    Game Thread: 9/11 vs. Idaho - 7:30 - BTN

    Haven’t seen anyone mention this, but when me and my friends tried to enter the student section yesterday, we were told that it was so packed that they weren’t letting anymore people in and instead we had to sit in a different section by the south endzone… which was also entirely full of students. Seems like the student body is really showing out this year.

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    I really don’t like the noon starts from a stadium atmosphere perspective. I get that older fans like it, but I think it will be difficult to get the student section in full force (and full intoxication) that early in the day.

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that Andy Katz has been to only 5 B1G campuses total.

    To be honest I have no problem with football and basketball players being adequately compensated for their contributions to the university’s revenue. Especially when none of the powers that be seen to care and the morality of making players play for free is becoming more ambiguous every year.

    2021 5th Yr/Sr Decisions

    Practice squad players make like $9000 a week. If we’re being honest he would make much more playing a season on the practice squad then he would trying to land a job with a Degree during a pandemic. Cant blame him for taking that opportunity.
  7. That was a bad L and we all look incredibly stupid for how we acted before that game now, but that’s not on the players. I know if I was on that team, after that showing the off season would start tonight and I would be hitting the hotel weight room very soon. I hope this team has a similar mentality. A loss that painful has to provide a lot of motivation for the next 6 months. This team should start the next season as a hungrier, better, and more focused group.

    WR D.J. Matthews (Transfer to IU)

    Predicting this guy comes out of nowhere on New Year’s Day and returns the first PR of the game for a TD. We can dream.

    (2021) PF Trey Kaufman to Purdue

    I’ve been on this board since like 2014 and every big time recruit thread is literally the EXACT same roller coaster haha. 1 rumor about a priority recruit going to Purdue and like a quarter of the board is ready to give up on the program for the next decade. Gotta love it lmao.

    (2021) PF Trey Kaufman to Purdue

    The schools offering him seem kind of... random. No idea why you would be entertaining Texas A&M, Wake, and Clemson when you’re being recruited by IU, UL, and PU all close to home, and the defending national champion (I guess?) UVA. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    College Bball Thread

    Has this happened in high school though?? This seems like an incredibly weird thing to do to minors to participate in something that most people are really just doing for fun. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Has Archie said anything?

    I don’t think he has to say anything publicly if he doesn’t want to but as someone one who benefits immensely from the work of young black men I hope he has at least talked to the players and supported them. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    What was your first/earliest memory of...

    Mine is probably going to some game in 2004 when I was around 6. I remember being way more interested in the cheerleaders than the game though haha Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    IUBB vs Arkansas 12/29 @ 6 pm BTN

    Does anyone know how to buy single game student tickets? I bout the season package but so far they haven’t given me a game that was any against a Northwestern Baptist Tech. I was going to say screw it and buy tickets to this one. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
