Recruit (1/7)

  1. These are 3 great additions to our staff! It’s had to be incredibly difficult for our coaches to go into the office. I think/hope it got better today for our guys.
  2. Then again I say hats off to the SLU staff for knowing that his grades were not going to be an issue. Lots of JUCO kids have grade problems, that's why they're there and why they go play for guy's like Jay Harrington. He fixes that issue and obviously SLU knew what others didn't. Also interesting is that we were all in on a JUCO player with academic issues that few schools offered. Gives us options we previously shied away from.
  3. I was speaking to his offers out of SWIC
  4. JUCO kids don't get the love they deserve, but there is a reason. They typically need a year in the weight room and some healthy eating to get caught up physically, and many, with only 2 years left, are considered too risky. They don't come from programs with strength coach's, fueling stations, nutritionist and training tables. They live off Mcdonald's. Perkins is a perfect example, who was a JUCO all-american, with very few offers. He was physically behind his fellow juniors by a lot and I think a lot of coach's back off these guys for that reason. Hat's off to the SLU staff for seeing past all that on Javonte.
  5. I think most believe we should play a game and Ford said he wanted to play a game, and now it's arrived. If we pass then that tells me he heard from the NCAA that we would get some help.
  6. The NCAA should come out right now and say how a team postponed by Covid will be looked at. I say you get a break on your first game back. If you sit out as long as SLU you should get a 2 game break. If you have the answer to that fair question then it would be clear if we should play or not. Not knowing how it will be treated is crap. Keep in mind, the Kenpoms of the world are not factoring Covid in and we are right there. Factor it in and we are solidly in the tournament.
  7. When you look at his stats based on the lost games I think he’s the next man up for a banner, but I concede there are several others worthy. The intangibles are what sets him apart. I wonder if he were to come back another year how his stats would be perceived? Another JGood type of year and the banner becomes a no brainer imo
  8. Not sure there’s been a more productive 10 minutes of action in college basketball like the one Terrence Hargrove put on last night. Made all 4 shots of which 2 were 3’s, 2 rebounds, a steal and an assist. I’m not sure where the minutes come from, but Hargrove needs more pt
  9. Clock and 05 have summed up the Miller era and why they believe new blood is in order with facts and astute observations. Roy, you are just annoying.
  10. The reason for why he hasn’t been fired can only be answered by one person, Chris May. If you have his ear maybe he’ll tell you, but to ask 05 why it hasn’t happened is silly. I never said he should be fired, Roy got upset, name called and made that part up. I think SLU is perfectly happy with a mediocre volleyball program and as I said they brought in a couple of asst. Coach’s who are focusing on local talent, and it will pay off. My guess is as long as a coach at SLU is in the top half of the conference and it’s players are good citizens and students the job is safe. The point 05 made and I supported was the Kent Miller has done a poor job. SLU should be a top 40 program every year and their not close.
  11. Roy, your guess was way off base. You admit you know nothing about the subject and you are correct. SLU's is at the top of the budget pecking order in the A-10. What you do know a lot about is SLU's apathy for non revenue sports. So I'm surprised that you question why Miller hasn't been fired?
  12. Miller has bungled the local recruiting scene since day 1. For those unaware, St.Louis is a hot bed of volleyball talent and Miller has all but ignored the best local talent. By the time he gets around to making offers he is usually left with what's left, and in a sport that the top kids often commit early in high school, it's a recipe for disaster. Playing in an awful conference has been his saving grace. However, things are looking up. The addition of a couple of assistants who were hell bent on going local paid off this year with the addition of 3 top St. Louis kids.
  13. There were 4 guys behing the Lasalle bench in the upper deck who were having a great time. They gave it to the refs and the Lasalle bench pretty good. Funny. No cursing. No reason to be ejected. They did leave early, but I didn't see anyone come for them. I attributed that to the beer running out at halftime.
  14. There was a change to his post covid approach after half time. Coach had a heart to heart with him in the intermission and he came out and didn't take a shot in the 1st 10 minutes of the 2nd half. He actually went overboard to let Coach know he got the message. Goodwin didn't learn squat on the bench, he was too busy cheering on his mates.
  15. Those that said SLU ducked Richmond and those that said we would never know what happened sure were way off
