There was no Indiana football practice Sunday, and instead the IU team took the day off to watch video and get rested for the second week of practice.
In a story on the Indiana University athletic website, Indiana offensive coordinator Kevin Johns talked about that he’s looking forward to seeing what happens next with this IU football team.
“I want to see that next step,’’ Johns said. “The first week, you're installing a lot of plays and thinking. Now it's time for us to iron out those wrinkles and play a lot faster."
First year defensive coordinator Brian Knorr also is eager to see what the second week of practice looks like with the defensive side of the ball.
“I kind of want to see our playmakers emerge,’’ Knorr said. “We had some young men do some good things (Saturday). We want to see who is going to be our dynamic playmaker. Who can we count on when things are tough?"
Indiana went to full pads on Friday and then scrimmaged in pads on Saturday. Senior wide receiver Shane Wynn said he was impressed by how his younger teammates came in and looked right away in the full contact work.
“A lot of heart from the young guys," Wynn said. "A lot of the young guys usually come in scared to hit or scared to do board drills and things like that. With this group of young guys, they're not scared of anything. They're ready to learn and they're ready to do what you teach them."
Monday’s practice is closed to the media, too, but AllHoosiers.com will be there Tuesday when we have availability with defensive players.
