IU-Purdue Recruiting Deadlock

Recommended Posts

If Purdue can win Indiana year in and year out, they'll be able to win their division at least on a semi-regular basis. Purdue actually won Kentucky in recruiting this year, getting the top KY recruit and 5 of the top 11 KY players.

They should sue Darrell Hazell for negligence and for attempt to impersonate a head football coach.  

And he should counter sue Morgan Burke for being the worst AD in the history of Big Ten athletics.

 

One thing I will say about Brohm is he seems to really embraced Purdue. It's rumored that his family loves West Lafayette, whiich is a great community and school system. He's traveled with the basketball team on recent road trips. He did recently say in an article that he loves the idea of excelling in a place that isn't used to the annual success you see at Ohio State, Michigan, etc. 

Honestly, with his offenisve mind, I'm thinking Purdue loses him to the NFL before another college program.

No doubt, the Boilers floundered under Burkes direction. But look at them now. He set up both football and basketball for success, attendance is up and facilities upgrades are under way. 

 

You've got to give Burke credit for those positive changes.

I can't recall all of the specifics, but it seems like the arrival of Mitch Daniel's jump started the upgrades. He truly understood the importance of a revenue generating athletic department.

Maryland's goal is to become the Oregon of the east.  Nike money built Oregon athletics, and Kevin Plank and his Under Armour cash are doing the same for Maryland.  I was a bit skeptical when the Terps joined the Big Ten, but I think it will turn out long term to be a huge win for both entities financially and athletically.  It also solidifies Penn State's place in the conference.  Having Rutgers and Maryland in the conference gives PSU more a sense of belonging.  They felt like outsiders for the first 20 years they were in the league.  

I think Pitt also needs to be added.  The B1G is a lot more logical for them than the ACC.

I can only give Burke a thimble of credit because the renovations came a decade too late, after he chased off Tiller.

The BIG will never admit city based universities (Pitt, Cincy, Louisville). They only align with major land grant institutions. I believe the next two schools to join are Virginia and North Carolina. 

This would better balance the divisions given the expected reemergence of Nebraska under Scott Frost 

East

Purdue, Indiana, Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina

 

West

Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Northwestern, Michigan. Michigan State

Cmon trojanDad. OSU and UofM are land grant universities.

Hug it out!!!  I get what he meant.  Although UVa and UNC (Delany's holy grail) would be welcome additions, especially for basketball, this dirt farmer is hoping for Mizzou and Kansas.

BTW, the University of Wisconsin is located in downtown Madison (the Badger state's second largest city)...

I understand they are land grant.  But your statement that the BIG would never admit city based universities.  Just having some fun.

More serious...I don't believe Michigan or Northwestern are land grant.  I believe just a few years ago the BIG was recruiting Notre Dame, which is also not land grant.  I see the BIG more focused on the quality of the school, and take pride that many of their schools are ranked by various groups in the top 25 for US public institutions.  But, you may be right in that the preference is land grant.  I truly don't know and just rambling with you.  Certainly, the last 4 adds with Penn State, Nebraska, Maryland and Rutgers would indicate you are correct.
