  1. Having not watched him jump, I'm speculating. What Sheltie says is correct. The only thing I'd say is 6-8 inches is possibly too high. He's not going to improve his jump height, just better form clearing the bar at a height he is currently jumping. My guess is with ~3 attempts at a height, he's managed to get his form just right to get that high. What did his mom say he cleared in practice? 7'2"? That's while being coached, and unlimited attempts. Although any jumper will tell you, after 20 or so jumps, your legs are about done without some decent rest. So if he stuck with it, I'd say 2-4 inches is likely; that 6-8 possible.
  2. I’m also a former HS jumper. I was prob 6’1” when I jumped. I missed out on state by a tie-breaker (same height -less misses) and it was significantly lower. My best jump was 5’10” and I only did that in regionals. That guy who beat me finished second at state. Point being, what he did is stupid impressive.
  3. In Cabo where game starts at 10. Only place open with a tv at 10 is the swim up bar. With zero hesitation, I’m bearing the 63 degree temps and cold water for our boys. Suggestions after the obligatory Bloody Mary?
  4. If anyone has any you're not using for Saturday, please DM me. We have 6, but trying to get more so our whole families can go to a game together. Thanks!
  5. 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.
  6. Good start to game #1. 8-1 good guys in the 7th. Luther pitched 6.
  7. 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!
  8. "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.
  9. 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>
  10. This too. https://twitter.com/studurando/status/1095067061859090435 <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>
  11. 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".
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Bing! its almost like it’s Groundhog Day.
