New-look Hoosiers begin spring practice

·

When the IU football team trains before and during the 2010 season, the players will wear workout shirts with the word “finish” scrawled in large letters across the back. But before the Hoosiers can finish, they’ll have to start. With spring practice kicking off today, IU coach Bill Lynch said at his press conference he is excited for new beginnings at Memorial Stadium.

Attendance increase major step for IU

·

By the end of the 2009 season, the IU football team had only won one more game than it had in the previous year, going 4-8. The team lost to Purdue again. It finished at the bottom of the Big Ten again. It was the second-worst team in at-home attendance in the Big Ten again. But maybe that last fact isn’t as clear-cut as it seems. Home attendance increased by an average of more than 10,051 fans per game, the third-largest increase in the nation.

Lynch introduces 2010 recruiting class

·

Recruiting is a matter of perspective for the IU coaching staff.

Jammie Kirlew

Gentle Giant

·

As the final whistle blew in IU’s 31-20 loss to Penn State on Nov. 14, the players walked out of Beaver Stadium knowing any shot of going to a bowl game was gone. Well, except for senior defensive end Jammie Kirlew.

To Saban, it's all about winning

·

Alabama football coach Nick Saban is known as arrogant, snobby, short-spoken and, after his appearance in “The Blind Side,” even as a movie star. But the fiery coach’s Belichick-like demeanor, succinct responses to the media, and track record suggest one thing above all others. The guy is a winner.

Hoosiers' crystal ball hazy

·

Fresh off a more than disappointing 4-8 season, the Hoosiers can officially pack up 2009 and prepare to unfurl 2010. Returning next season are the figure heads of IU football in junior quarterback Ben Chappell, sophomore wide receiver Tandon Doss, and, of course, IU coach Bill Lynch. But past that, the Hoosiers will enter their first season this decade with questions all around the board.







Hoosiers show glimpses of past and future in loss

·

The 2009 Hoosiers preached from August to November about the changes in the program and about how they were going to make football relevant at IU. In a 38-21 loss to Purdue, that progress was hard to find.
