08:18 AM ET 09.27 | The Big Ten opener looms for Indiana, and you can forget about the Hoosiers' depth chart. Oh, yes. Defensive co-coordinator Mike Ekeler is ticked. "There is no depth chart at this point," he said. ... "We're gonna fix it. That's why we were brought here. That's not the standard we're gonna set." The Hoosiers are 1-3 and enter Saturday's Big Ten opener against Penn State (3-1) with zero momentum. They got manhandled by a previously winless North Texas team on Saturday three weeks after being manhandled by Ball State and a week after setting a school record for most penalties. "We had 28 loafs (not hustling plays) and I think it was 18 missed tackles," Ekeler said about the 24-21 loss to North Texas. "That was an embarrassment."

You are wrong. They can't be bad. Gordon Gee says so.

Is that guy a glutton for punishment? maybe just likes to play in the shadow of his own end zone? or just plain stoopid?

I'm actually happy to see this. Last year, the coaches would have just went on to the next week. Doing this wakes up the players and tells them that the coaches aren't messing around. I really like the new coaches and I think they'll bring IU back to relevancy once they get their players in the system

not to nit-pick but shouldn't that be 28 "loaves"...and don't say it to loud or Fat Charlie might schedule you...oh wait, I forgot they don't leave the state....
