STATS FCS Football Article - Biggest FCS Games for 2019

I enjoy watching FCS Football in general although I only follow the Redbirds closely. I thought this was an interesting article from the STATS FCS Football website. ISU v Northern Iowa on November 2nd made their list of biggest MVC games for 2019. I cant argue with any of the MVC games picked as big...

Re: Street and Smith's (May!? '19)

I personally am not very interested in the polls or rankings. Lots of fans enjoy talking about them and complaining about where their team is ranked or feeling good about their team is ranked. Something to talk about during the off season and enjoy if it is your thing. It will all be taken care of o...

Re: ISU over NIU listed as a possible FCS over FBS upset

I took a look at the NIU boards, which I almost never do with other team boards. I did not see anything that I would not have expected. If they are on the Huskie message boards they are the core of the fan base most likely and bleed for their team, just like those of us here. I can respect that and ...

Re: ISU over NIU listed as a possible FCS over FBS upset

Again, good point.. But to me they are our little brother, directional school and we are giving them a chance to beat us at the one thing they have the ability to do it in. They have let their school slide into the dumpster while pumping up football, so why let them use this game as a marketing too...

Re: Offensive backfield depth

But if you asked me what I was concerned about for the 2019 season it would be QB play, offensive productivity, receivers who can stretch the field and catch in traffic and the kicking game. Those are the areas the 2018 Redbirds struggled at times. This comment really resonated with me, Virginia. S...

Re: Offensive backfield depth

Well, I don't disagree that the failure to bring a 4-5 year QB from freshman class to a successful career is a weakness in Spack's program, but you also have to give him some credit for "recruiting" Roberson and Davis (anyone else I'm forgetting?) - I mean, they didn't just show up on the curb. Som...

True some were recruited as athletes with coaches thinking about position change ,, but I think the track record above speaks for itself and as stlrb said ... we have been forced to look to transfers more often than our home grown guys.

Re: Offensive backfield depth

Except that some of these "QBs" were recruited as athletes. They were given a chance to make it as a QB, before realizing they'd play some other position. I remember Todd Berry saying that he recruited lots of high school QBs knowing that they weren't suited for the position in college. By being th...

This looks like a scheduling win to me. We'll have some good company in schools scheduling Dixie State: BYU, Colo St, Montana, SDSU, etc. That's not a bad group to be a part of.

Re: Offensive backfield depth

We had a lot of departures in the offensive backfield so a big question this spring involves depth at RB and QB. Markel Smith's exit in particular left a big void behind Robinson. Jeff Proctor has been a pleasant surprise and he appears capable of filling those shoes. We knew he was fast but I was ...
