|Spack: Not a Rebuilding Year at Illinois State
|NORMAL, Ill. (AP)--Illinois State has lost a dozen starters from last season's playoff team, but head coach Brock Spack refuses to call 2013 a rebuilding year.
Spack told WJBC radio Monday that he never uses the term rebuilding.
He says the Redbirds will be aiming to improve from last season.
Illinois State was 9-4 last season and made it to the Football Championship Subdivision quarterfinals. The Redbirds lost that game to Eastern Washington.
Illinois State opens its season Aug. 29 at Ball State.
