One Man's Ceiling Is Another Man's Floor
Jan 16, 2018 - 3:15 PM - by Swampy Meadows
Swampy Meadows's Avatar WEST BLOOMFIELD (MI) -- In his 1973 album There Goes Rhymin’ Simon songwriter Paul Simon included a ditty called “One Man’s Ceiling Is Another Man’s Floor” and that about sums up the situation with your Dayton Flyers.

The VCU game marked the near pinnacle of perfection in basketball execution for the Red and Blue. About the only thing that could have made it better is if Joey Gruden had nailed both of his three point attempts. At the same time, it is safe to say... [Read More]

Hit And Run
Jan 04, 2018 - 2:52 PM - by Swampy Meadows
Swampy Meadows's Avatar WEST BLOOMFIELD (MI) -- To stick with the baseball analogy employed in the previous “FTS”, if the Dayton Flyers’ Duquesne debacle was a “swing and miss” then their SBU victory was most assuredly a “hit and run.” The Red and Blue hit the Bonnies upside the head for the better part of 40 minutes and ran away with a much-needed, end-to-end win to even their season and conference records at 7-7 and 1-1, respectively.

Swing And Miss
Dec 31, 2017 - 10:42 AM - by Swampy Meadows
Swampy Meadows's Avatar PITTSBURGH (PA) -- The University of Dayton Flyers opened their A-10 slate on the road and faced the improving Duquesne Dukes in the always challenging confines of the on-campus Palumbo Center.

It did not go well.

With students off on break, one can see why Duquesne AD Dave Harper, the former former UD VP for Advancement, opted to play the game here rather than paying rent for the spacious PPG Arena.

As always, a road game vs. Duquesne... [Read More]

Catching up with Mark Adams, ESPN Color Analyst
Dec 22, 2017 - 9:59 AM - by Swampy Meadows
Swampy Meadows's Avatar ANN ARBOR (MI) -- Most of us probably look at a guy like Mark Adams, college basketball hoops color analyst for ESPN and think “Boy what a glamorous gig – I wish I could have his job.” What we don’t see are the hours of prep work that go into making the guy we know as “The Hometown Coach” one of the most knowledgeable and well-prepared voices in college basketball. “FTS” spent some time with Coach Adams when he was in Ann Arbor to cover the UM/Alabama A&M tilt for ESPNU, in an...

Swampy Meadows's Avatar WEST BLOOMFIELD (MI) -- I texted my fellow UD grad brother yesterday to remind him to catch the Flyers vs. Auburn on CBS Sports Net. Altho he is a UD hoops fan he is not nearly as rabid as I am. I told him “You have to see Kostas play.”

Yeah for all of 28 seconds.

The start of the game was a microcosm of the entire evening. Kostas easily won the opening tip and then this happened:
