Know Your Opponent - Illinois State

As if meeting people were not easy enough the USA Today reported today that the University of Kansas has done a study that identified five different types of flirting.

1.) Physical
2.) Traditional
3.) Polite
4.) Sincere
5.) Playful

My best guess is that none of those styles will be in play on Saturday when EIU and Illinois State meet in the 99th edition of the Prairie State Rivalry. The two teams respect each other, but any kind words probably drop off quickly after that.

Here is the week's Know Your Opponent. (P.S.) Sorry this has been a short blogging week but with many fall seasons, EIU didn't have a whole lot going on this week.

For those that do like the excitement of the hardwood, basketball season starts on Friday. The men are at home hosting South Dakota State at 7 p.m. EIU's women will be at home on Sunday hosting Missouri.

Now some quick facts to bring you up to speed on Illinois State.

1.) It is the oldest public university in the state of Illinois
2.) The town Normal actually took its name from the original name of the school - the Illinois State Normal School.
3.) Some famous alumni include actor Gary Sinise, Sean Hayes (actor - Will & Grace), singer Suzy Bogguss and golfer D.A. Weibring.
