Things IU Fans Can Do During The Open Week

Written By Sammy Jacobs (@Hoosier_Huddle)

We have reached the Hoosiers’ open week and it feels like forever before the Hoosiers take the field against Maryland on November 10th.

So here is a list of things to do this weekend as the Hoosiers try and regroup after falling to 4-5.

Hoosier Huddle's Big Ten Bowl Projections (Oct. 27, 2018)

Hoosier Huddle's Big Ten Bowl Projections (Oct. 27, 2018)

Written by: TJ Inman (@TJHoosierHuddle)

Turning the calendar to November means we are roughly one month from the end of the college football regular season. Every week brings a shifting in the standings and the potential bowl destinations. This article is not a reflection of where things currently stand. Rather, it is an attempt to project how things will finish. This is my best guess at the bowl game assignments for the Big Ten and of course, the Indiana Hoosiers (if there is to be one).

Hoosiers' Offense was Too Little Too Late as Comeback Bid Fell Short

Hoosiers' Offense was Too Little Too Late as Comeback Bid Fell Short

Written by Nathan Comp 

For Indiana’s offense, the story can be written in just four words: too little, too late. The Debord-led offense mounted a 22-point comeback in the 4th quarter to tie the game, but their inefficiency in the first 3 quarters had dug them too big of a hole to climb out. Ultimately, when Indiana had the ability to win the game on their final two drives, they faltered with a 3-and-out and a Peyton Ramsey strip sack.

Takeaways do Not Make Up for Lack of Pass Defense for Hoosiers

Takeaways do Not Make Up for Lack of Pass Defense for Hoosiers

Written By Lauralys Shallow

IU defense lacked pass coverage and a pass rush in its 38-31 loss to Minnesota. After tonight’s loss, IU’s record drops to below .500 for the first time this year at 4-5 (1-5), and the defense is a large reason why. Minnesota was without its starting quarterback, and redshirt freshman Tanner Morgan handled the IU defense with ease in the first half of his first career start. The secondary gave the receivers way too much room, and the defensive line could not pressure Morgan, and Minnesota dominated IU’s defense in the first half and took a commanding lead.

Comeback Falls Short in Minneapolis

 Comeback Falls Short in Minneapolis

Written by: TJ Inman (@TJHoosierHuddle)

The Indiana Hoosiers went to Minneapolis with their bowl hopes realistically on the line. However, they were outclassed early and fell behind until a frantic rally in the fourth quarter and fell to 4-5 on the season, falling 38-31 to the now 4-4 Minnesota Golden Gophers. Redshirt freshman Tanner Morgan, making his first collegiate start, completed 17 of 24 passes for 302 yards. After some early offensive success for Indiana resulted in only field goals, the Gophers took control and steadily pulled away on a soggy night under the lights at TCF Bank Stadium. The Hoosiers comeback gave hope to what was seemingly a lost cause before hope was harshly dashed yet again.
