2009 Indiana Football Spring Preview

Hey Hoosiers.  We over at The Rivalry, Esq. just put up our 2009 Indiana Football Spring Preview.

A few notable excerpts:

Overall

[T]here are three things that coach Bill Lynch needs to address this spring: energy, passing potency, and secondary...

On Offense

...To attempt to restore the chemistry to the passing game, Bill Lynch has moved Ben Chappell to the starting position at quarterback...

Compared to Lewis, Chappell has a stronger, more accurate arm -- 15 of his completions in 2008 were for 15 plus yards, and 7 sailed over 25 yards -- a feature Bill Lynch will use to force opposing coverages to play soft.

Lewis, curiously, just might end up being his top target.  He's officially been lining up at wide receiver in spring ball, a move Lynch hopes will better utilize his raw speed and athleticism.  (Still, count on seeing Kellen back behind center -- especially in goal line situations)...

On Defense

Overall seven players are moving from offense to defense:

The motivation for the switch is obvious.  Indiana got burned time after time last year in the backfield.  By loading up the secondary Lynch hopes to preventing opposing offenses from running away on big plays...

...Indiana's spring mission is clear: keep opponents from breaking out large point spreads by stacking up the defensive slate.
