2018 recap, 2019 needs ...

So just copying my post in other thread .. would love to hear other thoughts about what happened in 2018 that needs the most attention/improvement in 2019. Context of my response was a response to Madbird observation that given playoff results, our losses don't look as bad in hindsight. ************...

Re: FCS coaching changes ... couple big ones

Bisons pick up QB transfer from Iowa State. https://twitter.com/TommyBirch famous last words .. but Bison lose a lot of seniors next year. If we get our offensive passing game a little more proficient, I'm liking our chances of contending next year. I'll admit .. I had much higher hopes for this pa...

Re: Brady Davis

4th you're not getting a building in 5 years. Or 10. Maybe 20. Even 20 years is dreaming. Horton's not big enough. Even if it was, campus rec uses the hell out of it now. You'd be screwing a lot of students over. Walk in there on a Tuesday night. Taking it away from them wouldn't be right. fully ag...

Re: Signing Date 12/19

so I hope someone refilled the ink cartridges on the fax machine before they left Kauffman tonight. Tomorrow morning will be interesting, we did well a year ago with early signing date, and lost very few of them by Feb or Jun. Spack knows how to get serious commits only. I also recall they do NOT ma...

Re: Robinson chosen AP All-American

Eh .. as true FR all you have is OTAs until August camp starts with coaches. My info led me to believe he was at least 10 lbs overweight his FR year .. maybe more. He has since toned things up considerably under our strength program ... hard to do that in one summer as FR I'd you show up over weight...

Re: Robinson chosen AP All-American

ironically, he was so good in HS, he got here and was out of shape. Then had an injury mid-year of his true FR season. then came back too early for UCA playoff game, but we lost so it didn't matter. My point is ... think where he could be if not for that .. say if he would have redshirted. I've 2nd ...

Re: Indoor Facility News

4th Intramural sports. I don't think it produces any revenue, but the participants foot a hefty bill that goes to athletics in the form of student fees. Virginia. Schools build indoor facilities for off-season workouts. Not just for football but for most spring and fall sports. That's when athletes...

Re: Brady Davis

I don't think the biggest issue is where you are from, hometown or state. I think the biggest issue is where you live now. Growing up in Illinois as the seasons change you had a chance to acclimate and while I am not trying to tell you at all that you get used to below zero wind chills, but if you ...

yeah, I suppose if used for various sports (volleyball or basketball) events, especially if it helps generate profitable revenue, my turf idea would never happen.

Re: Brady Davis

I thought we solved the problem of a place to throw the ball in the other thread about the indoor facility...toss the ball in the bitter cold, snow, slush, sleet and freezing rain at Hancock! Don't let 10" or 12" of snow impede your development you bunch of spoiled millennial sissies! An indoor fac...

Re: Brady Davis

And btw we've also played regular season games in the snow, slush, sleet and freezing rain at Hancock. Sometimes you get to experience all 4 in the same exact game. yep, I was at the NDSU game a year ago too. It was something to endure .. with a 15-20 mph sustained wind from the north, game started...

A couple of pieces on B Davis.

Re: MVFC with two in Semi's

I think it would have been all MVFC final in Frisco if SDSU were in other half. And as good as NDSU is this year, SDSU knows how to game plan them better than most. But oh paper, Bison are 2+ TDs better than everyone in final 4 .. though SDSU could make them sweat more than anyone else just because ...
