  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Greenwood at East central

    Amen....let's go Woodmen!! Get it done!!!
  4. Center Grove @ Avon

    Trojans battled last night. D was without 3 key starters (Daming, Hays, and Gephart) that impacted DLine, LB's and secondary, yet never quit. (Not blaming loss on that as Avon was so explosive with best throwing QB I remember this season. Receivers were outstanding as well). Hope some of the incoming seniors and juniors dedicate themselves during the offseason and step it up with a chip on their shoulder. This team won a sectional and that's not a given or a walk in the park. Congrats Trojans on a fine season!! Congrats to the O's on a fantastic regional championship. Good luck next week!!!

    you mean they're not already doing that? Did you see the stands for the Wisconsin game? Was embarrassing on ABC. So many stay out in the parking lots tailgating and never even buy a ticket..... Wilson used Tyler Natee (big hoss) and Rickie Brookins at RB's quite a bit last year...they haven't much sniffed the field this year. Not sure what has happened.....

    I'm seeing your point more and more DT. I'm also not fond of a coach acting like a SPAZ on the sidelines. I love the excitement when it called for....but its too much for me. I'm a believer of acting like you've been there before......
  7. You are the man Bob....congrats on a wonderful officiating career and an epic closing of a chapter. Time to start the new one!!
  8. 2017 Hoosiers

    Very interesting DT. I thought Lovie Smith, having the NFL pedigree, would perform better in this arena. Guess not.
  9. Nittany Lions vs. Buckeyes: Who Ya’ Got?

    As usual, I was wrong. Barrett was incredible with his arm. D and O lines were incredible in the 4th quarter when it mattered the most. You made the call!!!
  10. Nittany Lions vs. Buckeyes: Who Ya’ Got?

    I have much respect for both programs....and we agree its good for the Big 10 and college football to have Penn State back. I think it will be an excellent game, and I have difficulty seeing OSU losing 2 games at home in a single season. Wonder when that has occurred last? I am not throwing Barrett under the bus with passing, but I am still scared more with his legs and running than anything. He may flat out prove me wrong, and that certainly wouldn't be the first or the last time I was wrong. My wife can absolutely testify to that statement!! Enjoy the game. Now if we could find a way to move IU out of the Big 10 East.........
  11. Nittany Lions vs. Buckeyes: Who Ya’ Got?

    I agree both teams have great defenses....I'm just not sure OSU is as balanced as PSU in terms of passing game. No knock against Barrett, because he is an exceptional athlete. Just looking at the teams OSU has played the last 5 games, just not sure if that is a predictor of a strong passing game against the likes of a Penn State. (very different degree of opposition than teams like UNLV, Rutgers, Nebraska, Maryland, etc.) Also, it will be interesting to see what impact the weather has on the game tomorrow. I maybe off based, but I would rather take my chances with Barrett's arm vs. his legs.
  12. Nittany Lions vs. Buckeyes: Who Ya’ Got?

    Nittany Lions......but I am biased. If the Lions can make Barrett & OSU one dimensional and force him to pass, I really like their chances. PSU seems to have a more balanced offense.
  13. 2017 Hoosiers

    Its a good point DT. Now, I do enjoy and think its essential to have a solid D to sustain winning, but I get your point about the offense. I'm wondering if he made a mistake naming Ramsey the starter. I think he will be a good one, but the youngster seems to struggle with decision making and I question his arm strength. Perhaps the inability to make the tougher passes is on the O coordinator not putting in those plays. I'm wondering if they pulled the plug too soon on Lagow. Sure he makes some bad throws...but he lit up the Ohio State secondary. I don't think Wilson would have benched Lagow for Ramsey. (just an opinion) Any thoughts?
  14. 2017 Hoosiers

    Remember the football helmets of the Cameron era??
  15. 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.
