Re: Never Daunted: An Indiana Hoosiers Dynasty (NCAA 14)

Chestnut has record breaking day as Hoosiers beat Michigan

Ann Arbor, MI- Indiana has to be tired of being reminded about their loss to rival Purdue. In the 3 games since, Indiana has looked human. Theyíve won those games, but itís been anything but pretty.

Maybe now they can put that loss completely behind them.

Indiana entered Saturdayís game against Michigan in a bit of a rut. Two overtime wins and a fourth quarter comeback against 1-win Maryland came in stark contrast to their early season wins. Michigan, meanwhile, entered the game ranked number 21 in the polls, after falling from the top spot behind three straight losses. The hope, at least in Ann Arbor, was a home win against number 5 Indiana on senior day would turn the tide for the Wolverines.

Michigan took the gameís opening drive to the endzone in textbook fashion to go up 7-0. Indiana would answer, however, as QB Jon Manning kept the ball on a read option play and fought his way into the endzone from 3 yards out.

From there, IUís defense would turn up the heat, holding Michigan scoreless for the remainder of the half, while the Hoosier offense would add a field goal and a 4-yard Daryl Chestnut touchdown to take a 17-7 lead into halftime.

Indiana picked up right where they left off in the third, going 75 yards, ending with Manning finding Taj Williams in the endzone for 6. Another IU field goal would make it 27-7 after three.

But Michigan refused to roll over. The Wolverines would again drive down the field, capping off the drive with a touchdown from a yard out.

Indianaís Daryl Chestnut would pick up 41 of his 154 yards on a single play, outrunning a slew of Michigan defenders for his second touchdown of the day. Michigan would again answer with a touchdown of their own, but would again fail to recover the onside kick. IUís backup running back Laray Smith would break free for a 43 yard run, which he would follow up with a touchdown of his own from a yard out. Michigan would throw an interception on their next possession, eliminating any hope of a comeback. Final score, Indiana 41, Michigan 21.

Indianaís coach Pate said after the game, ďThis is exactly what we needed, this type of win against this type of team in this type of environment. This is a huge confidence builder for us.Ē

One man Michigan canít blame for the loss is quarterback Lionel Simpson, who threw for 254 yards, completing 25 of 32 passes.

Indianaís quarterback, Jon Manning, after completing only 5 of 13 passes against Maryland, completed 13 of 15 for 212 yards, a touchdown, and no interceptions.

IUís Daryl Chestnut, in addition to his two touchdowns, broke the IU record for rushing yards in a season, set by Vaughn Dunbar in 1991, and eclipsed the 2,000 yard mark for the season.

IU now heads to Columbus to conclude their roadtrip against Ohio State, a game that will likely decide the Big Ten East divisionís representative in the Big Ten Championship game. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:00 PM.

Game Notes
Indiana hits the road for their final road game of the regular season, traveling this week to Ohio State. The Buckeyes have been one of the nation's hottest team of late, but haven't played well at the Horseshoe. This is a very big game for the Hoosiers, as a win will clinch the East division of the Big Ten. OSU is still in the hunt for that same spot, however, and will control their own destiny with a win. More than just bragging rights on the line in this one.

Re: Never Daunted: An Indiana Hoosiers Dynasty (NCAA 14)

Buckeyes too much for Indiana

Columbus, OH- Indiana walked into Ohio Stadium looking for a win. A win that would send them to the Big Ten Championship Game. A win that would legitimize Indiana as a football power.

That win will have to wait.

When Indiana left Ohio Stadium on Saturday night, they did so after having been dealt a 24 point loss to the red-hot Buckeyes.

After Daryl Chestnut and the Hoosier ground game were held to a three and out on their first possession, Ohio State wasted no time marching down the field to take an early 7-0 lead. A lead that they would never lose. IU quarterback Jon Manning threw the first of three interceptions on the day on the Hoosiersí next possession, and before Indiana knew what hit them, OSU had again marched down the field for a touchdown, going up by two scores in the first quarter. Indiana was playing from behind the 8-ball.

Things looked to be turning around in the second quarter. IUís Daryl Chestnut was able to find his blockers, and Manning found Sam Pitts in the endzone for the first Hoosier score of the game.

But again, OSUís high powered, up-tempo offense couldnít be stopped. The Buckeyes added another TD to the scoreboard to retake the two touchdown lead.

Chestnut would score a touchdown from 2 yards out at the end of the quarter, and Indiana went into the locker room down a manageable 21-14.

IU was finally able to get a defensive stop on the first OSU possession of the second half, forcing the Bucks to settle for a field goal.

On Indianaís next possession, facing a fourth and two, coach Pate elected to go for it, but the run by Chestnut would be stopped well short of the markers. From there, any momentum left for the Hoosiers fell by the wayside, and Ohio State would add a pair of touchdowns before gameís end. Final score: OSU 38, Indiana 14.

Said IUís coach Pate afterward, ďWe just didnít have an answer defensively. We threw everything we had at them. By the time we found something that worked, it was too late.

ďItís hard to keep your head in it. When you get down like we did there, even in the first half, itís hard to get yourself fired up. We got outplayed. That pretty much sums it up.Ē

Indianaís Daryl Chestnut was only able to put up 96 yards on 24 rushes, as the Hoosiers moved to a pass-heavy offense in the second half. Jon Manning threw for 95 yards, completing only 9 of 21 passes, while throwing a touchdown and three interceptions.

Ohio State was led by quarterback JT Barrett, who went 15 of 17 passing for 172 yards, and tallied 98 yards rushing on 15 attempts, scoring two touchdowns on the ground. Buckeye halfback Ezekiel Elliott chipped in 103 yards on 14 carries and also had a pair of touchdowns.

Indiana returns home for their final game of the regular season against ranked Penn State. IU still has a chance to make the Big Ten title game, but must beat Penn State and have Michigan beat Ohio State to do so.

Kickoff in Bloomington is set for 6 PM.

Game Notes
Expect a low scoring game in this one, as we'll see the two best defenses in the country go at it. If Indiana wants to make the Big Ten Championship, they must win this game, and even that might not be enough. This will also be the final home game for several key IU players, including Heisman finalist Daryl Chestnut. Also of interesting note, IU's last home game against Rutgers was Memorial Stadium's 300th win. Will we see #301 against Penn State?
