    GDT vs Buttler

    I know what Hargrove looks like. The guy I’m talking about wasn’t him.

    GDT vs Buttler

    I didn’t think to look until after the game, but there were some kids in the area where recruits normally sit. One was pretty tall with dreadlocks.

    Guy Phillips

    I wasn’t at the game but I might have booed too, or at least not applauded. I’ll acknowledge that he does some good things in the community, and should be recognized for that, but he’s a terrible PA announcer. A few years ago I got tired of him calling Dwayne Evans “Dwight”, so I sent him an email calling his attention to it. I thought I was courteous about it, but it really struck a nerve with him. He responded very defensively, essentially saying that anyone who claimed that he got the name wrong was making it up. While I’m far from a power player at SLU, I always thought it was really dumb of him to respond in the way we did, because he had no idea who I could have been.

    OT: Alton vs Riverview Fight

    Either that or play the season with the JV squad.

    2018-2019 20 point Watch......

    They already got 13 points in the first 6 minutes of the second half. Don’t think we’re losing the record tonight. Edit: EMU has 20 now.

    Signed Recruit Thread 2018-19

    I think his reason was that he had people telling him he was too good for SLU. To that, I wouldn’t want us to consider recruiting him. Apparently Rutgers is making him a priority. Let him finish last in the Big 10 every year.

    2018-2019 20 point Watch......

    I was working weird hours at work at the time and was asleep for the 20 Point game. I still hardly believe it happened. I really have a hard time comprehending how a team could only score 20 points in a game.

    This is my take as well. Gordon leaned in and said something, just not sure if it was to Powell or the guy behind Powell in line. Anyway, Powell reacted, which caused Gordon to react too.

    I just noticed that one of the refs is one of the clowns from the Northern Alabama game.

    No Criminal Charges to be filed

    I know many here, possibly myself included, were thinking/hoping that at some point in time, SLU would get hit with lawsuits after they threw out several players for something that did not lead to criminal charges. Legally speaking though, the fact that criminal charges weren't filed means little to nothing with regards to whether or not one of the players would prevail in a lawsuit against SLU. The bottom line is that SLU, as with other universities, can set their own guidelines as to what they believe amounts to consensual behavior. It doesn't have to line up with what criminal statutes say with regard to that behavior. Therefore, there will be instances (actually probably quite a few) in which behavior will violate SLU's guidelines but fall short of violating criminal law. Unless someone can make a civil rights case based on the players being targeted by race, I expect no lawsuits, or at least none that yield any results for the players.

    GDT: Don't Baste the Lions, Maul Them

    I’ve seen a lot of bad officiating in my life, but I’ve never seen anything as bad as these clowns. Fouls called against Goodwin and Isabell. No contact made in either of them. Absolutely atrocious.

    Nice! Did Budapest, Vienna, and Prague, with a stop in Brno while traveling from Vienna to Prague 2 years ago. All terrific cities!

    Enjoy! I hope you’re also going to Prague, Vienna, or any number of cool cities in that area!
