Saluki Football note on Northern Iowa week: SIU is 3-14 lifetime at the UNI Dome. @SIU_Football last played there in 2016. SIU beat the Panthers last March at Saluki Stadium. The last time SIU won consecutive games v UNI was 2012 and 2013. @salukiradio
Plenty of @SIU_Basketball alums at today's Celebration of Life at Benton High School for former SIU Coach Rich Herrin. Nice reunion to celebrate a very impt Saluki. Kudos to head coach Bryan Mullins & asst Connor Wheeler for being there. They are good caretakers of the program.
It is a new look @SIU_Baseball team with 20 new players. 8 are pitchers. One is 2021 HM All-American LH Jordan Bloemer from Kaskaskia College. He averaged 12 strikeouts per 9 innings in 2021 en route to an 11-2 record. He got the final out of the 5th on a K v. Jeff Co tonight...
@THefferman The players are thinking about people other than themselves when they get vaccinated. I like that. As an older person who travels with them some and is around them a lot, I'm thankful. We need still more people who aren't selfish.
.@SIU_Football notes: WR Landon Lenoir #3 in career receptions and yards (#2 in sight), P Jack Colquhoun #1 career avg., 43.0, DE Anthony Knighton #2 in career sacks and TFLs, QB Nic Baker #16 career pass yds.
.@SIU_Football notes: SIU is guaranteed a 3rd consecutive winning regular season for the first time since 2003-09. And this is the first time SIU's ever swept the Dakota-schools portion of its schedule (SDSU and UND).
