Will the Hoosiers make it back to a a bowl game? Can Kellen Lewis redeem himself? Is Bill Lynch the right guy for the job? No Ohio State or Michigan on the schedule can only help, right?
We'll see... here are my predictions for the Hoosiers in 2008.
8/30 WESTERN KENTUCKY
The big question is whether Kellen Lewis gets the start or is he punished the first week of the season.
Prediction: Win (31-14)
9/06 MURRAY STATE
An easy win for the Hoosiers.
Prediction: Win (38-10)
9/20 BALL STATE
The MAC doesn't have enough for the Hoosiers.
Prediction: Win (28-17)
9/27 MICHIGAN STATE
The first big test of the season. The Hoosiers fall just short.
Prediction: Loss (28-24)
10/04 at MINNESOTA
The Hoosiers regroup with thier first road game of the season.
Prediction: Win (35-10)
Iowa can't stop Kellen Lewis.
Prediction: Win (31-17)
10/18 at ILLINOIS
Kellen Lewis vs. Juice Williams. Should be fun to watch.
Prediction: Loss (31-24)
Will the home field advantage be enough against C.J. Bacher and Tyrell Sutton? Barely...
Prediction: Win (28-27)
11/01 CENTRAL MICHIGAN
An easy win for the Hoosiers after last week's close call.
Prediction: Win (38-14)
It's nice when you get Wisconsin at home. Usually...
Prediction: Loss (20-17)
11/15 at PENN STATE
Penn State is always tough at home.
Prediction: Loss (28-21)
11/22 at PURDUE
The Boilermakers will be seeking revenge for last year. They will send Joe Tiller out with a bang.
Prediction: Loss (34-28)
Final Record 7-5. Another good season for the Hoosiers who continue to build their program. Two bowl invites in a row will only help Bill Lynch build this program.
