(Missouri Football App) – Gary Pinkel made one thing clear in his Monday press conference: Don’t take the Indiana offense lightly.

“There are a lot of different things they play. Fastball, they play fast. They certainly get their reps in, and they are very, very potent,” Pinkel said.

Pinkel is talking about an offense that was installed by head coach Kevin Wilson. Before Wilson came to Bloomington, he was the offensive coordinator at Oklahoma from 2002-2010 where he helped run a high tempo, electric attack that Tigers fans are very familiar with.

Last season, the Indiana offense averaged 30.8 points per game and averaged 442 yards of offense per game, ranking second in the Big Ten.  Wilson’s team also put up 49 points against Urban Meyer’s undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes.  

Indiana is returning 10 starters from that 2012 roster.
