Besides the absence of Kellen Lewis, no issue swirled around the Indiana football team more than its implementation of a no-huddle offense. Then, when Lewis was reinstated but had to earn his starting job back because he’d missed playing spring ball sans huddle, the stories became intertwined.
On Tuesday at his press conference, Indiana coach Bill Lynch said he was pleased with how Lewis ran the offense in IU’s 31-13 win against Western Kentucky Saturday.Â The only thing he hopes to improve is game management when Indiana needs to run the clock. Late in the game against the Hilltoppers, Lewis ended up standing at the line with 35 seconds on the 40-second play clock and not running as much time off as possible.
“That’s something we really didn’t practice much, so we will work on that,” Lynch said.
Wide receiver Andrew Means also spoke with the media Tuesday and said the team enjoyed playing at such a fast pace.
“I couldn’t even imagine going back and huddling,” he said. “I just love it. Looking back at huddling makes you think, ‘Wow, why would we ever do that?’ ”
