If any fan who does not do Twitter wants to ask a question, post the question here in this thread, and I will relay the question to Coach Wardle under your name (or anonymously if you prefer)!

And remember, he will not be able to answer any questions about specific recruits.

we also owe Delaware one!

The understatement of the millenium. I hope BU mops the floor with those Chickens to make up for the last two years. If possible, they need to run up the score on them.

For those who haven't seen it, here are today's (Wednesday 9/27) questions and answers from Coach Wardle-

Question #1-
Coach Wardle: are we gonna full-court press more this year with more depth & experience?

Coach Wardle's answer-
"Yes! You will see us press little more & be more aggressive, especially defensively. We will also do a little more trapping than year ago"
https://twitter.com/bradleyumbb/stat...31930165612545


Question #2-
what has been the biggest off-season focus? Also the city & I are beyond grateful & are behind this team 100%.

Coach Wardle's answer-
"Developing leadership & player accountability. I tell our guys player-led teams beat coach-led teams. We need it this year & years to come"
https://twitter.com/bradleyumbb/stat...33448289759232


Question #3-
What is this teams biggest strength and biggest weakness?

Coach Wardle's answer-
"Strength is versatility & work ethic. Have guys who ❤️ to play. Also can match up in lots of ways- can play small, big, skilled & athletic"
"Weakness is overly passionate. Have to control emotions better & not let small things get us. Helps to have experience now to deal w/ that"

Coach Wardle's answer-
(1-of-2)"I love our depth and it's not who starts but who finishes ..."

So the leaders for potential starting slots right now are Darrell Brown, Jr., Nate Kennell, Jojo McGlaston, Donte Thomas, and Koch Bar. So 2 seniors and 3 sophomores.

Thanks Coach, for the answers to fans' questions!
Bradley team practices begin tomorrow (Sat. Sept. 30).
