All that was missing was a banana peel. Or Moe, Larry and Curly — nyuk nyuk — though this team could have used the laughs. Indiana’s season was like the spring training montage from “Major League,” but the film stopped there: there was no magical, inspired turnaround, just loss after loss after loss. Part of me was surprised that after finally scoring a touchdown against Wisconsin, Kevin Wilson didn’t imitate one of his predecessors, Lee Corso, and have the entire roster pose under the nearest scoreboard for a team photo. This was the worst B.C.S. conference team in the country, beating out strong contenders like Kansas, Mississippi, Maryland and Colorado for the crown, and this might have also been the worst team in program history. The latter designation says it all, if you’re familiar with the history of Indiana football.

Another Wisconsin-themed hypothetical question: Where would you have ranked the Badgers’ quarterbacks against the rest of the Big Ten if Danny O’Brien had instead opted for, say, Penn State? If Wisconsin had gone into 2012 with options like Joe Brennan and Jon Budmayr, it would have joined Michigan State as the only two teams in the conference to not return a quarterback with at least one career start under his belt. So consider the toppling dominoes: O’Brien should start, which should push Brennan into a more fitting role as his backup, which will allow Budmayr to heal and former walk-on Joel Stave to develop.

The search is on for Big Ten-caliber talent, and no one understands the value and importance of this endeavor more than Indiana’s Kevin Wilson, he of the one-win debut campaign. There was a time, if you recall, when Indiana was the talk of the recruiting trail: Gunner Kiel, before committing to L.S.U. and before committing to Notre Dame – the latter is now official – was once a verbal lock for Bloomington, where he’d marry his sizable skills with Wilson’s history of turning his quarterbacks into Heisman-worthy stars. Kiel has long been off of Indiana’s radar, even if still on the Hoosiers’ minds, which has Wilson looking elsewhere for his quarterback of the future.
