COME BACK TO US CARLOS, DAMN THE NCAA

In 2013, Indiana's defense ranked 110th against the rush, 112th against the pass and were 121st overall. Yeah, that's not going to get it done in high school football, let alone college.

Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.

"Urban and Ohio State better hurry and get their coaching hires lined up cause the Hooisers are looking to make noise when they replace their defensive coaches! Kevin Wilson don't play!"
--------said Nobody. Not even Indiana fans. They're too concerned with Crean's team right now.

Let's just hope they don't go after John Chavis.

Bloomington Gold is hard to achieve. I've been trying for over 45 years. GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

I hope this doesn't impact their recruiting.
Sigh.

Sadly, if Indiana was a blue blood and had the talent we have on our team, our teams would look very similar. (As far as strengths on offense and weakness on defense) I understand they are a passing team and we are a power spread rush. We have been getting by as far as we have on talent alone it appears.

He's trying to turn around a barge of mediocrity there, it'll take time. The O is coming around nicely, but the D is awful. There's talent to be had in Hoosierland, but competing with ND, OSU, and UM makes it tough.

Note- I'm a grad, but screw Crean. Makes me miss The General's sportsmanship.

The postgame show is brought to you by... Christ, I can't find it. The hell with it...

Not being complacent with below standard performance can only make me smile, especially from a perennial bottom feeder like IU. The B1G needs to be bringing up the rear just like the front lines.

That said Kevin Wilson is a good coach.  I hope they give him time there.  He can turn them into a 7-8 win team consistently.

They could with a defense.
