  1. Fake Kneeldown

    Is the current rule or the way it plays out # 1? I'd treat that situation like I'm a boxer. It's customary to come out and touch gloves before the start of the fight/round but everything is in play. When in doubt keep you guard. Purdue and Brohm have been pulling out trick plays all year and his WKU team actually ran that play in their bowl game last year (while Holt was coaching as Brohm had already left). Someone on the Arizona staff should have been shouting heads up. What is the customary approach between player/coach and referee before running a trick play that could be blow dead inadvertently? Do most coaches tell the referee's before game what they have up their sleeve and does the QB whisper to the ref right before?

    I like that and 1 protected cross game a year

    Harsh reality of playing in the B10 East.
  4. Big Ten Recruiting Rankings - Early Signing Update

    A typical IU class? Indiana has the 32nd best recruiting class in the country. When has that ever happened before. Wilson never broke 40. https://n.rivals.com/team_rankings/2018/all-teams/Football

    You are just looking to nitpick Allen. I know you don't like Allen, that's fine. But he's done everything you've bitched about or said he couldn't do in weeks. You bitched about the QB situation all year. They just signed a 4* QB who committed to IU over FSU. Now you're trying to argue it's a bad thing because we have too many. You bitched about IU having "MAC" running backs. IU just signed a 4* RB from VA, the highest recruit IU has ever signed. What do you have to say about that? IU has inked the 33rd best class nationally, that's 15 spots higher than Wilson's best class. What do you have to say for yourself? https://n.rivals.com/team_rankings/2018/all-teams/Football It's fine to dislike Allen, but give him credit. You are acting like a child.

    You have these guys for at least 3 years, they can develop you know? What's wrong with having healthy competition to push yourself? I'd rather have 3 good QBs than 1 good QB who isn't being pushed for his job, how naive is that? IU just signed a 4* RB, the highest rated recruit IU has ever signed in the modern era of recruiting sites. Weren't you just bitching about RB's? IU returns all five of their OL next year and just signed OT who chose IU over MSU, Louisville, West Virgina, Virginia Tech and Pitt.

    Where in ATH does that mean CB. Think he'd be a hell of a slot receiver or 3rd down back out of the backfield. Why do you think the best teams are who they are? Because they have depth at every position. In this day and age in football you aren't going to survive the season with the same 11 who started it. What is their not to like about Penix? A drop back passer who was committed to UT and then chose IU over FSU? Been drinking today? For someone who criticized the QB position up until a week ago why on earth would you disagree with this signing? If UT and Florida State wanted him, I'm sure IU could use him. Let me guess your butt hurt because you're revolutionist idea of Reese Taylor returning the triple option has gone up in flames? I think you need a clue pal.

    Reese Taylor wasn't recruited as a QB but as an ATH. We've been over this. Wisconsin and the other big time schools recruited him as an ATH too. There aren't many 5-9 170 lbs QBs playing D1 football. Why? The best teams do it every year. Georgia will have 3 top 10 QBs in the last 3 classes on its roster next year; Eason, Fromm, and Fields. Plus I wouldn't say IU has any "blue chips" Penix is a 4 star de-commit from Tennessee with an offer from Florida State. Tronti and Ramsey were 3* that were recruited by the "blue bloods". Great pick up for IU, don't know what there isn't to like about this signing? Add him and then 4* RB Ronnie Walker who is IU's highest rated recruit of all-time and the future, especially on the offensive side of the ball is very bright.
  9. Eastern Hancock Coach

    Agreed. Was my coach at Cathedral. Wonder if he'll take a small role at Cathedral?
  10. 2017 Hoosiers

    So if he’s such a special player, what’s to stop him from being a special CB despite being 5-9? IU ran plenty of read-option with Ramsey in at QB as Ramsey was a dual-threat at Cincy Elder. That’s why IU recruited him.
  11. 2017 Hoosiers

    What are you talking about? Most DB's are 5-9-6. Last years first and second team AA CB's Adoree Jackson- USC 5-11 Jourdan Lewis-Michigan 5-10 Tre'Davious White-LSU 5-10 Minkah Fitzpatrick-Alabama 6-1. There are a lot more 5-9 CBs than there are 5-9 QBs
  12. 2017 Hoosiers

    He wasn't recruited as a QB rather as an ATH. Very good chance he plays DB or WR. There aren't many 5-9 175 lb QBs playing major college football these days.
  13. 2017 Hoosiers

    Very well could happen down the line but have an extremely tough time believing a 5-9 170 lb true freshman is going to come in and start day 1 at QB
  14. 2017 Hoosiers

    I highly doubt it. Won't beat out Peyton Ramsey and then Nick Tronti redshirted last year and was Florida's Mr. Football.

    It's the same personnel minus Lagow and potentially Cobbs but it is a year older. The offensive line will get better. Barring injury, Coy Cronk will start close to 50 games at LT by the time he graduates. I don't know many offensive lineman in the B10 who have started that many games that haven't played in the NFL. Morgan Ellison as a 220 lb true freshman RB showed great promise last year and finished in the top 10 in the B10 in rushing yards. Nick Westbrook (who was injured this year) went over the 1000 yard mark two years ago (in Cobbs place while he was injured) is back next year. Luke Timian and Whop Phylor (true freshman) are possession receivers and Timian was third in the B10 in catches. Ramsey was more accurate and more efficient than Lagow last year and turned the ball over less. IU's offense will be fine. This years offensive "dropoff", and I would hardly argue that as they were 5th in total offense in the B10, was due to inexperience, not lack of talent. The only question mark I have is Ramsey's arm strength but he was a freshman last year playing against some of the nations best defenses. He brings an added running dimension that was non-existent with Lagow. I would be more concerned with IU's defense than anything. IU loses 9 defensive starters that was a top 25 unit nationally. IU has definitely recruited more athletes in the last two years and I think they will be fine, just inexperienced. I fully expect 6 wins from this group next year given the schedule with winnable games against Iowa at home and Minnesota on the road.
