I am surprised.....but then also not surprised....that no one on this board has even remotely commented about how patheticly managed this conference is and how it is devoid of anything that would qualify as leadership. From the Commissioners office to the ADs and university presidents around...
Two biggest takeaways:
1) Muller isn't recruiting competitively even with other Valley programs let alone other good mid-major programs. He's getting basically nobody from Illinois.
2) The small handful of decent recruits he is able to lure to ISU leave, leaving him with huge talent gaps and...
The thing I keep thinking about with the transfer portal stuff is.....if everyone is just using each other for their own benefit.....and no one has any equity in anything except for themselves.....then why should I care? Why pay attention? Why go to games or even come onto this board?
Hey everybody. Older I get the less important this all seems. Especially when you consider we lost to Loyola twice by 30....and Loyola would probably be a 15 pt underdog to Illinois. That’s how irrelevant ISU basketball has become.
so go outside. It’s the last 60-degree day for a while...
ISU game threads are 2 pages long and 1 of those 2 pages are about Drake and Loyola.
Still no defense
Still no toughness
Still no identity
Average talent. you have to ask yourself....is the ISU job still even a good job?
Moser and Wardle have the recruiting advantage now. Mullins getting...
I think the first thought would be:
how far has the program fallen to have ever gotten to a point where Drake.....Drake.....would ever be so heavily dominantly favored to beat Illinois State by this much. Like what are all the things that had to happen for that to be possible? That list must...
Starting to think the only kid who can really change things for ISU is Fleming. Once things slow down for him hopefully he takes over the team and has the ball in his hands the most.
Horne and Strong better off the ball. Reeves is a stand in the corner type player.
we are just going to have...
Mopping floor with SIU tonight again. Will be 13-0.
first half stats against SIU tonight.
-Rebounding margin +13
-8 assists. 6 turnovers.
you are starting to see why teams like Loyola and Drake win. Because they are disciplined, fundamentally sound, unselfish, team players who value...
pretty mind blowing.
drake has experienced backcourt but nobody saw 12-0 and a thrashing of SIU coming.
you have to wonder....it Devries was coaching Mullers players how much better would Mullers players be?
I think one of Mullers biggest weaknesses is that he still values starting the players who practice well/hard.....like his team is in 4th grade or something.
He just needs to play the best players.
iSUs starters should be
get the ball into Dusan and spread...
