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...

Re: Robinson better than Coprich? RB position looking good

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.

I only was only able to catch the very end of the game. Looks like it was certainly a great game. Congrats to the Bison on their 6th championship in 7 years. What a truly remarkable feat.

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...

Re: TEAMS IN BOWLS THAT WOULDNT BEATMOST MVC TEAMS

I have to believe that if UCF didn't have games get cancelled due to hurricane Irma, and if they would have been more impressive in all of the wins....that they may have made it into the CFP. You have to figure Alabama isn't only beating USF, SMU, and Memphis by only a touchdown.

I don't see birch as a long-term running back. I look for him to be moved at some point to safety or undersized outside linebacker.

Re: TEAMS IN BOWLS THAT WOULDNT BEATMOST MVC TEAMS

I'm going on record as saying I am happy where we are at for now. Mainly because I don't love the direction of FBS in terms of the current bowl model. I still like the bowl model, just think that there are about 5-6 too many bowl games and that there should be more matchups of P5 vs non P5. I don't ...
