    Recruiting - 2019

    I would have thought that Jimmy Bell was going to be more of a gym rat and a little less athletic.

    The NIT

    You don't turn down an NIT bid. SLU isn't getting an NIT bid unless they somehow win the regular season but don't win the conference tournament. It is kind of a moot point. You do turn down CBI, CIT, etc because they are worthless tournaments with low level programs and would cost the athletic department significant money.

    OT: Midtown Development

    The single stall bathroom in the back left was my favorite to partake in extracurricular activities.

    OT: Midtown Development

    Great post. I was hopeful that the strategy was just Biondi trying to buy up all things around the campus, but it appears it is continuing under Weak Fred. No bars around campus just means more of the student body is driving around St. Louis drunk. It doesn't curb any sort of drinking activities. And, as you said, it lessens the community feeling. A lot of my favorite memories from SLU were set at Humphrey's, Laclede Street, or the various iterations of Freddy's. Nights in Soulard were fun, but it didn't have the same feel.

    This board really needs someone that can produce parody songs.

    Post Dispatch

    The report basically says the punishments were different because SPUMAC owned up to the infractions and UNC didn’t. Classic NCAA.

    OT: Ford’s seat getting warm

    Travis Ford's seat isn't warm. Get serious. However, Oklahoma State fans felt the same way. We were lulled into a sense of okay-ness with the first few years the team being better than expected. Expectations those years were tempered by the Katherine Weathers Situation and an overall lack of talent year 1. This team isn't a tournament team. This team has very little chance of winning 3 in a row in the A10 tournament. The roster is flawed and was flawed even before the Santos and Gordon departures. Good big men are great, but if you have a team that can't shoot the ball the opponents can just pack it in and stop that pretty easily. It would appear Ford has addressed the glaring weakness - offense - with the Perkins and Jimmerson signings for next year. Perkins should be expected to be a starter Day 3. Jimmerson a key role player that can open things up.

    Yeah but combining government isn't going to suddenly make poor black people move to Clayton?

    I bet the City is just preparing the tanks to roll westward as we speak. Premier Krewson will soon turn the rivers red with the blood of the infidels. I don't get why any good conservative would be against this. It would dilute the power of a democratic city. It would reduce the size of government. It would be good for the entire area from a development, tax, business friendly, and many other standpoints. What is the drawback? Besides not running into a dozen mayors of 8,000 populace "cities" on your way to buy a pack of smokes?

    2018-19 season

    SLU currently has the 6th worst transition field goal percentage in the country, out of 353 teams. Of course the overall effective field goal percentage this year is somewhere in the bottom 25 teams in the country, so maybe it is a pick your poison. http://hoop-math.com/leader_o2019.php

    Signed Recruit Thread 2018-19

    Creighton's athletic department as a whole is miles in front of SLU. Their facilities are some of the best in the land - SLU has Chaifetz and junk. Their athletic director is one of the most well connected in the land - Chris May just isn't a good athletic director. At the time their mens basketball was dominating the MVC and they had a long term coach in place - SLU was making tournaments but didn't have the track record/Majerus just died. Their President was better than Biondi. That is the nutshell version.
