IUFB Offseason Updates

Nope he’s already turned in transcripts and everything. Just waiting to hear back from the school is what I’ve heard. And I believe he could be eligible immediately...given how transfers have panned out the past year and how many kids were granted immediate eligibility citing coaching changes or stuff like that 

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.

I mean I never stated anything on his game I just answered someone’s question on his eligibility. And right now I believe he wouldn’t be immediately eligible given rules. However there are waivers that can be processed and appeals which given the latest landscape....he would be given the thumbs up. Going off his HS film there is potential.....idk what type of player he is anymore, but he fills a need if we can’t find another WR for this class.....I’m willing to give him a chance before writing him off and comparing him to another player.

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.

According to Matthew Weaver, DaQuon Green is transferring to Murray State. There was interest in IU but who knows what things may have looked like in the background. 

Yeah I haven’t heard anything in particular, but ik the coaches were interested and highly involved in trying to get him here for a fresh start....if I had to guess this will be chalked up to grades if I had to say.

Too bad he couldn't behave himself. Could've used him last season. 

 

 

This school was featured on Next Chance U on Netflix last year .

Reese Taylor moving back to defense, cornerback it sounds like. Just get the kid on the dang field. 

Cam Jones moving from the "husky" LB spot to Safety.

Tuttle still hasn't been cleared by the NCAA to play this season. When is the deadline for that? (or is there?)

Their coach also just got canned for some brutal text messages to a player. 

(That may or may not have actually happened, but there’s surely a long list or fireable offences from that guy)

Yeah I saw that this last week. Coach Brown seemed to be given every opportunity in the world but always seemed to totally screw up every chance. Probably could have been fired for any other thing he did. Plus I don’t think either year he was there they were particularly good. Funny thing is during the show he said he had signed to play at IU as a player but got into some trouble and got his scholarship yanked before even going. I never found any hard proof of that but it was an interesting tie.

Seemed like a coach Knight type figure who would hold everyone else accountable but themselves

Zach's article in the Indy Star really demonstrates how ridiculous the larger programs get preference. OSU already has Fields transfer approved even though their request came in much later than IU & Tuttle. That to me is sickening.

So Kansas is getting Rick Ross to perform at their spring game. Kansas, one of the worst football programs in the country. This is the kind of thing IU athletics needs to do. We don't have the "cool" factor that recruits like.

Getting a guy to perform that's been on probation for kidnapping, aggravated assault,  and possession is a "cool" factor?

Maybe not that specific guy but the overall point is valid. Spice things up. Modernize. Generate buzz and fan interest.

He's coming to the school to perform, not give life advice to the football team. College kids don't care about his legal issues, they just like his music. And my comment was more about the larger movement by some schools to modernize college athletics and bring them in line with modern day culture, a movement that IU is lagging way behind in.
