    Recruiting - 2019

    Let's just lock up both guys and start worrying about other positions.

    The NIT

    My thoughts on the NIT is that it would provide us an opportunity to play teams we don't get the chance to play in the regular season. If we get to matchup against some P5 schools and get our guys more experience (remember that Goodwin and French are only Sophomores) then we should go for it.

    Geedubya from da'Couch .....

    Do they have any talented bigs that are somewhat unhappy with their playing time and see Gordon as eating into their time even further? Maybe we can work out the equivalent of a three or four player trade.

    I felt the same way about Ingvi before he transferred. Kid was making every shot in warm ups, but couldn't get in. I'm sure there were reasons (defense or other), but we have to show guys some playing time if you want to keep them around.

    OT: Ford’s seat getting warm

    This is a typical Billikens.com argument where both sides over-exaggerate what the other side is saying. There's no chance that Bess going to the NBA won't have a positive effect on recruiting. However, it won't be all that much of an effect. If we're in a recruiting battle with other A-10 teams, and Ford can tell a kid that we've recently sent a player to the NBA, and that he saw what Bess did and went through to get there, and that he sees a little bit of Bess in that kid and can imagine the same thing happening to him if he works as hard as Bess, sure, that might make a difference to that kid. You guys have to recognize that. However, like I said, to many other kids, it won't make any difference at all.

    GDT: Arch Baron Cup 2k19

    I know that it is. It's just that the picture they used was an iconic photo in Billiken fandom. Wish they had found a miscellaneous picture of the Billikens from the 60s

    Don't get me wrong, I love the site and think we need to make this a real thing.

    GDT: Arch Baron Cup 2k19

    I love the website, but have one problem. They have a picture of our 1948 NIT Champion team claiming that they are the 1961 ArchBaron Cup winning team. Not a big deal, but that's just a famous Billiken photo.

    Crazy prophetic, man.

    Anyone else see the jerkwad assistant coach from Dayton come over and disrupt out guys coming our for the second half?

    OT: Midtown Development

    If the merger goes through, and there are other concerns other than just this, then I hope you and this commission are right.

    Off topic: Screw Stan Kroenke

    That's great. My favorite is the line at the end.

    Are we positive the FBI would report the whole region or divide it up somehow? You might be right, but this commission saying its going to have a certain effect and not being right is a very St. Louis thing to happen.

    OT: Ford’s seat getting warm

    I'm hoping that Ford calls Goodwin into his office and explains to him that plans have changed. He's no longer going to be the next Marcus Smart. Instead, if he keeps shooting extra before and after practice, like I've heard he's been doing lately, he's now going to be the next Javon Bess. Then Ford can move him to the three which will allow him to ease off the responsibility of handling the ball all the time and guarding little, pesky, lightning fast point guards, and concentrate on making shots and rebounding.

    OT: Midtown Development

    The problems is that someone writing an article about crime statistics for Yahoo or USA Today doesn't have to use that criteria. They make judgement calls all over the country about what borders to use. A "journalist," I hesitate to call the people that write these articles journalists, could just say that counting all of St. Louis County is no different than counting all of Jackson County, Missouri or Cook County, Illinois and decide that's not what they should use. Then they just go back to using the statistics for the municipal district of St. Louis. The flaw in your logic is assuming that the Better Together board and its ideas have any sway over someone writing an article.
