LAST YEAR WE ALL AGREED WE’D END UP IN A BOWL GAME IN DETROIT BUT INSTEAD INDIANA ENDED UP IN NEW YORK WHICH IS JUST LIKE DETROIT BUT WITH MORE RATS IN THE DRYWALL OF YOUR $5,000-A-MONTH WILLIAMSBURG STUDIO

Ed note: Our 2016 Indiana football season preview rolls on today with everyone’s favorite portion of the fortnight… our yearly predictions post. Here is every Indiana football game, projected, analyzed, and vomited upon by every very dumb member of this staff. I refuse to write any sort of lede for this because it’s like almost midnight and I’ve written a bunch of stuff about golf and my back hurts and I just really wanna go to bed and you’re not even reading this anymore anyway. I could write whatever I want here because you’re already skimming this part. Harambe is dead and in hell where he belongs. See, you didn’t even notice that because you’re already reading the previous about the Wake Forest game.

Okay, let’s get to the picks.


Louisville v Florida InternationalPhoto by Joel Auerbach/Getty Images

Game 1: at Florida International University

ALEX ROBBINS: A year ago, this game would’ve scared me because Indiana still hadn’t proven that it could beat the teams their supposed to beat, even if they have to do it the way they did against Southern Illinois. This year, it scares me because the quarterback position is an unknown, unless Zander Diamont is back there, in which case it’s just frightening. But I’m going to give the Hoosier defense the benefit of the doubt here. They’ll be better this year. Hoosiers get a nice road win to start the season. 24-10, Indiana.

BEN RAPHEL: Indiana, 32-26. Closer than expected road win. Kevin Wilson sings along to Will Smith’s “Miami” in the locker room during the postgame victory celebration.

BRIAN FOX: Ron Turner makes Ron Zook look like a competent coach. IU by double digits.

JACOB RUDE: Nothing gets anyone more excited for college football than a Thursday night game on ESPNU against Florida International! I’m not going to pretend to know anything about FIU football other than Ron Turner being the coach and the team being bad. Nothing changing here. IU 40, FIU 21.

KYLE SWICK: Season openers have been dicey in the Kevin Wilson era. Last season was nearly derailed before it really got started when FCS Southern Illinois fell two yards short of knocking off the Hoosiers in Bloomington. This year, Indiana takes their show on the road to Parking Garage U and FIU Stadium, where several people will be present. Thursday night in Sweetwater is always a tricky event, as I’m sure some Conference USA teams have said at some point maybe. It’s a tougher task than an FCS opponent at home, but if Indiana wants to make a bowl game that absolutely can’t drop this game. Hoosiers over Panthers, 38-17.

THOMAS WACHTEL: We beat them last year, so I feel like I’m safe in assuming we’ll beat them again. Nothing’s changed with the team, right? also, R O N T U R N E R. IU, 31-17.

KYLE ROBBINS: It’s a season opener on Thursday on the road with a new quarterback. Don’t you dare think about touching that spread in this game. IU 28, FIU 24.

NCAA Football: Ball State at NorthwesternCaylor Arnold-USA TODAY Sports

Game 2: Ball State Cardinals

KYLE SWICK: Ball State has been a thorn in the Hoosiers’ side for far too long. One of my most vivid Indiana football memories is getting completely dismantled by the Cardinals in Memorial Stadium and then sitting in traffic for 45 minutes just to get out of the parking lot while every single one of the seventy-two Ball State fans in attendance walked past my car screaming CHIRP CHIRP. Kevin Wilson has done so many great things for this program, the next bugaboo the Hoosiers need to knock off is losing to teams worse than them at home. I think they finally do that this year or else I’m gonna be texted CHIRP CHIRP fifteen times and then do a murder. Hoosiers over Cardinals, 31-27.

JACOB RUDE: Nothing gets me more excited for college football than a Saturday afternoon game on ESPN News! Ball State fans like to chirp about beating IU football, but they still voluntarily live in Muncie so who actually wins here? IU 35, Ball State 17.

BEN RAPHEL: The losing streak against Ball State is snapped and Tom Allen is lauded after the Hoosier defense successfully holds opponents to under 30 points two weeks in a row. IU, 43-29.

BRIAN FOX: Ball State is coming off a 3-9 year and probably won’t be much improved. So this has to be the season IU finally beats the Cardinals, right? Indiana wins 40-24. I have zero confidence in this pick.

ALEX ROBBINS: Other than Purdue, there is no game I want Indiana to win more than this one. Purdue fans like to talk about reversible jackets while ignoring their own technicolor dreamcoats that turn the primary color of whatever team is playing the Hoosiers. And if I have to hear one more Purdue fan say “chirp chirp” like a damn bird, I’m gonna lose it. Anyway, this time the Cards don’t have a shot. Hoosiers win, 41-17.

THOMAS WACHTEL: More like BaLOL State, am I right? folk’s, IU, 420-69.

KYLE ROBBINS: Okay, guess I’m gonna have to actually say some things at Ball State here. Pete Lembo — who was a pretty good coach! — is gone now and left to be a dang assistant at Maryland. That’s probably not good! Former Ball State star Quarterback Mike Neu is here to run the program now after spending most of his career plying his trade in the arena league. The Cards went 3-9 last year, Lembo didn’t recruit particularly well, and there should be growing pains for Neu in Year 1. There’s some pieces on offense, but overall Indiana’s just far too talented for this to be close. Indiana 56, Ball State 21.

Game 3: Wake Forest Demon Deacons

BEN RAPHEL: Sure, Trap Queen came out a year and a half ago, but I’m still going to sing “I’m like hey what’s up hello” every time I see that 17-38 is the final score of a football game. Indiana, 38-17.

ALEX ROBBINS: Did you see this game last year? Indiana should have won by 30 on the road, was in a dogfight at the end, and still found a way, even while sputtering out of control, to win on the road. That’s how bad Wake Forest football is. Not even this being a trap game with Sparty looming is enough for the Marlboro men to win at The Rock. IU gets to 3-0, 31-21.

KYLE SWICK: Wake Forest is traaaaaaaaaash. I think this is the easiest game on the schedule and it’s a dang Power 5 matchup. Hoosiers over Demon Deacons, 42-14.

JACOB RUDE: What is a Demon Deacon? Isn’t that just a big oxymoron? Who thought that name up and thought “This is a great school nickname. Lets roll with it!” and why did no one stop them? Wake Forest 17, IU 38.

BRIAN FOX: This will probably be a frustratingly close game, just like last year. Devine Redding will run all over the Demon Deacons in the first half, Indiana will get out to a big lead, but will almost give it away before holding on.

KYLE ROBBINS: Dave Clawson’s reconstruction at the Power 5’s smallest university by far hasn’t been easy, but there are signs of incremental progress. Problem is, there’s still not a ton of talent being added to an offense that sputtered last year and they’re more than vulnerable in the secondary. That’s not a good mix to play Kevin Wilson Pointsball. Indiana 38, Wake Forest 27.

Game 4: Michigan State Spartans

BEN RAPHEL: Hoosiers play their best game of the year under the lights and take the lead with 5 minutes to go, but a late Sparty rally gives MSU the victory. Tyler O’Connor has his best statistical game of his career. MSU, 46-42.

BRIAN FOX: Tyler O’Connor and the Spartans give IU a warm welcome to Big Ten play by mollywhopping the Hoosiers. In his postgame press conference Kevin Wilson will stay positive and commend roughly 50 players who had a good week of practice.

ALEX ROBBINS: This is the one I am struggling with the most. After The Only Colors couldn’t take the joke about why you should hate them, I want the Spittoon back and for Tegray Scales to knock the mayo out of their starting jar of quarterback. And a 5:00 p.m. start time is just sleepy enough to make me think Indiana can beat a team they shouldn’t. But then I think, “It’s Indiana.” But as we all learned a long time ago, you’ve got to be more heart than brains to be an Indiana football fan. Gimme the Hoosiers to get to 4-0. 37-35.

JACOB RUDE: Last year, the Hoosiers started 3-0 and we stole the idea from Dan Dakich to campaign, er, campaigned to bring College Gameday This year, the same outcome is likely, this time with MSU instead of Ohio State. In order to avoid a silly game of “I said it first” with the aforementioned radio host, I hereby re-launch #iufb4gameday. MSU 28, IU 17.

MICHIGAN STATE: Indiana fell just short of knocking off #1 Ohio State in the conference opener last season and have been knocking on the door of a big conference upset for what seems like Kevin Wilson’s entire tenure. A prime time date in Bloomington is just as good of a time as any and, like any big game, it is probably going to involve a Zander Diamont rushing touchdown. Hoosiers over Spartans, 29-28.

KYLE ROBBINS: DON’T THINK MICHIGAN STATE WILL BE VERY GOOD AND INDIANA MIGHT BE 3-0 BY THIS POINT AND THIS WILL BE A NIGHT GAME AND NOPE NO WAY NOT TAKING THIS BAIT GIVE ME BETA BLOCKERS BEFORE THIS GAME. Michigan State 38, Indiana 30.

NCAA Football: Ohio State Spring GameAaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Game 5: at THEEEEEEEEEEEE ohio state university

ALEX ROBBINS: This game either comes after a disappointing loss after a 4th quarter letdown or the biggest win since Missouri. Ohio State 42-21.

BRIAN FOX: Ohio State just had the misfortune of suffering through a miserable 12-1 season last year. Kevin Wilson will give the Buckeyes this game to make them feel better.

JACOB RUDE: Considering how rough last year was for Ohio State, I’m inspired by their willingness to field a team again. Throw the curveball and start Zander Diamont. He sliced up that vaunted defense last year. Ohio State 31, IU 20.

KYLE SWICK: It appears I’ve predicted the Hoosiers to start 4-0 with a win over Michigan State so Buckeyes over Hoosiers, 49-7.

BEN RAPHEL: With LeBron James in attendance, the Buckeyes needlessly run up the score in the fourth quarter to put the Hoosiers away. Kevin Wilson throws his headset down in anger, reminding the crowd of how Steph Curry threw his mouthguard into the stands as the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals back in June.

THOMAS WACHTEL: I dunno, maybe Zander will save us again, only like, all the way this time. Probably not. More blood. Buckeyes, 45-20.

KYLE ROBBINS: It’s Ohio State-Indiana — which used to mean 40-something to 3-something, but now means 2.75 quarters of competitive football and then 1.25 of quarters apoplectic internet rage. Ohio State 41, Indiana 32.

Northwestern v NebraskaPhoto by Eric Francis/Getty Images

Game 6: Nebraska Cornhuskers

KYLE SWICK: This is a game that a lot of people think the Hoosiers will win and that makes some sense. Nebraska is still feeling their way through the post-Pelini fog and Indiana is theoretically on the upswing. That said, it’s Homecoming, and we all know the Hoosiers have never won a game on Homecoming, per state law. Huskers over Hoosiers, 34-28

ALEX ROBBINS: The Huskers just aren’t college football royalty anymore, so it doesn’t worry me a bit that Indiana has scheduled them for Homecoming. Nebraska’s defense has traded in the blackshirts for mini-skirts in the past few years and the Hoosier offense should be clicking by this point. A nice win on Homecoming gets Kevin Wilson’s kids to 5-1 at the halfway point. Indiana 34-27.

THOMAS WACHTEL: They lost to Illinois and Purdue last year, I’m shocked they didn’t get thrown out of the league like we did with Rutger. Indiana, 21-13.

JACOB RUDE: On the topic of bad nicknames, Cornhuskers? Really? You named your school nickname off a summer job? Why not choose Lifeguards or Camp Counselors or Lawn Mowers? Nebraska 28, IU 24.

BEN RAPHEL: The Hoosiers lose a heartbreaker on Homecoming. With IU down 8, Tommy Armstrong throws a late pick, setting the Hoosiers up for one more drive at the end of the game. Richard Lagow finds Simmie Cobbs wide-open for the TD, but the two-point conversion is no good, ending any chance of a comeback. Nebraska, 51-49.

BRIAN FOX: Jordan Westerkamp will have a monster day against IU’s secondary, but Nebraska doesn’t end up ruining IU’s homecoming. Hoosiers beat the one Big Ten team that lost to Purdue last year, 34-28.

KYLE ROBBINS: This is the game with some reallllllllllll stupid potential — and it might be the one that Changes Some Things at Indiana, if things go right. I think Nebraska’s probably a little better than some — I’ll even go out on a limb and say they’ll be a ranked 5-0 and coming off a bye week heading to Bloomington on October 15. That said, this is a homecoming game for Indiana and the perfect opportunity to get the big one. This is the One where Indiana maybe starts to really turn a corner. Or it’s not. I don’t know. Indiana 33, Nebraska 27.

NCAA Football: Northwestern at IllinoisDennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

Game 7: at Northwestern

KYLE SWICK: Oh my god an 11 AM kickoff in Evanston. They should air this game on C-SPAN or something. Indiana Football has played a lot of really stupid games in their recent and extended history, I have a feeling this is going to make the list. Whoever is the starting quarterback at this point probably misses most of this game with an injury, it’ll be about that time of year. Wildcats over Hoosiers, 19-13.

BRIAN FOX: Clayton Thorson has a career day by throwing for 200 yards, Justin Jackson runs the ball approximately 40 times, and the Northwestern fan next to me won’t shut up about how awesome 1995 was. Illinois’ second-favorite Big Ten team wins 14-13.

BEN RAPHEL: The Hoosiers have the lead through three, but the defense runs out of gas late, and the Wildcats win on a last-second field goal. NW, 33-32.

JACOB RUDE: Medill sucks. IU 35, Northwestern 24.

ALEX ROBBINS: This is one of just two defenses in the league that I think could shut down the IU offense. But it’s also one of the offenses that I think Indiana’s defense can hang with in a low-scoring affair. I think this could go either way, but since it would be for bowl eligibility, I’ll give the nod to the Cats. Northwestern wins 20-17.

THOMAS WACHTEL: I’m not sure that I can reliably predict a winner for this game, because you see – I didn’t go to Medill, so I’m not an expert. Northwestern, 35-28.

KYLE ROBBINS: Don’t you dare ask me to pick a 1am sure-to-be BTN game between Indiana and Northwestern. Absolutely not. Get this the hell away from me. I have no idea. Thorson and Lagow both throw for 450 yards a piece before Cthulhu rises from Lake Michigan and swallows everyone in Ryan Field whole. Indiana 27, Northwestern 25.

NCAA Basketball: Ohio State at MarylandTommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Game 8: Maryland Terrapins

ALEX ROBBINS: Bowl eligibility comes much earlier than we could ever dream in 2016. And clinching that berth will be oh so sweet at home. It won’t feel anything like the win for Hep against Purdue, but it will signal what has been long coming: Indiana football is good football program. Hoosiers roll the Terps, 41-21.

KYLE SWICK: Maryland has a lot of potential and absolutely clowned the Hoosiers during their first trip to Bloomington a couple of years ago. That said, apparent blackmail artist extraordinaire Perry Hills is once again their starting quarterback. Perhaps DJ Durkin saw Jim Harbaugh turn Jake Rudock into a serviceable passer and is just trying to one-up the old boss. Good luck with that. Hoosiers over Terrapins, 35-27.

THOMAS WACHTEL: Oh, the Maryland Fightin’ Crying Jordans! WIN, 49-20

JACOB RUDE: I realize that the word terrapin might be more common on the East Coast, but Maryland essentially named themselves the Maryland Turtles. I can think of few things less terrifying. Which Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle is their mascot? IU 27, Maryland 21.

BEN RAPHEL: After two great performances that unfortunately end in losses, the Hoosiers lay an egg at home to fall to 3-5, bowl hopes look in jeopardy, and the hot seat discussion for Kevin Wilson starts up once again. Fans at Memorial Stadium start to discuss whether the hoops team can repeat as B1G champs. Maryland, 34-18.

BRIAN FOX: This Will Likely be an Indiana win. 35-20 Hoosiers.

KYLE ROBBINS: Noted knockoff TJMaxx suit designer Perry Hills can’t throw the ball accurately more than 10 yards past the line of scrimmage. DJ Durkin will probably make Maryland better on defense in year one. I’m not sure how he helps them, you know, score point. Indiana ends the month of October at 6-2, bowl-eligible, and on a 3-game conference win streak. We’re wayyyyyy too close to the sun, here, buddy. Indiana 34, Maryland 27.

Maryland v RutgersPhoto by Alex Goodlett/Getty Images

Game 9: at RUTGERS, THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW JERSEY

BRIAN FOX: Much like the top teams in the SEC, IU has scheduled a late-season non-conference game to break up the conference schedule. Despite a rousing pregame speech from honorary captain Chris Christie, the Scarlet Knights come up short.

BEN RAPHEL: yeah sure whatever just win this stupid game i don’t care. Indiana, 69-0.

KYLE SWICK: How many times does Rutger have to beat Indiana before I stop picking Indiana to beat them and making a bunch of jokes at their expense? Well … at least three. Hoosiers over Scarlet Knights, 41-24.

THOMAS WACHTEL: I swear to God if we lose to frickin’ Rutger again I’m going to put my head through a wall. Indiana, 55-0.

ALEX ROBBINS: As long as no starters come down with a case of the New Jerseys that Imodium can’t fix, Indiana finishes what they started last season and doesn’t take their collective foot off the gas in this oddly-timed non-conference game. Hoosiers 48-27.

JACOB RUDE: Why did we schedule a non-conference game in early November? IU 69, Rutger 0.

KYLE ROBBINS:

Yeah.

TaxSlayer Bowl - Georgia v Penn StatePhoto by Rob Foldy/Getty Images

Game 10: Penn State Nittany Lions

BEN RAPHEL: Indiana, 29-12. The Hoosier defense gives up just four field goals all day in their best performance of the year, moving them back up to 5-5 with two games left.

BRIAN FOX: Penn State will end up missing Christian Hackenberg, which is a statement I never thought I’d type. The typical defensive slog between these two teams will feature a lot of punts. Joseph Gedeon scores the lone TD of the game on a fake punt but IU loses 9-7.

JACOB RUDE: I once sat through a Penn State-IU game. I would not wish that on my worst enemy. Penn State 7, IU 6.

KYLE SWICK: Another game that a lot of people feel reasonably confident in the Hoosiers prevailing. But as the old adage goes, if you’re going to pick Indiana to pull a massive upset, you need to offset it with a couple head-scratching losses and the Hoosiers completely no-showing at home against the Nittany Lions will probably qualify. Nittany Lions over Hoosiers, 31-14.

THOMAS WACHTEL: [REDACTED DUE TO ONGOING LEGAL PROCESS]. Penn State, 28-10.

KYLE ROBBINS: PUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNT. Just kidding. Indiana’s beaten Penn State at home before in recent memory, I’m still not sold on the Nits being any good this year. but oh god i’m about to pick indiana to win eight games oh god oh my god. Penn State 24, Indiana 21.

NCAA Football: Citrus Bowl-Michigan vs FloridaJim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Game 11, at The University of Michigan

ALEX ROBBINS: I would love nothing more than for the clock to be ticking down at the Big House and a camera to pan over Jim Harbaugh with a brown stain on the back of his khakis as Kevin Wilson is firing up some victory bacon on the visitor’s sideline. But I’m a little too realistic about this season — not that the Hoosiers can’t beat Michigan — and I’ve already picked IU to win too many games with one more to come. Wolverines break our hearts again. Michigan 42, Indiana 39.

BEN RAPHEL: Indiana once again puts up a great effort in the Big House, only to see a final drive come up short as the game ends. Michigan wins the B1G title and loses to Bama 39-0 in the CFP semis, which greatly amuses MSU fans. Michigan, 36-29.

KYLE SWICK: Maybe we’re a trap game being Michigan’s last opponent before Ohio State or maybe they’re just a lot better than us and playing at home so it won’t really matter. Wolverines over Hoosiers, 38-10.

THOMAS WACHTEL: Hopefully Tom Crean will get a few good shots in on Jim Harbaugh in the Bone Pit before the game and he’ll be honor bound to give us one. Otherwise this is probably going to hurt. Michigan, 45-35.

JACOB RUDE: Very excited for Indiana to go into the Big House, battle hard, blow a late lead and half the refs screw us over at least once. Michigan 35, IU 28.

BRIAN FOX: The real highlight of the day is Tom Crean and Jeff Meyer brawling in the stands. Michigan, 38-31.

KYLE ROBBINS: nah, skip

NCAA Football: Indiana at PurdueBrian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Game 12: Purdue Boilermakers

BEN RAPHEL: Needing a win to get to a bowl, the Hoosiers win their fourth straight Bucket Game, ending Darrell Hazell’s tenure on a lousy note. Indiana, 53-27.

JACOB RUDE: Reminder that Darrell Hazell recruited Simmie Cobbs to be a defensive back. And yet, Purdue is still actively employing this man. The jokes make themselves. IU 420, Purdue 0.

THOMAS WACHTEL: The moon landing was faked. We’re getting four in a row. Indiana, 52-14.

KYLE SWICK: The Bucket is never going back to West Lafayette. Viva la Burke. Hoosiers over Boilermakers, 55-10.

ALEX ROBBINS: Hoosiers 52, Boilers (don’t mess) 17. A nice way to end an 8-4 season.

BRIAN FOX: I really hope Darell Hazell continues to fire both coordinators at the end of each season in an effort to keep his job. Give this man a lifetime contract. Oh, and Indiana keeps the bucket 49-10.

KYLE ROBBINS: Sure, 7-5 sounds fine. I’m tired of writing. Indiana 900, Purdue -2.

The Big Ten announced the 2016-2017 men’s basketball schedule on Thursday afternoon, which you can find in its entirety at this link. The announcement means Indiana’s complete 2016-2017 schedule is now out with the exception of one exhibition game. We …

Via: A closer look at Indiana’s 2016-2017 Big Ten schedule

The orangeball Hoosiers now have the roadmap to a third Big Ten title in five years in their hands.

It wouldn’t be almost-Indiana-football-season without spending a few minutes talking about basketball.

The schedule is out, here it is:

Dec. 28: Nebraska at Indiana
Jan. 3: Wisconsin at Indiana
Jan. 7: Illinois at Indiana

Jan. 10: Indiana at Maryland
Jan. 15: Rutgers at Indiana
Jan. 18: Indiana at Penn State
Jan. 21: Michigan State at Indiana
Jan. 26: Indiana at Michigan
Jan. 29: Indiana at Northwestern
Feb. 1: Penn State at Indiana
Feb. 5: Indiana at Wisconsin
Feb. 9: Purdue at Indiana
Feb. 12: Michigan at Indiana
Feb. 15: Indiana at Minnesota
Feb. 21: Indiana at Iowa
Feb 25 or 26: Northwestern at Indiana
Feb. 28: Indiana at Purdue
March 4: Indiana at Ohio State

At first glance, in August, it looks quite manageable. No trip to East Lansing and three straight at home to start the conference slate. The Hoosiers do close with 4 out of the last five on the road, but that almost seems easy compared to last season’s end of the year run in which Indiana played #17 Purdue, at Illinois, at #16 Iowa, and #14 Maryland and managed to go 4-0 to secure an outright Big Ten title by two games.

There is one legitimate gripe with the early run of home games, though:

33% of #iubb‘s home B1G schedule will be played over winter break without students in town. That’s brutal.

Oh well.

Via: Indiana Basketball’s 2016-17 Big Ten schedule has been released and it’s pretty good maybe

Mark your calendars for that one — a matchup between two of the league’s title favorites for 2017.

IU’s homestand closes on Jan. 7 against Illinois. The Hoosiers first Big Ten road trip is to Maryland on Jan. 10.

With the frontloaded home schedule, IU will close the season with four of its final five games of the regular season on the road. That stretch begins with a trip to Minnesota on Feb. 15, followed by a visit to Iowa on Feb. 21.

IU will host Senior Day at Assembly Hall against Northwestern on either Feb. 25 or 26. The Hoosiers will wrap the regular season with games at Purdue (Feb. 28) and Ohio State (March 2).

IU and Purdue played only once last season, but will be back on a two-play rotation in 2017. The Boilermakers open the series with a visit to Assembly Hall on Feb. 9.
