    Crappy defenses at IU! This does not sound like an assistant staffer of USC caliber imho.

    His head is shaped like a shoebox.

    Anyone know if this dude is any good, or is he just another retread in a sea of retreads now a part of USC football?
    Everything I’ve read on this guy is mixed. Some good stuff but mostly blah.

      Please contact one of your “inside sources”, I’m sure they could answer your questions

        Why dont you just go ahead and insert your phallus into your glossopharyngeal cavity….so we don’t have to hear from you.

          Interesting!…Betomas’ phallus has been stuck in your external auditory meatus, I’m not sure if you can hear anything…..just saying

      Who in their right mind would come now? Everyone knows this is a flyer.

  • Ted

    never heard of him before…I’d be more optimistic if they hired the guy at IU that is in charge of defense of basketball…cause IU football stinks!

    Who is mike Ekeler?

    • TrojanFan

      Your worst nightmare….LOL!

      I think he also goes by “Mike Jones” a Houston Rapper. His rap career flamed out so he figured he could hide out as sc LB coach since no one will be watching there games this coming season.

        Word on the street he’s your daddy!

        USC will outdraw the ruins in home attendance with ease, idiot!

        PS…..Bucket would like you to visit the tree house for an aggressive game of butt darts….OUCH!!!!

    So in retrospect, Ekeler is a Bill Snyder player. That means he is a sound tackler & smart in his decisions playing on the field. This is & has been a linebacker weakness lately on USC teams.
    Ekeler has coached at LSU, Nebraska & Oklahoma before coming to Indiana. Each one of those stops, those schools had good defenses & good seasons. What is not to like about this so far? Even at Indiana, which is undoubtably a lower class program and his greatest challenge, you could read his players making advances. What program, good or bad, doesn’t need this to happen?
    Lets hope he & Pendergast make a good pair working together. They will have a lot of underclassmen to deal with…. pretty scary.

    How long before DBag Wolf craps all over this guy and writes made up stories about him?

    • I just crapped on you

        Big words form such a small man. Go back to playing your video games and Pokemon cards.

          Here’s the kicker, he didn’t pull his pants down….. what a stinky mess!

    Hey, don’t knock Hoosiers football. They were almost as good as pUSC this year at 4-8!
