    How long a leash on Penix?

    I won't entirely disagree, but we've really only seen him in 3 total halves? Prior to the Penix injury last season, he only really played in mop up duty right? The Wisconsin game was his first college start, and then he played nearly half if not more of the bowl game with a separated shoulder after nearly a full month break of very limited practice. His stats from the Wisconsin game don't jump off the page, but he made some really nice throws in that game and would have had 1 more TD if not for an inexcusable wide open drop by Marshall. Add in all the reps he got with the first string in the spring and I'm starting to be more confident we'd be in better shape with him in there.

    Uhh...wut? I'm not sure which part you're going after here. If you're saying there are far better IU connected folks to run an NIL collective, much like the HH guys have set up, then yeah I'll agree with you. If you took my post as suggesting that people will venmo these guys money to funnel to recruits while they interact with them....that's not what I was saying. My point was that they're now in a position of connecting players with NIL opportunities. Any interaction with a recruit should be cut off simply b/c it could be perceived as some sort of booster/under the table $$ moment. Maybe not, but if I'm a rival school, in this case Illinois, I'm all over this trying to pin something on these guys and their NIL collective to get IU in trouble for recruiting violations.

    What's unfortunate is the whole NIL collective thing they are doing could actually be extremely beneficial to Indiana. I don't know much about NIL stuff, but I'd be shocked if it's okay to start getting incoming recruits involved in that. So, beyond the creepiness of how they interact with recruits, they especially need to cut that $hit out if it's going to land us in hot water b/c of their NIL efforts.

    Game Thread: 9/18 vs. Cincinnati - Noon - ESPN

    Agreed, I just wish there was a 21-25, 312 yards, 3 TDS performance mixed in there against Idaho.

    Sparty is way better, Michigan is way better, PSU is way better…Maryland and Rutgers are better. Minnesota and Purdue aren’t going to be easy. 6-6 currently seems like a pretty daunting task.

    Game Thread: 9/18 vs. Cincinnati - Noon - ESPN

    I've got a bad feeling about this one. Any other time, losing to a top 10 team at home wouldn't be much to worry about. But it just feels like this game could make or break our season. If it's a hell of a game and we lose, I won't lose hope for the season yet. But if it ends up something like 35-16, with a tricky away game next week before heading to PSU.....oh boy.

    21-22 Men’s IUBB Schedule

    Anything less than 20-11 here would be disappointing to me. I'll go with 22-9. That stretch from January 13th through 23rd feels like it will be pivotal.

    College Football Thread

    Yeah, I saw that too. I was only wondering if there would be any available through our ticket office before going to any after market sites. But that was also what my follow up question was about...what section will IU fans be concentrated in if I have to go the stubhub route? I had also emailed our ticket office and they've already responded saying they don't have any tickets available and to contact the WKU ticket office. So I'm not sure if IU got an allotment that is already sold out of if we didn't get an allotment at all.

    College Football Thread

    Speaking of sold out games, it appears the game at WKU is also sold out. I assume IU was allotted a portion of away tickets. Does anyone know if those are also already gone? I can't find anything on our site about where to buy tickets for any away games. Follow up question - if our our away allotment is gone, does anyone know what section the IU crowd is supposed to be concentrated in?

    That was embarrassing. we’ll see what the culture of this program really is. If it’s truly changed we’ll take this in the chin move on and come back way better. Cincy game is the season. If we lay an egg there my expectations go from high level bowl game to maybe no bowl at all.

    2021 IU Football Tickets

    Hah…none taken as I thought the same thing!

    2021 IU Football Tickets

    No idea where to put this, but were there ever any away tickets that our ticket office put up for sale for the WKU game? I can't find anything on our site about buying tickets for away games, and WKU's site would indicate its sold out. Wondering if the away allotment has already been sold as well?

    (2022) DB Dasan McCullough to INDIANA

    Id normally be of a similar mindset. This young man seems to be in a particularly unique scenario. I may be wrong but didn’t he go to high school in Kansas City up until this year? So he may not be as close to friends in Btown as a typical senior in high school. And he’s only heading across town, where he’ll be with his dad and one of his brothers, can live at home if he wants and at any time head back across town to do high school things, minus actually being a student. All while getting to know the coaches, future teammates, defensive schemes, and take advantage of a college strength program. I can see both sides on this one.

    (2022) - CG Jalen Hood-Schifino to INDIANA

    Listening to his opening press conference, I thought this same thing, but also that his personality might go even farther with the parents, which could be even more important. On a similar note, the guy could have a serious side hustle recording ASMR videos.
