  1. In little bill I trust I will stop
  2. Reading the link that was provided to this site read to me he was leaning Missouri and liked Kansas St. I read some posts on Tiger board that they thought he was too raw and should go to a smaller school then transfer to MU. Some mentioned it was not a real solid offer and I do not know what that means.
  3. He looks like a good player. UMass seems to be trending upward along with other teams in the A10. I think with the new transfer rules and the NIL the small schools will get the higher rated high school players and the power conference schools fill their rosters with transfers. I am hoping there will be a way that the small school players that the power conferences want to poach find enough NIL money to keep them from transferring.
  4. Welcome Brock Vice, your the big man the team needed and look forward to seeing you receive a medley of passes for finishes at the rim.
  5. I agree the attendance was good for Auburn and Dayton last season. The A10 will never be The Great Midwest or Conference USA when crowds were huge and SLU was in the top 20 in attendance. Attending the games is so much better than watching on TV. If SLU can get in the top 25 early in the season and stay in the top 25 to March then I think more fans will show up.
  6. Some fans posted that they would stay away because of the mask mandate, vaccine or proof of a negative test to get in. I read some posts that SLU was not strict enough and stayed away. Hopefully all fans that did not attend because of COVID will come back and enjoy watching this team live and be rewarded with a special season.
  7. The context of the subject was under 6’ 2” and wasn’t Mike listed at 6’ 2”? If Mike is under then his name should be mentioned he is a Billiken great.
  8. Thank you for the information coach it reads in my opinion a lean to Missouri. No mention of SLU leads me to believe he is a long shot commit to SLU but I hope I am wrong.
  9. Welcome Cian to Billiken nation. Your are the future floor general.
  10. If Perkins returns to form and Parker is a creator like Perkins defenses will get scored on if defenses swarm Yuri. Last season it worked because Yuri created for the other players because no one on the team stepped up for that role. I was hopping Nesbitt would be that guy last season but Nesbitt did not finish when he created so swarm Yuri was a good defense.
  11. 6’ 4” 4 Star point guard sounds great to me I hope SLU is a serious contender for this player.
  12. The positive side of your post is spot on. As soon as Yuri announced SLU responded quickly to give the players additional resources to set themselves up money making deals. At the time I thought wow this was the first time SLU responded to an issue so quick. My personal feeling is that Yuri, if he has another great season, will get a great NIL deal from a top school that he dreams of playing for and get a chance of being the point guard for a National champion team. My belief is that the only reason he is not playing for Tennessee is because of tampering.
  13. You just could not resist HP, thanks for the laugh
  14. Fair question for a recruit to ask now with the NIL. Chemistry with the visit with players and coaches is important along with winning, location and education for some. There are plenty of miserable people working jobs they hate but the money is good. Hopefully kids will weigh out the whole package instead of just going for the money.
  15. Thank you for posting the tweet I tried posting the tweet and twitter flagged my account as spam and locked my account, lol. I appealed and quickly got it unlocked but older people and twitter can be dangerous.
  16. West Pine Bills on twitter is posting Bailey is back and his evidence is that Bailey has been wiped from the UMass site. I would post the tweet but I have not figured that out yet.
  17. I agree and I think it’s too late now to find a player available that would be better than Hughes or Thames but I could be wrong. I am not a good evaluator of players so I am probably wrong. Happy Friday
  18. A assumption about not having a backup point guard because no one on the bench has that title. I will wait and see when the team plays if there is not a suitable backup. The best way to find immediate playing time the new players have is to work hard in practice to win the backup Yuri position. I am hoping for Thames or Hughes to step up and claim the backup up role. If this team loses Yuri to injury getting to the big dance will be in jeopardy.
  19. I usually don’t read any of this posters threads and have him on ignore but I saw you posted so I bit. This clown has posted he wished SLU would have ended the basketball program and kept the hockey program. When I read that nonsense on a basketball board I knew he was a hockey fan not a basketball fan. I hope all is well with you.
  20. All good points HP I thought Okoro made a big jump last season and I hope the next jump would be to improve on rim protection and a 10 foot jumper.
  21. I think Thames will be the player that we thought Nesbitt would be.
  22. I was going to ask you about Parker but I have your answer and I trust your opinions. The only thing good about Perkins injury was that it happened in an exhibition game so before the season starts it will be a year that it happened and almost a year since his surgery. I am hoping for other players to have improved enough to be to be able to step up to win those Q1 tight games but realistically I agree what teams will do with Yuri.
  23. I get by the numbers where you are coming from however coach Ford has ran into so tough luck. If Perkins is healthy I believe the Billikens win a least 4 more games last season. I thought the coach did a good job without Perkins last season. The COVID season where the team who beat LSU is shut down for over a month. 2019/2020 the team finished the season with 5 straight conference wins and played like a well oiled machine and then COVID ends the season. Ford imo overachieves in recruiting and hopefully this season will be the season of good luck. I like that coach Ford has the team in the running for a post season bid every year now and has managed to put together consecutive winning seasons.
  24. I am hoping Parker like Perkins can create his own shot. That will take a lot of pressure off the back-up point guard who ever that is. I am for giving Larry Hughes Jr. the last scholarship instead of bringing in another pg that night not get off the bench.
  25. The tears will be in your eyes come March after the Bonnie’s first round A10 tournament defeat. It appears never considered St. B either.
