    How long a leash on Penix?

    I agree that if you want to beat an OSU, PSU, or someone like that you need Penix to do that. I think Tuttle can manage a win against WKU or Purdue but not sure he can beat a top 25 team. I think that is why you stick with Penix. IU football this season has been like waiting for Christmas to get here, then three presents in so far we've only got socks and underwear.

    Boy, this one hurts. Andy was just a little older than me in high school, but always looked up to him and read about him in the paper. Then to get to know him and his family, he lived up to everything I already thought about him. Prayers to the family. It's going to be a great loss to IU and the community. Just have a loss of words.

    How long a leash on Penix?

    Allen just said Penix is 100% the starter next week. I'm not sold that Penix is healthy, but also not sold on Tuttle. He was OK last year taking over after the Penix injury. McCulley is going to start getting more reps as the season goes in practice, already getting some.

    I'm guessing he will take all 4 visits since they are all free but he'll know where he is going after the weekend.

    I think Noah picks us. If we can't beat out Virginia Tech for a basketball recruit then I don't know what to say. But this is for Old Fart

    I hope it happens but I can say almost for sure that no one on the IU team has gotten a six-figure deal yet. Will one player get there with several deals maybe but as of now not close yet.

    I was just asking last night to try to get an idea of what most people think the going rate will be for the great players at IU. Or to see if we are competing with schools. Merchant Bank gave TJD and Patberg a nice deal but it's not the money you would make playing Overseas, or in the G-League, or even in Overtime Elite. But it's just one deal of many I'm sure TJD will get, just not sure he will get many big deals. I think we're going to need more big boosters or business owners to step up.

    How much money do you think he has to make to turn down a professional deal?

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    I’m not sure but would be happy to ask someone. I’m all for them if they help just a little bit. I will say we haven’t heard of any concussions that I can think of.

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    Have not heard anything like that yet. We're 3 weeks from the first home game so that would need to be announced soon.

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    We are at 91% faculty/staff and 90% student population as of right now. I'm guessing it means that some people on the football team decided to opt for one of the exemptions. Which is OK but you do have to be tested 3 times a week for the university, and wear your mask indoors at all times.

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    Yes as long as no one tests postive. But I believe our team is sitting at around 90% vaxxed rate.

    IUFB Offseason Updates

    Only if they are a close contact of someone testing positive. I do know that IU did a different type of testing this week to get ready for the first game. Hopefully, everyone was prepared but I wouldn't be surprised if there is one or two who failed the test. Not sure what the punishment would be for a first-time offender. https://theathletic.com/news/ncaa-releases-covid-19-guidelines-suggests-longer-quarantines-for-unvaccinated/gDMmfe6xFKbO
