    Better hope we see the SEC and ACC follow suit sooner rather than later, otherwise Allen can kiss his Tampa pipeline goodbye.

    Bruiser Could Leave for UK?

    I’m less concerned with bringing in talent and more focused on how they develop when they get here. Our offense was abhorrent the last three years. Getting someone who can help Archie in that department is paramount.

    The NBA also had the benefit of finishing their season and not needing to start from scratch. They may get this season finished but I have a hard time seeing them have a normal 2020-21 season.

    Big Ten presidents vote 12-2 to cancel fall football, according to Detroit Free Press. Iowa and Nebraska were the two schools who voted to play. Expect an official announcement either later today or tomorrow.

    The business models of both college athletic departments and local economies are going to need to revamp after this.

    Spring football is incompatible with a regular fall 2021 season.

    Rumor now is college football for the fall will be called off nationwide within the week.

    Maybe this will get us back on track...(Warning - hyperbolic statements ahead for people to debate). 1) I’d rather see the season cancelled now than start 1-5 and then have it subsequently cancelled, which it will. We got screwed in the scheduling department and our AD/Purdue’s AD should’ve done more to get that game moved up. 2) This new paradigm will result in more blue chip juniors sitting out to prepare for the NFL. College basketball has its one and done problem and college football will begin to have a two and done problem. The NFL may need to adopt something, not quite a G-League, but something that’ll allow the Jadevean Clowneys of CFB to get paid to train their junior year. 3) College football as we once knew it is forever gone. MAC-level programs are realizing their payday asskicking games are too precarious of a business model to rely on. This is going to expedite the consolidation of the Power 5 conferences into a true minor league, while the rest of the G5 schools are either going to move to FCS/D2 or drop their programs. 4) P5 College football players at a minimum are going to start getting a healthy “stipend.” What was already common knowledge about each athletic department’s dependency on CFB revenue is now a bargaining chip for these players. Potential ramifications from this are unknown, but some sports are going to get cut at every school, and there will be a sh*t-fit debate about equity for women’s sports. My opinion on this, give players a choice when they come to school. Either you get paid or are on scholarship. Let the walk-ons deal with that play for pride mantra. 5) Big coaching salaries have reached bubble status and so has the college football arms race, unless P5 college football breaks away and transforms into a true minor league. 6) No matter how this all plays out, Jim Harbaugh will never beat Ohio State.

    IU Football Off-Season

    I agree. However, if this season even plays out there are so many variables about sitting players who test positive, draft prospects sitting out, games being cancelled, etc. Micah Parsons on Penn State just announced he’s sitting out this year. It may level the playing field just a bit...

    IU Football Off-Season

    (Assuming the season gets played for the purposes of this post) We need to steal the PSU game, otherwise we may very well start the season 1-5. In all likelihood, this thing gets cancelled 3-4 weeks in if it even begins, but this a very front loaded schedule for us. I also think the state of Indiana got screwed on this. Everyone else is getting their primary rivalry game in by mid-October, with the understanding it’s better to move up (OSU/UM, Wisconsin/Minny, etc.) than further risk that game not being played. The Bucket game is completely expendable in this scenario to the Big Ten.

    Mark Wahlberg making scholarship offers?

    That was about as random as the time the lead singer from Good Charlotte was caught decked out in IU baseball gear

    Reports that baseball may be finished by Monday should positive cases continue to increase. Manfred may be the worst commissioner in my lifetime, and that’s saying something considering he followed Selig. Steroids brought baseball back after the 1994 strike. What’ll bring fans back this time, aluminum bats?

    The only reason the NBA and NHL are going to make this work is because their seasons were 90% complete when COVID hit. Now the NBA has better leadership than baseball and cares more about player health than the NFL, so maybe they could make a full season bubble work, but I have my doubts.
