Re: Texas Southern Scheduling Model: A Powerful Anti-Jank Weapon

Now if they go on a 20 game winning streak from here on out, then whoopsadaisy...all bets are off. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them at 18-2 or better the rest of the season until the NCAAs. As long as they win their conference tournament, that is what matters most to them. Davis can sell his tea...

Re: The reason for the bowls is not about money..prestige and recruiting.

If my son would of played football and a coach from let's say NIU or ISU came calling, NIU coach said "you can watch your son on TV all season and on a major network for a bowl game every year..or ISU says, you might be able to watch some of the games on a stream feed (espn 3)and if we win 3 playof...

Re: Battle for Illinois

Silly, lame, lazy marketing. I've never seen a university so resistant to getting out of its comfort zone, so adverse to reaching its potential. I have been critical in the past of particular efforts with fundraising and marketing. This isn't just us. I don't care if they want to create some rivalr...

Re: Texas Southern Scheduling Model: A Powerful Anti-Jank Weapon

Davis is paying for his own salary this way. All these buy games fill the coffers of their athletic department. I'm surprised their football team doesn't play FBS buy games, but their basketball team seems to do the trick. I have a post in another thread, and here's the content: Texas Southern funds...

Re: roster changes

and sorry to hear about RB Henderson .. he gave us some speed, but wasn't going to see many reps the next 2 years with Robinson and Smith in the fold. You can have 5-6 WRs, 3 TEs, and a ton of linemen who get a lot of reps on offense based on the number of open slots for them. If you have a startin...

Re: TEAMS IN BOWLS THAT WOULDNT BEATMOST MVC TEAMS

Here is where Illinois State would be today if we had been working as hard as NIU on football over the decades. If the roles had been reversed, there would be somebody on some message board asking what being FBS has done for ISU's brand. And still, nobody will be able to answer the question. Or at ...

For a second I thought it was a Christmas miracle. Then I read the article and was sorely disappointed. Seemed to me like Dan's comment was trying to generate some faux excitement for fans in caring about this.

Re: TEAMS IN BOWLS THAT WOULDNT BEATMOST MVC TEAMS

Thanks, Timmy. I was told NIU has to buy 15k tix @$25. Might sell 2 or 3k. There goes half the "guarantee". Travel for team and staff will drain more. Even though they are close. The MAC will have to subsidize all bowl teams again somewhat from the ESPN $$$. OK, maybe they won't lose any $$$. Actua...

I have heard from a reliable source that Trace will not be going to college, but is in training to earn a spot overseas and possibly tryout for the draft in a year or 2. I guess Mount Zion Prep is a pro team overseas? I think it would be hard to classify them as a true prep school. http://mtzionpre...
