Hey, remember exactly one season ago -- when this happened?
My how things change. With Indiana’s disastrous collapse down the stretch at Iowa and an Illinois win over Northwestern, the Hoosiers now sit tied with Ohio State in 12th place in the conference.
One spot ahead of, yes, Rutgers.
Indiana plays at Ohio State to close the season a week from Saturday, after a home contest against Northwestern and a trip to Purdue. If they lose all three, they’ll likely finish in solo 13th — which would of course be the worst finish position-wise in conference history. Thanks, new TV money!
