Travis Ford has Saint Louis Recruiting at an Unprecedented Level - Jeff Eisenberg - The Dagger - October 26, 2016

Saint Louis’ Travis Ford has been out-recruiting both Dayton and VCU. The Billikens’ immediate future looks very bright, but the 47-year-old Ford played basketball for Kentucky, and was head coach at Oklahoma State for 8 seasons. Ford has no previous ties to Saint Louis, and may be eyeing a return to big-time basketball if he is successful in rebuilding the Billikens into an A10 contender.

St Louis is Catholic? and all these years I was mislead to think they were Jehovah Witnesses.

I could not find any information concerning prospect official visits to Saint Louis University which may have been scheduled for this past weekend, but it was not a good weekend for Travis Ford to host anyone.

Saint Louis University is having financial problems, but they are presently being addressed:

Layoffs expected as SLU looks to fix budget deficit - St. Louis Post-Dispatch - January 23, 2017

SLU to cut 4 percent of staff, administrators next week - St. Louis Post-Dispatch - March 4, 2017
ST. LOUIS • Staff and administrators at St. Louis University are expected to find out Tuesday whether they are among the roughly 4 percent who will lose their jobs. That 4 percent represents about 120 employees, according to a campus-wide email from SLU President Fred Pestello on Friday. The impending layoffs have been a much-discussed issue on campus for months as school leaders addressed an ongoing budget crisis.

SLU faces a $16 million budget deficit from this past fiscal year after a decline in enrollment and an uptick in expenses. The trend is projected to continue unless cuts are made, according to university leaders.

Meanwhile, the University of Dayton is thriving and making money faster than they can spend it:

The University of Dayton will welcome its largest and most diverse class in school history this fall - University of Dayton - August 14, 2017
More than 2,250 first-year students from 41 states and 16 countries begin classes Aug. 23.

“We are excited for this record-breaking class to join our Flyer family,” said Jason Reinoehl, vice president for strategic enrollment management. “They chose the University for its strong national reputation as a top-tier Catholic research institution and we look forward to helping them use their education and experience at UD to make a positive impact on the world.”

UDRI CELEBRATES ‘REMARKABLE YEAR’ – 60th ANNIVERSARY AND RECORD REVENUES - University of Dayton - September 1, 2016
On the cusp of its 60th anniversary, the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) has extra cause for celebration: a record-breaking year in annual sponsored research and significant milestones reached in cumulative sponsored research and employee population.

For the first time, researchers at UDRI performed more than $100 million in research and development in a single year. Combined with research performed by faculty, sponsored research at UD totalled $117.6 million in fiscal year 2016 – a leap of nearly 20 percent more than the previous year – pushing cumulative sponsored research past the $2 billion milestone. To put a little icing on the anniversary cake, the number of employees working at UDRI topped 500 for the first time as well.

Oh, I don't know...I see all of that FF posted on the "religious affiliations" thread and it makes me think, "Jesus, Mary and Joseph, bless that poor, lonely bastard's heart because he clearly has no friends." So in that vein, on topic or no?

How are all of these posts on Dayton and St. Louis relevant to Big East basketball? Shouldn't this drivel be on the Off Topic Board? It's easy to see why this guy has been banned on both the Dayton and A10 boards.

What do St. Louis and Dayton both have in common? Both recently hired P5 coaching rejects.

This is a thread about Catholic Basketball Schools, with a lot of information about Butler University on Page 3.

On Page 2 of the thread, you can read posts about The Dominicans' and Jesuits' roles in the Spanish Inquisition, Tomás de Torquemada, Drawing and Quartering, Guy Fawkes, great Bourbon, Papal Suppression of the Jesuit Order, and Braveheart - none of which drew any objections.

But the trophy for the Most Off-Topic Post on the thread to date goes to this post, which isn't even correct:

They also aided Zorro, so I will call it even.

All of which are more interesting and less redundant than your drivel...
