Purdue Wallops IU on Draft Day - Is this a referendum on Brohm-Allen performance comparison?

So, what is a school like IU to do? 
 

First, they have to decide what they want to be. You can’t draw a road map without a destination. Then, they have to decide how to get there. 10, or even 5 years ago, it would have seemed an insurmountable task to get them to a spot where they can play in a bowl game every year. That takes players, and IU’s recruiting limitations have been well documented on these pages. But this is today, and there is a weapon that can allow a school like IU to compete on equal footing for recruits: NIL. it is increasingly all about the money at the player level when it comes to recruiting. Get out there and recruit donors before you recruit players. Start with Mark Cuban. Build a great big war chest of $$ and entice recruits with NIL deals. Start getting some 4 stars who could go to OSU or Penn State or Michigan, but are lured to IU by big $$. Have a couple of good years in a row, and recruiting momentum builds. It’s a difficult process, but it starts with making the decision to be competitive.

Maybe on the right track...depending which rating one believes, IU was ranked between 20-30th nationally with their 2022 class.

Taking 247, they were ranked 30th.  That is higher than Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, Purdue, Northwestern, Maryland, Rutgers and Cincy.  Challenge, as usual, OSU, Michigan, Penn State, and MSU is ranked higher.  Its life in the Big 10 East.

The Big 10 East will typically result in 4 losses for IU.  They is a tough hole to crawl out of.....leaving little more room for error.

So this is what college football is coming to?  No wonder I'm losing interest.
