    Thank you for the insight and that's great to hear. If I recall you guys had a really good corner/safety combo that season too?

    Did Cam Jones go down in the last game?

    Eh, he came in with a very glowing view on his team and a few of us (me being the biggest offender) pretty much told him IU sucks.

    Should've just discussed the game instead of dissecting his team to let him know why we think they aren't good.

    I mean a few comments were crazy... such as the Chase Young comment and them playing vanilla against Ball State, but I could've been easier on him.

    Another IU fan stopping by. Hoping for a good injury-free game and *maybe* a big upset, but we'll obviously have to execute extremely well. And that might not be enough if OSU plays lights-out.

    This IU team probably has the most talent depth and potential that I've seen in 20 years following the team, but we may be a year away from being able to upset a Michigan/OSU/Penn State. Penix doesn't have a lot of game experience against this level of competition (he played a quarter or two last year against Penn State before he got hurt) and we're in the first year of a new offensive scheme. A lot of solid/good Big Ten players but I don't think there's one guy at the offensive skill positions that's enough of a match-up problem to really open things up.

    I think we'll do okay pass-blocking. Run game hasn't been a strength so far.

    We have a fair amount of experience but this will be the first or second big game for a lot of our more talented players, especially on defense. D-Line has been improving but is a question mark in terms of being able to get pressure. Back seven is the caliber where they could get to a Top 25 defense if we had a pass rush, but they've been sloppy tackling early. Deeper team on defense than I can remember.

    Kicking has been excellent so far. We'll see how the coverage units and return units do against a much, much better opponent. I really like David Ellis (true freshman) as a returner.

    I'll leave with with this Wannstedt hot take from BTN last night (that I don't agree with). But to even go there says a lot about Penix (who is a pass-first QB).

    Not sure what the hell this DC thinks him talking trash will accomplish?

    Keep chatting though... because that and being dropped in the polls is going to piss some people off on our team.

    Just dumb and if I'm Allen I'm furious right now. With it being a noon game, at their place, and them being historically not great we could've came in sleep walking. Not so much now.

    charlohiottean So much potential…

    I just got to the line, “One eerie November afternoon in 1998…” and realized where the story was going. Not sure I want to finish it.

    Once more into the breach I go.

    Edit:Thanks Ramzy

    Indiana Defense Expects to Take Advantage of Ohio State’s Offense


    The Ohio State offense has not gotten off to the same start it did a year ago when the Buckeyes were averaging 64.5 points and 650 yards of total offense after the first two games.

    But that doesn’t mean things are on the downswing.

    Ohio State is currently averaging 43.5 points per game and 488.5 yards of total offense. They have the most balanced offense in the Big Ten, with 51.9% of their offense coming from the running game and 48.1% coming through the air.

    There are currently three Buckeyes with 100 yards rushing and two over 100 yards receiving. Seven different players have scored touchdowns in two games.

    These are all numbers that pose problems for opposing coaches, but Indiana defensive coordinator Kane Wommack has seen some things that make him think his Hoosier defense will be up to the task, and most of it centers around new Buckeye starting quarterback Justin Fields.

    Fields has not yet looked like Ohio State’s weak spot, as he is currently completing 76.0% of his passes and sitting at second in the Big Ten’s pass efficiency rankings. He has also added 103 yards rushing in two games and only three players in the conference have more rushing touchdowns than he does (3).

    Indiana’s defense held Eastern Illinois quarterback Johnathan Brantley’s mobility in check last week, allowing him just nine rushing yards. But this Saturday is a different challenge altogether.

    This is the biggest start of Fields’ career. This will be the best defense he’s faced and it will be his first time starting on the road. There are a number of reasons for him to have concerns, but now with two starts under his belt, his confidence grows by the day.

    The Hoosiers definitely understand the problems that Fields poses, and yet they see some problems that they will pose for him as well.

    “I think for what we do defensively we’ve always had to deal with that,” Wommack said of Fields’ ability to run. “We’ve always had to build ourselves schematically around stopping the quarterback run game. I think they do some nice things in taking care of their quarterback and at the same time, getting him in some one-on-one matchups. They do a nice job of that.

    “From our perspective, there’s some things that we feel like we’re probably going to be able to take advantage of. And frankly, every time that guy has his hands on the ball, we’re going to try to get some pretty good shots on him.”
