    Game Thread: vs. Ohio State - 7:30pm - ABC

    A losing mentality...yeah...that it is. I'm not surprised that IU lost some or all of those games. Sure, hoping to win them and even predicted that IU would win 3 of the 5. But, after seeing and following IU for over 50 years and seeing them lose to OSU and MIchigan etc. over and over and over again...and living through Pont and Corso for crying out loud...a losing mentality? No. Tradition? Hmm...maybe...but hopefully not. What is your solution? Haven't heard the way out of this. By the way, if you couldn't tell that most of my post was...ahem...not made in a too serious of an attitude. Lighten up Gladys. It's only a game. Kind of like Monopoly. Except that IU isn't holding the blues and greens or yellows or reds...

    Oh, woe is Indiana football. Losing to 5 top 11 teams in the nation...what has become of IU? Indiana football is in a position of one foot in a rut and one foot on a banana peel. We really do need a quarterback that can complete 60% of his passes and is mobile and can think and can avoid costly errors. We need an offensive line that can hold their own against the competition. We need depth at all the positions. We need an OC that can best utilize what we have. I am not going to throw away this team and this season because of some injuries and an awfully stacked schedule. I like Tom Allen. He will do well at IU...and has already. This season is not a bust even though our won/loss record looks and is awful. If any of you think that IU should be better than this without Penix and with this OL and this OC, then you are fooling yourselves. But therein lies the rub. Why did Tom Allen get this OC? Why did Tom Allen settle for an injured Penix and a backup like Tuttle and this OL? Why did this OC go to the unimaginative game theory of run run pass punt? (Against OSU, the first two possessions looked better.) Maybe, just maybe IU needs some sharp recruiters like they have, apparently, just gotten over on the basketball side. Maybe they need a coach emeritus like they got from OSU on the basketball side. Coach Woodson may just pull the rabbit out of his hat. I think that over time, Tom Allen will too. (I did like the fact that IU tried the 3rd and 4th string QBs...why not? Game was already over.) Except for two things: demographics and money. Those make up the rut that one foot of the IU football program is in. The Ohio State program has no other competition in that more populous state. That fact funnels more recruits and money to OSU than IU and Purdoo combined. The only way to beat that is to tilt the TV, B1G money more toward IU. Yeah, right. And all you athletes, you gotta have waaaay more offspring that will help quadruple the population and recruits in Indiana. So, my solution is more sex. Go forth for the good of Ol' IU! Get hoppin'. Just do it. PS Maybe Indiana could annex Chicago, Louisville, Dayton, and Milwaukee to increase our population. No? Nevermind. Just get out there and procreate! And cheer on IU.

    Well, it could be worse. Just remember...IU is so much better than Purdeau.

    Just wait until basketball season! Sorry, had to say it.

    Tuttle walked off under his own power. Yay! Offensive play calling is better. Execution is better. Keep it going to Hendershot and 0! Good luck IU!
  9. Is this game a trap game for OSU? They play Penn St. next week. So, maybe...but maybe not. Who gets trapped after a bye week. OSU? Is Tuttle, who cannot make a big play or look sharp, going to have a breakout career day? Why not? Is IU going to cut OSU's pathetic defense with the institution of an interesting and original offense game plan? Well, IU could unleash the tight end. IU could put together more than 6 good plays. IU could score consistently when in the red zone. Why not? IU has traditionally played somewhat decently until midway through the 2nd half against OSU. IU is deeper so HCTA says. IU could stay with OSU until the final whistle...why not? IU could value the football. No turnovers lost today. No pick 6's. No big plays by OSU. And since there is no way for me to win at this picking the score week after week...and since I would rather pick IU to beat OSU and have that happen than anything else...well almost anything else...today... It ain't over until we say it's over!!! OSU 20 Indiana 23 (Between you and me...it might just be a trap game: IU keeps looking forward to beating purdooo!)

    Congratulations to all those prognosticators that have clearly divined that IU is not a top 10 team. But, "... the moving finger having writ, moves on..." (quoting the original OK)...this week I foresee that Indiana football will not lose.

    After losing to 3 top 10 teams...I'm beginning to realize that IU is not a top 10 team. Maybe Tom Allen needs to change the flavor of his gum.

    IU is two possessions from winning. Oh ye of little faith....

    So Chucky, did I say it was good to hear your negativity this early in the game? Go IU!
