    OT: Former Players

    I think John Ridgeway may be the most under appreciated Redbird in recent years. Dude was an absolute tank and often did the work of 2 people in the trenches. I'm glad he is apparently making his way to be an every week NFL player.

    OT: Former Players

    James O is a better fit for the Bears offense, but they seem to be running very few multiple TE sets and Kmet is really starting to show what he can do. With Irv Smith down, they are one injury away from only carrying a single TE on the Vikings and as they will probably clinch the division in 2...

    at Northwestern State - 11/12/2022 - 7:00 PM - ESPN+

    Maybe this has been covered, but how did we end up in a situation where we are playing back to back games against Northwestern St? I don't think I've ever seen this... ever.

    First Game vs WIU

    Well...that's enough of that for awhile. See you boys in March.

    FIRE BROCK SPACK

    I think 1/3rd is actually conservative. We have, what? 56 scholarships? I don't think it is outside the realm of possibility that 20-25 bail. With the new transfer rules, players can leave at any time for almost any reason. Hell, even if Spack stays, you'll likely see 4-5 hit the portal...

    FIRE BROCK SPACK

    LETS SAY, for argument's sake, that you let Spack go and 1/3rd of the roster transfers out. How many seasons of 4 or less wins do you give the next guy before you are calling for HIS head? Because it will be at LEAST 2 (I argue, probably 4) before there is a winning season.

    FIRE BROCK SPACK

    A very strong point. The injuries hurt for sure. We need to recruit a pile of heavies. One of the most underrated parts of ISU's 2014 season was the OLine opening giant holes in zone blocking.

    FIRE BROCK SPACK

    What... um... do you think is going to happen to ISU if you fire Brock Spack in the middle of what will be a winning season? The first thing you are going to get is 20-25 players hitting the transfer portal immediately- most of them on the defensive side of the ball. The second thing will...

    Youngstown St.

    Oof. No more playoffs.

    Return to Horton?

    I think there will be a lot of alumni at this game. I believe they will not be as loud as they were back in the day, but I am confident it will be louder than a game at RBA, especially a non-con game. I hope it is a success so the school may make it an annual thing.

    Alternate Helmet

    I personally love the red helmets, but would prefer have an all-white outline of Reggie on there. Still, HUGE upgrade over the white helmets that have always felt out of place to me.

    NDSU

    This is about exactly how I thought this game would go. NDSU is still NDSU and will likely be in the final 4 for the national championship again. ISU isn't there, but it wasn't a blowout. It got away from us as the end, but ISU held their own for the majority of the game. ISU's arrow is...

    NDSU

    NDSU is more beatable this year than any year in the last decade. While I don't think we win, I don't think it is outside the realm of possibility like I've thought for the last 5 years or so.

    OT: Former Players

    The fact that he was traded for a 6th round pick tells me that the GM wasn't playing hardball and needs to get his 2021 first round pick touches before everyone labels him a bust and points at the front office. That said, the Jets are now 5-2 and JRob has a chance to play in the biggest market...

    Special Teams Got You Down Redbirds ... watch this

    Soooo that kid is cut, right? Like you dont have any other player who can snap 12 yards? I guarantee the regular center can.

    Redbirds picked 10th

    unfortunately, not it they are good anymore. The NCAA, by changing transfer penalties, made mid majors feeder programs to big money schools.

    Redbirds picked 10th

    This will be a learning year to A- learn what the roster can and can't do B- learn how Coach develops his team I honestly don't care if we win 8 total games this season as long as the team is better in March than they were in November. I'd like to see growth and progress in-season.

    Playoffs? PLAYOFFS?! We're talking about PLAYOFFS?!

    I'm interested to hear what you guys expect out of our football program. Do you expect North Dakota State levels of winning? Multiple national titles and such coming to Normal? That won't happen because, unlike NDST, we are not one of 3 college football programs within 700 miles. We have to...

    Playoffs? PLAYOFFS?! We're talking about PLAYOFFS?!

    I...can't tell if you are being serious or not. I think we are closer to naming the field after him than firing him.
