Re: How ISU Became a Football School

This article should be published in the ISU Alumni magazine, Pantagraph, Goredbirds, any IL paper that needs good content. Really well done article. Is the program where Spack envisioned it would be nine years later? “Yep, I still think there’s a lot of untapped potential here,” he said matter-of-f...

Re: ISU early siging day - results

19 recruits is a ton compared to everyone but NDSU as 4th pointed out. I think this shows the overall value of ISU and the power of Coach Spack. His office has about 100 photos of former players that have played in the NFL which speaks for itself. The ability to sell playing for a National Champions...

SDSU steamrolling New Hampshire 28-0 before Halftime.

Re: Offensive Coaching Changes

Was the strength of our program the run game this year??

Was Robinson 1st Team All Valley?

Was Conrad the recruiting coordinator? Whether he’s gone, still here, fired...please explain your hate, varedbird.

This is a fan board, no one is dying over what’s posted on here.

Re: Offseason Wish List

Couple thoughts: ISU isn’t touching Horton or U-High anytime soon. What they may try and touch in the next decade is Metcalf. That is tons of prime Academic land that could be used for a School of Engineering that’s being floated and other cramped departments needing more space. I agree with Fourth’...

Re: Offensive Coaching Changes

If Conrad is gone, I hope it’s a nice promotion. He did a lot for our program while he was here.

These coaching changes should wake some of our players up about how abysmal this past year. Time to get to work!

Re: Offseason Wish List

With regard to moving the field a few yards further south, I;m starting to think not. I looked more closely at the new east side placement and noticed 2 things that would suggest the field will NOT be moved and that Kaufman will probably come down at some point: Interesting take on Kaufman coming d...

Re: Illini LB Tre Watson and OL Megginson - transferring where ??

Yes, it is considered an athletic priority. Unless things have changed in the last few months, it's not close to being a reality. A couple donors making transformational (7-figure) gifts are what's needed unless we can find 50 or more donors willing to give 6-figures each. Until that happens, it's ...

Re: Beathard back as OC

Talk about hot off the press, I have no complaints. Makes sense for Spack to mention wanting to get back to the offense in 2014 & 2015 and also firing all the coaches he did. I'm sure he talked it over with Beathard and he gave his terms/opinion on the coaches involved. Kurt must be getting a nice l...
