  1. Missouri coach has understanding of IU situation. I think IU is about where Missouri was in recruiting 10 or 11 years ago. Time will tell if IU with & K. Wilson & staff & players can turn the corner for 6, 7, and 8+ win seasons. Is football recruiting curtailing off for 2015. IU needs a solid win year 6+ to keep momentum moving in positive direction and put BG loss in perspective.

  2. t, agree with you. There is a difference, however between the 2 programs. Missou has a solid FB tradition though clearly they were down prior to Pinkel. By contrast, we have never had a winning history which makes IU’s task all that more challenging. IU needs guys with the potential to play in the NFL. In any given instance, schools like Missou are going to have a better shot at landing those people than IU. We have gotten some and we’ll get more, but it is a steep and treacherous climb for IU. Our success in recruiting offense is in part the result of KW having a deserved reputation for mentoring NFL stars. We need those kinds of recruiting chops on the defensive side.

  3. Yes, Missouri does have a higher football tradition than IU, pretty solid, but not elite status. Yes, it is more challenging for IU than Missouri that is why let K. Wilson continue full length of contract with the hope somewhere along the line IU football does well enough to warrant an extension for him and staff…..and IU can start tradition in the earlier part of 21st century. So if the year 2100 comes it will look like a better football tradition than the 20th century unless everyone is playing soccer instead of football or whatever happens during this century.
