College football analyst Phil Steele named five Indiana players to his three midseason All-Big Ten teams. Quarterback Nate Sudfeld was named a first-teamer at his position. Wide receiver Cody Latimer, tight end Ted Bolser and cornerback Tim Bennett were named to the second team. Tailback Tevin Coleman was named to the third team.

Sudfeld has completed 61.5 percent of his passes for 1,604 yards and 13 touchdowns. Latimer leads the Hoosiers with 35 receptions for 544 yards and three TD’s. Bolser has 19 receptions for 206 yards and a team-high five touchdowns. Coleman has rushed for 557 yards and eight touchdowns. Bennett is tied for the IU team lead with 45 tackles, including 2.0 for loss. He has an interception and 14 pass break-ups, which puts him among the nation’s leaders.

  1. Well deserved honor for Nate. Now we wait to see if Wilson screws that up and plays Roberson too much. I think Coleman should be on 2nd team.

  2. I don’t have a problem with Nate’s selection; he’s done a fine job, but some of his numbers are a function of the offense he runs. Likewise, Mitch Ewald does not get a mention and he is probably best PK in the league, but does not get as many opportunities because of the offense that we run. Go Hoosiers!!

  3. I mean it is not all that unrealistic that Sudfeld could be a top tier B10 QB. Think Zak Kustok of Northwestern ten plus years ago. Kurt Kittner? Things happen. All I am saying is statistically if he holds up I don’t see why not. Wasn’t Chappell second team in 2010?

    Best,

  4. I completely agree with Lou4IU & BeatPurdue. Mitch Ewald just got totally disrespected. The guy is on the Groza Watch List for Pete’s sake. He’s on the verge of rewriting a good deal of the major kicking records at IU. Not to mention being a team leader and having a heck of a season. Don’t sweat Mitch, Hoosier fans know your value to this team and program. Go out and prove it again on Saturday. Go Hoosiers.

  5. Can’t believe Mitch Ewald wasn’t on any of these teams. Huge error in omitting him.

    Regarding Nate Sudfeld, perhaps his numbers are a function of the offense IU runs. The honor might be a bit premature though.

    I did notice that Purdue had two players listed, their punter and their kick return man. These two guys are most assuredly listed as a function of their team’s offense!!

    Go IU!

  6. Just one IU defensive player on the three Mid-Season All Big Ten Team. Just one of 36 players selected. Ouch! That pretty much sums up the problem.

    Anybody remember how many we had on last year’s mid-season list?
