    Carte'Are Gordon Rumored to Transfer

    That has to be a rare occurrence...playing against a team early in the season, and then sitting on the bench in street clothes for a second game when the school you transferred to plays them again.

    I don’t know what the rule is, but if it’s based on when an academic term ends, that may be the case.

    Carte'Are Gordon Rumored to Transfer

    This is unfortunate, but unless you were really optimistic going in, or just hadn’t heard things about him in high school, you probably didn’t think that his time at SLU was going to end ideally. Obviously this depleted the depth, but hopefully this brings the team together.

    A friend’s brother was in a class with Hughes that semester. Got paired with him for a class project. The presentation time for the project was the exact time when Larry was announcing that he was declaring for the draft.

    Alford booted mid season

    I’ll always remember when his New Mexico team came to Chaifetz 6 years ago today and Alford picked up 2 technicals in about 5 seconds and got ejected.

    OT: Midtown Development

    Second this. Actually a fairly good selection too.

    GDT Hot Old Ladies

    I’ve seen a lot of bad calls, but a blocking foul when the Houston player ran into his own teammate may one of the worst I’ve ever seen.

    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.
