    IU Crystal Ball.....

    It's up to the coach to work out chemistry issues. Archie wouldn't be recruiting Muhammed if he thought he would be a chemistry issue.

    IU Crystal Ball.....

    ? Blackmon averaged nearly 16 a game and shot almost 40% from 3. You take that any day regardless if the player is on campus 6 months, 2 years or all 4.

    2022 Recruiting Thread

    A bunch of good PG's from Central IN in the 2022 class. I prefer Smith as well as I think he can play both guard positions with his ability to stretch the floor (Jordan Hulls), but don't think you could go wrong with Smith/Comer/Walker. I suspect IU will still heavily covet Bruce Thornton but...

    Burks commits!

    If recruiting isn't everything, then why are the same 4 and 5 programs who recruit the best year in year out also the best 4 or 5 teams in college football year in and year out? It's not by coincidence. Ohio State, Michigan, and Penn State all recruit at a significantly higher level than...

    ? Minnesota has had one good year under Fleck in a year where they missed Michigan and Ohio State and got Penn State at home. I'm going to need to see a sustained level out of success before I crown anything for Minnesota. Nebraska has had one winning season since 2015 and Purdue has a losing...

    Bull they don't. Who are consistently the best teams in the country year in and year out? The teams who consistently recruit the best. Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, etc are the best teams in the country because they recruit the best talent. Like I said, Wisconsin is 2-9 against the Big 3 from...

    Closing the gap in terms of what? Talent? Competitiveness. The Big Ten West may be a more competitive division in terms of parity because there isn't a single elite team, but it's nowhere close to the degree of difficulty that is the Big Ten East. Not by a long shot. Until Wisconsin, Iowa...

    LOL. Wisconsin is 2-9 against the Big 3 from the East since the divisions split. Michigan State has been a perennial top 20 team the last decade although have dropped off the last year or two. That isn't a same level game. Michigan State on average recruits better than Wisconsin. Rutgers is...

    LOL. In terms of talent, Michigan and Penn State are way ahead of Wisconsin and light years ahead of Minnesota. Ohio State, Penn State, and Michigan are the only three program in the B10 who consistently have top 10-15 rated recruiting classes. College Football is all about talent and depth and...

    And now the lowest rated recruiting class in the Big Ten.

    Crystal ball for Mcculley

    I don't know what's funny about that? Nowhere near as accurate as Ramsey, worse TD/INT ratio, mobility is non-existent, etc, etc. Let's be real Sindelaar threw the ball 112 times in a little over 9 quarters because Purdue's line and RB's sucked. You throw the ball 52 times and each of your first...

    Crystal ball for Mcculley

    Because he's 5'9 175 lbs. He's a great athlete who is very raw at QB. Given Brohm's offensive style that requires QB's to go through multiple progressions down the field, that's an extremely tall task for a guy who is only 5'9. I know there are exceptions to every rule, but you just don't see...

    Crystal ball for Mcculley

    Haha I'm sure you will. Can only imagine this conversation 2 years from now as Jackson is lined up in the slot and Purdue fans still trying to tell IU fans how Brohm got his "guy". Never fails.

    Crystal ball for Mcculley

    What do you mean? To say McCulley wasn't Brohm's top choice at QB all along is simply sour grapes on any Purdue fans part. If Jackson was Brohm's top choice all along, he had over a year and a half to get him as no other P5 schools were recruiting him to play QB. You think it's a coincidence...

    Worst IU loss in last 10 years

    It was a bad loss. But nowhere near the worst loss the last 10 years. Losing on your home court by 20+ points as a 20 pt something favorite is way more of a bad loss.

    Trey Patterson

    Or...Gillispie is an idiot who never signed a formal contract. UK lucked themselves out of that one in a big way.

    Trey Patterson

    If you do understand the variables, then you would understand why this isn't an apples to apples comparison. Had Tom Crean not been owed 8 figures after 2 years, then yes the likelihood of IU dumping Crean for someone like Brad Stevens becomes a much stronger possibility. UK didn't fire BG...

    Worst IU loss in last 10 years

    Ha I understand. Most painful loss for me is still in the 75 tournament to UK, with a one-armed May.

    Worst IU loss in last 10 years

    To be fair it says last 10 years. I don't think losing in the national championship constitutes as a "worse loss". Tough.... sure.
