  1. Never change, Illini fans. Never change. I feel like that poster on the Illini board is the guy in the center of the gif. Pre announcement: "Cliff is a lock you guys, trust me."
  2. Fordham and Loyola Marymount at 66? I feel like Gonzaga really had nothing special going for it prior to their basketball program taking off.
  3. Might be better for SLU for Hughes Jr to take off later in the recruitment process, prevents any blue bloods from swooping in and snagging him away from the Bills.
  4. Hughes Jr will be a Billiken
  5. Either way, you have to love the positive SLU article next to the one about Wash U getting sued
  6. This is huge, and to be honest, long overdue. In reality, our education system has been bogged down over the past number of decades by teaching strictly to the test. Teachers don't like it. Students don't like it. For-profit testing companies love it. We need a return to the classical education of years past, where teachers could teach their students important life skills, not just standardized test taking strategies.

  10. Jimerson, Lorentsson, and French in the game at the same time.... Sweet Jesus. The Werewolf is going to have a feast in the wide open paint, or else our snipers will be raining 3's all day long. Yuri/Jacobs -- Goodwin -- Perkins/Jimerson -- Lorentsson -- French/Bell Deadly with that stretch 4 presence.
  11. Preliminary results from a vaccine human trial could here by mid June. Huge news. This is the best chance at a "silver bullet" that we've got. https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/30/uk/oxford-coronavirus-vaccine-trial-astrazeneca-gbr-intl/index.html
  12. A joke that anyone considers this a-hole anything but the absolute antithesis of a medical professional.
