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.
There was a football game over a week ago. You might have forgotten. I’m not here to remind you, only to dole out points.
An offense that looked fairly listless against the Hawkeyes showed signs of life against Penn State. Of course, one very important “sign of life” from the Penn State game, true freshman QB Michael Penix, is now lost for the year to a torn ACL. Because we can’t have nice things.
