Based on S&P+ data, after the first 3 weeks IU is projected to win 8.2 games and finish 3rd in the East division over Michigan and 4th in the entire conference.

It gives IU a 30.6% chance to win 8 games, a 26.5% chance to win 9 games, and a 12.1% chance to win 10 games.

Almost seems too good to be true but I’m really happy with the way this team has played so far. I think this is finally the year we win the games we’re supposed to win and we take a couple we shouldn’t and not just make it to a bowl but goes to a quality one. This weekend will be huge. Get a win over a struggling Sparty and be in top 25 discussion. Go Hoosiers!

"But the noteworthy teams here are, to me, Kansas and Indiana. Tom Allen’s Hoosiers are now 3-0 and have looked the part of at least a top-35 team or so. On Saturday, for instance, they manhandled a Ball State that had just given Notre Dame fits."

Quote from Bill Connelly about Indiana in his latest S&P rankings.

Sagarin has us down at 55. Funny how different the models can rank us.

Right now, the discrepancies are largely due to how much preseason rankings are still factored in, and for Sagarin, it still seems like preseason rankings factor more than the games played, as Wisconsin only dropped  a handful of spots despite losing to the currently #61 team. For S&P, they have already moved largely away from preseason rankings. The small sample size can introduce introduce some flukey results and skew the data, as its not locked into a biased preseason ranking. Without factoring preseason bias, computers like IU as FIU and UVa have won their other 2 games, and BSU's only other loss was close against a decently rated team
