Indiana’s lackluster efficiency in its season opener Saturday was foreshadowed by a peculiar mistake off the sector — a spelling mistake that’s.
The jersey of freshman working again David Holloman learn “Indinia,” in keeping with a video posted — after which deleted — by the Hoosiers’ official athletics Twitter account.
Viewers took screenshots of the embarrassing error and it rapidly made its rounds on the web.
Indiana’s day didn’t get a lot better after that mishap. Going through No. 18 Iowa on the highway, IU trailed the Hawkeyes 14-0 after a mere two minutes earlier than finally shedding 34-6.
This isn’t the primary jersey controversy for Indiana, both. In January, the Hoosiers eliminated the Huge Ten logos from its jerseys and helmets forward of the Outback Bowl in opposition to Ole Miss.
Many speculated the college felt slighted by the convention putting it in a lesser Bowl recreation regardless of ending second within the Huge Ten East division, a notion that Indiana coach Tom Allen refuted.
