U.S. smashes Algeria in opening round

·

INDIANAPOLIS -- It didn't matter that at the end of the first period the U.S. team only scored 11 of its 20 field goal attempts. Or that U.S. team member Elton Brand scored all but 2 of the first 13 points for the team that has admitted an offensive weakness.

Aggressive defense to anchor team

·

Out with the old, in with the new. When Gerry DiNardo was named head football coach, he brought with him a new staff. With a new staff comes new philosophies, and the biggest change may occur on the defensive side of the football. Defensive coordinator Tim Kish brings a lot of Big Ten experience to IU, working last with Illinois in 2000. He brings a new style that will be a stark contrast to the previous seasons.

Being Gerry DiNardo

·

This Saturday, Gerry DiNardo will take the field in his first game as coach of the IU football team. While he's not likely to drive the team into Memorial Stadium on a double-decker bus a la Lee Corso, DiNardo's road to Bloomington has been a wild one. He's seen Heaven, Notre Dame football, and the other place, Vince McMahon's folly, the XFL. Now he's here in Bloomington trying to lead the Hoosiers from football purgatory.
