Re: September 12th

My little brother (he's actually taller than me now) was working in the Pentagon at the time. He worked one wing over from where the plane hit. His office filled with smoke and he had to run for it, but he was okay. He knew some of the people who died though. Years later I visited him over Thanksgiv...

Re: Could ISU ever get a new practice facility..

NIU had one donor donate $3M, which was close to half of the amount needed. that is what we need to get this project done Wow. I would have thought that place would have cost way more than 6 or 7 million. I didn't get to look inside it though. It's a big pole barn and more than good enough. https:/...

Re: Soccer

Tough loss Sunday night to the Illini with a 1.5 minute left penalty kick. The Illini had a lot of tall big athletes, but the Birds played physical. Illinois had a whole week to prepare. Where did they get those big tall athletes! They sure didn't have them a few years ago. Illiniois might be getti...

Re: Could ISU ever get a new practice facility..

I saw a short video on the ESPN+ broadcast last Saturday that the Redbird Rising campaign met and exceeded its goal. Was not some money supposed to be set aside for the indoor facility from that campaign? I think I saw some strings on here about that before. If there was some plan for money in the ...

Re: Athlon Sports

Wow, 8th. I'll definitely take the over on that. I'm thinking a 4th place finish, with a second round exit. This year's team has so many unknown players it's kinda hard to predict. There's a chance we could be good, but Boyd and Fisher really have to major scorers. With Copeland, who knows if he can...

Volleyball - Redbird Classic!

Who's coming this weekend? This field is so good with Marquette and Illinois both ranked. I might have to go to all the games. UCF isn't ranked so I'm hoping that's a win. The other two games will be really tough, even at home.

I also can't wait to see how RBA looks with the new seating.

Why can't we just make Horton a little bigger ( longer?) and put a new façade on it.

Re: Morehead (not a) State

I was little surprised to see Baltz coming in before Jefferson. Did he rise up in the depth chart or did I miss something? I always thought highly of Jefferson, but maybe Baltz is a special talent. Get him in early in a few games, then redshirt if needed. Too bad Jefferson fumbled on that run. He re...

I'm guessing that coach has seen that the planning that went into last season's team went poorly.

Re: OT: Former Players

I agree with that Minor league football idea. NFL teams carry a bunch of 'developmental' players that they could loan out to these clubs. Let the NFL team decide how many of these players they want to retain the rights to. As long as they want to pay the increased salaries then let them. It's a win ...

Re: Jefferson Transferring

I thought JJ had the best chance to turn things around next year. I don't understand why he couldn't play defense better than Hein? He has better quickness, etc. At times he played D with intensity. Players shouldn't have been blowing right past him. Seems like he just shut down at some point, and f...

Re: Spencer Schnell - nice pro day results

If was fun to watch him develop over the years. When he first started playing I never thought he'd end up with the career he had. We need to keep finding players like him.
