Eyeing IU

The opponent's view

Here's what Illinois coach Ron Zook said about Indiana during his weekly news conference.

"Indiana's offensive scheme is a high tempo (offense). They're not going to let you rest; they're going to screen you to death. They do a lot of things that are going to cause you some issues," he said. "They're going to try to out-number you. If you look at the Penn State game they got 22 personnel and just pounded it on them a little bit and ran the ball pretty well. But they're going to try to out-number you, whether it be - if you start to spread yourself out, then they're going to count the numbers and run the football. And if you get boxed in there too much, then they're going to throw the screens and they run every kind of screen that they make. "And as I said, tempo, so there ain't a lot of time to think about what's going on. You're going to be going fast. Defensively, they don't pressure a lot, but (they play) a lot of man coverage. That's how they get their extra people in the box is playing bump - man, a lot of press man and they play some press quarters as well. But they're going to load the box and put a lot of pressure on their corners and we're going to have to be able to protect; we're going to have to be able to block."
