Exclamation Time To Put Up!

Good time for BU to go out and win on the road in MVC. String some conference W's together.

nice to have an additional prep day compared to the Ramblers. We generally perform better with our prep time being sufficient.

Would be really big for the Braves to steal this one on the road but I can't say I'm all that confident that we can pull it off after the way we played at Evansville...

Sounds great but have you checked the home record of all ten Valley teams? No team has more then 3 losses at home and Loyola is the only team w/a raod record over 500.
I'm saying BU can't win tomorrow, and I would be extremely happy,but road wins are going to be real tough on the road for any Valley team this year.

Weíre due to shoot the lights out. Wardle >Moser. we have to rebound and take care of the ball.make our free throws. I hope DBJ attackís the rim. He might score. He might get fouled. Or if he misses you have Donte and Childs on the glass . Hopefully Bar has one of his better games.

It could be a depressing sad day. But for now Iím optimistic.

We got something cookin if we Win tomorrow.

I'll be there, and I know quite a number of Bradley people who will be there.


BTW, Loyola is a 6 point favorite.

I will be watching from the comforts of my warm house. Hoping that the Braves play hard, shoot well, and keep it close.... and maybe even steal one on the road. Go Braves!

We just need to show up and at least be competitive on the road. Right now a win would be a bonus. If we can get that road win it could springboard us to a top 4 finish in the Valley. If we canít win in the road weíll be fortunate not to be in the play in game again.

Here we go again!!! Unbelievable how we canít play on the road. Canít make a shot, get a rebound, or defend ANYONE! Inside or outside. Our guards canít defend their guards and canít stop the Freshman Krautwig.(sp?) Hopefully, they dig in and make it respectable.

We went south after Childs got two quick fouls and sat most of the half. Another slow start by KB. Too many missed open shots and getting beat on drives. Best part of half was DC getting significant TV time.

I mean, if we could even be ďinĒ games it would be nice. However, as soon as we get on the road, we get blown out. Not even close.

I know some will use the excuse that we are still "rebuilding", but there is still no excuse for such an embarrassing, flawed, error-filled performance. There was a time not too many years ago when we would never see Bradlay get blown out repeatedly like we keep seeing. Then starting with the Geno Ford years, it became the expected routine, and it doesn't look like we're past that phase yet.

With exception of maybe Childs the rest of the players would be at best, reserves on a good team. Three years into a rebuild and itís time for an infusion of talent. Iím sure they are fine young men. Just not enough talent to be a good team.

The year before Geno showed up, Bradley started the conference season 0-11. The winning ways were already gone.
