Listener of the Streets (6/7)

  1. I'm with you. I didn't and still don't see anywhere where it said the poll was for the exhibition game only. Since that's the way some thought it was then I can understand some of the replies.
  2. I'm surprised at how many go with U on Perkins scoring 14.5 pts per game. If they are correct we can kiss the NCAA tournament good-bye.
  3. and now back to our regularly scheduled program - the 2021-2 Billikens basketball season!
  4. Agree. If you have a secret scrimmage you can only have one exhibition game. Wow, we are up to 4 straight posts actually about Billikens basketball !
  5. Bonnies come in at #19. Probably the highest for an A-10 team in a few years. It will be nice to beat them twice in the regular season this year and a third time if we play them in the A-10 tourney. Reading the write up doesn't make it obvious that they have improved their depth so they might still be relying on the 5 starters from last year for over 30 minutes each. I think our depth will be too much for them. Now if we can just find a reliable bus driver.
  6. Thanks to you and courtside for the reply. If the four others in the picture are returning for next year that will be outstanding as they are all starter or starter quality.
  7. Does anybody know why Lawler is in the senior night picture? Is she going to by-pass her last year of eligibility?
  8. Now we are up to a "rumor" about one sponsor backing out which means the Blues are losing sponsorship dollars. Don't you think some sponsors sit out a year or spend less than in previous years, while at the same time new sponsors come on board and others increase their dollar sponsorship. A beer, really? That's the best you got? Actually due to a family situation I dropped my season tickets that year and did not attend any games, - I might be forgetting one or two games. I know as a student manager of the women's VB team you learned all there is to know about all things Billikens sports. Your recent pissing contest with courtside about soccer was especially enjoyable. It was like you brought a knife to a gunfight. Issue with you over nothing, humm. Actually I have complimented you on a number of your podcasts, but whatever? PM me your address and I'll be glad to send you the cost of a beer so you can get over a major issue that you are hanging on to from a few years ago
  9. The Blues revenue quote you referenced in your above post was made by 05 and has absolutely no basis in fact. It's source, according to 05 is what he heard from a friend, which of course means it must be true. Actually, I heard just the opposite from an unnamed source who is in the sports marketing business.
  10. I can't believe that SLU will not require some vaccination, or negative w/in 72 hrs test result, to allow people to attend games. The Blues can do it with twice the attendance. If that winds up as the final policy I will not be attending any games. They can sell my seat to an anti-vaxer from north St Louis city or county or Franklin County. That policy has to change.
  11. Don't miss this article if you subscribe to the Athletic. It is fantastic!
  12. Ok, we have now seen the team (open practice) and the first exhibition is only 8 days away so what ya got for our record? 13 OOC and 18 A-10 for 31 games before the A-10 tournament. While we have the toughest NC schedule I can ever remember, I also think we have the talent to have a great year. This assumes no key injuries or other team distractions, if you know what I mean. I usually think we are better than we turn out to be, but sometime I hope to be on target. OOC 12-1 (Memphis loss) Toss up games -Auburn, Belmont, UAB. Hard to win at Memphis but at least we get them early A-10 15-3 ( Away games at SBU, Richmond and Dayton) Might win at UD but lose as usual at DUQ. Total 27-4 prior to Tournaments --- Optimistic guess.; 22-9 --- Not drinking the kool-aid guess
  13. Who is LinBen? Is that Linssen or a combination of Linssen and either AL or LT? And you have LinBen shown with 20 minutes and at the end scratching for access to rotation.
  14. I don't know what kind of defense they were playing on the Yuri dime to JP (or should have been playing) but if they were in a M 2 M then I expect that Williams was the supposed defender on Yuri. I'm pretty sure that Yuri was not Linssen's assignment.
  15. Then color yourself clueless. Alberts and his philosophy are what MO wants-all the New School numbers. Forget about "Hit em where they ain't." I am sick of the TV screen telling me about launch angles, exit velocity, wins above replacement and spin rates along with talking heads who think we know what those things are or how to calculate them or even care about those new measures. Two of the most exciting plays in the last few weeks of this season were 1) Bader scoring from 1st on a single ; and 2) the double play where just about the entire team was involved... I didn't hear any announcer need to use any new measurement terms to describe either play. Imagine that.
