We're getting into the swing of things in football season, soccer season is heating up, and Hoosier Hysteria is just around the corner. With all of these exciting things going on we thought it might be a good time to answer some questions. MAILBAG TIME:
Stevie Scott and Ronnie Walker sound like a pair of traveling blues musicians. What would their band name be?— Tyler Conaway (@TyConaway) September 18, 2018

So, when we inevitably knock off aOSU do we really have to drive all the way to Columbus to tear down the goal posts or can we just walk over to empty Memorial Stadium and do it there?— SamuelTheFirst (@Samuel_I) September 18, 2018
If you have the urge to go to Columbus and tear down their goal posts, go for it. If you want to celebrate in a more cost effective way, I’d suggest having three (3) Miller High Lifes, following the steps provided here to build your own goal posts, then tearing them down.
The question is not WILL we win a National Championship this year, but how MANY will we win after that?— Austin Adams (@austinadams24) September 18, 2018

Are we actually going to see The Penix get redshirted? Seems to me like even if Ramsey remains the starter, Penix is for sure Plan B should something happen. Don't know who else would be.— Derek Hutton (@HuttHuttHike) September 18, 2018
I believe that the intent is to redshirt Mike Penix, hence why we didn’t see him in the Virginia game, but I’m not sure if that will actually work. Of course if anything were to happen to Peyton Ramsey that redshirt will burn and if IU continues to play well Penix has the talent to contribute to a winning team right now as a change of pace QB, so that temptation could be there as well. If you’d like to mark down potential Penix sightings I’d guess we’ll see him in Piscataway and against Maryland. Hopefully the redshirt sticks, but at this point ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
More memeable event: Bill Lynch throwing gum or Tom Allen kicking trash cans?— Josh Olmsted (@michugana) September 18, 2018
Both of these are very memeable, but ultimately I’m going with Allen and the trash can.
Thoughts on the appearance of the new south end zone? Anything you'd personally like to see added to further improve gameday experiences?— yung lexapro (@btownmoose) September 18, 2018
Also, is Purdue absolutely screwed?
A three parter here. Let’s break it down:
1.I think it looks pretty nice, as does basically every other facilities upgrade IU has completed in recent years.
2. Just gonna leave this here:
3. Things don’t exactly look like they’re going Purdue’s way. Unless Jeff Brohm figures something out they could be in for a long season.
is this an accurate series of events for this saturday? pic.twitter.com/WRJncoBIiv— blake jackson (@BeezySZN) September 18, 2018
Fun fact: if you flip those images it’s the series of events of basically every IU game against a ranked opponent in the last 10+ years. That being said, that depiction is definitely how Saturday could go.
