Welcome to the Hoosier Huddle! As you surely are aware, there are many sites dedicated to Indiana University Athletics, most notably basketball. However, while visiting these pages it has become painfully obvious that there was a gap in coverage when it comes to Indiana Football. While it was touched upon occasionally it took a back seat, and at times even that back row in those SUV's that seat 7.
We have set out to change the status quo. While we understand that Indiana will always be considered a "Basketball School", that does not mean that there isn't room enough for two programs in Bloomington.
This will be a site solely dedicated to coverage, discussion and breakdown of the Indiana University Football Program. We hope that in the coming days, months and years we can become your leading source for FREE Hoosier Football information.
We plan on providing the standards, or at least that is the case at every other Big Ten school, such as season previews, individual game previews, game recaps, recruiting news, etc. We also plan to break down the history and traditions of the program while providing you with player profiles and daily insight into the program that you clearly love as much as we do. Please take a look around the site and enjoy learning about the history and tradition of Indiana Hoosier Football.
Thank You and Go Hoosiers!
