Normal West opens 2014 season with a win over Belleville West

Friday night, August 29th, The Normal West Wildcats opened their 2014 season against a new opponent - the Belleville West Maroons.  After storming the football field through a tunnel of band members and cheerleaders (resulting in one media casualty from a local television station) the Wildcats began their attack on the Maroons.  One down, 8 more to go for the Wildcats!

Illinois State Redbird Red-White Scrimmage

The 2014-15 school calendar sports season in Bloomington - Normal started off on a day that seemed cooler than it was and with a mist that so reminds us that fall isn't far off.  The cool temps were welcome on top the turf of Hancock Stadium and the mist probably kept a few away, but the band, team, fans, cheerleaders, dancers and media did get a feel for all of the elements that return every year.  The Band playing the alma mater, the lights of the one year old renovation, the droning voice on the public address system...  but wait, something is new... at the north end of the field, a new video board only slightly uglied by the renovation of the nearby water tower in the background.

Four quarterbacks are competing for the starting spot this season, including last seasons starter, Blake Winkler.  Lots of new names and faces also on hand as the freshman recruiting class comes in.  Marshaun Coprich scored the first TD.  One thing missing - the voice of the Big Red Marching Machine, Dave Colee.

ISU's first home game is the first Saturday of September.
