I miss Canned Goods & Ammo.

He and lab_warrior were blasts from the past.  I also witnessed some good Hoopaloop in those threads.

Majerus could win with "good enough" players and he did that at several different schools. Other coaches need to recruit. SLU has not had a good recruiter, well, next to never. Porter Moser recruited most of Majerus' players while Chris Herriman recruited the Australians. I would be thrilled if Marquette could have a Majerus at SLU program. Hopefully Marquette can get it going and keep it going under Wojo.

Majerus took the SLU job because there were new commitments to the program. Richard Chaiffetz' money. $81 million new Arena on campus., etc...

Then it is about hiring a coach that can recruit. Enter Travis Ford. Ford quickly hires Corey Tate, ex St. Louis Eagles AAU coach, (Thanks to the generous donations of former Eagle Bradley Beal, the team has changed its name to Bradley Beal Elite) former Mizzou Tiger player and coach, and former Juco coach.  Tate has delivered Gordon, Goodwin, Thatch, and is on many others. They also added French whom Marquette also recruited. Larry Hughes of 40pts on Mike Bargen fame at the BC is a regular at practice and games. So they are getting players, and we'll see about player development and x's and o's as it goes.

It takes new coaches 3-5 years to get it going. 3 is short, 4 is average, 5 is long.  This is season one for Ford. He inherited a mess.

SLU just built two new dorms well over $100 million and they will be renovating a third one. They will also be adding a new $500 million hospital. And, they will be overseeing $1billion in new 400 acre development near campus.

And SLU no longer has to be concerned about its previously departed school President.

Life is trending upward there.

We became SLU.

SLU became DePaul.

I'm still on da give Wojo more time wagon 'cuz of da chitstorm he inherited. Loved da HE signin', but witout da asst coach out der hustlin', not sure watt da hell talent level wood bee in dis program write now. Steve is seein' skills dat I just don't see. Subsequently, he's put tagether a squad wit like abilities and like deficiencies. One of da reasons dey r weak defensively is 'cuz ders no quickness as a team. Deyr slow to da ball and can't beet anyone off da dribble. Plus wee need some dudes wit attitude. Got a bunch of choir boys, and sopranos at dat.
I wish da younguns here could experience and understand watt we old cockers here mean when wee rap Warrior basketball. 'Cuz, day have no clue. Simply graspin' at straws and silver linin's, ai na?



Fascinating.   I did not realize there was a Google translate app for Milwaukee lingo!

I'm around when they lose, which is more often then they should be for my tastes, especially at home. It's tiring.

You're right, snowflake, you deserve more. They owe you.

I did go back and find bma's take-down of ners.  Made the whole search worth it.

A "bma" came back, but it was just Chicos.

In going through some of these threads to find this, I realize that there have been many times that the dissension and accusations on this board have been every bit as bad as they are now.

That's good stuff.

Funny that he was ripping Ners for fallating Buzz ... and within a few years Ners spent months and months attacking Buzz over Awesome Dawson and other such stuff. Love it.

Let's not forget about wetness.

And moisture
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.
