Re: At Indiana State 1/20/18

Unbelievably BAD - this is worse than embarrassing - all guards were worthless today.

Re: Quiz Question

Probably the best game of Zwart's career.

Then the next season the Redbirds beat BU at the then new Ice Rink.

Re: Redbird Arena Renovation

Well, there is no way to hold a game at Horton - most if not all of the bleachers are gone. I was told by a facilities person - it would be impossible unless the school would spend a LOT of money - in his opinion, not worth it. For Redbird78 - I can easily tell you - I have been asked and poked in t...

Bragging on Attendance????

I happened to be in Peoria a little later today - driving home, I turned on WMBD 1470 for a little while - they happened to have the Bradley coaches show on - at the time, they were interviewing the ticket manager - they started "bragging" that Bradley is leading the Missouri Valley in attendance, w...

Re: MVC Game 6

Just watched the end of Ole Miss beating Florida - both teams that have been beat by Valley teams. Refs did everything to give Florida a chance - with 1:44 to go - referee called a charging foul on Florida - Florida coach called a TO and asked for a review - the refs came and reversed the charging f...

Re: Bison win 6th Championship

Good win for the Bison - but, good grief, what a terrible job by the refs in this game - that was just embarrassing for a national championship game.

Re: MVC Game 4

Drake made shots when it counted - but Indy State shot terrible from the free throw line - at one time in the second half they were at 33 percent.

BU looks horrible - I have to believe they will not come close to playing that bad against us.

Re: Birds @ Bulldogs Wednesday 1-3-18

We cannot get into a 3-point shooting contest - show patience on offense, the ball has to touch the lane every time - only 3's should come from inside out passing - no dribbling over the time line and firing up a wild three off the dribble - that is just flat out stupid. Get it in and draw fouls.

Re: Milik sweeps MVC awards again...

At season's end, it's going to be difficult for anyone outside of Springfield, MO. to vote for anyone other than Milik as POY if he wins the majority of the weekly awards. I've ben watching Redbird basketball for 40 years, and with the possible exception of Roy Herrold, I have not seen a player wit...

Harold Etheridge Returns

I see where Spack made an announcement that he has hired Harold Etheridge as O-Line Coach. Etheridge was with the Birds thru most of the 1990's as the O-Line Coach.
Looks like Spack is going with older, veteran coaches.

Re: Sycamores @ Redbirds 12-31-17

When I first sat down and saw Evans not dressed to play - I did not think the Birds had a chance. Then, as the first half went along - we may have a chance. When we were down 10 points in the second half - as Sarge pointed out, could have easily folded the tent and chalked it up to missing Evans. No...

The Aces were up 28-20 at Half - then Loyola stepped up in the second half to win 66-59.

Re: MVC Game 2

I see Loyola, the Birds, UNI, and SIU getting Ws - Mo State at Valpo - depends if Mo State shows up to play, if so they eek one out, but most likely they do not give a good effort and lose.

Re: MVC Game 1

SIU win at UNI is a little bit of a surprise - but, DU and Indy State held serve at home. I believe UNI goes to the hockey rink in Peoria on Sunday. Poor ole BU - it just bears a tear to your eye - ha, ha, ha.

Re: Projections

First things first - The conference season - while the only bets I have made in Vegas over the years - Cardinals winning the pennant - I would easily bet the Brids will be better than 9-9 - I see 13-5 or 14-4 with a good bounce. Next - Arch Madness - who knows, by then Clarence may be a solid contri...

This team is starting to find ways to win - that is a Big Accomplishment. Yes, I am frustrated with shot selection and a lack of offensive discipline at times - but, we are making many more positive plays than negative. I would agree with others on Clarence - needs more time to gather himself - if a...

Re: New tax bill impact on college sports

Geez, gone a few days and heck breaks loose - ha, ha, ha. The ole Sarge is correct - I am anything but timid when it comes to refs calls or non-calls - and when our players take STUPID shots - that gets under my skin.
