Another great episode!
Thanks and much appreciated. Hopefully you can see the respect and admiration Jon and Jarrod have for each other. They still have great chemistry 30 years later.

We just recorded our 4th episode. We have a great guest that fans from the 70s and all eras will enjoy. He is charismatic and has some wonderful stories.

Remember to pass along any requests and we will try and make it happen

I highly encourage you to watch this episode in YouTube. Randy is awesome and there are some great pictures in the video.

Best episode yet! Great work, guys!

I appreciate these Redbird Hoops history lessons. I wasn't very familiar with Randy and this provides awesome insight to his time as a Redbird and his life after basketball. Awesome stuff.

We just posted our 5th podcast. Our special guest is former assistant coach and broadcaster, Bob Morris. Please tune in to see how Bob got his nickname "Bullet", how he received special "help" during broadcasts and how to improvise on travel arrangements when the flight gets cancelled. We welcome three Redbird Proud and have a draft of former Redbird players. I'll setup a poll in a different thread so you can pick the team that was drafted the best.

You can follow us on twitter @birdfans4ever or subscribe to us on you tube. Any feedback is welcomed.

Sneak previews:

We should have a player from the Porter era next.

We will be posting twice a month in June through September. We will move to a more frequent cadence again once the season starts.

We just got confirmation from a player from the Jank/Muller era. We are working on bringing in some folks associated with the program besides players. Hope to have them on in upcoming months. Once again, let us know if you have any suggestions requests and we will see what we can do

What about Quinn for keeping this place going? Maybe try to get someone on the Red Alert board. Bridge the gap from the past to current? Just a couple ideas that don’t really need their own shows but could be more of a couple smaller hits.

Back when the NBA had far fewer teams, there were 8 rounds in the draft. I think Randy Henry was a 6th round pick.

Nope. 8th round to Detroit.

Whitlow, Billy, Bubbles, , Wilkins, and Cyrus Mann were also drafted off the '74-'75 roster.

Another good episode this week with Ronnie Carlwell. His time as a Redbird coincides with the teams I loved as a kid. Dilly and Ronnie were a force you don't see much anymore. Those were fun teams, despite limited success.

This week's guest is Ronnie Carlwell. Listen Ronnie talk about the New Year's Eve win over Creighton, trip to New York and ground zero, his injury freshman year , and the great relationship he had with his teammates.

JJ is awesome. I had a couple classes with him in school and we did some group projects together in the athletic study center.

Man, It slipped my mind that he was the player to join Coach on stage during the Redbird7 press conference. Easily one of the most emotional rooms I've ever been in.

Hey we just posted our latest podcast and it is with Matt Chastain. He will talk about how he went from Le Roy to Loyola to ISU, his injuries and their impact, his hair, and of course some selected games while at ISU. We hope you enjoy it and as always your feedback, likes and retweets are greats appreciated.

We added a poll to go along with this week's episode

Had to go with PLee as I gave style points for the red dye. Matt and Twills a close second. Vandegarde was my era and as great as his mullet was, it was standard issue for the time.

The next game you guys need to figure out how to upload onto the YouTube channel is the 2016-17 game at Redbird arena against Wichita state. I was a student at the time and think that was probably my favorite ISU game of all time. Redbird arena was absolutely rocking that night.

We were at that game and you are 100% correct. It was a great atmosphere. I loved the alley oop to MiKyle near the end of the game. RBA erupted!!

We are slowly getting more and more games. We will see if we can get thst one.

We just recorded Podcast #10 and should have that posted early next week
