Hoosier Morning

Jacarri Alexander is happy to be on the football field for Indiana, and he’s not afraid to let everybody know it, Dustin writes.

Former Hoosier Rodger Saffold was a limited participant in practice for the St. Louis Rams Wednesday, just three days after being carted off the field against the Detroit Lions, the Associated Press reports.

The IU women’s soccer team downed Indiana State, 3-1, to improve to 5-2-1, we reported.

Ball State ranks eighth in the nation in rushing, including 252 yards on the ground against No. 11 Clemson, entering Saturday’s game at IU, Doug Zaleski of the Muncie Star Press writes.

Tom Crean has a chance this season at Indiana to add the one thing missing from his resume — a national championship, CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein writes.

Notre Dame got what it wanted, thumbing its nose at the Big Ten in the process, with the move to the ACC, Rob Oller of the Columbus Dispatch writes.

Maybe the Big Ten should stop scheduling Notre Dame in all sports after the Irish spurned the league to join the ACC, Tom Dienhart of BTN.com writes.

Coach Brad Stevens dismissed guard Chrishawn Hopkins from the Butler basketball team Wednesday, Kyle Neddenriep of the Indianapolis Star reports.

With Notre Dame heading southeast for the ACC, it seems like a good time to roll out Alabama’s “Song of the South.”

    The stunt Calhoun played with UConn is another reason why it was a great idea to fire Bobby because he would have pulled the same crap here.

    Just like he did at Texas Tech……quit mid-season so his worthless son Pat would be made coach.

    And set the program back 5 to 10 years.

    Good riddance.

    If Knight had quit 4 years before, like he said he should have, instead of mailing it in all that time, our program would have never imploded.

    Yup the Prez at TT was just as stupid as Brand and fired Pat and ended up with their own MD(Billy Clyde). In these 2 cases we will stay focused on who set back these 2 programs, Presidents, new AD’s and their anointed hires.

    Mailing it in for four years? That is interesting logic, especially when you consider that it was Knight’s team that made it to the finals the year he was fired. Had he coached that finals game, IU would have had another banner hanging is Assembly Hall.

    On another topic, how long do we have to wait before IU’s Offensive and Defensive lines are bigger than BSU? Just compared the two rosters, and once again, both of BSU’s lines are bigger than IU’s lines. IU has one or two guys listed at over 300 pounds. BSU has nine or ten! They have a nose tackle that is listed at 327 pounds!

    Come on coach Wilson, we have to be bigger than a MAC team!

    HC, I’m by no means saying I know where the blame lies, but the proximate cause in both cases was RMK.

    Po, I watched last years game too. Some of that BSU size was lard. I suspect the same is true this year. Coach Wilson does not want that and will not except it. His O philosophy is for lineman to move laterally, easily and quickly. If and when IU ends up with lines full of 300+lb. men they will not have 40 lb. of gut or the corresponding 40 lb. of ass.

    Chet, that is your opinion, please enjoy it. I on the other hand reject it completely.

    Well, no, it’s not an opinion. It’s a statement. That’s why I said I didn’t know where the blame lies. Perhaps you misunderstood the meaning of proximate cause.

    Not since the 4th or 5th grade. The proximate cause was boneheads in authority not looking down the road far enough to determine if new hires could be more detrimental to their schools athletic dept futures. Hell they could have thrown darts and gotten better upgrades than MD, BCG and KS.
