    AD Larry Lyons retires !

    So I was doing yard work all day, not sure what the rest of yours excuses are !! Anyway, let me first say and others are free to disagree ... but I think AD Larry Lyons was a pretty good man and a good AD, just not very good one in that he had a few notable misses in his time. But I think he is...

    Transfer Portal - promising FCS QB available

    Not recommending this .. nor would I rule it out. I assume he would have to sit out next fall, but this would give us some competition at QB for 2021... he started for SHSU and was Hero FR all american. He''s a RS JR, and so already used his RS, though he did have an injury .. so wondering if...

    Tre Roberson to sign with Bears !!!

    Awesome news !!!! Thought this news/scoop for pending deal was worthy of its own thread. Many teams clearly like him a lot. Here's the link others posted on Former PLayers Thread: https://www.profootballrumors.com/2020/01/bears-to-sign-cfl-cb-tre-roberson "Roberson, who is viewed as this...

    2020 defense returning

    Too soon to talk 2020 ??? Nah !!! So our defensive starters yesterday featured just 2 SRs, 4 JRs, and 5 SOs - DL group had a JR and 2 SO starting, and backups Powell and Podkulski are both JRs .. so our top 5 DL is all SO and JR, so this group is total set for 2020 - LB group had 1 SR, 1...

    WR Edgar status ???

    very tough break for Edgar getting injured again. I can't remember if he came back into game or not. The announcers never said a word about it after the injury happened. They clearly didn't quite understand how important he is to our WR group ... he is a stud and makes everyone better simply by...

    Central Arkansas (10/7/19) playoff game

    will do more research but UCA is a lot like SEMO in this sense .. their stats reflect a 7-5 or 6-6 team, not a 9-3 team. Though I would say Southland is a step above OVC for sure. Buy UCA opponents have more 1st downs and more total yards than UCS, but UCA kept finding ways to win. They got the...

    NDSU Game (10/5/19)

    since we have a bye week, as do the Bison .. they already started their game thread, so we might as well get started. I think in general, this is a game of two teams with similar strengths ... they just have a few more titles than us :D We both like to run and play defense, and try not to...

    Kudos to MVFC player-of-week QB Davis and Kicker Fenlason

    https://goredbirds.com/news/2019/9/22/football-fenlason-davis-earn-mvfc-player-of-the-week-honors.aspx Ironically the 2 positions questioned the most during offseason. Putting aside NIU game, this was THE must win and statement game of the OOC season. We had to win this game going into MVFC...

Problem is these are thunderstrorms which means very likely there will be lightnening in the evening with a 6:30pm game time .. which means there will probably be lightening delays during...

    NAU Game (9/21/19)

    Got the 2-1 Northern Arizona Lumberjacks this week ... game time is 6:30pm CST. Spme of you may vaguely recall our loss to them in 2017 at their place. WE came out fast and aggressive on defense, and out a lot of pressure on their QB .. but our energy faded as game wore on. Our offense...
