IU Football Off-Season

(Assuming the season gets played for the purposes of this post)

We need to steal the PSU game, otherwise we may very well start the season 1-5. 

In all likelihood, this thing gets cancelled 3-4 weeks in if it even begins, but this a very front loaded schedule for us.

I also think the state of Indiana got screwed on this. Everyone else is getting their primary rivalry game in by mid-October, with the understanding it’s better to move up (OSU/UM, Wisconsin/Minny, etc.) than further risk that game not being played. The Bucket game is completely expendable in this scenario to the Big Ten. 

 

I think the expectations need to be set as to what constitutes necessary cancellations. 

There will be positive tests, canceling every time there is a positive test means they shouldn't even try. Now removing those players and staff from the team when they do test positive and still moving forward is what has to happen if the season is to be played. Can't freak out if there are 5 people on a team who tested positive because everyone knows that WILL happen as it already has. 

Not saying I agree with playing the season, just stating that if we are going to try and play, games will need to be played despite positive tests.

I think ending 5-5 is the best I can see happening here. That being with the history of not being able to finish games against Penn st and michigan

Yeah I see 4-5 wins. Hoping for 5 but not holding my breath.

I agree. However, if this season even plays out there are so many variables about sitting players who test positive, draft prospects sitting out, games being cancelled, etc. Micah Parsons on Penn State just announced he’s sitting out this year. It may level the playing field just a bit...

Saw that IU's fall camp starts tomorrow. Will be at least interesting to follow fall camp even with the uncertainty of the season. Ready for some actual IU news outside of COVID.
