#38 was the best kicker today from what I saw.
#38 is Trevor Bond out of Indiana. I thought we'd been hearing more about the Fenlason kid (#36) from California.

Re: radio show coverage.

UCF has weekly shows and personal appearances by Football on radio at locations? As well as other coaches weekly, does any of the stations in Blm/Nrl do that that I could find on I Heart Radio or on the net? thanks I'm sure we'll see an announcement about the first show of the season soon, but here...

Re: LB Group .. warning, objects in mirror may be larger than ....

The article about the scrimmage in the pantagraph had Zach Matthews as the WILL linebacker. I'm guessing MIKE backer is Ty Deforest even tho I'd like to see Zeke Vandenburgh win that spot. SAM linebacker is between Tuvone Clark and Dec Kelly-Martin with the last backer as Jason Harris. Sent from my...

Re: Hancock Southwest Entrance

R-E-L-A-X. All they are doing is smoothing out the walkway, and removing the gravel area that the visiting team has to walk through. As it stands now, it is not ADA compliant. They are basically just making it look nicer. Nothing earth shattering here. I think I want more games against teams who ar...

Re: Early workouts

Spack fired 3 offensive coaches and pushed out a 4th. Spack wants to make playoffs .. all decisions will and should be made with that goal in mind. The head coach really shook things up. If those changes didn't grab some players' attention, nothing will. I also saw Spacks enthusiasm for the new guy...

Re: Early workouts

Randy Reinhardt has said that some true freshman WR's will play, but he didn't provide any names just yet so I'll throw one out there. I expect Austin Nagel to play. On a related note I'm losing faith in IU transfer receiver Jordan Fuchs showing up. We had reports that he was coming this summer. I ...

Re: Re: Broadnax to Safety

Hatfield must be making great progress.... Maybe... But I don't think Brady Davis would be here if the group was so strong. Hatfield is young, with lots of time to get better. But the coaches have seen him closely for a year now, so I don't think he's ready. Kolbe was the best during the spring cam...

Robinson is best #25 in FCS

Hero Sports has named James Robinson the best FCS player who wears the number 25. They've been counting down the best players at each number from 99-1. Robinson is not a surprise on this list as they have him as a 2nd team preseason all American. https://herosports.com/fcs/football-kickoff-james-rob...

Re: Broadnax to Safety

I thought this deserved a thread of its own. I felt that Broadnax had long-range potential at QB so I see this as a positive. If Coach Spack is seeing better future options at QB then he likes one or more of the following QBs - Davis, Hatfield, Smith and/or Jefferson and like I say they have to goo...

Re: Redbird Football Game broadcasts

We aren't sure yet, but based on what they did with the spring sports, they are moving the MVC games to ESPN+ which is $5 a month. It seems that the MVFC presents a whole slate of games to ESPN, who then decides which go to ESPN3 and which go to ESPN+. With the start of training camp almost here, I...

One more week to the opening of Fall camp?

My guess is that camp opens next Monday, July 30. Can anyone confirm? In any case, we need to get back to talking football. Big questions for the Fall for me at least: Who will win the QB job? When we last brought in a transfer QB to challenge a returning starter, the transfer Tre Roberson won the j...

Re: Street and Smith and Athlon

Pardon my ignorance, but IF we only end up with 6 D1 wins, but one of them is against CSU, would that be enough to get us in? Didn't that happen the year we beat Northwestern??? Six D1 wins meets the requirement. Of course at that point your whole body of work for the season is stacked up against t...

Fortunately Bethard is an OC genius and Kolbe is capable of going to a higher level.

Haven't been able to confirm the list at nfldraftscout.com. "The website ...
