Re: Never too early... 18-19 Non-conf schedule

Illinois State is looking to buy a team on Dec 16th. Able to offer a competitive guarantee. So it looks like one of our final games to schedule will be against a scrub at Redbird. Eastern Michigan is looking for a game on that date. So if we out a few of these bits of info together, Finals over on ...

Re: Mark Adams going to war for Mid Majors

Not a big fan. First, seems like the key thing is admitting you are a one bid league and just trying to get a slightly higher seed so maybe can win a game. May be ok for some leagues, but not for MVC who has sent multiple teams to final 4 recently. Our goal should be to do what it takes to get multi...

Re: Keith Fisher, Transfer San Jose State

Would they really grant that extra year already? I always thought it was done after the fifth year.

Re: Yarbrough

This was the case in the late 70s when I was there too....

I would guess that NPD had a way to give tickets to horses and buggies too.

Re: Conference USA Scheduling

I have always thought it would be fun to have the guys and gals play the same weekend in the same town. Especially semi and final days. But gawd, not in the same venue at the same time!!!

Re: Miss Arch Madness

Hey Redbird fans. I wanted to let you know that we really missed going to St Louis for Arch Madness this March. After 18 consecutive years of going, it was tough not being there. In our early days of going, we were in the play-in games quite often and sometimes lost that game. However, we would sta...

Re: Conference USA Scheduling

Don’t like it. Think it will hurt second team, not help. But think it through to next step... If you are a P5 team you do just the opposite. You “seed” your teams in middle of season and then you have your middle teams play your bottom teams. Results; Your .500 teams end up better because they feed ...

Re: Zenger out at Kansas

I have posted this before but will again. I always liked him but always thought he was a lot of talk and a little execution. My last conversation with him was after we had hired Jank We were feeling pretty good about our basketball program. He was laughing at the status of another program in the val...

Re: Penny Collins

Big time move up in conference and pay also. Personally I don’t think he is much of a coach and it sounds like the chemistry on fgcu this team was a mess. I have watched program for 3 years now and this year they were extremely talented but didn’t play hard or play much defense. Also sounds like the...

Re: Penny Collins

FYI, Joe Dooley head coach at FGCU is leaving for ECU. At least it has been reported. If so David Cason may be looking for a home. He was a first year assistant for Dooley.

Re: Kansas AD who fired Porter Moser at Illinois State ‘excited’ for former coach

I like Zenger too. However my most memorable discussion with him was about what a mess the Wichita basketball program was. This was Marshall’s year 2 and we were doing pretty well with jank at the time and WSU was a hot mess.
