Source: Boise State’s Pease a candidate for offensive staff

A source said Boise State assistant head coach/wide receivers coach Brent Pease is a candidate for a spot on Indiana’s offensive staff and has taken a visit to Bloomington. The source was not entirely certain if Pease is being considered for the offensive coordinator position, but considering that he was paid $185,308 this season according to the USA Today coaches salary database, it seems unlikely that he would be willing to take a position on the staff other than offensive coordinator.

There is nothing to suggest that Pease’s hiring is a done deal, but he does have an impressive resume. At Boise State, he’s developed three All-WAC receivers in Austin Pettis, Titus Young and Jeremy Childs, They add to an offense that is ranked third in the nation in total offense this season and second in points per game.

Before joining Boise State in 2006, Pease was an offensive coordinator at Baylor for three years and at Kentucky for two seasons in 2001-02. The Wildcats went 7-5 in his second year with Jared Lorenzen. Before that, Pease coached at FCS powers Montana and Northern Arizona.

Indiana drops third straight

For the third straight game, Indiana erased all or most of a double-digit deficit only for the comeback to eventually be rendered meaningless.

The Hoosiers rallied back from a 14-point halftime deficit against Penn State to take a second-half lead, but still allowed the Nittany Lions to run away with it late for a 69-60 win in front of 14,952 at Assembly Hall.

The Hoosiers took a 48-47 advantage on a layup by sophomore guard Maurice Creek with 8:45 to go, but Penn State answered with two jumpers by senior forward Jeff Brooks who led the Nittany Lions with a career-high 23 points. The Hoosiers cut it back to one point, but Penn State went on a 10-2 run to take a nine-point advantage with 58 seconds to go, and the Hoosiers couldn’t mount a comeback from there.

The loss is the third straight for IU (9-5, 0-1), and it’s disappointing for the Hoosiers considering the Nittany Lions appeared to be one of the more beatable teams on their schedule. The Nittany Lions lost to Maine earlier this month.

Senior guard Talor Battle had 19 points for Penn State and senior forward David Jackson had 15 points and eight rebounds. The Nittany Lions shot 53.8 percent from the field, including 8-for-17 from beyond the 3-point arc.

Junior guard Verdell Jones led the Hoosiers with 15 points while freshman Victor Oladipo had 14 and sophomore Jordan Hulls had 13 to go with four assists. Sophomore forward Christian Watford, who appeared lethargic and possibly ill, had three points and was 1-for-5 from the field.
