A student at Bradley University has a package sent to him at the Student Apartment Complex building, and an email sent to the student said the package was being stored at the student security office. From where it was stolen. From the security office.
A custodian at the Renaissance Coliseum, 1600 W. Main. reportedly was assaulted by a drunk, who was arrested and handed over to the Peoria Police Department.
So, who just walked into Starbucks? Bradley University’s new men’s basketball coach, a bunch of red-shirted assistants and some very tall high school looking kids. I suppose he’ll be handing out cash and hookers later in the evening …

He went 9-24 for the Bradley Braves, a team whose boosters expect the team to go to the NCAA ever other year. But his worst crime, I gather, is that he was hired under the tenure of the current president, who boosters have determined hates all athletics.
Kudos to Bradley University provost David Glassman. He’s been promoted to President of Eastern Illinois University. So he’s been abandoning the private college setting to a college with a reputation for being a small “public ivy” setting. EIU is a small school with a renowned zoology department, a very decent teacher education department and a kick-ass journalism department (don’t let the fact that I graduated from EIU sway you).
