Indiana senior defensive lineman Mike Ziemba may have made his decision about the 2021 season in a video he posted on Twitter early Sunday morning.

A day after the Hoosiers fell 26-20 to Ole Miss in the Outback Bowl, Ziemba posted a minute-long video, saying “there’s a lot more to be done,” and “it’s time to get back to work.” While he didn’t directly say he’ll be back in Bloomington for another season, taking advantage of the NCAA’s blanket waiver for fall student-athletes, that appears to be the case.

Ziemba also shared this message in his tweet.

“Let’s get back to work,” Ziemba said. “Coach Powell always says, ‘it’s not about the amount of breaths you are given, it’s about what you do with each one of those breaths.’ Won’t ever forget this feeling. I love this team LEO.”

Ziemba was credited with 11 tackles during Indiana’s 6-2 season in 2020, with 1 stop for loss. During his career with the Hoosiers, Ziemba has racked up 54 total tackles with 8.5 for loss and 1 sack. He’s also responsible for a pair of fumble recoveries.

While Indiana had a successful season, defeating the likes of Penn State, Michigan and Wisconsin this year, the Hoosiers did not finish with a bowl win — the team’s goal each of the last two seasons. IU has not won a bowl game since the Copper Bowl in 1991.
