How does IU football replace Micah McFadden?

Indiana Hoosiers football may not have a storied history, but that doesn’t take anything away from how great of a career Micah McFadden had in Bloomington. The problem now for Tom Allen is replacing him both as a player and a leader.

On today’s episode of Locked on Hoosiers, Jacob Rude (@JacobRude) previews the linebackers and secondary to wrap up the positional preview series for the football team. The two positions are intertwined within the defense under Allen, which makes it a perfect combo to share an episode.

There is no hole bigger than the one left in the linebacking core from McFadden. Cam Jones will help alleviate some of that burden as he returns this fall but the other LB spot will be up in the air with Dasan McCullough, Bradley Jennings and Myles Jackson candidates to step up this season.

The show wraps by looking at the secondary where there are far fewer questions as they should anchor the defense and the team this season. Tiawan Mullen will be the most talented player on that side of the ball along with Devon Matthews, Jaylin Williams and Noah Pierre.
