The Mourning After: Ruminating on Indiana's loss to Wake Forest

The Hoosiers avoided a maddening non-conference loss last season but couldn't manage to repeat the feat this season. Where do the Hoosiers go from here? Ah, the unexpected non-conference loss, college football's most bitter liquor. After a first half that saw Indiana head to the tunnel with a 21-7 disadvantage that felt, at least to a certain extent, undeserved, the defense that had largely kept the Hoosiers in the game while the offense made error after error began to fatigue and crack. This culminated in a penalty-laden touchdown drive in which the visiting Demon Deacons were provided new...

Wake Forest 33, Indiana 28: Three Things

Injuries, bad breaks, and 5 interceptions the story as the Demon Deacons come into Bloomington and hand the Indiana its first loss. We will undoubtedly be discussing what exactly happened today throughout the week at Crimson Quarry. But, as always, right after the game is as good a time as any to start the conversation. Here are the three things that stood out as deserving of the initial reaction. The run game was a disaster without Dan Feeney and Dimitric Camiel. Devine Redding’s nation-leading six-game streak with 100 yards rushing was snapped without Feeney and Camiel paving the way...

The talented 2017 wing from Illinois will pick between Indiana and Villanova.

College Football Betting Guide: September 24, 2016

3-0 in over/under picks last week, it’s time to get back to even against the spread and build on that point total success. Last Week Record: 7-5-1 Best pick: It felt like Ohio State (-2) and the over (63) in Colorado-Michigan were the two easiest picks on the board last week. And that showed to be true. Ohio State rolled Oklahoma 45-24 and the Buffs and Wolverines hit the over with 13:16 left in the 3rd quarter. But those were so easy that I’m not sure they qualify as good picks. So for the best pick, I’ll go with Central Florida (+9.5) against Maryland. The Terps had rolled some...

HOOSIER FILM ROOM: Why Wake Forest could be Richard Lagow’s coming out party

To put up points against a Wake Forest defense with tremendous talent up front, the Hoosiers need Richard Lagow to have himself a day. Last week we took a look at how Dan Feeney makes the ground game go. The Hoosier definitely need Feeney back in the trenches this week against Wake Forest’s strong front seven. But the key to the Hoosiers get to 3-0 is probably Richard Lagow, making his 3rd career start for Indiana. But his inexperience is nothing to be afraid of this week. In fact, there are a couple reasons to think that Lagow could have his coming out party this week against the Demon...

Has the sports attendance bubble burst?

Kevin Wilson’s comments on Monday were justified, but do they reflect a nationwide trend? Earlier tonight, I was watching the Boston Red Sox play the Baltimore Orioles on TV. It’s a nice night in Baltimore - 79 degrees out, a little on the humid side, but overall not too bad. Both teams are in the hunt for the postseason. Great conditions for watching baseball in late September, I’d imagine. Should be a packed crowd at Camden Yards, right? Well, not exactly. Wednesday night skies over Baltimore. #MLB #Orioles (https://t.co/4AyvF71sHs + https://t.co/XYWW0e9wjD)...

Collin Hartman suffers non-contact knee injury during Indiana practice

This seems to be bad. A bad, late-day news dump from Indiana basketball this afternoon: Collin Hartman suffered a non-contact knee injury in practice. Injury news: IU announces Colin Hartman suffered a knee injury in a non-contact incident in practice #iubb— Sam Beishuizen (@Sam_Beishuizen) September 21, 2016 This, one could assume, is bad. It’s September and there's little reason for Indiana to release this information via late day press release if it wasn't a big deal. Hartman has torn his ACL previously in his career, though Indiana did not specify which knee was...

Four-star LSU commit Patrick Queen to visit Ole Miss, Nebraska, and Indiana

You read that right. One of the stars of LSU’s hyped 2017 recruiting class will take a visit to Indiana. You know Indiana football’s making strides as a program under Kevin Wilson. Those strides are starting to pay off on the recruiting trail. Scout.com confirmed this morning that longtime four-star LSU commit Patrick Queen is at least exploring his options and will take official visits to a couple of other schools. One of those schools is Ole Miss, a re-emergent recruiting power in the SEC and a name that should shock no one. Another is Nebraska, which is still Nebraska. The other...

SLACKCHAT: Who’s afraid of Wake Forest?

Your Hoosiers face their first power five opponent of the season this weekend. This week’s Slackchat mulls Dave Clawson’s 3-0 Demon Deacons — and whether you should be worried. This weekend Wake Forest comes to town, IU football’s first power five opponent of the season. But even though the ACC is A Real Conference, we’ve had this game pencilled in as a probable Hoosier win ever since Wake beat Tulane 7-3 in the season’s first week (that’s a four-quarter game, folks, not a rainout). This week’s SlackChat question, then: SHOULD WE BE AFRAID OF WAKE FOREST? Ben Raphel: Let me...

Kevin Wilson to Indiana fans: Stay until the end of the danged game

Indiana’s coach is tired of watching the stands empty well-before the game ends. He’s got a point. During his Monday press conference, coach Kevin Wilson had a message for the one element of Indiana University football he doesn’t really have any control over: the fans. His message? Stay for the whole danged game. “We played like our fans and left in the fourth quarter...We’ve got good fans. Those tailgates are still there. If you buy a good enough cooler, that stuff’ll stay cold for you. Let’s ride out the second half.” In addition to revealing himself as a Real YETI Guy,...

It’s time to blow up the Big Ten’s divisions

This week’s MOST THINGS ARE FINE would try to rationalize multiple losses to FCS teams and PJ Fleck, but that’s futile. Spend a moment to consider what leads a young collegian to throw his torso through a plate glass window in mid-September. This is stupid, overreactionary, we’ve been told — not by your mother concerned for your well-being and blood-letting, but by the Sports People. Things that happen early in seasons aren’t supposed to matter, and rationality should dictate that you should reserve judgment until later in said season. College football doesn’t allow for...

What would Indiana's all-time roster look like on 2K17?

With college basketball *kinda* making its way back to video games, IU should not be far behind if new teams are added soon. With the details of the college basketball download that has been added to the newly-released NBA 2K17 finally out today, Indiana cannot be far behind on the list of teams that are sure to be included if this idea grows in subsequent releases. So, let's help the powers-that-be at 2K headquarters with their research, and give a 13-man roster of IU alums that should appear when the Hoosiers are inevitably included among these teams. For my team, I chose players based...

B1G Bowl Game Projections: Three games in the books, who is smelling roses from a very far distance?

Week 4 is on tap! Who is bowling and who is stuck trying to get cigarettes out of the vending machine? It was a nervy week up and down the Big Ten, but mostly everyone averted complete disaster. Those who didn't know what they did. CARNAGE REPORT: Ohio State and Michigan State each went on the road and pummeled ranked foes in front of their own fans. Sparty got a little lazy after going up 36-7 but made it out of South Bend with a big win. OSU offered the Sooners no such opportunity. Michigan and Nebraska each found themselves losing to a Pac-12 squad in the first half and each bounced...
