Is anyone concerned about Cisse still not on campus?  He certainly could have used this pre-trip training period to learn the Billiken system and receive all the coaching help a raw talent needs. Any solid news on this front from any posters?

Who is the player with the ball in this picture?  Which brings up another question.  Why hasn't the roster on the Official SLU Athletics website been updated, including the coaching staff?

Let's look at the A10 honor roll for academic achievement for this year. Here are the MBB members included in it:

Brandon Courtney
Gibson Jimerson
Marten Linssen
Francis Okoro
Fred Thatch Jr.

Do you see the names Yuri Collins or Javonte Perkins in this list? No, they are not there. Why should this be? In my opinion, only those student athletes that intend to pursue a career outside of sports will be willing to put on the time and effort of getting the grades to make the honor roll. We all know it is not easy to obtain this level of academic achievement, but if you add to it the amount of time these kids spend in practice and playing, it is absolutely an outstanding level of achievement for them. You do not see Yuri or Javonte in this list because they see their future as playing basketball professionally. In my opinion, this is not the case for the kids listed above. This is an opinion.

No player who sees pro basketball as a career choice could also put in the effort to be an honor student?

That opinion is utterly ridiculous.

There are always exceptions to every rule. If you look hard enough you will find them.

They take new team pictures or

the roster and coaching staff are not complete.

Rothstein likes the Bills, Dayton, VCU and Davidson as the top 4. 
Collins, Perkins, Burton, Oduro and Holmes as 1st team  (No Loyer?)

He picks Holmes as POY.  Pickett is one of his Top 10 Impact Transfers and Forrester one of his Top 10 Under the Radar Transfers

Appears the A10 is a guard (wing) heavy league, as usual.

If only there was a decent team in Chicago (other than LOY CHI) with an instantly recognizable theme song the band could play to f with them........

Do Northwestern or DePaul not?

If you know the Northwestern or Depaul fightsongs you are some kind of wholly depressed and depressing savant.  Those two programs combined would kill for the successes of the  crews years at SLU......
