Re: Indoor Facility News

I can easily say - most, not all, financial institutions specifically quantify the investments in any entity related to or that receives either all or a part of their funding - direct or indirect, from the State of Illinois. Based on the levels, whether it may be a concern. Thus, most institutions h...

Re: Redbirds vs Augustana

The careless with the ball is a lack of discipline. You do not just turn that on and off. No question about talent on the floor - the biggest problem last year? Turnover and offensive discipline. We win will a lot of games just with our talent - however, it is the games against good teams and close ...

Re: Looking Farther Ahead - Jackrabbits

We should be looking for a new AD anyways, but if they don't make the playoffs because of the St. X game, Larry should be given his walking papers immediately. Spack doesn’t schedule who he wants to schedule? Pretty sure Dan does most of his own scheduling. RedbirdSoxFan - this was already discusse...

Good for Sean!! I have had numerous conversations with Sean over the years - he is a nice professional, young man, who wants to succeed and promote Redbird Athletics. I firmly believe he learned from the 25,000 mistakes Matt Lyons made.

Re: Season Tickets

I have not had issues with buying season tickets for either basketball (27 yrs) or football (22 yrs), or when I have purchased extra tickets, for many games. However, I have had friends, neighbors, and co-workers who have had many issues. Another item - those scanners for tickets - terrible. The las...

Re: Why not St. Louis as the location of the FCS National Championship game??

I could care less about empty seats - makes zero difference to me. I look at the problems with ticket availability - that is a MUCH bigger problem. Take that out of the equation. Then second is playing surface - the field in Frisco is terrible for football. It has far to much of a sandy base - that ...

Re: Why not St. Louis as the location of the FCS National Championship game??

I wrote the Conference Office about hosting the Championship game in St. Louis at the former Edwards Jones Dome. It would be perfect - no worry about the weather (very cold in Frisco), no worry on ticket availability, a huge improvement in playing surface (soccer field is terrible - gets tore up waa...

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...

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...
