Someone thinks MSU football is Top 25

Pleasantly surprised to see the Racers get a vote this week in this poll:

Re: The line Saturday is Tenn. State -3.5 but look at this

Besides JSU, TSU is the toughest opponent on the schedule. Looking at the Sagarin ratings, Murray has a (long) shot at going 7-1 in the conference this year - if they continue to overachieve the numbers/odds and play as well as they have (must improve the defense). The OVC is full of dogs sans JSU t...

Re: Family Day!

Does anyone know why they keep saying "help us break the home attendance record of 12,000 fans" - we've had many crowds bigger than that in the 1990s.

Denver Johnson

Was wondering where our old coach was - looked him up and saw he stepped down early last week as the head coach of Missouri Southern State University. He started the season 0-3 by a combined score of 159-13... yikes. He only won 3 games out of 36 there over four seasons. He also struggled some at Il...

UT Martin

UT-Martin, once the proverbial doormat of OVC football, is an 11-point favorite Saturday. Hopefully all the pieces will come into place and Murray pulls off the win. The season is still salvageable!

So...

I didn't see it, but based on Twitter, did ESPN actually air something about the fake MSU mascot at the UK game? As I tweeted to MSU Sports - I sure hope that 450K paycheck was worth it.

Re: Rationale for Racer's like Canaan, Payne and Morant being labeled as "slipping under the radar."

Evaluating talent can be hard to do. It goes across the entire professional spectrum. I've hired people before that shined in interviews and had a nice resume to back them up, only later to find they weren't right for the job. I think basketball recruiting is the same. Without naming names, we've ha...

Kentucky 41-pt Favorite

I hate playing in-state FBS schools or those in our region. To me playing Kentucky, Louisville or Illinois puts a black eye on Murray State in general. I hear it's for "recruiting" but to me it creates a negative connotation for the entire university when our crappy football program gets whipped by ...

Re: Football Preview: Murray State at Central Arkansas

After the watching the SIU atrocity, I would say a similar score is in store if we limit turnovers. If we play like we did vs. SIU, it'll be 70-0.

Re: Looks like we are getting a new president

In 1996 I vividly remember tuition was $1,000 per semester. I was local so I didn't need a room or a meal plan. No doubt the reduced funding of higher education has impacted enrollment. But it's not just here, it's a trend across the country in many states. Earlier this year I looked up why Kentucky...

Re: Looks like we are getting a new president

In today's Murray Ledger, the preliminary fall enrollment numbers are at 9,441, down 6% from last year and around 16% from 2014. This is a really bad situation for the university. Doesn't really matter now but I'd have to downgrade my assessment of Davies to a D. I think these are the toughest times...

Re: Murray State - SIU Prediction

Hope you're right. SIU was picked 8th out of 10 teams in the MVC. Sagarin has the Racers a 12-point underdog.

From what I understand, ESPN+does not broadcast on a regular laptop or PC. It's only for Apple or Android based platforms, but it's also available on Chromecast and Amazon's Fire stick. I bought a Chromecast today. They're only $30. I don't mind paying $5/month to watch the games. One admission tic...

Re: Flashback: Robert Davies

When Mid-Continent closed MSU hit 11,200 students, I think that was fall of 2014.
