  1. If you want a name to have “St. Louis inside joke” potential, while also looking outwardly legitimate, this should be the name.
  2. Yes. We want to sound like a legitimate organization, not a rec league team. A name like Archers skews towards the rec league category and makes us look less legitimate in my opinion.
  3. I like this one, though I probably go with Olympic/Olympique St. Louis.
  4. I don’t like it because I think it’s cheesy and forced. Plus, I thought it was lame when somebody suggested that name for a team over 25 years ago in an issue of Sports Illustrated for Kids. If I as a somewhat dorky 8 or 9 year old could figure out that it was lame, you know it’s bad.
  5. I’m mixed on the team name. I watch soccer in Europe, so used to names including FC, United, etc. That said, those names in my opinion are better suited for teams that have been around for a long time. Naming a new team FC, United is a little odd to me. At the same time, my general opinion is that most American teams created in the last 30 years have had stupid names, in large part due to the names being created by people looking at it from a branding or marketing perspective. My pick is St. Louis Rovers. Sounds like a team in England, without the focus being on FC or United. I’d be ok with bringing back a name like the Steamers. My guess is they’ll try to call it St. Louis United.
  6. Yeah, I have the DirecTV Choice package, but have had it for a few years, so they won’t give me the promo pricing. Tried to suggest that I’d drop it and switch to streaming once the new internet got installed, but no response. Very curious about the AT&T TV option, so will see what the word is there.
  7. I don’t have much detail on this, but when I was at the AT&T store the other day finding out my house is finally eligible for faster internet, I was told that AT&T is releasing a new streaming service soon in several markets, STL being one of them. I think the guy said announcement or release this Saturday. From what I read, it’s called AT&T TV, not to be confused with DirecTV Now/AT&T TV Now. It’s somethi different. Speculation is that it is intended to be a less expensive eventual replacement to DirecTV, without a dish, which will cut down on maintenance costs. I figure that I’ll see how that looks and then likely try that or YouTube TV or Hulu Live TV.
  8. is it Perkins in the second photo?
  9. he wasn’t coming to SLU, but we discussed him this thread.
  10. Am I correct that we currently have 2 available scholarships for this class? Thoughts on a pair of Bradford and Kasubke/Branson?
  11. I am thankful to him for the 2012-13 season. The team may have coached itself on the court that year, but I’m confident that he did something to help those kids cope with the loss of Majerus. With that said, you can have gratitude to him for that part of his tenure, while also not being willing to forget about the abomination that was his tenure as coach for his last 2 years. That guy had a team ranked in the Top 10, and 1-2 years later they might not have been in the Top 200. For most of my life, I look forward to every SLU game. In his last year, I viewed going to games as a chore and sometimes didn’t care enough to watch road games. It was absolutely terrible, and I’m not over it yet. Making the NCAAs last season was so special to me because it meant that Jim Crews hadn’t actually killed our program, as I had once feared.
  12. Is this the week/weekend that Nike has that camp on campus and Ford offers just about everyone who attends?
  13. Lock this thread. We’re out of consideration, and this thread shouldn’t have been started to begin with.
  14. I’ve bought their sampler (Spotted Cow, Moon Man, Totally Naked, and Two Women) before, and it’s good. Spotted Cow is still the go-to.
