Re: 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: "Indoor Facility ... #1 priority" ... AD Larry Lyons

Honestly, given the way this whole IPF thing has been botched, I can't believe that Larry Lyons is still employed by the university. The fact that he is, says volumes about the way Dietz views athletics.....very sobering.

Re: Vidette - Student Attendance

This is not a chicken/egg thing. In order for you to expect good crowds you actually have to consistently win. Not the other way around. Get rid of football. Put that money into men's basketball. In a few years ISU would become the next Wichita and Redbird Arena would be full. Men's basketball woul...

Re: Muller losing it??

Is the "Fire Muller" crowd losing it?

I think it's pretty obvious that it's a jab at the NCAA and their policies.

Am I the only one starting to feel the 17-1 was an outlier?
Besides Gregg Marshall, what other MVC coach of recent vintage would not have a 17-1 conf record as an outlier?

Re: Muller seeks to restore 'toughness, effort'

I don't blame people for being pissed about Redbird basketball, this NCAA drought is entirely too long. I'm not in the "fire Muller" camp but I understand why some are. HCDM was 17-1 in conference just 2 years ago and was COY, he didn't just forget how to coach. Yes, he recruited the wrong kids for ...

Re: MVC Transfers

Here’s a novel idea for ISU. End your football program. Put that money toward basketball. Tell Elgin he needs to expand MVC and add Belmont and Murray St or we are out. ....and if you give Doug that ultimatum and he tells you to pound sand, where are you going to go? We'd be a large public universi...

Re: Bracketology

I'll say it again. ... If you're not .500 or better in your own conference, that should be an automatic disqualification from any type of NCAA postseason play. That, and the the regular season conference champ should get the auto-bid. The balance of teams (provided they're .500 or better) can fight...

Re: Words to choke on

Bottom line, we have already invested too much in football.
