    College Football Thread

    Imo the coverage is because college football fans are desperate for something new. How many years now has college football been the Bama/Georgia/SEC show? They (with schools like Clemson/OSU,LSU sprinkled in) have dominated the landscape. Not saying that Colorado is a title contender or anything, but Deion and Colorado are something new and exciting. I like it, personally.

    Honestly? Yes. I don’t like Allen’s personality. I find it embarrassing, to be frank. I think he’s bad at holding people accountable. His in-game management is not good. Far too often he plays ‘not to get blown out,’ versus playing to win. The OSU game this year, for example. No one can convince me that he went into that game with a game plan designed to win. As for expectations, I don’t really have any at this point. 6-7 wins more often than not would be nice.

    It’s insane to me that guys get ejected for weak ‘targeting’ penalties that are nothing more than guys making football plays but an absolute cheap shot like the one on Travis Hunter doesn’t get you ejected. https://x.com/nfl_dovkleiman/status/1703243714624200988?s=46&t=LoczziaTWuqlhvyvHGT92A

    It gets written off because we returned most of our starters the next season and then went 0-9 in the Big 10. Hard not to see 2020 as a fluke.
  5. Didn’t watch the second half but what an IU football way to lose.
  6. Seriously though this defense is atrocious. We’re getting gashed by a mediocre Louisville offense.
  7. The best we can offer you is manic sideline clapping
  8. I kind of think MSU probably handled this properly (without really reading much). It’s not like they had an incentive to cover this up. Tucker sucks. This is a get out of jail free card for that $95 million contract they foolishly gave him.

    IUFB Dropping Louisville in 2024

    Allen giving the new guy an easier time next season. Can’t say enough about the character on that man.
  10. If this game isn’t out of hand by the time I finish working out and picking up my wings I’ll be mighty disappointed.

    I haven’t said anything about WB at all. The best OC in the country would struggle for the offensive firepower, or lack thereof, that we have. My issues are entirely with Tom Allen. We runs the program. He brings in the players. He brings in the coaches. He’s been on a nosedive since the Outback Bowl. Do you think he’s going to turn things around?

    We’ve lost 15 of our last 17 conference games and just put up a measly 153 yards of offense last Saturday. We played a game plan designed to avoid getting blown out, not a game plan designed to win, which is gross to see in year 7 of a coach’s tenure. Not all of us were “pretty pleased” by that performance.

    The Big 10 will be wide open for us now that they’re getting rid of the divisions and gave us favorable protected opponents (Purdue, Maryland, Michigan State). Not wide open for us in the sense that we’ll be competing for the top obviously, but the road to a fairly consistent 7-8 wins will be a lot more manageable going forward. 3 easy non-conference games and 2 of the 3 protected games and you’re already at 5 wins. Now’s the time for the administration to really take football seriously. Edit: I’m actually not sure how the additions of Oregon and Washington will affect the protected games. Looks like the articles I was looking at were written before their additions.

    We won 8 games in 2019 but didn’t beat any teams with a winning record. The teams we beat went 5-7, 1-11, 2-10, 2-10, 3-9, 5-7, 3-9, and 4-8. We capitalized on a favorable schedule, but that should’ve been in Dolson’s mind too. Maybe it was, who knows. I don’t think anyone predicted Allen imploding as fast and as bad as he has, so it’s mostly hindsight anyway.

    If they can afford to buy him out then my arguments are null. But if he has another season like the past two and he’s back in 2024, being able to afford to buy him out but not doing so would just make that scenario all the more depressing.
