  1. Peyton Ramsey liked winning at Purdue so much last year, he transferred to Northwestern so he could do it again.

  2. I always wondered how it must feel to complain about a 24 point win on the road in the B1G. Truth be told, it feels really damn good!!! 😜

  3. I was headed to UT/Texas AM to propose during the game... Covid altered that plan.. when I got the news I drove to her house on Tues and did it right then. Still surreal and we are obviously incredibly happy, we announced the news last night on FB.. so I wanted to let you guys know as well... she said YES!

  4. I won't start a new thread for each player, but I'll edit this post to add updates as they are developed over the next 10 days. Added a fun wrinkle to these with a projected stat line for each player. Should make for some good discussion: Khristian Lander Trey Galloway Anthony Leal Jordan Geronimo Armaan Franklin Trayce Jackson-Davis Jerome Hunter Rob Phinisee Race Thompson Joey Brunk Al Durham

  5. Oh Lord, you’re entitled to your own opinion, you’re not entitled to your own facts. The Covid “policy” was to downplay it and claim it would just go away. Just stop. But I’ll stop too because I gave you an opening to get into politics again.

  6. The “terrible policy” would be at the national level. We literally have a leader who thinks we are “turning the corner,” when it’s clear that cases are increasing at a shocking level. The White House is a f#$cking cesspool of COVID infections and inaction, and there are still - miraculously- people willing to defend our woefully inadequate response. In case people have forgot, we are a nation that historically gets things done. We make shit happen. We put people on the moon and defeat facism across the globe. But now we shrug our shoulders about controlling a pandemic that other countries have already vanquished. We have simply give up. It’s too hard. If this is too political, so be it. I just don’t care anymore. I’m over pandering to people who are too ignorant, insensitive, or impatient to deal with this.

  9. Wait, are you seriously claiming the national media treats all mass gatherings equally in how they portray them regarding covid? Come on now. I love you but come on. And its both sides, to be clear.

  11. I am worried about where we are going. That’s the whole point of why I post on this thread. I am honestly shocked that you have missed that in my replies. First off, neither I or many of the scientists have defended the gathering of the mass gatherings from a COVID stand point. I didn’t and I don’t think it’s wise. Assigning blame to media for not recognizing the risks frequently enough isn’t a green light to do the same. It’s not safe. Period. For one who’s not interested in “assigning blame”, this is a rather hypocritical point you’ve made. But I accept that point because we should learn from it. (It doesn't appear that we are, but we should) That said, I’m not obsessed with assigning blame. I’m obsessed with recognizing the absolutely crappy situation we are in right now and learning from that. We aren’t in this situation as a result of doing a good job. Plain and simple. Call that blame if you want; it’s reality. If you honestly think differently then I have no idea of what to say. I am obsessed with doing more. I am obsessed with learning from successful blueprints and applying that. I am obsessed with not doing the same things that led us back to the position we are in. Isn’t that the definition of insanity? We all love basketball. Do we just accept the fact that we finished in 10th place? Do we not want better? Do we not want the powers that be to improve our program given our standing? Do we look a PSU as a team we want to model our program off of or do we look at MSU? Or do we just say it is what it is? Do we say “well, we got Romeo and TJD......that’s good enough....let’s continue down this path?” Come on, IUFLA....you gave me a Lion King quote “it’s in the past” that contradicted what you quoted 3 paragraphs above: “Those who don’t understand history are bound to repeat it” (which ironically WE LITERALLY JUST DID as a country). Which is it? Given the context of our conversation all my points are in alignment with the latter. You are a self-admitted problem solver, and from my conversations with you, I gather you are a very intelligent man given your profession. Can you just answer this question: Can we do do better? Because you just belittled my desire for this as not being a realist. If your answer really is “no” then we can just end the conversations and agree to disagree. And don’t worry, by answering yes I won’t view that as assigning blame to anyone.

  13. I have a tagline on my email. It's a quote from Henry Ford... "Don't find fault, find a remedy." I try to practice that and believe me, I work in a industry where there's plenty of remedy that needs to be found. You seem obsessed with assessing blame for some reason. I do subscribe to the notion that "those who don't understand history are bound to repeat it" but continually looking to blame doesn't solve anything. It just widens the divide. Understand history, and use the lessons learned... We should have initiated a travel ban right from the start...Oh, wait! We did! And we were widely panned for it. We should have instituted an internal travel ban. The cities with the largest amount of cases should have been shut down, including ALL travel. But while NYC did lockdown, the lack of an internal travel ban has them back in dangerous territory. Who should have invoked that ban? The federal government? State? Local?Well, it never happened, and the contact tracing (get it anonymously? Really? Think that one would pass the Constitutionality test?) hasn't happened on a wide scale. So we are where we are. What did we focus on? Well, martialing resources, both human and supplies, to the right places. Working on vaccines and treatments, and protecting the most vulnerable. As far as the spread goes, how many lives have been sacrificed by the numerous protests/riots/gatherings (including those in DC this weekend) in cities like Minneapolis and Kenosha...two very hot spots right now...was the Constitutional right of those people to assemble more dear than the innocent lives it will without a doubt cost? Should federal/state/local governments moved to shut them down? My point in all of this is, we HAVE to find the balance between this awful pandemic and normal life. I don't think it's fair to compare numbers from countries that aren't even as big as some of our states. I don't play "devil's advocate." I'm a realist who sees the world for what it is. I bring up the situation in Japan because it's relevant and lends to my point about balance and not having the cure be more damaging than the disease. Worry more about where we go from here rather that constantly looking in the rear view mirror... As Rafiki said in "The Lion King" "It's in the past."

  16. This season kind of reminds me of the 67-68 year when we won the Big 10 and went to the Rose Bowl. I pray we continue our winning ways and make it back to a major bowl game. I wonder how many members were around during that magical time?

  18. I'll just say this. Short of Notre Dame football and UK hoops fans.....Ohio St football fans are right there in the category of which I despise most. Please for everything that is right in this world give our kids the strength to win this week. Go IU.

  19. Correct. But, the same people/media that are calling for small Thanksgiving gatherings should have been outraged about the large street gatherings all spring and summer. Yet, they never said a word about it. That's my point.

  20. I was too young for the Pack dynasty. But when I was a kid in the 70s the kid’s library had a bunch of books on them. Then as an adult I read Maraniss’ account. Great book. I love the documentaries that pop up on that team too. I am not a Packer fan—although I do have relatives that are—but I really like hearing about that Packer team. And Hornung was great. His relationship with Lombardi was something else. He truly was the golden boy. Great personality. I am over 50 now. We lost Joe Morgan recently. A lot of the figures from my youth, be it sports or elsewhere, are being lost and it’s sad. RIP the golden boy, Mr Hornung, #5

  21. If we win, I might make a drunken cardboard cutout of myself, and take it swimming , maybe even take it fishing.... in Showalter Fountain. Social distanced, of course. Edit: Not really.. but I'd go cry happy tears so they can enjoy unseasonably warm water for the night.

  27. Can remember watching the Packers as a kid with Starr, Taylor, and Hornung. Seemed like they ran a sweep every other play. Had a tremendous o-line too, ofc. Oh yeah, and that coach...what's his name?? 😊 RIP Golden Boy
