  1. Been offline for a week. Missed the game. From the stats and write-up, looks like we did what we needed to do, no? Considering we gave up twice as many yards and more than 3x the points last year, looks like the defense did what it had to do.

    This is a glorified scrimmage, so unwise to draw any firm conclusions at this point. But there sure are some nice indicators here.

    When was the last time Indiana only threw the ball 18 times in one game? Dinardo era?

  2. We played well albeit against an undermanned opponent. Nonetheless, defensive fundamentals are improved significantly. Running game was impressive. Hey, a win is a win!!
