Salukis Still Can’t Get Catch a Break
CARBONDALE-It was another agonizing defeat for the Salukis after a poor showing against regional rival Saint Louis University Billikens.
I could write to you all about positives from the game, but this time I can’t. After the Dawgs were upset against one of the worse D-2 school’s in the country, expectations were at a minimal for Tuesday night’s game.
Once again the Salukis were out coached, and were put into a system that has not worked since the 2008-2009 basketball season. It is clear that once games that mattered rolled… Continue reading

CARBONDALE-The Salukis Men’s Basketball team was the only winner this week at SIU asides from Hanger 9’s Adult Swim Carnival. But with the preseason now over, SIU has something positive to look forward to with the upcoming basketball season.
After watching the Dawgs crush division 2’s Missouri S&T 97-65. I wasn’t too sold on the play coming from everyone after a very sloppy start in the first half with the amount of missed shots to start the game, but after awhile it all… Continue reading
Sam Donets’ take of the Saluki MBB team.
Justin Bocot did exactly what I expected him to do by being aggressive by shooting the ball and drawing fouls. During the first half it felt like he was at the line every two minutes. Also I liked how he finished a lot of plays and moved the ball pretty well. His break out season hopefully will come this year. I almost got scared for a minute when he was very slow to get up after a hard foul on his missed dunk in the 2nd half.
Mamadou Seck was a… Continue reading

Nobody was expecting SIU to waltz into the UNI Dome Saturday and pull off the upset against the #2 Northern Iowa Panthers. Some of us weren’t expecting the Salukis to stay within three scores of the top team in the Valley.
But the Saluki defense did what many others couldn’t, keeping the potent UNI offense to 17 points while they held Walter Payton award candidate Tirrell Rennie to 189 all-purpose yards. The only problem with that is the offense didn’t show up again, and the Salukis lost 17-7.
The defense did their job, much like they did against North Dakota… Continue reading

I am sitting here waiting for ESPN’s new documentary “Catching Hell” to begin, aimed at the controversy of Steve Bartman and his infamous incident in left field that supposedly cost the Chicago Cubs Game 6 of the National League Championship Series, and I come across a replay of the full game. Cubs vs.FloridaMarlins, Game 6 on October 14, 2003. I stop to reflect back as I’ve got a few minutes to kill.
Wrigley Field looks immaculate. The ivy seems at its greenest on this cold October night, as fans all around Wrigley Field stand on their… Continue reading
