How has Indiana football done historically in bowl games?

How has Indiana football done historically in bowl games?

The Foster Farms Bowl will be Indiana’s 11th bowl game appearance. Let’s look back at the first ten. As Indiana gears up for its second straight bowl appearance, it’s time to look back at how they’ve done in past bowl games. Overall, the Hoosiers are 3-7 in their 10 bowl games. Let’s recap this mostly sad and incredibly familiar-sounding bowl history! 1968 Rose Bowl USC 14, Indiana 3 To this date, the first and only Rose Bowl appearance for the Hoosiers. To give you an idea of how weird the Big Ten was in 1967, Indiana tied atop the conference for first place with Purdue and...

Troy Williams scored a basket in the most Troy Williams way possible

Troy Williams scored a basket in the most Troy Williams way possible

It’s Good Troy and Bad Troy - all in one. Troy Williams started for three seasons for the Indiana Hoosiers. Along the way, he sometimes did good things and other times did bad things. Despite this reputation, I thought he was underappreciated while at IU, and I’m glad that although he went undrafted, he’s found a home in the NBA with the Grizzlies. Tonight in Memphis against the lowly Philadelphia Process-Trusters, Williams made a shot that has embodied his career thus far. Here, Troy gets the ball and enters the lane, then throws up a shot while falling to the ground. Of course, the...

Indiana 83, Southeast Missouri State 55: Three things we learned, I guess

Indiana 83, Southeast Missouri State 55: Three things we learned, I guess

Indiana beat a bad team! It was really boring, but that’s fine! It was sloppy at times, but you’ll have that when you’re packing lots of games in a short period of time before finals start at Indiana University. On a weird, sleepy Sunday afternoon in Assembly Hall, Indiana knocked off Southeast Missouri State 83-55 to pick up their 7th win on the season and 4th win in eight days. Rob Johnson paced the Hoosiers with 17 points, while Thomas Bryant added 7 points and 10 board after playing the first half without a single shot attempt. Here’s three things we learned. Rob Johnson, as he...

Indiana will play #19 Utah in Foster Farms Bowl

Indiana will play #19 Utah in Foster Farms Bowl

The Hoosiers are going to the Bay Area for a chance to win their first bowl game since 1991. After going to New York City last year, the Hoosiers will head west this year. Despite a push on social media for the Hoosiers to go to the Music City Bowl, Indiana has accepted a bid to play 19th-ranked Utah in the Foster Farms Bowl, held at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, which is about an hour outside San Francisco. This will be the first game for new Indiana head coach Tom Allen in his new role, after he was promoted on Thursday in the aftermath of Kevin Wilson’s dismissal....

Indiana vs. SIU-Edwardsville: THREE THINGS

Indiana vs. SIU-Edwardsville: THREE THINGS

A bit of a slow start developed quickly into a comfortable win for the Hoosiers. Indiana followed up a huge home win against North Carolina with a simple, no-frills butt-kicking of SIU-Edwardsville, by a score of 83-60. Let’s get to the Three Things. Effort, effort, effort After a big win you might worry about a letdown, and when IU started out 0-for-7 from the field, I have to admit that I started having flashbacks to Fort Wayne for a moment or two. But the Hoosiers only gave up 4 points during that stretch, and after Zach McRoberts hit a three and James Blackmon, Jr. hit a couple of...

Tom Allen is the right man to lead Indiana football

Tom Allen is the right man to lead Indiana football

Maintaining the recent progress and building on the successes of Kevin Wilson’s Indiana Hoosiers would be tough without the right guy. So it’s a good thing Fred Glass hired the perfect guy. Once the shocking news broke that Kevin Wilson and Indiana University would be parting ways, there was a lot of speculation as to the reasons why. But one thing there was not speculation about was who would be the head coach next season. After all, there was still so much to digest yesterday about how Wilson and the Hoosiers could possibly go their separate ways, still a bowl game to play, still an...

Why the Indiana Hoosiers should go to the Music City Bowl: The Definitive Guide

Why the Indiana Hoosiers should go to the Music City Bowl: The Definitive Guide

Can the bowl selection process be influenced by internet-based enthusiasm? It's time to find out. We here at Crimson Quarry often like to use this platform in much the same way one would use a megaphone and a rooftop. There are a lot of bad opinions on the internet, we have the privilege of amplifying ours. Every now and then, however, we come up with a good idea that we think can benefit the program we love along with its crazed fan base. It started with #IUFB4GAMEDAY which, while ultimately falling short, showcased the awesome power the average fan can wield with a Twitter account. So...

OG Anunoby exits UNC game with ankle injury, status unknown

OG Anunoby exits UNC game with ankle injury, status unknown

Amidst the hoopla of the Hoosiers’ win over UNC on Wednesday, the Hoosiers may have lost a star Indiana had a huge win on Wednesday night against North Carolina, but it came at the expense of losing OG Anunoby late in the game. Anunoby’s status is uncertain, and injury for that matter, is unknown following the game. However, Tom Crean speculated that it was a high-ankle sprain. Tom Crean doesn't have full medical evaluation on OG Anunoby, but believes he suffered a high ankle sprain.— Mike Miller (@MikeMillerHT) December 1, 2016 Anunoby poured in 16 points for Indiana, the last...

Big Ten Bowl Projections: THE INDIANA HOOSIERS ARE BOWL ELIGIBLE NOTHING ELSE MATTERS

GRAB A CRACKER CRUST PIZZA AND SOME DISGUSTING PUBLIC SHOES- THE HOOSIERS ARE BOWLING. INDIANA BEAT PURDUE SO BADLY THEY FELT COMPELLED TO GIVE THEM POINTS AT THE END OF THE GAME AS A GESTURE OF GOODWILL. WHAT DID THE REST OF THE CONFERENCE DO? CARNAGE REPORT: Ohio State beat Michigan, thanks to a controversial first down awarded in overtime on a 4th-and-shot run by JT Barrett. The giant argument that ensured basically proves how inconclusive the video was, meaning letting the call on the field stand was right. I now await the herd of Michigan Men who will upend my mailbox. Iowa destroyed...

James Blackmon Jr. questionable for UNC game

The shooting guard did not play in IU’s blowout win over Mississippi Valley State today. Here’s a quick game recap. As expected, Indiana won easily against Mississippi Valley State today, 85-52. It wasn’t a particularly notable game, as the outcome was never in doubt, but one notable thing that happened was that James Blackmon Jr. didn’t suit up for this one. Before the game, the Hoosiers announced that JBJ wouldn’t play due to a left knee injury, and afterwards, Tom Crean revealed that the junior shooting guard is still questionable for Wednesday night. Will Blackmon play...

The Hoosiers got embarrassed on national TV. How are they going to respond? GAME INFO / HOW TO WATCH: Who? #3/5 Indiana Hoosiers (3-1, #19 KenPom) vs. Mississippi Valley St. (0-7, #348 KenPom) When?

Indiana 26, Purdue 24: IU is bowl bound for the second straight season

The Hoosiers made it remarkably difficult, but in the end, are going back to a bowl game Indiana held Purdue to just one touchdown in the second half as their defense on Saturday bailed out an anemic Hoosier offense that shot itself in the foot all too often (scheduled tweet). No matter how it happen, the Hoosiers are bowl-bound once again. 1. Indiana is bowl bound The takeaway from this game is what was mentioned already, but the Hoosiers are going to a bowl. At the beginning of the season, the goal was clear: get to a bowl game and continue the momentum the program has built. The road...

Indiana to the Music City Bowl? These scenarios will help.

The Hoosiers need to beat Purdue before worrying about bowl scenarios. But, if you want to know what best helps Indiana this weekend, we got you. If Indiana’s able to knock off Purdue this weekend, they’ll head to a bowl game for back-to-back seasons for the first time since the early 90s. But where? That’s a different question. Depending on which bowl projections you’re looking at from which outlet, you’ll find Indiana ranging anywhere from Nashville to Santa Clara to Detroit when it comes to a bowl game. Much of that stems from (and this isn’t anyone’s fault, it’s hard to...

College Football Betting Guide: November 26, 2016

Recap Last Week: 11-5 Overall: 55-58-1 Last week’s effort got us right back in line for a shot at finishing the season in the black. Thanks to hitting the spread and the over/under in three games, there’s a wave of momentum to ride into rivalry week. Hoosier Special Purdue at Indiana (-20.5), O/U 64, 12:00 p.m. Here we are again. One win away from a bowl game, lowly Purdue standing in the way. To me, there’s no question the Hoosiers get it done and take a huge step as a program in reaching a second consecutive bowl game. But 20.5 points? That’s a huge line. Indiana is 5-6 against...

Purdue Boilermakers at Indiana Game Preview: Hoosiers look for fourth straight Old Oaken Bucket

On Buckets and Bowls: Try to enjoy Indiana's journey, it will be a long one.

The Old Oaken Bucket had been the only thing of significance Indiana regularly competed for. But for the second year in a row, the Hoosiers needs their rivalry trophy for admission to the postseason. So it comes to this ... again. Kevin Wilson has guided the Hoosiers to the threshold of bowl eligibility for the second consecutive season, needing only to dispatch of a somehow-even-worse-than-last-year Purdue squad in the final game of the regular season to achieve something that this program has rarely seen. I'm going to take a minute to drink that in, if you don't mind. You can be...
