Franklin should be fired for passing the ball when up 12 with 4 mins to go allowing Indiana to have a chance at a comeback.

One of our worst games ever at so many levels. And to think we won.

Game SHOULD have been over a while ago...if only they run the ball 3 times when up 12 with 4 to go... Indiana would have run out of time a lot time ago.

yikes - what a game - or lack of it. I do not see this team beating Iowa, Michigan, or Wisconsin.

Well in my view, at a minimum, Rahne (offense), Corley (WR), and Gaillano (ST) all have some serious questions to answer. This team isn't getting better which is what you would expect from a young and inexperienced team. That points to coaching.

We all knew deep down that this would be a rebuilding year I just question what and how we are building with this staff right now.

Only watched 1/2 the game while I worked around the house.

-Polk drops to many balls, should be called a route runner not a receiver.
-Fake punt was wrong, psychologically it says we are worried. Then it seemed to have no chance.
-IU throwing on 4th and 1 was wrong
-Pass rush at the end was good
-Prevent defense at the end stunk, gave up a TD
-how many on sides kicks will we give up this year? 3 now? Could set a record.
-IU fans stink, empty stadium and they had a chance
-wasn't for turnovers and big returns we could have lost
-just because you take your guy down doesn't mean it's a hold. Especially if you are right in front of him and much stronger.
-just because helmets hit doesn't make it targeting.
-can we catch a punt?

Near as I can tell it actually does. The rule seems to be pretty strict and it doesn't seem to matter if it was an accident or you tried to avoid it. We've seen that a few times already.

Anyway, how many turnovers did we have in that game? 4? 5? It was something like that. You win the turn over battle by 3 or 4 TOs you shouldn't then be holding your breath the last 30 seconds of the game.

Btw, for all the grief we gave the D all game, they did come through at the end.
