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
With the bowl season just a few days away, and while the Hoosiers will not be bowling there are still plenty of very solid games to watch, now is a perfect time to look back at the 2013 regular season for the Hoosiers.
1. The Offense- While inconsistent at times the 2013 Hoosiers offense was a record setter. Indiana averaged 38.4 points and 508.5 yards per game. Sophomore Tevin Coleman finished just 42 yards short of becoming the first Hoosier back to crack the 1,000-yard mark since 2001. He definitely would have if not for the ankle injury he suffered in the fourth quarter of the Illinois game. Junior Cody Latimer became the first IU receiver to break the 1,000-yard receiving milestone since James Hardy in 2007. The outlook for 2014 is good despite the Hoosiers losing running back Stephen Houston (790 rush yards), Kofi Hughes (739 receiving yards), and Ted Bolser (six touchdowns), also the Hoosiers have not figured out their quarterback situation.Read More
The Hoosiers need to pull an upset in the next two weeks in order to have a shot at a sixth win against Purdue on the final weekend of the season. Up first for the Hoosiers are the Wisconsin Badgers, who have dominated the Hoosiers since 2002. It just hasn’t been bad defense that has hurt Indiana. The offense has just 21 points in the two losses in the Kevin Wilson era. New year. New team. Let’s get down to business and look at the three keys for the Hoosiers offense to shock the world and upset the Badgers in Madison on Saturday.Read More
Opponent: Illinois Fighting Illini
Location: Saturday November 9th /3:30pm/ Memorial Stadium/ (Bloomington, Indiana)
Why They Played: The Hoosiers and the Illini meet for the 71st time in their history in a Leaders Division match-up.
What The Game Meant:
Indiana was trying to erase the memory of a tough loss last week against Minnesota and keep their slim bowl hopes alive. Illinois was trying to end a 18-game Big Ten losing streakRead 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. Today we are kicking things off with the offense, but don’t worry, we will be grading the defense, special teams, and even the coaches throughout the week.
Grades for the Hoosier Offense are after the jump!Read More
What a difference a week can make. After getting torched for 41 points against Navy the Hoosier defense came out on a mission and did not allow an offensive touchdown. The Hoosiers faced the Bowling Green Falcons with their season in the balance in Week 3 and proved they can overcome a poor performance in Week 2.
Opponent: Bowling Green Falcons
Location: Saturday September 14th /12pm/ Memorial Stadium/ (Bloomington, Indiana)
Why They Played: The Hoosiers and Falcons meet for the first time on the gridiron as part of a home-and-home series. Indiana always has had a good relationship with the MAC and plays at least one school from the conference every year.
What The Game Meant:
This was a must win game for the Hoosiers. Not a should win or a could win, but a real must win game. After falling to Navy, the Hoosier’s bowl hopes rested on today’s game against the Falcons. Kevin Wilson deemed it a big enough game to break out the Chrome helmets a week early.Read More
Finally it is Friday and game day is almost here. This week the Hoosiers take on the Bowling Green Falcons at noon at The Rock. Yes, it is an early game, but it is a big one for the Hoosiers as they need get the season back on the winning track after falling to Navy last week. Aside from the Hoosiers breaking out the new chrome helmets tomorrow we are going to give Hoosier Nation three things to look for offensively from Indiana.Read More
