New Episode-March to the Arch Podcast

The All-MVC Level
I can give a quick preview (mine personally). Loyola, Evansville, the Jailbirds, SIU, and Valpo look terrible so far and I don't have much expectations for them. The jury is still out on us and Drake. MSU struggled against a D3 school. BU and UNI look decent on paper. Conference will be terrible again. 1 bid league. Stay out of Thursday.

For the record I am looking forward to basketball season, but I basically view the season as 11 or 12 exhibition games with 18 games you need to do well enough in to stay out of Thursday. There are only 3 games that matter and they are in St Louis. You just need to improve throughout the season and give yourself a chance to win it.

Based on Wed. night's win over Belmont (which has a good nucleus back from last year's NCAA qualifier), I'm not as critical of the Redbirds. The Aces are a "wait & see" until mid-January when they'll have their 6'9" Pitt transfer in step to offer interior defense & rebounding.

Great episode guys.

Enjoyed hearing Michael Admire's perspective on Drake and the Valley. Surprised Baker had some good things to say about the Sycamores :)

And loved hearing the Sycamores picked to win their next two games.

Not sure how many Sycamore fans are listening to the podcast (maybe a lot, maybe a few)...but for those who haven't listened...it's certainly worthwhile.

Thanks for the kind word and for listening. As we did with Michael Admire/Drake, an Indiana State episode is on our short-list to do soon, hopefully the cards align for that.

PS - I am warming up to Indiana State. Random that it comes after and 0-2 week, but the Iowa trip is no joke. At least you have this going for you, Illinois State comes to town, and like I said on the podcast, Illinois State is not allowed to win in Terre Haute.

We do a "trust fall" segment, which was fun, as well as throw out a great suggestion from one of our listeners, Thank you Joe.....10 player team, 2 Centers-4 Forwards-4 Guards and only one player per MVC team. You can find my list on twitter (@MarchArchBaker) and post your own thoughts on that thread or here. Fun show as always, check it out!
