  1. And…The Navy Seal killed Tuesday attended IU in 2004-2005 & was on the track team. His father attended IU in the mid-70’s and was a 3 time All American swimmer.

  2. There was a lot of whining and crying about the football team this year, but they really played a tough B1G schedule. Seeing that OSU put 5 players in the FIRST ROUND this year was impressive. We almost took those guys out. We had 3 guys drafted total.

    I expect more jokes about playing in a meaningless bowl will probably follow, but the trajectory of the team last year may have been steeper that we thought. Sure, there were a lot of problems and flaws with our team. But that extension was well earned.
