Thigpen surprised by contract offer

·

Marcus Thigpen knew ESPN wasn’t going to rave over his blazing speed during last weekend’s NFL Draft coverage. He was an undersized IU wide receiver-turned-running back who stood in the shadow of Kellen Lewis and wasn’t the go-to guy in the red zone because of James Hardy’s presence.

Lynch revamping public image

Like most coaches, IU football coach Bill Lynch casts a tame poker face during the most uncomfortable situations.

Senior makes switch to cornerback to help team

·

Last year, senior Ray Fisher caught passes from quarterbacks Kellen Lewis and Ben Chappell. This spring he is trying to intercept them. Fisher switched from wide receiver to cornerback to help the football team’s defense, which ranked near the bottom of the Big Ten in most defensive categories last year.

Running backs shine in spring game

IU coach Bill Lynch stressed  last week the importance of an improved rushing attack. The Hoosiers’ renewed emphasis on the backfield was evident Saturday afternoon, as Demetrius McCray and Darius Willis led the Crimson team to a 28-27 win in the Spring Game.

IU takes the field in annual intra-squad Spring Game

The Spring Game, which is slated for 2 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Stadium, will mark the end of the offseason practice schedule for the Hoosiers. The IU men’s basketball team will sign autographs at the event from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Offense will look new, but so will defense

·

Last season, IU suffered the injury bug so bad, it was almost OK to use it as an excuse for the disappointing 3-9 record. Not this year, though – not with this rigorous schedule that boasts many bowl teams. The Hoosiers’ defense must step up even more than the offense.

Pistol offense excels at spring scrimmage

·

If IU has any shot to beat any conference foes in its challenging schedule, Chappell, Lewis and Payton must set the tone early and take control when things go into disarray. Don’t be alarmed if you see the ball in their hands when the game is on the line, either.

Lynch vows to make offense more productive

·

IU coach Bill Lynch vows to improve the Hoosier offense. Among his new implementations, Lynch said  the Hoosiers must gain respect in its running game. Bolstering the backfield attack will alleviate a lot of pressure off quarterbacks Kellen Lewis and Ben Chappell.

Brown’s attitude deserves recognition

·

Brown is the epitome of the blue-collar football player. He brings his lunch pail to every game and does everything in his power to help the team win. Taunting is not in his vocabulary.

Ready to rebuild, take two

Jammie Kirlew was lost for words. And to be honest, I felt for the Hoosier defensive end. I really did.

IU suffers worst loss to Purdue in more than a century

With more than nine seconds remaining the game, IU made its first defensive stop of the day. In the 84th annual battle for the Old Oaken Bucket, IU was dominated in every facet of football en route to a 62-10 pounding. The Hoosiers managed just 214 total yards as their defense let up 596.
