The team initially formed in 2007 as the South Central Cutters and participated in the MidWest Football League. That first year the Cutters went 7 – 3 in league play and lost to the eventual MFL champs, Adams County Patriots, by a score of 28 – 22 in a semi-final playoff game.
In 2008 the Cutters switched to the Interstate Football League and changed their name to the Indiana Cutters. The Cutters lost only one regular season game that year to the K.C. Mustangs of Bourbon, Indiana. In the final game of the year they traveled north and beat the Mustangs in the championship by a score of 38 – 37. In that game – one of the most exciting at any level of football - the Cutters overcame a nine-point deficit with just over four minutes to go. The Cutters became the “talk of the IFL” in their first season in the league.
2009 was equally exciting for Cutters fans as the team again lost only one game the entire regular season – this time to the Indiana Generals. Both teams peaked during the playoffs in September setting up the championship game at Arlington High School in Indianapolis. The Cutters defense held the high-powered Generals offense to just two field goals and intercepted a pass late in the game. The Cutters offense re-awakened and scored the only touchdown of the night. The Cutters won their second consecutive IFL championship by the score of 7 – 6.
The 2010 season was disappointing for the Cutters since they went 3 – 5 in league play and missed the playoffs for the first time in team history. In retrospect, the season was a ”rebuilding year” – the Cutters lost 15 of 22 starters from the 2009 team and worked to incorporate a new coaching staff.
The 2011 season was much improved over the 2010 campaign. The Cutters found themselves in second place in the league going into the playoffs. It took a blocked PAT with seconds left in the fourth quarter and then one big play in over time to send the team into the championship game. The championship game paired the Cutters up with the #1 seed and undefeated West Central Wildcats. It was a hard fought game but the Cutters came out short of their third IFL championship and ended the season 9-3
The 2012 season was another solid season for the team as the Cutters went 5-3 and missed the playoffs by a single point. The season was highlighted by big wins over the Kentucky Xtreme and a close season finale with the West Central Wildcats who came from behind in the fourth quarter and won the game by a point.
The 2013 season brought a third championship back to Bloomington, Indiana. The organization won its third championship in seven years with Head Coach Eric Anderson calling the shots in his first year with the team. The team's final record was 9-1 it's only loss coming to the eventual league runner up Noble County Wolfpack.
Fresh off a Championship run, the Cutters had high expectations in 2014. They entered into the CFL which contained many new teams and new challenges. After fighting thru injuries much of the year, the team came together to close the regular season out on a high note. In a grinder of a game, the Cutters defeated the Marion County Rockets in the season finale to make it to the playoffs. They then traveled to face the Ohio Crush in the first round. After mounting a huge come back, the Cutters fell just short to the eventual League Runner Up. The Crush mounted a last second drive to wrap up an exciting season filled with ups and downs.
