IU Football 2019 Recruiting Class

In the interview or press conference. I’m pretty sure that Allen said. “I know I have to hand over the defensive play calling, I will still have a hand in prep, but I need to become that coach who oversees all parts on game day and is there for every person on this team” something along those lines and then went in to acknowledge he knows he didn’t manage his time well and that time needs to be shared with the players, and not just the defensive players and scheming. So I’m pretty confident that after today’s interview we should hear from allen at some point saying he’s no longe DC and HC 

Could've been something more recent, last I remembered him saying was earlier in the offseason that he might turn over defensive responsibility to focus on other HC duties.

Yes that was in an interview with a radio station in Louisville I believe. This interview I’m talking about was his press conference today after the signing day stuff.

I like this, but again, I want to see it.  I want to see halftime adjustments, creative game plans, teams that don't commit mental mistake after mental mistake and stupid, brainless "fake tough guy" penalties.  I have very little interest in words from him or this program.  It's time to produce and do so with some good, solid fundamental coaching.

Yep, the talent has been elevated. Same needs to happen for the coaching. We should have been better than 5 wins this year. Coaching needs to improve or else some shakeups on the staff need to be made.

I will say as negative as I feel like I have been with the coaching, I never thought in a million years that Allen would bring in a top 35-40 recruiting class with 4 of the top 6 guys from Indiana. Just didn't see that happening in general at IU. He and his staff clearly have worked their butts off to convince kids to wear the crimson and cream even without the accoldates of being ranked/going to bowl games etc. Hopefully, this is the start of that.

Honestly, I'm not that surprised.  He's a Hoosier, an ex-IHSAA football player and an ex-HC at one of the most prominent high school football program in the state.  And of the IHSAA high school football coaches I've spoken to, they say they really like what they are seeing in Btown and enjoy his open door policy.  Bottom line, he's a character guy that relates.  And if, if, he succeeds at IU it's quite possible he doesn't ever leave IU.

Yeah, one of those school's fans seems to hate their team more than their own rivals do .

 

If you're talking about IU; we don't really have football rivals. I guess you could say Purdoo, but in football? Jes' barely.
