    This is a HUGE get. Our defense returns quite a bit but DL help was still needed. Good job by the coaching staff of keeping Sampson James, and offsetting the grad transfer losses with equally skilled incoming grad transfers.

    We have been in solid shape with Swann for a couple months. This is a great get for the DL. He was pretty much what you’d call a silent commit since January.

    It is great news for Swann to be coming back home to play for IU.

    We'll find out against Wisconsin in the opener, when they try to run it down our throat. Can't wait.

    I am not making this point to make fun of Mr. Swann, but when I saw the picture of him on the main page of the site, it reminded me of a picture you would see on a 1950's football card. You can tell from the sky in the background that it was a gray, cloudy day. The color of the Uniform and his hair and face isn't fully brought out and looks subdued, The color tones and facial expression give him that throwback look. You almost expect to have a dried piece of field mud on his forehead, or a slightly bleeding cut at the top of his nose.

    Trust me, there are several on the current CG roster that could help IU in a couple years. CTA is well aware.

    That would be cool if IU could get a CG pipeline going! (Ali g with Ben Davis, Warren Central and any other INDIANA solid programs!)

    If IU could somehow get the best seniors from the MIC every year, they could cut their recruiting travel budget to shreds. Maybe grab a couple Florida kids and a player or 2 from Illinois, Michigan, or Ohio. Recipe for success.
