  1. Reminds me of Lynn Bowden, Jr when he was playing wr for UK. Similar build and seems to just make plays. His route running and speed in/out of breaks seems to create great separation. Love to grab him with the signal callers we will have to get the ball to him.
  2. Wow! Brutal. Our crossover games are on the road against the two best teams in the West. Time to find out how far we have improved as a program.
  3. Love his athleticism and aggressiveness, along with the ability to change pace to keep the defense off balance. Obviously a highlight film, but looked under control while probing for opportunities to attack. Thank you for the video.
  4. Instate versus national recruits may play a big role in some of the above situations. If IU had a better culture and coaching situation in place when the older Zeller brothers were being recruited, might that have made a difference? Conversely, Christian Watford had a great experience at IU, but his family had little to no interest in traveling that far to watch Trendon play. Every case and family are different, and some want to build on a legacy, while others want to blaze their own trail. I always like our chances better with an instate recruit, and like it even better if that recruit and family are already familiar with the coach and culture. Unfortunately, due to our coaching turnover recently, we have lacked that consistency to see the recruiting fruits realized.
  5. I'm with you. Loved the bowl game until we went conservative at the end. Watched the replay yesterday, and bad weather caused the feed to go out with us still up 13. We dominated that game until sitting back and giving up huge chunks of yards to great receivers and a horrible quarterback. That same Tennessee team is predicted to do big things this year. Our future is bright.
  6. Carson got good Devonte hot for 4 games in the tournament. 28 3's for a 35% shooter in 4 games. Great time to get white hot. However, he could have just as easily had one of his 1-10 from 3 games and shot Purdue OUT of the tournament. I'll take Yogi, but they did play different positions.
  7. Thank you for your efforts. Really enjoy this board and the IU football discussions. Keep up the good work! Where do you coach?
  8. Please Manning family, listen to Rico!
  9. The LSU thought with Coach O is intriguing. Blaze your own trail in your home state. He would sell more jerseys than all the Saints players combined. Will be fun to watch.
  10. Very true. But he also has the most experienced, grounded, and equipped support system to handle it as well.
  11. Funny you say that. The IU record holder in discuss ran the 100 and played running back for Homestead in Fort Wayne in the late 80's, Gregg Hart. Guy was 6'4" 260 with speed. Talk about a freight train.
  12. Any idea what events he will do in track? Would assume shot and/or discuss. Discuss guys usually have very good footwork and hip flexibility.
  13. Agreed. Ostrom recruits very well at IU. He joins a group of many others in that aspect. The IU brand and local state talent definitely assist the process.
  14. Thanks for sharing. Always enjoy keeping up with stories from the Fort Wayne area.
  15. I pictured a senior season similar to Nigel Hayes from Wisconsin. Trying to prove to NBA execs that you can shoot from three and play the wing, instead of manning the post and focusing on the defense and rebounding that would benefit the team the most. Wish him the best of luck, but glad to give those minutes to others that WANT to play that needed role.
