Head Coach Tom Allen Live Tweets Rewatch of 2018 Rain Soaked Win Over Virginia

Friday night was supposed to be an important night for the IU football program.

The 2020 Cream and Crimson spring game was scheduled to take place at Memorial Stadium, but it was of course canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

But Indiana head coach Tom Allen didn’t opt to take the night off.  Instead, he channeled his game day energy into a different format — his Twitter account.

Already active on the social media platform, Allen stepped it up on Friday night.  He enthusiastically live-tweeted a rewatch of Indiana’s 2018 win over Virginia in a rain soaked Memorial Stadium in Bloomington.

In total, Allen unofficially tweeted 139 timed during the re-airing of the game, highlighting key moments, questionable calls, and yes, his assault of a trash can after the win.

Indiana won the game of course, 20-16, and you can watch it below.  Here are some of Allen’s more notable tweets during the game.

The game was running back Stevie Scott’s first start, and he responded with 31 carries for 204 yards.

Despite the challenging conditions, quarterback Peyton Ramsey was 16-of-22 for 150 yards and two touchdowns.

A mention during the broadcast of late former IU head coach Terry Hoeppner elicited this tweet from Allen.

More than a year removed from the game, Allen was apparently not concerned about fines for questioning calls.

Of course Allen was a good sport and commented on the moment after the game when he kicked over a trash can to reach more fans.

And of course we couldn’t talk about that moment without sharing it here.
