IU "sloppy" in loss

Jammie Kirlew said Indiana was sloppy.

Too many penalties (9 for 87 yards), too many turnovers (three) and too much Terrelle Pryor spelled doom for the Hoosiers. Pryor accounted for four touchdowns in the Buckeyes 33-14 victory.

"A team that good, you can’t give them anything. You have to be perfect on assignment and you have to avoid penalties," Kirlew said. "We didn’t do a good job of that and they took advantage of it."

IU snapped Ohio State’s scoreless streak with a second quarter touchdown. The Buckeyes had posted back-to-back shutouts coming into the game. But the offense could do little else. The running game never got in gear, finishing with 18 yards. And with the big deficit (24-7) at halftime, the Hoosiers were forced to throw. Ohio State was ready, finishing with three sacks.

Indiana survived the back-to-back tests that are Michigan and Ohio State with different results. It will be interesting to see what they take from the two games for the rest of the season.
