Too Bad He's Dead: Terry Hoeppner

Indiana Football coach Terry Hoeppner died this morning at 59.

He may not have had the greatest record at Indiana, but he brought more enthusiasm to the job than anybody else in the job in my lifetime, other than Bill Mallory, who actually won.

I guess they will let interim coach Bill Lynch take this season, and if he doesn't get them to a bowl, they can go out and hire a new hot young coach.
But, let's hope they rise to the occasion and go to a bowl this season. Why couldn't have been Cam Cameron?

Real life talk: This is very sad for Coach Hoeppner and his family. I will pray for them.

Sports talk: This loss will set the IU football program back four to five years.
