  1. Expressing interest versus applying for membership are totally different. If there is an official application to join the Midwest Conference, then schools would decide if they become a member.
  2. Frontier had a bye week for week 5 in 2015. As a coach I loved it, for many reasons. Our players were able to heal some of the mid-season bumps and bruises, etc. We were able to look at some different things scheme wise. It gave our coaches some time off to spend with their families. We practiced Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.
  3. Coaching Carousel

    Is Lloyd Carr still working in the Department of Athletics at Michigan?
  4. Coaching Carousel

    A name to keep your eye on for the "Prime Time College Jobs" is Greg Schiano. Former Tampa Bay Bucs and RUTGERS head coach. Think about it....Schiano resurrected RUTGERS, went to 6 bowl games at RUTGERS.
  5. Coaching Carousel

    Kevin Wilson IU- How many coach's is IU still paying between hoops and football? They have to give a coach an opportunity to build a roster and culture. IMO - this program has been cursed since they fired Bill Mallory. Brian Kelly ND- BK will have a bounce back year in 2015. BK will leave for the NFL before he gets fired at ND. ND has given coaches that couldn't hold BK's jock more time. Darrell Hazell Purdue- Patience and time will be severely needed in this situation. Danny Hope's recruiting set the Boilers back years. Big 10 Brady Hoke Michigan- HE GONE. What's next....Les Miles - Dream on, Brett Bielema - he has been there done that in the B1G, Harbaugh's - Fantasy. Maybe they ought to look right down the road at M State - Pat Narduzzi. Kirk Ferentz Iowa- Ferentz is a fixture in Iowa City, they will make another surprising run in the near future. Kirk is the safest one on this list. Tim Beckham Illinois- Hottest seat at the table, needs to produce. Illinois set a precedent when they fired Turner and Zook after fairly successful runs in Champaign. Beckham hasn't come close to either of the previous two HC's performances. National Mark Richt Georgia- Richt always finds a way "to totally redeem himself! Frank Beamer Va Tech- Frank will go out on his own terms, he built Va Tech from nothing. Bret Bielema Arkansas- Bret has been there done that in the B1G, he is making progress doing it his way in the SEC. He stays as the Hogs will make even more progress in 2015. Just one man's opinion.

    I think it is great to see a prime time Indiana High School player stay in state instead of going south. Also, it is good to see Hazel keeping in-state talent in-state, Markell Jones may have not even been recruited by Danny Hope. I totally agree patience is needed in this situation, Hopefully the powers to be give Hazel the patience and time needed.
  7. Purdue 2014

    So a player coming off the bench to confront another player is OK? YOU, dream on!
  8. Purdue 2014

    No question. Bucket game is a must win!
  9. Purdue 2014

    In addition, the personal foul against Anthrop was ridiculous!!! He made a clean hit against a DEFENSIVE PLAYER (not a defenseless player). Then #3 from Minnesota comes off the bench to confront Anthrop, #3 should have been kicked out of the game. #5 shoved Anthrop to the ground, he should have been kicked out. Poor job by the officials of handling the situation, they should be reprimanded by the B1G!!
  10. Purdue 2014

    Boilers have shown some life and promise the past few weeks. IMO - Appleby has been the a difference maker. The offense has been showing less smoking mirrors and more going right at the defense. Which I believe you can do with a QB that has poise, maturity, and playmaking ability. Makes the offense be able to hang their hat on something, for the Boilers right now it seems to be the ability to run the football. Just one man's opinion. Boiler Up!
  11. Purdue 2014

    Agree. OC Shoop is a pro guy, so he needs a pro style QB to run his offense effectively. Etling is far from that and may never be that...Just move Etling to Free Safety already! IMO, Purdue totally wasted Rob Henry's college career. Henry should have been moved to Safety the day he stepped on campus.
  12. Purdue 2014

    I would have to disagree with you on Appleby. Sure Etling makes things look easier because he is a much better athlete than Appleby. Etling has athletic skills but lacks significantly in quarterbacking skill. Appleby is a pure quarterback and has great leadership & field presence that Etling severly lacks.
  13. Purdue 2014

    I think Boiler fans are going to have to be very patient and allow Hazel some time to bring in his "own guys" in recruiting. Danny Hope is a poor job of recruiting B1G type of players. After going to several spring practices and just doing the "eye ball test", Purdue does not have many players that pass the test as B1G players in size. Yes they do have some speed, but size and athleticism is where the roster really is far behind other B1G programs.
  14. Purdue 2014

    Time will tell if Hazell magic is real. IMO, Purdue is a bottom tier job in the B1G and will be until they can keep up with facilities and support services for Purdue student-athletes. The Boilers are way behind, tough to recruit when this is the case. I bleed black and gold. My point being it doesn't matter who is the coach, Purdue is not "keeping up with the Jones'" so coaches could be cycling through until a true committment is made.
  15. 2014 Hoosiers

    I'll bite. I agree with all of your predictions but the following: BGU 75% W 2-0 Best of the MAC. Need to repeat last years outcome in Bowling Green. ---- I would put this closer to a 50-60%, Coach Clawson got it going with very good recruiting and Coach Babers is a very good coach. IMO this will be a good football game with 2 high powered offenses. The scoreboard might explode. Penn St 50% W 5-4 Despite a good season by the Nittney Lions, IU repeats last years outcome at home. --- IU beating PSU 2 years in row? When I say that out loud it does not seem possible, Coach Franklin and his crew will be a tough hurdle to leap. But I think your 50% is a fair prediction. Purdue 100% W 6-6 Purdue will get better, but thanks to them IU earns its first bowl game since 2007. --- IU will be the favorite in this game, but I think 100% is a little too high for an Old Oaken Bucket game. 70-80% would be closer to reality.
