Yeah but I don't think Little Rock was expected to be 300+ RPI bad. They were 241 last year and picked to finish 10/12 in Sun Belt again.

UALR was supposed to be one of the non-cupcakes.

Bradley's SoS is quietly turning into a bit of a woofer. We better carry a sterling record into MVC play to help everyone's SoS, because we might tank everyone's oSoS.

Maybe I'm just cranky because the team has to travel to Chicago State in a few days. :Bam:

Oh yeah I hate that game. We should buy it out. Could probably do it for about $20.

Did not see any of game tonight but Bradley comes off a 10 day layoff after a bad loss and absolutely dominates a bad team. They shoot 61% from the field and lots of people got minutes.

Good to see the team respond after JoJo was kicked off the team.

And some thought this Little Rock team would be a good expansion addition for the MVC to consider. I doubt that's still true.

Let's not hear any silliness about the BU-Little Rock game. With supposedly higher-tier Valley teams losing to the likes of SEMO and Charleston Southern at home and Oral Roberts on the road, how about some props for BU for beating the absolute snot out of a team like that? Wardle still has a bunch of freshmen and sophomores running around out there and they were men against boys last night. Bradley's most lopsided win against a DI opponent in 18 years. BU is fun to watch.

With SIUs injuries and inconsistencies, I think BU could be battling MSU, ISUred and Valpo for 3-6.

Right now its:
UNI
Loyola

MSU
ISUred
BU
Valpo

SIU
Evansville

Drake
ISUblue


This will all change by Sunday :Cheers:

I have no complaints about Bradley's schedule. They are a young team and still building. It would be foolish of Wardle to try and take on a highly challenging schedule. They are doing what they need to do-and that is win the games they have on their schedule.

No one expected an at-large candidacy out of the Braves, but they are setting themselves up nicely for W-L % in the non-conference, which makes them a solid team to play in conference. It's how the power conferences do it-have their middle to lower teams build gaudy non-conference schedules to give the illusion of top to bottom strength.

As it is they are looking like a solid middle of the conference team that can give the upper tier teams fits. Having that nice OOC record will mean a loss to the Braves in Peoria won't be as painful as if they had challenged themselves in the non-con and come into league play under .500. It's strategy that should be employed throughout the Valley-top teams schedule for possible at-larges, middle teams play solid but winnable games, re-building teams schedule light to rack up wins prior to conference.

Loyola is a contender, UNI is still a pretender in my eyes....I don't understand all the love for this team with very little depth

UNI goes 9 deep and has wins over SMU, NC State, UNLV, Arlington and will be favored to beat Iowa State on Saturday, has a 16 RPI and they're a pretender? Okay. I guess...

The difference is the Coach's pedigree, in my eyes until you do it once your are in my eyes a pretender.
