Re: vs Denver

Re: 2021 Season (Spring-ish)

Where is the team practicing? Basketball will be in Western Hall. Rec Center or Brophy? Up here Farley (UNI HC) said last week they play their second game at YSU.

Re: 2020 Coaching Staff

Re: 2020 Season

Read today the Sun Belt will allow their schools to play four non conference games. Our AD should be on the phone with Sun Belt schools. EIU would bring back an old rivalry also.

Re: Best Leatherneck win in D-I era?

I think you're correct. Joe was one tough SOB! Him and Rick Lamb from ISU had some battles. Joe's kids turned out to be VB stars. One daughter played a NE.

Re: Basketball Recruits - 2020

This is the most excited I've been about WIU Men's Basketball since the early '80's when Jack Margenthaler was winning conference tournaments and packing Western Hall to watch Joe Dykstra, Todd Hutcheson, Jamie Lilly, Duane Banks etc..Oh suppose I better mention Brad Bainter! :lol: :lol:

Re: QC Campus VP Joe Rives has been let go

Two longtime Leathernecks that I value their friendship very highly both said Rives was not good for Western, out for himself and no one else. I'd say "Don't let the door it you on the way out." Wish he would have went when Jackie got his Golden Parachute!
