Hoosiers somehow spell 'Indiana' wrong on a jersey for season opener vs. Iowa

·1 min read

Indiana’s Saturday afternoon in Iowa City got off to a brutal start — even before the Hoosiers took the field at Kinnick Stadium.

David Holloman was featured in a tweet sent out by the Hoosiers’ athletic department on Saturday ahead of No. 17 Indiana’s 34-6 loss to No. 18 Iowa, though there was one big spelling error on his jersey.

Indiana was misspelled.

Now, the athletic department quickly deleted the tweet and moved on with a fresh one. And it seems like Holloman’s jersey was the only one with the gaffe.

But still, misspelling your own state is just tough — and there's no excuse that can make it any better.

The game itself wasn’t any better for the Hoosiers, either.

The Hawkeyes scored twice in the first 2:15 of the contest off a 56-yard touchdown run from Tyler Goodson and a 30-yard interception return from Riley Moss to put them up 14-0 almost instantly. Iowa found the end zone twice more in the second quarter, too, and took a 31-3 lead at the break.

From there, Iowa simply rode out the clock en route to its 28-point win.

Somehow, it seems that Indiana’s spelling woes are the least of their worries.
