Indiana Hoosiers (2002 - Pres)

Things are looking up for the IU football program and with 18 starters returning, football in Bloomington may not be just a way to pass time until basketball season.  There’s just one really big issue, DEFENSE. Indiana ranked 120th in total defense, 114th in scoring defense, 115th in rushing defense and 118th in pass defense….get the idea?  Even with those numbers, IU only fell short of bowl eligibility by one game.

Indiana can score and with 8 starters back, things appear to be in line for another explosive season. The QB battle is no longer a battle now that Tre Roberson has transferred to Illinois State. Nate Sudfeld is a pro-style QB who threw for 2,523 yards and 21 TD’s splitting time with Roberson. Indiana will have one of the top RB’s in the Big Ten with Tevin Coleman returning. Coleman rushed for 958 yards and 12 scores and missed three games due to injury. Sudfeld will have several new receivers to throw to after losing a combined 154 receptions, 2,155 yards and 22 TD’s. The only starter returning is Shane Wynn (133 career receptions). The O-line will be solid with five starters returning including LT Jason Spriggs, C Collin Rahrig and G Dan Feeney.

Now the bad news….the defense. There is a new DC, Brian Knorr, who will use multiple sets with a squad that returns 9 starters. DE Bobby Richardson, NT Ralph Green and DE Nick Mangieri are back up front. The linebackers return all three starters including Flo Hardin, TJ Simmons, and David Cooper. IU’s secondary will have a mix of veterans and young talented players including starters Tim Bennett, Michael Hunter and Mark Murphy. Watch for CB Rashard Fant to step in. He is very talented and aggressive. Even a small step forward by the defense will make Indiana a much better football team.

The schedule will be favorable early with games against Indiana State, at Bowling Green and a true test at Missouri. After the Missouri game, Indiana plays Maryland and North Texas. Now for the fun part….IU plays at Iowa, at Michigan and at Ohio State in the Big Ten schedule.

Indiana will be in a position to make it to a bowl game if their defense makes strides and we are talking about modest strides.  Just like last season, it may come down to the final few games to see if IU can finally take the next step.
