Great point Quinn! The academic side shows that fundraising for Illinois State is very possible, the athletics side consistently drops the ball, hence the growing apathy.

Re: Fire Larry Lyons

You really should stop reading this board and find something you enjoy to do with your time given your admitted apathy. You just wasted all our time reading your comment! Have a great life! Apathy is genuinely setting in with a lot of those in the Illinois State community. Chastising those that are...

Re: Hero Sports has Redbirds contending (top 16) in 2019

"teams who made the big list but ultimately not the Top 10 are Kennesaw State, Montana State, Duquesne, Illinois State, Towson and Nicholls." Wow! That’s the kind of company we keep??!!

Re: Birds @ Loyola

The team played hard and competed very well. Let’s be honest, this is the ceiling for this group. Muller has not recruited well over the last 3 years and this is the result. This program needs a bit more talent to win the MVC and much more talent if they want to be relevant nationally.

This thread will now die since it was moved to the general forum, but hope the talk continues. That’s by design.

Re: Fire Larry Lyons

ISU athletics are bifurcated by having the two main sports in different conferences with a different level of play which eliminates scheduling, marketing, and promotional synergies. ISU basketball and football can not change conferences for the better if it was ever desired as there is no place to ...

You are absolutely kidding yourselves if you think ISU can compete as an AD on the same level as any P5 conference team. The Big Ten Network gives each school for doing nothing else but playing their scheduled games $50 million a year. PER SCHOOL. It would take ISU decades to have $50 million in re...

Re: Fire Larry Lyons

Lyons is a bean counter, not an athletic director. He should be replaced ASAP. Pointing out that Larry really only “accomplished” things with student fees and existing funds does not really a defense of Larry, make. I’ve been saying for some time that we need a near (if not total) purging of athleti...

Rock bottom. Mid majors destroying us. How has University of friggin’ Central Florida built such a powerhouse athletic program? Seriously, they are light years ahead of us. They have leadership that cares about advancing their athletic dept, Illinois State does not. It’s not rocket science.

Re: Shox thumped by Oklahoma

Do not disagree with many things you state at all but the path ISU is on leads to exactly where they reside and it is not changing. One thing I disagree is that ISU football will only take ISU to where it wants to go. That is only IF ISU has football. If ISU did not have football ISU would have opt...
