    Don't care how we do it as long as we get 6. Anything beyond that is gravy.

    Care to share the numbers of the clear financial commitment? And, how is that paying off? "It’s Year 4. After a 40-17 loss Saturday at Minnesota, the Illini are 11-30 overall and 4-25 in Big Ten games on Smith’s watch." https://chicago.suntimes.com/2019/10/6/20901448/lovie-smith-illinois-college-football-experiment-isnt-working

    I'm not impressed by our defense, but nothing about a team whose only goal is to get to a bowl game will likely be all that impressive. I think our defense is good enough, and statistically much better than last year. Our home versus road defense is also significantly different which worries me for the next 6 games.

    Indiana does not have a defense that's going to standup to OSU (categorizing OSU as a team that is .500 or better is misleading) who is one of the best teams in the country. They flopped against MSU. Certainly not making excuses there. Based on your categorization, we have two meaningful samples to analyze, and in one of those games our offense was crippled without Penix. I'd like to see this defense against more B1G teams. An objective statistical measure says our defense is pretty decent - not non-existent as it has been in the past. I really don't expect our defense to do much against the OSU's and other National Title contenders of the world. I'm not even saying we have a good defense. I want to see them hold their own in the next 6 games, but it's not accurate to say we don't have a defense. They just certainly are not anywhere near a top tier or capable of competing with the best teams.

    The defensive rankings of the SP+ control for opponents and have us ranked around 30th I believe. So once you break it down by the teams we’ve played using an objective methodology... We have a defense. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Yes, you seemed to have missed his MSU performance. He’s definitely the better QB. Regarding wins, I said a while back I would only expect that Penix could account for an additional win or two above Ramsey given our schedule, but an extra win or two is all that we need.

    Like it or not IUFB is in its best shape in decades and IUBB is healthy and trending positively despite decades of fumbles. It’s been a long time, but right now when things seem to be on the rise is not the time to lose patience and throw it all out. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    What do you mean at a place like Louisville? They’ve been in a bowl every year since 2010 other than last year. They won 8 or 9 games every year since joining the ACC except last year. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
