All sports are predicated on statistics and numbers, especially football. The Indiana Hoosiers put up some very impressive numbers in their 28-10 victory over the Indiana State Sycamores. Let’s dive into some of those numbers and see what they mean.

455- The number of rushing yards the Hoosiers gained in the game. This came on 69 carries. 455 yards are a new Memorial Stadium record.

566- The total amount of yards gained by the Hoosiers offense. It was the eighth time under Kevin Wilson that the Hoosiers surpassed the 500-yard threshold.

11- True freshman made their debut for the Hoosiers. Kevin Wilson has never been afraid to play the young guys.

30- Rushing yards given up by a stout Hoosier defense. This marks the lowest rushing total from an opponent since the Hoosiers defeated Western Michigan in 2009.

170- Total yards given up by the Hoosiers, the lowest since a win over Murray State in 2008.

Sports’ Pat Forde took a shot at IU.

Changes are Abundant for the Hoosiers in 2014

The 2014 Indiana Hoosier football team will have to deal with many new faces and changes. There will be new coaches on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball as well as a new direction on special teams.  All this will surely bring about new challenges and hopefully much success. While personnel changes on the coaching staff will be a focus for Hoosier head coach Kevin Wilson, the largest focus for the Hoosiers will be adjustments on the field.
