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.Read More
The Wisconsin Badgers offense is pretty straightforward, hand the ball off to James White and Melvin Gordon and sprinkle in a few play action passes. That does not mean it is easy to stop. Wisconsin has put up some gaudy numbers against the Hoosiers the last three years (83,55, and 63). Could we see a repeat of the defensive performance against Navy? Maybe, probably, but Indiana does not have to be perfect on defense to win this game. They just have to be not terrible. Let’s get down to the three keys for the Hoosier defense for the Hoosiers to pull off the upset on Saturday.Read More

While we may be only three games into the season, it also happens to be the quarter mark of the 2013 slate. Isn’t it amazing how much quicker time flies when football is around?! Well, with that unfortunately being the case, we decided it was time to take a look back at the opening trio of games that the Hoosiers have played.
As opposed to doing a boring breakdown of each game, we decided to spice things up a bit and give a first quarter report card to each unit of the team. Yesterday we kicked things off with the offense, but don’t worry, we’re back today grading the defense and tomorrow we will even take a look at special teams and the coaches.
Grades for the Hoosier Offense are after the jump!
Good morning Hoosier Nation! It is game day in Bloomington as the Bowling Green Falcons invade the Rock to face the Hoosiers. Fall is in the air finally, and the Hoosiers will try to regroup on defense after a subpar performance against Navy. All I have to say is thank goodness Indiana is not facing another triple option team this week. While Bowling Green’s offense has put up 37.5 points a game, the Hoosiers should not have as much trouble stopping this more traditional offense. Let’s take a look at the three keys for success the IU defense, so put down your brat or beverage for a few minutes and read along.Read More
Happy Monday! Welcome back to the 2013 Preview Series, where we will take a look at the top 5 Hoosier defenders. The defense seems to be the key to success for the Indiana football team for the last 15 years and each year the defense seemingly fails to step up and be at the very least mediocre. 2013 is going to be no different. In order for this Hoosier team to live up to its potential the defensive unit must show some improvement upon a dismal 2012 campaign where Indiana gave up 35.2 points per game. With the recent news of an injury to starting linebacker Chase Hoobler and the dismissal of Antonio Marshall, a corner who made some plays late in the season in 2012, in addition to the graduation of their two best defensive players, the job becomes that much harder. Despite all of this the Hoosiers do have some talent returning on the defensive side of the ball, here are the top 5 defensive players for your 2013 Indiana Hoosier football team.
