Coach Hoeppner: 1947-2007


Very sad news out of Bloomington today, as Indiana Head Coach Terry Hoeppner lost his battle with brain cancer this morning. I have no connection to either the Indiana or Miami (Oh) programs at which Hoeppner coached, but like many other college football fans around the nation have long admired the man they called Coach Hep. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, as the college football community mourns the loss of one of its finest men.

Very sad.
Yet another "pillar of the humanity community" has passed on.
As Billy Joel sang "only the good die young".
It would be nice to see Indiana rise up and have a great year.
You always root for the Indianas and Northwesterns to have good years.
Good luck Hoosiers!
