Re: Indoor Facility News

Back to athletics. Our bond offering for Redbird Arena and Horton is indeed going very well. The local lenders are taking very attractive interest rates. And the new lower bowl will be terrific. I am glad to hear this. I was back on campus about a year and a half ago. I wandered around lost in memo...

Re: Indoor Facility News

Yes, retirees will scream, but that is the financial mess that is Illinois. I don't disagree with you at all on the need to fix the finances of the state of Illinois. But I think we all know it will never happen until a situation similar to the city of Detroit occurs, if it does. I have quite a few...

Re: Indoor Facility News

I guess I am responsible for this Financial State of ISU discussion, even if it was without any intent on my part. I did a little searching on-line myself and found this article from Forbes to be interesting. The financial woes of the State Universities in Illinois appear not only to be from the lac...

ESPN+

With just one game left in the Football season and not wanting to pile more negativity onto the 2018 Football Redbirds, I thought I would ask what the fans thought of the EPSN+ broadcasts. I personally thought for the $5 a month it was a good deal. The game transmissions went with few problems, at l...

Re: Indoor Facility News

I was down in Boone NC a couple of years ago. Listening to sports radio and talking to folks, there is still a pretty vocal contingent that is upset about the move to FBS. They miss the FCS playoffs and closer opponents in their league. And the one fan said the program went from being the black to ...

Re: Indoor Facility News

There are several issue with moving up to FBS. First, Illinois State athletics since Zenger left can't raise any money. It would take real vision and leadership from the University President (nothing against Dietz, but he won't be here when this happens) and the athletic director. I don't think Die...

Re: ISU vs UNI......LETS WIN THIS GAME AND MAKE THE PLAYOFFS!!

Frankly, I am not surprised. Everyone got too carried away with early season wins against really crap opposition. Colorado State really sucks so even that win is nothing to get too hyped up about. A young team with some really good upside to look at down the road. I don't think this is a playoff tea...

Re: Looking Farther Ahead - Jackrabbits

This is not hindsight, Davis lack of consistency in his accuracy throwing the ball has been apparent all season long. He hits some on target but even with some completed passes, they were more great catches than accurate throws. The beginning of the schedule was soft...very, very soft. The NDSU game...

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

I have never been to Frisco so I can't endorse one way or the other. Having said that...I would like to see the Championship game rotated around some if that is possible. What about some Florida games? California, Arizona or other warm-weather locations. Why does Frisco have a lock on this game? I h...

I don't believe in morale victories.Today sucked. But there are certain things that matter. Seniors. Football is a senior game. Always has been - always will be. There are 6 seniors on the NDSU starting front 7. 24 on the team. We have 11 seniors total on our roster. I think it showed throughout th...

Re: Level Setting: sitting 4-1 .. I'll take it, but ....

I’m so sick of this argument. Actually, I thought that was the whole reason for this board. To exchange different opinions and see what the fanbase is thinking. If you are sick of the discussion...why participate any longer? The Coaching staff is sticking with Davis but that means pretty much zero ...

Has Davis thrown a pick yet? No. Is there room for improvement? Absolutely. Well some people could make the argument that many of the passes Davis has thrown have been so far off target that neither the receiver or the defender had a snowballs chance in hell of even touching the ball let alone catc...

4-1 is where I thought the Redbirds would be at this point but I thought the loss would be to Colorado State, not MoState. Nice to beat an FBS team but I would gladly swap a Conference win for a Non-Conference loss. Anyway, Southern lost to the Penguins by a field goal Saturday. From the box score, ...

Re: ISU vs WIU game time.....sets go REDBIRDS!!

Don’t forget Davis hasn’t played for two years. He will be fine The team is 5 games into the season with 6 games left...how long do you wait? The problem I see with the comment that he has not played in two years is that he does not appear to be getting better. Kolbe has not played much since last ...

Re: Davis/Kolbe

But agree OL was not ready .. both Robinson and Davis struggled. Davis struggle with accuracy, but also got chased and hit some. So OL performance is probably as much on coaches as OL. MoST may be better than many of us thought .. plus they had an extra week to prepare ... they came out ready to ex...

Davis/Kolbe

I did not hear any post-game coverage. Does anyone know why Coach Spack brought in Kolbe for the last series of the 1st half and stuck with Davis the rest of the way? If you were going with Davis why make the switch for just one series? There must have been a reason but I never heard why. I thought ...
