  1. How can Tevin NOT be the offensive player of the year? For over half the season he had not only NO passing game; but, no THREAT of a passing game! Truly a remarkable season. Thanks, tevin, for being a Hoosier!

  2. I think Tevin Coleman would have run for more yard than Gordon behind Wiscy’s O-line!

    Hope Coleman stays for his Senior season, but if he’s going to be a top 20 draft pick then best of luck to Tevin in the NFL.

  3. No conspiracy theory against IU here, anyone who thinks Indiana U’s jacket NOT being one of those shown on the’s “SHOP” page;…who could believe such a thing, that the BTN ignores one of the original members of the Big Ten Conference when peddling its best jacket wear on its site…

    Until, grandchildren on my lap, I went to a ‘shop’ screen looking for Christmas presents for the six and four year old (he’s going to be 6’5″ and weight 293 lbs and play qb) rabid fans. I watched as the screen turned to the first site featuring the jackets of all 14 B1G teams….errrrhh no….13 ….whaa? What the _____!!!…..!!!

    There they were, the wonderful, big and colorful jackets for each of the B1G teams…..ahhh except …..>>INDIANA…NO INDIANA jacket!!!, none…not zilch….s___(not nice expression)___w you Hoosierism! What!!??!!

    No way …Not the Trident! Not the State flag!! Not the block I!!! Nothing!!! Nada!!! The only Is’ there are the Orange and Blue Illinois, the Black and Go0ld Iowa…hell…even our illegitimate children from Purdue are shown…but …NO HOOSIERS…not striped, not diagonal, not horizontal…

    I guess I do have to wonder about the Sports Information folk drawing their money on 17th St. or of Fred Glass, a well known and respected marketeer and promoter from Indianapolis did not notice this insult to…aahhh forget it! You don’t want us, we don’t want you B1G…Maybe it is time to ask for monitoring of your books B1G and see if there are patterns favoring some teams and some…well, you sure as hell did not ignore us when the very thought of the front door at the B1G offices falling in and an angry, red sweater Robert Montgomery Knight tearing the furn iture into think toothpicks, or using the Comish’s tie to floss his teeth was a likely possibility.

    Where did you guys get your Marketing and Administration degrees from…the University of North Carolina…even their more privileged graduates know that Indiana is part of the B1G!!!! Could someone in the Sports Department of the HT of Bloomington in the non-existent State of Indiana call Fred Glass and ask him if it is time for him to wake up from his nap?

    Explains all those calls doesn’t it!

    (PS…did we pay an equal part with the other B1G teams for that screen that does not show the Hoosier jacket??? )

  4. Coleman would have run for more yards behind Wisconsin’s line but he wouldn’t have run for more. Gordon runs “through” big hits and contact and though Coleman runs through the first tackle or two, he isn’t as strong as Gordon. There’s no shame in finishing 2nd to that guy.
