Re: vs South Dakota

Denver's HC is Chauncey Billups brother. I just got done watching Colorado beat Arizona. Chauncey was interviewed during the game. He said his brother is the HC and UD and his coach at CO, Ricardo Patton was his asst. I think Patton was the HC at NIU after he was fired at CO.

Re: North Dakota State

I was at the NDSU game. Five minutes before tip I counted the number of people on the players benches side. Grand total of 53 people. There may have been 100 - 150 on my side.

Re: Who's been the best AD?

Let's not forget what TVA did to Coach P. State of IL ruled in Coach P's favor, which the state should have done, No retribution for TVA since the Pres and VP TVA reported to were retiring. I quit donating the day Coach P was pushed out and resumed the day TVA was fired. I was in school when Gil was...

Re: Updates to faculty layoff plan and other stuff

Under the astute leadership of Jackie Thomas downhill!! Same direction it's been going since he moved into Sherman Hall! Hopefully with all the vacancies on the BOT we'll have some trustees that will do what should have been done years ago and show Jackie the door ASAP!!

Don't get no better than that locker room celebration and it appears Coach Elliott is right in the middle. Coach Elliott and his staff has done a great job keeping this team on track.

Re: WIU vs Northern Iowa (10/27/2018)

Coach P has been doing analytics for K-State, Arkansas when "Bi Lemia" was there and the Sqawks in Iowa City. Coach P and LIsa built a new house in Iowa City a couple miles from the stadium when they retired. Only liked three Sqawks; Coach P, Dan McCarney and Bob Elliott.
