Re: Why not St. Louis as the location of the FCS National Championship game??

Two questions - does Frisco have a perpetual lock, and if not, why not St. Louis? I've read an article that says NCAA doesn't want to lock into any one site for its championships except for Omaha for DI baseball. They recently ended 25 years in Salem VA for DIII football, and also relocated DII foot...

Re: NDSU game 10/20

Hard to know which Redbirds will get off the bus (air bus??) - the dudes who humbled CSU Rams, or the ones who got schooled in Springfield MO. Bison a little nicked up at RB maybe, but you know, if JRob wasn't playing and we had to line up with Markel, we wouldn't feel like there was gonna be that m...

Re: Looking Farther Ahead - Jackrabbits

I think there's a story behind it, but I'm pretty sure the short version is it's their Homecoming.

Looking Farther Ahead - Jackrabbits

By no means looking past the Bison, but read this article in the Sioux Falls paper and it has some good stuff about two future opponents, Jackrabbits and Penguins: https://www.argusleader.com/story/sports/college/south-dakota-state-university/2018/10/14/south-dakota-state-notebook-how-jacks-fixed-th...

Re: Where o where have the season ticket holders gone, o where o where can they be??

I'll use this thread to explain myself. Unfortunately, I missed Homecoming this weekend, one of only a few I've missed since Larry Bitcon was our head coach. My old roommate, Larry the Polish Prince, used my tickets, so there were fannies in our seats. When I saw the final, I wished I'd been able to...

Re: Redbird Arena/Hancock Stadium bag policy

We carried some stuff in last Saturday in a clear bag we got apples in, with a draw string at the top (well, also had a logo on it from the orchard). But all was good.

I was amazed at how many people had clear purses and backpacks, guess people (and merchandisers) are used to it.

Re: Rumor: Cornbelters to move to collegiate league

I would say the Madison Mallards target a broad audience, all ages, but there is much drinking promoted in the stadium. Large sections where you get a wrist band and drink and eat - $30-40 depending on the night all you can eat and drink. Really. Some "high-top" type seating. Lots of stuff for the k...

Re: 2019 - Deang Deang, 6'4, SG, Madison, WI

I had kind of forgotten about this kid, saw this and then ran across a newspaper clipping from April 2015 naming him first team all area (and listed him as a class of 2015 senior, not sure where that was coming from). But he obviously played in 2016 in HS and was a very nice player. https://madison....

Yeah JBird, why the heck didn't we follow NIU to FBS land so we could get some $$$ from stadium naming rights? Oh, wait -- nevermind. I get your point, JBird. In a quick check it looks like only one MAC program has sold stadium naming rights. And I am not totally sure Akron's stadium name was sold....

Was in attendance yesterday, a good day for football (not necessarily for tailgating tho!). A few thoughts: At one point, probably late 3rd quarter or early 4th, Davis took a sack on third down. They came off to the sideline, and unseen by me but called to my attention by Mrs. MadBird, she says Dav...

Yeah, well, there's good news and bad news from South Dakota: The good news, South Dakota State only beat Indiana State, at home, by 3 points in OT. The bad news, InSU took SDSU to OT on the road and put up 51 points!! Geez, Louise! So, while we may be able to square up to the Jackrabbits, it looks ...

Figure this deserves it's own thread unfortunately, given the fair weather nature of our fan base. But forecast improved a lot over night ... 2pm game time now has just 20% chance of rain , and same for rest of afternoon. Note, the morning is only 30 to 50% chance of rain now.
