    I didn't realize that the success of the football team was so important to your selfesteem. It will be okay. Better days are ahead. Or atleast they can't get much worse.
    It's not. I didn't realize you were talking about football. The guy you quoted was talking academics, I believe. Or that's the way I took it.

    No, but Ball State does. BSU is the best public school in the state.

    I fail to see where the conversation was academics. I thought the topic was the fact that IU was rated 109 and Purdue was rated 106. I thought Heisenberg missed Ball State ranking at 77.

    Well, he was responding to BRush, who in another thread at another time said he attended Purdue because it was the best academic school in the state when we were bickering over IU/PU. I (perhaps mistakenly) thought that was what Heisenberg was referring to, but now I realize it's entirely possible (probable) that I was wrong.

    Yeah, I was just making a joke about how bad all the state's public schools are in football. I did forget about Ball State, but Purdue'd beat them. Well, maybe.

    The state of Indiana hasn't cared enough to create good football players in a long time. All the good athletes in the state pick up a basketball once they can walk.

    This is not true there are plenty good players in HS football. The problem for IU is all the good players good to the VT and the much better programs and I dont blame them for that.

    Please Indiana is not an amateur football state and never has been. We have maybe 1 5 star recruit a year at most. The best athletes play basketball here. That's just a fact and it's reflected in our disparity in terms of bball recruits vs. football recruits.

    I mean look at our freaking Mr. Football last year that went to Warren Central and then IU, the guy was a borderline 3/4 star recruit and was the best player in the state.

    My buddy from Warren was in the top 150 last year went to VT he was a 4 star and had no interest in IU he would of laughed if someone told him to go play football at IU lol. Warren also had another 4 star who went to UNC. This year they have 6 players who are 3/4 star recruits one already committed to IU. I mean IU cant expect to land a player higher than 3 star and there are plenty of good 3 star players in IN high school football. A lot more kids play football than you think IN has been slowing turning into a great HS football state.

    5 star recruits win championships. We have almost none any year.

    my god IU is never gonna win a championship in football and there are plenty of 3 and 4 star recruits on championship teams though. If you have good coaches who can teach 3 stars can get to a 5 star level after a few years.

    You are completely missing the point. I never said IU would win a championship. I am merely stating that one of the reasons Indiana football struggles so much particularly over the past decade (and when I say Indiana, I mean Notre Dame, Purdue, IU, etc.) is because there is no real in state talent.

    Maybe if you were an Illinois or Purdue fan

    I think most people in Indiana are fond of Butler, even if they are fans of another team.. Their the underdog for the state!

    The only seat I've ever had in there that didn't completely suck was directly behind the bench. And those aren't for sale.

    As a general rule, Assembly Hall has the worst sightlines of any arena you can find.

    It is ridiculously loud though. The loudest sporting event moment I've ever attended was the Duke game when Redick was a senior and they were #1. When fatass Killingworth got a steal and dunk to put IU ahead, I thought my ear drums were going to burst. Pretty awesome.

    Killingsworth the transfer from Auburn lol what ever happen to him did he go to Europe? He actually wasn't too bad but some college experts built him up to be the savior.


    Ya I mean it isn't Mackey where every seat is a good view. The thing I hate about Assembly is that if you have a bad seat you cant even see the scoreboard lol.

    The place is designed to hold the sound. Yes, the sight lines are horrid and if you walk down the stairs too drunk, you will either break your neck or crap your pants from the fear of breaking your neck.

    But when it gets loud...it gets very, very loud. The over head balconies just hold the sound in.

    So...I'm wasting time that could be better spent watching IU v. Illinois. I just cannot believe how awful IU's offense is.

    Young line, young QBs. But, you get the ball 1st and goal at the opponent's three and you can't punch it in? Don't even attempt a pass?

    It's almost like you have to work hard to be down this much when you have a KO-TD return and you've recovered two IL fumbles, one on their three. And you've actually driven the field two or three times only to stall out every one.

    I am not liking the way Kevin Wilson coaches he has made several key mistakes in this game.

    Yeah. Some things are mystifying. Additionally, he's got no QB and a sieve for an O line. Actually, I'm hoping they just play the Roberson guy. I've seen enough Kiel.
