I agree with all those who have said that the main problem is the turnovers, to an extent that i'm not sure is fully appreciated. Before the second Marshall fumble, with a 10-point lead and good field position, I thought we were in position to mount the drive that would put the game away, If we score a TD there, we might end up with a final result similar to last season's game. Instead we handed the ball right back, the coaches started to play not to lose with the offensive playcalling (i.e. nothing but Zeke), and it turned into a 60-minute game.
A few other comments:
We need some sort of new idea for red zone playcalling. The tighter throwing windows seem to be psyching Jones out.
The diminishing presence of the zone read seems to have made our running game more predictable and easier to defend. It's not easy to sustain drives when you have one player getting virtually all the carries, and a quarterback whose accuracy comes and goes.
Time for the latest generation of wide receiver recruits to step up. After a year and a half in the program, and with a huge current need, it's fair to wonder if they're ever going to be able to help if they can't make it on the field given the current situation.
Gigantic game for Tyquan Lewis. On the other side, Tyvis Powell has been the primary goat on two ridiculously long Hoosier runs in consecutive seasons.
The sideline shots of Wilson ... good Lord, that's bad enough when they do it all the time in college basketball. That's the kind of act that a lot of fans consider "coaching," but then you get a decision like a fake punt from the 20 yard line.
Maryland seems to be completely hopeless -- no weapons on offense and glacier-slow on defense. Anything next than complete domination next week will have me concerned.
