In the final Film Study for the 2016 season, I analyze a surprisingly subpar performance against the run, and a not so surprising strong effort against the pass.
The only thing perfect about this bowl game was the performance by lacesout. The Hoosiers were competitive in this contest, but ultimately fell short. However, the 2016 PJP Over/Under champion went 7 for 7 to earn victory in the Foster Farms Bowl contest.
I’m not going to dwell on the final game coordinated by the lesser of the two Kevins, but the Foster Farms Bowl happened, therefore the film must be studied.
Your Indiana Hoosiers lace up the boots one more time this year in the Foster Farms Bowl in the sunny California Bay.
And while this is a time for the players to celebrate a good season by picking out their bowl gifts and ordering off the secret menu at one of the Bay area’s many In-N-Outs, newly minted IU Head Coach Tom Allen will tell you that there’s a game to play.
You might remember that way back in August, PJP put out a series of projections for the IU offense (here, here, here and here). One purpose of today’s post is to measure how the IU offense performed as compared to preseason expectations. Another is to pat myself on the back when I happened upon a good projection, while explaining away any projection that missed the mark. Let’s do it.
