  1. Anyone know why we switched from playing more of a packed in defense most of the 1st half to a more aggressive man in the 2nd half? Packing it in seemed like the game plan against UMass as they have struggled to shoot the 3 in conference play and it seemed to really bog down their offense as they struggled to find open looks and room for Mitchell. When we started playing more aggressively and extending our defense they were seemingly able to break us down off of the dribble with ease. I thought we learned from the 1st game when I saw us come out in a more packed in defense, but then we abandoned it. Oh well, these games don't overly matter at this point.
  2. Jaycob Tatum is a sophomore and has played in 1 game recording 3 points and 1 rebound. I have never heard his name, so I assume he is not a prospect.
  3. This was the case I was on. Interesting process, I was on a jury with the guy who helps run the SLU chess program. https://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/maplewood-carjacker-leaves-behind-big-clue-for-police/article_2c7338c3-f62c-51c7-8ad8-cd94bd008df1.html
  4. I postponed last winter and moved it to the week before Christmas thinking the chances of being on a trial would be slim since everyone would be gearing up for the holidays. Within the first hour I am part of the jury selection process. I was fairly far down the line, so I figured there would be no chance I would get selected. Well, I ended up being selected. The trial and deliberation took us past midnight on Thursday, so it was a long and rather brutal week. The case itself was an armed robbery, but we could not reach a verdict, so it was a mistrial. I think the guy has another jury trial coming up this spring, so I will be interested to see what a new jury decides.
  5. I have so many questions about that school. But you are right, a kid from Dallas who transfers to Prolific Prep in Napa, California then to St. Louis Christian and comes out with a short list which includes LSU and Arizona certainly raises some questions. Again, all of these things could very well be on the up and up, just raises some questions. That said, the kid looks legit.
  6. Am I the only one that sees Arizona and LSU on a kid's short list and thinks nefarious things?
  7. This Rhode Island at Dayton game this evening should be a good watch. I am seeing a 6:30 game time on CBSSN. Dayton is listed as an 11 point favorite.
  8. The other one that really stood out (and I am not sure which half this was because I have gotten up to about the final 6 minutes of the game) was a foul called on Yuri where he was clipped on a screen and fell down and he was called for the foul. I remember us being baffled at the game, but thinking we must have missed something and on tv it was just as confusing. It has been interesting watching the recording of the game because seemingly every call we questioned and didn't look right from where we were sitting in the crows nest were just as questionable on tv, we just did not get the benefit of the whistle at all. One thing that I noticed watching the game was how much louder the game sounded on tv than I remembered it. Maybe sitting way up there in the ceiling you don't get the full noise from the crowd? I thought the stadium was nice, but it is certainly no Chaifetz. Also, it continues to amaze me how we miss shots at the rim that almost look impossible for a college basketball player to miss. I assume based on %s that is going to continue, but man it would be nice if we just finished the two foot putts.
  9. It has been decided! Bandwagon St. Louis Chief fans, jump on board (I was going to say the Billiken train, but I don't want to trigger anyone on this board)!
  10. I missed the discussion, are we talking about Jordan Goodwin getting drafted or like a Blake Ahearn type NBA career?
  11. Has to be because of fear of litigation, right? Regardless, when I got the email from my client that non essential employees were asked to work from home I was all over that. Not only am I non essential as f, but I am also a drunk and if you are going to give me the option of extra time to get properly lubricated for tonight's game, hell yeah I am going to take it.
  12. We really should have a place like Lorenzini's just for us MBMs. Chris May shakes hands at Lorenzini's and then briskly walks past the MBM Club as a few middle aged men are screaming at each other despite both having incredible passion for the same program.
  13. This year will be my first time back to see us take on the Flyers in Dayton since New Year's Eve 2003. It was a memorable trip for a number of reasons, but I will never forget seeing a male cheerleader drop a girl and seeing her fall about 6.5 feet and bounce off of the floor. And since I am a terrible person instead of reacting to help the cheerleader who had just fallen I turned my head and broke out in laughter. Welp, we all have stories, looking forward to creating some more memories a few weeks from now.
  14. I think you mentioned moving seats this year, how are you liking your new spot? Since I barely hit the millennial generation, I stayed home to work once I saw the forecast. But I am wearing a Billiken shirt, just my dog is the only one seeing that.
  15. Mizzou was never a good fit for him. He is a supreme run and jump athlete that needs to play in a system that allows him to do just that. So that 40 minutes of hell style would certainly make sense. Let him be that and hope the rest of his game rounds out, but at the very least he can be productive in that type of system.
  16. Nevada. His college career really ended oddly, certainly hope things end up well for him.
  17. Coach Ford would likely have a pretty good idea whether Mario would be worth taking a look at beyond pure basketball ability with his son playing for mizzou. Not being the biggest fan of Mario as a player, I will trust the coaching staff on their decision in pursuing or not pursuing Mario since it would certainly be well informed.
  18. I was really curious what the story is with regards to McCarty, this is so classic.
  19. This Haney kid is intriguing to me as is his summer teammate Anton Brookshire. Have you seen Brookshire play? It looks like Dora has played some decent competition this season, so there should be some solid "film" of him for coaches to better evaluate and determine his fit at the next level.
  20. He might as well just go ahead and commit to the good guys! I would love a class the included two local guys in Hughes and Tarris Reed.
  21. What did I miss? Did someone give us an idea as to what is going on with Thatch?
  22. This might be my chance to redeem myself after the embarrassment of really screwing up the delivery of the bag to Kasubke. Since nobody can verify otherwise I will just say that Kelvin and I are essentially best friends just maybe not quite known by him. Regardless, I did know Kelvin well, so I will see what I can do and I don't think there is any way this goes poorly. I assume there are no recruiting restrictions on MBMs? The coaches will be really excited to hear that they have a real idiot deciding to enter into the recruiting process on their behalf.
