Mullen’s “New Wave” Brings Excitement to Indiana Defense

Mullen’s “New Wave” Brings Excitement to Indiana Defense

Written by: Nate Comp (@NathanComp1)

Just over a year ago in September of 2018, cornerback Tiawan Mullen committed to Tom Allen and the Indiana Hoosiers. But just like his dedication in continuing to improve his game, recruitment did not stop here.

No, I don’t mean this in the sense that so many football player’s “commitments” flip-flop overnight. Exactly the opposite, actually. Mullen was dedicated to the Indiana Hoosiers and had no intention of flipping his commitment to any other of his 19 scholarship offers. Instead, Mullen continued recruitment by hitting Twitter.

Allen, Wommack Make Tackling a Priority Heading into Week Two

Allen, Wommack Make Tackling a Priority Heading into Week Two

Written by Andrew Walker

It’s no secret that tackling was a main point of emphasis heading into the season under new defensive coordinator Kane Wommack. While the Ball State game wasn’t exactly the most exemplary showcase of the Hoosiers’ tackling ability, it laid the groundwork for what needs to be improved upon. The Hoosiers missed 25 tackles according to head coach Tom Allen. Those missed tackles allowed Ball State to gain 181 yards.

2019 Indiana Football Positional Preview: Quarterbacks

2019 Indiana Football Positional Preview: Quarterbacks

Written by Sammy Jacobs (@Hoosier_Huddle)

The penultimate position group in our pre-season previews is the quarterbacks. As of publication, Tom Allen has not officially announced a starter for the Hoosiers opener against Ball State. He did say on Thursday an announcement will come next week sometime. For the first time in a long time Indiana has loads depth at the position. Peyton Ramsey returns after starting all 12 games a year ago, while highly touted redshirt freshman Michael Penix has made his way back from an ACL injury after playing in three games last year. The Hoosiers also bring in former four-star recruit Jack Tuttle as a transfer from Utah. EDITORS NOTE: I have listed the quarterbacks in alphabetical order and I will not be giving a prediction on who will start a week from Saturday against Ball State.

Hoosiers Get Feel For Lucas Oil Stadium as Opener Draws Closer

Written by Sammy Jacobs (@Hoosier_Huddle)

The Hoosiers traveled up to Indianapolis to practice in Lucas Oil Stadium, the site of their season opening tilt against the Ball State Cardinals, on Thursday afternoon. “It's beautiful,” Indiana head coach Tom Allen said, “they've done a great job and it has a great feel to it. It's first class all the way. I didn't get a chance to coach in here at the high school level, they hadn't built it yet, but I've watched a few games here, but this will be my first time on the field here and it's awesome."

2019 Indiana Football Positional Preview: Wide Receivers

2019 Indiana Football Positional Preview: Wide Receivers

Written by Evan McShane (@veryreasonable)

The wide receiver position is one of the deepest and most talented groups Indiana will field in 2019. Led by seniors Donavan Hale and Nick Westbrook, the sky truly is the limit with this year’s Hoosiers’ receiving corps. Of course, not without mention is the addition of Kalen DeBoer as IU’s new offensive coordinator. While Indiana’s alignment and formations may not change much, DeBoer’s desire to throw the deep ball and stretch the defense vertically should add a new dynamic to the Hoosier offense. Behind Hale and Westbrook are a stable of young wide outs ready to step into bigger roles. Whoever wins the quarterback battle will have plenty of weapons at his disposal.

The Indiana Hoosiers have done a terrific job of recruiting at the running back position. After Tevin Coleman and Jordan Howard succeeded in Cream and Crimson and have shined in the NFL, running backs coach Mike Hart has some good selling points and the Hoosiers have reeled in some depth at the position.
