Re: Redbird Arena floor

Sounds like they're filling in the moat. Hopefully they do the right thing and bring the students closer to the floor as well and don't make the seats overly comfortable.....that's a recipe for fans sitting on their keisters the whole game. I really hope they give the students better seats. It migh...

Re: Redbird Arena floor

Why couldn't they have a made up video to show how it all will look? But either way it's going to be nice. I almost expected the letter to mention increased prices, but not yet I guess. I'm hoping there are some photos when they put out the new seating maps. I have a feeling donations will go up an...

Re: vs UNI 1/8/19, 7 pm, NBC Chicago

What's their percentage season long on those 3s? We struggle to fight though the ball screens anyway, so might as well sit underneath and clog the middle. I'd let UNI fire from 3 all day. They are around 260th in 3pt fg percentage. They shoot a ton and miss a ton. However, they have no decent post ...

Re: vs UNI 1/8/19, 7 pm, NBC Chicago

My first thought is how sad it has to be to be a UNI fan. That team is a shell of their former teams. Granted as bad as the MVC has become they still can compete. For 6 and a half years I am puzzled by Dan Muller offense. Throw it to Fayne and Yarbourgh on the block every time. Fayne was running aro...

Re: Fire Larry Lyons

The number is not made up, Chiredbird. Outside of about half of the P5 schools, every school in the country depends on student fees and other U subsidies for their athletics programs to survive. Reading everyone's comments, about fundraising. About attendance, you certainly realize that virtually e...

Re: ISU vs Evansville, 1/5/19

Evansville entered the game 30th in the country at free feels attempts\game at 14. They shot 7 yesterday so our defense played without fouling better than our average so far this year. They average more ppg than we do (4th), as does valpo (3rd), we are 9th in points allowed. Both average 73 ppg, th...

Re: MVC Injuries

That comment is pretty dumb considering Muller did recruit him out of high school and as a grad transfer.... That’s what I was thinking but since the old site data was lost, I didn’t want to trust my memory. We probably would have had a better chance if we didn’t let Bornder run the coaching search...

Re: ISU vs Evansville, 1/5/19

Question for anyone - we've played better D against Valpo and Evansville. I'm sure everyone would agree these 2 schools are NOT of the caliber of 3-4 non conference teams who slapped us around pretty good. R we really better or is it simply the Valley competition. Yes, clearly we R keeping our man ...

Re: Fire Larry Lyons

Very nice to hear about LL showing up for the visitation. I think we have all covered the failures of the basketball and football programs lately so I won't touch those. Rico has pointed out that very little true fundraising has been done compared to what some of our peer institutions have been abl...

Redbirds Rising includes athletics. They are trying to raise $34 million.

Any idea how much they have raised or what it is going to be used for?

Re: Fire Larry Lyons

Kudos to both sides of the argument! You’ve both done a great job of convincing yourselves you’re right and supporting your fellow believers. I think the middle ground would include something like the following: 1) Establish long-term plan for growing athletics (to include functions, personnel, fun...

Re: Fire Larry Lyons

Tomorrow look around the arena and tell me what is going to be ISU's athletic donor base moving forward. There is a huge gap between the donors of old and the next generation. I see this as a big problem that is only going to get worse without building success on many different levels (basketball a...

:clap: The $500 fans are likely $500 fans because that is what they can afford. Those $500 fans become multiple thousand dollar fans over years and years. And they do get treated that way like you say. Worse yet, become known as a guy who runs a message board where other fans can voice their opinio...

No personal attacks. I've removed posts. Next is removing users. Knock it off. Then start doing it. The board has become a disgrace to ISU fans. The majority of this thread is fine because it argues the merit of LL and what he has or hasn't done in his job. That is fair game and can be discussed. Y...

Lyons putting his family on the pay roll, you cant defend that. If Matt was the best candidate for the job, I would have been fine with it. However, when you don't open the position up, call it an "emergency hire", and never interview anyone else, it looks bad. Plus, on top of that the fact Matt wa...
