It was a bad omen for sure, as a freshman on the Indiana football team was spotted wearing a jersey that could not even spell Indiana right. The Hoosiers were coming off one of their best seasons in over a generation. They had a huge mid-afternoon kickoff at the Iowa Hawkeyes, another team expected to make noise in Big Ten play.Did Indiana's David Holloman's jersey read 'indinia' off the field?

The jersey of freshman running back David Holloman read “Indinia,” according to a video posted — and then deleted — by the Hoosiers’ official athletics Twitter account.Is it Indiana or indinia on the Hoosiers' jersey number?
Among a sea of white and crimson Indiana uniforms, the mistake isn’t obvious. However, when the Hoosiers posted a straight-on shot of Holloman to their account, the error is clear as can be. Instead of the normal “Indiana” that rests above the football jersey’s number, Holloman’s read “Indinia.”
