ISU football fans can rest easy, Coach Brock Spack told Scott and Colleen on the morning show that he is not going to Purdue.
Spack, a former Purdue assistant coach, was rumored to be a candidate for the head coaching job at Purdue after the firing of the head coach. But his response when asked by Scott if he was going to Purdue was, “I’m not.”
Spack says he has been there, done that and that him and his wife are happy here in Bloomington-Normal. He says he didn’t have to address the Purdue rumors with players and the team is focused on the tough upcoming playoff game against Appalachian State.
The Redbirds won’t just be facing a tough team on the field, they will also be hearing from the 30,000 fans that regularly attend the Mountaineers' games. They have the best attendance in the FCS and dominate the division.
Spack says the team had a mini break for Thanksgiving and got down to business on Saturday. There was an extra focus on working with the young players. Spack says it was comparable to another spring practice for the team.
“They’re a very athletic team. . . I equate them to Georgia,” said Spack when asked about the style of play from Appalachian State.
You can hear the Redbirds take on Appalachian State on WJBC 1230 AM on Saturday. Kickoff is at 1.
