Rose Bowl?

Greg Middleton - Hoosiers Football
► IU's defense has emerged as the NCAA leader in sacks thanks to Indy's tandem of Greg Middleton (pictured above) and Will Patterson.
► Kellen Lewis should win BigTen PoW honors after his 5 TD performance, including 200 rushing yards.
► James Hardy is only 5 TDs shy of the school record (30) after only 21 games played.
► Austin Starr (no relation) has missed only one FG in 8 attempts, including a 48-yarder last week vs WMU. This wouldn't be a compelling statistic if you haven't followed IU football for the past decade, but it's a major boost when there's 3 or 4 games each season where IU is on the short end of a single-score deficit. It was so bad that PATs weren't automatic!
► I'm still not a fan of Head Coach Bill Lynch, especially with his horrific play-calling, but Hep's upperclassmen are shining with an undefeated record heading into BigTen play. Without Michigan or Ohio $tate on the schedule this year, the Hoosiers' chances of making a bowl game are as realistic as they've been since the Trent Green era. Speaking of the aging Dolphins QB, I offer you this gem from an IndyStar article regarding Bill Bellicheat:

But Miami Dolphins quarterback Trent Green was among those doubting the sincerity of Belichick's apology, comparing the coach to the megalomaniacal Marine played by Jack Nicholson in the movie "A Few Good Men."

"Belichick is sitting there, and you know he is getting peeved that he is even in there - the audacity to bring him in and question him," Green said, laughing. "The visual I have is that eventually Belichick kind of snapped and said, 'You're darn right I (did).'"

Hyperbolic Obit for Hyperbolic Orbit

Did you see the lunar eclipse this morning? Did you see the one last month!? Do you even watch the sky, bro?? Comet Leonard [named after Colts All-Pro Darius Leonard] aka c/2021, the year's best & brightest, will make it's first and only appearance in the East before sunrise (between Big Dipper's handle & Arcturus) and then in the western sky after sunset starting on the 14th, looking towards the sun (ouch!)  I say "only" appearance because this happened 80,000 years ago but let's be honest they didn't have the tools we have now, and we're not yet positive this'll be visible to the unaided eye. But we do know it's hyperbolic orbit will soon fling the comet out of the Milky Way, and possibly into another solar system lightyears away.  RIP Comet Leonard 12/12/21 You're a Star (& comet)

64-team bracket BLANK

Go ahead and knock yourself out with this blank bracket, but I ( and Joe Lunardi ) find it more enjoyable setting the field before Sunday...

Fishers Medals Again

In the bustling Nickel Plate District of Fishers, Indiana, Tracy Gritters can recall a time when things looked very different. “It was a two-lane road 17 years ago,” she said of the property around her boutique store, Gallery 116 , where she has sold locally made goods since 2002. “We were worried about Target coming to town.” The retail giant eventually did — it's located about an 11-minute walk from her store — but the city's expansion hasn’t been the scenario she feared. Fishers, which was named MONEY's Best Place to Live in 2017 , officially upgraded from a town to a city and swore in its first mayor on January 1, 2015. Mayor Scott Faddness is still in office, and in the years since his inauguration, the city itself has been transformed. The newly developed downtown area became the Nickel Plate District , now home to an outdoor amphitheatre, plenty of retail stores and restaurants, a brewery, luxury apartments, and a high-speed internet coworking sp
