The Hoosier softball team has appeared in four Women's College World Seriesin, and It features an eight-lane Olympic-sized pool spanning 30, square feet 2, The Billingsley Diving Center, complete with one of the country's few indoor diving towers, features four one-meter and two three-meter springboards as well as one- three- five- seven- and meter platforms. The Indiana University Outdoor Pool serves as the team's training facility in the summer months.
Tom Allen is and now in his third full season as the head coach at Indiana.
Adam Cushing was hired as the 25th head football coach at Eastern Illinois on Dec. He spent the previous 15 seasons at Northwestern and served as offensive line coach from Brantley is the better runner of the two.
Neither quarterback was particularly effective in a season opening loss at Chattanooga that saw Eastern Illinois produce just 10 points.
In week one their stats were very similar. Woodbery was of with yards passing and one interception, Brantley was of with yards passing and one touchdown. The overarching issue is a lack of experience with EIU returning just two starters on offense.
The scenario led to three freshmen starting on the offensive line in week one. Tom Allen has been preaching better tackling since the end of the Ball State game. It will be interesting to see if the Hoosiers can clean that up this week. The Panthers employ a scheme and allowed yards in their first game.
The secondary returned three of four starters from and the unit produced two interceptions in their week one contest. Irrespective of the tactic used by the Panthers, IU should be able to impose their will in this one.
The game will also allow redshirt freshman quarterback Michael Penix to get another start under his belt and continue to sharpen his game before Big Ten action begins next week. Another theme this week has been the multiple dropped passes by IU in week one, including two that would have been touchdowns.
The Hoosiers know they need to play much better if they want to have a prayer against Ohio State next week.
EIU will at least have some familiarity with IU, and their head coach has had success against the Hoosiers. While Cushing was with Northwestern, the Wildcats posted a record against Indiana.
