That's great to see Kurtis and Miles together at Indiana but man, I didn't realize how bad Indiana has been over the years. They've only had 1 season with 8 or more wins in the past 20 years. Yikes

Only team in FBS with 0 bowl wins this century.

Think they havenít won since the early 90ís.


Let us all not forget - there was a school we all know and love that was one of the most downtrodden programs in all of D-I not so long ago. It was know for having a nice campus, in a cool town, with a good basketball program and a horrible football program. Sound familiar? Yes, Iím talking about Ohio, and you can say the exact same thing about Indiana now. Prior to the Grobe/Solich eras, Ohio football was pretty putrid. Losses piled up year after year and bowl games were all but wishful thinking. But it doesnít have to remain that way. It takes a university/athletic department vision, a commitment to resources, hiring the right coach, and bringing in players that want to be part of the change. Thatís exactly what happened at Ohio and what Indiana can be in position to do itself. IU is a beautiful campus and Bloomington is a cool college town. Itís always going to be tough to top hoops at IU but they have recently done major work on their football facilities and they have an outstanding stadium. They also went out and hired a coach who could be just the guy to put Indiana in much better shape in Big Ten football. Iíve literally watched this all unfold right in front of my eyes with Ohio (as some of you have as well) and Rourke and Miles have the potential to help jumpstart the same thing at IU. They both have a great opportunity to play Big 10 football at a very cool school and I wish them both the very best.


And as for the future, they just got an commitment today from a 4 star QB.

Overrated or not, youíre only kidding yourself if you think basketball is going to be easy to top at IU. From a lifelong line of Hoosiers in the family, any one of them would be happy to debate and disprove you on that remark.

I knew what you meant with the ďtheyĒ and not ďwe.Ē And yes, a really nice pickup for them. I really believe heís going to put some life and energy into that program. Itís going to be damn near impossible to be an upper tier Big 10 team with OSU and UM and who the Big 10 is adding. But thereís no reason IU canít solidify itself in the next tier with its other peers with the resources and direction they have lined up. Time will tell but the Hoosier faithful is excited with the direction early on.

Only because the football program is that awful.

IU basketball hasn't been relevant to anyone other than their fans in many, many years.

If this guy is "not worried about NIL money" but wants to transfer and isn't going to end up at South Carolina or Boston College (and won't be welcomed back at Vandy after this little long winded tweet)...let's get him!

He returns kicks too.

No shocker on Quinn. Plenty of potential. Never saw the field. Switched positions. Columbus kid out of the program.

Yeah thatís too bad, but not surprising. Thought he shouldíve stayed at LB, but the writing mustíve been on the wall. Still couldíve developed into a strong 2nd behind RHJ? Ah well.

We had so many injuries at running back at one point last season that he tried to switch midseason for the good of the team. McCormick was getting most of the carries. Tyler Toledo got some. Neatherton walked back on to fill a need. Now, I guess they had the whole offseason to decide where to put him f0r 2023.

Interesting tidbit. Lots of people on the recruiting page saying we need to recruit more Ohio kids. About half of the roster is Ohio players (60ish). Of the 12 scholarship players in the portal right now only two are Ohio kids (Foster & Quinn). Obviously in the portal for different reasons. You could say one was a ďhitĒ for the staff and one was a ďmiss.Ē Of the the 10 others not from Ohio, Iíd characterize 7 as ďhits.Ē (Torrie, Danneker, Kurtis, Sieh, OíShaan, Walton, Cross).

All this says to me is, at least based off portal entries, Ohio has ďhitĒ on a higher number of out of state kids. But they may be more likely to leave and enter the portal to go elsewhere. Kindof a trade off. Get more loyal (possibly less talented local guys). Or go big or go home with national talent. Thoughts?

Turns out it may have been more about the money than he implied. Plus he irked the Carolina staff with this whole ordeal. As for getting himself drafted, Xavier Legette will likely be a first round draft pick off a 5 win South Carolina team. Hope it all works out for him, but his statement certainly didnít line up.

Ben Johnson and Bryce Kitrell enter the portal. No surprises there.

We're up to 16 bobcats in the portal now with only 4 that have found a new home.
