    I wasn't planning on faulting Wilson for much this year, after all, not his kids, can't handle his system, all that stuff. I figured regardless of the W/L record the only thing you could really take away about him from this year is his in game management.

    Soooo...passing up that FG? C'mon.

    What cdash? A Hope bash? Have at it, I'm certainly no fan. I expect (relative) big things out of IU and Wilson in the future, just hope that wasn't a harbinger.

    Wilson? There isn't much for him to work with there right now...and I am not one to defend IU...ball state came out pumped IU and got them. I think next year (if Wilson Isnt coaching for his alma mater in north carolina) you will see another steadied improvement.

    No disagreement from me. Seems like he'd make a kick *** high school coach though.

    Our lines are really, really bad. And Wright Baker didn't blow me away either. But how much time did BSU's QB have last night? Crazy.

    Coach Lembo came to bsu and has really empasized the oline. I think all the recruits for next season so far are linemen. Maybe not all but most of them.

    Our offensive line was bad and needs time to gel. But they aren't going to be horrible this year. They have to get used to an entirely new scheme. Much more trapping, pulling and overall downhill running that they didn't see with the Lynch spread.

    -Note- The O-Line future, in my opinion, is fairly bright. Recruits like Jacob Bailey are tailor-made for this offense. Not to mention, because of a lack of depth this year, up to 2 true freshman OL and 3 redshirts will receive work. Bernard Taylor has the physical tools already, and some of the others are athletic, if they still need to put on weight. Remember, Ralston Evans, a true freshman that impressed in spring ball and would have likely started at Guard tore his ACL this summer.

    The defensive line has an even bigger change in philosophy. They are no longer playing gaps as much as they are tying up linemen for the backers. I don't know how they are going to improve, I only know that they must. Darius Johnson, our best pass rusher...and likely best lineman missed last game for an undisclosed reason. If he returns, it will help.

    And that was EWB's first start, and first action really outside of mop up minutes. He had happy feet, didn't have a good feel in the pocket and had a couple very poorly thrown balls. Though, he never got a chance to get into a rhythm because Ball State dominated T.O.S. I expect the quarterback play to improve the most throughout the season as he gets more comfortable.

    Couple things to note:

    You are never as bad/good as you look.
    The biggest improvement should happen between the first and second game.

    Like the white helmets a lot!

    Unfortunately, it can't cover up the fact the Wright-Baker just doesn't throw the ball well - inaccurate, lacking touch.

    I guess I'm no asking for Kiel, but the offense just looks terrible.

    Defense...well I feel sorry for them.

    IU got hosed on the non-safety call.

    EWB has missed at least three open guys on deep throws.

    The play-calling is ultra conservative. Now I know why. Wright-Baker can't throw for ****.

    Where would this rank on the all time wins? Obviously not the biggest win by any stretch, but with IU being IU, and coming back and punching a real school in the mouth that's still pretty big to me.

    I will give credit for the enthusiasm, tenacity, and at least some signs of life from the D.

    Perez looked decent. EWB is not without some potential, but he will have to overcome and or improve his limitation as a passer somehow. Yes, he can make some throws, but he's inconsistent, can't throw the deep ball well, and demonstrates no ability to make the touch throw.

    It's really a game you shouldn't lose. Otherwise, it's still the same old IU cycle - finding ways to lose even games that you seem to be in control of.

    I would say - and this is no excuse for IU's choking this away in the last 2 minutes - they really should have had five more points on the scoreboard in this one.

    The failed fake on the FG - second time in two weeks Wilson elects to eschew an almost given 3 - is on IU...coaching. The sack that was called a safety, then revised and spotted at the one, was on the officials.

    True...Rocco's on the one when the first contact is made by the defender. But, the replay clearly shows the hit immediately jars the ball loose. The QB is bobbling it as he falls back into the endzone, where he finally secures it at the defender finishes the tackle.

    Isn't that contact, loss of possession, resecuring possession in the end zone? By that same logic, the nightmare EWB sack at the end of the game shouldn't have been change of possesion. QB is down at very first contact.

    EWB was obviously a strip and change of possession simultaneous with the tackle. The zebras just jagged us on the non-safety. Apparently there was also a lot of confusion on their part as to whether that play was reviewable. I'm unclear whether it was ever reviewed at all, but the original call on the field was a safety, so I don't know how or why it get's changed.
