  1. Rats Leaving the Saban Ship?

    It may wear thin really quickly but he gets new kids and new coaches and just keeps winning. Until it affects his win loss record he probably isn't changing. I think he is a fluid enough coach to adjust with the times. And I would guess rather those guys enjoyed their time with him or not they appreciated it. I also he will receive no shortage of resumes to fill any vacancies in his program.

    With a new QB and key early season injuries I think most would have predicted a little bit of a set back for the Hoosiers. The BIG 10 East was exceptional this year so I think making a bowl game has some merit. IU finished 4th in East behind Michigan who is #5 nationally. I think the season had both rewarding and disappointing moments. I support Wilson and think he is moving things in the right direction. However, it would have been nice to see IU win against Wake and Northwestern and put a better performance up against Purdue going into bowl season.
  3. 2016 Hoosiers

    I say fire Wilson! Hire darrell hazel or the next Big Mac guy...start over from scratch. Bowl games aren't what they used to be. The nine prior to Wilson show what the Hoosiers are capable of. We should settle for nothing less than a national championship. Actually, I think I expect the next coach to bring us home a super bowl victory and the Lombardi trophy. If Wilson was any good he would be letting the air out of the footballs!!! Coaxh Wilson has represented the program well and moved it in the right direction. I respect him, some fans don't. Oh well we can argue all day but I have enjoyed his tenure as much as any coach since Hep
  4. Former south side grad, Nathan Braster, is also doing big things there in defensive side of the ball. That's a great program under fleck

    I am shocked you said Indiana has been rebuilt based on your often doubtful outlook of the Hoosiers under Coach Wilson.
  6. 2016 Boilermakers

    I think that would be a great hire. He Recruits and wins at a place that has natural limitations with military link. I think you can go for the highest caliber players for that system or an air raid system at Purdue. It's going to be tough to get the traditional 3-5 star recruits to west Lafayette with Ohio state, notre dame, and Michigan so close. i think what Bill Snyder did at K-state was impressive and that is the kind of guy you need to find. Art Briles will be looking for a job but does Purdue want the baggage that comes with that hire To be clear I hope Hazzell makes a bowl and beats everyone but IU. I just don't like to root against coaches (except Kiffin). If he doesn't though I think the have to search outside of the box. I think Coach N (not going to attempt to spell it correctly) would fit that bill.
  7. 2016 Boilermakers

    So I think we are saying same thing...get someone with an untraditional approach (Johnson-type) or someone that is just unreal good (Fleck-ish)... I am an IU fan and bored so only reason I got on this side of the world. My wife is Purdue alum so I hope they turn it around but in my opinion when if you want to win the Big 10 in the state of Indiana you have to think out side of the box.
  8. 2016 Boilermakers

    Who do they get or what type of coach? I think you have to go untraditional at Purdue? I think you have to get someone that's Mike Leach or Paul Johnson-esq.... What tiller did at Purdue was sensational and I don't think next hot young MAC guy replicates that. Although if I could hire fleck I would in a second.
  9. 2016 Hoosiers

    Maybe "walked" into wasn't the best wording but what I was alluding to was the fact that Wisconsin was already a top tier team prior to Chryst's arrival as head coach. Under Gary Andersen they were 10-3 and 9-4 and prior to that the team had won 68 games in seven years under Bielema on top of what Barry Alvarez had done. The point is that he took over a team that was already at the top. At Pitt he was in a situation that was more of a rebuilding job and his win total wasn't as high. I do acknowledge that Chryst was an excellent assistant prior to becoming a head coach for the Badgers and played a part in Wisconsin's overall program success. Again I think he is a good coach. Fitzgerald is a heck of a coach as well. I think he has done very well. Fitzgerald didn't inherit a situation that hadn't had any success though. Both Randy Walker and Gary Barnett had finished atop of the Big Ten prior to Fitzgerald becoming head coach. The last time IU finished on top of the Big Ten was 1967. I think Wilson is as good as Chryst and Fitzgerald, you do not...we will have to agree to disagree I guess.
  10. 2016 Hoosiers

    I don't think that Wilson is much different from these guys. Chryst was 6-7, 7-6, 6-6 in his 3 years at Pitt, which is probably a lot closer to IU than what he walked into at Wisconsin and won 10 games. Fitzgerald has had 5 of his 10 seasons with 6 wins or less (2 of the last 3 were 5-7). I think both of these guys are good coaches and I think Wilson can bring IU in line with what Fitzgerald has done with Northwestern, where the team is competitive annually and steps up to win 9-10 games when things come together right. Obviously...the defense has to get better and a suitable replacement has to be found for Sudfeld to do this.
  11. 2016 Hoosiers

    I like Wilson a lot and definitely think he has made strides. I do agree he has to continue to show improvements. That's going to have to include the defense next season because of the lost pieces on offense although I think offense will still be productive.
  12. 2015 Hoosiers

    You and I are only ones saying this but I agree. Wilson is good enough to make people mad about losing! He has set an expectation, which is a start to the culture change people are asking for. I think you said it best in last post let's let him reach his ceiling before we call for his head.
  13. 2015 Hoosiers

    Besides Mallory he's as good as anyone else that has been there.
  14. 2015 Hoosiers

    So is the larger frustration with Wilson or Glass and other IU administration?
  15. 2015 Hoosiers

    What would IU have to do to get Chip Kelly?
