Re: Lance Lenoir

In case anyone missed the Lance Lenoir TD catch in the 3rd pre-season game against the Raiders, it was a thing of beauty. http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-highlights/0ap3000000835332/Cooper-Rush-throws-deep-to-Lance-Lenoir-for-a-44-yard-touchdown This video takes a look at the route run as well an...

Re: WIU at Southern Illinois (11/19/2016)

This is the internet and we can't hear words, tones, or expressions, so I type and say this calmly and with respect and appreciation for every member of the WIU football program and their families. Sadly after a 5-1 start, the wheels fell off for the Leathernecks: 3 losses in a row and a 1-4 finish ...

Re: FCS Playoffs

There are alot of teams kicking themselves today for missing out on the FCS playoffs. WIU, UNI, EIU and others. Back on October 22nd, EIU with a 5-2 record playing at home on Homecoming Day had a 21-3 lead at home against a then 1-5 Murray State team. EIU committed 6 turn overs and lost 40-38. http:...

Re: Rodney Harrison "A Football Life"

Nice to read that WIU is trying to bring Rodney Harrison back into the fold. Not sure where the football bridges were burned with Rodney Harrison, Don Beebe, Aaron Stecker, and possibly JR Niklos as well. What many WIU fans and/or WIU alumni would like to see is a ring of honor or wall of honor at H...

Re: Death of Pat Summit

It was a classy move by ESPN to recognize Pat Summitt alongside Boxing legend Muhammad Ali "The Greatest", and Hockey legend Gordie Howe who many call "The Greatest". NHL legend Wayne Gretzky called Gordie Howe The Greatest hockey player he has ever seen. ESPN recognized all 3 (Pat Summitt, Muhammad...

Re: Future Football Schedules

Hoping that The 'Necks can get a decent FCS program at home for 2017 or at least play a FBS road game to make up for Coastal Carolina backing out. After the Leathernecks gave the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers everything the then #1 ranked FCS (at least I thought Coastal Carolina was ranked #1 then) ...
