Re: College Football Week 9

Eureka won at Concordia Wisconsin 48-45.

The Red Devils are 8-0, have won 16 straight regular-season games, and need to win one of their last two games to win the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference and go to the Division III playoffs for the second season in a row.

Re: Wrong direction

This team is a game out of its first top-3 Valley finish in 17 years and you're all ... mad?

I wish their record was better, too, but I'm over the moon for .500 in the league with two weeks left considering what we've all sat through the last seven years.

Re: Bradley v UNI

Keep the elements that people associate with your product. Sure, the lazy answer is to say winning cures all, and it does. But there...

Re: Bradley v UNI

Truer words have not been spoken. Especially with ‘Swing March’ leading up to the tip... MORE BAND, LESS CANNED! I've never met Dave Vroman, but sometimes I think about what he must think about some of the decision making. "Hey Dr. V, I know you've been doing the same song before tip-off for the la...

Re: Bradley v UNI

Although the Swing March is unique and really almost on par with Charge On, Bradley! in terms of significance for the GDE. A part of me died when they scrapped Swing Match before the tip-off. As a kid, some of my favorite memories of Bradley games are 10K people standing and clapping along to that ...

Parents concerns, for whatever reason, seem to fall on deaf ears. From the outside looking in it appears that way and according to my source. This is honest question -- what are the concerns?

Re: Updates & Scores Week # 9

I regret being snarky and then having an embarrassing quote error and ensuing triple post when trying to edit.

But in all seriousness, I don't think Metamora's underclass teams would beat East Peoria's varsity team. At least not this year.

I've never understood how pro-capitalist people are against college athletes getting paid to perform and to also get as much money as possible via endorsements, advertising, etc. I think we're dealing with two different issues.

What's really maybe the most ironic thing about this whole ordeal is that the folks that run TOB should be exactly what Bradley wants in an alum: a (presumably) successful professional, (presumably) deep pockets and a deep passion to see the athletics department thrive.
