    Fire or ‘Way to Go!’ Tom Allen?

    I’m not one of those that have brought up money? And that you continually throw into a group of “elementary solutions”? Gotcha! I’ll just keep relaxin’ and you keep makin’ us all smarter.

    Is this pointed at me again? We agree and you’re just arguing against air if anything, so save yourself the time typing.

    They’re all beatable, but I can’t get on board with it being better for us to not be playing all 4 of them every year, because they’re all still solid programs. We’ve beaten Penn State once ever and that was a Sandusky fallout team. Playing those top 4 East teams every year is a brutal mountain to climb when trying to become a consistent bowl team.

    I don’t disagree at all, just saying I really believe winning at least 3 would be more realistic if the B1G was either undivided or divided in a different way (in hindsight, Leaders and Legends was split very evenly, but I get that power shifts happen) and we played a better mix of East and West teams, based on historical data. If it stays divided how it is (and I don’t think it will, FWIW) we have very little margin for error and in an already tough conference like the B1G, that’s not ideal for a perennial bottom dweller trying to move up.

    All-time .381 winning % vs. West teams as opposed to .164 against the East.

    We have an all-time .164 winning % against schools in the East. I think that’s worthy of complaining about. I’d much rather Iowa, Wisconsin, and Nebraska be the teams we’re shooting for rather than Ohio State, Michigan State, Penn State and Michigan. If you disagree, I don’t really know what to tell you because the difference is obvious. If it isn’t, we’ve won 33 games EVER (winning % of 14) against the top 4 teams in the East. You wouldn’t rather have more than 3 shots per year against the West as opposed to what we currently face? Ok.
  7. You continuing to mock that is getting really, really old just so you’re aware. I’m sorry that you can’t help but to completely take something out of context just so you can attempt to sound smart.

    You keep throwing out stuff about coaches, but it isn’t all about coaches. Since you keep mocking my “throw money at it” statement (also, congrats on continuing to be one of the least pleasant people I’ve ever come across on the internet, which is saying something) I’m assuming you’re talking at (yes, at) me. It’s more than coaches. Tom Allen can win at Indiana. We don’t need Les Miles (who is overrated as all hell.) It’s technology. We’re way behind in technology in offices, meeting rooms, the stadium, Mellencamp, etc. It’s nutrition. It’s getting better with the SEZ project (which we threw money at!!!!). It’s development. We “threw money at” 2 HUGE aspects to the program in Ballou and Rhea to keep them here, but they have to share a weight room with the other 23 sports. Probably not gonna get it done long-term. Could use some money to throw at a football-only one! It’s recruiting budget. This staff has recruited its tails off and it’s showing. Imagine what would happen if we threw more money at it! It was asked how Indiana can win more in football. It will first and foremost take more money. We don’t have that money, and likely never will have enough to compete at the top of the division, but in college football, it’s All. About. Money. No matter what, it comes back to $$$. I answered the question, I didn’t say Glass should be fired for not doing it. Instead of mocking that idea, I’d be more than happy to read how you think Indiana can win in football.

    How many schools win in football without spending money, and a lot of it? You don’t give yourself a chance without spending truckloads of it. It was asked how to win in football. Money is the first step. Every single time. And I never said anything about basketball. Entirely different thing.

    Exactly. And it still remains the only answer. Money wins in football. A lot of it. More than we have. Which is my point.

    I’ll provide a short answer for him (for the football question): throw money at it. As much money as absolutely possible. Get rid of unnecessary salaries, tell McRobbie to frig off on taking B1G money, pull it out of couches. Put it into facilities, recruiting, nutrition, academics, coaches, staff. If you want to win in football? Throw. Money. At. Football. (Quick addition here...be prepared to pay the Justin Fields’s of the world 6 figures) This isn’t me picking a side, this is just the simple answer.
