Cowboys/ISU/ Laurent Robinson

Great for this guy getting another chance. Had lost track of him, but remember him from Illinos State. Had a great rookie season for a then bad Atlanta Falcon team. Injuries kept him from playing, but now injury to Austin has given him that opportunity.

Re: Ron Zook

The running game has went in the tank and teams figured out that if you cover AJ, there's no one else that can catch the ball. Everyone thought the defense might be a challenge, but this offense and special teams are plain horrible. Zook is hesitant to go with O'Toole. The switch needs to be made du...

Re: Its official NW

Good call and I agree with the move. I think that he could have contributed and now we have to depend on Sticks. But somehow this coaching staff WILL figure it all out.

Re: Morton's Brett Bisping commits to Siena

Wish he would have waited to commit in the spring. Could have had better offers. I agree on free throws. Can we make Wells the DH for free throws?!

Re: Bradley Legend Bob Carney Passes

Growing up, I used to sit at the kitchen table and listen to Bradley and Illini games with my brother. Always kept score. And at half, we would shoot baskets through a oatmeal box hung on a nail, trying to imitate this guys. My very favorite players were Bob Carney and Billy Ridley. This really brou...

Re: Under The Bus

All of this shouldn't surprise anyone. As with Mo, JL didn't give you a chance to redeem yourself. It was to the bench. Ever notice that the player would always have one eye on the coach. Many times, they didn't see the floor the rest of the game. A real breath of fresh air this year, for the fans a...

Re: 2011-2012 MLB baseball offseason thread

The same Willie Bloomquist that the Cubs released in spring training. Not even good enough to make the squad as a utility player. :roll: In addition, we had JJ Putz , but Hendry thought he had a dead arm and wouldn't sign him. How many saves later?

Re: 2011-12 Fighting Illini

Yeah, it was painful to watch. I kept thinking how BU always struggled when he was out of the lineup. But I'm not sure that SM would now be able to play the up tempo style that Geno has installed at Bradley. If he is able to spell Abrams for short periods, then I'd say that is about as much as you c...

Re: Thoughts From Last Nights Game

My take on last nights game. Unless they are going to give up on this season, you cannot redshirt Wells. Prosser and Brown will be targeted from the start. Sticks is still Sticks and will contribute very little. We will continue to get hammered on the boards. At least Wells can make free throws, if ...

2011-12 Fighting Illini

I was at the Quincy exhibition last night. I know it is early, but here are some things that I saw. Of all of the new players, Mike Shaw and Tracy Abrams looked the most promising. It appears that Weber is grooming Abrams for the point guard position. Sam M. played a lot the first half because Abram...

Re: Penn State AD, former coach and another admin charged

Joe Pa won't survive it up this. They don't need an excuse anymore. I really doubt that he is in tune of all of the goings on with the program. Much of it was probably kept from him. This makes Ohio State and Jim Tressel look like a minor violation!

Re: Santo and Boyer among canditates on Vets HOF Ballot

I have really never understood why Santo didn't get in, before he passed away. Perhaps there were too many other great third basemen in his time, but a look at statistics and comparisons would tell you that he deserved to have been there. There must be too many Joe Morgan's out there that feel Santo...

Re: Cards want....Ryno?

Still think that Jose Oquendo will be the next Cardinal manager. Interviewing Ryno is part of the process.Right or wrong, look for the Cubs to get a guy who has time in the Red Sox organization, perhaps Dale Svean now with the Brewers. He was an interm manager at Milwaukee and a coach for the Red Sox.

Re: Cubs exercise option on Ramirez

Things have changed in MLB. You might see long term contracts paid out to worthy pitchers, but owners are finally getting smarter and are willing to pay Ramy age players not on past performance, but based future performance. Less money, perhaps 2-3 year contract. The Cubs have some young players tha...

Re: Bears to franchise Forte?

This is a classic case of Forte taking bad advice from his agent. If in fact he turned down a contract with big money, then that is a shame. They knew that the franchise option was always there for the Bears to exercise. Too late for Forte to holdout now. He had the option early on. Although I think...

Re: Guess who is resting a "troublesome" ankle

Sammy will get his 15-17 minutes a game, probably off the bench. The guy who has really been impressing is Tracey Abrams. Is a stud and has really picked up the point guard position. He will be the starting point guard sooner, if not later.

Oddsmakers are at 7-4 that Pujols will sign with the Cubs, now that LaRussa has retired. Those odds are really hard to believe. Better than 2-1, but don't think it will ever happen. Next manager for Cardinal,Jose Oquendo?
