While Indiana football suffered another loss to a top-25 opponent, the tides are turning for the Hoosier football program. Auston and Jacob break down a loss to Penn State in which Indiana outplayed a top-25 Big Ten opponent on the road but shot itself in the foot with a host of mistakes in every facet.

Auston gives his experience in Beaver Stadium before the two talk about the game, the mistakes, the missed opportunities and why all of that has both of them optimistic about what the immediate future holds for Indiana. Yet again, the two praise Peyton Ramsey as he continues to shed every narrative about him while also giving kudos to David Ellis and Ty Fryfogle.

Then, they turned their attention to Michigan and a golden opportunity. With the Wolverines down this season, coming off one rivalry game and on the heels of another, Indiana has its best chance in years at upsetting Michigan. The two talk about the Wolverine team, Shea Patterson and how the sides match-up before debating whether Whop Philyor’s availability is necessary to pull off an upset.

After breaking down everything Indiana football, Jacob talks about the two stressful Big Ten Tournament games that the Hoosiers won over Maryland and Michigan to capture the program’s 10th double. The two then look at the daunting NCAA Tournament draw handed to the team with rematches against Kentucky, Notre Dame, Maryland or Michigan all possible.
