Was anyone else unaware that they actually splice the numbers, letters, and graphics into the artificial surface? That is what they did, right? stlRB ... nice diversion from the touchy steroid topic .. until our Flip the Bird turf project, I had no clue whether that was spray paint, chalk, or a ove...

Re: Turf Updates

I was comparing the old Reggie to the new Reggie, it's definitely bigger, the old Reggie was a foot short of the 45 yard line, the new Reggie is a foot or so past the 45's.. Also the old Reggie was well short of the hash marks, the new one is almost right even with them.. I'm guessing 5-6 feet bigg...

Re: Game Times Announced

agree noon is bit too early for couple reasons .. earliest game times should be 1 or 2pm .. certainly 1pm is needed for late season due to sun setting.

Re: Turf Updates

Wow ..... Hancock has changed so much for the better. Someone mentioned west side needs fresh coat. I just recalled they put in all new aluminum seating the year before they demolished east side after 2011 for 2013 grand opening. So they have really spruced the place up with some very wise ... albei...

I'm sure the MVC has done the proper research and determined that moving the softball tournament to a pay platform can only increase coverage and viewership. clearly going to produce a windfall that can be used for leverage with the major networks once they're done counting all the money !!! then w...

Re: Coverage Strategy - Man, Ball, or Both

You guys watch more of this than I do. I just watched USD game last night. Catch technique. Man then ball. The way the game has evolved with RPO's and back shoulder passes I like the way we play it. Timmy, I wouldn't characterize it as "man then ball" .. more like "man then arms/hands" .. I believe...

Re: Coverage Strategy - Man, Ball, or Both

TR.. I have a lot of respect for your football insights. For me, it is about 2 things. First, finding some balance ... i suspect most teams have similar play the man approach in many situations. But then also allow corners to male more plays on the ball when they have their man guarded. I've seen to...

Re: Coverage Strategy - Man, Ball, or Both

Great topic .. let me clarify one thing. Our pass defense strategy and technique works very well against mediocre pass offences amd QBs. So it works very well in those situations. It is when we play QBs who can put it on the dime consistently .. Sometimes it works ok, most times not .
