Speaking of coach Littrell, I hope that WHEN we start to win a lot of games, & the poachers come sniffing around CKW, that we’re bright enough to immediately turn around &heittrell CKW gets poached. Got to have a plan, & Littrell would just continue what Wilson has done, we might not miss a beat.

well, that’s my opinion anyway, I know a lot more goes into hiring a head coach than what I make it sound like. So, maybe I’m the one not bright enough(maybe?), I realize this.

I’m confident that Glass has a plan and that he demands his head coaches to have succession plans in place. But all the planning in the world won’t help unless IU has the money/budget necessary to compete with other BCS-conference schools in getting and keeping quality coaches.

Littrell coached Foles at Arizona, who is now the Eagles starter. Those Arizona teams had potent offenses and placed numerous players into the NFL. I think Littrell has a very bright future in coaching. But before that future is realized, IU needs to produce a winning season. And to do that, IU needs a competitive defense. If they can’t produce a competitive defense, a coach like Littrell will take a lateral move to a school that has the chance of winning, so that he gets the exposure necessary to become a head coach.

The next two years are key for IU football.

SL was a driver for IU’s offensive improvement but what would happen w/o OL Coach Greg Frey leading May HS grads to be starters in the B10. The face of this is the 4-8 record being penalized here more than the scrutinizing of the job done. GF moved his charges a farther distance up the improvement scale than Cushing, Miller and Warinner. In other words they had less coaching to be done than Frye.
