#7 Indiana Hoosiers

Coach Terry Hoeppner was a true believer in the abaility of Indian to join the upper level of Big Ten teams and he was just the kind of threat to make this happen. Saddly for everyone he succumbed before anyone was ready, to brain cancer and leaves a team behind that was starting to believe in his energy but in the hands of a coach that doesn’t have his zealotious fire.

Yet the teams brings most if its bits back and they are going to be playing for coach (Hoeppner, not Lynch) and as such this team, that just missed getting to a bowl game last year will make it to one this year. And they’ll win it too.

Projection: 6-6 (3-5)

Worst Case: 4-8 (1-5)

Best Case: 8-4 (5-3)
Add in wins @ Western Michigan and Northwestern, a possible top 25 finish and the IU faithful will build shrines to Hoeppner… as they should.
