Re: Shooting Sucks

No big surprise to me - nor should it be to anyone else. Overall, we lack discipline and offensive concepts on what constitutes a "good" shot - thus, we have games that are all over the place on shooting and percentages. Just a helter-skelter mess at times. Shooting off of the dribble - gets your re...

Re: Carson Camp, QB, Normal West

Carson is a currently a Junior. Will be a Senior next football season. His sister was the softball pitcher when West lost in extra innings in the State Softball Championship game - Redbirds did not recruit her - she is at Seton Hall and was the Big East pitcher of the year last season. Big Miss. Peo...

Carson Camp, QB, Normal West

I see a Facebook post from the Camp's with Carson wearing a Redbird Jersey. Very interesting. Carson started as a Sophomore at West and had an outstanding Junior year - to the third round of the 6A playoffs. Carson has very good instincts in the pocket to "feel" pressure and buy time. Has excellent ...

Re: Wow!!

Very Good start for the Birds and Coach Holm - 3-0 vs Belmont and outscored the Bruins 51-20 in the three games!!!!

I certainly hope that Central Arkansas's baseball field is not as hideous as their football field - purple and gray striped - terrible.

Re: vs Bradley, 3 pm, ESPN2

Game is at 7:00 pm - not 3:00 pm. Taste in Horton from 4:00-6:30 - see you at the Beer Wagon area. I wear RED to all games period. I have 13 extra people coming - all were told months ago - the only way to go to a Redbird or Cardinal in St. Louis - is to wear RED. Asking people to wear another color...

Re: HCDM Accountability?

I agree with jammin. This is FAR to common. Not only on the post-game, but the quotes in the Pantagraph where he is publicly criticizing the players - that is worse than fans booing. That is by far the number one most alums I know who know refuse to go to games is because of Muller's comments about ...

Meet the Coach???

Received a post card yesterday from Redbird Athletics. At first I thought it was a reminder about the Taste this coming weekend. Upon further review, it was an advertisement/invitation to a reception to meet the new Baseball Coach Steve Holm. The reception will be at the Redbird Club Room in Hancock...

Re: MVC Game 13

That is how the Birds beat BU in the first game at the Civic Center. Birds up 3 with a couple seconds left and BU has the ball out of bounds under their own basket - as soon as the ref handed the ball to the player - the ISU players all dropped back to the 3-point line - I believe it was Pollard for...

Re: Attitude

Attitude is a good thing. But, it takes more than that. Are they being instructed properly? I do not know. Are they just not executing properly? Results would say yes. I said in another thread - it is the little things that make a difference in tight games and championship teams. I see the same mist...

Re: Muller and Lyons

I certainly hope the Birds win ArchMadness. However, the difference in tight games - are the little things. This team has shown, they do not do the little things that make the difference. There is not a big difference between and A and a B student - it is the little things - attention to detail and ...

Re: Booing

I would easily fall on the side that people need much thicker skin. I have been boo'ed before - makes me work harder to make sure I am right. Also, there are times, when I deserved to be boo'ed (not often), and there are other times if the people are not booing - means they DO NOT GIVE A DAMN - whic...

Re: Gameday at Redbird

Sense of entitlement maybe - but, I think it is these parents were not disciplined by their parents, thus, they have no sense of instilling discipline to their kids. Same thing occurs are Church - drives me nuts. My wife and I had four kids - rarely missed Church. If you do not make your kids act ap...

Re: @ Missouri St - 3 pm - ESPN3

The way several of players try to make entry passes - shows me either a complete lack of understanding or they are just doing it (half-assed) because they are told to pass it in. Thus, they can then rationalize in their mind - well I tried, but it did not work. So I will shoot a wild three instead. ...
