On Monday, Indiana coach Kevin Wilson compared the Hoosiers’ fourth quarter performance against Ball State on Sept. 10 to the attendance habits of Indiana fans. Indiana won the game 30-20 to improve to 2-0 but allowed the Cardinals to score 20 unanswered points to end the game, including 17 in the fourth quarter.

“We played like our fans and left in the fourth quarter,” Wilson said at a press conference Monday. In the fourth quarter, Ball State kicked a field goal, returned a blocked punt for a touchdown and capped off a 78-yard drive with a touchdown pass, while the Hoosiers were held scoreless.
Wilson later suggested that if fans buy a good enough cooler, their drinks will remain cold until after the game, when they can return to their tailgates.
