    How did PSU only score 24 on us last week? This defense is AWFUL, and it isn't all because of talent. Their tackling just sucks.

    The tackling is brutal. It's like nobody taught them that arm tackles don't cut it. We are a very finesse football team.

    Our defense is so ****ing frustrating. I don't know what it would take to get Doug Mallory fired, but I'm willing to donate my non-vital organs to the athletic program in order to expedite the process.

    Kick-offs have been an adventure today. This team makes so many mistakes that just scream, "Poorly coached."

    This team is such garbage. Still waiting for that improvement Wilson supporters have been promising.

    Our offense really is good, they didn't even play that well and still put up points. The defense is just a disaster area though.

    Wait what? We are sitting at 3-3 with home games vs Purdue, Minnesota, and Illinois left, but since we lost @ Michigan State, there goes the bowl game? Is this sarcastic or serious?

    Bad game all around, and Tre Roberson needs to start, not sure why we kept Sudfeld in the game for so long

    Lets be honest we are significantly more likely to get upset by one of those teams than we are to upset one of our other remaining opponents. So in all likelihood our best case scenario now is 6-6.

    And since when could this team win 3 games they were supposed to win in a row?

    I don't think Tre needs to start. Sudfeld is the better QB, but when he doesn't have it and our offensive line isn't blocking, we need to be quicker to put Tre in the game. Sudfeld was awful today. Overthrows, underthrows, throws into the ground...not pretty. Tre looked really good though.

    Yeah my sunshiner buddy gave me that same speech about Minny, Illinois, and Purdue. I side with you. I have much more confidence in us to blow a winnable game than pull off an upset on the road.

    All I'm saying is, it's stupid IMO to write off IU from a bowl appearance when they only need 3 wins, and still have 3 more games that they should be favored In upcoming, eventually, they will win the games they need to win, and why not start this year

    Sudfeld is the better throwing QB, but I like the dimension that Roberson gives us with his legs, and I wouldn't say Roberson is a slouch when it comes to throwing the ball either, he can make most of the throws. Sudfeld didn't get a bunch of time today, but even when he did he seemed like he still couldn't make the throws, I just like Roberson over Sudfeld at this point, I think he at least deserves a chance

    It's not so much Tre that I don't like--it's the play calling when Tre is the QB that I don't like. Too much read option ****. Offense hasn't been the problem this year, so I don't see any reason to change things up.

    But, why are the most recent posts so negative IU football? Yea I understand we lost, but this was far from a win you go bowling lose you don't type of game. Michigan State was just the better team, and look at IU's 3 losses this year, Navy (looks like a pretty bad loss, I just don't think Indiana can handle that offense), Mizzou (6-0 with a win @Georgia today, they will now be ranked in the top 20, nothing wrong with that loss) and @ Michigan State (5-1 now and looks like they could be in the B1G championship game, again nothing wrong that this loss)

    It's not the losses, it's the consistency with the way we are losing these games. Watching the games is maddening and the defense and defensive schemes are horrible. The lack of fundamentals in regards to tackling is truly baffling. I don't buy the talent argument either--there is talent there, at least enough not to allow a horrible offense like Michigan State to run roughshod over us.

    Why would it be this year?

    And seriously when was the last time this team won 3 straight games in which they were favored. My gut would say during Lynchs first season.

    When was the last time we were favored in 3 big ten games? Probably quite a while, so that is a bit of an unfair comparison

    I agree the defensive coaching is a problem, and I agree that we do have some talented players such as T.J. Simmons, Tim Bennett, Antonio Allen, and Darius Latham. We are young on that side of the ball so that is probably part of the problem, but we certainly need better defensive play calling

    The fact we lose to the cupcakes we are favored against isnt helping your case at all.

    I guess my main frustration comes from how little actual improvement in the team we have seen from last year.

    If we can't beat three cupcakes we are favored against, why in gods name would we be able to beat three big ten teams we should beat.
