Bowl eligibility never felt so good / Adam Weber

For the first time since 1994, the Indiana Hoosiers are bowl eligible, baby!

Kellen Lewis had another great day and IU rolled over a MAC opponent...see it isn't impossible to do that, Gophers fans.

After watching the first half of the Minnesota/Illinois game at Senser's, I have to find out what other people think of Adam Weber. He's a freshman, so he has plenty of time to develop, but hasn't really shown many signs of doing that as the season has unfolded.

Here's my list, in order of importance:

1. Pocket presence. How many times does he not sense the pressure coming before falling to the turf? Maybe he's in love with his own athleticism and wants to run the ball every time, but just get rid of the damn ball every once in a while.

2. Accuracy. With the spread offense, he must hit the open man.

3. Decision making. Figure out whether to run or pass quickly, go from there.

Weber has been the only encouraging thing in my estimation. His numbers have certainly not improved as the season has gone on but the B10 competition is a lot different than the non-conf teams we saw.

Turnovers have been his biggest problem, decision making has been hit and miss but he is a freshman and he has far surpassed what I expected from him. But I have loved his toughness, leadership and he has run this brand new offense quite well.
