Fire or ‘Way to Go!’ Tom Allen?

I’ll be plenty bummed if we don’t beat Purdue, especially since we should. I also just recognize that there’s a very real chance they’ll be playing for win 6 at home against us. Would be amazing if that is the case and we shut them down!

I had both teams going into the game 5-6 for a chance to go bowling. If pu is 5-6 I’d be a bit more scared because Big Ten. Whatever the records though, I’d love to go in there and beat the absolute piss out of them.

You think they are going to win at Wisconsin?

Crazier things have happened, and this Purdue team is underperforming way to far from the norm. As much trash as I've talked, it's not like Jeff Brohm is a bad coach. I'm just not ruling it out, but I agree it's highly unlikely.

I haven’t read many posts in this thread so jumping in super late and uninformed, BUT want to say that Allen and the guys have had a great season and despite my objection to Glass’ approach to his hire, I’m really proud of what they’ve done this year.

Had they not blown the MSU game this could go down as one of the best seasons ever

If they can win the next two with no running game and a walk on QB, that’s not a miracle, that’s a deal with the devil

Man, we’d be having unrealistic optimism run rampant if we beat a ranked MSU. And we’d be ranked. Wild to imagine.

The Allen to FSU talk is comical. Florida St won a national title just five years ago and just paid $20 million to remove a mistake. A good hire can turn that program quickly. It wont be Allen.

IDK seems like it might be like IU circa 2008. Where there’s stuff behind the scenes making it difficult to succeed.

In my opinion CTA isn't going anywhere.  It appears that he's all in with Hoosier football.  I think the only job I could see him taking would be something like Notre Dame, and that ain't gonna happen.  I honestly think he's home. 

Man, I sure hope I don't eat crow on this.

I think you are right and he stays put. 

There are enough examples of coaches "reaching for the brass ring" and making moves that in retrospect look foolish (Rich Rod from his alma mater West Virginia to Mich, for example) but I will be shocked if Allen jumps to the flavor of the week job. 

If IU does well again next year, there will be suitors though.

I agree with this but also believe he’ll need to be paid. I think he likes the underdog role with a constant “fight” mentality. However, if, like just about anyone, he feels dissed by being low balled I could see him seeking a different job.

Maybe I'm naive but even if this year isn't a fluke and our beloved Hoosiers perform this type of season on a constant basis I still think he stays put.  He seems to be all about Hoosier football and here to prove something.

He will also have much greater job security at IU. Winning 7 games a year will get him a statue outside Memorial Stadium. But IU is going to have to give him adequate resources. No more nickel and diming. Pay up to keep DeBoer.

He’s the most successful IU coach since before my dad was born. You aren’t wrong. If he wins us a bowl game getting 9 or 10 wins he might already have earned a statue

DeBoer is turning out to be a great hire that's for sure.  DeBoer is getting paid.  Something like 800k a year that could end up being $1 million per year with bonuses.  I believe it's the highest paid OC in the history of the program.  So hats off to Glass as well because he ponied up some cash. 

And I'd be fine if DeBoer goes on to pursue bigger and better things. He's earned it.  It'll just mean that CTA will have to make another hire at OC.  That's part of being successful at this kind of job.  And with the precedent set I don't think money will be an issue.
