    I gotta say that the D looked dare I say...good for a decent stretch against Virginia? They were active and hitting hard.

    It's a work in progress, but Wilson seems to be slowly but surely changing the culture.

    Also, I thought the whit ehelmets were atrocious.

    The white helmets needed red stripes. They were too plain jane. Also, Edward Wright-Baker kills Wilson's playcalling. Just a horrendous passer.

    I was really encouraged by the energy the players and fans showed all game, even when we were down 21. They were psyched up.. Unfortuntely the end result wasn't in our favor. Quite a few things need to improve but the team does have some real promise in them.

    EWB was driving me insane missing the deep ball. I love the mobility he brings and i think he will be an asset in the future but Wilson has a lot of work ahead of him with EWB if he is going to continue to be the QB for this team. Its not unfixable, Wilson is a good coach for QBs as well so thats promising. Also the defense looked good at times, they were just put in bad spots by the offense at times. Still needs to continue improving, and i think one reason they played relatively well was because the energy the team and fans had at the game.. That really energizes a defense and makes them fly to the ball, so i expect drops in performance when they are on the road but it is still a good sign.

    Overal, even though they lost, as long as the team keeps their head up i think it was a game full of positives, it showed some things that they need to work on and improve on and it also showed that they can overcome some adversity and that they do have the skill it takes to compete and win, like Wilson is trying to instill into them.

    Btw, has anyone heard anything new about Gary Harris? I know he has a scheduled visit with IU on 10/15/2011, but have no clue which way he may be leaning, anyone have any light on the subject?

    This is the Mr. Basketball award. It follows a pretty simple template. One that he does not check off many pre-requisites on.

    First win of the Kevin Wilson era. Anybody see it who has reactions?

    Heard of the record - setting penalty mark.

    Oh well, it's a win.

    The win is nice, but man those penalties have got to go. You won't win a single B1G game if you are penalized anywhere near that much.

    I actually think there are a few winnable games in the B1G this year for IU. They don't play Nebraska, and the only other team that is top notch is Wisconsin, which has a history of skull-****ing us. Penn State looks bad and they play at The Rock--very winnable game. Ohio State looks very mediocre, although we play them in Columbus. Still, it's not an automatic L like it has been in the past. Illinois is ranked and just beat Arizona State, but I still don't think they are very good. Iowa has looked shaky and we usually play them tough. Northwestern at home on Homecoming/Halloween weekend is winnable. Purdue is at home and they suck. Basically what I'm saying is that if we can correct some of these errors and improve on the fly under Wilson that we could potentially make a bowl game or at least be in the conversation. Will it happen? I doubt it, but it's possible.

    I think the fact that there has been improvement on a week to week basis is the big key here. We never saw that with Lynch.

    Northwestern and Purdue look like the only games which are even remotely winnable. And Northwestern should be a lot better than they showed against Army.

    I don't see any conference wins for IU or Purdue until the final week when we'll see which team sucks more.

    I guess I'll pick IU to win since it is in Bloomington but it's really a toss-up.

    Penn State is winnable. Iowa is winnable. Not saying we will win them, but I think we can.

    IU isn't poorly coached, either.

    Granted, it's only been 3 games, but having major game management errors in two and setting a record for penalties in the third doesn't point to a well coached team.

    A new coach playing a ton of underclassmen (and true freshmen), you will have that. I don't really know what you are talking about with the major game management errors in two of the games. Passing up on the field goal I assume is one, but hindsight is 20/20. At the time he went for it, the team needed a spark. We were getting killed and weren't moving the ball well on offense. The final score says we lost by 3 and we passed up on a sure thing field goal, so obviously he made a huge tactical error. I watched that entire game, I wanted him to go for it and thought it was the right decision at the time.

    Dusty Kiel came in and looked a lot better than ****** Wright Baker. We keep digging ourselves in holes to start games. That needs to change. This team still sucks. North Texas is a bad football team.

    Why are we surprised this football team is bad? The talent is terrible. We all knew this would be a bad year regardless of who the coach was.

    Who is surprised that they are bad? I'm surprised by how bad they are. North Texas is one of the worst teams in FBS and they completely dominated us for most of that game. If you watched the game, it was a lot worse than the final score indicated.

    Ya, i was watching the game by myself on ESPN3 and i still felt embarressed to be a IU fan while watching the game.. Just totally looking outmatched against such a bad team, in their first Big Ten game ever.. I just hope Wilson sticks with us. I think he is special, and will really help our program.

    Even though it takes away our Mobility at QB, I am all for seeing what Dusty can do when hes the starter, hes the only reason we had a close shot at the very end of the game. EWB and crew played terrible. Granted they were without their best playmaker in Belcher.

    I don't want cdash to think I'm pissing in his cheerios but.......

    IU coach Kevin Wilson: Running back Darius Willis' 'career is basically over'

    Anyone hoping that Darius Willis will be back in action for Indiana this season may want to think again.

    In fact, Willis’s IU career may be over. IU coach Kevin Wilson made that comment during Tuesday’s weekly press conference.


    Willis has been out since the fourth game of last season with a knee injury. Wilson said he is not able to practice because of the injury and said the team is exploring petitioning the Big Ten for a medical hardship waiver.


    “We’re in the process of putting that into place but his career is basically over,’’ Wilson said.


    Wilson’s announcement comes on the heels of a report this weekend that Willis participated in a pro wrestlingmatch in Bloomington while his IU teammates were in Denton, Texas to play North Texas. The Infinity Pro Wrestling event was held at the National Guard Armory in Bloomington.


    According to a report by the Indiana Daily Student, Willis executed a “flying shoulder tackle’’ during the match.


    IU had no comment on the report.


    Wills was the runner-up for the 2007 Indianapolis Star Indiana Mr. Football award.

    Too funny.

    Probably one of the most disappointing people in the history of IU football and that is really saying something.
