    Good grief…we’d honestly have more luck if Judge Smails was doing our recruiting…
  3. Let’s just hope that Bruce Pearl is still disgruntled.

    General Coach Candidate News

    Reviving my tradition in these threads to throw Ben McCollum’s name back in the candidate hat :). He’s gone 82-12 since Woody’s first season and won another D2 national championship.

    IUBB @ Illinois - Saturday, 01.27.24 @ 3:00 ET on Fox TV

    You cannot be a good basketball team in today’s game without reliable perimeter shooters. You can write off every season in November if your roster can’t shoot.

    How ‘effing hard is it for Indiana to be good at basketball? This program has fielded one legitimately good team in the last 20 years (2012-13). Is a top 15-20 team, at minimum, on a near annual basis so difficult for a program with all of the resources anyone could possibly need? We are literally paying players at this point to come here and we still suck.

    Refs just gave us a chance to now win.
  10. There’s supposed to be a massive amount of flooding in and around central New Jersey today. The governor declared a state of emergency beginning at 5 pm. Any word on if the game may be canceled/postponed?

    I thought so too! Did they move the game time up?

    They Fired Tom Allen!

    Despite the team showing flashes of competency after Bell was let go, I think this was the right move. There had been too many boneheaded decisions the last few years and the momentum around the program completely bottomed out. I’ll say this though, Tom Allen in my opinion was the best IUFB coach in 40 years. Kevin Wilson made us look like an actual football team, but Allen took that foundation and started winning. In 2009 our secondary was our baseball team, and for a bit, Allen made us competent defensively for the first time in forever. Give Allen’s credit to the DeBoer and Womack all you want, he was the one hiring and winning with them. He also loved the program in a way we hadn’t seen since Hep was here. My collegiate tenure at IU was all four years of Bill Lynch and (near) concluded with losing to Wisconsin 83-20. Coach Allen beat Wisconsin twice. Indiana has beaten Michigan twice since 1968. Coach Allen owns one of those victories. Nebraska may not be what they used to, but Coach Allen went into Lincoln in front of 90,000 fans and won. And Covid excuses be damned, there was one week in my life where I checked the AP poll and saw IU in the top 10. If there was an expanded playoff that year we would have made it. I get that Coach Allen wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea and the LEO schtick got old. With the transfer portal now available his Tampa recruiting pipeline also didn’t carry the weight it used to. I agree it’s time for a change and this program is at a crossroads. But Tom Allen gave us a few years of very competitive and exciting football, and that should not be lost in all of the “thank the Lord he’s gone” posts that are about to fill this thread for the next 24 hours.
