After last night’s 30-10 steamroller over Clemson, a few of the voices in my head that have questioned the reality of the Cavaliers’ strong season so far have been quieted. But only a few. After all, it’s early in the season—plenty of time for a late-schedule swoon like those that have plagued the Hoos for years. But maybe Groh has taken care of that little problem, along with making unwelcome cultural changes (orange T-shirts rather than semiformal dress, marching band rather than Pep Band).
The likelihood is that the Hoos will move up in the rankings again, getting into territory that they haven’t seen since George Welsh coached.
