Re: Football Recruits - 2019

Part of NDSU's success is having a good number of decent linemen that they can rotate in and out. Helps reduce injury, keeps players fresh throughout the game. If you look at, for example, their D-linemen stats, in terms of tackles and things, they're way down the list...but that's because they don...

Re: Football Recruits - 2019

Offensive and defensive lineman are the "butter and bread" of a football team. I don't think you can ever recruit toooooo many! ;) jc Part of NDSU's success is having a good number of decent linemen that they can rotate in and out.

Re: Search for a new DC

Looks like WIU will be searching for a new DC yet again as coach Stockton has acccepted a position at Ball state. I would look for Coach Melvin to take on this role. He’s more than qualified to run our defense and keep our scheme in place. Our defenses have been so much better since we’ve switched ...

Re: WIU vs Indiana State (11/17/2018) - Senior Day

Did you guys get any snow. depending on where you are we got a couple/few inches. It could be an uncomfortable game to watch....extra uncomfortable for the fans of 1 team. which one we wont know until after. Only a tiny bit this morning, gone by lunchtime. Weather for Saturday is currently listed a...

Re: WIU vs Indiana State (11/17/2018) - Senior Day

I was actually expecting Zeke to come up big last year, but Jaelon worked his butt off and really made his presence known. So, yeah, I was expecting more from him this year as well. Don't know what's going on with him, but he hasn't developed like I thought he would. He had a good sophomore year bu...

Re: WIU vs Indiana State (11/17/2018) - Senior Day

I say their Cinderella season comes to an end Saturday against the Leathernecks! I truly believe our boys won’t have a let down 2 weeks in a row. If you look at their schedule they only have one big win and that was on the road against Youngstown State (and YSU was having major issues then in the lo...

Re: WIU at South Dakota (11/10/2018)

More importantly, has anyone watched Indiana State as of yet? I rewatched portions of the ISUb-ISUr game this weekend. The Sycamores run a read-option heavy offense. The QB and their RB are both lightening quick. Either the Redbirds had injuries, packed it in for the season or the Sycamores are rea...

Re: WIU at South Dakota (11/10/2018)

Maybe just maybe if we beat Indiana State the playoff committee will see our record/schedule worthy of a playoff spot. Rumors are floating “Win and we’re in”. The committee owes us for that first round draw they gave us last year! Don’t be surprised if Indiana State makes the field if they beat us b...

Re: WIU at South Dakota (11/10/2018)

We Shit the bed today against a bad South Dakota football team. Our play calling was horrendous, tackling sucked and too many dropped passes when we were wide open! We didn’t play like a team that had a chance to make the playoffs! Very disappointed in our Leathernecks today. Sure didn’t expect this!

Re: WIU vs Youngstown State (9/29/2018)...Homecoming

I figured I'd give it a try section by section today if I have time. We can compare numbers to see where we're at. Section A looks like ~82 people though. I see what you mean about going crazy trying to count, although just from estimating what I'm seeing so far...it's pretty sparse. No offense guy...
