    Well, lucky for me I was enjoying Keeneland instead of watching that game.

    Another valiant effort by the Hoosiers. Special teams sucked, too many penalties, and some big time coaching mistakes. 2 wins away from a bowl game and I don't see them getting them.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    There's definitely games they "could" win. I think the effort they put forward on Saturday probably beats Maryland and maybe beats Minnesota most games. But yeah the margin for error is essentially zero.

    Yep, they have no margin of error. But I look at their losses, aside from thinking what if, and they have been beaten by some fine football teams. tOSU, MSU, and PSU, the Hoosiers were in those games. Iowa just crushed them.

    Yep, and this hurts IU two ways since I'm sure they won't let Taylor play any WR or RB snaps.

    Well I hope they continue to use Reese in that capacity.......but Lord knows what DeBord has up his sleeve.

    Preface: This is NOT an indictment of Coach Tom Allen, as I believe that he'll eventually sap whatever potential this program possesses.

    That said, yesterday was frustrating considering that the game was there for the taking. A moral victory, I suppose...but those are, IMO, getting very old. I realize that the divisions are ridiculously unbalanced, and the IU job (like it or not) is one of the toughest jobs in the conference. But, if we're speaking of general program expectations, IMHO, there is no reason that this program shouldn't be on par with, say, Northwestern. Is that unreasonable?

    Nevertheless, it all come down to Saturday's “bucket and a bowl” game against Purdue. Thank goodness for home field adventage.

    TBH, I want Allen removed, it ain't like he took over a dumpster fire.

    Yesterday's game was very disappointing. Same ole same ole. As a life long IU fan I really don't ask for much as far as football. I would be fine being on par with Northwestern or say Iowa.

    This bucket game will be quite interesting.

    I don't see why IU can't be Mich ST. The Spartans are another basketball first school with recruiting challenges and play in the rugged Big Ten East

    I wouldn't say MSU is a basketball first school.....but I would love to achieve what they are doing as well on the gridiron.

    Along with the late Terry Hoeppner - who, IMHO, would still be coaching the Hoosiers today were it not for his untimely death - Allen is the only defensive-oriented head coach since Mallory, which has no doubt played a factor in the program's stagnation. For that reason alone, I feel as though the program's ceiling under is Allen- and I'm not suggesting positively that said ceiling will be achieved - is higher than any previous post-Mallory IU FB head coach not named Hoeppner.

    IMHO, if Allen isn't given at least as much time as Kevin Wilson (pre-Wilson's bowl appearance), it may be tough to attract a quality candidate.
