Just saw on the Sycamore site that the March 17th game has been moved up to Tuesday, March 10th (tomorrow!) due to a scheduling conflict. Petricka has been announced as the starting pitcher for ISU. Nice that they could pick this game up during spring break week, instead of having the Memphis...
After having the Eastern Kentucky Tournament canceled due to poor weather, the softball team travels to Charleston, IL on Wednesday to take on the Panthers at 5pm ET. Eastern is off to an 8-4 start while ISU is still 3-2. Sycamores have played 10 less games than the leaders in games played in...
Wow! Great win for the women today over preseason favorite Illinois State. Final score was 72-65!
ISU now 3-0 in MVC play and tied with Bradley for 1st place.
Luna led ISU with 25 points, Jarrett with 16, and Mattox with 12, Thomas with 11 rebounds.
This is a great win in front of a large...
folks, I don't know how many of you are watching this game, but what a game, sold out Redbird arena, LOUD crowd and Illinois State is winning 23-14 in the 1st. I can only hope that we see this type of atmosphere at INDIANA State someday.
I know the Colts are on too, but this game is WORTH...
noticed last night that ISU red only beat EIU by 2 points in Normal. I think Ill. State is a bit overrated in the MVC and will be pushed to win the league title, there really is no clear cut favorite if you ask me (based on non conference results to date)
Northern Illinois lost to Maine Friday (Maine, sorry, not a BB powerhouse if you ask me), then barely beat a deplorable Western Illinois team today.
I will be really disappointed if ISU loses this game on Tuesday night. NIU is pretty young too, so it'll be two young teams playing, but I feel...
I was hoping someone else would start this topic, but it seems interest in ISU FB is waining given the fact that men's and women's BB practice starts this weekend. This is ISU's 2nd of 3 straight homecoming games.
Regardless, the 2 questions I ponder are:
1. Will the Donaldson kid from WIU...
sadly this game has history written all over it, as in this could be the worst blowout in Gateway history. Right now it's at 62 points which was set last season. This could be really ugly. And it's on TV to boot.
I expect ISU won't score and SIU could put up anywhere from 80-100 points or...
ok, time to move on to Saturday's game vs. Illinois State
ISU game notes are up...
"Drive killer" still #1 on the QB depth chart, hopefully "the future" will see some playing time this week too.
Illinois State has a prediction thread going on their message board, they think this...
found a pre-game article on Scout.com. The NIU fans think NIU will score at will on Saturday.
I would guess Jerry Kill will pull the starters in the 3rd quarter if it's too out of hand.
might as well get a game thread going since EIU has released their pregame info. Nothing from ISU yet though. EIU is still ranked in the top 20 in both I-AA polls.
Hopefully the 16 days off have helped ISU
Hey look, pitching! After struggling on the mound often this spring, Indiana State began its final Missouri Valley Conference baseball series of the season by sweeping a doubleheader from visiting Illinois State by scores of 4-0 and 11-1.
this dreadful baseball season finally comes to an end this weekend as ISU hosts Illinois State. Both teams are tied for next to last in the MVC and can not qualify for the MVC post season. Look for lots of runs to be scored in this series I'd guess.
The Indiana State women?s basketball program continued to add size on the perimeter with the addition of 6-foot guard and ?big-time scorer? Chelsea Buher as a transfer from the University of Illinois.
