ISU Men's basketball drops to Utah State by 5

One could point to any number of different things that could have changed the outcome of this 60-55 game favoring the visiting Utah State Aggies.  Illinois State Redbirds hosted them for the first home non-conference game of the season on Sunday November 16th.

2014 1st Round IHSA Football weekend

The Bloomington - Normal / McLean County area teams scored 7 to the first round. Of those 7 games, 5 were home games, one on Friday night, the rest spread throughout the day on Saturday. With so much going on, Chimper was only able to make it to 2 of the games.

 On Friday night, the Spartans of Springfield Southeast braved the cold of the north and travelled to Normal to pick on the Wildcats of Normal West. It worked out to the Wildcats advantage. The passing game of the Spartans was ineffective as cold hands and a cold pigskin made it an uncatchable object for them. The Wildcats had their problems too, but the claws managed to grab it a few more times keeping it an effective option for them. The rest of the game was fought on the ground. Some, including Chimper, actually saw some snowflakes floating in the air as the game began.

 On Saturday, the Redskins of Morris took to the turf in Hancock Stadium to ruin the Pioneers season. The Redskins scored quickly. The Pioneers crossed the goal line early in the game and would have evened the score but the ball was called back for an offensive penalty. Be sure to look for more coverage in the Normalite Newspapers and in Best Look Magazine.
