Good job on Spring practice coverage

We're often so quick to criticize, that we should praise some things as well. I thought ISUs interns did a good job covering spring practice. Of course we always want more, but the photos, video clips, and player interviews were well done. We don't want to give away info, but it's nice to hear from ...

Re: Offensive backfield depth

Except that some of these "QBs" were recruited as athletes. They were given a chance to make it as a QB, before realizing they'd play some other position. I remember Todd Berry saying that he recruited lots of high school QBs knowing that they weren't suited for the position in college. By being the...

Re: Offensive backfield depth

We signed a freshman QB in the early signing period, Jack Baltz, more of a traditional passer. I doubt he'll be even the backup as long as Davis is here, but he might be the guy in the future. Tall, skinny for now.

Re: Brian Adams leaves team

I’m pretty sure we expected him to be RB1 in the future so this stings a bit. I wish him well. Competitive kids sometimes want to move to assure themselves of playing time. I never saw enough to expect anything specific. Under new rules that he could play in a few games and still redshirt, I think ...

Re: Two Deep Offense

Pretty sure Bones replaced Hirsch for the last few games last year. Will be interesting to see how that plays out. Solomon simply has more experience, so I think you're right there. This does look really solid. We'll use multiple receivers at times, as well as two tight ends. Those guys can all expe...

Re: Roster changes

Spack might want to start thinking about why more RS SRs are opting out of program once they graduate. Coincidence or trend ? This is a trend only in that the rule permitting grad transfers isn't very old. Just a couple seasons ago his options would have been to quit playing or to play as a Redbird...

Re: Purdue's Jeff Brohm to Louisville

Uiuc's AD is smart to extend Smith. It helps with recruiting right now, and likely lowers the future buyout so a change could still be made next year if desired. The buyout was too pricey for a change now according to many reports, so he was going to be the coach again in 2019 anyway. The Illini hav...

Complete collapse for the season. Time to focus on developing the younger guys. Preserve redshirts that can still be saved. We look good in a team photo, but we clearly and repeatedly have been manhandled and out physicalled by other teams. I don't know if it's recruiting, development, or coaching, ...

Re: Indoor Facility News

I have come to the conclusion over the last couple of years that there is little appreciable difference between the MVFC and non-P5 FBS football. Competition level, financials, exposure for the university. Any ROI benefit you want to look at. This should be interesting ;) But that is IMHO. We share...

Re: Indoor Facility News

While I understand the desire to promote progress toward this goal, in the fundraising world of higher ed they don't typically announce a specific project as a campaign until they are most of the way there. This one may be different, as it is readily acknowledged as a need.

Re: ISU vs NDSU....GAME ON.. LET'S ROCK THE DOME!!

NDSU is the better team and they're playing like it. But this game should be 14-7. We had 1st and goal from the 5 and threw it twice...why? That INT was a killer. Pound the f***ing ball there.

Re: NDSU game 10/20

Our wins have hidden our penalties. We need to play cleaner as opportunities to make a big play are few, and we can't afford for penalties to take away any of them. I see this as a tight game. I do think we'll run, but we'll have less success than usual. I also think we'll slow down NDSUs runners. W...

Re: Coach Spack show

He was emerging as a likely starter next to Ridgeway until he got hurt. He did play multiple snaps last week and he will play tomorrow. He'll play in the bigger DL spot as opposed to a quicker, lighter Defensive End. NDSU is essentially the same size we are on the lines. They are, however, generally...
