Discuss: Indiana vs. Iowa

Indiana not sleeping on Iowa again

Indiana was in a situation similar to this just over a year ago.

Fans were starting to believe the Hoosiers had turned the corner. They’d survived, for the time being, the devastating injury to star guard Maurice Creek, winning three of their first six Big Ten games, including back-to-back victories over Minnesota and Penn State.

The next game after the Penn State win, their first true road victory of the season, they had Iowa at home. It was the only conference team that they had defeated in 2008-09 with the makeshift group that emerged from the rubble of the Kelvin Sampson recruiting scandal. For the first time in the conference season, they were favored.

But then they were crushed 58-43 by Iowa and didn’t win again for well over a month.

Indiana coach Tom Crean initially disputed any inference that the Hoosiers underestimated Iowa, but admitted later that it may have been the case.

He said Friday that there’s no way that happens this time. The Hoosiers have lost to Iowa twice at Carver-Hawkeye Arena since then, and the Hawkeyes recently crushed Michigan State 72-52, further proving they are not to be overlooked. (more…)

Indiana names Brandon Shelby cornerbacks coach

Indiana has tabbed Brandon Shelby, cornerbacks coach at Louisiana-Monroe, as its cornerbacks coach.

Shelby played at Oklahoma from 2001-2004, earning All-Big 12 honors as a defensive back. He was also part of the Oklahoma coaching staff in 2006.

Shelby coached at San Diego in 2008, Portland State in 2009 and was at Louisiana-Monroe in 2010.

Shelby’s addition finally finishes Indiana’s coaching staff.

Doss, Brewer, Turner to attend Combine

Former Indiana wide receivers Tandon Doss and Terrance Turner and James Brewer will attend the NFL Combine according to a release from IU sports info. The combine at LucasOil Stadium in Indianapolis runs from Feb. 23 to March 1.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana offensive tackle James Brewer and wide receivers Terrance Turner and Tandon Doss have accepted invitations to the NFL Scouting Combine. The Combine begins Feb. 23 and will run through March 1 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
