    Video Ads

    Thanks Martin:  I wonder if my chrome settings changed from something.  I know I had it set to not play anything automatically.  I never thought about going back in and checking those!  Even we computer geeks learn something all the time. Believe it or not in my real job I am a Google Certified Trainer!  I am supposed to know all about that crap.  :)

    Video Ads

    Chrome primarily, but the same thing happens in IE.  It is only when particular ads with video are rotated to run.  Doesn't happen all the time, but then all of a sudden all hear stuff coming out of my speaker, and it is an ad on this site.

    Gary Andersen to Oregon State

    Alvarez is coming back, because he doesn't think anyone else can coach as well as he can.  (He may be right.)

    Gary Andersen to Oregon State

    The news in WI is reporting that the move had a lot to do with Anderson wanting to get closer to "home".  I am assuming he still has relatives in the upper west.   Seems like a strange move, but I am sure there are many factors that went into the decision.

    Going to be a long season

    I have not seen with this any IU team the last couple of years.  What we got during the early season was the same we had at the end.

    Selfishness in Basketball

    The only thing I would disagree with the original post is about Calipari.  This years team is playing together, but only about one out of three do so.  Remember how a couple of years ago UK fans were screaming for his head, when they didn't make the tournament?  And every year they have been predicted to win the whole thing, and when they have lost (at least the games I have seen) it has been because the superstars got selfish.

    Going to be a long season

    The title for the thread is wrong.  It will not be a long season.  It will more than likely be a short season.  It will just feel like it is lasting forever.

    Deer / Animal Hunters

    Well the WI gun season was not treating me very well.  Sitting all day, Saturday I didn't see a deer.  Sat all day Sunday, and finally about 45 minutes before dark, a really nice doe decided to walk in range.  Got more venison in the freezer, now.  Get three more days hunting in Lawrence County, Indiana over Thanksgiving, and then back to bow hunting until the new year!

    Deer / Animal Hunters

    Just got back from 5 days in Missouri.  I didn't have any luck, but still a fun time.  WI gun season starts this weekend.  Get another 3 days hunting up here, then back home to Indiana for my annual Thanksgiving Weekend hunt.  Hopefully the Indiana Hunt will also be capped with another bucket victory.  Got my tickets today!

    IU vs PSU Game Thread

    Thank God I'm hunting this weekend.  Won't be able to yell in frustration, because I'll scare the deer away!  
  11. I think many of those that can't believe the guys were out at midnight the night before a scrimmage have forgotten what being an 18 - 20 year old was like.  Not excusing the accident, but that is a normal night for a college kid.   Also for those saying Crean has lost control of the team.  that is possible, but college athletes drinking has been going on for a whole lot longer than Crean has been coach at IU.  Not to mention it is a scrimmage for goodness sakes.  If they were out the night before a game.  I might feel differently, but it is a glorified practice.

    Stop with the fire Wilson nonsense

    Not to pick nits, but....  You and I have a different definition of being middle of the road.  I would agree that we were moving there, but I don't think we were there yet...  I do think Wilson can get us there, but IMO he has this year and next year to do it.  If he doesn't make a bowl next year.  I think he will be gone.
  13. Still not convinced our Defense can stop them, and certainly not convinced we have a QB that can take some stress off of the running game.   UM 38 IU  17

    Deer / Animal Hunters

    No hunting this weekend, so I took the kids to the range to practice for the gun season.. I also had to zero in the new shotgun I bought.  I think I'm ready for the gun season, now as well.   If you are looking for an accurate slug gun.  I would have to give a plug for Savage.  I bought the 220, and at 150 yards it is just as accurate as many of the rifles I own.  I did have one flyer out of the 10 shots though.  [attachment=1283:target.jpg]

    JaQuan Lyle off the board

    I get it, that he is a good basketball player.  However, from all of the things I have seen, I just don't want him here.   Apparently team chemistry was a big problem last year, and it is also apparently much better this year.  Why throw a wrench into the gears?   I just don't think he is worth the risk.

    Stop with the fire Wilson nonsense

    You should probably add, that he has also cleaned up his act, and hasn't been in any trouble since..

    Stop with the fire Wilson nonsense

    Personally, I wouldn't mind.  I like Coach Wilson.  I just don't think it will go that far.

    Stop with the fire Wilson nonsense

    Part of me agrees, but I don't don't see him getting two more seasons.  Unless you are counting this season as number 1.  If so, I agree with you.   I think next year is his make or break.  He will either be here for a good long time, or he will be done at the end of the 2015.

    Fed up.

    It was a great year to be a Senior!!  :)

    Stop with the fire Wilson nonsense

    The futility builds and builds.  BGSU was a shock, then it was followed with the upset of Missouri.  So not much of a chance to build up angst. In the last two weeks, we lost the 1st and 2nd Team QB, lost two games by large margins, have shown that our offense is now going to be as bad as the defense; thereby cementing in everyone's minds that it will take divine intervention for us to even finish with the same record as last year.   I can understand why the thread is coming out now.  The reality of the season has hit home.

    Stop with the fire Wilson nonsense

    Upset we lost.  Heck no.  I even predicted a blow out.  But that doesn't mean I am not disgusted by the absolute lack of defense in the 2nd half.  The way the season looks like it might turn out, we appear to be on track for a significantly worse record than last year.  We can possibly get to 5 wins, but that is going to depend on beating Michigan (never easy for us in the Big House) and beating Purdue.  Purdue is looking a lot better than last year, so that may be a tall order. That being said. I'm still not ready to give up on Coach Wilson.  He came into a crap storm with an awful program, and I do believe is slowly but surely turning things around.

    Stop with the fire Wilson nonsense

    All of us want IU to succeed on the Field, Court, and in the Classroom.  Like many I get tired of all the negativity, but let's be honest there hasn't been a whole lot to be positive about on the football field and on the basketball court, for a long time.  Personally, I think Coach Wilson, gets next year, to prove he can have a winning season, and I think Coach Crean gets this season to show something. I am hoping like hell that both succeed.
