Bradley vs. Robert Morris Chicago Exhibition

Postby Majik45 » November 2nd, 2017, 7:33 am

Bradley rolled to a 30 point exhibition win last night over Robert Morris of Chicago. I didn't get a chance to make it to the game, but read that this team had a bunch of Juniors and was nationally ranked like 12th in the NAIA ranks.

Bradley did what they were supposed to do and dominated the game, and they were without Donte Thomas and Antoine Pittman, as they did not play because they violated some team rules. I don't remember the last time Bradley won both exhibition games they played so easily. Hopefully Bradley will surprise some people this year since we basically have everyone back from last year's squad, and now actually have upperclassmen on the roster. There is a lot of competition for playing time, and Wardle will have real options for the first time since he's been here.

Playing with a chip .We were picked 7th right? That’s a smack in the face. We are taking 3rd behind MSU and LU.

Bradley reminds me a lot of the 14-15 Loyola team that went to the CBI. Pretty sure they were picked 7th or 8th.

Lots of returning juniors with experience, a pair of seniors who've seen it all and wanna go out with the program better when they came in... I don't know if they're a third place team with so much up in the air with other teams (i have no clue where anyone will finish if i'm honest), but the more I've looked the more i think they'll surprise some folks!

Bradley wont be 3rd in anything this year.

When average players grow up into Juniors and Seniors, they're just that... average juniors and seniors.

They'll win more than last year, but aren't threatening for a bye in St. Louis anytime soon.

Please define "anytime soon".

Just how long will Bradley be stuck playing on Thursday?

Might not be a Thursday team this year. But you're also not in the top 3... yet.

Could turn it around, but I think it'll be with a different coach.

I think you'll finish in 6th this year.

I’m also interested in what Wardle has done or not done for you to think it won’t be him.


You are WRONG! It will be a long time before we are playing on Thursday again.

EC and KB make for a bright future upfront.
