Indiana Football – bowl eligible and deserving of a heartfelt apology
October 28, 2019

I’m sorry.  I was wrong. My evaluation of Tom Allen as Indiana’s football coach has been proven wrong by the 6-2 record the Hoosiers have put together this season.  There is still work to be done, but 6-2 gives the Hoosiers bowl eligibility before Halloween for the first time since 1993.
