Northwestern - Indiana Post game

Recommended Posts

After keeping a 5 win IU out of his bowl projections, and then sending a 6 win IU team to Detroit, Jerry Palm now has a 7 win IU team headed to the first annual Arctic Bowl in Greenland to play Liberty University.

So.. do we get ranked? 

I think a lot depends on the result of the SMU / Memphis game.  If Memphis wins, I can't see us making it.

Good QB-✔

Good RB-✔

Improving defense-✔

Good FG kicker-✔

Good punter-✔

High scoring offense-✔

This are important elements to a good team and IU seems to have it covered...lets keep it rolling..its November and i haven't even checked the basketball schedule to see when the first game is..🤟

It will be interesting to see where SMU would slide to if Memphis wins.  If Memphis gets another touchdown and wins by 3 scores, I could see SMU sliding out of the top 25.

Good perspective on that!

However , has IU passed them up since them? 

.Given the finish of that game against MSU I think it is debatable regardless

.It is near certain if IU wins in two weeks.

An interesting ranking question would arise if IU somehow did beat Penn State,  Penn State is ranked 5th in the country.  If IU went into Happy Valley and won, where would the voters place an 8-2 IU team in relation to a 9-1 Penn State team.  

Now, I'm not delusional enough to think that will happen,but it would be an interesting ranking scenario.

Having said that, I truly feel we have a chance to beat Michigan at home, assuming we come out of Penn State with no major injuries.  .

Any updates on Penix?

Kid reminds me of a quote they use for thoroughbred horses: a locomotive with glass wheels.  He'll be a Heisman contender if he could play a full season.

Depends how close the voters look at our 7-2.

Our four BT wins have been against teams that are 3-21 in conference. Think we will be top 25 if we beat PSU (highly unlikely) or UM (fighting chance at home but they are certainly looking better than they did earlier in the season).

In any case, we are going bowling and that is GREAT and a step in the right direction for the program.

Could IU have won the Big Ten West?  

Don’t think so. Not sure how they would’ve fared against Iowa, Minny, and Wisky.

Minnesota's schedule has been as tough as ours (not very), and if UI can knock of Wisconsin, we'd have a fighting chance.

Illinois beat Wisconsin.  IU always plays Iowa tough,  We do usually suck against Minnesota, however.

I think Minnesota is going to lose three of their last four games.

They are 5-0 in conference by beating PU, NB, MD, Rutgers and Illinois. Kudos to them for beating the teams they have faced but the party is going to end next weekend against PSU.

Idk if they beat Purdue if Moore and Sindelar don’t get hurt on the same play IMO. And I agree they’ll likely lose at least a few of those games.
