Indiana Hoosier Football Reaches Pivot Point

Recommended Posts

Do not fret, IU still has Ball St and UCONN to soften the blow from opening up in Madison. 

Not sure UCONN will have anybody left to field a team in 2020 

number of transfer portal players is up to 20 or so

I think the portal changed those rules where schools could block other schools etc etc  

This for Cronk also. As His old coach had him in the fold. And Allen block the move.

Not a good look for Indiana, at near the bottom of the BIG class rating. also. Mark Hagan all ready to coach at Texas. Unless Fred ante's up to keep him.

Anybody want to comment on the sub par recruiting of the Hoosiers this year? Bottom of the conference.  I’m not feeling it, going into next year. I know Nowlin is loving it. He can keep his comments to himself.

Strength coach Ballou is being courted by Nick Sabin. Poor Indiana, coaching merry-go-round.  
maybe he has some loyalty.

The implication being that if he leaves Indiana for what he perceives to be a career-advancing opportunity at Alabama that is somehow disloyal? Disagree strongly. He’s a professional football coach.

So.,,... a professional football coach can’t be loyal.

Sure he can, but it’s a matter of priorities. He can be loyal to his family by doing the best he can to advance in his career and provide for them the best he is able. Sounds to me like that’s what he’s doing. That’s where his loyalty belongs.

Not very many coaches are going to be loyal to a bottom-half Big Ten program when Alabama shows interest.

Agreed, it’s been happening since Wilson took over. At least thePositive of all this is we know all the lost assistants Wilson and Allen lost we’re giving Indiana at least a year of there expertises. And they must be good to get  the attention of top echelon programs. Purdue doesn’t have this problem.

Guessing its hard for most programs to compete with Bama's budget for its coaches......and having Bama on your resume.......

Being in the coaching ranks, and knowing a number of college coaches, one thing I have learned.......There is no loyalty to a head coach; and if there is, it is rare. It seems coaches on that level are always looking for the next opportunity.....ALWAYS. It is the nature of the business....not the game, but the business side of this sport. Greg Mattison is a prime example.....coached under Lloyd Carr as a DC; then goes to one of their big rivals at the time in ND. Comes back to UM under Harbaugh and then goes to Ohio State now. To be a strength coach at Indiana where he may be making something around $150,000 a year to Alabama where he could make twice that much is a no brainer. That said, I do not envy college coaches at all; to never really settle somewhere long term is not attractive in my mind. The travels that the ones I know have taken have been ridiculous. There are a couple of them that look back and say yeah, that was nuts.

Alabama?   He is VERY tied in with those strength coaches, not sure they would be able to convince Saban to take him on or not. 

I am sure he will have a lot of suitors:  Sits a year, will be a RS Sophomore when eligible at new school unless NCAA passes that 1 time free transfer rule before he has to use that shirt on transfer year

Alabama is stacked at running back. I don't see him getting much playing time there.

That is really disappointing, I was just thinking IU had its feature back for 2-3 years. Any chance he stays??

Haven't seen any reports where a player enters the portal but stays......
