SANTA CLARA, CA – DECEMBER 28: Quarterback Richard Lagow


2016: 4th in BIG Ten East

2017 Prediction: Hoosiers also fall to finish 5th.

Kevin Wilson is no longer a Hoosier and is now a member of The Ohio State Buckeye coaching staff. That simple fact hurts Indiana.

Wilson gave Hoosier fans an Indiana offense that was built for the future. Indiana beat Michigan State and also tested Ohio State in 2016, earning themselves a bowl game bid.

This season will be a test for Indiana, and I think they might just have too much to deal with. Wilson’s departure was not expected and leaves the Hoosiers in a spot where the goal is simply not to regress.

I can’t see them reaching that goal so prove me wrong Indiana. I don’t think this year will be better than the last and their fan base will just have to wait for basketball season to roll around!
