Re: NDSU game 10/20

Count me in on the side that does not like reverses - generally plays to get a tackle for loss or fumble. Defenses are much faster than 30 years ago.

Re: Coach Muller speaking at the Knights of Columbus

Yes, thanks for a detailed report. I find it refreshing and uplifting. Now, there needs to be someone in the State's Attorney's Office to grow a pair and tell the NPD - ticket is dismissed - end of story. They actually need to do that in many more cases. That is the only way for the NPD to quit bein...

Re: Who Let the Dogs In? (aka Homecoming)

What worries me a little bit - at 1-4 SIU has nothing to lose. That is when a team, who has some talent, can become dangerous and will gain confidence as the game goes along IF they are winning. If memory serves me correctly, Spack usually plays teams like SIU from a defensive standpoint - to keep t...

I find the CEFCU thing in San Jose, CA, to be rather curious - but, the San Jose State Stadium is also used by an MLS Soccer team.

Re: Level Setting: sitting 4-1 .. I'll take it, but ....

I can help you out Fourth - no Kolbe unless there is an injury, period. End of conversation on the QB.

No one I have seen has mentioned the kicking change - with Bohlken taking over the place kicking duties. Fenlason is still the kickoff guy.

Re: ISU vs WIU game time.....sets go REDBIRDS!!

Now that you mention Ridgeway - two games in a row - 15 yd penalties after the play. The one at Mo State sustained a drive and turned the game around for awhile. On Saturday - that helped lead to the first touchdown. When the whistle blows - STOP and get back to the huddle - very simple.

Re: ISU vs WIU game time.....sets go REDBIRDS!!

I am agreement - Davis needs to tuck and run the ball more - that is a killer on a defense. Why did we not call more roll outs?? Those were good plays versus Colorado State. As ekeyfanclub pointed out - we had tight formations and tried to the run the ball WAY to often. I would love to see our recei...

Re: Forecast Improved for WIU game ... show up fans !!!

Our tailgate is in the Ropp Lot - G83 - it is just North of the football field. ISU tent and a striped ISU Flag flies - we are close to the restroom facilities for a reason - usually directly across from the group that has the Redbird City trailor. We are featuring Italian Beef.

Key point - you have a someone or some company willing to pay for it. Basically, if your games are on a national telecast at some point each year - then you get that type of money.

Re: Davis/Kolbe

If I understood what Spack said at halftime on WJBC - he felt he needed to make a change at QB. He felt Davis got the message at half and would be starting the second half. I would say there is more than one way to interpret that. I would say it was an attention getter with a little ass chewing at h...

Re: The state of the kicking game

If there is a fault of Spack - it is the kicking game. He does not like the kicking game and it shows. I did not have a problem whatsoever going on fourth down - I do have a problem with how we approached it. First, there was NO ONE over the center - Davis needs to tap the center - go on first sound...

Re: The state of the kicking game

Count me "in" on the going for it on 4th down in plus territory. Todd Berry often did that. Coach Spack is doing it more often - because of the confidence in the Professor.

The ole Bears of Mo State - the Birds need to make sure they do not have a let down. Mo State is coming off of a bye week - I would bet, there will be several gadget plays up their sleeve.

Crazzy - you are assuming there are a lot of people who are paying attention. There are SO many people now, who do not care about sports and especially football.

I am in complete agreement with Timmy - Davis makes decisions and zips the ball. Was it a Great Game for Davis - no - but it was a darn good game.

Interesting question about his pregame meal - banana, scrambled eg...
