Re: St Xavier game .. DUMP IT !!

so MEAC is trying to coordinate this cluster-f--- with Hampton because they want to play Big South games next fall ... which means they would have cancel as many as 6 MEAC games. https://pilotonline.com/sports/college/norfolk-state/football/article_693115a6-a808-5f5d-a81a-b0c27891cd01.html I just po...

Re: St Xavier game .. DUMP IT !!

Hampton (6-5) is caught between a conference move and hasn't even posted their 2018 schedule .. they are currently MEAC and are slated to move to Big South .. so Hampton is trying to opt out o ftheir MEAC games, which is just plain stupid .. so maybe best to stay away. But if dust is still settling...

Re: St Xavier game .. DUMP IT !!

random thought .. any evidence that any reporter has asked Spack (or Lyons) about this STX game ??? It has to have been asked at some point.

Re: Elijah Smoot committed....

Cardinals .. Redbirds .. he committed, so I think it is a smoot point. :dance: WR who looks like he has some skills. Played at very small school with enrollment 362 and it shows in his highlights with some weak defenders. But he has good hands and speed looks pretty good. Give him a year or two in w...

Re: St Xavier game .. DUMP IT !!

UNI often plays two FBS for financial reasons. Would that be preferable to St. Xavier? Any available at this late date? given losses to our defense, this is not the year I would want to do that .. good possibility of going 1-2 in nonconf, before heading into MVFC gauntlet might also kill playoff ch...

Re: St Xavier game .. DUMP IT !!

Pretty simple buy out st Xavier and hit the road for a D1 game at Mississippi valley state. Time to bite the bullet ISU and spend the money to make this right. :text-+1: no brainer financial decision .. playing STX this season could likely be the reason we don't make playoffs. given where this team...

not a bad idea .. everyone should ask if there is an NCAA sanctioned game package .... that is, excluding St Xavier.

Re: Needs improvement: Red Zone Offense

agree on this and 3rd down conversions, where we were 9th despite having strong run game. Which says were were either predictable or in more 3rd and longs than most .. more likely a lot of both. Related to red zone production .. I think we have led MVFC in turnovers in the red zone 2 years in a row ...

Re: Davontae Harris

At the East-West Shrine allstar game, Davontae was listed as 5' 11 1/4" and 203 lbs. If you look at the top 35 CB prospects according to DraftTek, Davontae is in the 90th %-ile of weight. If you look at the top 22 Safety prospects, Davontae falls right in the middle. My guess is he could easily put ...

Re: National Signing Day 2018

Whoa. The Ivy League had 9 of the top 25 FCS recruits? And the Valley has 3? Maybe we oughta go easy on that best-conf-in-fcs stuff eh ...

Re: St Xavier game .. DUMP IT !!

much needed bump ... nice job with recruitment coaches, huge crop and some promising looking players. Especially impressive in that we turned over 6 coaches including both OCs and our recruiting coordinator. So with that done ... right now, replacing the STX game is THE highest priority we have if w...

Mike Gardner was the only player I had on our verbal commits list that committed before the early signing period but waited for the Feb signing period to sign. I figured he was lost but he came through. As you mentioned he had 3 known FBS offers. Maybe he was hoping for a P5 offer from a Texas scho...
