With undefeated Indiana set to face #3 Ohio State, I reached out to a few of the Hoosier football fan diehards that I know (there aren’t many) to get their perspective on the program’s turnaround.
Indiana, long a punchline, made progress with a solid 8-5 campaign in 2019, but is so far making history this season, thanks to a top-ten ranking and wins over traditional powers like Michigan and Penn State. It was impossible for me to fully describe what being an IU football fan has been like, so I felt it necessary to reach out to Kyle, Chronic, and Garrison, who have been emotionally invested for years, to get their takes.
I hope you enjoy it!
From @Schultz975: "Being a fan of a sports team where you can’t allow yourself to become emotionally invested in what happens on the field or court may sound strange, but it makes sense for a program like Indiana." https://t.co/mUnc3hxUka
