    I didn't see this posted anywhere else, but Indiana football coach Terry Hoeppner died today, according to the AP.

    Really a sad story. He fought the good fight and did everything he could do to live as well as he could during the past couple of years.

    RIP.

I'll be rooting for the Hoosiers this year.

    RIP. Don't know the man, but this does hit close to home. My HS football coach was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Had an operation and a second one was discovered. By all accounts, he was a stand-up guy.
