  1. so much for this being like his 2nd home and always wanting to come here. Hopefully he changes his mind again but this one stings.
  2. Does he play other positions or thinking his skills is better used elsewhere on the field? Any reason to believe schools are schools are recruiting him something other than qb?
  3. PU probably offered when he was in elementary school
  4. probably could shoot iu dept the email [email protected] (sports marketing email) Kevin Van Rooy Senior Associate Athletic Director for External Relations/Director of the Varsity Club [email protected] (812) 856-1489 Mark Skirvin Senior Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing [email protected] (812) 856-1401 Kelley Bates Senior Director of Marketing [email protected] (812) 856-3189 Robert Williams Associate Director of Marketing [email protected] (812) 855-4488 Adam Day Assistant Director of Marketing [email protected] (812) 855-7602 Ashton Stewart Assistant Director of Marketing [email protected] (812) 855-7034 Mack Nesbit Intern [email protected] Tyler Young Intern [email protected]
  5. which one committed? The one in the helmet may be a bit short for the secondary
  6. That was setup to repair his image after being accused of sexual assault.
  7. I'm sure that happens but not nearly as much as travels/carries/palming that goes uncalled. It's just become the norm because it's something that players are allowed to get away with more so than they used to be able to.
  8. I think it's more along the line of players are traveling/palming so much that the refs would have to constantly be calling it if they actually tried to enforce it. Then fans would get pissed because the game would become a whistle/turnover fest.
  9. that's right up there with keion brooks transferring to IU. will have to see it to believe it.
  10. I wasn't talking about NIL. But i know it has been said that a school can't give someone an academic scholarship in place of an athletic scholarship.
  11. I highly doubt that is legal given the whole scholarship limit thing. That workaround would make the limit non-existent. Trust me, if that was possible, then OSU would have 200 players on their football team by now.
  12. Apparently we care about his younger brother. And unfortunately his younger brother probably does care about Ron
  13. "The Hoosier crowd was very disrespectful to me and many other Big Ten players this year as well… it’s a two way street my friend you respect me i respect you. But once you cross that line all is fair game" https://www.journalgazette.net/blog/eyeing-iu/20220425/rutgers-ron-harper-jr-calls-out-iu-fans "Of course, that statement did not change things. There were such chants directed at players and teams throughout the season this year. If Harper's tweet is to be believed, Assembly Hall is known pretty widely in the Big Ten as a nasty place to play. This is in contrast to the crowds at Mackey Arena, which is consistently characterized as among the toughest places in the conference to perform. The crowds there rarely lapse into profanity, but rather roar from start to finish, creating one of the loudest and most disorienting environments in the country." In contrast to Mackey Arena? the place that regularly chants "IU sucks" even when we are not playing them. Yup, they are the epitome of class LMAO. I remember Haarms getting the profane chant but I also recall him acting like a "Purdue" player (aka somewhat understanding why he got the ire of the fans). While I wouldn't have joined in the profane chant, he wasn't an innocent bystander in it. And he isn't the first PU player to come and act like an idiot though.
  14. Given his older brother's comments, wonder how much of a shot we really have with Dylan.
  15. Yup fair is an opinion and we all have them. You do have a good point on colleges shouldn't be allowed to prevent players from making money on their own. I think most people just hate the idea of this being a minor league. But instead of having a draft like other professional leagues, we have it open to the possibility of teams just paying their way to victory (through setting up lucrative NILs).
  16. When we have people that make millions or billions annually saying how they can't afford an increase in the minimum wage without raising prices to their customers, then I think all options should be on the table to counter greed/income inequality.
  17. I realize that. It would have to be involuntary. But i probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than that ever happening.
  18. if someone gave me the choice of coming as a student and paying thousands of dollars each year to do so or coming as a player and getting to be a student for free, free housing, free food, and academic support....i'd take the latter in a second. It is fair compensation. It has been pointed out how much coaches make and saying it's unfair that players don't make anything. But it's not that players were not making enough, it's that salaries for coaches are getting completely absurd. Instead of paying players, they should have looked at reigning in salaries that coaches are getting. Maybe instead of paying coaches and their staffs millions of dollars, we could put that towards the ever increasing tuition costs that NON-PLAYERS have to pay.
  19. Hopefully more athletic than beetle
  20. Yea, probably would be a guard instead. Bates might be optimistic too but hoping he lives up to his rating
  21. Any rumblings? We are the only option that would allow for him to continuing playing with 2 of his teammates. Seems like it should have some pull. PG Hood-Shifino (from Montverde) SG Bates SF Geronimo PF Evans (from Montverde) C Reneau (from Montverde) Evans should make it happen.
  22. Eric Gordon was like NBA Jam with a cheat code lol. Ended up having quite the injury bug though.
  23. On paper, it's looking pretty good. Malik definitely seems better than Logan but only basing that on rankings as I haven't seen either play. For this year, this just makes us better where we were already strong. What we really need is for JHS to be all that and Bates to have his sophomore jump.
  24. It will depend on the guards and being able to shoot. If TJD returns, I'm not sure this moves the needle much this coming year. We aren't starting TJD, Race AND Reneau so this would provide some nice depth. It will be hard to keep them all happy if we just have 1 big in at a time though. If TJD doesn't return, then it's much needed depth (assuming we stick with 1 big (Race or Reneau).
