Allen has greater game-day freedom

Tuesday, September 03, 2019 1:00 am Cameron Drummond | For The Journal Gazette BLOOMINGTON – Amid the wholesale changes Indiana unveiled during Saturday's season-opening win against Ball State, there was a more subtle adjustment made – to the coaching staff.

He placed himself close enough to officials to call timeouts at a moment's notice and found himself frequently sprinting to advocate for flags in IU's favor.

A key aspect of Allen's experience during the 34-24 victory at Lucas Oil Stadium was becoming in-tune with DeBoer's offense.

IU's run game with sophomore Stevie Scott was largely stagnant as Ball State loaded the tackle box on defense, but he still managed two goal-line touchdowns.

Most of the glaring issues from the win came courtesy of the defense; Wommack's group had 25 missed tackles and allowed 181 yards after first contact, Allen said.

What Wommack described as “phenomenal” effort and “super good” communication helped salvage the defensive performance.
