Lamar coach: ‘Scott May is not going to come through that tunnel tonight’

While Indiana is expected to beat teams like Lamar, there are much different expectations for a team like Lamar coming into Assembly Hall.

But Lamar head coach Tic Price had an interesting response when asked whether his players would need to overcome any sort of intimidation factor playing the Hoosiers in Bloomington.

“Our kids are so young, they don’t know,” Price said. “They know about Indiana, and I think they respect the tradition here. Right before the game I said ‘Scott May is not going to come through that tunnel tonight. Isaiah Thomas is not going to come out through that tunnel tonight. That’s the ghost of the past. We gotta play the here and now. That’s what we did, but we played a very good basketball team tonight.”

Lamar did not show any fear against the Hoosiers in an 85-72 loss. While Indiana head coach Tom Crean talked after the game about his team’s inexperience and how it might have hurt the Hoosiers on the defensive end Saturday night, Price also felt like his team is going through a “maturation process.”

“Every team in the country goes through adversity. This is our time,” Price said. “We finally began to get a rhythm.”

Devin Davis back at Assembly Hall

Just three days after being released from an Indianapolis rehabilitation hospital, Devin Davis was back at Assembly Hall on Saturday night for the first time since suffering a traumatic brain injury when he jumped in front of a vehicle driven by teammate Emmitt Holt in the early morning hours of Nov. 1.

Davis, who was joined by his father, Devin Davis Sr., at the game, was in the locker room with his teammates before emerging with them for pregame warmups. He watched from midcourt along side assistant coach Tim Buckley, even joking with his teammates at times. Screen Shot 2014-11-22 at 7.45.15 PM

Coleman breaks Dunbar’s single-season rushing record

COLUMBUS, Ohio — He smiled when he was told that his 90-yard touchdown run in the third quarter of Saturday’s 42-27 loss at Ohio State was the second-longest in Ohio Stadium history.

That wasn’t even Tevin Coleman’s most noteworthy feat of the day.

Coleman broke Vaughn Dunbar’s Indiana single-season rushing record with 228 yards and three touchdowns against the Buckeyes. The big day for Coleman gives him 1,906 yards for the season, besting Dunbar’s mark of 1,805 set in 1991.

“It’s a blessing,” Coleman said.

He captured the top spot in IU’s record book on his 90-yard run that gave the Hoosiers a 20-14 lead midway through the third. Coleman also had touchdown runs of 52 and two yards.

The only run in IU history longer than Coleman’s is Mickey Erehar’s 98-yarder at Iowa in 1912, while Coleman’s 228 yards were the third-most ever allowed by an Ohio State defense.

Coleman was held to only 50 first-half yards until breaking through in the second half.

“That’s how it’s gonna be against these big teams,” Coleman said. “First, you’re not gonna hit big runs on a great defense. You gotta keep running, hitting the holes hard and soften them up. Eventually a big one’s gonna come for you.”

Wilson sat Coleman for two offensive series following his long run, saying the IU running back was winded. It’s not the first time that has happened this season.

“I’m working to increase my stamina and get better at that,” Coleman said. “But things happen and he’s just looking out for me.”

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said he pulled Coleman aside before the game to tell the IU junior how much he was admired. Meyer added that once Coleman gets in second gear, he’s tough to catch.

“I asked Kevin (Wilson) about him — a great Christian kid, great kid,” Meyer said. “Wish him well in the NFL, if that’s what his desire because he’s a really good back. Top 10 back — maybe higher than that.”

Marshall’s 4 second-half scores lead Ohio State to 42-27 win over Indiana

Posted by in Football on Saturday, Nov. 22, 2014 at 3:28 PM.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Indiana gave Ohio State a scare, but couldn’t complete the upset bid in a 42-27 loss to the No. 6 Buckeyes before an announced 101,426 at Ohio Stadium.

Ohio State receiver Jalin Marshall caught three second-half touchdown passes and returned a punt for a score that put the Buckeyes ahead for good. With the win, the Ohio State clinches the Big Ten East Division title.

Indiana remains winless in the Big Ten and plays Purdue next weekend to retain possession of the Old Oaken Bucket.

Tevin Coleman broke Vaughn Dunbar’s single-season rushing record when he broke free on a 90-yard touchdown run that gave Indiana a 20-14 lead midway through the third quarter.

But Ohio State regained the advantage late in the quarter after stopping IU with a three-and-out inside the 5-yard line. Jalin Marshall returned Erich Toth’s punt 54 yards through the middle of the field to put Ohio State on top 21-20 with 2:20 left in the third.

The Buckeyes followed with 28 consecutive points before Coleman’s third touchdown of the day, a 52-yard run with 1:13 left to play, capped the scoring.

Coleman finished with 228 yards on 27 carries, also running for a two-yard score for Indiana’s first points of the afternoon. Coleman now has an IU single-season record 1,906 yards.

Ohio State scored three plays into the game when Ezekiel Elliott. 65 yards for a score. Ohio State followed with a 65-yard drive on its second possession, which ended on a four-yard touchdown pass from J.T. Barrett to Jeff Heuerman.

Trailing 14-0 in the first seven minutes of the game, Indiana used a big play from Zander Diamont to keep its second drive alive and get its first points. The freshman scrambled for a first down, zigging and zagging over the middle of the field before breaking free for a 53-yard gain. Coleman dove into the end zone from two yards out on the following play to cut Ohio State’s lead to 14-7.

The Hoosiers caught a break moments later when Michael Thomas fumbled a catch on Ohio State’s ensuing drive, giving IU auspicious field position at the OSU 31. Indiana settled for a 30-yard field goal by Griffin Oakes.

In the meantime, Antonio Allen intercepted J.T. Barrett on back-to-back drives. The second pick came on a tipped ball near the goal line. Allen brought it back 19 yards to the IU 21, where the Hoosiers began a seven-play, 59-yard drive that ended with a 37-yard field goal from Oakes.

Indiana’s defense stopped Ohio State on its final five drives leading into halftime, outscoring the Buckeyes 13-0 and outgaining them 213-99 over that span.

Diamont completed 11 of his 27 passes for 114 yards. Shane Wynn finished with seven catches for 93 yards to lead IU. Ohio State outgained Indiana 527-395. Barrett completed 25 of 35 passes for 302 yards and four touchdowns.

10:39: Morehead State found some offense after the cold start, scoring on six of eight possessions to close within five at one point. HOOSIERS 23, EAGLES 16
