IU’s Mitch of all trades

(09/10/08 11:30pm)

Unlike some members of the IU football team, Mitchell Evans is not an outspoken personality. He just plays the game –  wherever that may be. For the last two years, Evans has essentially played the role of utility man for the Hoosiers, the man who can do just near anything when it comes to football. “He is such a good athlete, you can move him around anywhere on the field wherever your team needs him,” senior wide receiver Andrew Means said. And move him is just what the Hoosiers have done.

Instead of Michigan State dealing the final blow of the game it was IU who did itself in their 42-29 defeat.With 1:39 left in the third quarter, backup quarterback Ben Chappell connected with sophomore wideout Terrance Turner for a 97-yard touchdown strike. The play made both the Michigan State and Hoosier crowds stand up and cheer. The Hoosier crowd was happy because of the touchdown, the Spartans because there was a little yellow piece of cloth 108 behind Turner’s touchdown celebration.

Metrodome notoriously unkind to visiting Hoosiers

(10/02/08 11:03pm)

The last time the IU football team knocked off the Minnesota Golden Gophers in Minneapolis, the price of a gallon of gas was about $1.08. Now at .500 through four games, IU faces Minnesota, who “is a good football team and a much-improved football team from a year ago,” said IU coach Bill Lynch. IU pummeled Minnesota 40-20 at Memorial Stadium last season, but this weekend, the team plays in Minneapolis, a place where the Hoosiers haven’t won in 15 years. This time around, there could be some fresh faces taking the field for the Cream and Crimson.

Statistics aren’t always what they appear to be.Despite the difference in rankings, the Gophers prevailed to defeat the Hoosiers, 16-7.In the first half, the Hoosiers only held the ball for 9:27, and out of their seven possessions in that frame, the visitors from Bloomington went three-and-out four times, and none lasted more than three plays.As a result, the Hoosiers were limited to 17 first-half plays as opposed to the 40 plays the Golden Gophers ran.
