Re: WIU at Illinois (9/8/2018)

Maybe we can start an instate Rivalry game Eastern Illinois every year. Maybe, although I'm not sure I want to be locked into playing the same team every year outside of conference teams. Illinois State already does it with EIU and I've heard that it's sometimes made scheduling tricky for OOC games...

Re: WIU at Illinois (9/8/2018)

I would like to see us schedule a Power 5 and 2 easy Ws in our Non Con every year. Get the $$ and recruiting benefit from playing the P5. But playing Montana, Montana State and schools like those really have no benefit to a MVFC team. We don't need them to raise our SOS with the Conf teams we face....

WIU Bye Week (2018)

So, we're 1-2...not quite what I'd hoped, but we knew it was going to be a tough non-conference schedule. Mistakes have been made, but the team has also shown that they aren't going to just roll over and quit if they're down...say, by 10 points with less than 6 minutes left in the game ;) Some good ...

Re: WIU vs Montana (9/15/2018)

Should we factor in the suite and press box areas into our answer? Yeah, they may not be any better than us in terms of the field or seating, but they do have a decent press box: http://customer.djc.com/stories/images/20100922/ewu_turf_big.jpg I'm kinda worried about the structural integrity of our...

Re: WIU vs Montana (9/15/2018)

I was talking with a couple from Montana at the University Union Food Court before the game. The woman said: "We just love the old-time look of your football stadium". The man added: "It's certainly unique". :) When a couple says that the "stadium has an old time feel, and is certainly unique". Tha...

Re: Women's Basketball - 2020

Mallory McDermott, 5'8" SG from Prairie HS in Cedar Rapids, IA https://twitter.com/malmcd10/status/1041397943373373440 I believe she is a 2020 grad so we will have to wait a couple of years. When you get an early commitment from kids, you know you are running a good program. Yup, she kicks off the ...

Re: WIU vs Montana (9/15/2018)

IIRC, the original "plan" the owners had was to make it over into apartments. That didn't fly. Maybe they're getting the income they'd planned for so are letting things go, who knows? I think it actually was apartments for a few years, but there ended up being a lot of illegal activities that were ...

Re: WIU vs Montana (9/15/2018)

The ironic thing is back in the 70s, the Macomb Inn was the Holiday Inn and by far the best place to stay in town. Visiting teams would always stay there. Lounge always had some good live entertainment going on the weekends. I agree, would love to see someone put some dollars into it, probably raze...
