Re: Signing Date 12/19

Watched his HUDL .Man the kid can hit. Boogers were flyin. He played the Sam in their 4-3 but I could see him coming off the edge for sure. Per your suggestion I watched his HUDL. I can't say I saw any boogers flyin'. At one point I thought I saw some saliva, runny snot or other non-specified bodil...

Signing Date 12/19

It's now less than two weeks until the first signing date (December 19) for football. We have an impressive group verbally committed. I'm excited about Tennessee running back Xavier Myers and hopeful that our tailback tradition will continue. It will also be interesting to see who plans on arriving ...

Re: MVFC All-Conference

Great post fourth. I would have just said that Matthews was our leading tackler and the defense was good. You put the meat on those bones. :clap:

Re: OT: Former Players

That INT may look like good fortune but Harris has always come up with big plays. Lots of DT's could knock that pass down but Harris made the catch and ended the drive - and the game.

Re: Purdue's Jeff Brohm to Louisville

Where does it say that the Lovie Smith 2-year extension is guaranteed? Pic of the signed contract on-line or it didn't happen. Just another desperate AD engaged in damage control until a change can be made.

Re: 2019 Wish List and Expectations

There's a silver lining to the 6-5 record when it comes to pursuing the wish list. This is an important time of year for recruiting. The P5 FBS schools are wrapping things up and there are always outstanding players out there that aren't spoken for. It takes time to weed through and find them and br...

Re: SEASON predictions

Chi-Bird wins the season prediction thread. I missed badly by expecting 8-3 but almost every else did too except for a couple of Kool-Aid addicts. Anytime I miss a season prediction by 2 games it becomes a self-requirement that I get at least 12 hours of seclusion and meditation designed to facilita...

Re: 2019 NFL Draft

If the Rodgers/Walker story happened as written here I don't know how that would be an attitude problem on his part. As a free agent you are only going to get a few chances to impress. If the QB doesn't throw to you when you're open then you aren't going to make the team so you might as well speak up.

Re: 2019 Wish List and Expectations

I see WR as our biggest need. Schnell will leave a void and there was a drop off after him. Edgar is a building block and Haley will likely stay ahead of a crop of promising freshmen but I think we need to bring in someone that can play right away (FBS or Juco). He needs to be hard to cover and he n...

Re: From #7 to #1

Remember Brian Adams is the speedy freshman that arrived on scholarship, not Brown. Adams only played in one game so he wasn't saving a redshirt by not playing against YSU. I'm not sure why he didn't play but it's a cause for concern. I think RB will always be a high turnover position.

Re: 2019 NFL Draft

Schnell has a slight chance. We'll see how he does in workouts. I've always maintained that scouts put way too much emphasis on measureables and combine numbers. For me the best receiver of the Spack era isn't Cam Meredith or Spencer Schnell. It's Tyrone Walker and I'll always believe that he could ...

Re: Defensive Philosophy Chage: QB pressure and Picks ???

Our defensive schemes seem to have shifted over the Spack era from trying to make the huge defensive plays for loss, with downside being guys not always staying home (containment) and going for big play that might not turn out .. sort of over-pursuing a big play can lead to a near sack or big TFL, ...

Re: Indiana St.

One more leftover from Terre Haute I wouldn't say that Braxton Haley couldn't catch a cold but I will say that he can't catch a break. He finally caught a pass late in the Ind St. game and the catch was credited to Luther Kirk. If they ever need a spotter for our games I'm available. I don't know mu...

The feel good story of the day. Kevin Brown a walk-on freshman running back from E. St. Louis becomes THE man in the Illinois State backfield. When camp started back in August Brown wasn't even on the GoRedbirds roster. He was in camp. Just not on the roster. Also when Hatfield was converted from QB...

Re: BEAT THE TUX BIRDS....GO, REDBIRDS!...ISU vs YSU..Seniors!!

I called on Robinson and Matthews to finish strong. Robinson was back in beast mode and Matthews had lots of key tackles but the Man of the Day was Mitchell Brees. Perhaps the best game I've seen by a Redbird Safety. Way to SeniorUp. :clap:
