On that afternoon in late November, Kevin Wilson and Tom Allen stood on the same Indiana sideline, calling the plays that helped the Hoosiers clinch bowl eligibility and a fourth consecutive victory over Purdue.
During the months-long buildup to tonight, Allen, who is entering his first full season as Indiana coach, has been quick to push the spotlight away from he and Wilson, now Ohio State's offensive coordinator following his Dec. 1 ouster.
A 31-0 loss to Clemson in last season's Fiesta Bowl was ultimately the final straw for Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer, who knew he needed to give his offense a jolt.
Bottom line is, yes, we did watch some previous clips of Coach Wilson calling our own offenses here recently and in years past.
On the other hand, Wilson is supplying Ohio State with intimiate knowledge of Indiana's personnel, both offensively and defensively.
