Indiana University Football Gets Taken To The Mat

Monday, September 26th, 2011

I'm sure our audience's patience has been exasperated by our insistence on bringing you constant ramblings involving Indiana University football. But hey, we're proud alums and apparently enjoy self-torture. But just when you think it can't get any worse, another fall Saturday rolls around. Luckily, I was at a wedding Saturday night ...

It's never a good sign when the best receiver in your team's history played during FDR's administration, but when Indiana's your team that's the type of thing that happens. (My buddy's grandfather is the still the leading rusher in DePaul history, but at least they gave up football before the ...

New Indiana Football Coach Is Kiel-ing It

University of Virginia head coach Al Groh is now former University of Virginia head coach Al Groh. Why do I care? Because Groh’s Cavaliers absolutely destroyed my beloved Indiana Hoosiers 47-7 earlier this season. It was one of UVA’s three wins this year.  It begs the question, if Groh can be fired, than ...

Indiana Has Major Issues With Officiating In Iowa Loss

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

The Indiana Hoosiers are contacting the Big Ten about the egregious officiating job done during last week's Iowa/Indiana game in Iowa City. In particular, the Hoosiers have an issue with an overturned touchdown reception in which the original call was made by an official who was in perfect position to ...
