are not a bad draw at the Times Union Ctr.
  12. Curious Larry, are you going to the Auburn game in Birmingham? Unless something comes up I should be able to make it.
  13. Larry, Cincy was out by 70-1 and played as an Independent. https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/conferences/mvc/1971.html I see they left in 1969: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missouri_Valley_Conference
  14. This is a really good OOC schedule. Best since my freshman year (70-1). That year we had UCLA, Marq, Notre Dame, Ill, Mizzou, Michigan, Cincy & Dayton. My compliments to Ford & the AD.
