    We toss out the term "embarassing" quite a bit with sports teams, but I feel like IU football has really earned that this year. They are nothing but a punchline.

    Just heard this, the attendance at Hoosier Hysteria was 16,100 people on Saturday like I already said, however just found out only 9 teams in the entire country had that many people come out for actual games last year.

    IU was 12th in attendance last year with 15,295 average. Pretty sure we're gonna crush that number this year.

    Just heard this, kind of sucks for IU but there is still a chance Keil will keep his original commitment

    Ya i heard that earlier this week.... If he decommits i may have to reconsider my fandom of IU football.. They HAVE to lock up the big ones when they get the chance.. It doesn't come often when you have a great shot at a kid like this and if he commits then decommits and goes somewhere else, i believe that will be devastating to the future of IU Football... Likely never make it out of the cellar. A player of that stature however will bring in more talent and start getting the IU name out there a little more for football and we could have a solid team... Crushing if we miss that chance.

    Just goes to show you how out of hand recruiting's gotten that people take these "verbal commitments" so seriously. They honestly shouldn't even be reported.

    Definitely part of it, but come on, it's IU football, who can really blame him?

    Why would someone commit to IU over Oklahoma and Alabama in the first place? That's the big question here.

    no kidding I really didn't think he would come. It would of took me seeing him sign on signing day to believe it. It would of been suicide for his career to go to IU over Bama.

    Tre Roberson looks really good. The defense looks really bad.

    With the way Purdue is handling Illinois so far, it's clear that we won't win another game this season.

    Not really shocked to hear about Kiel.

    I don't care what kind of connections to IU you have, when you're supposedly one of the best players in the nation, you don't commit to IU. You just don't. IU is the epitome of football failure.

    Go to Alabama, Notre Dame, ANYWHERE but IU.

    Now if it were basketball, IU would be a fine choice. But don't waste your college football career on IU. He wouldn't turn anything around. He'd just be a good player on yet again probably the worst team in the Big 10 (11, 12, 13, 25, whatever it is now)
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    At least IU covered (barely) against Iowa. Roberson looked like a solid little QB, makes you wonder what took so long for him to get a start.

    I want Purdue to knock off one of their next 3 big boys (yeah right) to make the Bucket for a bowl birth, and hopefully Danny Hope's job (yeah right x2). A chippy battle of ineptitude would make for an entertaining postgame handshake between Wilson and Hope.

    I think he could still have a decent chance to get to the NFL if he came to IU, if he had receivers like Doss or Belcher he would definitely have a shot. As long as he has enough talent around him he would be fine.

    Ben Chappell even got a shot in the NFL and he has no where near the same talent as Keil, the previous QB would have even had a chance if he did not mess up and get kicked off the team. I definitely do not think it would be a waste, I am sure IU would be middle of the conference or better if he played to his potential year in and year out.

    But losses can really turn a recruit away, and that seems to be pretty much what happened in this case.

    Verbal "commitments" and subsequent "de-commitments" are just one more reason why I do not follow recruiting whatsoever.

    But as has been said, hard to blame him.

    Did anyone else think last night's Colts game and subsequent postgame coach's press conference was stunningly similar to 2010 IU @ Wisconsin?

    Jim Caldwell = Bill Lynch in so many ways it's frightning.

    Right down to the terrible record coaching in college before getting the head coach jobs.

    Just wait till basketball season starts. Roughly 75% of my posts in this thread will be me *****ing about Tom Crean's coaching, followed by Trader Joe arguing the other side. Ahhh, it's a winter rite of passage.

    It just wouldn't be an IU season without it.
