COLLEGE FOOTBALL PREVIEW: #89 INDIANA

June 26, 2012

OFFENSE

The Hoosiers ranked in the top half of the Big Ten in one of the 17 statistical categories charted by the NCAA — passing offense. They were fifth. That was not enough to please Kevin Wilson, whose 1–11 team was the only team from a BCS league that failed to defeat an FBS opponent last season. Wilson knows that IU’s 55.8 percent completion percentage must improve by at least 12 percent, and the passing touchdown total of 10 has to double. Although Tre Roberson emerged as an average passer (57 percent) and solid runner (426 yards), he could lose his spot to either Cameron Coffman, a junior college transfer who excelled in the Spring Game, or freshman Nathan Sudfeld, because of their power arms.

The running game needs work, too, although seven of the top eight rushers return. Stephen Houston ran like a Big Ten back, averaging better than 5.0 yards per carry. He fumbled only once and gained more than 100 yards against Wisconsin, Northwestern and Purdue. D’Angelo Roberts will start practice as the backup, but don’t be surprised if freshman Tevin Coleman or transfer Isaiah Roundtree overtake him.
