    2018-19 season

    Eek. Well if Bess does not play and there is any possible silver lining to this, it's that it gives some other players an opportunity to step their games up big time.

    I would never be caught dead in a t shirt like that. That isn't a deep enough v neck for me!

    Hopefully someone recorded the game on VHS and sent Jason Jitoboh a copy on Sunday! We need that big guy on our squad next year.

    Fieldhouse: Saturday at 2pm

    Rally House is the Stephen Baldwin of SLU gear stores. Based on what @billikenfan05 and others have said, it sounds like the bookstore or store at Chaifetz are the best options.

    MLS 4 the Lou

    Agree 100%. Although I fully believe Rams are still in LA right now even without top tier clause in the contract.

    Oh for sure, this has all the BOA support it needs for tomorrow's vote and then some, assuming they go through with the vote tomorrow.

    They are mostly on Twitter, a breeding ground for armchair QBs and complainers Not sure why it bothers me so much but probably because of the irony. A lot of the complaints I've seen are that the stadium won't generate any property tax revenue (even though that site hasn't generated one dollar of property tax revenue the previous 50 years). These people keep claiming that something bigger and better could be built on that site instead and that we are kowtowing to mediocrity. The irony is this: they want to pass up this MLS opportunity and stadium (being paid for out of the Taylor's money market account) on the off chance something better may come up down the road. How do mediocre cities remain mediocre? By passing up project after project waiting for the one they feel is perfect. The one that likely never comes.

    I've come full circle. I've gone from defending city dwellers/hipsters against county folk who complained and trashed the city for pretty much everything (while offering no solutions whatsoever), to now criticizing the city folk/hipsters for doing the very same thing. Kind of shocked at the amount of them opposed to this stadium/team. I get that the sting is still there from the Rams and that public handouts for stadiums, in general, are not a good deal for cities in the long run. But this isn't a normal deal. This ins't a public handout. The Taylor's aren't doing this to increase their bottom line. There is not 1 city in the United States that would turn this deal down. Not 1. Funny thing is, there sure didn't appear to be much of an uproar in 2016 when the city approved tax incentives for BPV Phase 2. Or in 2012 when they approved tax incentives for BPV Phase 1. Or in 2018 when the city approved tax incentives for Del Boca Vista Phase 3. Maybe because those tax incentives went to a cause a majority of St. Louisans liked? Funny how malleable outrage can be, isn't it? Sorry, had to rant. Please return to your regularly scheduled Tilk outrage.

    Recruiting - 2020 Class (Optimal Vision Class)

    @TheChosenOne I've heard Mizzou is going after Fletcher pretty hard but not sure if the feeling is mutual. Best recruiting tool is winning. Hopefully we can pile up the Ws this year and next and get Collins, Hargrove, etc. in Fletcher's ear (or on the Twitters like the kids are doing these days) RE: the video.....does it make anyone else's eyes hurt watching it?

    Don't think Furman has a win versus FSU this year.

    GDT vs Pittsburgh in Brooklyn

    I was pretty angry after this loss but then I decided to do something I never do: think positively. A few positive notes from the game: 1) We weren't going undefeated this year. It's an early loss and we have plenty of tough non-con games left to redeem ourselves. We can still end our non-con schedule with an impressive record heading into league play. Protect our home court and steal one or two on the road and we're heading into conference play with double digit wins. 2) We lost on a neutral court to an ACC team who is now 6-0. Pitt certainly isn't going to tear it up in conference play but this isn't a bad loss by any means. 3) We lost to an ACC team on a neutral court with our starting 5 on the bench for most of the first half. We win this game by 7 with our starting 5 getting normal minutes that first half and Wiley playing in the 2nd half. 4) We got decent minutes from players we didn't expect much from this season. 5) it looks like Hankton may actually be able to provide valuable minutes and he can apparently stroke the 3. Even better, he can make 2 free throws in a row! Hope the rest of the team takes notes. Great pass by Jacobs to the cutting JG in the first half as well. 6) That's 2 games, 50 fouls called against us and we went 1-1 with our 1 loss by just a basket. If players can adjust to foul calls this season this should lead to less free points for our opponents. My only concern about adjusting is the fact that the refs have been atrocious this season and incredibly inconsistent. Perfect example: refs telling Ford contact had to be intentional on that forearm to Jacob's face. Against Seton Hall, refs told him the complete opposite when they called French for the foul. Despite horrible officiating, this team has battled and hasn't let it get to them. 7) Goodwin's back baby! Okay, don't want to jinx anything here but this was by far his best game this year. 8 ) This team will rebound and destroy Central Arkansas. 9) Everyone enjoy your Thanksgiving tomorrow! Looking forward to drinking 5 bottles of wine by myself and making my wife drive home. Thankful the Bills are back baby!

    My feed is spotty at best. Keeps going out so I haven't been able to watch fluidly. I checked my phone for the box score and it says TI is 0-1 from the field? Has TI even played?

    why is it impossible for anyone on our team to hit 2 free throws in a row?
