Re: More of This

I'm guessing I'm not the only one that would need to look this up so here is the google search result ;) "For example, if there are one running back and two tight ends on the field, the grouping is called 12 personnel.

Re: D1 Transfers of Interest

So is Gilyard a PG or not? You guys seem to disagree on it. Athlon and Street and Smith's preview magazines seem to consider him a PG, but he clearly likes to shoot. Freshman year he averaged nearly 4 assists per game, a little better than last year. This season it appeared like he played with anot...

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.

Re: College Basketball Coaching Carousel

I'm really surprised Moser got an offer from SJU. I was going to post how there was no way he'd be a serious candidate, and didn't get around to posting it, so what do I know? Will confess now. Moser has been a head coach 15 years, including UALR, ISU and LU. He's been to the postseason 3 times in t...

Re: Derrick Cook juco PG

I'm all for a diamond in the rough, but I don't see where this guy is a PG. Isn't he gonna be in the Copeland mode as a true wing that Muller's gonna try to "make" into a PG? We've heard that song before . . . .

Re: Nice Rebound

Hard to say if Coach Durkac and the former staff could have taken this group to their current record if they'd been kept on, but hard to argue with success. Coach Holm is earning his keep so far!!

Re: Beer Sales

I already attend all home FB games but a can of beer could entice me to attend a baseball game. Those two kind of go together. Yeah, a cold beer during a November slushy match-up with the Bison or Jackrabbits, and the west wind blowing across the plains, uhh, not so much!! ;) Now, a little schnapps...

Re: Open Dates Posted

Don't necessarily want to turn this into a thread on the EIU game, but . . . I have generally been in favor of keeping the game, most years it seems like a good match-up, saves both teams on some travel dollars, allows fans to hit the road, etc. Here's a good page from Wiki with all the scores. We'v...

Re: OT: Beer

We had a guy move in with us who'd gone to Western, and he turned us onto Leinenkugel, which he drank over in Macomb. Went for around $2-3 a case if I recall. Anytime we'd go to Wisconsin, to a race at Road America or camping, you'd carry back a few cases of Point. Good stuff!! ;) And then also Old ...

Re: OT: Former Players

I watched one game for a while after Coprich signed (never did see him play) and I just don't see many people being that interested in "minor league" football. Gotta believe hiring all those "name" coaches cost a few bucks and it just wasn't sustainable.

Geez, I like beer as much as the next guy, but people can't get by a couple hours w/o a beer? Really? I tailgate before the football game, hit the bar before a basketball game, enjoy some refreshments, then go the game. No big deal I can't have one more. Hard for me to believe it will bring in very ...

Thanks for posting that, I was not aware of that site and will bookmark it for future reference.

Mr. Verdun's book on ISU football is a good read for all, it's a couple years old now but worth tracking down.

Re: Davis Gets Another Year

It's interesting to see some say they weren't too impressed with Davis last season, and I am with you. It is important to remember, he was runner up for MVFC Newcomer of the Year. I think we have very high standards as a fan base and want to reminisce on the Roberson years. That's cool though, I th...
