Re: 18% of MVFC players from Illinois

So according to the first site google found, wikipedia .... as of 2019, there are 65m people in midwest including these states: ND, SD, NE, KS, MO, IA, MN, WI, IL, IN, MI, OH. IL has 12.7m , which is 20% of the midwest population. Chicago metro by itself has 9.5m. So it is not surprising that 18% of...

Re: 18% of MVFC players from Illinois

I'm guessing a similar % of the midwest states population is also Illinois with Chicago area leading the way.

Re: Scrimmage

This year is this year. The time to worry about Davis 2020 is 2020. I love the comment on Gillium. If he can stretch the middle of the field and beat Cover 2 it will be huge for the offense. This team needs to run the ball. To do that well you have to keep safeties honest and keep 8 out of the box....

Re: Scrimmage

TR-as always, much meat in your observations. As far as TE’s, I’d like to see Gillum (87) have a breakout year. He can really fly downfield for a man of his size. It comes back to Davis and his ability to make accurate throws over the middle and short passes in the flats. I don’t have any “inside” ...

Re: Scrimmage

Got to keep this real ... This talk about Davis considering FBS or NFL for his 5th year would probably shock the rest of MVFC teams who played him last year. I hope that's just a silly rumor with zero basis in truth. Because Davis has a lot to prove this season before there's any more talk on this f...

Re: Scrimmage

Random thoughts: 1. defense must be ahead of offense .. which I'm fine with, they're very good and this is usually the case anyway .. plus they know our plays like the back of their hand. 2. why no stats for 2nd string QB Jefferson ... injured or demoted ? 3. How can we be sure Jame Robinson is stil...

I thought we had a thread about Tre Roberson's year in Canada, but couldn''t find it, so will stick this on this old thread. If you haven't noticed, Tre is having an outstanding year at DB for Calgary, and apparently had a very good year last year. I'll link a couple articles on him, but if you goo...

Re: Depth Chart

I think we really need to spread the field against the top defenses. Putting more people between the TE positions (i.e. 2 TEs and FB) tends to clog tings up no matter how good we block .. sometimes there's just nowhere to go, as we saw at times a year ago ... and were a good run team. But we become ...

Re: Depth Chart

Hamstrings are tough ... got to be smart about rehab or you can guarantee it will become a recurring thing... especially for a WR .. but for any position that requires your to run straight ahead.

Don't mess with hamstrings or concussions ... putting player at risk of reinjiry.

So here is top 40 CFPA top performer watch list candidates. Noting 10 RBs, 2 WRs, and the rest are QBs .. presumably 28 QBs. MVFC graduated a lot of stud SR QBs. Interesting thatof the 12 non-QBs, SDSU who lost their stud QB to graduation, still has a RB and WR on this exclusive list. http://ovcspor...

Re: Schnell has a pretty good night for the Bucs

Putting aside injuries ... I imagine most teams know 90% of their starters, at least 60% of their 2nd string, and even close to 90% of their entire roster from day one of camp. But there are 4 to 8 spots up for grabs usually. The real value of preseason games is figuring out those bubble players ......

I will definitely be going to this game. I have been hoping we could get Mizzou and Indiana on the schedule if we can’t get ILL, NW, or NIU on there. It’s nice to check off Mizzou again, so let’s get Indiana in 2028 and see what we can do in 2023. Heck, while we’re at it, how about Purdue in 2029? ...

I'm betting Proctor gets most of Grad Transfer out Markel Smith's reps .. which was nearly 40% when he wasn't in doghouse. Spack is planning on playoff run .. the more that pans out, the more he will preserve Robinson. Proctor should be ready for prime time reps ... and if Davis shores up pass game,...

To help read this .. for ISUr, we have 7.3 off starters returning and 6.8 def starters for total of 14.1 which ranks 54th out of 126 FCS teams. Note we lost 2 returning starters to grad transfer which if they stayed would have puts at 16.1 returners and 1st in MVFC. Note NDSU is 2nd to last in FCS ....
