Re: @ Missouri St - 3 pm - ESPN3

Wow. Should have seen that coming. The FIRST thought that went through my mind after they gave us the ball on the out of bounds near the end when Fayne CLEARLY was the last one to touch it was, "Crap. The ball never lies." Not a superstitious guy, but held true today. What a crap way to end the game.

Re: Hein

Guess I'm a little confused as to why the opinions of, "He is a great, hard-working, selfless kid who represents our university and team well" and "He is not a very good basketball player, and our team is better when he is not on the court" can't exist in the same universe. Dude is easy to like and ...

Re: OT: Former Players

Slightly OT, but didn't see a place for former coaches so decided to put it here. Taylor Stubblefield is new WR coach at Miami (FL) and Holmon Wiggins is the new WR coach at Alabama. Good for them. Two of the nicest guys you'll meet.

Re: Indoor Facility News

4th Intramural sports. I don't think it produces any revenue, but the participants foot a hefty bill that goes to athletics in the form of student fees. Virginia. Schools build indoor facilities for off-season workouts. Not just for football but for most spring and fall sports. That's when athletes...

Re: Lovie Smith gets a two year extension with the Illini!

Actually thought it was a pretty good move. Just maybe poor timing after the Iowa debacle. I'm not an Illini hater. My wife's an alum, and I watch quite a few of their games. Their defense has definitely been awful, but they've been making steady improvement overall. Offense was actually pretty exci...

Re: Spring practice right around the corner....who is pumped?!!

I am always pushing for beef at LB so have to say I'm happy with the way things look. Also no one has mentioned Vandenburg (sp?) who Spack has mentioned as a solid prospect. Looks like a promising group. Madbird .. you know x's and o's way better than me. The top defenses in our conference always c...

Re: "Redbirds Rising" Goal: $25 Million Indoor Facility

What I have found lacking is the communication about projects people donate to. If I make a contribution towards a capital campaign, such as the Indoor Practice Facility, at least provide an update. Some people may be willing to donate more as we get closer to make it a reality. This. Provide a gen...

I don't think it's done yet, I just know they were planning on doing it sometime this spring. I think the plan is to start after the spring game. Anyone know when the spring game is? I'm hoping they do more than just 'flip the bird' on the turf...be nice if it's something really noticeable. From wh...

Re: 5 fouls...

I think in LUC's case, they just don't foul much. They don't reach and grab. There were some they got away with, but it had nothing to do with today's outcome IMHO. It brings us something that I have been thinking about for awhile, now. Have you noticed we don't play the foul game like just about e...

Another disappointing Sunday in St Louis the first weekend of March. It is great that we have gotten to the championship game more than any team in the conference the last decade but it sure would be nice to win one again. I'm starting to wonder if our style of play is a factor in our Sunday showin...

Re: #3 Illinois State vs #1 Loyola

It was a transition year in terms of coaches as well as players. This team will be better. I want to believe this, but man, I really don't know. Getting a year older doesn't always = getting a year better. I'm afraid some of our supporting players just are what they are and that what they are, as w...

Re: #3 Illinois State vs #1 Loyola

IMO, this teams biggest issue was depth (our D sucked too, though). You go from having a "big 3" on the floor, and then you look up and Hein, Gassman, and Bruninga are all on the floor at the same time for extended stretches. Not a great recipe for success...

Re: #3 Illinois State vs #1 Loyola

5 total fouls on LU. they are magicians. JOKE blaming the refs for game results? WTF ISU got beat today. We only drew 5 fouls as most of the game we did not nor could not attack the basket I agree it was frustrating, but they could have fouled us 25 times and I still don't think we would have won.

How horrible is EC if he can’t crack this lineup?? I can't understand this. I felt like he was starting to make strides at the end of the season, but then nothing...
