Re: WIU hires Mac Irvin Fire's Nick Irvin

The closest example in terms of local recruiting is mid-major Northern Illinois in the mid-1980s, when West Aurora’s Kenny Battle led a parade of west suburban stars to DeKalb. That famed class included DeKalb all-stater Deron White, Class A all-stater Jim Edmondson, East Aurora’s Rodney Davis and ...

Re: Valley schedules for 2020-21

Looks like it will be a 1-for-1 meaning Missouri State will play a return game in Columbia in a future season. That's not all though. Mizzou is reportedly gonna play at Wichita State this season in a similar type set-up to the Missouri State game: https://www.columbiatribune.com/sports/20200504/mar...
