If IU wins , they won’t climb in any of the polls. If they lose, drop out of the top 20. 
this isn’t like losing to Auburn or Florida or LSU. 
Indiana should pass on this menial bowl invite

We drop significantly

O$U is a school only a "mother could love". They are so easy to dislike.

Regardless of the snub, this exposure is critical to Allen’s recruiting. Potential recruits will see LEO live and how this defense flies all over the field. ‘22 and ‘23 recruits are the foundation to

Boy IU is really in the driver’s seat now , recruiting wise 

Opting out is what cowards do. Not particularly happy with the result (or the offensive play calling) but you don’t sit that game out. Ever.

Anyone else have a feeling that Ole Miss is going to win by double digits? I don't think IU can keep Kiffin's offense under 28 and IU's offense hasnn't looked great in the post Penix era. The storyline will be that IU didn't belong in the NY6 conversation from those who probably don't even realize they lost a player of Penix's magnitude. 

I was close. Figured Ole Miss would eclipse 30. I missed this one. Looks like IU’s offense was a no show for most of the game.

Play calling didn’t put IU in a great position. Tuttle’s a serviceable back up, similar to Ramsey without the reps or experience, and it showed today. Really struggled to push the ball down the field and locked on to too many receivers. However, IU neglected to run the ball the first 2.5 quarters and likely did them in. IU’s defense was ok today but if you would have told me IU held the Ole Miss offense to 26 points, I would have guessed IU was a 2-3 TD Victor.

Agreed. Stevie Scott had 99 yards. But the running game was no where to be seen in the 1st half. Some ball control would have kept the defense a little fresher. But the script was written for IU to have the final drive to win the game. Unfortunately the understudy was given the lead part and he couldn’t deliver. A healthy Tuttle is not close to Penix, a wounded Tuttle, well, you get the idea.

I think long term Tuttle is fine with reps and experience. I like his mobility in and outside the pocket. But yes doesn’t have near the arm strength of Penix. I remember a lot of people saying there wasn’t a huge difference between Ramsey and Penix and that was put to rest this year.

Good experience for the IU program.   Just another building block in the climb upward.  I think IU has 15 florida kids on the roster so this was a nice homecoming for them and a great recruiting opportunity for the staff.   

We are competitive with Tennessee and Mississippi.   I couldn't be more pleased.

I guess Dabo is right when it’s hard to gauge teams that play so few games. I mean they play osu tough. All and all it was a good season for IU. They have a great coach that develops players better than anyone. If they get some 4 star in the pipeline who knows how good they can get.

OSU turns it on when needed.  That is now a proven fact Hoosier fans.  Let’s stop with thinking the margin of victory of that game was any indication of the gap between the two programs.

OSU dropped 49 on Clemson folks...49.

I have long said that osu plays to the level of their competition. In the years that IU has been close; most of them, they were lucky to be close. This year though, I think OSU and Day wanted to prove some point. They were not going to let up. I think that is the difference between Day and Meyer. After a few years of IU keeping it close, Meyer brings a team to Bloomington and just destroys IU. Credit goes to IU for not folding early in the game this year. As far as osu goes, I don't think any of us who hate them expected that type of performance out of that team.

That's really good news as well I hope Whop comes back too,  those 2, hendershot at TE and Stevie at RB are solid weapons. I hope Penix can stay healthy as well.

IU-Notre Dame Agree to Home-&-Home Series

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana and Notre Dame football programs announced on Monday afternoon a home-and-home series in 2030 and 2031. IU will travel to Notre Dame Stadium on Aug. 31, 2030, and host the Fighting Irish on Sept. 27, 2031.
 
"I'm looking forward to facing one of the most storied programs in the history of college football," head coach Tom Allen said. "It's tremendous for the state of Indiana and for our fans, and it will be a great opportunity for our players."
 
The teams last met at Notre Dame on Sept. 7, 1991, and last faced off in Bloomington on Oct. 21, 1950.

I hope you are as well, Bobref.

Another question is will Tom Allen or Brian Kelly still be coaches of their respective teams by 2030?  Odds say probably one if not both of them will have moved on by 2030.

nice:   was he not getting enough playing time?  or was the pull to play with his cousin too much?   seemed like a odd transfer but truly been out of the college football loop for months now

Ha. So True. And I can't escape them in Central Indiana. They're everywhere. The candy stripe guys were a disgrace during Romeo's tenure at New Albany and when they followed the self described "Movement" around the AAU circuit.
