Re: How is Dunkin Donuts coming along?

I know that people who have not been back to Macomb for a while are disappointed by the square. My question is always, did you head east toward the Hampton and Best Western. There is a ton of places in that area which is not a surprise for towns like the one I grew up in or Macomb. They need to fill...

Re: How is Dunkin Donuts coming along?

When we were in town for the NIU game we stayed at the Best Western! It was obvious that work on the new Star Bucks was underway. Scott, have you been over there since I was down? How does it look! ;) jc

Re: 2020 Roster Changes

Let's let Coach Elliot and staff work through this! They were not dealt exactly a superior hand. I think GV will agree that we have some of the pieces, but they need those pieces and a mix of others to get out of the woods. I really think that as WIU gets back on it's feet financially and attendance...

Re: 2020 Roster Changes

It is far from a mass exodus! This type of thing happens every year and is part of the "weeding out" process. We need immediate help to right the "good ship" WIU! ;) jc

Re: Football Attendance

712, moving Hanson Field across University into the Ravine did not have anything to do with the steam tunnels. But the football locker room attached to Western Hall and the Rec center had everything to with them. ;) jc

Re: Football Attendance

There were plans to move Hanson Field just north of University Drive next to where the Hyvee/Broadcasting building and Credit Union now stand. There is a nice broad ravine in that location which would have provided the base "ground work" for such a structure. Maybe thats partially why they decided n...

Re: At Ball State

Finally played a complete game! Really close last Wednesday and the game came down to a few made and a few missed shots. Clarr really is starting to put it together. Is it true, is WIU #1 in freethrow shooting for D1 at the present time? ;) jc

Re: Football Attendance

Yes, 21-20!!!! I have three wonderful memories of the 1973 season. Opening night, not sure who we played but it was the first real date my wife and I ever had. It turned out that it was a "win win" situation, Then, I broke up with a girl from Miami of Ohio who I had been seeing before I met my wife....
