    College Football Thread

    Barring something crazy Kirk Ferentz is about to drop to 1-4 against Jeff Brohm. And Iowa entered all five games as the better team on paper. For whatever reason Purdue has been a matchup nightmare for them.

    Major announcement?

    I don't want to rehash a debate that was already put to bed about 15 hours ago, but I don't think anyone who openly doesn't like the Hysterics is harmful to the program or working against our players in any way. I think we all are appreciative of any NIL opportunities they can create for players and what they are capable of on that front. The issue at hand is whether or not these guys are still possibly a net negative with some of the recruit shenanigans. We won't know until events such as this and other things from their Collective start to play themselves out more. Top-50 recruits with 20+ high major offers eventually have to find a reason to cut schools out until they commit to one, and I hope that nothing the HH's do provide that reason because their passion and resources are in the right place even if their execution too often isn't. As another posted mentioned, there's no NIL opportunities for a kid who doesn't come here.
  3. My thoughts as well on the 4th down decision. I'm ok with going for it early in an attempt to trade punches with them, but if you're going to roll the dice and go for it in that instance I think you also need to roll the dice on a play call a little more imaginative than a shotgun draw up the middle that got stonewalled.

    (2022) - PF Noah Clowney

    I'm not sure but have wondered the same. Jadeveon has a cousin who plays LB at Ole Miss and is from Baltimore, so it's definitely possible Noah could be a cousin as well. Looks like Rock Hill and Roebuck are only two counties apart.

    (2022) - CG Jalen Hood-Schifino to INDIANA

    He's really close and I imagine he will get upgraded to a 5-star at some point during his senior year. 5 stars start at 0.9900 in the 247 composite and JHS is currently at 0.9891.

    (2022) PF Jalen Washington to UNC

    A CB was put in this morning for UNC with 7/10 confidence.

    (2022) PF Jalen Washington to UNC

    I like how things are coming together with our 2022 class but if Washington is out of the equation I still want to see him anywhere but Purdue. I hope the optimism out of Purdue circles is just from him being a big from northern Indiana and the likelihood those players have to wind up at Purdue. His Fan Future Cast shows Purdue, but every kid they've taken the slightest look at will have a Fan Future Cast for them.

    (2022) - SG C. J. Gunn to INDIANA

    I'm pretty sure that's Tayshawn Comer from Cathedral. I think IU has taken a look at him but his current offers are IUPUI, Ball St, Miami (OH), and Kansas State.
