Four turnovers. Twenty-one unanswered points to begin the game. The Old Oaken Bucket going to back to Purdue for a 70th time.

The Indiana Hoosiers ended the 2009 season Saturday with a 38-21 loss at home to rival Purdue, putting a fitting period on the whole campaign.

Again, Indiana found a way to fight, and put itself in the game. Like it had so many times this season, against teams like Iowa, Northwestern and Penn State, the Hoosiers had moments when they looked like far better than what they are, a 4-8 football team.

“It was a tough football game from our standpoint,” Indiana coach Bill Lynch said. “Two things stand out in my mind. Throughout the season, I think these guys really battled and kept fighting and I think they did the same thing tonight, all the way until the last play of the game.”

But the four turnovers — two interceptions, two fumbles — were killers. The final interception came with 6:09 left, when quarterback Ben Chappell threw an intended screen pass into the arms of Purdue defensive linemen Kawann Short.

“What was uncharacteristic is what I think was the difference in the game, turnovers and kicking game,” Lynch said.

Indiana was down 10 at the time, and had the momentum, and many of the more than 48,000 fans at Memorial Stadium, were behind the Hoosiers.

Darius Wilis ran for 142 yards on 19 carries. Chappell, while he threw two interceptions, also had two touchdown passes (to Damarlo Belcher and Mitchell Evans) and a TD run.

It was the last game for 21 seniors.

“The thing about this season is that we basically have been trying to put this team back on the right path after really being shambles last year,” Rodger Saffold said. “We wanted to make sure everybody knew how relentless and tough we were, and how we were willing to fight to the very end. We don’t want to continue where we left off. We want them to exceed that to make sure they are even better than we were.”


Crean gets Sheehey’s letter

Tom Crean finally got Will Sheehey’s letter of intent and discussed the addition of the 6-5 guard from Florida on Saturday.

“Will Sheehey to me is a guy that is the epitome of what we want to build our program on,” Crean said. “He’s got a great basketball temperament. He’s got  real attitude to improve. He’s got athleticism. He’s not even scratching the surface with his body or with his ability to really utilize that athleticism yet, but he’s got some real skills, especially shooting the basketball. His mid-range game is outstanding. His 3-point game looks good to me with a lot of room to get better. He can finish at the basket. He finishes with a real will and resolve. That’s what we like. He’s almost 6-6, he’s grown an inch and a half, almost two inches in a year. He comes very highly recommended from one of my former coaches in Darrin Horn and a friend of mine at Syracuse named Mike Hopkins. I really respect his high school coach a lot. I respect his AAU program. He’s played high-level basketball. And then you really research him and you see what kind of family he comes from. You see how serious he is academically. You listen to him ask the questions that he has. He comes in as a true student athlete. Make no mistake about it, his athleticism along with (Victor Oladipo’s) is going to really upgrade us in a year.”
