    Good recruiter, bad coach?

    Supposedly SIU-C is a decent defensive team with experience. They look the-art tonight. On the road with our best player on a hobbled ankle. Sucks to lose but not that terrible of a loss. Effective In game adjustments are lacking from many head coaches. That was on of my favorite things about RM.

    Travis Ford On 590

    Those smaller shorts TF likes so much sure were noticeable at the Quincy game.

    Many of the players shorts were a bit more fitted. Must be the new style rather than long and baggy. Speaking of uniforms, why do men's NCAA teams wear whatever color shoes the player wants but women's teams all wear the same color shoe????? This applies to Billiken teams in addition to others.

    Jontay Porter Out For The Season

    Circling back to include link to story. Want to make sure people don't think this is fake news. https://www.stltoday.com/sports/college/mizzou/four-star-forward-tray-jackson-commits-to-mizzou/article_5d6a7957-305e-5f41-b53e-3df93e6f4a9d.html

    Jontay Porter Out For The Season

    Too bad for Jontay. Sucks for him but I feel no empathy for MU basketball fans. When I read thua quote a few days ago I thought about posting an OT thread here but decided against it because I am excited about our season and didn't even want to mention MU. With this thread I will include it. We have all talked about it here but I found it funny Dave Matter included this in his recent article on MU's newest recruit. Who will be next Cuonzo flip........ Commitment flips have been Cuonzo Martin’s specialty since he came to Missouri last year. Jackson is the seventh recruit who has picked Mizzou after being committed to play elsewhere since the spring of 2017, following Michael Porter Jr., Jontay Porter and Blake Harris (all pledged to Washington), Jeremiah Tilmon and Javon Pickett (both signed to play at Illinois) and Torrence Watson (Ohio State).
  6. Totally off topic but I am always interested in anyone with Jet in their name. Either one t or two works since they sound the same. Pretty cool story. I am a fan of this Jett now (except when he plays against the Blues). Larry Woo faced racism in the hockey rink. For his NHL-drafted son, it's a different story.

    Recruiting - 2019

    Don't remember too much about his Billiken basketball career but I think he was a pretty good left handed pitcher on the baseball team for a season or two.

    Maybe someone in the Athletic Department should ask the NCAA to update the Billiken logo on their website. Let me guess, marketing department responsibility............ https://www.ncaa.com/interactive-bracket/baseball/d1
  10. Good article even though no mention of SLU. There were a few spots in the article SLU could have easily been included / referenced. NY Times - Why Catholic Colleges Excel at Basketball

    Andre Craig Appreciation Thread

    He does a good job. I wish he had a better quality PA system to work with.
  14. It gives me satisfaction to see this thread. My buddies and I have been annoyed with this same thing. Get rid of the # in front of each number! Also, with the team putting an emphasis on rebounds (even handing out a rebound chain), they should add rebounds to the video board stats. They could condense the existing columns and add rebounds.. # for player, P for points, R for rebound and F for fouls. Do it!
