Re: Birds @ Loyola

The issue with Muller's recruiting is not the addition of a Hawkins or Yarbrough........I think the issue is is the addition of them without leaders at other positions to balance them out and help get the most out of them.

Re: Birds @ Loyola

Yarbs is the most talented player on this team.....by far. He can create for himself and others. He can score of the dribble, in the post, etc. He has very good basketball skills and ability. He's also the most internally hostile, self-pitying,, insubordinate, insular, blaming, and emotionally frag...

Re: Birds @ Loyola

I wouldn't disagree with most of the points that you're making. I think Milik made the right call attempting the pass to Phil. It was his reaction running back and in the huddle that concerned me. This game may decide our seeding come tournament time, but it is unlikely to decide the fate of our se...

Re: Tinsley

Many people on this board believ athletic = being a tall/long, wirey basketball player that looks the part. Is Tinsley long? Yes. Does he look the part? Yes. Is he fast? Quick? Have lateral quickness? Explosiveness? Agility? Could he play football, soccer, or hockey at a high level? What makes him a...

Re: Redbird Arena floor

Sounds like they're filling in the moat. Hopefully they do the right thing and bring the students closer to the floor as well and don't make the seats overly comfortable.....that's a recipe for fans sitting on their keisters the whole game.

Re: NIU Coach Leaves

If the Packers indeed want and offer Fitz....he could stick around where he is loved, while simultaneously leveraging that offer into a ridiculous contract at NW. By ridiculous, I mean as close to a lifetime contract as one can get. As far as Spack and NIU - I don't see it happening (even if offered...

Re: Tinsley

Tinsley has the lateral movement of a stretch 4, the size of a 3, and perhaps the ball handling and outside shooting ability of perhaps a good 5. He can rebound well for a perimeter guy, but he’s a little bit slow, in athletic for the perimeter, and he’s not a back to the basket player. His entire o...

Redbird has had some nice updates over the years (painting the green and yellow??) vents up top grey, the videoboards, the addition of the suite, etc. It is a beautiful arena. The only thing that really bothers me about it is the incredibly large lifeless, concrete moat that separates the fans from...

Re: Why not St. Louis as the location of the FCS National Championship game??

I guess I'll take this opportunity to remind everyone that St Louis could be the front runner for MLS' next franchise. A 22K seat stadium next to Union Station is planned. https://www.stltoday.com/sports/soccer/st-louis-hailed-as-great-soccer-city-but-mls-vote/article_c2b23429-904a-5854-93a3-69c1f5...

Re: ISU vs Evansville, 1/5/19

Great effort this game... be it fighting for lose balls, denying the basketball, etc. The effort (and basketball IQ) were top notch today. Shooting is still a little shaky, but we out hustled them. Big win.

Re: NIU fans not happy about playing us

I am definitely looking forward to this game next year, as well as the home schedule in general. I don't love opening up conference play vs. the Bison (would prefer a mid Oct. to first week of Nov. matchup), but it should be a nice year. Also, I'm not sure who gets the credit, but love that we play ...
