Re: Would MVFC Take a DIII School?

The disagreements at the conference level is not entirely public vs private. Indy State is one of the biggest problems, especially when it came upgrading the basketball referee situation about 6-7 years ago. Anyhow, if it was not for Creighton casting the deciding vote of 6-4 for approval to rename ...

Re: Playoffs for DeJong

Oh Good Lord. Baseball has been and will always be my favorite sport. I watch baseball every night - I do not miss a Cardinals, no matter where I am at and if they are not playing - I will watch another game.

Re: @ SIU 10/12/19

I agree with fourth on his thoughts on the passing game - do not shut it down like we do. As good as our defense is - just a couple more plays from the SIU offense and it is tied up. I would like to know how many of our "sacks" are on second down vs third down? Seems like we are good on second down,...

Re: @ SIU 10/12/19

Yes, very nice to get a Win, which was much needed to get back on track to make the playoffs. Thank goodness we have a good defense. However, that will only do so much, as it is only one-third of the equation. I have NO idea why, why, why our offense does not spread it out, when running instead of t...

Re: Playoffs for DeJong

Congratulations to Paul DeJong on getting to the NLCS!!!! I see where he sent out a tweet on Thursday.

My only recommendation - quit trying to hit a home run with every swing, which is causing you to pull off the ball. Put the ball in play and good things will happen. Strikeouts do nothing.

Re: Tailgating Tips?

There are donor lots and there are several public lots. The public lots are over by Tri-Towers and the Baseball field off of Adelaide. If there are others, I do not know - Parking services would be able to help you out. Just typical tailgating - grills, coolers - no glass bottles. We have a tent, so...

Re: Hotels sold out for next weekend??

Still a good thing to happen - helps to demonstrate the impact of ISU and Redbird Football. What we need for the Athletic Dept to host potential BIG donors - Corporate or otherwise - to get a lead sponsor for the Indoor Practice Facility. I would start with CEFCU.

Re: NDSU Game (10/5/19)

It seems like the last 3 times we have played the Bison - especially up there - they have burned us severely with long passes off of play-action in the first half, particularly in the first quarter. I hope our DBs do not get burned early. Who is left to play receiver that can get open AND catch the ...

Re: Morehead (not a) State

Davis is not the QB for a winning team. If Spack and the marketing department is all about a "national championship" team - Then wake up or we as a fan & donor base are being lied to - Davis is not the QB - period. Case closed.

Re: NIU game thread

What a disappointing effort by Davis and the offense - same problems as the last several years, defense is good, but the offense is terrible, which is a recipe for .500 - beat the bad to average teams and lose to the better teams. Have to have at least a decent offense, otherwise you waste good defe...

Re: Group tickets vs. NIU - $15 istead of $35

I agree with was a very good idea. Unfortunately, my group had already brought our tickets thru Redbird Arena several weeks ago. However, we are taking our tailgate on the road to Dekalb too - I am looking at set-up around the 2:30 time-frame. Planning on BBQ Pulled Pork - Feel Free.
