Very few depth chart changes

Indiana’s depth chart just came out and there’s virtually no change from last week. The only differences are that redshirt freshman running back Darius Willis moved up to second-string and cornerback Donnell Jones is listed as the starter now that he’s finally played a game. The rest of the depth chart follows.

  1. Good news about Willis. Looks like he’s gonna get more touches and get the chance to show what he can do. If he’s as good as we hope he’ll be No. 1 well before the season is out.

  2. Not having players lost to injuries certainly has lead to the improvement that continuity for this program needs for success. Injuries are chipping away at Michigan over the past 2 weeks so they will have to play some reserves. It could benefit us more than we think. I know we will benefit from Jones and Willis getting more PT. The offense really needs for Chappell to have a strong error free game. That team up north won’t be as prepared or as high for us as they were for ND.

  3. As I’ve said before, the difference of this team and years past is the talent level and how IU’s talent is distributed across the team. Looking at the 2 Deep, Indiana has about 9 legit NFL players on the squad and many of them on Defense. Kirlew, Middleton, Black, Mayberry, Fisher, and Thomas. Nick Polk may be on that list as well.

    Saffold, Pagan, and Saxon could start for any Big Ten team and Pagan has a chance to be real special, especially if he continues to work hard in the offseason. Willis may be the best back Indiana’s had since Dunbar and Doss looks like a playmaker.

    Everyone, it is very hard to one games, even harder when you don’t come from a culture of winning like Indiana. But, the best thing is Indiana has gotten better each week and if you continue to do that, than Indiana will be competitive and win ball games.

    We shouldn’t diminish our competition; Western Michigan was a bowl team last year, and Akron had us playing on their field. Good Wins and this team doesn’t even look like the same team that barely beat Eastern Kentucky.
