At the heart of Indiana’s resurgent 2019 season is the Hoosier offense. Indiana (6-2, 3-2) is either first or second in the Big Ten in several offensive categories through eight games:
- Passing Offense — First in the Big Ten (312.8 yards per game)
- Sacks Allowed — First in the Big Ten (1.38 yards per game)
- Total Offense — Second in the Big Ten (450.5 yards per game)
- Completion Percentage — Second in the Big Ten (69.7%)
- Tackles for Loss Allowed — Second in the Big Ten (5 per game)
- Fumbles Lost — Second in the Big Ten (3)
- First Downs — Second in the Big Ten (194 first downs)
Of course the Hoosiers made a change during the offseason and brought in new offensive coordinator Kalen DeBoer to replace Mike DeBord.
After the Indiana offense struggled in 2018, DeBoer’s impact has been significant in his first season in Bloomington.
With things going so well, DeBoer will be a name on the radar of other programs for a head coaching job. He’s been open from the start that he ultimately does want to become the leader of a program.
DeBoer discusses that, his background coming up through the ranks in South Dakota, and much more on this podcast by the MidCo Sports Network.
