Re: Dixon Not Coming To ISU

I have been silent for awhile, but keeping up with all of the goings on. Like most, maybe all, of you, I was not sure about this one. But, I also know I have been surprised before. I wish him the best and hope we can fill that spot with a PLAYER. A am fired up about next years team. It could be our...

Re: Spring practice right around the corner....who is pumped?!!

And my confidence that OC Beathard will figure out how to build his system around his personnel, and for me, that means Kolbe will finally get a chance to show what he can do. Certainly, the combination of OC Beathard, RB group, OL group, and a little more talent (unproven) at WR group .. all will ...

Re: Loyola

I seem to remember that there were posters on this forum that were not very happy when Loyola was invited to join the MVC. Does anyone else recall these objections? Looks pretty silly now. ;) There has been a lot of “I told you so” about Loyola during this tournament run. I believe your comment is ...

Re: Spring practice right around the corner....who is pumped?!!

We should keep in mind the whole Malachi game plan against SDSU worked ok, not great ... . it's not like he played particularly well .. one big run, couple other solid runs. Our passing was very limited .. that was probably the biggest surprise for SDSU .. they had to respect the unknown .. that is...

Re: 2018 Interest - based on tweets and follows

Not sold on him, hmmm, you watching Loyola? This guy is everything ISU needs. There is no substitute for strength and size to take up space. With him in the middle, it makes Fayne and Malik extremely difficult match ups. Look at how much space Krutwig takes up in the middle. Get him signed up now. ...

I have the misfortune of working with several head-in-their-ass Bradley fans who are giddy about their recent 20-13 season. Has anyone closely examined where 10 of those wins came from?

Now . . . how is the NCAA going to make sure this never happens again?? Had it on the 32”. It graduated to a 55” in the 2nd half. ...

Beathard & Kolbe ... I'm liking their chances ... but I've been wrong before .. about a year ago I think.
I like our chances with Beathard & Kolbe and/or Beathard & whoever he works with. I am really looking forward to another Beathard offense. Put me down as Beathard's #1 fan. :clap:

Re: Marty

Good riddance as coaches like him (Hinson too) bring entire conference down. Can certainly play ball but can not coach. Hinson and Simmons bring the conference down? They are two of the most tenured coaches the conference has seen in recent memory. Both love the conference and Marty would have love...

I wish Marty good luck in his future. Being a D1 coach is not easy. Despite his record I always thought Evansville was a very tough team to play. No easy wins over UE. :(

Re: Offseason Wish List

I wouldn't be surprised if Coach Beathard re-opens the QB competition.

The potential QBs are Jake Kolbe; Conor Joyce; Malachi Broadnax; Tristan Smith; Trenton Hatfield; and possibly the Minnesota QB potential transfer; others???.

It could be interesting again. :think:

Re: Next season

If anyone is close to the program, I wish they would look at Colorado 5th year transfer Tory Miller. 6'9 250 center. Our team had some good height, but not enough bulk to rebound well on the defensive end. I think Rey, our 6-9, 230lb freshmen could really help. I can see him making a big impact on ...
