I'll have to go back and see the exact situations, but I wasn't disappointed (in our running effort)," Lynch added. "I'm not so concerned with yards as with efficiency, and I thought Darius ran hard.

"The play put the Hoosiers in a second-and-30 hole. Chappell was up for the challenge. He completed passes of 18 and 29 yards the next two plays to wide receivers Terrance Turner and Damarlo Belcher. Two plays later, Chappell found Turner for a 16-yard touchdown."

"This year, though, the Hoosiers have a pair of targets at tight end. Red-shirt freshman Ted Bolser and fourth-year junior Max Dedmond combined for three touchdown catches in the first half on Saturday night as the Hoosiers notched a 35-20 victory over Akron despite a shaky tackling effort by the defense."

"Indiana staggered Akron (0-4) in the first half with the pass. Why? Because the Zips stacked their defense to stop the run and dared the Hoosiers to pass. "We’ll take what the defense gives us," Chappell said."

"In much the same manner as its first two wins in this still-young season, Indiana was neither greatly troubled nor wildly convincing in a 35-20 win over visiting Akron on Saturday night. With Michigan, the potential of facing Denard Robinson and the start of conference play looming, questions about tackling and the running game still loom."

"In two weeks we’ll know where Indiana football stands in the big picture. Heck, we’ll probably know by Saturday night. The Hoosiers host No. 20 Michigan in five days and travel to No. 2 Ohio State seven days after that. Hello, Big Ten; good-bye, nonconference patsies."

"If the NCAA is indeed serious about its proposal to ban early scholarship offers, Tom Crean is beating it to the punch. Indiana has picked up its second verbal commitment for the class of 2014, with forward Trey Lyles joining guard James Blackmon Jr. as in-state recruits deciding to become Hoosiers before even beginning their high school playing careers."

"It’s tough to fully assess Indiana because of its woeful competition, but two things are clear: the Hoosiers can sling it with the best of them, and their defense remains shaky. Get ready for a shootout this week as Michigan visits."
