Dienhart: My 4 biggest assistant coach hires in East Division

IU finished 6-7, but two of its losses came in OT: to Michigan in double OT and vs. Duke in the Pinstripe Bowl. So, Kevin Wilson’s crew knows it can hang with most any team. Now, it’s time to take the next step and earn some signature wins in addition to another postseason trip, as IU hasn’t won a bowl since dumping Baylor in the 1991 Copper Bowl. Here
