    Agreed, but no one knows exactly what this all means. All the article says is that Canada wanted a larger say/role in the decision making for his offensive staff and Allen wouldn't agree to it. To assume he wanted to "clean house" is doing so blind with no insight to the situation. No one with Matt Canada's resume is going to take a job where the HC says you don't have the authority to hire and fire your assistants. That's setting yourself up for failure and a very frustrating tenure knowing your assistants don't answer to you, they answer only to Allen. At the end of the day all this means is we're going to get an unproven "Yes" man OC with an underwhelming resume. Allen is and has always been in over his head, I don't know why anyone would expect different now.

    I think he'd take the NI job if offered. That would be a great opportunity for him. Hopefully the prospect of coming home and building his alma mater means enough to him to get him here but USC and Georgia would be tough to pass up. As much complaining as I've read about getting Canada back as our OC as I've seen, I haven't heard of one better candidate available so it'll be interesting how this shakes out. If Allen hires him as AHC/OC and pays him $1.5M a year that might be enough to get him here and keep him.

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    I don't know what point you're trying to make but I'll reiterate that I'd be excited to have him come to IU. That being said I'm still tempering my expectations. That doesn't mean I'm writing him off, rather the exact opposite..hence the excitement. Just because I brought up another instance when a transfer didn't work out doesn't mean I'm saying this will be more of the same.

    I think he's a product of bad luck, being coupled with bad HCs or in Durkin's case, a very good HC who was a head case. His offenses have done very well over the the years. He's an IU guy, which isn't required in my opinion but it's nice to have. I don't see anyone out there that we can actually get who would be better. Allen said he wants a guy who's called plays at the D1 level. Kingsbury is off the board and we're not getting Applewhite either who will make more money than Allen next season wherever he lands. Unless we go shopping for OCs from the MAC I don't know who else we can even get that would be a better hire than Canada.

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    He also basically sat out this year anyway only appearing in two games so it's unlikely they'll make him burn a full year of eligibility on top of his red shirt season this year. I'd be excited if he came to IU but I still want to temper my expectations....least we forget about the last former Florida WR commit we picked up via transfer in Marqui Hawkins. He wasn't a 4 star technically but was damn close with better offers than Green had coming out of high school; however, he didn't amount to anything while at IU.

    If you listen to the guys over at HSN, he should be on scholarship and is a first team all defensive team in conference. But no, he never has. Thought he was better than he’s shown this season though

    Lol. McBob. What happened to his game?

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    He's already on the staff. Why would promoting a guy who's already doing your recruiting for you help get new/better recruits? Bringing in a guy who has national credibility and recruiting ties increases the pipeline and adds another body who would have bandwidth to hit the road and get in front of kids we may not otherwise have the ability to recruit. It's not like Womack was getting job offers from other programs. Being one of the most thought of coaches on this staff??? I'm sure there's an ESPY for that.

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    Not a good move in my opinion. Allen seems to be quite a control freak and doesn't surround himself with anyone outside his inner circle who would have fresh ideas. He only wants guys he's worked with in the past. This doesn't help with recruiting, this doesn't bring talent to the coaching room. It's a status quo shell game and a huge gamble.

    Not sure what’s taking so long. Those guys come in and usually play well. Give em some minutes
  13. I'm on board with this line of thinking. I'll take the wait and see approach with Tuttle. We had a very talented QB transfer here last year only to have him not win the starting job and quit. My concern is that Tuttle couldn't beat out Jason Shelley who's also a freshmen for the QB2 spot and who also happens to be 5'11 and not very good but my optimistic theory on this is that they wanted to redshirt Tuttle because they currently utilize mostly RPOs and when Huntley graduates they would hand to ball over to Tuttle and change up their schemes....who knows...Hopefully this kid comes in with the right attitude and wins the starting role but if not stays engaged and committed to the team to wait his turn.
  14. Correct. Since he essentially sat out this season he can qualify for a waiver. I'm not sure how often those get rejected. I'm curious to know what Pennix thinks about all this. I have to imagine Tuttle is very talented but lets not forget he was QB3 at Utah when I'm sure the plan was to compete for the starting job.

    It’s official. DeRon Davis, who’s listed at 6’10, can’t dunk

    If you think for one second that this team will be better next year sans Morgan, Romeo and Fitzner than the rest of this team plus TJD, Brooks (assuming we can even get them) and Franklin you’re crazy

    The lack of basketball IQ on this team is staggering

    Phin can’t pick up that foul especially with how awful Durham has been handling the ball against this pressure. Gonna be a nerve wracking rest of the game if Al can’t take care of the ball better.

    IU at Michigan 11/17/18 4pm FS1

    Not so fun fact. IU has only won the 3rd quarter once all season which was against Maryland. The coaching staff needs to figure out a different halftime pep talk and second half strategy. I’m tired of seeing this team come out of halftime flat

    Need to step on the gas now. Throw the ball down the field. Stevie up the middle can be shelved for this drive.

    If #35 wraps up they are stopped dead. Kids today don’t know how to form tackle

    Maybe we try mixing it up a bit on first down

    It’s not always what you do but how you do it. He definitely sold it as an accident
