  1. My argument is that the Billikens aren't very good even though they play an easy schedule. Now maybe you want to tell me they play a difficult schedule - looking forward to your information. The A-10 is only a one bid league. The A-10 must not be a good baseball conference then.
  2. So you think the Bills are winning the A-10 tourney? No matter their record they are going to Omaha?
  3. Doesn't make any sense they were pretty good last year. It will be pretty embarrassing to not finish above .500 with such a weak schedule. 2 games vs #175 Fordam 1 game vs # 266 Semo 1 game vs #165 Murry St 3 games vs # 180 Davidson 1 game vs # 224 SIUE 3 game vs # 108 Rhode Island 1 game vs #240 Bradley 3 games vs #275 George Mason 1 game vs # 159 SIUC 3 games vs #183 Richmond
  4. Last NCAA title for soccer 1973. Last time in the Final 1974 vs Howard (title was vacated). Last College Cup appearances 1991 and 1997.
  5. Patriot League Third team. Wow.
  6. Didn't know this thread would have been so popular when I started it. who knew.. Unfortunately the vast majority of posts are just a tad off topic.
  7. Somebody posted on SLU Talk on www.stltoday.com (Why don't more people here post there?) that there are some big teams after Travis Ford. Any news on that?
  8. Rosters full of top recruits and the Billikens still can't win the A-10? How does that work?
  9. Henriquez, Graves and Bishop are the ones you need to blame. Not the Title IX gang or the Board of Trustees. Remember Jim Kavanaugh is on the BOT. So playing pro basketball in Iceland is better than playing basketball at SLU. Who knew? Doesn't say much for the state of SLU basketball does it.
  10. Are the Bills still a serious contender for an NCAA berth?
  11. In terms of dominant teams maybe even more dominant than the Celtics - how about UCLA under John Wooden. Between 1964 and 1975 they won 10 NCAA tournaments.
  12. You are talking about the A-10 tournament right?
  13. Or they received legal advice they didn't have a chance in the case. Why suspend or expel and then pay off?
  14. Possible I guess. Wouldn't think likely. So SLU suspended two of the players and expelled one of them and paid them off at the same time? Then said players left? Why bother with the lengthy Title IX process then? If SLU knew they were wrong just end the investigation. Possible not likely. So SLU admits they were wrong to the players by paying them off but wants people to think they were right? Again, possible not likely. I wouldn't think SLU would be THAT eager to part with their money. Players Attorney: We are going to sue the school. SLU Attorney: Don't do it we will write your client a check. I don't believe it was that easy at all. Keep thinking that though.
  15. Isn't it interesting all three left because of a Title IX investigation. If they were truly wronged, wouldn't they sue the school? Many said on this site that lawsuits would be forthcoming, where are they if they are truly innocent of no wrongdoing and they left school for no reason?
  16. The fact that Graves, Henriquez and Bishop aren't at SLU is their fault and no one else's. They made an extremely poor decision and paid the appropriate price.
  17. Without the top 25 percent stadium clause the Rams probably don’t come to Saint Louis.
  18. Then why are they having it at UC- Santa Barbara this year?
  19. It was at Hermann. So you are saying Hermann is crappy? College Cup unfortunately is NOT a major sports event.
  20. Doesn't it look bad when there are one thousand people in a 20,000 seat stadium?
  21. With all due respect NCAA Final Fours or College Cup as it is known are attendance losers. I think that last year's College Cup was in Houston at the stadium where the Dynamo play. Barely over 1,000 people for the semi-finals, less for the Final. The year prior it was in Kansas City and attendance was the same. This year's College Cup is at UC Santa Barbara on campus. Not at the Home Depot Center or LAFC's new stadium. College Cup has drawn well on the East Coast or South if there are teams that are within driving distance participating. Otherwise College Cup is usually an attendance loser unfortunately. Saint Louis hosted at Hermann back in 2006. You also won't get it multiple years or every year. Why would you have it at an MLS stadium to attract maybe a few thousand.
