The number four ranked Badgers set the dogs on the Hoosiers right away and never looked back. The only score came from a Stephen Houston 67-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Houston did have himself quite a game as he ran for 135 yards on 19 carries but even that is a bit skewed as you take away the outlier run of 67 yards and he only ran for 3.8 yards an attempt. Not good but not bad either. So by far the best performance from a Hoosier today can be described with a great big "meh". Hopefully this does show that Houston could be capable of great things against lesser competition and when you’re playing the fourth ranked Badgers, everything out there is lesser competition.
Next up the Hoosiers have to head to a struggling Iowa where they have had some recent success in making it a game. Right now as a fan of Hoosiers football that is all you can really hope for. In every game they have just looked overmatched on an individual basis and that isn’t going to fix itself this year. Much like the position the baskeball team was in for the last few years, this team just needs better talent. The guys that are there have given a fantastic effort but it just isn’t enough in the Big Ten and would be a struggle in many lesser conferences as well.
