Indiana boasts enough offensive talent to win arguably every game on their schedule.
"It's an opportunity for us to figure out how to get the ball in all those guys' hands," head coach Bill Lynch says of a unit featuring familiar standouts such as Demarlo Belcher, Tandon Doss, Terrance Turner, and Darius Willis.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the ball...
(Sorry, I'm still looking for something good to say.)
The Hoosiers will have to win some high-scoring ballgames in 2010, and despite all their skill-position firepower on offense, I still don't think they'll make it to six victories.
IU has a fighting chance to go 4-0 in the soft non-conference slate (I've seen better high school schedules), but I struggle to find two league games that they're destined to come out on top of. (To put things in perspective, the Hoosiers haven't won two league games in the same year since 2007.)
Maybe they can get by Northwestern at home, maybe they can pick off Illinois on the road. But can the Hoosiers definitely grab both of those?
I'm saying no.
