Hello inside Redbird Arena for Retro "Day" game between ISU and SIU. Redbirds were wearing warmups with block I and State along with regular shorts. Will they change to candy striped shorts for the game? We shall see. OK, let's have some questions. I'm sure there are many after the loss at Bradley on Tuesday. Fire away, gang (and don't make fun of my glasses, Buckeye Girl!)
Anthony Beane Jr. going through the layup line for Salukis. Beane would have helped the Redbirds if things didn't shake down differently last May. He's a good kid and glad to see him doing well with SIU.
Gotta admit, like the music in RBA better than that stuff they usually play. Of course, I'm 53 and went to disco bars "in the day." Haha
I don't think so. Coach is like a parent. If you tell your kid this is gonna be punishment for doing something and he does it and you don't follow through, not a good message. I applaud Muller for what he did. Would have been easy to let Hill play in second half, but he stood his ground. This was about more than a basketball game.
I say ISU will play the SIU Salukis in the 7-10 game at 8:30 p.m. on March 7, with the winner getting Wichita State at 6 p.m. the next day.
Anyone with BracketBusters prediction? I'm going with ISU at Loyola. I was watching Loyola vs. GB in the press room. Porter Moser looks the exact same as he left six years ago.
Wait, Bradley vs. Missouri State
He walked away and dropped some bad words about the call he didn't think the ref heard, but did. Be quiet and go on to next play.
Yes, there is. The Sycamores are really the surprise in the league. I owe it to having the best PG in league, plus Greg Lansing is really a good coach. He seems to take what talent he has and works around that. There's definitely a chance Trees finish 1 or 2. Actually, that would be OK for Redbirds to get them in quarterfinals. Probably better than Creighton or Wichita. Actually, the team I think ISU doesn't want to play is Creighton.
I'm not sure. Will try to check.
Don't worry. He has plenty of fire and intensity. He might not jump up and down on the sidelines, but he has it. Give him time to get his bearings as the head coach. It does take some time.
I was not in South Padre. Sorry.
Tyler Brown is in starting lineup, folks.
No, they wouldn't give me a sneak peek. I expect the candy striped shorts. Why have Retro Night without those?
Fans always lose some faith in coaches. Part of the game, and Dan knows that. But he has a long term plan and is not going to deviate for it just for short term success. Good video on RBA screen right now about ISU history.
They have lots of players from past eras and will be introducing them during timeouts
Just saw the players in tunnel with the shorts ... yessssssssssssssssss
This is an experienced team and went 9-3 against good noncon sked. They should be better and everyone knows it.
Great crowd today. Game on Comcast with Pegler and Morris on call. Follow my accounts on Twitter at Pg_Benson. Until Wed from Drake. Bye!
