In five years at Indiana head coach Tom Allen has raised the long-struggling program from the doldrums to heights from which the Hoosiers can open fire on any team in the Big Ten and experience some success.

Another doleful record fell Saturday as Indiana knocked off Michigan, (in authoritative style, no less), for the first time in thirty-three seasons, dating back to 1987. The undefeated and tenth ranked Hoosiers are headed next Saturday to East Lansing, Michigan for an opportunity to sweep the Michigan schools for the first time in maybe forever.

If the 3-0 Hoosiers continue to win, they may be looking at an opportunity to play for their first Big Ten title since 1967, which is the league’s longest drought and a dubious honor they share with the University of Minnesota. 

On Monday Allen spoke with reporters over a Zoom call and this is what he had to say about his football team.
