Hoosier Morning

1. HOOSIERS HQ
Brian Williams has found the motivation necessary to make him one of IU’s top cornerbacks, Dustin writes.

Retirement marks the end of Kit Klingelhoffer’s 42-year run at Indiana University, but not the end of his desire to beat Purdue, Andy writes.

2. IT’S INDIANA
Former IU player and assistant soccer coach Caleb Porter is headed to the MLS, but will finish out the year at Akron, George M. Thomas of the Akron Beacon Journal writes.

Porter showed loyalty in sticking out the season with the Zips, according to the Akron Beacon Journal’s Marla Ridenour.

3. BIG TEN COUNTRY
Like Indiana’s Kevin Wilson, Minnesota’s Jerry Kill looks to improve in his second season as head coach when the Gophers open the season tonight at UNLV, the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s Phil Miller writes.

Michigan running back Fitz Touissaint should be sitting out Saturday’s game vs. Alabama after pleading guilty to a DWI, Jamie Samuelsen of the Detroit Free Press blogs.

4. ONE FOR THE ROAD
In honor of Caleb Porter, the theme song in Akron: Robert Plant and Alison Krauss with “Gone, Gone, Gone.”

  1. Good for Caleb. Happy for his advancement, and happy that he did it in a relatively high-class way.

    And, ahem, maybe now it’s a little clearer to all those “the-fix-is-in” fans from a few years ago why hiring Todd Yeagley was the better long-term move?

  2. And just so it’s clear: yes, I know Caleb turned down opportunities to interview. Caleb even said that Todd was the one that Indiana should hire.
