  1. The problem is until the mid 80’s or so, SLU didn’t take basketball seriously which led to lost generations of fandom. Not to mention we had all four major sports in that timeframe which took away attention from the program. Now we only have the Blues to compete against. Win and win consistently and the fanbase will grow.
  2. Yes, and from what I've heard on KDNL as well.
  3. Feels like this year is going to be the 2007 of college basketball.
  4. Blame the Jesuits for unleashing the demon in 1949.
  5. Not quite. Who have we beaten yet ? All we have is a blowout loss to ranked Memphis.
  6. Win or lose, VCU and Dayton will be in the March Madness picture.
  7. I don’t mind Mizzou’s attitude. There’s no reason on earth their basketball program should be in the state that it’s in. It’s all self inflicted. Same for SLU. We’d probably be in the BE if Biondi didn’t fumble the football. Being the biggest fish in a small pond is small time thinking.
  8. Both. This is over. I must say, I love the Cards and Blues, but if professional sports ceased to exist today I wouldn’t shed a tear. At this stage in my life, I’m content with just following the Billikens.
  9. St. Louis doing what it does best, fall on their johnsons.
  10. Because the negroes know their place, right ?
  11. With Perkins, yes, they might've.
  12. Schmidt ran circles around Ford last year and I don't see it changing.
  13. Bonnies are heads and shoulders better than everyone in the A10.

  15. 14 Wins, 13 Losses, .519 W% in favor of Saint Louis https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/play-index/matchup_finder.cgi?request=1&year_min=1950&year_max=2022&comp_school=le&rank_school=ANY&comp_opp=le&rank_opp=ANY&school_id=saint-louis&opp_id=loyola-il&game_type=A&order_by=date_game
  16. Some of them think the conference is a stepping stone for a Big East invite. We’ll see.
  17. So George Mason proved you can both be a good mid major team and beat a ranked team. Something we have yet to do since 2013.

  19. Perkins' loss aside, they're not ready for primetime.
  20. Disappointing end to the first half, but expected. We're truly dicked without Perkins.
  21. I’m familiar with that Playhard fellow. He, like most from the KC region, has an inferiority complex for St. Louis.
  22. 80-66 Kansas City- Final I think it's fair to say SLU has everything to lose and none to gain by booking a game against them.
