    Bears 2016/2017 and Now 2018

    It was clear though from some subtle changes, that someone was no longer calling the plays; especially on 3rd down. 🙂

    Good timing for the Packers to fire their coach then, huh? lol
  3. I agree about Texas. Oklahoma would be an interesting pickup...revive the Oklahoma Nebraska rivalry. That said, it is good to hear that DeLaney is thinking of other options.

    Tyler Trent

    This young man is worthy of his own topic. This is from the college football awards, and shows the young man being as humble as ever, regardless of the stage. What an inspiration. I was looking for the SportsCenter feature on him that included clips from him being at the Ohio State game. There are a LOT of clips anout him when you search youtube, and all of them are worth watching. It is awesome to see how the Purdue team has taken him in as a part of the team, and has become the heart and soul of that team. Rivalries mean so little with stories like this. Yep, I am an IU fan, but I sure hope the Boilers can finish this great year off for Tyler.

    Urban Meyer

    I actually liked listening to him on the pre game and post game shows. As a coach, I typically do enjoy that perspective.

    2018 Hoosiers

    This current situation was beyond his control though. What I do know is having taught here with Hoeppner's sister, and now his niece don't have much to say that is positive about him. He coached with Terry at Miami of Ohio. Not sure of all the details, but it was related to how he treated players. So, the question I had was, was he part of the culture that promoted the culture that was taking place at MD?

    Urban Meyer

    Here is a question I have that I did not think of until the Michigan game. Ryan Day was the OC. I don’t remember seeing anything about Kevin Wilson. I thought he was the OC there? Did I miss something? Yeah ok, that was more than one question.
  8. While it’s not the wishbone, Kokomo had some success running the option game at the 5A level.
  9. The way I read, I would say yes. Anyone read it different?

    40 second play clock

    Having coached multiple levels this season, it is simply a matter of logistics. Our JV and Freshmen games are officiated with 4 man crews. Getting the ball set in a timely manner becomes an issue if the 40 second clock is being used. It is also difficult to find kids that want to be ball boys for those games. Heck, we struggle to get a crew to work the chains. Some of the teams on our schedule travel a decent distance to play a road game, so there are even fewer people that go who could be interested in being ball boys. Just one old coach’s thoughts.
  11. It appears that just having this as a pinned topic is not enough. Please read and PLEASE be careful when speculating.
  12. I think what will fuel the expansion talks as well........I think it was Wannstedt who said, no way the committee keeps the B1G champ out of the playoffs for a 3rd year in a row. So, I guess we are heading down the road of guaranteed bids for some conferences? I am willing to bet that Commish DeLaney is having a few conversations today.

    THE Game This Saturday - Army Navy Game

    This game should be on the bucket list for ever fan of the game of football. I could not open the Army link, but googled it and found a great video promoting the uniform. I got chills watching it. The Navy unis are pretty cool as well. It is crazy to see how quickly the tide has shifted in the series the last few years. If you have not done so, "A Civil War" by John Feinstein is a must read for fans of this game, as well as fans of Football. I know it is a LONG shot, but Go Navy!!

    2018 Boilermakers

    That is why the games are settled on the field.

    2018 Boilermakers

    I think this will demonstrate how the 2 conferences measure up as far as depth. These 2 finished in the middle of the pack in their conferences, and both have played very well at times, and both have played poorly at times as well.
