  1. I'm surprised it wasn't number 46 and/or 2.
  2. I am currently in Rome with the wife and I can confirm that Ford was at the Trevi Fountain last night having grappa and gelato with an Italian big. Ford had mango gelato and the recruit had pistachio. People kept calling him 'La Grande Lasagna.' Only part of this is true.
  3. I wouldn't be happy at all if Ford had Martelli-esque results here. St Joes is a little over half the size of SLU. They've made some nice upgrades to their campus recently, and are located in a really good area right off the Main Line in Philly. But their facilities aren't comparable to ours...and it's really not close. No Med School. No Law School. Hagan Arena isn't great. For the most part, our expectations shouldn't be aligned with Regional schools. Martelli was great for St. Joes. Going to the Tourney once every 3.5 years is outstanding for them. I think our goal needs to be the NCAA Tournament 3 out of 5 years, or at least 5 times every decade. If Xavier did it (a rare exception for regional private schools), so can we. Up until they took off in 2000, X was hovering at about 5 out of 10 years in the Tourney. That is a realistic expectation to have for a school like SLU in my opinion.
  4. Are you guys serious? Maybe I'm crazy, but I don't see a scenario where Lewis gets under 25 minutes per game. We were absolutely atrocious on the offensive end last year. And that was WITH Isabell and Bess. Lewis is a proven offensive weapon at this level and has ~75 games under his belt. Freshmen are still freshmen. And Thatch has a long way to go to be an offensive threat.
  5. Lewis averaged 14 a game in the A-10 as a Freshman. There's no conversion from a lower conference or a Power 5 role player. He has A-10 experience. That's huge in my opinion. Takes a lot of the guesswork out of the equation. The team dynamic and offensive scheme will be different, but we know he can contribute (and thrive) at this level.
  6. Europe is the size of the Eastwood Mall....we can WALK to Berlin from there.
  7. These unforced of barely unforced turnovers are f***** infuriating
  8. I just want us to make it a decent game. Outscore, outplay, and outhustle them THIS half.
  9. "Hey guys, how about this half we MAKE some shots."
