Re: Red Out Wednesday night

I was wearing Red in my hotel room - does that count?? Watched the Birds win on my phone, with ole PU BU and Mo State on the TV.

Thanks for covering for me Sarge - I sure it was a little more quieter in AA without my big mouth.

Re: MVC Game 17

Mo State was up 7 points with like 5 minutes to go - they just cannot finish a game. I hate to say it, but BU wanted the game more. Kennell hit plenty of big 3's and Mo State way to many turnovers.

Re: Bulldogs @ Redbirds 2-21-18**

Yes, definitely a good win!!! Good to see Fayne playing and making free throws.

Drake missing free throws was the difference.

Re: MVC Game 17

Very good summary of the situation Adunk - I will add, I do not see SIU or PU BU losing both of their final games - not out of the realm of possibility, but not probable. Drake seems to be playing well and finding ways - after Mo State went ahead, I thought Drake was toast - missed free throws in th...

Re: MVC Game 16

I was watching the MSU vs Drake game - this was a extremely over zealous reaction by the refs. A Bears player was fouled going to dunk - was airborne and landed flat on his back out-of bounds - right in front of the end of the Mo State bench. It was a spontaneous reaction by teammates and a team man...

Re: Arch Madness Update

After tonight's results - the game vs Drake on Wednesday night will be for the #3 seed in the tournament - Loyola will be the 1 seed and SIU the 2 seed. BU will be the 6 seed - Mo State will be either a 4/5 seed - The Birds will be either a 3 or 4 and Drake will be the 3 seed if they win at Redbird ...

Re: MVC Game 16

What a melt down by PU BU!!! BU was up 60-57 - Valpo went on a huge run - after a break away slam dunk by Valpo to go up 75-60 - Wardle goes out onto the court and says something to the trailing ref - who instantly gave him a Technical - very strange timing for a "T" - Oh well - BU loses.

Re: So I'm at this morgue we call Redbird Arena...

I am in 100 Percent agreement - our administration does a less than Satisfactory job with honoring our past great players.

They need to take notes from how the Cardinals do things - in many ways.

Re: UNI @ ISU 2/17

What a game!!! I thought we were in big trouble at half - being down 11 and with a wonderful record of 1-11 when behind at half. The inside out passing was a huge key to hitting all of those 3's in the second half. Just absolute horrible foul calls on Yarbrough and Ndiaye in the second half. I reall...

Re: 2019 - Francis Okoro, 6-9/225, C, Normal Community West HS

Knowing West admin rather well - there is no way they would agree to play at the Shirk. NCHS would be the more likely place, unless Bloomington would agree to play at West, which is a possibility.

Re: 2019 - Francis Okoro, 6-9/225, C, Normal Community West HS

I was at the West vs Danville game last night - terrible job by the refs last night. Danville was pushing, grabbing and holding Okoro with nothing called. Several other West parents who are ISU season ticket holders - we all said that type of defense is not allowed in college. Okoro is definitely a ...

Re: MVC Game 16

At the under 4 min timeout - Indy State was up 63-57 - only scored two free throws - both of those were one of two opportunities - went to OT tied 65 all. Barnes threw up several wild three's and Scott traveled several times - which never happens against us or does it get called.

Re: Arch Madness Update

What does not get counted in these numbers are the corporate seats. I know both ISU and SIU fans who go and are planning on going, but receive tickets from various corporate sponsorships. For example, I have neighbors who get tickets from a person who receives 8-10 tickets because the business he ru...

Re: Season Starts Tonight!!

A 1-0 loss is a tough way to start the season. Probably more of an indication that pitchers are ahead of hitters at this time.

Re: UNI @ ISU 2/17

A good time to revive MTXE - our current set of players are lacking in mental toughness. MT is what you need to win neutral site and road games - especially if you have to fall behind in the second half - offensive discipline and mental toughness, go hand-in-hand.

If the BU number is correct at 275 - then they have eclipsed the 225 mark - is this an oversight by Oren?

Re: YAK went after the Michigan job, peeps...

Good for Yaklich in making such a difference for Michigan - to me this is only good for ISU. Good for Muller to contact Michigan. To me this will only help attract good talent for assistants to ISU - because it shows, if you do a good job, then Muller will help you advance your career. What other co...
