Re: Position changes

Hatfield is an interesting move .. I think this kid clearly wants to play offense. We could use a speedier tailback type .. but why not try him at WR. Hadden is an surprising move .. very disappointed to see Hadden move from WR to LB .. was hoping he was one who could have been a diamond in the roug...

Re: Redbird Football Game broadcasts

I'm not at our cabin where we have DirectTV, but it looks to me like the Colorado State game may be available on one of the regional sports channels (AT&T Sportsnet) on the DirectTV sports package. Will follow up in a few days when I get a look at it, but if you have DirectTV or can find a friendly...

Re: Hancock Southwest Entrance

In reference to point #2...maybe that is one reason why the WIU budget is in the toilet. Bad decisions and tossing money at it to fix their BAD DECISIONS! I would rather see a different team on the schedule as well but is it worth the cost of what the buyout would be? I don't know what the buyout f...

Re: Hancock Southwest Entrance

Buy outs happen on occasion .. Ball St bought us out of our end of home and home series in 2014 ... they were smart since we would have likely beat them in 2014. But while I partly get your point about compounding mistakes, I don't agree with applying it in this situation. It was stupid to schedule ...

Re: LB Group .. warning, objects in mirror may be larger than ....

This Jason Harris change is probably not much of a change, he was Jack before, and pretty much will play the same as an OLB. Asked to drop back on occasion.

Re: LB Group .. warning, objects in mirror may be larger than ....

thread drift coming ... is Ridgeway a lock at NT ?? Love his Bio .. always like to see these 4 sport ahtletic lineman types, especially when they also wrestled .. plus played both sides of line. Signed at 285 lbs, rostered as FR at same 285, and now reportedly 325. I do wonder how well he will move ...

Re: LB Group .. warning, objects in mirror may be larger than ....

Great LB depth....which is what you need for a 3-4 defense. Harris might even have more sacks than the 3.5 he registered last year from the D-end spot. Does that mean Swaine is 1st team D-end? Will Lewan or Podkulski be on the other end, opposite Romeo? Barry opting to graduate and Horton being dis...

Re: Early workouts

As a guy who had very high hopes for SO Kolbe, he did really struggle a lot as JR Kolbe ... I have been vocal and put more blame on OC Dicken than Kolbe .. We've differed on this issue. You hold Dicken responsible for Kolbe's Jr. season drop off ('17) and I've pointed to the youthful offensive line...

Re: Redbird Football Game broadcasts

So to recap ... 10 of 11 on ESPN+ (or ESPN3), including 4 of those 10 also on NBC SC. Will suck if there is no option ($ or free) for our FBS game. But putting aside the $5 subscription aspect (there are bigger things to complain about than this) and zilch for FBS game .. this is much improved TV co...

Re: LB Group .. warning, objects in mirror may be larger than ....

the other thing about all this LB size and depth .. should make for great special team coverage guys along the inside, along with all of our DBs on the outside .. and our DBs are also nice size .. mostly 6-0 to 6-2 and 190 to 210 lbs. This is the profile Spack seems to like. back to LB group ... at ...

Re: Aug 11 scrimmage today

2 names with big plays that were great to hear: offense ... WR Kentre Patterson had 3 catches 67 yards. If he can be a presence on outside/deep, that will take a ton of pressure off slot receiver Schnell, TE Petkovic and our RBs. Pattterson is the track star who was all MVFC as FR in high hurdles. D...
