Re: Indoor Facility News

Maybe not entirely fair to do this, but Spack has raised the bar enought around here that we're now putting more players in NFL. I assume we try to hit those guys up to help .. certainly, an indoor facility would be an easy case to make for some level of contribution from former players. Question fo...

Re: Indoor Facility News

What more is it you want the admins to do to guarantee playoff bids Virginia Redbird or, Birdswin? What are we doing differently now than what we did the years we did make the playoffs? Sadly, your own words show the problem. What is ISU doing differently from the years they made the playoffs? Noth...

Re: Indoor Facility News

For those in favor of a bubble, I think this would be a decent option. Just throw it up over Hancock. https://bceagles.com/facilities/?id=8 I'm not a huge fan of the bubbles, but can agree that it would be better than nothing. Just can't understand how so many D2 schools can manage to put together ...

Re: MVFC with two in Semi's

Once again the MVFC is showing much more strength in the playoffs than those teams from the East. ND State destroyed Colgate 35-0. SD State won at Kenneshaw State - who was ranked #2 in the polls - and was a #4 in the seeding. Jacks win 27-17 in a rainstorm - steady rain the entire game. The Commit...

Re: FCS coaching changes ... couple big ones

So JMU Coach Houston got an offer from Charlotte, which was rescinded after he confirmed the offer publicly. Then parlayed that offer into a better $ offer from ECU ... both programs are FBS doormats. If ECU is a doormat, I wish Illinois State was a doormat. If Illinois State had worked half as har...

Re: Indoor Facility News

After 5 years of nothing ISU needs to move on from that idea and do something they can get done. Actually, after 5 years of nothing Illinois State needs to move on from the idea that Larry Lyons and his staff are the ones to get done what needs to be done. For some reason, at this university the fi...

Re: Indoor Facility News

ISU is pretty careful about spending money wisely, even if painfully slow at times to support athletics. Hancock 2.0 is prime example .. took them too long to get it done, but did eventually get it done, and did it right IMO and didn't overspend too soon. It is why ISU is in much better financial co...

Re: Signing Date 12/19

Only place I think we need immediate help is at WR, but I wouldn't mind a nice surprise or 2 to shore up our OL and DE (edge rusher type) positions. Oh, and placekicker ... that was pretty bad even as transition years go. Our last 2 guys started out pretty mediocre and turned out good (Ausieker foll...

Re: Please read: RBF Survey

I completed the survey and made some suggestions about thread protocols and monitoring, similar to how it is done on AGS. But it was in no way a complaint .. AGS has many admin people and they've been doing it a long time. Winning more games would improve attitudes and posting activity. We are a fic...

Re: MVFC All-Conference

The Matthews omission is the most glaring ... ISU was clearly the 2nd best defense in MVFC and just a smidge behind NDSU almost every significant team defense statistic. And did so against a very similar SOS in and out of conference. Matthews possibly benefited the most from our defensive schemes an...
