    A win is a win, but that was ugly. The bad: 4 turnovers, 2 by Joe Williams. Red Zone offense was dysfunctional yet again. Secondary gave up some big plays again.

    Highlight: RB Joe Williams. 222 yards on 26 attempts for 1 TD. That said his two fumbles were not good and that is his reputation. To provide perspective, Joe had 5 fumbles/5 lost in 210 rushing attempts where he gained 1407 yards. That's a fumble for every 42 attempts. By comparison, Christian McCaffrey had 1 fumble/none lost in 253 attempts where he gained 1773 yards. I have no doubt that Joe Williams is very fast, and very quick to top speed, but the fumble issue will haunt him.

    Negative: QB Troy Williams. 11/23 for 178 yards 0 TDs and 1 INT. Troy has shown to be a 50% completion rate passer. He holds onto the ball waaaay toooo long. He is unable to audible or adjust on the fly. IU knew and came with basic blitz packages all night. Troy never adjusted with quick passes over the middle to beat the blitz. Just indicative of low game IQ. We now know why Petersen at UW pushed Troy Williams out.

    We got glimpses of Tyler Huntley at QB. Announcers said he had a surprising burst of speed like Lamar Jackson. I think Huntley will present a true challenge to Troy Williams next year. The issue is that he's like 6-2 and 190 lbs. They need to put him on HGH and weights to bulk him up.

    Down the road, Utah has a 2018 commit from Jack Tuttle who plays at Mission Hills High in San Marcos. Smart kid with a 4.3 GPA. His video shows a live arm and a kid who gets the ball out quickly, which is exactly the opposite of what we see with Troy Williams.

    They say you are what your records says you are and there's truth to that. Utah was about 7 or so plays short of a great season, but they were consistent in that across the season. I think next year is more rebuild. Until we meet again, adios.

    Yeah, it was an ugly game that Utah was lucky to win.

    From my view point, Utah made that much closer than it should have been. But whatever. That book is closed.

    I missed a good portion of the game but what I did see both teams played hard, looked like they they wanted to win, which is more than some bowl games.

    As for the ugly part, welcome to B1G style of ball, they have many games like that. Holiday bowl was similar with Minnesota dragging Washi state boys into similar battle. Its never all that pretty when teams play decent defense, forcing offense into some mistakes.

    Indiana played some good teams pretty close so I was not surprised by outcome. They are no push over so it is a decent win.

    Big T is spot on with the fumbling, hard to keep a job in the NFL with that reputation.

    Go Buckeyes!:D

    To point out Big T's spelling of Indiana in the thread title. Nothing more.

    He got tOSU right so he must be becoming a fan:D

    Sorry and after reading it a third time, you are correct sir! He is usually good at spelling and must have been enjoying an adult beverage...
