Tom Allen checks hat to make sure Indiana is spelled right at Monday morning press conference

Indiana head coach Tom Allen had some fun with a bizarre situation that played out on Saturday in Iowa City.

As you have likely seen by now, freshman running back David Holloman ran out onto the Kinnick Stadium field with a jersey that had “Indinia” emblazoned across the chest plate rather than Indiana.

A photo of Holloman’s jersey, which was first published by the Indiana Athletics Twitter page before it was deleted, went viral during IU’s disappointing 34-6 loss to the Hawkeyes after several people noticed the misspelling and grabbed a screen shot.

Allen had some fun with the situation on Monday morning as he commenced a media availability.

“Okay, let me check something first here,” Allen said as he removed his hat at his regular in-season Monday morning press conference.

“I just want to make sure Indiana is spelled right on my hat before we get started,” he continued as he broke into a smile and the attendees laughed.

Allen did not comment further on how a jersey ended up with an incorrect spelling of Indiana.
