The AAC - the conference everyone is looking to leave for "greener" pastures. All of a sudden, Creighton and Wichita may rethink their situation - possible, but not likely.

Re: Redbird Arena Renovations

It is the same argument at every school - even high school. Every sport seems to think football and basketball get more resources. Well guess what - What sport do people pay to see? What sports generate advertising revenue? What sports get TV contracts? What sports generate alumni and supporters don...

Re: 2019 NCAA Baseball Tournament

If Louisville is as dominant as Jamar seems to think they are - then why are they the #7 seed?? Also, I believe the Tar Heels won the ACC Tournament. Let's hope Louisville has the same arrogance as Jamar - throw a #3 or #4 starter in the first game vs UIC and get beat. Then the Birds take care of In...

Re: ISU Game 3 vs #1 Dallas Baptist 3 pm

Yes, the pitching depth is a weakness - but that is being addressed in recruiting. For the most part, the format worked in protecting the top four seeds. However, there definitely needs to be a change on yesterday's situation. The first two games of the day need to be flip-flopped. It should be the ...

Scott Warnum on the ESPN + broadcast last night pointed out the Redbirds are #3 in the nation in road victories - Wow - what a stat. For the folks who do not regularly watch Fox Sports Midwest - Warnum is the Pre-Game and Post-Game host for the Cardinals and Blues broadcasts.

Re: ISU game 2 vs #3 Indiana St 7 pm

Redbirds won a wild one 10-7 - in the sixth inning Indy State scored 6 in the top and the Birds responded with 5 to retake the lead at 8-7. The top of the sixth for the Redbirds, was a disaster that was started with a poor decision. After taking a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the 5th - we walk the lead...

MVC Tournament Announcement

On the MVC web-site - in the Championship Format discussion - "... the top four seeds based on regular season finish a buy into Day 2 of the tournament,..." - I guess they think the teams have purchased their way in versus using the proper work - bye.

That is a little bit of stretch for Banterra for the size of the deal, but good for them for supporting SIU. Heartland Bank & Trust headquartered in Bloomington is twice the size, however, the top officers and primary family are Illini - part of the difference. All other institutions only have branc...
