Cleaning Up the Mess

Recommended Posts

Mods, feel free to move this to the game thread if needed, but this is the one remaining thorn in my side relative to Tom Allen.  Talent is there or getting there.  Effort is absolutely there.  Depth is getting there.  Execution and game plans are obviously improving.  But....,this is huge.  The mental and discipline sides really need to get cleaned up.

Indiana is 89th of 130 in D1 football in terms of penalties per game

Indiana is 120th of 130 in terms of penalty yards per penalty (WAY too many "big" and costly penalties; many of which are mental)

Indiana is 112th of 130 in terms of penalty yards per GAME

Indiana is 122nd of 130 in terms of 1st downs given up by penalty.

Some IU blog dude on Twitter just argued that Indiana is one of the least penalized teams in the Big Ten, which verified for me that "journalists" know absolutely nothing and make up most of what they write.  This is a pretty good resource if anyone's interested.   https://www.teamrankings.com/college-football/stat/penalties-per-game
