Re: Always A Brave - back this summer

All I know is if a recruit is bored and flipping around for something to watch, all the Bradley praise by the broadcasters can't hurt Bradley's recruiting and profile. They were knowledgeable and had nothing but good things to say about Bradley. Also when they keep mentioning a Bradley player was p...

Re: Always A Brave - back this summer

Transferring to a rival almost never happens at the college level, but isn’t uncommon in pro sports https://twitter.com/bpthebrave/status/1413143906359791621?s=21 Nothing wrong about him playing with our team, the ISU thing should never be a factor in supporting him.

Re: Always A Brave - back this summer

Fun game to watch as this years team was there and really were into it as after the AAB won they were celebrating out on the court together. The new players got to see how passionate the fans are at these games. The refs were horrible as far as calling too many fouls as every game I have seen the of...

I was thinking the same when I saw them on the news the other night. Lot of creaky knees out there.
There are, too bad they do not have a senior bracket. Great article in PJS about Tony Bennett today.

Re: Wardle and Player Development

Player development is a two way street, coaches usually tell the players what their weaknesses are and players are suppose to get in the gym during the off season and work on those weaknesses in order to get better. Coaches obviously do some one on one with players trying to improve their skills but...

I expect to have 3 scholarships to give out next season.

Re: BU recruiting 2022 and beyond

The 2022 list gets larger every day yet I doubt Bradley will have no more then 3 rides to give out. I think I could guess which 3 players would be leaving based on lack of time. We will lose one player for sure as he only has this season left . Very great problem to have moving forward.

Re: BU recruiting 2022 and beyond

The kids now days just think differently but in all honesty I have zero idea on how that impacts BU. I'm going to guess that BW's style of making his teams a true family atmosphere will help and being very genuine. Last year will be remembered as an anomaly. At least that is what I hope. I think al...

The Cardinals are a bad team. YES they are at this time do to all the injuries. The Cubs pitching staff is not built for the playoffs so it will be interesting in what they do before the trade deadline.

That is how I see him too except he handles the ball a lot better. Jayson needs to be much improved this season in order to get more playing time.
