South End Zone Expansion/Stadium Renovation Thread

I wasn't going to say anything because people have already covered it....

 

but it here I go. 

 

You realize allen isn't running the offense. Do you watch anything related to IU athletics or iu football. Because Debord wants to be quicker than Wilson was last year. He wants the ball snapped 10-15 seconds after the ball is placed or set or even quicker. Wilson this past year to on average almost 20 seconds. Oh btw iu has been growing in the receuiting circuit for the past 3-5 years. Also most kids you see in the NFL or excelling are 3* kids which iu gets and develops in their "menard's" weight room. The new buildings and rooms will only help with recruiting which will bring in the 5 and 4 stars you want. It's also statistically proven that 5* and 4* do not make a huge dent on on field performances. I also created a formula and wrote my my senior econometrics paper on this topic and actually presented it to ADs and the NCAA panel just as my friend flew to Houston to present his findings on drunk driving and age. Many of these things can be proven with formulas and equations. And schools are actually focusing in on 3* players or lower and working to develope players (which is what these donors are doing) investing in youth and lastly Athletics in all actuality. So your asinine argument that these buildings will not help are fully opinionated and actually false. Recruits are caring more and more about facilities and what the behind the scenes can offer rather than W-L. Yes that is a variable, but like I said they want facilities and they want to train in an NFL caliber facility which iu has and will continue to have. So please if you don't like what iu is doing and continuing to do with IU football please do not contribute, please do not buy a ticket and do not cheer when they make another bowl this upcoming season, remember this conversation as you are a doubter and a hater on what iu is trying to build and create in Bloomington.

The guy is either a troll, as he continues to ignore the main points that everyone is making, or he seriously just does not understand football. I'm really not sure which is true, because he's completely wrong on basic aspects of our team like our offense, so who knows.

I am going to go with troll and or solely basketball fan who doesn't want IU football to succeed, especially after the why don't we give money to basketball, baseball or soccer programs. He must have missed all of he recent upgrades to those programs... Oh and not to mention the football addition is basically for all sports from my understanding lol

Back on topic...The nutrition aspect and the new dining area is a big thing in recruiting right now. The current Hoosier Room is buried underneath the west stands, so this new one will be a big plus for all the athletes:

"As part of the Excellence Academy, the Tobias Nutrition Center will be home to one of the premier nutrition facilities and dining spaces in all of college athletics.  The nearly 10,000 square foot space will provide a place to fuel the nearly 650 students who participate in IU's 24 varsity sports.  The main dining area will have seating available for 300 people with various table sizes and includes large windows to allow for natural light and magnificent views into Memorial Stadium.  Large televisions will be also scattered throughout the area. 

Lunch and dinner will be served five days a week with a daily breakfast oasis for students.  Service will be in a food station concept with stations including Italian, grill, homestyle, subs and wraps, large salad, fruit and soup bar.  Menu items will be prepared fresh on site by dining staff at each of these stations.  The breakfast oasis will be a morning fueling station for students with a variety of options to start the day.  Two large beverage stations will be installed including a water bottle filling station as new electronic menu boards will display what is available each day."

This family also donated to have a new donor hospitality area made at court level at Assembly Hall.

And look what we beat. FIU won 4 games. Ball State won 4 games. Michigan State won 3 games. Maryland won 6 games. Rutgers won 2 games. Purdue won 3 games. We won 6 games and those teams had a combined record of 22-51? There is a reason we won 6.

Okay, this year:
Virginia; last year 2 wins
FIU; 4 wins
GA Southern; 5 wins
Michigan State; 3 wins
Maryland; 6 games
Illinois; 3 wins
Rutgers; 2 wins
Purdue; 3 wins

That's 8 games where it is very likely IU will be favored and you'll be surprised if they win 5?

With the turnover on staff and not having a stud QB I'm preparing for a 4-5 win season myself. But it takes time to build something. 

4 is expecting too little, 9 is probably too much. It's really hard to say if we're a bowl team without knowing the QB situation. Rest of the team is a 6 win team with competent QB play.

We made it last year with pretty much the same QB situation though.

We lost some stud coaches that can't be discounted

Thats why I'm optimistic. Our defense carried us last season while our offense was the drizzling s***s, I'm hoping another year under Allen's system and our relatively weak schedule can get us there. 6-7 wouldnt shock me either.

The main reason we even went to a bowl last year was because of Allen's defense. Our scoring offense was 88th, and our red zone offense was in the 120s. If we have even a functioning offense, we will win at least six. The team looked better prepared in the bowl game than I've seen them look in a while. There is far too much talent to only win 4 games.

There's was far too much talent for our basketball team to miss the tourney to. Coaching matters and while Allen might still be here we lost quite a few quality coaches we have new guys with a new system there can easily be growing pains with that.

The last remnants of the chain-link fence will soon be gone as that will be where the concourses connect. The nearest portion of the photo is where the loading dock will be, which will thankfully now be much more hidden:

I have us at 7 tbh. We always lose 2-3 we shouldn't. We should be bowling though. If the QB situation is any better this season no reason we shouldn't be at 8 wins imo.

Who all watched the Spring Game?  For the 1st half it looked like the same ole Lagow.  Huge arm with sporadic accuracy.  In the 2nd half, he really looked like he was a making a concentrated effort to give what the defense would take him.  He would often take the check down or feed a short pass to the running back.  If the new OC can get Lagow to just manage the game better and get him willing to accept the fact that huge pass play attempts do not work for him overall in the long run (see here http://puntjohnpunt.com/2017/02/22/richard-lagow-and-the-interception-machine/ and here http://puntjohnpunt.com/2017/04/04/chart-week-part-2-passing-offense/), then I look for better overall results.  Allen wants to win games by moving the chains and playing great D. Based on what Lagow was willing to do in the 2nd half of the Spring game, Allen's desired winning style seems at least more possible than maybe some others might think.
