    slu72 got a reaction from Zink in O.T. Conference Shuffle ( OU and Texas inquire about joining SEC)   
    I always felt X wouldn’t want DU as a BE competitor, but there’s a day coming where AD expenses are going to come into play with the smaller conferences. And the BE is a smaller conference. They may have the prestige of the P5s, but they will never be a P5 w/o football revenues. It would make a lot of sense for them to expand in the interests of their MW members to form a 2 div conference. Adding 3 more MW schools to the mix would achieve this and allow all member schools to reduce the expenses for their non revenue sports. Adding DU, WSU, and SLU would solve these expense issues, plus give them a bigger footprint in major MW markets.

    We should align ourselves with Dayton like MU and DePaul did when they shafted us and Charlotte. If Dayton was to leave the A10, and nothing so far suggests they are, but that would hurt SLU.

    SLU v Mizzery in BB is solely a for the fans and money game. It is indeed a money making affair and should likely be held at every year at where the Blues play. That’s neutral since there are more MU alums than Billikens in STL. We’re not going to gain any recruiting advantage, and Mizzery is not going to lose one. With few exceptions the really highly touted 4 and 5 star local and MO kids have lately tended to go to the really elite BB programs. It makes no sense for either school not to play it, although, Mizzery probably doesn’t need the big payday as much as we do. 
    All that said, it makes no difference to me if they ever face off, but it is kind of foolish they don’t.

    I see nothing wrong with requiring the card or a negative test. They’ll probably go the mask route as well.

    As I understand it Okoro was at least a top 100 and why Oregon recruited him. He played hurt for part of his time there, which will impact most players’ performance. Now he’s healthy and I’m expecting we will see the top 100 version. It’s fine by me if people are sleeping on him. Same thinking goes for Nesbitt as well. I think people are forgetting he gave up his SR year of HS to jump right into D1 ball for a team crowded with 4 and 5 star players with more experience.

    Penny’s best recruit might well be Larry Brown. The guy can coach. Kudos to Penny for recognizing his X’s and O’s shortcomings and whatever other coaching skills needed upgrading. Since he’s been at Messphis he’s had talented players but that’s only one part of the equation. Brown may be the other part.

    slu72 got a reaction from billiken_roy in TV for 2021-22 season   
    Annual survey for us out of towners as to how best to get the maximum in broadcast games. 
    Last year I had the Uverse package that offers FOXMW, espn+, and the normal package of sports networks, ie CBS, NBC, and ESPN channels. 
    I think I was shut out of only 2 games with above mix. 
    One question I have is does ESPN+ air our home FSMW games? Honestly, I can’t remember. This is important for me because if they do offer them, I’ll likely dump UVerse. 
    Another question is this the year FoxSports regionals going to that Bally deal? As I recall, the Bally Network is going to run like $20-25/ a month. 
    Anyways, interested to see what others are doing to max their game views.

    I'd prefer a transfer big. Anthony didn't do much for us except eat space, but at least he knew which end of the court our basket was. I'd hate to see us get stuck with an in experienced project big FR in the event of an injury or a covid situation.  I was hoping Jimmy Bell would stick but understand his reasons for his departure. I'd guess if we don't get what we're after Strickland and Lorentsson would be Ford's backup plan.

    What concerns me about the new rules is P5 teams will reduce the number of HS recruits, which, on the surface, appears to be a plus for mids. However, if a mid lands a kid who would have sat on the bench his FR year at a P5 and gets minutes with the mid and does well, the portal allows the P5 to come after him. So, in effect, the Mid Majors become a minor league for the Majors.

    Not to be a cynic, but we should wait and see on Okoro whether he’s a Bess. Here’s hoping he is.
