  1. I like this from Keith Caton “we’re going to eat breakfast, run fast and squat heavy”. He’ll be even better at IU than at Baylor because Wilson will support and push him to create cutting edge thoughts and actions.

  2. Winchester HS RB Kiante Enis has just de-committed from Meatchicken. Heavy projections listing he will commit to IU soon. This has been coming for a while as Harbaugh has taken RB commitments from 2 higher rated RB’s in the last 2 months.

    You’re stealing my material, Rhinestones.

    But that’s o.k. You’ll do a finer job and meet a deadline while doing it.

  4. 12-29 = collective record of BIG teams we’ve played
    29-18 = collective record of BIG teams we’ve not played.

    Iowa has played MSU, @MSU, Michigan, and @ Purdue
    Purdue has played Iowa and Michigan(playing Iowa again this weekend).
    Maryland has played @ Michigan, Northwestern, @Northwestern
    Michigan has played @Purdue, Maryland, @ Iowa.

    Indiana has not played Iowa, Purdue, Maryland, MSU or Michigan, …Indiana has played a sea of cupcakes and the entire bottom tier of the BIG. Toilet paper would be challenged to be as soft….but we ran out against Duke while throwing rolls of defense at Grayson Allen.

  5. Believe 12 games still on the schedule. Real teams. My guess, IU goes 8 & 4 to finish. Loss at Wisc, loss at Michigan, loss at Iowa – all away games. Plus loss to Iowa – home game. Would not be surprised with 6 & 6. Or even 4 & 8 but 8 & 4 would be good.

    Blackmon, going to be games where he will be missed. Impressed how the team has stepped up. Defense improvement seems strange for a CTC team, as well as the strong last 20 minutes.

    Not impressed with the ‘newer comments’ format.
