    Athlon: Big Ten Coaches Talk Anonymously About Conference Foes for 2019 https://athlonsports.com/college-football/big-ten-coaches-talk-anonymously-about-conference-foes-2019 What other coaches had to say about the Hoosiers: "You hate playing this team. They're always competitive; they're always fighting back and staying in games even when they're down." "They've been decent offensively, and they can scare you with their tempo if your guys aren't locked in." "They've got some nice young backs and a quarterback (Peyton Ramsey) that can really give them a chance. They're changing OCs, and the guy from Fresno (Kalen DeBoer) should change some things up." "They've had trouble finding the right QB to build a program around. A lot of us thought the other QB, Michael Penix Jr., could be that guy, but he tore his ACL. He was probably their best talent at the position." "Defensively they're giving up too many points. They're bad against big plays; you can take the top off on them. The line loses a lot. It's going be a tough year for Tom Allen, but he's sort of a magician at finding good defenses with bad rosters." "Being in the Big Ten East doesn't help them at all when you're trying to build from scratch. It's why they've been stuck right at five wins." "Allen is highly respected and really well connected in the state. He's doing a great job recruiting in state, even against Purdue, who really has it going. And it's not an easy place to recruit top-level guys to. It's just not a program with an identity when you get outside of that state. It's a basketball school."

    According to Gerry, we look like any other Indiana team he has seen in the past. Hopefully he's wrong and we can shock some people.

    We can't do all the work for you man!! lol but not really...Ramsey is the starter going into the season, we've had a good back to back recruiting classes, and strength and conditioning staff have been doing a great job of getting the team ready.

    It has been said before but it's worth repeating; coach Ballou and Dr. Rhea have been doing a great job getting these players in top physical condition. Bedford mentions coming in at 260lbs and now being 305-310lbs! And as we can see, Williams is on campus now.

    (2020) CB Christopher Keys to IU

    Only other offer was from Jackson State. He is from a small town in Mississippi so that may have something to do with it. Hoping we just found a diamond in the rough!

    Beer, wine at football games

    It was only a matter of time! Hopefully this will help reduce the number of fans leaving the game at half time.

    (2020) WR Rashawn Williams to IU

    As some have mentioned, huge pickup for the class! but let's hope we have a good season and he stay committed until signing day!

    2019 April Evaluation Period

    I heard Romeo hooked up with iugradman's girl and that's why he's so bitter...
  15. From what I've read, it sounds like Ramsey is QB1...Penix is still no contact and I don't think he will be ready until the fall and Tuttle has been with the second team mostly. Need to remember that Tuttle has zero game experience at this level and he spent all of last season in Utah basically as the 3rd string QB. Also, from what I've read he needs to improve his decision making.
