MVC Tournament Announcement

On the MVC web-site - in the Championship Format discussion - "... the top four seeds based on regular season finish a buy into Day 2 of the tournament,..." - I guess they think the teams have purchased their way in versus using the proper work - bye.

Re: OT: SIU Arena Naming Rights

That is a little bit of stretch for Banterra for the size of the deal, but good for them for supporting SIU. Heartland Bank & Trust headquartered in Bloomington is twice the size, however, the top officers and primary family are Illini - part of the difference. All other institutions only have branc...

Re: 2019 Home Game Times Announced

I see there is no reason given for the Noon start for the ND State game - that is the only one that seems odd. Noon starts are very strange to begin with - what is wrong with 1:00 or 1:30?

Beer Sales

Confirmed today - there will be Anheuser-Busch products for sale at Hancock Stadium and Redbird Arena starting in the Fall. Do not look for a Big announcement - A-B distributor was not happy with how the Illini announced it. They want it down played - announce it to season ticket holders, alumni, an...

Re: Jefferson Transferring

The problem with this +/- stat - it can become skewed for bench players - with a lot less minutes played. Is there really anyone who believes that if Hein had his minutes doubled, that would have contributed to more wins because of his +/-? He had a role - he played hard and gave everything he had -...

Well Shuttlesworth, so far every school that Carson has visited is D-1 - no need to worry. Schools I know he had visited to date besides ISU are: Western Michigan, Central Michigan, and South Dakota.

Re: RBF.net NCAA Bracket Challenge!

I think this is a first, since the tournament went to 64 teams that I have all of the Sweet Sixteen correct. I can say it was easier when only 24 teams were in the NCAA Tournament - ha, ha, ha. I only wish I used these same selections in my co-workers pool where first place pays around $200.

Re: Illini

Well, sometimes a team needed an "attitude" adjustment. In Sports, sometimes you get hit in the mouth - it does not feel good. Coach Holm was correct in saying weekends like this happen sometimes - the important thing is how you react to it?

Getting Hurt in Recruiting

The lack of an indoor facility is starting to have real consequences in recruiting. I know of a HS kid getting recruited by the Redbirds - in fact his family has season tickets. However, they have visited several MAC schools and now other MFVC schools. They noted this weekend that University of Sout...

How about Wardle leaving Dave Snell hanging for almost an hour before doing the post-game interview??? They knew it would be a little while for the NCAA press conference - but Wardle showed up, just before they were to leave press row. Chad Klein kept saying he had texted a number of people, then Sn...

Well, we will see what happens. Now Bruninga not being available until October? That does not sound good.
