Reality Check -- Indiana Is Built For Long-Term Football Success

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – This was never just about one game.

It was, for Indiana head coach Tom Allen, always -- always -- about building a consistent winner, a decade of winners, of running a program that wins in the manner of bowl regulars.

The Hoosiers took a big step with this season's 8-5 record. More steps are needed -- the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl 23-22 loss to Tennessee was a painful reminder of that -- but the foundation is there.

"We're building a program that expects to be in these games every year," Allen says.
