  1. Sekeue Barentine was good at 2 things: -busting his ass down the floor for the occasional easy bucket -inducing lane violations with his quadruple clutch FT attempts
  2. Add Oral Roberts to the ever growing list of 80s era MCC teams that have advanced to the Sweet 16 ahead of SLU. Best finish in parentheses. Xavier (2x Elite Eight) Marquette (Final 4) Butler (2x National Runner up) Dayton (Elite Eight) Loyola (Final Four) Oral Roberts
  3. The casino story was a smokescreen. There were reports from individuals that Carlos Martinez was at the Wheelhouse right before they got shut down the first time for not following protocols - and this was before anyone knew who tested positive or how much it would derail the season. Wainwright was out there in PR mode dismissing the casino story - but nobody in the media ever really dug into Carlos Martinez (and others?) clubbing activities leading to the team getting infected. Don't blame Gardner for having the audacity to call attention to it after we've never been given an adequat
  4. I thought I qualified my statement but reading comprehension is hard I guess. I'm not holding the first 2 years against Ford, just stating a fact that in 5 years not once has he had the team in a good spot for an at large bid.
  5. They were not in line for an at-large bid in 19-20 before the pandemic hit. I like Ford and he's had to endure a lot of BS that's out of his control. The program/roster is in a good spot heading into next year. That said, his record is what it is. He's 0 for 5 having his team in a good spot to earn an at large bid.
  6. Ford is a good fit for the program and the program is a good fit for him. If/when he starts making deep NCAA runs, there will naturally be suitors from the power conferences, but he's been there and he knows how tough it is to meet the expectations year in year out. He also knows he'll basically have a job for life here should he have that kind of success. He may one day leave but it would take a dream job opportunity. We should appreciate him, not take him for granted, but also not lose sleep over rumors/chatter about him moving/leaving.
  7. Here's that list re-ordered with made FG factored in, ranked by Ratio of FG + A to Turnovers - providing a bit more context for positives (made FG and assists) vs turnovers. Player FG A TO A/TO FG/TO (FG+A)/TO Claggett 657 347 246 1.411 2.671 4.081 Waldman 189 295 120 2.458 1.575 4.033 Ellis 3
  8. 1. LaTodd Johnson, 1979-80 to 1982-83 338 2. Tommie Liddell, 2005-06 to 2008-09 317 3. Anthony Bonner, 1986-87 to 1989-90 316 4. Jordair Jett, 2010-11 to 2013-14 295 5. Kwamain Mitchell, 2008-09 to 2012-13 280 6. Monroe Douglass, 1985-86 to 1988-89 267 7. Josh Fisher, 2000-01 to 2003-04 262 8.
  9. Over the last 6 games, Goodwin is averaging 18.7 PPG, 11.2 RPG, 3.7 APG, 2.3 SPG, 2.5 TOV, 50.0% FG, 35.0% 3FG, 71.9% FT
  10. We look like a team adjusting to the difference in difficulty between Easy and Hard
  11. Are you talking about Grandy's softcore porn onlyfans or the sequence of transfers the week leading to the situation 1?
  12. Not that it matters, but I thought Justin Jordan was run off (in April) to make room for either Jett or Loe BEFORE the situation happened.
  13. Jett and Loe were out there in Spring 2010 and we didn't have room. Room was made. Scholarships are 1 year renewable. It's not pleasant but it's how the sausage is made. I guess compared to a guy doing onlyfans and showcasing his hole, it's not that dirty of a secret.
  14. I would love to be a fly on the wall next time he applies for a car loan or home mortgage. "So it appears you haven't collected a basketball related paycheck since the pandemic started, do you have any other sources of income?" Grandy: Yeah I've diversified into softcore gay porn. I'll have my accountant fax over my Onlyfans income summary.
  15. Well, Perkins did shoot 20% (11 of 55) from 3 in the first 16 D1 games last year and was 0 for 3 in that Dayton game when he went off for 25, so he was under 20% from 3 at the midpoint of the season before turning into a 52% 3 point shooter the rest of the way. Not sure if he was adjusting to the speed of D1 or if it was a mechanical issue or if he was had a nagging injury or whatever but it's a stunning transformation.
  16. Since Javonte Perkins coming out party vs Dayton last January - a span of 16 games or roughly half a season, Perkins is averaging 20.8 PPG .539 FG%, .515 3P%, .794 FT%, (1.848)
  17. That was some video game sheyat down the stretch. I mean, he show us he could do it last year, but this game was slipping away after Yuri picked up his 4th, we couldn't get stops as we badly missed French on the defensive end, but Perkins would not let us lose. Credit Jordan Goodwin for making big plays when we absolutely needed them while having a rough game overall. Great team win.
  18. Donated. Thanks for keeping it going through the years and dealing with the spikes/outages.
  19. RIP to a Billiken Legend. Condolences to his family.
  20. Guy Phillips jumped on the Spoonball bandwagon and has been tormenting us ever since with his unprofessional PA work and inflated sense of celebrity...with the exception of the occasional reprieve when he's got something more important to do (like annoy Mizzou and Illini fans at the Braggin Rights game). Give the gig to someone who will actually take it seriously and take pride in his work.
