  1. Wonder if some of the OSU players will rethink their decision to opt out, given what some NFL GM's have stated recently. If not, could that make OSU come back to the rest of the pack to a certain degree?
  2. Best analogy I've heard in awhile. Instead of trying to kick the ball and falling on my butt again, think I'll just kick back and have a beer!
  3. I sure do. We never played Snider, but talked with him at camps. He was solid at IU. If I recall, he was built more like your modern husky or Will lb, but was very athletic and could really pop you. One of those guys that just had a nose for the ball.
  4. Thank you for bringing this FOOTBALL information to the board. I don't get on Twitter, so B1G football related news is much appreciated!
  5. Those were some titans in the college coaching world. They played a huge part in my childhood college basketball experience growing up in the 80s and 90s.
  6. I like you're thinking. Season ticket holders are going to have some late nights if we're going to average 6 overtimes per game. Talk about getting your money's worth!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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 re
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Thank you for your efforts. Really enjoy this board and the IU football discussions. Keep up the good work! Where do you coach?
  14. Please Manning family, listen to Rico!
  15. 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.
  16. Very true. But he also has the most experienced, grounded, and equipped support system to handle it as well.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Thanks for sharing. Always enjoy keeping up with stories from the Fort Wayne area.
  21. 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.
  22. Really interested to see what Durham can do playing exclusively off the ball. His shooting really seems to suffer when asked to be a primary ball handler and facilitator. When Rob got healthy toward the end of the year, Al's shooting really seemed to improve along with his confidence.
  23. Great article. How refreshing to hear a young player expressing a desire to play whatever role the team needs, instead of talking about "his game", and how that translates to college. Could be semantics, but it seems we're hearing that from all of our incoming players. Can't wait to see how they all develop over the course of their careers. Pretty incredible that the Jordan documentary could have the effect of inspiring the work ethic of an entire new generation of players. Also interesting to hear a young player refer to Jordan as the GOAT, when they've grown up hearing more about Leb
  24. I think the B1G assumes a reputation of physicality within the league, and teams that emphasize that style of play gain an advantage. Purdue and Wisconsin are two huge benefactors of this system. Watching Purdue at IU this year, the man guarding the ball hand checked the entire length of the court. That gains an advantage of disrupting the offensive flow if allowed. Kudos to the coaches that recognize this being allowed, and taking advantage of it. Kentucky under Tubby Smith thrived on this.
