Re: WIU Game (10/19/2019)

If Redbird Football is going to make the playoffs, they need to beat WIU by no small margin. The Birds need to be 6-2 after homecoming. With a split of the last 4 games (Gonna have to beat at least one of SDSU, UNI or YSU) and MOST. They end up 8-4, with the loss vs NIU not hurting as much as the o...

lawson .. rough times for sure for several schools in your situation. What about the predident that was just pushed out ... I never rewad up on the details of that ouster. Was he part of the problem or just a victim of no win situation ?? A bit of both. He definitely shared some of the blame...didn...

Re: In-state athletic budgets..

We're a combined 0-13 this year and are probably looking down the barrel of a combined 1-23 record...if we're lucky. We're DII's masquerading as DI's...don't compare yourself to us. I am not a member of your board, but I wanted to say thanks for your very lengthy thread about the issues WIU is faci...

Re: @ SIU 10/12/19

Offensively: Get JR the ball, teams will stack the box but we can run the ball. The o-line with Himmelman and Solomon on right looks pretty solid. BD played with confidence and got started early. Love that he spread the ball around a little. Jacob Carl with his 1st career reception then you go to r...

Re: @ SIU 10/12/19

That was a perfectly executed onside kick ... unexpected and blooped it less than 15 yards to far sideline. Virtually unstoppable if you dont expect it ... give their kicker some credit .. he kicked it perfectly. Nothing we could have done about it unless it were obvious inside kick situation .. it ...

This is the first year in a while where MVFC has what looks like this weak at the bottom. Though looks like USD is finding their stride. And SIU is having an ok year ... they gave SDSU a tough game for 3 qtr at their place last week .. down just 5 after 3 qtrs before losing 28-10. So right now, it M...

showed some spark on offense and defense, but a goofy game .. felt like we would pull away, but one thing or another would go wrong on offense to end our drive or on defense to extend their drive. I think we had 3 easy picks dropped that would have ended drives. They got half their rush yards on tha...

Re: @ SIU 10/12/19

Need a strong 2nd half and this team is right back in the playoff hunt ... pass game looks solid right now. Davis is looking much more confident than first 3 games. One knock ... that was a goofy looking trick play .. handoff to Robinson going left, circles back right, throws to a fully covered Davi...

Re: @ SIU 10/12/19

Up 14-0 at half .. defense had been good and opportunistic/lucky .. they did get 2 decent drives, but we stopped a fake FG (some luck, receiver was open) and then got a nice pick at goal line right before half. Pass rush is very good so far. Offense looks ok .. passing is solid, Davis does look conf...

I also find it interesting that our athletic budget is more than WIU and EIU combined... congrats to them for having competitive football on a shoe string budget..

And while i do not believe Spack would be successful at FBS level, because he is not wired to compete like that Fourth you're always full of info and I respect that. But i think you missed the movie where Spack was a 1st Team BigTen defender and an honorable-mention All-American...and I think he si...

Re: 75 Million to the Bison....

ISU has a lot going for it, particularly given economics involved in state of Illinois. They have always been very careful with their finances and budget .. this is why we are thriving so well, while many other similarly situated schools are not. The fact that we are careful with our money is partly...

So the UMass team they beat is currently ranked last in FBS by Massey .. they are 1-5, with their only win against 0-5 Akron, who is ranked 2nd to last in FBS. Reviewing their year to date stats, they are pretty good offensively .. actually stronger in run game than pass game, compared to prior year...

I know people want to get on Spack, but having been around for a while I appreciate what he has done. Jim Heacock 37-49-2 (.432) Todd Berry 24-24 (.500) Denver Johnson 45-46 (.495) Brock Spack - 74-45 (.622) Even if you take just from 2016 his 21-18 overall record would be better than almost any IS...
