  1. We've known for a few years now that free throws are going to cost us some games. Last night was one of those games where any individual play or stat would have changed the outcome. I understand faulting free throws because that's the one area that only we control but at this point, I'm inclined to blame other aspects. The players and coaches know that they have to be a notch better in other areas of the game and that they have to make every little play because they know we're gonna leave free points at the line. We stopped defending for a few minutes last night and that was the difference for me
  2. Why do I feel like this is one of those games where we shut down Toppin and then a guy like Crutcher drops a 30 burger on us?
  3. Goodwin's best chance at A10 POY is if we win the conference regular season. If Dayton wins the regular season crown, Obi will win even if Goodwin beats him in statistical categories.
  4. I keep going back to the KSU game too but lately I've wondered if KSU is just not very good. Either way, we played a lot better in that game than the last 4 games
  5. I would agree that 41% from inside the arc is pretty bad. I have actually been pretty pleased with Perkins but his shot selection leaves a lot to be desired.
  6. 100% agree. I was hoping that guy could be Hankton but it appears I was very wrong about that. If this team had a Loe or Ellis, the offense would look dramatically better
  7. I honestly don't know what to think. With Jimerson out, our best offense is going to be driving to the bucket and scrapping points off of rebounds, loose balls, etc. Actually seemed like we had a good amount of success with that yesterday though. Part of that is because UMass is not a good team. Yes they have some good young players, but they are not a good team. But I was really disappointed in our defense yesterday. We couldn't defend and our guards couldn't stop turning the ball over. I know we lost Bess from last year but our defense looks significantly worse. Hargrove was good atop the 1-3-1 so I'd like to see more of that going forward but that's not a defense you can get by with for 40 minutes a game.
  8. A win is a win I guess. It's been a while since we've played well
  9. The loss of Jimerson really really hurts, but hopefully Ford can find some tweaks to the offense to allow us to score a little more easily. I'm not saying the offense will operate just as efficiently, but last night looked brutal
  10. Part of me thinks last night was just one of those worst case scenario nights. Part of me thinks it showed that our weaknesses and the loss of Jimerson will be magnified in A10 play. It's probably somewhere in between. I don't think we were as good as our record and I do think we're gonna struggle in the grind of the conference, but we won't play as poorly as we did last night We have to start making free throws. Blame whoever you want, but they have to start going in
  11. I still have Thatch penciled in as 2021-22 A10 Defensive POY
  12. - SLU makes the tournament 7 of the 10 years and makes at least one Sweet 16 - Travis Ford is the coach for the entire decade and becomes the longest tenured head coach in school history and also passes Eddie Hickey for most wins - There is a Situation 3 but this time the players are found innocent after a 30 day investigation. Despite this concise and fair process, the season is still derailed as SLU endures their only losing season of the decase - Austin McBroom is sentenced to 6 years in prison after being found guilty of stealing from over 35 Chili's restaurants - roy expands his lead for most posts in board history - SLU still does not sell replica jerseys or merchandise - SLU sets the record for lowest free throw % in a season - Grandy Glaze comes onto the board to sell his premium snapchat and sells over a dozen subscriptions - Jim Crews does not come back as SLU honors the 15 year anniversary of their back to back A10 champion teams - The annual Big East thread is created each year but SLU stays in the A10 - SLU hosts College Gameday before a top 20 matchup against Dayton - SLU men's soccer returns to the Final Four the year after the women's team is the national runner-up - One former player joins Travis Ford's coaching staff and the board decides he is the "coach in waiting" - SLU makes a run in the NIT but is forced to give up a home game due to a Lorde concert at Chaifetz Arena - Travis Ford continues to say something negative in every halftime interview with Scott Highmark - SLU begins a season as a top 10 team with a 5 star lottery pick recruit. After a 21-0 start and a #1 ranking, the 5 star freshman tears his ACL going up for a meaningless dunk in a midseason exhibition game against D2 Fordham and SLU eventually loses in the first round of the NCAA tournament as a 9 seed - Steve correctly picks the exact tally of the 2020, 2024, and 2028 elections. He is made special advisor to the leading candidate's campaign in preparation for the 2032 election. He is forced to sell the rights to the board. Blake Ahearn buys board for over $6M after making very sound investments of his 10 day NBA contract. He limits all posters to 2 posts per day in retaliation of past mistreatment. SLU offers his son a scholarship on his 8th birthday. All is forgiven.
  13. One player I could never decide if I hated or loved was that Fernandez kid from Temple.
  14. I feel like a player with the defensive intensity and shooting ability of Weaver combined with the vision and passing of Collins is probably on Duke or Kentucky or already in the NBA.
