Indiana Cheap Womens Jerseys Hooisers Football Preview 2012

15. září 2012 v 9:56
Kevin Wilson's first season as head coach of Indiana is something he wants to immediately forget because they had an appalling 1-11 record and 0-8 mark in the Big Ten. The Hoosiers were only competitive when they played Penn State and Purdue, everyone else in the conference blew them out by at least 14 points. An improvement is definitely a possibility, but it may not show in the win-loss column in 2012. OffenseThe Hoosiers ranked 10th (101st nationally) in the conference in scoring last season with 21 .Cheap Womens Jerseys. 4 points/game. They ranked eighth in total offense (83rd nationally) with 360. 4 yards/game. They need to improve on those numbers if they want to at least be competitive in the Big Ten. Their passing attack is the one thing they truly rely on as they ranked fifth in the league with 199. 4 yards/game last year. They certainly hope to build on this unit in 2012. Sophomore quarterback Tre Roberson showed flashes last year while passing for 937 yards and rushing for 426. But the coaching staff might just be tempted to pick junior college transfer Cameron Coffman or freshman Nathan Sudfeld. Both players may be better suited to Seth Littrell's pro-style passing attack due to their bigger arms than Roberson. Coffman completed 61. 4% of his passes for 2, 244 yards with 21 touchdowns and six interceptions while leading Arizona Western Community College to the JUCO national title game. The running game was subpar compared to their Big Ten counterparts, but ranked a respectable 53rd nationally with 161. 0 yards/game .Cheap Kids NFL Jerseys. Leading their ground attack is Stephen Houston, who rushed for 802 yards and eight scores a year ago. Kofi Hughes is the team's top returning receiver, but the Hoosiers will need a deep threat to emerge on the outside. The offensive line was overmatched in nearly every game last season and it's likely that will see more of the same in 2012. DefenseIndiana's defense was atrocious last year. They finished dead last in the Big Ten in both total and scoring defense with 458. 7 yards and 37. 3 points allowed per game. Wilson is hoping that the addition of junior college players can instantly bring improvement. The JUCO transfer that has the team optimistic is Justin Rayside. The coaching staff is hoping that his arrival will bolster the front four. Senior tackle Adam Replogle returns as the team's top sack man, with four a year ago. Chase Hoobler is the leader of the linebacker corps and the team is counting on sophomore David Cooper and junior Jacarri Alexander to step up alongside him. Sophomore safety Mark Murphy and junior cornerback Greg Heban proved their worth to the team as they finished second and third in stops. However they must improve their coverage skills .Cheap NFL Nike Jerseys. They were part of a unit that picked off just five passes last year and allowed 26 touchdowns strikes through the air. Big Ten Leaders Prediction: 6th PlaceIndiana's first three games will give them the opportunity to go 3-0 when they face Indiana State, Massachusetts and Ball State. But they may not win another game the rest of the way. Their winnable conference games (against Northwestern, Illinois, Penn State, Purdue) all come on the road, which makes them that much harder to win. They also have chance to win against Iowa at home, but the Hawkeyes are also a tough out whenever they match-up. Home games against Michigan State, Ohio State and Wisconsin may prove to be too much of an obstacle to overcome.
