  1. Sorry....I missed this question a long time back. Jovan was on the 2 deep this season as a RS frosh. He started in the PAC 12 championship game for the Cardinal. His former CG DT teammate, Cameron Tidd (also a RS frosh) was in the rotation this season for Vandy. Aukerman had another great season for Army...and it's not over. http://goarmywestpoint.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=5237

    I followed the conversation thread. You gave some background on Purdue's OL to drive home the point that they didn't have the credentials of an IU line. I simply stated they outplayed IU on that given day, and perhaps their OL coach deserved some credit. That is not blather....that is fact. This is a forum intended for discussion and I decided to participate. I'm not sure why everything becomes personal with you, especially if someone doesn't align to the way you think. (in this case, I wasn't defending or disagreeing...simply stating Purdue OL outplayed IU's OL, regardless of their resume) Have a drink...relax. Enjoy the weekend and considering watching America's best rivalry game Saturday

    I simply made a comment that the OL that you seemed to discredit certainly did a great job against IU. That is why I said credit needs to go to their OL coach. I'm quite aware of Jones performance....but it was an exceptional day for him and the Purdue OL against IU in the bucket game. Or do you wish to call those stats "uninformed blather"? Try a Snickers dude....and a larger size of footie jammies, as the tightness in the belly area is making you grouchy.

    No way in the world can IU factor wins against Purdue and Maryland at home next season. They will be dogfights. Both of those programs are improving. Losing Cobbs & Thomas hurts. And I am not sold on Ramsey....at all. Especially his arm strength.
  5. Markese Stepp

    Assuming that is accurate, that does not bode well for IU's front 7. Because that group of "misfit toys" blew open holes all day for their RB's. 200+ yds rushing for Mr. Jones. Perhaps Purdue's OL coach is the real deal.

    .....at the college level. But as we know, it takes more than one player, even if it is the QB.
  7. I will never forget Coach Streiff while the NC coach several years ago during a game at CG that wasn't go well, calling 3 consecutive timeouts and "up downing" his entire team through them. I had never seen it before or seen it since. I'm guessing he got his point across.

    Looks now being reported on ESPN http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/21607338/tennessee-volunteers-turn-focus-purdue-boilermakers-coach-jeff-brohm
  9. Heck no....sorry for my poor communication....your conversation was great and much appreciated. Wasn't sure how to take the Streiff to CG comment...As you can guess, we love our guy in the Grove.
  10. Thanks for sharing. I wasn't sure why the snide comment (or what seemed as one). I certainly didn't mean it disrespectful. I asked exactly for the reasons you mentioned. Sometimes with a resume like Coach's, you want another challenge. HSE has quite a resource of players and an outstanding feeder system. Makes you wonder what could happen with Coach Streiff's leadership. Just a curious question...didn't mean anything negative. He will always be a Cathedral man.
  11. Penn v Ben Davis 6A Title Game

    Played a lot of comfortable games this year on turf. But when weather does come into play, it impacts both teams. BD was fantastic this season which no one will debate. But I think you are rationalizing this weeks score a little when you say anyone would lose by 50 or more in Lucas.
  12. Penn v Ben Davis 6A Title Game

    Not true...teams faced them on field turf all year long....and also at times when weather had zero influence.
  13. Any chance Streiff could end up at HSE? Or is he truly done?
  14. 2017 Hoosiers

    So true!! I love this kids attitude. Being a senior and captain, he never got down....kept working and leading from the sidelines and when he got the reins back in his hands, has played very strong. Check out his tweet about his decision to come to IU if you get a chance. This young man is full of class.
  15. 2017 Hoosiers

    Trying to look at the class half full...2 of the 4 wins this year are against FCS opponents. 1 Big 10 win against a cellar team in the West and hopefully another this week against a cellar team in the east. Other than the UVA win in Charlottesville, not a ton for Allen to hang his hat on this season. Let's get through one game at a time, and see if they earn the right with a .500 record and 4 FBS wins to play in a bowl game. I will certainly watch bowl game, but not sure win or lose, I would call it a great year.
