    Default Indiana University Athletics Thread 2011-2012

    Hate to copy off the PU guy, but it is time to start a new thread for the new season.

    Keep hearing good things about Kevin Wilson and the mentality he has brought to the Hoosier football program. I don't expect more than 3-5 wins this year, but I am very excited about the direction our football program has taken.

    Nah, we can talk about all our other national powerhouse teams as well like soccer and swimming. It's so nice to have a school with national titles in multiple sports.

    Perea and Yogi are flying up ranking boards. Very nice to see. I think Mr. Basketball is Yogi's to lose this year.

    Anyone going to the Ball St/IU game at Lucas? I haven't decided yet. Not sure if I want to make the hour drive to watch two horrible teams see which one is less worse. Maybe if it was later in the season, but it being the first game of the season is gonna mean a sloppy game.

    I honestly don't give a **** if he's #1, #2, or #6. He's still a monumental upgrade over what we have.

    The kid has a gun that last throw just looked easy for him


    I love ESPNU I don't know I would do without ESPNU and ESPN3


    Warren versus Cathedral should be a great game tomorrow on ESPN3

    Kevin Davis WR just iced the game Warren wins and the IU recruit made the big play to close it out. Kevin will be really good when he gets a QB worth a damn I feel bad for him because at Warren all we do is run the ball. But he is putting up #s 10 catches 300 yards on the season.

    And I don't mean that to come off flippant, but look at all the other talent in the state. He's just barely in the top 100 nationally, it would take a truly unbelievable season for that to happen.

    Yogi has the inside line, because he is a point guard and his team is probably going to roll to a state championship.

    He dropped because of the Elite 11 camp, where he was put head-to-head with the other top prospects.

    You guys had to know it was coming. A #1 QB that plays Indiana HS football? What a long shot.

    He's still the number 1 QB at several other sites. ESPN is not the end all, be all of recruiting, in fact they are one of the worst.

    And how do sites put together their rankings? He doesn't play any good competition. Certainly not the level of comp he would find if he was in Florida or Texas, or Alabama etc.

    I'm not saying he's bad, I'm saying he gets an elevated status when he's playing a bunch of Jr high teams, compared to the rest of the country. And yes, I'm fully aware of Warren Central.

    He went to the Elite 11 camp, and didn't even make the finals. That's with a level playing field, and actually having to show what you're made of.

    If he would have cemented his status as the #1 QB recruit, I'm sure you guys would have used it in your favor.

    I'm not trying to poo-poo on the parade. I just remember all the talk about how Coach Lynch was supposed to keep Hep's momentum going and how IU football was going to turn around, yadda yadda yadda.

    Which is pretty much the same argument we had involving basketball. IU fans are sure quick to place the crown on a recruits head, long before they ever step foot on campus.

    EDIT: And I've seen players rankings, whether it be football or basketball, jump up or down depending on their choice of school.

    Magically, a 3star recruit turns into a 4star recruit because they sign with a Big 10 team. And magically, a 3star recruit turns into a 2star recruit because they sign with a MAC school.

    It's just a crap shoot. So many HSlers to pick from, so little coverage, and too much biasness to take seriously.

    I think most people knew Lynch was NOT going to be able to sustain ANY momentum and was a mistake from day 1. If not 'most' people then I'm sure it was a substantially large number.

    You might argue that Lynch deserved the shot because he was Hep's pick and 2nd in command... but the odds were against him. He just wasn't that solid of a coach.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Maybe for you, being removed from campus, but I'm recalling a different story on here and from my friends at IU through facebook and face-to-face conversations and me trying to pass on some knowledge about Lynch's tenure at BSU.

    But most of the responses were "Yeah, at BSU he might have sucked because they aren't Big10 blah blah blah."

    I don't know Since, I don't know anyone who had faith in Lynch. Losing Hepp was a blow that we may never fully know the stretch of. As far as our QB next year, Alabama and Oklahoma wanted Gunner BAD, that says a lot more than any ranking.
