  1. wow the Bonnies finally played well against your Billikens.

    Hope all is well with you stay safe.

    Now that all three of Coach's sons have graduated form Olean High School, two from Bonas and the last one still attending SBU, His days at Bonas will be coming to an end when he graduates. 

    Just hoping that this team will make it to the Big Dance and maybe a Sweet-Sixteen play-off igame is in the cards.

      It’s good to hear from you. Congratulations to your Bonnies. As Rick Majerus once said (after a close SLU home court win), “The Bonnies played a helluva game.” I’ll add to Rickma: Mark Schmidt coached a helluva game.

      Good luck vs. VCU a week from today and in the NCAA Tourney.  If you can somehow get into the NCAA Tourney, go. There’s nothing like it when your team’s in it.

      As for Dayton, if SLU has a rival, the biggest left in the A10 with SLU is Dayton.

      Dayton is known by SLU fans as SVU (Sweater Vest U).

      Dayton supporters think there is a vast Jesuit conspiracy against them, Dayton being a Marianist school.

      I'm bringing my brown sweater to support the Bonnies in Brooklyn, unless the miracle happens, more so on our side, and we meet again on Sunday in the A10 Finals.

      As I probably told you, I grew up in Quincy, IL, home of the then Quincy College, now Quincy University, a fellow Franciscan school like St. Bonaventure.  The QU Hawks play in the high D-2 level Great Lakes Valley Conference.  I also grew up in St. Francis Solanus Parish, the gothic Church which is across the street from the QC (now QU) Campus, which had the Franciscan Priests/Friars.  When I was an altar server from 6th through 8th grades, the Priests were Franciscans.  The Franciscan Priests also handed out our report cards.

      I was previously told by a SLU Pep Band member that in a past A10 Tournament (I'm not sure if that is singular or plural), St. Bona asked and our SLU Pep Band allowed itself to be coopted as the St. Bona Band.  This must have been after SLU was eliminated, as usual.

      Note BAB (me) put that latest "study" of endowments and free throw percentage in blue (denotes sarcasm) and to poke some fun at the whole issue, including at myself.
