Re: OVC Tournament chances.

Sports Illustrated seems to think you guys are the tourney sleeper. The sleeper: Eastern Kentucky. It’s a pretty steep drop from the OVC’s top four to the rest of the conference. The spotlight here falls on the Colonels, who play at the second-fastest pace in the country under first-year coach A.W....

Re: 1980's EKU Party School And Football Recruiting

I'm sure that helped for some people. Might have also turned off some mommas from letting their babies come to EKU. I think what aided recruiting the most in the 80s was the difference in academic qualification between I-A and I-AA. I-AA schools were able to land talented players that did not meet t...

Re: Belmont

KJ Bluford was actually a Neubauer recruit. I think you all kind of touch on something individually, that adds up to something to remember. Recruiting isn't just about finding talented players. It's also about making sure they fit in the puzzle. It's not just the head coach, the assistants need that...

Re: EKU AD - scheduling wtf..?

Here's my thoughts. Yes it is an unfortunate situation and who knows who is really responsible for the screw up. But these things happen and the All A is extremely important to the university. It is important enough to move 4 games off campus. Here's my complaint, and every single person in a leade...

Re: 83 ppg

Yep, those Dan McHale teams played outstanding defense ...

2017-18 ..... 76.5 .... 281
2016-17 ..... 75.2 .... 252
2015-16 ..... 79.1 .... 320

2013-14 ..... 70.9 .... 202
2012-13 ..... 65.8 .... 152
