    2022/23 IUFB Offseason News

    In my opinion Dolson needs to find the funds to make a sizable investment in the program. Yes, there has been investment in the last 10 years or so (updated weight room and locker room and Memorial Stadium end zones) but it has been just enough to stay towards the bottom of the conference. As some have suggested, the football team needs its own designated weight room and a new practice facility. This investment will be needed regardless of who is the head coach of the team and it may even help bring better coaches down the line. Whether we like it or not, Allen will be the head coach for at least one more season. I truly like Allen as a person and I think he loves the state and the program. Just a few season ago I thought we had our version of Kirk Ferentz (or Pat Fitzgerald) and a part of me still thinks he can be that coach for us. I just hope he can find a vision for what type of offense/defense his teams are going to run and stick to it. He has mentioned he prefers a dual threat QB in the past; then why did we bring Connor in this past season? Finding a mobile QB in the transfer portal should be the main priority at this moment. Without knowing who the QB will be, it will be hard to attract other transfer portal players. I would also like for Allen to stop doing two jobs at the same time. He needs to be the head coach and let his defensive coordinator do his job. Bringing in Bostad was a great first step to address the OL issue. I think we all saw significant improvement in the offense towards the end of the season (before Dex went down). I just wonder if having a dual threat offense since the start of the season could have led us to win a few more games (Nebraska, Rutgers, Maryland??) and be bowl eligible. How different would the narrative be if we could have ended 6-6 and bowl eligible?
  4. Remember when his Wisconsin team ran up the score on us back in 2010-2011? Final score ended up being 83-20. So yeah Bielema is definitely a JACK***! GO HOOSIERS!
  5. 3-star OL out of Alcoa TN. Second offensive lineman to commit in the last week. Held offers from Florida St., Mississippi State, Oregon, Miami, and Virginia Tech among others.

    IU Football Off-Season

    Seeing that RB/KR David Ellis is also retiring from football due to health issues. Looked like a very promising piece for this team. The IU Football curse continues!

    Idk about him landing at ND. If anything he should be upset with McCullough; he's the one that recruited him to IU and probably promised he would be there to coach him.
