    I'm still with Indiana. I'm in the 95% range. I have not heard anything, the same or different since last week. If anything I think the IU football win helped. That is the atmosphere he wants to be around I'm sure. Remember he doesn't want to be an engineer, he wants to study Physics. He has no problems doing that here at IU. Tell the guys at HSN to settle down, relax and get ready for another great Hoosiers weekend. Cheers!!

    Welcome abroad. Just listen to the people who know what's going on and you'll be fine. I like two things about Friday. I eat a Strom from Nicks for lunch and TK picking IU.

    (2021) PF Trey Kaufman to Purdue

    I'm thinking this will be something nobody saw coming. I'm predicting he becomes an Indiana State Sycamore, then changes his name to Tree Kaufman. Then, after packing up his trunk and taking root in Terre Haute, he'll suffer a back injury, but will miss only five games after getting some excellent lumber therapy. Eventually, he will feel his game has been spruced up enough after a year, and will branch out and leave for the NBA. It won't be a poplar move, so irate IU fans will bark about it, and accuse him of treeson. When asked what went wrong in the recruiting process, Archie will say: "I'm stumped." Yes -- I know. This is a sappy story.

    None of the staff know of the decision yet. I'm going off of everything we know, he has been to IU more than any other place, he wants to stay close to home, his mom went to IU, he wanted to commit earlier in the summer and the staffs feels like he is coming. I'm guessing Purdue has the same feelings for their reasons. I would be surprised if he ends up at Purdue but not shocked. One day out we're still in good shape.

    Sometimes you gather all of the information and make an educated decision. But if the information you are collecting is false info then it's tough to tell the whole story. If Indiana has been out for the last year then that is some shady stuff there. But I will admit I missed this one big time. But I will say the staff still thought they had him as of earlier this week. Move on to the next one. But I really don't like how Indiana was treated in this recruitment. Just morning ramblings.

    Welcome! Glad you’re here. Tons of good resources here. Old Fart Class of ‘66 is our resident hipster. Just turned 19, developed an algorithm to comb the entire World Wide Web for recruiting updates. USPS is an algorithm, I think. When I got here I thought he was a know-it-all. Some years later I realize he does, in fact, know it all. And Stuhoo is at least reliably upbeat while otherwise providing little to no value. Chris007 has proven several times to have access to info others don’t. And he’s a good dude, to boot.

    I don't know if it was on here or not but I definitely was in on some Billy D news. I know for sure Quinn talked to him and money was discussed. But it's correct, I believe I got the info about Schilling, & Marshall before it came out. I will say not having Schilling here makes my job of getting info a little harder.

    Since it's football season, I'll post it here. This will surely bring a smile to your face. Purdue Pete arrested at McDonald's for alleged battery, disorderly conduct Joseph Desmond, a senior in the Krannert School of Management and Purdue Pete, was arrested on multiple charges at McDonald’s at 605 W. Stadium Ave around 2 a.m. Oct. 11, according to a probable cause affidavit filed today. The WLPD officer was advised that two men were allegedly fighting in the parking lot, and one hit the other with his vehicle. A Purdue University Police Department officer reportedly had Desmond in handcuffs and was speaking to the alleged victim, who the officer reported had sustained multiple injuries. A McDonald’s employee identified Desmond as the driver of the vehicle that struck the victim, which Desmond later denied, according to the affidavit. The officer reported that he “was immediately met by the overwhelming odor of an alcoholic beverage” on Desmond’s breath, and that the student reportedly had watery eyes and slurred speech. Desmond said he had walked to the restaurant from his apartment on Littleton Street and thought he was at a McDonald's in Chauncey Village, per the affidavit. Desmond said he “walked to McDonald's to get a burger because he was drunk,” according to court documents, and claimed the victim was causing issues at the drive-through window. He said the victim began pushing him, but was reportedly unable to explain the situation further. Desmond had red marks on either side of his neck, which were recorded by the officer. Desmond allegedly claimed to have been golfing earlier in the day and to be drunk all night. The reporting having consumed seven beers while golfing and then going to Harry’s Chocolate Shop around 11 p.m. where he said he had approximately four mixed drinks, although he couldn’t remember exactly how much he had had to drink, documents state. The officer took Desmond to WLPD headquarters where he subjected him to three separate sobriety tests, all of which he failed. “I had probable cause to believe (Desmond) had operated a vehicle while intoxicated,” the officer wrote in the report, adding that Desmond’s BAC was 0.172. “Purdue Athletics is aware of the situation regarding Joseph Desmond and will address the situation accordingly as the process unfolds,” said Purdue Athletics spokesperson Kassidie Blackstock in an email on Tuesday. She added that the Spirit Squad, which includes Purdue Pete mascots, is on hiatus because of the complications with the pandemic. Desmond was charged with battery resulting in bodily injury, operating a vehicle while intoxicated endangering a person, disorderly conduct, a BAC of .15 or more and resisting law enforcement, according to court records.

    There's always another kid. I would love to get Kaufman, but if the fit isn't right for him, then it's time to move on. I hope he, and all kids really, find the right situation. I don't think it's ever appropriate to be angry at kids because they don't do what we want them to. If he chooses IU, fantastic! If not, I wish him nothing but the best. All kids deserve at least that from the adults in the room.

    Have seen Reed several times. I’ll write something more complete at some other point. Bottom line: big, physical, tough low post hammer. Big body, pretty good athlete. Has a nasty streak. Like this offer a good bit.

    From what I understand from practice, his work ethic is off the charts. He stays after practice every day to work on his game. He's been shooting it really well also. I think his D has to get better and learn the speed of the college game.

    IMO if you are eating a strom with a knife and fork, then your doing it wrong. Back to TK he said he wants to win an NCAA Championship so we now know PU is out.

    It’s quite a leap to insinuate he might not be the greatest kid. Who knows if he even knew it was Archie’s birthday? All indications are that he did his due diligence, is a smart kid and there were zero rumors of him looking for anything illegal $$$. I will be disappointed if he goes to PU but disagree with the, sour grapes in my opinion, sentiments that he all the sudden is not a great kid, is selfish, wont play with x/y/z, etc.

    Game Thread: 10/24 vs PSU 3:30 FS1

    Indiana loses that game 50 of the last 51 years. We almost Indiana’d it again, but Penn State really blew it not taking a knee with 1:42 left. Penix looks like he came into form on the game tying drive. Let’s hope this continues, because the offense was offensive for most of today. Huge win and congrats to the team and CTA for pulling it out. Btw, Penix made the plane before the bottom of the ball touched out of bounds. Hoosier goggles be damned!

    Anyone else worried about us celebrating the PSU win for a little too long? Coach Allen has been on TV yesterday and today talking about the win, it's Thursday. Just seems like we need to focus on Rutgers. Hope I'm wrong

    Galloway is going to play, maybe even start a couple of games. His defense, IQ everything you mentioned is going to get him minutes.

    And just think that Galloway is the freshman getting talked about the most in practice. Future looks bright down in Bloomington. I’m so glad those 2 ended up coming to IU.

    Couple of things to add to the breakdown in video #3, which, I agree, is very good. 1) Reed has been really well coached on the block. He has a drop step/counter action that is just textbook. He finishes easily over either shoulder with either hand. He keeps the ball high in traffic. And when he doesn’t see a double he is extremely decisive. 2) He’s still so young that there is a lot of projection here, but I wouldn’t be so sure that he’ll become a good pick and roll defender. He struggles to move laterally and really struggles to change direction. I saw 3 Chaminade games last year and he was in foul trouble in all of them. 3) Love his demeanor. Love it. He is a tough kid. The 1st video above shows him committing a hard foul on Caleb Love(UNC). I was at that game. He actually knocked Love down TWICE. And then just stood over Love and stared him down. How many HS sophomores have you seen try to physically intimidate McDonald’s All Americans? 4) He’s a high D1 kid on skill level and physicality alone, but if the athleticism and movement keep coming, he will be a load.

    Been able to digest this game overnight but wow that still does not feel real. Probably the top IUFB moment of my lifetime and even a top sporting moment in general. Two biggest takeaways from this game IMO: CTA is the perfect man to lead the Hoosiers: think we might’ve gotten a gem here especially considering Allen doesn’t seem like the type of guy to leave for a bigger brand. He’s about a personable guy as they get and it’s clear the players absolutely LOVE playing for him. You have to respect the hell out of that 2 point conversion attempt in overtime and my favorite part of it all was Allen yelling to his team after the game, “I’ve been mocked, I’ve been embarrassed, but IVE NEVER CARED!” Penix leads the team late: In the final minutes, Penix delivered when needed most. He had a few great throws to the sideline and the Hoosiers moved the ball well. He finished with the rushing touchdown and the two point conversion to send it to OT, the throwing TD in overtime, and the game winning 2 Point Conversion. Regardless of the rest of the game, that’s the kind of finish you want to see from your Quarterback who’s supposed to lead this team. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Losing Furst or Kaufman not a big deal. Losing both to Purdue. Unacceptable. Archie has to start winning games. Period. He has one Crean player left. NO MORE EXCUSES

    This just further reinforces how poorly the B1G has handled the season. If they'd been proactive and not dilly dallied around, they could have scheduled bye weeks to allow for such events and the possibility that such games could be made up in the bye weeks.

    I’ve been on this board since like 2014 and every big time recruit thread is literally the EXACT same roller coaster haha. 1 rumor about a priority recruit going to Purdue and like a quarter of the board is ready to give up on the program for the next decade. Gotta love it lmao.
