Re: At Western Michigan 2021

A trip to Lincoln Nebraska would be fun. https://fbschedules.com/ncaa/nebraska/ Nebraska is one of the best college gameday experiences. It looks like they have a good package deal worked out with NIU - 3 games on an every-other year basis. I wouldn't mind scheduling something like that with a scho...

Re: John Beilein leaving Michigan

It'd be great to go play over at UT. Muller has obvious connections to Yak, and has a previous relationship with Shaka after doing a H-H in his first few years at ISU while Shaka was at VCU. I see little chance of that happening. Shaka needs wins and a tourney run. He’s 71-66 overall, 10 games unde...

Re: Redbird Arena Renovations

Has anyone had their call to pick their seats yet? How did that go? It went very smooth. It took a total of 7 minutes from the guy saying hi to processing payment for the seats. The map worked well. My only suggestion would be for the seats to have said: Mandatory Donation: $X Season Ticket Price: ...

No question the best part of this run is Benson getting cocky.

Re: ISU Game 3 vs #1 Dallas Baptist 3 pm

Was this the most "Redbird" way to end a tournament/regular season, or what? Luckily, they should still make the NCAAs. This reminded me of being up big at the half vs UNI in the championship in StL and ultimately blowing a 14 point lead. I think part is overall mentality we have to overcome as a d...

Re: ISU Game 3 vs #1 Dallas Baptist 3 pm

I don’t care how we lost. The MVC putting s losers bracket winner in a better scenario than the a winners bracket finalist is a joke. Doug Elgin, Jack Watkins etc. need serious help. They have zero clue how to run a tournament. I think part of the problem is Elgin seems to care about two things: co...

Re: "Indoor Facility ... #1 priority" ... AD Larry Lyons

ISU may have been a "fall back" school for some. I can tell you it wasn't for me. I was accepted to both and there was no question where I was going as a music major (at the time). UIUC was my fall back. Quinn makes a good point. Where you go to school depends on the program you want. ISU is compet...

Re: Redbirds projected IN NCAA Tournament

I have seen us as high as a 2 but that was going back to Vandy (#2 overall). Regardless of 2 seed or 3, this is huge for us. Winning game 1 of the tourney will go a long way toward that bid too.

100%. He's leaving the roster short intentionally well before the annual Walking Boot Invitational hits in October. He just doesn't learn from past mistakes. It would be nice to have more post depth. If Torres is eligible, which I can’t see him being signed if the NCAA didn’t signal a likeliness to...

Re: Ricky Torres

Coaches generally know or not if someone will actually get a waiver or not. Sometimes the waiver process is a Hail Mary and sometimes it’s a way to convince a player you’re fighting for them. So like Nick Norton, they know at Drake he’s very, very likely not getting one. However, in the rare instan...

Re: ISU over NIU listed as a possible FCS over FBS upset

Lets pump the brakes a little bit, while NIU is just a directional school and a total dumpster fire with awful academics, declining enrollment and no fan base, their football program remains solid and will take a great effort to go into their place and get the win. Personally, I don't see the point...

Re: 2019 6’3” SG Preston Urbancic

I wouldn't be surprised if we're recruiting his brother, Peyton (6'5", D1 offer from Army)

It seems like these are Belcher guys, as Preston was connected to Indiana State. Seems like a good shooter with an excellent academic profile.

The other thing is he’s coached at every single level except the NBA. He could have realized this might be his only shot to coach at that level.

Both coaches and ADs would have had to sign off on this. It’s on the schools in this scenario. If they feel the teams they will get to play are worth the risk, I’m ok with it. I’ll take the Cinci game and an opportunity to play WKU in round 2 versus the minor chance we end up paired vs Valpo. This h...
