I'm happy for the IU program and Coach Allen is top notch!

 

Big wins over Penn State, Michigan and Michigan State, but we now know all three of those teams are down this year.

 

The REAL TEST for Indiana is this Saturday against Ohio State.  If the Hoosiers win this one, then they are 100% legit!!!

 

GO HOOSIERS!

They win against Ohio State and they can make a push for the playoffs.

Come on, Ohio State is on a higher level w.r.t coaching and talent. I bet Ohio State beats them something like 45-31 or something like that.

I think IU will lose something like 52-17.   

I was just sAying that if they would beat them they would have a path to the playoff.

Is it me or is Mike Pennix Jr., from IU, from purely a QB point of view, is outplaying Justin Fields? Justin Fields seems like the typical big program QB that benefits from talented WRs separating easily while Mike Pennix Jr. is putting the ball on the money into tight Windows with no run game.

IMO Pennix is a pretty talented QB. 

Plus Fryfogle is a WR to keep an eye on as well.

He is outplaying him, unfortunately Indiana can't stop the run. Nice comeback but it looks like IU is going to fall short.

IU lost but did show the whole country they belonged rated. 

Pennix- 27/51 491 yds, 5 tds and 1 pick

Fryfogle- 7 catches for 218 yds and 3 tds.

The nice thing about this year there are a couple teams who just drafted their future QB last season who could be a trade partner if we want to move up for a QB. Chargers and Bengals are going to have high draft picks. Washington and Jets are most likely picking a QB. I think the giants are starting to come around do they might stick with Jones.  I just don’t think a team will want to trade down as far as we will be drafting. Maybe one slips past the top ten and we fall In love with one of them. Fields playing style seems to be a lot like Kyle Murray.

IU made it a good game.   Unfortunately, the ceiling has dropped big time.  Before this loss, I think the ceiling was making the playoff.  That's gone now.   Winning their division in the Big 10 is gone.  A Big Ten Championship is gone.   Next highest would be a top bowl game.   Are they doing bowl games this season?

I’d like to revive this thread and say GO HOOSIERS!!!

If anyone wants to discuss, just quote this! Happy to talk about a good football team lol

Cancelled the game with Purdue this week and lost their chance at the Big Ten championship game.   Not a good week for IU.

So, the Big 10 now changes the rules to allow Ohio State to go to the Big 10 Championship game instead of IU.

Now, I don't know what prompted the original rule in the first place, but seems odd that it would be changed NOW that Ohio State would have been ignored due to it.

 

Just another disappointing/outrageous thing to remember 2020 by.

Yeah, there is more money to be made with OSU than IU.

    • It's a pipe dream. It's not happening.
    • There’s a very easy pick for the Jaguars to make but let’s see if they make it lol.
    • Crap, sorry.   with the 129th pick, the Seahawks select:   Anthony Schwartz, WR, Auburn   If that doesn’t make Russell Wilson happy, then 7@€# him!   @crazycolt1and the Jags are aim the clock.
    • Watson started this recent public trade thing by stating that the organization has flawed hiring practices.  And I think he never debunked the idea that the current owner was a lot like his father, simply because he is his son.   Its not really about the next season or even the team's won loss record over the next three years.  Its bigger than that.  I think it would be smarter to not accommodate whiners, and in a legal manner, not set the precedent of accommodating someone who conducts detrimental actions that undermines the new coach and the authority structure of the organization.   If you accommodate Watson, you set the precedent that all whiners need to be accommodated or else you end up singling some out for disparate treatment.  This shows what a cancer players like Watson are to an entire organization.    And, I would think a player like that has limited trade value, despite the rumors.  I would  simply move on from him....forget he even exists...would be the less time consuming and smarter move.  If he wants to sit out, fine, but I'm drafting this spring with the idea that he's going to try to put me at a disadvantage and wait until after FA and the draft before he tells me he wont play next year.   There is some root of the problem that has yet to be revealed.   If its about making bad personnel decisions, resulting in a losing record, I get that....but the HC, OBrien who was responsible for those moves was fired months ago.  Seems like Watson and Watt are still holding some kind of grudge over something, or simply launching their marketing brand by grandstanding.   If I were the GM, I'd just ignore Watson until he apologized for those statements instead of honoring his wishes, and then if the team struggles, show to the whole world what people like that can do to a team, blame the teams failure's over a whiner sitting out the season too arrogant and stubborn to apologize for something he should not have said in the first place.
