Re: Front Page News

Are the MAC programs top to bottom healthier than the MVFC programs? You assume they are. Are they for the long run? Would an upgraded MVFC bring in enough new revenue to balance the increased costs? NIU has only three Saturday home games this year in FB. Is that the future? I'm all for exploring o...

Re: Valley Coaching Salaries

Yup, that sounds about right. Purple Ben and Muller have by far the highest winning percentage of the coaches in the Valley (minimum 4 years coaching). Chris Holtman at Ohio St makes about $7.5 Million a year and has a winning percentage about equal to Dan Muller.

Re: Lyon's Response

Wow. Lots of shots fired here. You are sending some mixed messages here, champ. You seem to be violently against the coach, the players and the AD... yet you continue to show up to games. Have you ever thought about just... ya know... going away? Like, there are lots of other teams in the area (we h...

Re: Davis at the Manning Camp

Trevor Lawrence is going to moonwalk into the top overall pick in the next draft and possibly be crowned the heir apparent to Andy Dalton or Matt Stafford (Whichever team is worse). If you are part of the Manning camp, you are there for a reason. This is an exceedingly good thing. Any time a player ...

Re: Redbird Arena Renovations

I think the redesign looks fine. It is an upgrade. As for luxury boxes, here are some thoughts: - Does ISU really have the fan base to fill more than a couple luxury boxes every game? I think having 4, MAYBE 6 is more than enough for the foreseeable future. I don't mind having the 1 or 2. I'd rather...

Re: STATS FCS Football Article - Biggest FCS Games for 2019

Gotta think about the cultural difference between a HS player in either Dakota, northern Wisconsin or Eastern Montana. NDSU is their goal. They grow up with Bizon stuff on the walls like many of us had Illini, Wisconsin or Notre Dame stuff on ours. Then you tack in a culture of absolute domination c...

Re: "Indoor Facility ... #1 priority" ... AD Larry Lyons

So the Redbird Rising 3 year fundraising campaign hit its $150,000,000 goal 13 months early (someone give a bonus to that fundraising team!) I think it is certainly possible to raise the $$$ for an indoor facility if you reach out to the right companies. Hell, they made $150,000,000 in a little over...

Re: Where dey go?

I hate embracing the minor league FCS approach - but if Harris and Edwards get serious playing time at FBS programs this year then I figure use it to your advantage in recruiting. If a kid gives us 3 solid years on the field AND graduates and they want to give their talents a try at FBS level then ...

Re: ISU over NIU listed as a possible FCS over FBS upset

The exact same time as AEW All Out at Sears Center up the street. Damn it. Was really hoping for a 1 PM game so I could get one hotel and do both.

Paris Lee just got PAAAAAID. He might not be in the NBA, but the kid now can go just about anywhere he wants in international ball. He will make LOTS of money playing the game over there.

Re: At Western Michigan 2021

I'm pretty sure he meant Eastern Michigan, who we kinda dominated.

EWU is a great deal better than EMU and I don't think we have ever gotten out of EWU's angry red turf alive, though I may be wrong.

Re: ISU over NIU listed as a possible FCS over FBS upset

I welcome those that would look at ISU as a dramatically lesser team. There was a guy there that expected a 50 point win. Not sure if he realized that our average OL is an established 310lber or that James Robinson will be the best college football player in the state of Illinois this year. I'll be ...

Re: So how are we feeling now?

As much as I hate to say it, this team will probably be better just by addition by subtraction. The Chris Duhon experiment was... bad. I was REALLY excited about that signing, but I just don't think he gave a shit about the college game or the young men he was working with at all. Further, Keyshawn ...

So how are we feeling now?

After what I have to say is among the most incredible three weeks in recent offseason program history, the lineup, staff and overall program looks suddenly, potentially very solid. Let's review: 5/1- Muller fills vacant assistant coaching opening with University of North Dakota HC, Brian Jones. 5/8-...

Re: Antonio Reeves to ISU

Rivals lists interested schools including St. Louis, Illinois, Georgetown and Wisconsin (with Wisconsin as almost a sure fire signing).

From the best HS program in Chicago. This is...huge.
