Re: 11/23 @ YSU 11am

YSU started out 4-0. After a very close loss to UNI about 1.5 months ago (21-14), their season crumbled. Since then: 38-28 loss to SDSU 35-10 loss to SIU 59-14 win over WIU 56-17 loss to NDSU 56-21 loss to SoDak 24-17 loss to INSU Make no mistake; they are going to play us tough. They may have some ...

Re: Playoff chances

If we win out, we’ll be a top 8 seed for sure. I don’t really care why seed that is, as long as it’s opposite NDSU. That’s our best chance to get to Frisco again. Then, you never know what can happen. If we lose 1, we’ll have a bad/mediocre loss and likely move to hosting a home playoff game the wee...

Re: Uni at Illinois State (11/2/19)

Last year NIU had to buy over 56,000 tickets because they couldn't reach the required 15,000 per game minimum. It cost them nearly $300,000 in buy back tickets. The amount of people begging to move to FBS I do not think have a clue about the cost it would take. Right now our stadium does not hold 1...

Re: St Louis Finalizes Plans for Soccer Stadium

Southeast Missouri State vs Illinois State game in St. Louis for a non-conference game? I'd be in if we got a guarantee to do it or did a H-H with SEMO and their game was in StL. I know they have played SIU in Busch Stadium. I wouldn't be surprised for them to do more games there. I agree this coul...

Re: WR Edgar out Indef. & Grimes done for season

Anyone hear anything on Edgar coming back ??? If he’s not back in the next two weeks, is it worth looking at a redshirt year? Obviously the player has to be willing, but is Edgar coming off a long layoff for a few games worth it versus the potential for a full additional season? Coming this Saturda...

Re: 9 wins or bust

Big Sky looks strong at opt again this year and deeper than last year. They could get 4 or 5 teams, unless the cannibalize themselves at the top these last 5 games. Sac St came out of nowhere and looks completely legit as top 4. Colonial is also deep but already cannibalizing themselves ... hope th...

Re: WIU Game (10/19/2019)

The offense is by far the most disappointing aspect. We make it very easy for the opposing teams defense - one or two receiver sets out of the "I" formation is fairly simple. Even when we pass - only two or three receivers out and NOTHING underneath or in the flat. That is the question I wish someo...

Re: Hancock West side....

I sat on the Hancock West side two years ago and thought it was more than fine for a visiting side. There could be some additions for concessions and anyway to enlarge/enhance bathrooms would be nice too (if that is possible?). But in no way did I feel that it was a dump. Why pump a bunch of money ...

Re: Season Tickets

I would guess they'd be coming on Friday, Saturday, or Monday. If it's like football and they aren't being sent away to be printed this year, they should be able to run them all until they're done and get the envelopes stuffed and sent out with parking passes. My big question with season tickets: ho...

Re: IHSA football finals in 2022??

U of I will have every other Thanksgiving weekend off. It likely doesn’t matter to them if they don’t make money on the deal if it is more a recruiting expense for them. I say we go to hold it but let’s not lose our shirts on it like the deal NIU gave them before. I believe the NIU admins who made t...

Rico, Goredbirds did post a design for the indoor practice facility but it didn't draw much of a response. I think we will eventually get something that is scaled back from what we originally saw. I believe the drawing was slapping our logo on a YSU design. Just to put a picture with a concept. We’...

So this year, we’ve beaten the teams we were supposed to beat and lost to the teams we were supposed to lose to? I think people could have easily put us as 3-2 through 5 games. I have been disappointed in our losses that we didn’t show up better. If we play like we did in the 2nd half against NAU, w...

Re: Will KUBB be penalized?

If they were serious, Self would get a multi-year show-cause and there would be a multi-year postseason ban and scholarship reductions. That won’t happen though. Likely a small fine, Self misses a few exhibitions or buy games, and maybe one reduced scholarship or recruiting dates.

Re: WR Edgar out Indef. & Grimes done for season

I predict we see a lot more formations with JR and Proctor on the field. Perhaps Proctor, Kevin Brown (if healthy) or one of these other RBs in the slot.
