Continuing Countdown to Season Opener at Memorial Stadium

Fall practice continues for the Indiana Football team as the season opener against the Sycamores of Indiana State is just 18 days away.

We’re continuing to monitor the progress during the workouts/practices and will provide you with our game by game predictions for the 2014 season next week.

Fall Practice Begins for 2014 Indiana Football

Today fall practice begins anew for the 2014 Indiana Football season in Bloomington. Expectations are high as a bowl berth is certainly in reach, which would be the first since 2007.

Junior QB Nate Sudfeld returns behind center to what could be the best offensive line in the B1G. Senior Shane Wynn anchors the WR corps and should have a major impact with the passing attack from Sudfeld. From a RB standpoint, Tevin Coleman is one of the most electrifying backs in the country. 

As it always does when it comes to IU’s bowl chances, the defense is going to be the key. If the group can even improve from “terrible” to “bad”, a bowl is certainly within reach. 

We’ll be back with our game by game predictions as fall practice moves forward but wanted to go ahead and wet the appetite for the upcoming season.
