  1. Next week this board will be going nuts...just hope it’s in positive Pitbull fashion...if indeed Oct. 1 happens as advertised.
  2. Flight 22, destination A10 title, now boarding!
  3. Besides a 30 ppg average against decent competition, he was averaging 6 apg. Shares the ball. Would fit nicely as a major scoring threat after JP graduates.
  4. Goodwin, French, Perkins, Collins and Jimmerson get most minutes but with Bell starting again. 10 deep with Hargrove, Jacobs, Thatch and Linssen. Wild card is Thatch, missed his D vs. hot hands last season.
  5. John Redden was a walk-on. Helped deliver a big-time butt kicking to No. 1 Cincy, A10 tourney title and NCAA birth. Get ‘r done, PR!
  6. He's probably at dinner with his wife saying the exact same thing about all of us.
  7. The number of long distance threats on the court depends on the time on the clock, the score and the player matchups. We all know the core will get the big minutes unless someone like Bell dominates in practice and gets way more minutes than his 5-minute start...so, Collins, Goodwin, French, Perkins and Jimmerson. That’s an amazing lineup, with TONS of depth!
  8. Every day is a new day man.
  9. Wish him the best....what stood out most for me was his footwork under the basket. NBA level.
  10. I think he made a good choice at that level, the methdale program appears on the upswing...which would be good for SLU's strength of schedule each year.
  11. That is correct. He averaged 12 points, 3 rebounds and 28 minutes a game for SUIE as a junior last year. Good shooting percentages — 47% overall, 38% 3pt, 78% FT. He’s a 6-7 guard...his averages are solid but with his accuracy, even as a SLU frosh, one would think he could be more dominant. Then again there’s not a whole lot of stars on that team, so that could be problematic. Although it appears their recruiting went up a notch this year, we’ll see.
  12. Agree Big East is ideal, question whether it will ever happen. I’ll say this about the A10...the one thing they did right was getting Bernadette McGlade to serve as commissioner. Shes got a way better TV exposure for the conference,. She also quickly signed on new members (Davidson) when the conference could have imploded when schools like Xavier bolted. Doug Elgin and the MVC were the toast of the town when SLU joined the A10 in the mid-2000s. She’s done a way better job keeping the A10 nationally competitive since that time... Look at the postseason bids for the two conferences year after year and there’s no comparison.
  13. Yes, I meant both video during game and via social afterward, sorry for the confusion.
  14. I’m surprised he hasn’t been sacked yet. As the Sports Illustrated article stated, one of the reasons Ford is a master recruiter is that he’s a perfectionist when it comes to a recruit’s or player’s overall experience...an all-out game-day experience translating to what the recruit sees on the campus visit...it’s no accident the jerseys look 10 times better now than they ever have with the arch on the back, in line with Ford’s assertion from Day 1 that this is the city’s team. The video during and after the game is now on par with the hockey team, which is up there nationally. Guarantee that’s a big tool for recruiting...
