  1. The “playing time” situation will become even more interesting in January, when Jadiah Stewart enters the mix. Effusively labeled as “the best player ever to suit up for the Lady Bills, better than even Jackie” by someone in authority very, very, close to the team. I’m looking forward to it!
  2. Nice analysis. The player who impressed me most yesterday was #22. Smooth playmaker who appears to see the game a couple of steps ahead of his teammates. One example is the sweet through ball 22 played to Boyce late in the second half. Had Boyce been on the same wave length as Kidd, and running into space, the former would have found himself past the Fordham back four and one on one with the keeper. And I like Boyce....just wish SLU had a forward who saw the game the way Kidd does.
  3. Bills gave as good as they got. A fair result would have been 3 - 3. A few observations: 1) ND second goal was the result of a no hesitation, lightening quick counter with some elite passing inside the 18. Well earned. 2) ND third goal was horrific. Utter ball watching by Bills defense. The scorer easily ran 50 yards unmarked with only Schulte within a country mile of him. Lynn spotted run and delivered the required pass. BTW, did SLU recruit this CCP kid? His Dad payed for SLU. 3) A blatant, unequivocal penalty was not called in the Bill’s favor late in the second half. Bill’s forward (think it was Boyce) ferociously shoved from behind and completely knocked of the ball well inside the penalty area. Occurred right in front of me. Crowd’s cheers quickly turned to jeers as we watched the ref wave play on...what a joke... 4) SLU needs to upgrade the concession area. Lines were unbelievable. Funny that the locker rooms open up right into the crowd. My friends and I found ourselves walking back to the field in the company of the ND center mid after half time. We had to ask folks to get out of the way so that he could get down the steps and back to the field. 5) Two SLU projected starters, Kidd and Becher, did not play. I like this SLU team. Aswe can play straight up with a top 10 team, the future bodes well IMHO. 05 can fill in the balance. Check out the ND soccer site for a decent video of the game highlights. SLU needs to get something like this on their site.
  4. Did not realize Gomez was a local. Was mistakenly advised last night Fink the only native STL player. If Schulte can play anywhere close to Gomez level this Fall, we are in for a treat. Kasey Keller edition triple save was awesome. For those soccer fans unable to attend the game last night, check it out on You tube. You’re in for a treat!
  5. Complete non-sequitor, but a bit of Blues/Bills trivia. Patrick Maroon. His father was a soccer Bill. Walked on in 74. Played a couple of games in mop up time. Backed up Hudson/Droege. Did not return in 75.
  6. True, but Clarke is NOT coming back.....
  7. Yep, that’s when I knew it was a lock for the Billies!
  8. Who steps up to partner with Izzy today? By my count, it’s DJ’s turn!
  9. Agree on both KL and the sister. She could also play the sport. I’m surprised her name never surfaces in the “who is better” Harbison/Kempf conversation....
  10. Duquesne lost by 42 today. Sometimes you’re the windshield, and sometimes you’re the bug. Duquesne was able to experience both in less than 24 hours.....
  11. Agreed. I tuned in thinking I would listen to about five minutes just to get the flavor. 85 minutes later I was still there, and could have listened to another 60. Love Mike’s response style: remain inscrutable, yet impart some damn interesting information. I can think of twenty additional questions I would have asked him. Unique in that he transcends the last elite Majerus/Crews year, the two horrific Crews years, and Ford’s first year.
  12. Heck, I was shouting out “hold up!”, but ultimately the call was Foreman’s. No doubt Ford would have been all over him if he had made the wrong decision...
  13. Slightly over ten seconds left to go in the game. Foreman receives the ball with a free and clear path to the basket. Fantastic opportunity for a thunder dunk. His eyes squinted, his body tensed.....and then intelligence and maturity won out. He pulled back and dribbled out. RESPECT.
  14. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Frantz in more of a zone than she was in the first half last night. VCU was shell shocked. This team will be fun to watch in the A10 tournament.
  15. Mason is really struggling. Destroyed in Olean and giving up a 20 point lead to Dukes last Saturday. I won’t be at all surprised if the Spiders take them down.
