  1. @billiken_roy is spot on. At this time SLU needs to worry about winning basketball games in the conference it's in. SLU needs to build a program with a tradition of winning basketball with all the fixings, sweet 16s, a rabid fanbase, all the merch of the big boys, etc. Until we do that the Big East isn't going to come calling. It hurts me to type is as much as I'm sure it's going to anger everyone to read it. I desperately want to be in the Big East club with all the Marquette alum I work with. Sometimes the truth hurts. That said, if SLU REALLY wants to change conferences. The MVC i
  2. Lol, you have no respect for me? I'm allowed to be disappointed in the results today, and I'm allowed to make snarky comments about the school I attended. My guess is Joran regrets his decision to attend Saint Louis University just like I do.
  3. Yes to all of this! VCU is always going to be the darling of the A10. We need to be in a conference were we're the premier team. That very well may be the MVC.
  4. Wonder how Goodwin is feeling right now with Illinois getting a 1 seed while SLU is on the outside looking in.
  5. Because SLU hasn't proved to be a big time program at a better conference would want. Freaking Loyola is passing us by.
  6. I'll never forget sitting in traffic and getting a notification that Jordan Goodwin had committed to Saint Louis University. Dude made it cool to be a Billiken. I don't know if he's destined for the NBA, but if he makes it, I'll be at Fiserv Forum cheering him on when he comes to play my Milwaukee Bucks.
  7. Scheduling Kentucky early is a smart move. They're big and talented, but they're never a complete team early in the season. If you beat them, you'll have that feather in your cap for the rest of the season, if you lose, well, you lost to the 10th best team in the country.
  8. I said it last year. He's the best player on the team. He's the only one with NBA potential. Has to learn to defend better though.
  9. Everyone needs to relax. If he makes it big in the NBA, we'll still be able to invite him to shoot around in our gym wearing Billiken gear. I'm sure he still loves the hometown program. SLU can still get all the benefits of having an NBA player come out of the program without him actually coming out of the program.
  10. Me too. The Heat are fun to watch. I'll be cheering for them against the Lakers. Pretty pumped for that series!
  11. What a series! bummed it's over. I was hoping for a game 7. The good news is now Tatum can get back to St. Louis and help out the Saint Louis University basketball program.
  12. Haha. That's true. All our best players are.
  13. I'm out of reactions for today. So you won't get a good post out of me, but you're absolutely right. I for one am all for it. Is it really cheating if everyone is doing it? I actually think it's a complement that people think we're cheating. Means were doing something right.
  14. If he likes coming off the bench, then that's awesome. I'm not going to pretend to know what this kid does and doesn't like, but if he wants to start, he's earned that honor. Plus, the article in the Athletic literally says Ford plans to start him this season.
  15. Perkins is arguably THE best player. Starting matters to these kids, and you're right, he's earned the starting spot with his performances last year.
  16. Absolutely. The floor spacing should be spectacular. Defenses won't be able to sag off their man or they'll pay the price. That's going to open things up for Goodwin and French to have their way around the rim. Or, you know, maybe not. I'm excited to see what happens.
  17. This might be one of the most anticipated Billiken seasons in history. We have some straight up ballers on this team and it will be interesting if they can put all the pieces together and do something special. I think I'm most excited to see how Javonte Perkins game has improved. He has the potential to be an NBA guard and I hope to see him just absolutely take over games.
  18. Dude. You can't say you blocked me and continue to hit me up. Don't you see how stupid that makes you look? It's okay to admit you didn't watch the game.
