    Indiana may have slipped in the back door in terms of qualifying for a postseason bowl appearance in the 2015 season but in my opinion this was a bowl bid well earned by this Indiana football team. Here is my take.

  5. Analysis: Plenty of blame to go around in most recent debacle

    Just when you think you've seen it all with Indiana football, Rutgers happened on Saturday. A 25-point lead just over 20 minutes to play is squandered and another Indiana football season is in jeopardy of heading south. Here is my take on the 55-52 setback.

  7. Analysis: Once again, it's all about the QB position for the Hoosiers

    Nate Sudfeld didn't play in Saturday's 29-7 loss at Penn State. Zander Diamont suffered a shoulder injury in the third quarter and didn't return and Danny Cameron played the final quarter and a half. But the reality is for IU to be a legitimate bowl team this season, Sudfeld has to get healthy and lead this offense.

  8. Analysis: Will IU have Sudfeld and/or Howard versus Penn State?

    It's the million dollar question as Indiana travels to State College to take on Penn State: Will the Hoosiers have Nate Sudfeld and/or Jordan Howard? It could easily be the difference between opening the season 5-1 or 4-2.

  9. Analysis: Was that the same defense we saw against Southern Illinois?

    If Indiana's defense can clean up a few things, most importantly not giving up the big play, and the Hoosiers can play with the intensity they showed on Saturday this team could win a lot of games.

  10. Analysis: The significance of a 4-0 start

    No member of the current Indiana University football team was alive the last time IU was 4-0 in football. That should put the feat in perspective all by itself.

  11. Sunday Morning Quarterback: Western Kentucky

    'Here we go again' has been a bad phrase for IU football fans for decades. All of a sudden 'Here we go again' has a different meaning for the 2015 Hoosiers.

  12. Analysis: One last look before WKU

    If Indiana could get to 3-0 after today, the reality that it would only need to win three of its final nine games to become bowl eligible would be significant. Lose today and the same old Indiana football talk will rear its ugly head once again.

  15. Sunday Morning Quarterback: What did you think of IU's clock management in the final minute?

    Indiana elected to score quickly with first and goal at the 1 in the final minute Saturday with the score tied at 41. Right call? Wrong call? What do you think? In my week Sunday Morning Quarterback feature, I give my take ... and it may not be the popular one.

  17. Analysis: Is it too soon for Antonio Allen to be thinking about football?

    It has only been a little over two months since Antonio Allen was dismissed from the IU football team following his arrest on charges of dealing methamphetamine, heroin and cocaine. But now we learn that Allen will transfer to Indiana State and play football for the Sycamores. Here's my question: Is all of that too soon?

  18. Analysis: The hunt for a 4-0 start

    The formula for Indiana to get to postseason play has always been simple: Win your four non-conference games, go 2-6 in the Big Ten and you'll be playing football beyond the Old Oaken Bucket game. But that 4-0 non-conference mark has been much more difficult than you would think. In the last 20 years, IU has only won all of its non-conference games three times.

    With one wide receiver already lost for the season with an ACL injury (J-Shun Harris), the one player that everyone in the media wants to know about is junior college transfer wide receiver Camion Patrick and what the hold up is for him being cleared academically.

    There continues to be talk that Indiana and Louisville may be entering into an annual non-conference series, possibly beginning as early as this season.

  22. Analysis: Is Kevin Wilson on the hot seat?

    I keep reading comments that people believe that Indiana football coach Kevin Wilson is on the hot seat in his fifth year with the Hoosiers. No winning seasons in the first four and a dismal Big Ten record have IU fans a little bit restless. Here's my take on the topic.
