Indiana was invested against the Hawkeyes, no one moreso than Harrison Niego, and the payoff was a share of first place in the Big Ten, I wrote.

  1. The winds of football at Puke keep blowing colder. They just lost their DB coach to Texas. He was the best coach they had. Hazell will be making another ho-hum addition to his staff. Also announced yesterday their AD Morgan Burke will be retiring July 2017.

  2. HC, that’s good news in the short term, but maybe bad news in the longer term.

    Glad to hear that the “experts” see Jason Spriggs as rising into the first round of the draft. But I still wonder if Spriggs’ ranking in the draft would be even higher if he’d played for a more successful team that got more national exposure? Perhaps his performance at the combine will erase any negative bias and elevate him further up the board. Regardless, it’s great news for Wilson and IU football.
