Eyeing IU

  • Indiana State...then an off week
      Indiana’s 2014 season is just mere hours away from kicking off.
  • Hoosiers announce remainder of sked
    Indiana formally announced the rest of its schedule today, with the season opener on Nov. 14 against Mississippi Valley State. There is only one exhibition game: Indianapolis visits Assembly Hall for a glorified scrimmage on Nov.
  • Hoosier offense belongs to Sudfeld
    BLOOMINGTON – The shared journey is over. Indiana’s quarterback role belongs to one man, Nate Sudfeld.

Special teams battle

Indiana has some areas to address on special teams.

Wide receiver Tandon Doss is in line to replace Ray Fisher on returns. Doss actually had 25 kickoff returns last season, the most on the team, for 533 yards. He averaged 21.3 yards per kickoff return. He returned four punts for 44 yards (an 11 yard average).

"Doss is the natural guy," IU coach Bill Lynch said.

Mitch Ewald and Nick Freeland are battling for the kicking duties. Freeland went 14 for 25 on field goals last season.

"Ewald has to beat Freeland out," Lynch said. "Nick, for the most part he did pretty well. Mitch has to beat him out and in all honesty, he did not beat him out in the spring. It's even."
