Re: BEAT Eastern

I would expect a close game. Last year was last year and that defense was just incredible that day versus EIU. The D looked good last Saturday but it was against an NAIA team so the jury is still out. I don't like platooning of QB's anymore than I liked Co-Coordinators. I think you have to pick some...

Re: Rankings...smh

. So here it goes, ISU is 7th in the Hero's up from 12th +5 spots, Stats poll 19th up from 21st +2, Coaches poll 20th from 21st +1, and in that poll there are 7 team o-1 of the Redbirds, including being jumped by a losing team. Going to be a long season in the coaches poll at this point...lol I don...

Re: Here is the problem with ISU and the community

Media exposure is what sells 70% of the tickets to athletic events in this country. It isn't about anything more than media and ISU is in the Chicago media market. As long as that is true, ISU (or ANY college sports) will fall behind even the most minor news for any of the 5 major pro teams in Chic...

Re: GAME 1: Sept 1- St. Xavier 6:30 p.m.

I hope they don't schedule any more games like this. It was probably a good thing to get some game reps with a whole new coaching staff and a bunch of new starters but this was the most boring game I have watched in a long time. EIU played Arkansas yesterday and while they got beat bad, they played ...

Re: GAME 1: Sept 1- St. Xavier 6:30 p.m.

Love Brady Davis releasing the ball ASAP and not picking dingleberries in the pocket ala #16 He has not played in while I know but Davis does not look very accurate. Lots of balls sailing on him and the receivers had to adjust to balls behind them. Nice job by Petko on the TD on a ball that was not...

Butler just kicked FG to take 23-21 lead with :04 left in game ... holy crap, Bo Pelini's head probably just exploded.
Butler wins and Pelini's got trouble. The Penguins head to West Virginia next week. The Mountaineers are handling Tennessee right now. Looks like 0-2 start for YSU!

Re: GAME 1: Sept 1- St. Xavier 6:30 p.m.

Redbirds win! I will not even try to guess at the score in a game like this. I expect to see the Redbird big and strong O-Line clear the way for the running game. The StX linebackers and defensive backs have a long day trying to bring down the Redbird running backs. Brady probably runs for some big ...

Re: Redbirds at Illini 9/5/2020

In regards to the game with the Illini, I am thinking that game may mandate a road trip from southeast Virginia to Memorial Stadium. I have been to Memorial Stadium to watch the Illini on quite a few different occasions but that was a long time ago. It was before the Red Grange statue was placed at ...

Re: Redbirds at Illini 9/5/2020

Another thought about EIU, I know won't matter to many of you, but it's "history" - this is a long-standing rivalry, there have been many connections between the programs, coaches coming from one to the other, etc. back in the day. Times change, sure. The schools themselves may have grown in differ...

Re: 1 week to go!!!!

Watching the St X game at Marian(Indy), they look horrible, it will be a joke next week. Right now the score is Marian 38 St X 0 halftime. Who Scheduled this Game that does not count next Week? Game on ISC sports network Yes...this could be pretty ugly next week. http://www.muknights.com/article/62...

Re: 2018 Captains

I believe the players elect most if not all captains .. interesting that Kolbe still got nod. Cool to see Kirk in back in fold. I think you're right. With Kolbe, if you watch some of the summer camp recap videos, you can see him leading stretches, breaking down the team, and always front and center...

Re: QB Competition update

Kolbe was not demoted against SDSU. He was held out due to injury. I don't recall an injury to Kolbe. I recall it being a strategic coaching decision for the SDSU game. Here is an article from the Pantagraph after that game. Coach Spack is quoted speaking of Broadnax: "We went into the game thinkin...

Re: QB Competition update

I really don't want to start a fight but incomplete practice stats mean nothing. In fact if the Staff is not going to give you everything, they should give you nothing. 1's against 2's stats mean nothing. Kolbe being down after learning he's #2 does mean something. It's tough and ya gotta feel for ...

Re: QB Competition update

One thing we know for certain...Coach Spack was totally unhappy with what was going on with the offense the past two years and last year particularly! Virtually a whole new offensive coaching staff and nobody is in a safe zone on this team. Even if you play well everybody's job is open to a change i...

Re: QB Competition update

Like a lot of you, I am surprised but if the coaches know who they want then make the decision. The Birds have solid depth in the event of injury or if Davis does not play so well. I don't care who starts...just win!
