Re: Davis & Proctor out for season

This is unfortunate news. I look forward to the day in about 20 years when schools do the right thing and make a move back to natural grass/dirt to decrease these types of injuries.

Re: UCF @ Birds on 17th - Pre-Game Thoughts

I’m an era where half court offenses more closely resemble fast breaks, Muller might finally ha e the team and the depth to make some noise. I really like there look of the team, how hard they play defense, and how legitimately deep they are. This could be a very successful year.

It wasn’t. He pulled his shoulder down to the side. He did not reach inside and grab the indie of the pads and pull him backwards.

What a highly-entertaining finish, though.

8-3 anyone?

Re: Playoff chances

Say what you want about UMASS. But they are still FBS. Those wins mean more to the committee. That's always been the case. It's like 1.5 wins really. Sometimes 2.0 wins if its a more known team. Also don't overlook the fact that SIU scheduled 2 FBS games this season. A good follow for FCS playoffs ...

Re: Playoff chances

I looked at Accuweather and the forecast for next Saturday is a high of 42 degrees and a low of 33. Partly sunny but dry. That is pretty good football weather for mid-October in central Illinois. Also very good weather for the players. I would love to be there myself but that is a little too far. E...

UNI vs SDSU will answer a lot of questions this week. We currently sit #8 in the coaches poll: https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/football/fcs/fcs-coaches-poll I said SDSU@UNI earlier, but it's the other way around. Jacks cannot afford to lose two in a row at home. UNI is going to attack them the same w...

Re: Noon start times = below average performance

Perhaps the selection committee could take into account that we would've beat NDSU and UNI, had we played them a little later in the afternoon??? :think:

Re: South Dakota St.

Didn't get to see the game live today and am about to start it soon and finish tomorrow. Great win. No way in heck did I see that coming. Offensively, it looks like we still didn't do much (based on looking at the numbers), but we got the W and are that much closer to the playoffs. Let's hope UNI be...

Re: Playoff chances

8-4 and we are in. 7-5, I don’t think so. It depends on the last 2 loses. Do we compete and come up just short or do we yet again pass for 130 yards and lose by 2 or more scores?

Re: South Dakota St.

I don’t know if I’ve ever been so skeptical of a 6-3 Redbird team as I am of this one. There is nothing happening offensively that gives me any confidence in us going up there and competing, let alone winning. The Jacks are playing for a top 3 seed as they don’t want to have to meet NDSU until the s...

Re: St Louis Finalizes Plans for Soccer Stadium

New Orleans and Yulman make way too much sense to be considered. They hardly ever hold big sporting events in New Orleans. The city is so spread out. There may only be a couple hundred bars, restaurants and hotels within walking distance of Tulane. Not to mention the street car stops at the entranc...

I see some calling for a new OC but let's be honest. This is Spack's style of football. Tough D and run the ball. If you have an interception on the rare occasions you throw you go into a shell and run into an 8 man line over and over. I posted in the preseason that this staff just can't seem to re...

Re: Will the Valley get 4 teams in? How about 5?

Agree, 4th, but I'm still holding out hope for a strong 3-1 finish (perhaps a tough, close loss at SDSU), and somehow landing the 7 or 8 seed and hosting after a bye. It's possible. I believe Maine had 3 losses last year and landed the 7 seed.

Re: St Louis Finalizes Plans for Soccer Stadium

The game in Frisco was awesome because it was the Redbirds playing in the championship. The stadium wasn't bad, but the location and overall setting was not really intriguing. Everything was spread out and seemed to be a 20 minute cab ride away. I know we spent more on cab fare than we did on our fl...
