Re: NIU Coach Leaves

I thought I would post a link to a story about the Northwestern $260 million athletic facility. The football practice facility on the lake looks pretty nice! These are the "haves". Beautiful facility. The money in the Power 5 is really staggering. I don't think Fitzgerald is leaving anyway, he has a...

Re: NIU Coach Leaves

Double his salary. I thought he made between $400k-$450k here. However, even if we bumped his pay to $500k, we still couldn’t pay him close to NIU. Why would ISU bump his salary? As of recent it is not like Spack has been setting the world on fire...basically 3 straight years of 500 winning percent...

Re: Open Dates Posted

Can we assume that EIU H&H is a given? So, FBS, EIU, and open dates in '20, '21, and '22, with 2 open dates in '22. I count 12 Saturdays between Labor Day weekend and the week before Thanksgiving, so 12 games that season? I would love to see us start scheduling H&Hs with the best programs in FCS. I...

Updated Pantagraph article said Buffalomeat was dismissed for conduct detrimental to the team. Looks like Broadnax was dismissed as well.
Disappointing all the way around.

Re: FCS coaching changes ... couple big ones

Hey BisonLaw .. welcome to Redbird Nation ...thanks for chiming in !! First of all, good luck this weekend ... EWU will need a near perfect game to beat you guys, but I don't see it happening unless they play very well and some fluke things happen. Otherwise, I see NDSU by 2+ TDs. As you can see ab...

Happy New Year!

Another year and another season in the books. Spring ball is around the corner now and new recruits and transfers heading to Hancock. Nobody knows what 2019 holds for Redbird Football. I thought the 2018 Birds would do better than they did. Are the Redbirds solid at QB? How will the O-line play? Som...

Re: FCS coaching changes ... couple big ones

But I think given all of this turnover, NDSU does look at more of a rebuild than reload for next season .. new coaches, 16 new starters, plus a few more from their 2 deep ... all need to be replaced. This is a lot .. even for NDSU. The NDSU run has been absolutely incredible. They recruit well and ...

Re: RIP Ron Bell

I recall watching Bell play at Hancock back in the early 70's. He was an impressive back at that time. All the players were much smaller then but I remember when he was drafted by the Steelers. Not many ISU players got looks from the NFL back then. RIP Mr. Bell.

Re: FCS coaching changes ... couple big ones

The question now is, who replaces Kleiman? As this article speculates it will almost certainly be someone with direct links to the program. Probably same old business as usual but everything ends at some point. Not really even a ripple in the force with Kleiman was promoted. What happens this time?...

Re: Brady Davis

I like Brad's long hair. Maybe you are jealous. He has a wife and I bet she likes it. Hey, if Mrs Davis likes the flowing locks it is A-okay with me! I have no problem criticizing the players, coaches or the administration...I do not have the intestinal fortitude to take on an angry wife! ;)

Re: Indoor Facility News

Re: Brady Davis

I always wondered how Brady would deal with the cold weather up here, him being from the south. I doubt he ever played in those conditions before. Terry Bradshaw grew up in Louisiana and went to Louisiana Tech. He had a NFL Hall of Fame career with the Pittsburg Steelers. Brett Favre grew up in Mis...

Ahhhh Normal in February. I used to sweat my ass off walking from Hillview Dr. to Horton. So what about the receivers? :drool: I am wondering who is going to replace Schnell next season. When Warrum graduated Schnell picked up the leadership role. Some of the young guys this season looked good at t...

Re: Indoor Facility News

I read your links, Virginia. I saw a bunch of stuff about how good NDSU, and a link to a YSU webpage about their indoor facility. You make a big deal about SDSU and NDSU having indoor facilities. Now, don't you think that might be a bit higher priority for them, being their location? The point is, ...

Interesting info, Virginia. But you didn't answer the question. except to provide a link about YSU's indoor building. At the time they were doing that, we were coming up with $25 million for Hancock 2.0. Should we have built an indoor facility instead? It just gets tiresome. Some posters b1tch and ...

What more is it you want the admins to do to guarantee playoff bids Virginia Redbird or, Birdswin? What are we doing differently now than what we did the years we did make the playoffs? Sadly, your own words show the problem. What is ISU doing differently from the years they made the playoffs? Noth...

Re: Indoor Facility News

Nobody in athletics I am talking to is at all happy we did not make the playoffs. Not at all. The goal every year is to play for a national championship. You have to get in the playoffs to have a chance, and there is disappointment we did not make it. And again, there are other building options tha...
