  1. His coach at ESTL was bad last year and they won a state championship?
  2. Wiz, the coaches in the Big Sky Conference picked Eastern Washington to win the conference this year...EW returns four starters.
  3. Now that we're 2-0, let's publicly bash players -- classy. The story on Hargrove is he's one of the most athletic players to ever wear a Billiken uniform and will see plenty of time eventually. Lot of competition for minutes this year, which is a good thing.
  4. Agreed, could change. Mike Tyson said, "Everyone has a plan til they get punched in the face." SLU can press for 40 and wear out Loyola in an exhibition. Not so much vs. the Florida States, Virginia Techs and even better A10 teams. They're better equipped to swarm SLU, force the half court game. Think it's more likely Ford will use pressure selectively to inject energy into SLU scoring droughts & swing momentum when the other team is on scoring streaks. Hope the press happens more frequently than last year, with more depth and skillsets. Kudos to TFord for nabbing two big centers to fill the void left by Santos and Gordin...and for nabbing a JUCO and transfer to help fill the void left by the graduation of JBess. Most promising development so far is DJacobs. If he stays healthy and avoids the yips, could help this team perform better than expected with all the newbies.
  5. Is Guy still the announcer this year? He wasn't there for the madness.
  6. First, I'm just grateful tonight that all 15 players were still on the roster for Madness, knock on wood. I don't know that "so many young guys will get significant minutes," particularly later in the season. Yes, Ford says we'll press more and play faster...but they'll be forced to play slower, half court offense by better defenses. That being said, Ford has more weapons in his arsenal for match ups. Lot of different skill sets on the floor tonight.
  7. No complaints about unis. TFord runs a first class program and what they wear now reflects that.
  8. At least it's not as ugly as the PA announcer mishaps on Madness night.
  9. Couple positives: 1. Ford has a solid core of experienced guys, likely starters, mostly upperclassmen ... Weaver, Goodwin, Thatch, Perkins, French... 2. It would not be surprising if any one of 10 or 11 guys shine and earn a starting spot during the course of the season.... Don't know if this has been posted but the new roster is up: http://www.slubillikens.com/SportSelect.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=27200&SPID=93215&SPSID=632633&DB_OEM_ID=27200&_ga=2.95535324.112765122.1568170196-1336061088.1568170196
  10. Everyone on Kentucky plays professionally—get the briefcase and plane tickets to TFord ASAP!
  11. Appreciate the alert...Nice article in the Columbia Post-Dispatch today about how Mizzou won’t lock down STL recruiting...uh-huh....JGood, Thatch, Hargrove, Collins, Perkins...
  12. What about Brett Jolly, could he average 9 at Siena? For that matter could 95 percent of the recruits of his era average 9 at Siena?
  13. Good sign, thanks for pointing it out.
