Going into the Maryland game, if you had asked most IU fans to name the defense’s biggest weakness, I suspect most of them would have pointed to a secondary that struggles against downfield passing or an inconsistent pass rush. Against the Terrapins, however, an additional weakness came to the fore: tackling.
I’m just here to fulfill the over/under obligations in my lucrative contact with PJP. While it is very unlikely that Indiana wins this week, or possibly even stays within striking distance, let these over/unders serve as an additional reason to watch the game.
It wasn’t always pretty but the oblong ball fell Indiana’s way a couple times (after the Penn State game, IU was due) and Indiana held on for victory #5. The Hoosiers will probably need to play better to beat Purdue (and a LOT, LOT better to beat, or come close to beating, Michigan) but a win is a win and the postseason dream is still alive.
A decent performance against Penn State, followed by a rough outing against the Gophs. Let’s take a look.
The Hoosiers are back in action this weekend. Two seasons ago against Maryland, facing a near-must win, Kevin Wilson debuted the Bacon N Legs formation. The result was 650 yards of total offense.
I can’t wait to see what kind of crazy, short passes Mike DeBord dials up this weekend.
