IUFB Offseason Updates

Recommended Posts

Looking at the fall roster... I believe all the FR made it to campus. Still bummed about Minor not working out. I would like to know what happened there. 

Our safeties are still somewhat young.. but my goodness Mathews, Fitz, Jones, and Burgess is a stable we've never had.

I know there’s no real reason to be overly optimistic about this season but is anyone else just crazy excited to see some IU football again?!?!? Maybe it’s just because I’ll be in the student section for the first time this year but I know I am!

Whitner is not on campus. Should hear soon. Sounds like he will make it but some items to finish off. Brown is on campus

I get overly optimistic and excited about IUFB every year and have done so basically my entire life. It is a sickness and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy, but I love IU and IUFB. I am waiting for the year where we shock the world and do something amazing. It probably will never happen, but when it does I will be the happiest guy in the world.

If you are in the student section, it will be a fun experience and enjoy it while you can!

Hmm interesting because he's listed on the roster.

I’m just reporting what Tom Allen said this morning. Said everything looks good for Whitner but he’s not on campus yet

I haven’t followed much IUFB offseason news. What’s the QB situation looking like at this point? Is Ramsey the likely #1 going into the season? Has there been an update on Penix’s knee? How’s Tuttle looked?

I'm not a Gerry fan either. I also took his comments as negative but being the politician he is, he slid in an almost under the breath remark that IU does have more talent this year. Same ole, same ole but they do have more talent....  what a snake. (or snake oil salesman).

This is a tough season and we will need to surprise a team or two to make a bowl. Both lines and the QB play will make the difference.

Yes, I'm excited for the year, GO HOOSIERS!

DiNardo’s assessment of the IU roster was spot on last year. He may be a ****** but that doesn’t make him wrong.

Hahahahahahahahahaha

Penix is full go. Ramsey is returning starter. Tuttle has looked good and rusty  at times as he had to sit out end of spring and I believe most of may and June due to undisclosed illness. I’d say it was mono. As he did look skinnier but looks good now. It is a QB competition and there is no timeline set for a starter to be named. My guess is Ramsey gets start for ball state and other guys get rotation. All three had a good day today from interviews and what I heard from my cousin.

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."
