  • Warning for Kaiser

    Kaiser:

    Being fair-minded, I have followed your promotion of SLU basketball this season with heightened interest. Yes, it turns out you were right, that Mizzou's basketball team was pitiful, but now you're going to have to prove that SLU is worthy.

    I know Iowa basketball. I follow Iowa basketball. Iowa basketball is a friend of mine. And Mr. Kaiser, if your overachieving little group of roundballers can't beat the University of Iowa, then all of your hyping of the Billikens will be just more hot air.

    Consider: Iowa's senior center broke his foot (or ankle, or something). The other big senior just up and quit (that's right, he upped) in the middle of the season. The star point guard sat out last year after admitting to sexually assaulting a member of the women's basketball team. And the three-point specialist is from Dugger, Indiana. Dugger, Indiana!

    To top it off, they are coached by Steve Alford, who has copied Bobby Knight's ability to find slow, beefy role players but who has so far been unable to find a star to go with them. Let's put it this way: He makes Quin Snyder look like a Duke grad.

    It's time to put up or shut up. If SLU doesn't win by 20, you owe me something pretty.

    And a certain group of nerds (mostly Croatian nerds, but nerds nonentheless) swept the season series from Iowa.

      Yeah, like THAT was hard.

      The amazing thing is, Iowa finished FOURTH in the Big Ten. Pound for pound, this is the worst Big Ten crop I've ever seen, although I think Wisconsin has the kind of well-coached team that could go pretty far.

        Really, I wouldn't want to play any of the three Big Ten teams. They're all dangerous. But yes, overall, the Big Ten was down this year.

        I really think some of that has to do with recent improvement from teams at the bottom of the conference (NU, Penn St., etc.). They're no longer cakewalks for the good teams, which might give and Illinois or Wisconsin an extra loss they wouldn't have had to worry about in the past.

        But I agree, KBF. If SLU gets swamped by another Big Ten also-ran -- for the second consecutive year -- then somebody's got some explaining to do.

          Soderberg is the best coach in America. Even if he hasn't won anything in the postseason.
          Asked what he would do differently in Iraq, Kerry said, "Right now, what I would do differently is, I mean, look, I'm not the president, and I didn't create this mess so I don't want to acknowledge a mistake that I haven't made."

            how about you guys all lick the collective apple sack of Billiken Nation? When was the last time a fourth ranked team didn't even make the tourney? Slu players have more heart and drive in their toenail clippings than the entirety of the Missouri basketball program. Add hard work ethic and a curriculum that doesn't allow woman beaters to transfer 24 credit hours in one summer, and you have a team that will go far in the NIT. I think we'll meet in the semis....you'll be eating our dust.
            Are you on the list?

              Since you can't measure heart and drive, I'll stick with rpi numbers to rank the teams. Mizzou'd season was the biggest disaster in history, although I don't think it was really a disaster, we were severely overrated, however even after a horrible year, our RPI was still better than SLU's.

              Bottom line is, both teams sucked this year.

                I didn't go to Missouri...I decided early on not to attend a second-rate J-school.

                  No way Mizzou gets that far. If they do, have the SLU players wear Kansas jerseys. That should do it.

                    Will Frerich's play tomorrow night? If not, they'll likely have big problems with those beefy Big 10 guys.

                    KBF, what kinda pretty things you spectin' from Kaiser? Can he borrow something from Reggie's closet?

                      correction...we also should have beaten SMS.

                      I don't know how you compare their schedules and their talent and say they both sucked, but whatever. Our season could have been better, yours was an unmitigated disaster.

                        OK, you got me.

                        Based on the number of games they should have won, it's a travesty that SLU did not make the NCAA tournament, where, I'm sure, they might have come close to winning the first game, which would then qualify them for a close loss in game 2, and on and on to almost winning the national championship.

                        What a magical year this could have been...

                          NO WAY

                          both teams did not suck. For the want of a nail, we beat Marquette AND Arizona. We had two weak teams on our schedule and they dragged us down, but c'mon. I can guarantee that if we played the same schedule, SLU would have a better record. MU would have gotten eaten alive by Cincy, UAB and Louisville. The ONLY game we played badly and SHOULD have won was in Charolette.
                          Which team didn't suck? Neither team made the tournament. Take your blinders off for a minute. Oklahoma St (6)., Texas (10), and Kansas (15) are collectively better than Cincy (11), UAB (33), and Louisville (24). Nice win over Marquette, their rpi is 83. Colorado was a better win than beating Marquette. Nice win over Arizona, rpi 41.

                          Since we'll count games that we SHOULD have won, Mizzou lost on a fluke play to Texas in overtime, Gonzaga in overtime, and kansas at the buzzer.

                          Both teams missed the tournament, that's a shitty year in my opinion.
