    2019 SLU Baseball

    Forgot to update yesterday. Bills split their doubleheader: 3-2 loss and 10-3 win. Didn’t have time to watch so no player updates.

    Good start to game #1. 8-1 good guys in the 7th. Luther pitched 6.

    2019 SLU Baseball

    Good luck to the baseball team as they kick off their 2019 season tonight (4pm) at Miami (OH). Bills were picked to win the A10 this year. On a sour note, the ladies softball team began last weekend going 0-5 while being out scored 40-5 over the five games. Nowhere to go but up!

    OT: Ford’s seat getting warm

    "Give him another year or two"? No disrespect, but there shouldn't be any talk of how long we give him at this moment. Yeah, losing players at the rate we have the past few years is concerning. But look where we were before him. If you get rid of Travis, who are you honestly getting? Not someone better. It's only been three years. There can't be a short leash. Unless you want a Crews/Soderberg level coach. Not to mention if you fire Travis, you'll likely lose his great incoming recruiting class. As fans, obviously we want a 'win now' team. But we can be so short-sided at times. Barring a controversy surrounding Ford; or a Situation4, he's staying as long as he wants. Be happy about that.

    The Bills over GW by 8

    With you on where to put it. I posted this below the one in the GD thread too. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Anthony Bonner and Aaron Hines returned to the court today to add bodies at SLU practice.</p>&mdash; stu durando (@studurando) <a href="https://twitter.com/studurando/status/1095067061859090435?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">February 11, 2019</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

    Radford? Rutgers? Bowling Green?

    Good calls on the flicks. But in this rare instance, I would be inclined to say Toy Story 3 over the original. Hardly any movie gets the waterworks moving than the end of that one. "So long partner".

    Recruiting - 2019

    Not sure if this has been posted, but on Feb 1, there was a report that Welmer is retiring following the season. Look, it doesn't name sources, and I'm not sure of the credibility of this account. But they even have a write up about it. https://www.rotowire.com/cbasketball/player.php?id=6582 I don't think any of us expected him to play again; but if true, this can close the book on his scholarship for next year at least. I want whats best for Elliott's health long-term. But I would love to see him be able to take the court on Senior Night for one play and ideally get to take a shot.

    GDT: RI round 2 fight night

    Yet everyone will be happy when he drops 15+. Look, he's not what we were expecting; but can we stop hating on this guy? My god. Everyone was excited when we got him; but so quick to persecute him because he isn't a 20/10 guy.

    GDT: RI round 2 fight night

    Bing! its almost like it’s Groundhog Day.
  11. philliken

    Almost....

    From the ESPN recap: "NC State came up shy of scoring the fewest points by any team in the shot clock era, as George Washington scored just 20 in a game against Saint Louis in 2008, according to ESPN Stats & Information." I don't think I feel like correcting them on this one.

    Richmond from da' Couch ......

    Thank you. I agree. That team was great, and got into the #10 in National Rankings. That being said, in those three years we never even reached the second weekend. Great team? Yes! Perennial Final 4 contender? No.

    GDT: vs The SPAHderrrs

    Remember that scene in Pleasantville when the players couldn’t miss a shot? yeah, Richmond is the opposite of that in shootaround. i understand it’s just shootaround, but they do not look like a team that should contend with us. That being said, it’ll probably be a close game in the last five minutes. maybe it’s the Chaifetz Happy Hour beer talking, but I’m predicting Bills by 15, and JGood gets his 2nd career triple double for his redemption. 12,11,10.

    GDT: vs The SPAHderrrs

    Agreed on attendance. Last game we had ~9,400. I'm guessing less than 6.5K today. We're only using 2 of our 6 tickets. I normally have zero trouble getting my friends to go, or my kids friends to tag along.
