  • Good hire by Glass. It's about time that IU stop pretending to be one of the big boys, and actually start conducting a program that is.

    IU can win in football, I think they can even compete for big bowl games. There are many examples today of schools that were not on the national radar a generation ago that are now among the best in the nation.

    Oregon for example, is playing for the national title. Who were they in the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s? They were IU!

    Other programs of IUs caliber or even below, are now regular participants in bowl games. Missouri, Boise State, Kansas State, Kentucky, Louisville, Virginia Tech, Cincinnati, and Kansas are all examples of schools that were once at IUs level but have all now played in BCS or New Years Day bowl games in the last five years.

    It can be done, and now IU has taken another step in the right direction. Good job Mr. Glass, and good luck to Coach Wilson.
