  1. I'd take another Round Mound of Rebound ....
  2. This guy must be a backup plan. Classes start in what?, 4 or 5 weeks? Got to believe something has to break soon. Two scholarships still open ....
  3. Think I'm right on this. If Malik qualified out of high school he can transfer to D1 and play immediately. So with covid waiver, 4 years eligibility.
  4. But a different kind of 3rd big my be a better fit, maybe an athletic 4 that can guard the other team's 4 or 3? Jimmy is good as a center, but mobility and quickness has been a problem at times especially on D. And what team needs to be 3 deep in centers but short on the power 4 spot?
  5. He's going JC, not D1. So don't think a year sit out is required.
  6. Transfer portal closed right. Seems JC because Bell made a late decision to me. Or could Ford be "farming" him out a year to get him PT and development? If Jimmy really loves being at SLU is that a possibility?
  7. His team was playing in a baseball stadium. I would have left too. On the other hand, the NFL is dead to me.
  8. Been to SLU - Mizzou games when Mizzou was clearly the better program. And each and every of those games were tight, competitive, fantastic games. Imagine the rivelry now that SLU is arguably the better of the two programs? And the revenue boost BOTH programs would see would be substantial. Too bad for the narrow minded people who keep this game from happening annually. A netral site game in St. Louis then KC would be an ESPN game and a full house in near 20,000 seat stadiums. And Thames. Good pickup for SLU, loss for Mizzou. And if Kellen can play effectively as the point guard of the future then he immediately becomes an incredible pick-up.
  9. Question. I see Thames has offers from three reasonably high profile schools ..... Mizzary, Georgetown, SLU. SEMO also offered. Given the profile of three of his four offers, why do I not see other offers on the recruiting sites? And why is he not rated? Certainly he has the pedigree, son of a D1 star. He has size and athleticism. He plays for a high profile AAU team. What am a I missing?
  10. Cycled 5,150 miles last year. Wear bright T-shirt or tank top if hot, a bright hoodie if cold. None of that fancy bike crap clothing for me.
  11. So, will be interesting how many scholarships SLU has to fill this year. Three for sure, but maybe five? If Linnsen is going for an MBA or Masters he ought to finish this year. I can see him leaving after the season if he wants to try going pro in Europe. Williams has what, one or two years of eligibility? This extra covid year really throws who is staying or leaving up in the air. I see a big and a point guard as must positions to get commits in 2022. Then either Hughes or Thames as the third. So if Kramer commits, that makes four. His committing tells me there are likely at least four spots minimum available. Would be curious how others see this year's recruiting landscape for the Bills.
  12. That is a high school length 3 point shot in the video clip. Well short of the NBA length.
  13. NBA, hate their game, so boring and predictable. Tatum, liked his Dad, he was a nice Billiken player. His kid, never seen him play since he didn't play for the Bills ..... and now plays in the NBA.
  14. Assists show he can pass, but can he facilitate breaking a press with minimal turnovers?
  15. Like him a lot. But SLU seems to be in need of a backup PG. And both Verge and Williams are described similarly, ball dominate shooting guards.
