  1. I would like to see Has' get through one season without having to deal with "big man discrimination" from the refs. Normally, when a driving player runs into a defender, the defender falls down and gets the call. When a driver runs into Has', he remains upright, the offensive player hits the deck, and they call the foul on Has'. Someone needs to wise up the refs that just because a guy is built like a house and is strong as an ox doesn't mean that they're the one committing the foul.
  2. KMOX or SLU or someone should provide podcasts of Rammer and Earl's game broadcasts. Dayton has this and I've listened to replays of our games with them from time to time. My son was listening to Rammer and Earl while I was at work and texted me some Rammer commentary. Has anyone tried the "sync my broadcast" tool that let's you sync up a radio broadcast with what's showing? Would love to see be able to watch while getting play by play from Rammer and Earl.
  3. Also, the sideline out of bounds play with only five seconds on the clock was a thing of beauty. We're lucky to have Coach Ford. Also, another overlooked play was JGood's great hustle to secure the rebound on the sideline which led to the three where Perkins was fouled. Without that one, who knows how it plays out. Perkins was unbelievable, GJ was clutch and everyone played well. GREAT Win!!
  4. Terrific shot by Demarius. He was 5-5 from the floor, made his only 3 pt. attempt and 2-2 from the stripe. His play was crucial to the win.
  5. Saw the first half live, but could only follow the second half play by play on statbroadcast.com. That second half, WOW, what a game. Perkins and Thomas put on a show. Both looked like NBA ready players right now. Terrific win for the good guys!!
  6. Dayum, offer Mr. Mayo RIGHT NOW!!!
  7. Next dominos are falling. Looks like no fall college sports. This was inevitable. No way college hoops starts before Jan. 1 and that season is in serious jeopardy.
  8. The first domino falls, UConn has cancelled it’s football season.
  9. If I’m wrong, I’ll own up to it, but I doubt any college sports will be played this year. The hope we had for sports as we’ve known them, which includes fan attendance without limitations, was to shut the economy down through July 4th, and have everyone follow the remediation efforts that we’re all now familiar with. Since a July 4th restart scenario wasn’t likely, I hoped we could keep everything shut down through Memorial Day, and maybe we’d get lucky. Once the “liberate states” stuff started, that was likely the end of sports in the USA for ‘20-21.
  10. Thanks Coach for all you did in building the program. Seriously, good luck, but my question is, why take a step down to South Carolina?
  11. Jimmy Bell Jr. aka "The Locomotive"
  12. Sad news. Condolences to Earl. His Uncle was an immovable object in the post.
  13. Props on the Biancardi interview. Among others, the story about Eckerle trying to guard Derrick Rose in the secret game was great. Reminded me of my futile attempts at trying to guard guys who were just way more athletic than me.
  14. When you live in ACC country you run into fans who love Duke, Carolina, and others but aren’t really familiar with teams not in the Power 5 conferences.
  15. I’ve been asked by more than “casual” sports fans.
  16. The Chris Sloan podcast is excellent. Good storytelling and plenty of good stories. His description of Izik Ohannan’s time at SLU is great and I especially liked the Channing Frye dunk story and the Dayton return plane flight. SLU owning a bunch of old airplanes is funny in its own right.
  17. Just listened to the Earl interview. Loved it. Earl lived up to his nickname as the awesome one.
  18. Nostradamus has nothing on you. Good call.
  19. Go Bills! They were really coming together late in the year with the 5 double digit wins to end the season. That’s especially impressive when you factor in the Thatch and Jimerson absences. I was amazed by the way Perkins came on beginning with the Davidson game. Despite his juco stats, I didn’t think he looked like a double digit scorer at the D-1 level when I watched the juco all-star game. Figured he would average 9 to 9.5 ppg and thought he didn’t look like a consistent three pt. threat. Thought most of his points would come from the 12 to 18’ range because that’s the one thing
  20. SluSignGuy bringing the heavy lumber. Well done!!
  21. From following the situation closely over the past month and having a healthcare background, my guess is that May 22nd is the first possible date we can begin to open up segments of the economy. Looking at the May calendar, the 26th seems like a logical date they'll settle on as it's the Tuesday following Memorial Day.
  22. XFL closing up shop. One more victim of the coronavirus.
