Indiana Football Remains In Hole

Indiana football needs a priest: not for last rites, but for an exorcism, since an evil demon has possessed it for as long as one cares to remember. Even the moments of Indiana's triumphs are tainted by bad luck, or at worst tragedy, as exemplified by the Hoosiers actually getting a talented coach up to the challenge (Terry Hoeppner,) climbing out of the basement of the Big Ten, and then losing the talented coach to brain cancer last year.

↵The sinkhole in the endzone opened up due to recent heavy rains. It would be nice to cash in the ten year warranty on the field, which was installed in 2003, but remember: this is Indiana. The company that installed the turf went out of business in 2004.
