  1. 2017 Hoosiers

    Remember the football helmets of the Cameron era??
  2. 2017 Hoosiers

    No doubt his offenses were off the charts....even if he could muster an average D, they would have been a tough out for anyone in the conference and would have absolutely moved up. Shame that we couldn't see him a few years there with Allen as his D coordinator, as the D improved to good the only year they were together.
  3. 2017 Hoosiers

    O coordinator at OU....O coordinator at OSU. It seems like a wash to me. Impressive sure...as an O coordinator. Doesn't make him a great head coach and perhaps a major reason why IU's teams were so unbalanced in terms of offense vs. defense. Research his teams D rankings and stats (scoring) while at IU....both in the Big 10 and D1 overall. I'm not super negative on Wilson....can't argue with his explosive offenses.....but his defenses were polar opposite.
  4. 2017 Hoosiers

    Kevin Wilson improved the program...no doubt. Explosive offenses, while having the worst defenses year after year in the Big 10 and some of the worst in D1 football. That didn't change until the hiring of Allen. I guess we shall see if Wilson is coveted as a head coach by other major conferences. But he never impressed me with his focus on defense. Hopefully one day, the Hoosiers will find a coach that will bring balanced offenses, defenses and special teams. Too early to tell about Allen. Certainly has his work cut out for him in the Big 10 with much bigger names in coaching to compete against for talent.
  5. 2017 Hoosiers

    I'm not trashing the Ramsey kid at all. He showed incredible moxie against UM. I just can't tell about his arm strength...the past patterns were very short, but they may have been the game plan given he is so young, and UM's DL vs. IU's OL. I do know that Michigan consistently throughout the game only had 1 safety back, and he would many times come flying up at the snap. So they did not respect IU's ability to go deep, especially over the middle. And they left their corners to fend for themselves, even against Cobbs. Michigan was taking away the run and making the youngster beat them with the pass....which is very sound strategy. According to the Indy Star, Harbaugh praised Ramsey's play.
  6. My only "complaint" about the facilities was the lack of bathrooms (none) on the visitor side. Other than that, not a bad place with some character. Next time I will know to hit the men's room on the way in to the stands. Thought it was ok, and can see how Cathedral wanted a home game. I believe the original contract was for 4 games....so in theory the series is over. Does anyone know if it will be renewed? 4 TO's factored into this game....not the facilities.
  7. 2017 Hoosiers

    Ramsey getting tremendous pub in the Indy Star for the future. I was at the game yesterday. I guess I am torn if he has the arm strength to make all of the throws needed by a Big 10 QB. Thoughts?
  8. Should have in 1980 when they won the HHC and stopped East's winning streak. But 2 close losses knocked the STARS out of the playoffs. Playing Mitchell back then really hurt them for qualifying points, even with blow out victories.
  9. DTs Dandy Dozen - College Recap Oct 8, 2017

    True about Tennessee...but Purdue wasn't the job it used to be and Brohm took it and look at the results. Who's to say he couldn't be the savior of Rocky Top? Guessing he would love their facilities..... https://247sports.com/Article/top-five-facilities-in-college-football-37790331
  10. DTs Dandy Dozen - College Recap Oct 8, 2017

    I think you are spot on.....Love what Brohm has done so quickly for the Boilers....but I see greener pastures ahead for him. (Purdue will have to step it up with the $$$ to hold on) He is a hot, hot name. Even getting the NY Times to write about him. https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2017/9/20/16334894/purdue-football-2017-jeff-brohm-head-coach-offense http://www.cleveland.com/osu/2017/09/why_purdues_jeff_brohm_is_earl.html https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/06/sports/ncaafootball/michigan-purdue-big-ten.html Being in the Big 10 west is a plus for Brohm. He could absolutely put them in the Big 10 title game in the near future.
  11. CG put on the field 19 new starters this season....been a treat to watch them grow and compete. They have been in every ball game except BD (2nd half). There is no jury out on their sustainability.....future looks bright. That is simply your talk. Regarding the HCC...anything is possible, so never say never...I get that. The other sports compete against a number of HCC schools. Just not seeing yet the benefit of football driving the need to change conferences. If there is ever a conference change, it would be for well more than football. The MIC is and will continue to be the premier Indiana 6A conference and one of the best in the country for the foreseeable future.
  12. Cameron McGrone is one of the best (if not the best) LB I've seen in the MIC. And that includes watching MIC games for years and witnessing some incredible LB's. That young man is flat out impressive. Predict he will have a nice career at Michigan.
  13. You may have missed the mark on your first statement. You been to to southern White River township lately? http://www.dailyjournal.net/2017/05/20/more_bigger_schools_coming_to_center_grove/ Wont stay elite forever? Only time will tell. But how many feeder systems in the state are better than CG? To be clear, I am not saying a move to the HHC is a bad thing. Can't see it happening in the near future.
  14. All 8 MIC Teams in the top 15. 4 out of first 5 teams....6 in the top 10. No nights off in that conference!!
  15. NC is a rapidly improving program. Well done Coach O' Shea!
