Re: Fans or No Fans?

If OSU trims back their football schedule, say they eliminate the non con games. Will Western still get the $ they would have been paid to take a beating? What was the $ amount $600k? Just a guess but that pay check would cover aprox. 5% of Western's entire athletic budget. Depends on the contract....

Re: WIU UNI Football at Modern Woodmen Park?

I think it is fine for high school football. Peoria's Midwest League(A) minor league team plays their home games at Dozer Park capacity 7,500. Peoria's Notre Dame high school has been scheduling one game per season at Dozer Park for a number of years now. I don't like that so much of the playing sur...

Re: Best Leatherneck win in D-I era?

Excellent break down of exactly how improbable and monumental that Wisconsin win was. I have a question Mr. Lawson. Why do you think WIU did not get an NIT invite for the 22-9 2012-13 season? Was it the two losses to SDSU or was it the lack of having a "signature" win? IMO we had no bad losses that ...

Best Leatherneck win in D-I era?

Yes Leatherneck men's basketball has seen better days. Better days are around the corner. Out of curiosity what might be considered WIU's best win or most signature win? I'll throw some chum in the water to see if I can elicit any responses. Since D-I began for Western in 1981 WIU has defeated Valpa...

Form your own opinion hearing all sides and seeing all evidence. imuno What countries didn’t quarantine? What has happened there? The goal posts are being moved DAILY. I refuse to accept an...

Re: Campus situation w/ COVID-19

Some of those video clips don't exactly paint WIU students as very caring or conscientious of others.

Re: Time to Fire Billy Wright and Rebuild the Basketball Program

Anybody have any doubt that next season's team will win more games than this past season? I'm assuming this was meant to be conversation starter. Billy should have been fired mid season. Shit got so so bad. I will take the bait. YES. If their is a F***ing season my sisters's friend's cousin can wil...
