Re: 2020 Roster Changes

I know one of the rs freshman O-Lineman is transferring, Cade Kelly one of the Oklahoma kids. I appeciate the coaches trying to expand their recruiting areas but this is one of the downfalls, you recruit kids from far away, then most of them don't end of staying. It doesn't surprise me that their i...

Re: 2019 Week 14 - Around the MVFC (and other games of interest)

The crowds for those games played on the Saturday after Thanksgiving are usually small because a lot of people are still out of town. Crowds should be larger for the Dec 7 games. I assume that is why the attendance figures are so low, but still some what surprising esp, the UNI game. By the way 712...

Re: At UMKC

Hitting our FTs at a very good clip this year. Now if we could only find a a way to get to the line more often. I did not see the game, only boxscore to look at. Claar got few minutes to go along with his 4 fouls. Injured? This has been a problem forever. Our bigs now and before just dont put press...

Re: At UMKC

Anybody else watch this game? I thought WIU got screwed.Kobe got called for a ticky tack foul, that put UMKC at the line for the game-winning free throws.They never showed a replay but watching it live didn't look like a foul. Especially since a couple possessions before that, looked like WIU got ha...

Re: At Ball State

Really impressed with the victory last night, not sure how good Ball St is, but still any victory on the road is a good win. They tried to give it away like they usually do when they have a big lead, but was able to hang on. I'm thinking Claar might be the key to the team this year. Hopefully this g...

Re: 2019 Week 13 - Western Illinois at Northern Iowa

Granted I didn't really watch many games down the stretch, so maybe I'm being a homer and looking at things thru my rose colored glasses, but it did seem like Sampson did play better down the stretch.

Something has to change. Coach? Culture? Recruiting strategy? Development program? I could go on but I wont.
Turnovers and Penalties are 2 simple things imo, that need to change.

Re: 2019 Week 13 - Western Illinois at Northern Iowa

Not sure when the team went to UNI, bit hopefully if anything some of the coaches went early...anyway the Iowa State High School Football championships were Thursday and Friday in the UNI Dome, would be a good chance to see some possible recruits.

Re: Football Attendance

Attendance at our football games is a pathetic embarrassment and nothing less. I began attendance of football games at Hanson Field in September of 1969. Overall, attendance at football games was good to excellent through at least 2010. So, what has happened? A perfect storm of events? Perhaps! The...
