IU lost to Maryland in football, and things suddenly don't look so great for the 2017 Hoosiers. We break down some of the problems that Indiana encountered in this game, talk about the self-inflicted wounds that IU keeps dealing with, and ponder the state of the program as it looks down the barrel of another potentially disappointing campaign. We talk specifically about passing game decisions, the disposition of Richard Lagow, why the problem isn't IU's defense OR offense, and why IU's fan suppport isn't the problem with the program.
We focus our attention on a pretty-darn-close-to-must-win game at Maryland, as IU attempts to shake off an 0-4 start to the Big Ten season. Galen is joined by Punt John Punt's Michael Rayome, who gives us an advanced statistical breakdown of Indiana's offensive woes, Maryland's approach to the game, and what the Hoosiers should focus on. Then Galen is joined by IU beat writer Mike Miller of the Bloomington Herald-Times, who is already in Maryland enjoying some crab cakes. Mike discusses some of the issues with the offensive approach for IU in the past couple of games, gives us an injury update, and gives his outcome prediction for the contest.
