Re: Street and Smith and Athlon

My guess is that they all were looking for the same thing...a home game to balance the schedule. And when they couldn't find a Division 1 team to travel, they looked at D2 and NAIA. If everyone insists on a home game, then you can't match up these programs. We think we have it bad paying St. X to d...

Re: WOAH!

If you're willing to go back further we played a NAIA school in 1991 that's in the same conference as St. X. That school was St. Francis of IL and the final score was Illinois St. 19 St. Francis 17 with the Redbirds pulling it out with a late FG. I believe it was a 48 or 49 yard field goal with no ...

Illinois State (at-large bid)

The Redbirds may wind up lamenting a season-opening game against in-state NAIA member St. Xavier, which won't help their playoff resume.

Re: Arch Madness Officials

I'm fine with Higgins, don't like Pollard. A couple other of our MVC regulars I can do without (Tom O'Neil has seen better days, Paul Janssen, Joe Derosa). I think "outside" officials isn't a bad idea if you can pull it off, but not just "any old refs", but some decent ones. Either way, there'd be ...

Re: Zenger out at Kansas

I'm not one to make excuses but that there were a lot of things working against that tourney jbird. 1. We were coming off the Porter Moser years. The last of 2 were a combined 24-35 and 10-16 in the conf, 10th place followed by 8th place. This was Jank's 3rd and 4th games at ISU. 2. That tourney was...
