    Season Predictions 2019-2020

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

    Indiana Academics, etc

    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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I can't believe they keep McFadden in the game on defense. He is awful.
  7. No agenda. Just objective observation. He did not impress. Would he start at any other B10 school? Not likely.
  8. Two interceptions. What game are YOU watching.
  9. IU # 47 has been worthless the whole game and he just gave up a TD. Take that jerk out.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.

    Fire Fred Glass

    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.

    I think the root problem with athletics and academics at IU always starts with the Board of Trustees. They are mostly appointed by the governor and are by definition political animals that have sucked up to the right politician. Few have any real competencies in administering a multi-billion dollar university. Until the people of Indiana demand better it will never change.

    It is hard to believe anyone that hasn't been asleep for the last then years could still defend Glass. He has failed. End of discussion.

    This will be Coach Allen's third year. It will also be his freshmen and sophomores. It is time for some real progress. No more excuses.
