Re: Spring game on Saturday....what will you be looking for the most?

Still no Buffalomeat, right? He's not on campus yet? He's here, at least I saw him in one of the spring practice videos. Unfortunately I missed the spring game because I thought it was next weekend...sigh. I just happened to turn on WJBC on Saturday and heard them talking about football. What I'm m...

Re: Grad Transfer and Transfer Interest

This .. Gassman scholarship was one year Technically, every scholarship is for one year. But okay, take Gassman off scholarship. That'd put us +1, not +2. If there was nothing happening after year end meetings with players we could conclude we are sitting as is. That is not the case. Based on the r...

Re: 2018 - Abdou Ndiaye, 6-9/200, PF The Nation Christian Academy

Is David N’Diaye still taking classes at ISU? Is he leaving ISU on good terms? Can he get Abdou to commit to ISU this weekend? DN is still taking classes. We saw him walking around campus just recently. Now, if we get another Ndiaye and give him the same number (#4) I can imagine the confusion that...

Re: 2019 - Marvens Petion, 6-6/200, SG, The Nation Prep Academy (FL)

It would be great if they wanted to play college ball together. Maybe offering all three will give us an edge on other schools. Can't believe any other schools have done that yet.

When one of those big schools have 'interest' in a player, I wonder what percent of that time does it actually turn into an offer?

Re: 2019 - Dontaie Allen, 6-5/190, SF, Falmouth, KY

About 2200 living in Falmouth. Closer to Cincy than Lexington or Louisville. Definitely a diamond in the ruff. Belmont may have the inside track since his current coach is an alum. That, and if he's been to Nashville/Belmont. Depends on what you are looking for, but Nashville/Belmont probably blows...

Wow. Dan offered both of them and they're 2018's. That would cause a bit of chaos if each accepted. I'm assuming this isn't a two for one deal again, or is it?

Re: 2018-19 MVC Predictions:

Good article about the future of MVS. Says the future looks bright and that ISU might have one of their most talented team in years. Also calls Chastain a highly rated transfer along with Copeland.

Re: Tax Law Change

I think the larger effect will be on revenue. Donations will certainly be down. Don't know how badly it will hurt attendance. It's not like you need to donate anything to get a ticket to an ISU event. Timmy, but to buy a season ticket in the lower bowl requires you to donate a certain amount. I alw...

Tax Law Change

Anybody have an idea how much the new tax law will affect next years attendance? From what I understand we can no longer deduct the seat donation part. Also, what about State Farm? For their employees weren't they matching some of the donation amounts? I'm hoping that doesn't bring down attendance e...

Re: King David gone

I think the fact that the coach didn't put Romine in for even a minute tells us something. He probably is hoping for another year of eligibility even though he never said it. There had to be a few games where we had a comfortable lead at the end, and he still didn't get put in. Why not see what he c...

Re: King David gone

Right now we are over one scholarship so we would need two more departures to bring in another big. I could see Dixon following penny and that would free up one but not sure where the second comes from. Your assuming Gassman or Chastain is on scholarship for 18-19? Just Chastain.

Let's just be honest guys...he really wasn't that good. I'm happy to see him go and use our scholarships wisely...like on Chastain or a juco transfer. With that said I wonder if Romine will play next year because if he doesn't we are in some trouble with relying on freshmen. Let's be honest guys. H...

Re: King David gone

1.) Ndiaye shot .682 from the line. He was better than most when it came to shooting from the line. To compare with the guard he came in with, Hein was .649 from the line. To say he was a liability from the line means we have some guys who were down right atrocious. 2.) You could say Ndiaye had a l...

I'm thinking Barajas could also be a candidate for some DE duty. I think he has some pass rushing ability.
