Week Seven Preview: Rutgers Scarlet Knight

The Indiana Hoosiers will host the Rutgers Scarlet Knights for their annual Homecoming game on October 12th. After hosting the likes of Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska and other top-flight teams for homecoming the Hoosiers caught a break with Rutgers. However, the last time IU hosted the Scarlet Knights for homecoming it was a disaster, as the Hoosiers blew a 52-27 lead as part of a soul-crushing 55-52 loss. Rutgers enters the 2019 season riding an 11-game losing streak and if the worm doesn’t turn early, Chris Ash’s seat will be in flames when this game takes place in Bloomington.

Countdown to IUFB Kickoff: 47 Days (Micah McFadden)

Written by Amanda Pavelka (@AmandaPavelka3)

COUNTDOWN TO KICKOFF: #47 MICAH MCFADDEN

Height: 6’2”

Weight: 230 pounds

Hometown: Tampa, Florida (Plant)

Year: Sophomore

Position: LB

Only six more Indiana football-less Saturdays remain until the season kicks off against the Ball State Cardinals at Lucas Oil Stadium. The August 31st noon matchup is 47 days away, so today we will feature the guy representing the Hoosiers’ No. 47 jersey— none other than Micah McFadden.

Even a season of nameless jerseys did not make a difference when it comes to recognizing sophomore linebacker Micah McFadden. A true freshman, the Florida native played in all 12 games in the 2018 season. His stat line for last season read 20 tackles, 14 solo, with one for loss, a single forced fumble, and a pair of quarterback hurries.

As far as his performance in the off-season, no news was confirmed good news in the press conference before the spring game: “I haven’t mentioned him in a little bit, but the growth from last fall to right now is pretty intense in a good way,” Coach Tom Allen said.

With big shoes to fill with the departure of Dameon Willis, McFadden has proven himself a top contestant, along with former high school teammate and redshirt sophomore Thomas Allen and redshirt freshman James Miller.
