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

Just caught up on their message board .. it was pretty constructive until a couple posters apparently caught up on this thread .. then wheels kind of fell off. So I would say it is about 50/50 split in terms of their fans respecting our program versus otherwise ... sort of like our message board. Th...

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

I do believe the ISU has a more talented squad in all the skill positions and depth. A big win will get an invite to the MAC. In 2020 , Davis will be at his best and the o-line will be big and seasoned. If ISU ponds the illni into the turf, would CUSA or AAC invite ISU as well? Crazzy, I haven't ev...

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

NIU was certainly better than CSU in 2018 ... they were much more comparable in 2017 when CSU was a very solid G5 team, but CSU lost a lot from their offense in 2018 - this is why we won easily - that and we caught them by suprise. I haven't yet checked for NIU roster losses ging into 2019 ... but I...

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

NIU is a top 4 MAC program most years. Given how many good FBS games we've got slated, I am perfectly ok playing a good MAC footbal program every once in a while, instead of a P5 FBS program. Putting asside STX game, I think we've done a pretty good job "trying" to get good and lucrative FBS games m...

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

They were good MAC team a year ago ... not yet sure if they lost much. I expect an evenly matched game. A win would not be surprising.

Fired up my google machine and did some research ... A little bit of perspective on what Fiske does. It purposely limits its list based on certain objective and subjective criteria. It purposely only does these profiles for 320 colleges across the US, Canada, Great Britiain, & Ireland. It includes c...

Re: Davis Gets Another Year

Uh ... let's be real .. I may be more optimistic this year than last but any talk about NFL is ridiculous at this point. And one good season will not do the trick for NFL scouts .. period. Lets fix our past game first. Being a little pessimistic aren't you Fourth! I think Patrick Mahomes had better...

Re: Spencer Schnell

good for him ... probably just needs to add some muscle mass for next level, but he deserves a long look. Might have to bounce around a bit while he figures it all out and puts on a little weight. Coming from a fan who has been underestimating him for 3 years.

Good luck .. way to represent !!!

Great points in this thread, right now I see ISU being a tweener school and hard to compare us to another Midwest university. Clearly we are better than the Illinois directional schools, but not to the level in national perception as Kansas St and Oklahoma St, which I feel is a shame and blame Spri...

Re: "Transfer Portal"

This is pretty cool for players to help market themselves if things are not working out at their current school. I'm all for player fulfilling their commitment to a school, but like anything .. it is 2 way street and sometimes it just makes sense to move on. A player could do everything that is aske...
