    Recruiting - 2019

    I keep seeing this about Jacobs and playing time. Is he not still injured? I assumed his lack of PT was due to recovery. I thought he was getting a fair amount of PT given the lack of contribution prior to the injury.

    This is awesome. I don't know how I never heard of this....I didn't think I'd missed a post on the Billikenboard since I found it in '01. I fully support making this "a thing".

    Carte'Are Gordon Rumored to Transfer

    Yeah, that's what I don't get. He's basically put up Crew's like numbers the past few years. Now he has a monster recruiting class and the tide is turning? This whole thing is weird.

    GDT: UMASS be shite-ing me .........

    Yeah, it really looked like he was falling back and swung his arm up to catch his balance. In slow motion, I didn't get the impression he was trying to swat at Goodwin's face.

    @ACE - are we using "bad posts" now when we have a different opinion? What is it that you took so much issue with to label it a "bad post" among a sea of differing opinions?

    I did watch the last game (and every game I could get access to over the past 20 years). It was trending up. Similiarly, I assume you watched the rest of the games with a $hitty offense and no ball movement. Not trying to say anything negative about our players, but my view in Nashville has not always been positive relative to the impact our grad transfer had on the team. Perhaps it was more about our departed player than originally thought. No need for the bold. I've been very transparent that I don't have inside information and rely on internet media/message boards to form opinions. If you have "inside" information, please share.

    I'm no insider, so you can take this with a grain of salt. However, it's been discussed many times on the board that Isabell may be playing selfishly and it is no secret he has professional aspirations. Additionally, there is no denying that we are lacking on the court chemistry across the board (hence our lack of ball movement and fluid offense). It has also been discussed quite a bit that Gordon caused chemistry issues that had bad results on the court. In my opinion, a grad transfer who thinks he's a star could cause issues on a team that has an all conference big already (hopefully) and enough talent in the backcourt to make a run.

    I somewhat agree. I'd like to get a guy like Anthony. Not a 23 year old with NBA aspirations, but a big body who can play D and get rebounds. Somebody looking to experience March Madness and happy to leave SLU with a masters degree. Anybody coming in with the NBA in his sights will throw off the leadership paradigm and have a greater tendency to play selfishly, IMO.

    2018-19 season

    This. My strategy as an opposing coach would be to go as hard as possible at French to start the game and get him on the bench with 2 fouls. I like Foreman, but he isn't the presence French or Gordon is on either side of the ball. I forsee French being told to reduce the shot blocking attempts to keep from fouling, but that will minimize his presence and overall effectiveness. Fouls will be a major problem the rest of the season, IMO.

    Carte'Are Gordon Rumored to Transfer

    I don't think this is over yet, but that he will ultimately be gone after a valiant effort. If (and a BIG if) the things we have been reading are true, there has been a lot of damage done that needs to be repaired to stand a chance. I'm wondering if his buddies tweet about needing to "GROW" was more aimed at Gordon, telling him to GROW up. Kind of a stretch, but trying to start the day off on a good note.

    Man, what a blow. I really just need to stop following this and instead let my wife kick me in the nuts a few times every November. At least the pain would be over quickly....

    Carte'Are Gordon Rumored to Transfer

    Coach has repeatedly stated "we will need [insert name here]'s help come conference play". I took Hankton's appearance to give him some PT against a weak opponent and to just try and change things up. Personally, I was more concerned with the lack of starting. Some people could take that an an insult and based SOLEY on MBM's claim that Gordon can be immature, got me thinking there could be a problem. Still hoping this is just some sort of joke/attention seeking moment...

    After a lackluster morning, I just got back from lunch telling myself I was going to be productive and knock out some work. Not happening now. Slowly creeping into Billiken depression mode while clicking refresh every 6 seconds...

    GDT Rename them the Slukies

    I don't think it is fair to dump all this on Isabell. I saw a lot of crappy play last night by most of the team. I feel like Isabell has had more good passes than Goodwin this year, but admittedly not doing a great job at the point. The offense just sucks, period. It's like I'm watching the same crap I have been watching for 20 years. Great on defense, suck on offense....but we have exponentially more talent. I absolutely place some of the blame on the coach....but it is on all the players as well....plenty of open shots missed. They can't seem to execute anything. And free throws??? We hit them at a decent clip and we win the game. Whatever is going on needs to stop. There is a lot of mind games going on out there when a guy like Goodwin can't hit the broad side of the barn from the free throw line.We have world class defense. Top notch talent. Can't make a bucket even if we aren't being guarded. I still feel this is going to come together, but it sure is frustrating right now.
