Fun Stat Nerd Tidbit: Indiana

New, 4 comments

I'm still struggling to get over the fact that a run-first, run-second team like Wisconsin scored 83 points in a game against Indiana.  As a fan of a team that once gave up 73 points against a team actively trying not to score, I know how bad can go to worse, but ... 83!  Sixth-most points allowed by a same-division opponent in the last 50 years!
