Re: QB Competition update

The Pantagraph article on the scrimmage has Davis 8 of 13 for 138 yds and Kolbe 6 of 13 for 34 yds. It did not list the number of sacks for each QB - other the defense recorded six. Also, no mention of passes knocked down by the lineman. One item that Reinhardt did point out - "Davis converted two f...

Re: QB Competition update

After watching the scrimmage yesterday - it was clear to me Davis was going to get the nod - IF the coaches were fair. Kolbe - Telling play for me - Kolbe had a receiver about 5 yards behind the defense, breaking straight down the middle of the field - over them by several yards. Terrible throw. Put...

Re: Hancock Southwest Entrance

Well, well, well - In looking at the Hancock Stadium Map in my season ticket package - the Southwest part of the end zone is designated as the Alexander's/Famous Dave's Field Suites. The Heller Stores Touchdown Terrace is to the East of this.

Season Tickets Arrived!!!!!!!!

Received the season tickets in the mail today - Friday!!!! Different style than the previous years. While the Parking passes have changed drastically - they are the size of and look like a ticket this year. I am going to guess it was printing costs.

Re: DeJong 2018

Geez, a big baserunner screwup by DeJong last night cost the Cardinals at least one run and you could make the case for another run - those plays make a difference in a one-run game. He has to play better - period.

Re: Alumni Golf Outing

Geez, my son reminded me last night, I forgot about two pitchers - one from Normal West and the other from Bloomington HS that went to UIC and both got drafted by the Oakland A's this year and are on the Vermont short-season Rookie A league team for Oakland.

Re: Alumni Golf Outing

It was a good event. There were 60 former players and friends - I would say the breakdown was about 50 players and 10 friends. Duck Hogan was the winner of the event. Both Buzz Capra and Neal Cotts played in the event - fantastic. Thanks to Dan Purhom and Jeff Bergman for organizing this event and c...

Single Game tickets on Sale - Thursday, July 26

Yes, single tickets for those you who do not have Season Tickets - go on sale starting Thursday.

In looking at availability - I see good news that there are not many reserved seats left for most of the games - which means Season Ticket sales must have been good.

Re: DeJong 2018

DeJong looked terrible last night - two errors and another misplay - and three cost the Cardinals runs. He cannot play like that and continue to be in the lineup.

"Feel-Goodism" at work - makes no sense, inconveniences most people, and provides no additional safety - it is all about the intent - not the results.

I do not think ISU can sell a player's jersey - it has to be generic - at least that is my understanding of NCAA rules. I agree - I think it would be a HUGE seller.

Re: Durkac Fired

I hear that Rodney Kellar is rather upset his son got fired. From everything I know, he was a terrible pitching coach. Did not know much about mechanics - would often just tell the pitchers to throw to certain spots - instead of providing instruction on what it takes to be able to pitch and hit thos...
