Re: More of This

I'm guessing I'm not the only one that would need to look this up so here is the google search result ;) "For example, if there are one running back and two tight ends on the field, the grouping is called 12 personnel.

Re: Offensive backfield depth

Well, I don't disagree that the failure to bring a 4-5 year QB from freshman class to a successful career is a weakness in Spack's program, but you also have to give him some credit for "recruiting" Roberson and Davis (anyone else I'm forgetting?) - I mean, they didn't just show up on the curb. Som...

Re: Offensive backfield depth

I have mentioned this before on this board that Coach Spack is just not an offensive or QB guy...he is just not. No matter what happens or how many players the Birds lose he turns out good defense and defensive coaches love a solid run game and ball control. Coach Spack is beginning to remind me ve...

Re: Good job on Spring practice coverage

The good news is most of us probably take the quality for granted at this point. Cant recalled when they started The Next Step sponsored by Country Financial... but that is done really well too.

Nice work to all involved in these efforts.

Re: Offensive backfield depth

Except that some of these "QBs" were recruited as athletes. They were given a chance to make it as a QB, before realizing they'd play some other position. I remember Todd Berry saying that he recruited lots of high school QBs knowing that they weren't suited for the position in college. By being th...

Re: Spring Awards

Proctor continues to put up nice numbers and clearly getting the most reps with Robinson being protected.

Some tall receivers put up some numbers plus Gillum getting some love. QBs doing pretty well against very good defense that goes 2 deep with quality.

So far so good ... hope we stay healthy.

Only disagreement with TR ... though I have not seen Bryce Jefferson throw yet, other than HS video .... highly doubt his arm is as suspect as Broadnax at FCS level .... if it is, I'm even more concerned with our HS QB recruitment. Dual threat QBs are helpful .... but they have to be able to throw ...

Looks to be a good deal financially but I don't see anyone getting excited about playing Dixie State. Better than the NAIA game last season but who really cares about playing Dixie State? I have one question though. Why does it seem that ISU only looks central and west for non conference games? NAU...

Re: "Indoor Facility ... #1 priority" ... AD Larry Lyons

So we traveled to Ball St in 2013 instead of hosting because Hancock was not ready. Then picked up a 2nd patsy in 2014 .. not an NAIA team but a bad FCS team. We got a buyout at least ... but yes it was disappointing.

Re: "Indoor Facility ... #1 priority" ... AD Larry Lyons

The proposed location of the Indoor Practice Facility is the grass practice field located just to the northwest of Hancock so we don't need to buy any land, we wouldn't lose parking and we don't need to tear down Horton which is still very actively in use. Agree. while I hate the thought of losing ...
