  1. Tennis courts could replace Fr Biondi’s lake. I believe there are long term plans for an indoor tennis facility on the med school campus. I also thought I saw where Top Golf was going to put a facility along Grand. I believe where Captain D's is or was. Or did I make that up? Of course, all plans are subject to change in the current economic environment.
  2. I wonder how much taped hands and thumbs impacted his confidence and shooting?
  3. I put BBQ and burgers in there next to pizza , when it's good it's great, and when it's bad it's still good. The Block has a good burger also and Dalie's has good BBQ. SIAP.
  4. Burns was really great as mentioned above. If I recall correctly SLU used to run a 4 corners offense every once in a while with Burns in the middle with the ball to take advantage of his speed.
  5. Saw this on the Duquesne board and thought it was fun read. Interestingly, if you change the site from 'away' to 'neutral', this turns into a projected win for the Bills. I like to look at all of the quant sites (Massey, Kenpom, Warren Nolan, etc.) and think the work the Wiz does (thank you!) is better than most, if not all. The 'trend' piece to his work appears to be somewhat unique. Thanks again Wiz. http://haslametrics.com/preview.php?yr=&tid1=4391&tid2=301&neut=0
  6. UNC played is here to give Tyler Hansborough “home” game. That turned into a home and home.
  7. https://www.bcinterruption.com/2019/11/27/20985109/previewing-and-how-to-watch-mens-basketball-saint-louis-billikens-boston-college-eagles try this for a write up
  8. The Clagget/H/Highmark teams were “small” and did just fine. Don’t turn the ball over and you can negate the rebounding deficit.
  9. Anyone else hear that coach was in Italy recruiting a foreign big?
  10. I have thought this for a while. It can hurt at tournament time against elite teams (a good problem for SLU to have). But it is paramount to have good shooters and ball handlers for this strategy to be effective IMO.
  11. More than the shooting I think we need to fix the turnovers. If we don't make a high % of shots then we need to take more than our opponent. More possessions ending in shots (made or missed) and less throwing the ball away. A true point guard (I would prefer 2) would help with that. I get JGood has/wants to be a PG to play at the next level. He isn't an elite college PG yet and the lack of one on our roster is the glaring hole IMO.
  12. https://hoopdirt.com/ Good place to follow coaching changes and rumors. I have always wondered who this guy is....he seems pretty hooked in.
  13. There is a scenario where it makes a little sense to practice but not play. This is all hypothetical so please don’t shoot me. In reading through some of the other Title IX cases it appears accommodations are made for the accusers. Class schedules can be changed and every measure is taken to keep the parties separated during the process. Who would be in attendance at games but not when the team practices? And while the accused players travel, are they in the arena on game day when maybe those others hypothetically are in attendance? That scenario fits with other things I have heard. Which could all be BS. None of us knows but there is a rationale to practice but not play. I don’t like it if true but I don’t think we will ever know.
  14. Of course. It seems the campus code of conduct would cut both ways, but the criminal allegations are a completely different story. Honestly, it must be impossible to buy a male college student in today's world.
  15. I am sorry if I missed the answer to this in the first 108 pages and I am 100% guilty of rumor mongering and will own it, so.... I have heard one of the girls involved is a cheerleader and has been at the games? If true, that seems like the ultimate double standard. I have no interest in knowing who the girl is, just curious if that is actually the case.
