I know it can go away in an instant.. but damn these last 2 seasons have been fun. Shew. LEO

Marcelino Ball will be returning for another year. That's a big one.

Go get some Taco Bell.  Then you'll win some bowel games.

Good sign for Whop coming back, and depending on What Penix, preseason top 20? Can’t count out Tuttle, needs more games under his belt

He is an 6’6 270 DE

We need a DE but Ole Miss defense was not good.  I probably pay attention but don't remember anything about him during game

He probably won't be an impact starter, but he'll provide decent depth.  He had 43 tackles and 2.5 sacks this year.

Can't even state how big it is for Fryfogle to come back.  I had been working under the impression that he and Whop would leave just so I wouldn't get my hopes up.  Him coming back is massive.  Even if Whop leaves, we'll still have incredibly talented receivers.  Hopefully Hendershot returns to his previous form.  He had more yards as a freshman than he did this year.  Different number of games, but he only had 151 yards on 22 catches.  Multiple huge drops too.  Hopefully he can get back to sophomore year form.  Throw in a 5th year from Fryfogle, and bringing Marshall, Matthews, a ton of young talent in Hewitt, Swinton, and a lot of others.  We're in great shape for another awesome season.

I'll echo everyone else. Fryfogle coming back is just big. So many programs in hoops or football have guys leave just a tad early and they come back a tad. This to me is the equivalent of a borderline first round/second round pick in NBA coming back for his junior year.

Get Penix healthy. Add the transfers and the others returning. I've never wanted a football season for IU to come so quickly. I'll start the wagon now. Eventually Corso is going to have to step down....how about gameday in Bloomington for Ohio St at IU next year???

I'm thinking the Cincinnati game would be a good one to have gameday at. Could be the first top ten matchup of the year!

I'm still like astonished... I haven't quite grasped this quite yet. 

I think NFL probably has questions on his speed and route running ability right now which is hurting his draft stock. Haven't seen him projected much higher than a 6th/7th rounder. Can't do much about the speed aspect but if he can hone his route running he could become a day 2 or early day 3 pick.

I agree. But I still didn't expect it. He made the right decision, though it was a tough one.

I figured 75/25 Fry would be gone. Great news. If Whop also comes back our “brand/mojo” will continue to improve as we should have a nationally discussed receiver corp.  We have another fun year on the way!!

I went to Burger King this week and ordered a whopper and fries for good luck. Didn't expect news this soon. Usually they don't get orders out this quickly. Still waiting on that whopper though. 

Whop would be big, but I actually think the offense will be fine and the young talent needs time to shine.  Ball can only go to so many targets.

Swann in the kid that would be very helpful for our D.  Hope he comes back

There are some other tranfers out there that had IU interest in recruiting.  Also some midwest, Indiana ties.  Wonder who they are talking to?

I wonder who are some of the readshirts or should I say true freshman that are ready to breakout?

Depending on who OSU loses we have to be a favorite for B1G west

Going to be hard for us to ever be the favorites in the west, at any point, with the way things are set up now.

Whop is AWFULLY excited for Fryfogle to come back. 

I noticed that, too. I’m not sure if it means much but it can’t be bad. 
 

This team talked a lot about being close and they’re showing it with how many guys are coming back. I still expect some transfers but I’m surprised none have come out and so many guys were quick to return.

Very true, and sad.  Hardbaugh getting an extension will make them more of a favorite....lol jk.  

Got to win a bowel game.  Hoping we have a dynamic pass rusher waiting in the wings- and, we get more creative with our running game/staple of running backs. Win a bowl game.  Two years, just came up short.  

Doesn't stop momentum, in my opinion.  Big offseason with Wellman - very excited to see what he can do.

For sure, we probably always will have to go through tOSU in the East.
