  1. Just accept their statements, they don't know and are running tests. The fact he wasn't at Birmingham should tell everyone it is not a little issue, in my opinion. Maybe he was kept in St. Louis for finals, but I doubt it.
  2. I just hope we don't lose Katie Shields, she's done a terrific job, and bigger schools are going to consider her.
  3. For junkies like myself, it is a steal. Best $5 a month I spend. Rewatched our FGCU game at 3:30 this morning using their search option. Picture quality is good.
  4. Totally agree with this. This will help, as if they need any assistance, big time schools. The Kansas' of the world, who are already arranging benefits for their players, will go to their alumni, supporters and vendors and "encourage" them to find ways to support their players. It' s really no different than giving an athlete a summer job, that doesn't require any work, and paying them some crazy amount of money. Once one school starts it, the others will follow suit. In the tapes catching Self at KU, he told his shoe company that he had to pay a certain player to keep up with the Kentucky, Dukes and Arizona's of the world. This will be the same.
  5. Not that I know anything, but he does plan on playing full court for 40 minutes. Could change, but that’s the plan. Heard SLU pressed 40 minutes against Loyola and wore them out. I’m guessing we’ll drop back after pressing and play a zone a fair amount. It will help protect Has. We don’t have to always press full court. He obviously likes the half court trap. A question, do I remember Correctly that the rule changed regarding the 10 second count not restarting when the ball goes out or a timeout is called? If so, more teams will press.
  6. I think the shooting will be better than Saturday showed. They practiced 3 hours Friday late afternoon. And, they are at the end of a long month. Unlike Majerus, Ford will cut back to restore their legs. By the way, they practiced again Saturday afternoon, after the women played Illinois in their closed scrimmage.
  7. Match tonight against Eastern Illinois
  8. I received miine a few days ago.
  9. I saw Coach Ford last night, and he indicated he’s just starting to think about it.
  10. That's not correct, freshman and transfers can go.
  11. Many of you may know that the annual golf tournament is on Tuesday, May 7 at St. Albans Country Club. I think a few spots are still available. It's always a fun day, with plenty of opportunities to interact with coaches and players. They all really appreciate everyone's support. If you are interested, there is a silent auction that is going on until noon on Monday. It's a great way to support Billiken athletics. Plus, there are usually some real steals on unique items. Please check it out, bid on some items and help our favorite athletic program continue to improve. The link to access the auction is below (if I did it correctly) https://www.32auctions.com/organizations/31922/auctions/64761?t=all
