Re: At Indiana State 1/20/18

Three words, Dan Muller's ego. This is the dumbest thing I've read on RBF.net in a long time. The reality is that in order to win in the valley, and consistently, you need to have good players, playing together and playing smart. You need discipline. You don't win by bending your own rules. Muller-...

Re: St Xavier game .. DUMP IT !!

I wonder if ETSU is looking for an exibition game in that first week, however - considering the following weekend they're headed down the road to play the Vols at Neyland Stadium. That would be a long bus trip for our guys....but it's completely doable and what a way to build rapport. Otherwise, are...

Re: At Indiana State 1/20/18

Any word yet on why MY didn't start the game? Beyond the loss of valuable playing time for ISU's leading playmaker on a team that is desperate for playmakers.....once again a game starts or is played with the entire ISU team's focus being distracted by the Muller/MY circus. I am absolutely for disc...

Re: St Xavier game .. DUMP IT !!

I would actually make the trip to Johnson City if we got that matchup and it had to be on the road. There are some travel considerations and expenses for both teams.....but what a great region to spend Labor Day weekend.

Re: At Indiana State 1/20/18

At one point, many of us thought that having everyone back next year was a good thing. Now, I think it is a problem. We need 3-4 guys to leave in players 4-12, but I am not sure who would take them. Muller will have to run them off to get them to leave. The notion that we should run-off student ath...

Re: At Indiana State 1/20/18

What did you expect with 4 players graduating, 3 being out with injuries and one not qualifying? What makes you think this team won't be good next year besides one bad game against a team we beat once this year without our leading scorer? This team is young and just got to full strength so yes we a...

Re: St Xavier game .. DUMP IT !!

My guess would be that they are actively trying to replace it, but aren't going to come out and say that as it would also hurt their negotiating position with other schools. (An ETSU has to believe that although we don't love a St. X game, we are fine with it if need be). I do remember the 1991 seas...

Re: Redbird Arena Renovation

The problem with the bluehairs is not that they can't get up in cheer.....but that they are the closest ones to the action, and the students have always been put in the corner. The bluehairs would be happy to stand if it was part of the environment/culture. There's nothing unique to B/N that makes ...

Re: St Xavier game .. DUMP IT !!

If St. Xavier is going to be coming to B/N for a football matchup, it had better be to Illinois Wesleyan. Dump this game is right. It would be more interesting to just play Illinois Wesleyan instead. I would bet we would get a lot of their fans paying to attend at least. It would be much more inter...

I look for Birch to fill the depth chart at WR next year. If not that, then perhaps safety or maybe a far-down-the-depth-chart OLB

Re: Barry On Blast

Regardless as to whether it would work both ways.....the end result is still players changing jerseys and affiliations routinely, which will turn college basketball into something that more closely resembles fantasy football, or AAU. It will become about the individual players....which in turn, will...

Re: How ISU Became a Football School

While I would love for ISU to start putting all of its eggs in the football basket, so to speak (and stop with this charade of ISU being a bball school), I question whether this is the right thing for FCS/G5 schools to do. Given the questionable long-term viability of tackle football as we currentl...

I'll chime in with Sonny Roberts and Mike
Vandegaurd. I also liked Chad Altadonna. To lazy to check if i spelled any name right but there u go.
I seem to remember Vandeguard as the face of the program for 2-3 years. Chad-o-matic was a great free throw shooter....and an even greater guy.

Re: Robinson better than Coprich? RB position looking good

Robinson has been a great addition, but he has a ways to go if he's going to be as good as Coprich.

Coprich hit the hole so hard and made great jump cuts. He had adequate break away speed but had some power, too.

Re: Reggie Lynch facing suspension

I remember a couple years back perusing Reggie Lynch's twitter (@airreginald) feed and I was taken aback by how many of his tweets were sexual in nature. I understand lusting for the likes of Kate Upton but it was a little much. I'm not trying to pile on here, but it was a little gross. Seems he's s...
