    I turned it off. This is just the usual IU football team. Poorly coached.

    I understand that everyone is frustrated. They have good reason to be. The facts are that IU has not been a top 10, top 20, and now not even a top 40 basketball program for many years. You can dance around that any way you want, but that is a fact. The football program has been a disaster since the 1800s. Are things getting better under Glass? Not really. Basketball is picked to finish 11th. Football is still IU football. As far as facilities go, I don't really credit Glass for any of that. The University paid for it. He just had some input on design and so on. I don't think Glass is a good judge of coaching talent overall. And lastly I like having some decent non-revenue sports teams, but without basketball and football success it is kind of hollow. If you want success look at schools that are successful. They would never tolerate what the IU administration has tolerated forever.

    Season Predictions 2019-2020

    I wonder just how important this season will be to Glass and Miller.

    IU continues its decades-long decline in academic standings. I think this can be attributed directly to the BOT (Board of Trustees). They are a major problem and they are making IU irrelevant academically on the national scene. IU decades ago was considered to be one of the best public universities. Thanks to the BOT's focus on quantity vs quality of students IU continues its long slide to the bottom. If you care about IU, contact the board and let them know that you are dissatisfied. http://www.insideindianabusiness.com/story/41010262/two-indiana-schools-break-top-50-list-of-best-colleges
  7. I really don't like seeing teams like EIU on the schedule. I would rather see another FIU. It will be nearly impossible to gauge progress in correcting game one fundamentals with a team like this.
  8. I see plenty to criticize. Not much to praise. Cons: No running game other than Penix. This will doom them in 7 out of the next 11 games. Incredibly poor tackling. The O line doesn't block well at all. Very, very poor third-down defense all day long. Poor zone coverage on the passing game. Receivers drop way too many. Deboer went way too conservative way too soon and it really cost them. I could go on. Pros: Penix can run. Hendershot is a player. Justus is great.
  9. I can't believe they keep McFadden in the game on defense. He is awful.
  10. No agenda. Just objective observation. He did not impress. Would he start at any other B10 school? Not likely.
  11. Two interceptions. What game are YOU watching.
  12. IU # 47 has been worthless the whole game and he just gave up a TD. Take that jerk out.
  13. Penix was disappointing so far. Maybe he can redeem himself in the second half. The defense has looked pretty bad playing a second division MAC team. Tackling is awful. The running game has been non-existent and I think Allen has been outcoached. From what I see so far there won't be a bowl.
  14. I think IU football will be better this year if they don't lose too many key players to injury. IU is notorious for slow starts. I hope the defense can hold BSU until the offense gets into a good rhythm.

    You are wrong as far as I understand it. The board is made up of nine trustees, and its business is overseen by six officers. Three trustees are elected by alumni, and the remainder are appointed by Indiana's governor. The board meets six times a year on IUcampuses around the state.
