Zander Diamont blames offensive play-calling for bowl loss on Twitter
Zander Diamont wasn’t happy with how the offense was run in the Foster Farms Bowl on Wednesday night, blaming the play-calling for the Hoosiers’ 26-24 loss to Utah.
Following the game, the junior quarterback didn’t hold back, tweeting “offensive play calling lost us that game.” He has since deleted the tweet.
Diamont was on the field for three plays against the Utes, and had the best throw of the night for Indiana, a 36-yard TD strike to Nick Westbrook that tied the game in the second quarter at 17. He was so fired up after the play, he was strutting down the field.
It was just the second touchdown pass that Diamont has thrown in his career, though the mobile quarterback does have eight rushing scores to his name.
The Hoosiers starting quarterback Richard Lagow had a rough night in San Diego, completing just 14-of-39 passes with one TD and an INT. Utah’s defense ranked eighth in the Pac-12 against the pass, though they did record 17 interceptions in the regular season.
Wednesday’s bowl game was the end of the road for Diamont, who announced he would retire from football at the end of the season despite having a year of eligibility left.
He wasn’t happy with the way his career came to a close.
