Hoosier Morning

1. HOOSIERS HQ
IU put away Florida International on Saturday night, thanks to, gasp, its defense, Mike wrote.

That defense Jameel Cook(ed) FIU’s goose with the game-clinching interception return for touchdown, Andy wrote.

The offense is balanced, the defense is opportunistic and the return of Darius Latham and Ralph Green paid dividends for the Hoosiers, Mike writes.

No. 10 IU men’s soccer saw its scoreless streak against Penn State reach 380 minutes in a 1-0 loss Sunday, we reported.

Indiana women’s soccer tied Ball State, while the men’s and women’s golf teams were also in action, we reported.

2. IT’S INDIANA
Turnovers spelled doom for Florida International, David J. Neal of the Miami Herald writes.

Offseason attrition has thinned the IU basketball frontcourt, but how well do the Hoosiers still stack up, asks Zach Osterman of the Indianapolis Star.

Indiana will reportedly play Bellarmine in a men’s basketball exhibition on Nov. 9, Rick Bozich of WDRB.com reports.

Former IU defensive lineman Bobby Richardson answered his dad’s question in high school by making the New Orleans Saints’ roster, Joel A. Erickson of the Baton Rouge Advocate writes.

Former Hoosier Rodger Saffold was among the St. Louis Rams who took exception to Russell Wilson’s tweet, then handed him a loss on Sunday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post Dispatch writes.

  1. I’ll expect a lot of nickle packages against WKU and if things get tough, dime. Hope nickle works as dime is tougher to get everyone thinking the same and in the right spot. A scenario Dutra would be welcomed to ramrod. WKU lists 4 300lb. – + on the DL, 8 on the OL. I look for the OL and Howard to have more success than with SIU or FIU. I don’t think we’ll fear their run game as that is not their preferred weapon and they lost their top back to injury Thursday night. We’ll probably see x-Warren Central, x-Dayton and x-IU RB Anthony Davis haul the leather in a rotation.

  2. Ok, just caught the game late last night on replay after being away all weekend.

    I said I’d reserve judgement and implored others to do the same until after this 2nd game of the season.

    Well, I’ll let it loose. This team stinks right now. I just don’t understand it. On some plays they look like they can’t be beat by anyone. On others, they look like their playing an entirely different sport. The gaps and lapses in judgement and sporadic teamwork should be things that they’re way past by this point. Yet, it seems to define their play so far this season.

    Yay. We’re 2 – 0. Barely. Against, um, whom?

    They have a lot of talent on the roster. We’ll see if they can get their crap together and play as a unit that is greater than the sum of its parts. Especially on defense.
