The game-day experience

From the press box we couldn’t really tell how loud the music was Thursday.

But we’ve gotten a lot of feedback on the subject. Though Bill Lynch said he didn’t think it was a problem, I’ve heard from multiple people that Ben Chappell appeared to be trying to silence the music at one point as he was trying to communicate with the offense.

So we’re looking for your thoughts. Share them below.


Lynch’s Press Conference

Lynch just finished his press conference and said a lot of the things you’d expect. He again called the 19-13 victory over Eastern Kentucky a “great win,” but lamented some problems with blocking and the running game. He said he thought the Hoosiers had too many turnovers and gave up too many big plays. Though there was apparently some concern that crowd noise was a problem for the offense and led to illegal procedure penalties, Lynch said he thought the sound was a good thing.

Lynch also said he expects cornerback Donnell Jones to be back for Saturday’s game against Western Michigan, and with Ray Fisher back from his one-half suspension, the Hoosiers will be at full strength in the secondary, which he admitted, needed to play better.

More on this later.


Post-game thoughts


Lynch: “It wasn’t a thing of beauty”

Hear Bill Lynch’s post-game comments here.

Unfortunately I missed the opening line. It was: “Well, it was a great win for us.”
