Re: The state of the kicking game

Count me "in" on the going for it on 4th down in plus territory. Todd Berry often did that. Coach Spack is doing it more often - because of the confidence in the Professor.

Next - Mo State Bears

The ole Bears of Mo State - the Birds need to make sure they do not have a let down. Mo State is coming off of a bye week - I would bet, there will be several gadget plays up their sleeve. I believe they run a little triple option from time to time. Game is at 2:00 - 385 miles from Normal - 5 1/2 to...

Re: Here is the problem with ISU and the community

Crazzy - you are assuming there are a lot of people who are paying attention. There are SO many people now, who do not care about sports and especially football. Attendance for high school games is down. Many teachers are anti-sports - and that sentiment is affecting a lot of people. Then you have t...

Re: He's Got Whatever IT Is!

I am in complete agreement with Timmy - Davis makes decisions and zips the ball. Was it a Great Game for Davis - no - but it was a darn good game. Leadership is an intangible - we do not win that game without. Davis is coming along nicely - had not played in several years - there is going to even be...

Spack Show

I heard confidence in Coach Spack's voice tonight concerning the game on Saturday. When asked about the elevation - he downplayed that a BUNCH - in a round about way said it is much more mental than physical. Team flies out tomorrow. Interesting question about his pregame meal - banana, scrambled eg...

Well Total Red - I certainly hope the throng is Red - ha, ha, ha.

The people that come to my house in Normal to watch Redbird events - know we sing the fight song, followed by a shot of whiskey - at various times before, during, and after the game!!!!

Re: OT/Former Redbird: Red Boots Resigns

Very well said Total Red. Yes, Denver was a very good man, a good speaker, and sounded great. However, his ability to be a head coach and lead a program is less than satisfactory - as his record speaks for itself. ISU football is much better off now - no question about it.

Talked with DirecTV tonight - it is Channel 683 and it takes their Sport Pack Package - $8.99 per month. I made sure, I will have the game on.

Re: Here we go again...

JHBird and a few others are JUMPING to conclusions without any facts. MY may very well may have a big problem - but, my experiences with the NPD would say otherwise. The NPD does NOT even have proof he was driving - otherwise they would have issued other tickets. Something very similar to this happe...

Re: Hancock 2018 attendance ?

I can easily say without a doubt - WJBC predicting torrential downpours all week long for Friday and Saturday - convinced many to make alternate plans. I had 6 in my group tell me at Noon - because of the forecast, the wives made other plans for Saturday. Apparently, they are pussy whipped - I remin...

It took a little time to get rolling - but, once that happened - Holy Smokes was that FUN!!!!! Confidence booster on all fronts - players and coaches. Play selections were good - kept the EIU defense off-balance. Quick strike and Big Play ability on Offense is a Great Threat for defenses to have to ...

Re: SIU athletics $26 million in the hole

The Freshman enrollment at ISU is up 10 percent at a little more than 3,700. Total enrollment announced on 92.9 News was 20,600+ - which is similar to the last two years. At the same time, they said the enrollment at SIU is only half of what it was in 1991. Meanwhile, EIU had an increase in enrollme...

I watched most of the second half of the UNI game - which was a delayed telecast on Comcast + - their offense did not get moving until they changed QBs - the first one #14 looked a lot like Kolbe. Announcers talked about how the UNI O-Line took control of the second half - Montana was lucky UNI did ...

Re: GAME 1: Sept 1- St. Xavier 6:30 p.m.

I can easily tell you Coach Spack had NOTHING to do with scheduling this game. In fact he was NOT happy about this game at all.

This game is 100 percent on the AD - make not mistake about it.

There was a large crowd at Schooners - no change in the format - every Thursday night from 6-7 - suggest you get there by 5:15 or earlier.
