    Transfer Portal thread

    I don't know if I need to post this, but at least I can get it out there and off my mind and can consider any comments you folks have in response. I just don't want to come off like I'm bashing any one individual publicly since I swore off on doing that several years ago. I said on the first...

    2022 Offseason Thread

    I understand that the need for "marketing" is what's behind all this. That's why I thought I needed to say I will not be on board with any of the "me too" crap. Even if it's only seen by you folks. As I recall from my Marketing 101 (Prof Kaminsky I believe - known to my floor mates as the F**...

    2022 Offseason Thread

    I need to chime in on the "Cult" thing. What I think is cool about the "Cult" label is that it grew from an honest comment made by Schmidt, and it fits very well our fan base. It wasn't created by some branding consultant. Nothing to run from, in my opinion. I was going to sarcastically...

    2022 Recruiting

    There are big schools with bigger name "Journalism" degrees than Bona. Syracuse came to mind immediately (ugh) and then Northwestern. I find it curious that he announced his entry into the portal relatively late. Taking into account comments that were made regarding Collins at SLU...

    Transfer Portal thread

    For a myriad of reasons, I have felt for some time that I would prefer all 5 guys move on after this year. This was their year to "run it back," and we saw the results. I don't think another year in Schmidt's system would be of benefit to most of them. I would not hold it against Kyle or Osun...

    NIT 2022

    Ha. I made up my mind a long time ago and have said for years I won't root for any team named after a state (and a few cities too). It actually frees up a lot of time for me at this time of the year.

    I already left you a compliment on the other board, but in case you don't go back: a work of art.

    It wouldn't do any good even if someone did. It's a sanctioned talking point.

    The Bonnies: 2021-2022 Season Thread

    With Northeastern being canceled, the team needs to take to heart the lesson that you never know what will happen. Give your all in every practice and game because you may never get another chance.

    Bonnies vs. UNI (Sat. 11/27/21 at 2:00)

    Ultimately the decisions stop at Schmidt, but I wonder which of the assistants was assigned the scouting and prep for UNI.

    Bonnies vs. UNI (Sat. 11/27/21 at 2:00)

    Sorry that I am echoing some previous points, but I screamed about 2 things continuously yesterday 1) Bona's defense did not match at all with what UNI was executing, and 2) Shoon's performance was among the most lacking that I can remember seeing from him. On the first item, I believe Schmidt...

    The Charleston Thread

    I believe we can predict with some confidence that this will be the game BSU's 3 point shooting heats up, right? So, our guys are going to have to offset that with sticky defense and their own good shooting. I assume Lofton and Shoon will remember Cayman as well as I, and several others, do...

    Are you saying 2/19 is 80's Weekend? I assume you have the inside info. I'm just an 80's wannabe.

    I doubt it's Bill, but I'd lay money on the proposition that he is know to you all under another name.

    I once had a Brett and a Brent on my team. What a nightmare.

    The Bannedwagon Thread

    As a boomer, I will say it's well placed. I just remarked to my wife last week that the people that used to be cool are now the assholes. I'm not going to go on (just deleted a paragraph of ranting about selfishness and entitlement). It's not my intention to hijack this like happens over there.

    The Bonnies: 2021-2022 Season Thread

    Also, for those that may be inclined to donate, a great guy from my class passed on this past winter. The group of classmates he was a part of that regularly got together has established a fund with the University to endow a (partial) scholarship for a walk-on each year in his memory since he...

    Bonnies vs. GW (Fri. 2/26/21 at 6:00 pm)

    I have been in the default mode of assuming an NCAA metric is going to favor the "power conference" teams, and haven't paid much attention to NET, or its details (as much as they can be known), as a result. I have to say now, though, that maybe it's superior to RPI in the sense that yesterday's...

    The Bonnies: 2020-2021 Season Thread

    I came to my conclusion last night, before signing on and reading all the good stuff here, that we want to play Davidson (already scheduled), UMass and Dayton. I believe this makes things a bit more equitable while giving us a chance to win a few marquee games. UMass should have to play any...

    Bonnies vs. Davidson (Sun. 02/21/21 at 3:30 pm)

    Got me, but you're getting old too ("up yours 79"). I had Gibbs on my mind from thinking about the 2016 game I guess.
