Hello Hoosier fans. Hedges is back after a long summer of football withdrawal. Exciting Hoosier football is right around the corner and I can stop sucking my thumb in despair and changed into clean underwear. It is time to start living again.
Today, I want to take a look at Hoosier openers. The Indiana St. Opener is just overt two weeks out. The game is a must win and a should win for the Hoosiers. Getting off to a good start is crucial. Let’s take a look at past years under Kevin Wilson:
2011- Loss to Ball Stat, 27-20
Location: Indianapolis, IN – IU Final Record, 1-11
2012 Beat Indiana State, 24-17
Location, Bloomington, IN – IU Final Record, 4-8
2013 Beat Indiana State, 73-35
Location, Bloomington, IN – IU Final Record, 5-7
Averages in opener for Wilson
IU Point Per Game: 39 PPG
Opponent PPG: 26.3 PPG
IU Yards per game avg: 486 ypg
Opponent yards per game: 347.3 ypg
So after a crushing defeat in year one to Ball State, the Hoosiers have rebounded nicely in opening games under Wilson. This year should push Wilson record to 3-1 in openers. Bowl game here we come! Please tune in for my look at the week that was and the week that is that starts the opening week of football season Aug. 31.
