Looks like U.K. Will have a good year

 

 Wonder how Jeff Brohm will do at Purdue and Tom Allen will do at IU

I think UK has a solid shot at 8 or 9 wins. 

 

It'll probably take Brohm a few years to get anything going at Purdue. Allen should do a solid job at IU I think.

Not a fan?

I'm an IU fan so I hate Purdue with a passion. I'm actually really excited for the season. IU opens against Ohio State on opening Thursday. Going against their new OC Kevin Wilson. That'll be interesting. And it's nice that I can finally trust the defense for once in my lifetime

I definitely plan on watching that game. Should be interesting. IU may just pull it off. An improved IU defense and early season games are always pretty wild.

I hope IU does win that one. Meyer is a great coach but I have never really cared much for him honestly. 

It's funny you say that. Dan Dakich constantly says that Urban Meyer would've been the coach at IU had they pursued him. He's a great coach but I wouldn't take anyone before Nick Saban

Purdue and Cubs fan? Holy crap

You're an IU and White Sox fan right? Seems we're opposites, you and I, lol!

 

I actually don't dislike the White Sox, but I do hate IU, and my sister graduated from there, haven't talked to her since, lol, jk.

I do dislike the Cubs lol. But I know when a team is good and that team is good. What do you think about Purdue for this upcoming season?

I'm hoping for a turnaround, but like when Epstein took over the Cubs, Brohms got some work to do! Purdue also has a new Athletic Director, Mike Bobinski, so after the last 2 coaches and years of suck, I think we will see some gradual success. Would love to see them go back to the Drew Brees glory days!!!! Just going to try and be patient....

 

 I am mainly a Purdue fan due to having lived in Lafayette and worked in West Lafayette for a good portion of my life. I also have a few family members who have graduated from Purdue. I also always try and support my local teams.

Optimism can be a good thing, but it often gets in the way of clear thinking which is obviously the case here.

 

Just picking on you!

I like how Bobinski handled the firing/ hiring process.  Took his time, all the talk about PJ Fleck and Miles, both of whom I am actually glad we don't have, and then to get Brohm I think was a good move.  I think he has a good plan and good contacts.  We will see..... fingers crossed.

I always liked Ohio States Jim Tressel. He was a great coach, sad his career at Ohio ended the way it did. For a while I kind of hoped he would become the Colts next coach when he was working for them. If he was still coaching I would have also loved if Purdue would have hired him. He is a university president now at Youngstown State, so I'm sure he's doing fine.

I believe he was banned from coaching in CFB until this year. I wonder if someone goes after him next year.

    • We made no attempt to re-sign Fischer or Glowinski. Ballard had faith in "his guys." Good job Ballard - Grigson would be so proud!
    • I wonder more why coaches continue to keep trying it when it's clear it isn't working. 
    • This team isn't going to win many games if the OL doesn't figure things out quickly.
    • Replace Pryor and Pinter and good things will happen.
    • The line has two problems.   1.  Pinter just isn’t good enough.  That’s a personal issue that I would be looking at if I was the Colts.  I would be thinking about trying Dennis Kelly or moving Pryor over to RG and letting Raimann play LT.  I will say there were a couple of plays where Pinter did hold his own vs Chris Jones but there are just too many plays where he gets turn styles or worse (see the play where he was turned into a speed bump for a sack).  Teams have figured out he’s the weak leak and are attacking accordingly.   2.  The issue Romo spot lighted today.  Communication.  Ryan is adjusting to a new offense and is having to think more than he normally does and because of that the Colts are having issues getting the protection schemes right.  Kelly gives the line their blocking assignments but Ryan gives the backs, tightends, and receivers theirs.  The best play to spotlight this was the play where KC sent five guys but both Taylor and Pryor went to block the same guy and no one picked up the guy coming inside of Pryor resulting in a free rusher on Ryan.  Romo seemed pretty confident Ryan is going to be just fine in about six weeks (which fits the patterns of offensive struggles the Colts have had under Reich at the start of the season with all the new QBs, Luck, Rivers, and Wentz all had the same adjustment period to being in a new system.).  So the good news is that should get better with time.  The really good news was that Ryan seemed like he was finally comfortable in the offense at the end of the game and the blocking was MUCH better.  Maybe it’s finally starting to click.
