Re: NCAA bid

I loved coach mo. Actually ran into him late on a Saturday night walking up to the square. He was smoking a big ol’ cigar. It was the first time and only time I ever met him but he talked with me like we were best friends. He seemed like a genuinely good guy. Hated to see him go but completely unde...

Re: NCAA bid

The only thing I agree with is Coach Mo knew the cupboard was about to be bare, and the perfect opportunity to leave and go to Nebraska came at the right time.
Yeah, and who can blame him?! More money (almost a 60% increase), less stress. Mo is no spring chicken!

Re: NCAA bid

A few years ago when it came down to one or two points , Mollinari didn't allow CC back in the game. Wow, coach what a fantastic time to assert who is in charge. What!?! If you are talking about the Summit League championship game in 2011-12 against South Dakota State, Ceola Clark played the ENTIRE...

Re: vs Eastern Illinois

they got close with cc/tp but I think they only drew 2500-4500. I can’t remember for sure. I remember a SDST game people up in the top bleachers. The 2012-13 season was when the top bleachers were opened up. Attendance was "4,163" for SDSU and "3,973" for NDSU. That season we played EIU in Charlest...

Re: At Eastern Illinois

I would like to see us make a change to the way we handle broadcasts and I know few are going to agree with me here, but that is OK. If we all agree on everything, progress is stifled. IMHO, we need to put our best foot forward and have the radio guy(s) and or gal(s) become the audio source for the...

Re: WTF? with Directional school?

Bring "The Pit" back!

Things were raucous back in the late 90s early 00s.
When we were tailgating in The Pit, the consensus at the time (in my circles) was that it was too crowded and small. We would have loved to tailgate in Q Lot.

Very cool! I'm an old newspaper nerd, so I'll be checking this out. Will also probably help in further research of my men's basketball history.

Re: Northern State-WIU Connection

That's great to hear about Coach Hendrickson. He really did take over a no-win situation. I'll never forget two moments working with WIU Football. 1) When I came to WIU the only radio signal we had to broadcast football was on 88.3, meaning anyone outside of Macomb (or even in town) could not get th...
