Re: New Direction

Billy is a great guy that makes a great assistant coach, but not a head coach. Time to move on! This is brutal to watch. Tough shots, not very many assists, and getting beat (outcoached) everytime after a break in the action. Teams fire winning coaches all the time. Why is it so difficult to move o...

Re: At North Dakota State

Another embarrassing effort. I predict this team won't win any road games in conference and who knows how many home games they will win. Luckily it looks like Denver is bad so they might have a chance of not finishing last.

Re: Coaching Changes - post-2018 season

I know Rutugers is a hot mess right now, but very strange to see an coach leave a Power 5 program to be an assistant coach at lower level.

Re: vs South Dakota State

Maybe it is a good thing the video is going in and out. Another embarrassing performance. As Billy likes to say, as a team that hangs its hat on defense...

Re: vs South Dakota State

Looks like SDSU has a Big 3 and not much offensively after that. Hopefully both games get good crowds, it will be a tough match-up for both teams.

Re: vs South Dakota State

So is this a real double-header (i.e. one ticket, see two games) or do they clear the building after the first one? I like having to face the supposedly best team in the league in the opener. That way, you know very early in the season where you stand and what you need to work on. Will be interesti...

The Maine head coach is leaving to take an assistant job with Minnesota, so WIU is not the only school this happens to lol

Re: vs Chicago State

Now we'll see what this team is really made of, with conference season starting.

Re: Updates to faculty layoff plan and other stuff

I see Illinois was 2nd in the nation in population loss. I don't think Illinois will be getting better anytime soon with their budget mess.
