I have reached billiken_roy levels of posting (7/7)

  1. The first segment of this one is a nice companion piece to the Hughes interview. Things we didn't get to on our list, things we were surprised by, things we decided not to ask, possibly bringing up some lingering feud with Nelly, etc.
  2. This was a special one for me. Started watching him play when I was a kid. Thanks everybody who has checked it out so far.
  3. For real, though, how do these fit when you have washboard abs and are used to sleeves ripping when you wear a medium?
  4. This is true, but they also don't shrink much (if at all), if that helps anyone.
  5. I mean, "down the street" is nice but there are plenty of other programs located very close to MLS teams. Xavier and NKU are both within 15 minutes of FC Cincinnati, to use my local example. Is there a formal partnership between STL City and SLU?
  6. Darius could be in some trouble. He's one of the 18, along with some other recognizable names shared in the thread below that tweet.
  7. The women's team landed two solid commitments on Monday. Nicastro is from St. Charles West and is a 2022 wing. Donarski is a 2023 PG from Wisconsin. Getting an early commitment seems key in that one.
  8. It would also help to find a make-up date for Central Arkansas (RPI 17). There were some early good results for the conference, like Davidson beating High Point to start the year, but some of those other teams that got some votes in the poll have since come back down to earth. Fordham was even ranked in the first Top Drawer Soccer poll but had two blowout results against ranked teams to start the year. Rhode Island is probably the third best team in the league, and that's the last regular season game. That would be a quality win, too (45 RPI). It would be nice for the NCAA to switch over to this year's RPI rankings, by the way.
  9. Zyree Collins - PG, - St. Louis, MO (St. Mary's) - AAU: Brad Beal Elite (Nike EYBL) - Twitter: @zyree314 Offers: Saint Louis. Interest: Oklahoma, Southeast Missouri. Latest News: Collins received an offer from SLU. (10/6/21) Scouting Report: Collins is a skilled point guard who plays like he's older than he is. He's an excellent playmaker with high-level passing ability and outstanding vision. He scores on three levels and is shifty getting to the basket, able to change speeds and get around larger defenders, finishing with either hand. He can also has deep range on his shot. He's the younger brother of SLU PG Yuri Collins. Aaron Rowe - PG, 6-0, 145 - Columbia, MO (Father Tolton) - AAU: MOKAN Elite (Nike EYBL) - Twitter: @a_rowe_3 Offers: Saint Louis, Tennessee, Missouri State. Interest: Texas A&M, Missouri, Loyola-Chicago, Drake, Illinois State, Southeast Missouri, SIU-Edwardsville. Latest News: Rowe received offers from SLU and Tennessee. (10/6/21) Scouting Report: Rowe is a very skilled, athletic point guard with a complete game. He's extremely quick and moves in traffic and in the open court. He scores on three levels. He's got long arms and finishes everything, also manages to be disruptive on defense. He's a deft passer and has great handles. He's an elite athlete and also plays with smarts well beyond his years. He also has an incredible work ethic.
  10. Yep, thanks. Also signed up for American Outlaws, which gave me another round in the lottery. $30 and it came with a shirt and American flag bandana, as if I didn't already have a dozen of those around. I went to the USWNT-Paraguay match here a couple weeks ago, which obviously wasn't much of a game but made it clear that this is going to be a great venue for the Mexico game. I like the idea of playing in these smaller, soccer-specific stadiums for important qualifiers. Without a national stadium, we don't have that home field advantage. The playing surfaces in the recent games played in NFL stadiums have been garbage, too. Only downside is SLU plays EIU that night. Given the late start time of the USMNT-Mexico game (9:10 pm), I still might be able to catch some of it, though.
  11. The lottery was super confusing for Cincy tickets, as well. I didn't get picked but 3/4 of the other guys in our group trying won, so we have a total of 10 seats for the 11/12 game. Looks like we're using 8 and selling 2 at this point.
  12. I was in rural Vermont for a few days so I'm out of the loop on most things, but that was brought to my attention. The main point I'll make is that having interest and making contact are not the same thing and Bol is a 2024 recruit. All contact has to go through his coach and/or legal guardian, which in this case is Wilson. Bol has gone from relative unknown to nationally recruited player in a very short amount of time. There was a ton of uncertainty around his future when STLCA folded. Hopefully he continues to stay in STL and at CBC - for a big-time prospect without deep roots here, there's going to be no shortage of prep school poachers swirling. I'm not concerned about SLU's approach to his recruitment at this point.
  13. Agreed. 14 is already big and conferences don't kick teams out. No point in adding unless we're adding to the top half. Things can always change but we're still in the best place for us right now.
