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: MVC Transfers

When you see good, young players leaving good private universities like Valpo.....which has a pretty solid young head coach.....you know the future for the Missouri Valley Conference is not bright. And we have one person to thank for this. Doug Elgin. Who allowed the college basketball world to mov...

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: College Basketball Coaching Carousel

I'd be interested in Billy Kennedy Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk I think a lot of schools will be interested in Billy Kennedy.

Re: Words to choke on

Bottom line, we have already invested too much in football. The only focus now should be getting Spack the “game-changing” indoor facility he so desires but all the while holding him to his promise of bigger and better things; and by “bigger and better things” I’m talking about contending regularly...

I hope that saying doesn’t stick around because it certainly didn’t mean anything this year Two sayings that need to g...

I think it's evident that the problem lies with those above HCDM. Illinois State needs real leadership in the athletics dept.

Re: Thoughts for this week and going into 2019-2020--HCDM centric

Some good points made...... As much as I want this abomination of a season to be over, I want one more victory to get to a "winning season". As bad as 17-16 would be, I must prefer it to 16-16. I think one change in the staff is inevitable, two coaches leaving is almost as likely. I think they may h...

Re: Watching some games on ESPN this evening....

Agree that Jankovich was not long for ISU. From the very beginning. I could see it. I do think there is a good chance if he hangs around one more season, he would be making way more $$$ today. And a P5. The $$$ was not that much better. None of that goofy CIW crap. When Nic left, he was not thinkin...

Jank along with everything else took our best player with him, the jerk. His soft schedule was an embarrassment to the whole league.
As much as I agree with you that Jank's schedules were embarrassing, Moore was gone no matter what.... he thought he was above the MVC/Illinois State.
