Hoosier Morning for Dec. 19

Josh Newkirk nearly redeemed a wildly inconsistent and erratic game against Butler with his defense, Mike writes.

Indiana must make itself uncomfortable in order to do the same to opponents, I wrote.

JUCO All-American linebacker Mike McGinnis committed to IU football on Sunday, Mike writes.

On IU basketball, laughter and wearing shorts in winter, Pete DiPrimio of the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel writes.

IU now turns itself to its final dress rehearsals of the season, Chris Goff of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette writes.

A few examples of where the IU defense went wrong in Saturday’s loss to Butler via a film session, by Ryan Corazza of Inside the Hall.

Former Hoosier running back Jordan Howard went over 1,000 yards on Sunday but would rather win, Adam L. Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times writes.

There are plenty of woes to go around with IU, Purdue and Notre Dame football, John Mutka of the Chicago Tribune writes.

For the comfortable Hoosiers and their equally comfortable opponents, “Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd.


  1. Sad to see Howard waste his talents playing for a dumpster fire like the Bears. I hope he gets a shot with an actual NFL team before he becomes just another sad story of a career wasted in Chicago.

  2. Yes he certainly is a playmaker on a team that has no others. If he had been wearing a Buccaneers uni yesterday the Boys would have had an L hung on them.

  3. There’s always Cleveland. You get a great team and a Gold Coast to rival Lake Shore Dr.
    Timing is everything. One moment you’re on the Carolina Panthers playing in a Super Bowl….Next moment you’re on the Can’tfinda Panthers.

    Chicago….We still have the most beautiful city on the planet. We have Michigan Ave…We have Sayers and Piccolo. We have the incomparable Jordan. No, there will never even be a mini MJ…Maybe another Minnie Mouse but not a mini MJ.
    We have Sweetness. We have the ’85 Bears and the Shufflin’ Crew.
    All of that would be all I need in a lifetime of love for the greatest sports city. But then…..
    We have the HAWKS. We have Billy Williams and Mr. Ernie Banks. We have Jack Brickhouse and Harry Caray. Only we have the walls with the ivy.
    We have the “World Series Champion” Cubs.
    Life can be a struggle but it has many rewards. Chicago has always mirrored the pace of life…Sometimes the greatest moments are worth the wait.

  4. My beloved Bears will continue to dissapoint until the team gets a new owner. What a shame that a once great organization has been reduced to this mess.

  5. I would also suggest not bringing in QB’s from Indiana. Points guards? Yes. QBs? No.
    Grossman and Cutler(a.k.a. Fumble Laurels and Hardly Worth It)…provided much comedy while also sucking a lot of life out of some pretty talented teams.
