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

IU had more total offense than Purdue.  Your point, in addition to showing that you didn't really understand the thread, doesn't even hold  up.  Merely a deflection. 

Nothing personal, just facts.  

More psychoanalysis doesn't help.  Trying to ascertain my mental state is making it personal.  I have called you on this several times, yet you continue to do it.  I see it as you raising the white flag of surrender when you try to psychoanalyze.

According to 247sports, It looks like Purdue told Stepp that he only has until December 20th to sign with them or they will sign other running backs. Stepp told them that he's probably going to wait until February.

I believe he is set to visit Purdue this upcoming weekend

 

Strike that:   Sounds like he cancelled visit

IUs offense will be fine. They had no QB last year, a young O-line, lost 3 of their top 4 WRs. Starting TE was hobbled most of the time. Defensively, Allen had them at #26 and special teams were rated #8. Given time they will stabilize that program in all 3 phases. Not taking anything away from the progress that Purdue has made as well. But the so called demise of IU from its current state is rediculous.

 

 

Oh, and their recruiting class is like the best they had in......well actually, ever.

The last p/p running back (that I followed) to leave the midwest to join the bright lights of LA was Ty Isaac of Joliet Catholic Academy (IL).  Isaac, now a 5th year guy at Michigan, never quite lived up to the billing after a productive freshman year and the Trojans' coaching change.  I hope Stepp represents out there.  Congrats to the young man.

No it won't be fine.  IU's offense was good when Kevin Wilson was coaching there.  He's gone and we'll never see them approach what they had.  IU is going nowhere but backward.  Others in similar situations (Purdue, Nebraska and Maryland) all either have better head coaches or recruit better players.  And they'll never approach Penn State, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Northwestern and Wisconsin anytime soon.  Very soon they'll be much closer to Illinois and Minnesota then they are the legit teams in the conference. 

Congrats to Stepp going to USC.  A former IU assistant (who also left when Wilson was canned) gets a good prospect to tutor.

So, one prestigious academic private school is willing to take him but another won't? Are Notre Dame's admission requirements for football players THAT high or was ND turned off by his lingering hamstring issues?

I alwasy thought Isaac was better suited to play LB. At Joliet Catholic you could tell he was dominating based on his size.

It was the level of academics that kept him from Notre Dame and yes their standards are quite high.

That they are...no doubt.

But not a walk in the park to get in USC either, based on this data
