    Guess that's what you get some times with a coaching search and a big name hire (Just giving you crap). It is crazy some of the names they've been able to hire. I haven't talked to many U of I fans lately, but all the ones I knew were tired of him LAST year, so I'm sure they're really tired of him by now.

    I don't get why a coaching search matters. I like Allen whether we drew his name out of a hat or if we spent 3 million on a search firm to hire him. He can definitely coach defense (even with yesterday's bad game), he's done really well recruiting, and he seems to be a good leader and role model for young men. He's also likely to stick around if he does end up doing well. I don't know who I would have rather had even if we did a national search. My main question with Allen is if he'll have the balls to make the tough decisions and fire the people who need to be fired. He's made some really good hires (Hart, Rhea & Ballou), so if he can hit a home run with an OC, I really think we'd be on the track to 8+ wins within the next few years. As long as we dump DeBord and Hiller.

    All 4 look like losses!

    Here's Allen's post game comments. Pretty open that he and the team didn't do a good enough job (obviously). I'm confident this will be the worst defensive game of the year. He said the first penalty on an assistant was while the coach was yelling at our cornerback who just got burned. Allen said the ref told him he wasn't sure if our coach was yelling at a player or a ref, but still threw the flag. Imagine that happening to Meyer, Harbaugh, or basically anybody else getting called for that. Seemed pretty clear in the first half that the refs had it out for us. We didn't need that with how bad we played!

    Talk of Allen being on the hot seat is premature I think. He's been here for a year and a half and we're 4-3 this year and still have a chance to make a bowl. He'll be fine as long as he has the balls to get rid of the people he needs to get rid of this off-season. DeBord, Hiller, Inge all have to go. They've all been terrible at their position. I can live with Inge staying, but if DeBord and Hiller return I'll start doubting Allen. Today was terrible. No ifs, ands or buts. All facets were terrible. Having said that, the defense hadn't been terrible this year and we basically only lose Crawford next year. We have tons of young talent on defense. We have tons of young talent on offense too, but I don't think we have the coaches in place to take advantage of it. Get the right coaches and we can take off. I would imagine the defense is starting to get tired of watching our crappy conservative offense and is tired of getting thrown back on the field after quick offensive series. Take next week's whoopin and survive healthy, get ready for Minnesota, and then have a much needed bye week to prepare for the last few games. It ain't over yet!

    Agreed on DeBord and Ramsey. If next year's offense is Ramsey under center and DeBord calling plays, Allen might be on the hot seat. They might be able to get by with Ramsey if they have a real offensive coordinator, but I'm tired of just getting by. Penix needs to be under center game 1 next year.

    Northwestern wins it in overtime to drop Nebraska to 0-6. He'll get time to turn it around, but what a terrible start for Frost in Nebraska. Their fans can't be too happy at the moment.

    Northwestern just drove 99 yards in under 2 minutes to tie it up with Nebraska. Scored 10 points in the last 2:30. Headed to overtime.

    Unfortunately we played bad against Rutgers (they got blown out by Illinois, down 34-0 against Maryland today), terrible against MSU, fine against OSU, and terrible today. 3 out of our last 4 games have not been good enough to beat any team left on our schedule. Really need to pick it up.

    Well boys. Enjoy the rest of this one. I might go find literally anything else to do.

    What a joke. Just let the guy run free.

    When DeBord leaves, he can take Inge with him. Special teams has been a disaster all year.

    @hoosiertildeath in case you missed it, 21-10 Iowa at halftime. Iowa gets the ball to start the 2nd half.
