Revsine's Numbers: Stats weren't too pretty

Wow. Last week didn’t go so well. It was a not a pretty scene, as we sat, mouths agape, in the BTN green room and watched the Big Ten Conference suffer through a difficult Saturday. And that wasn’t just because Gerry DiNardo was drooling. Sorry, too easy. Not true. Though he did pull out his ubiquitous hankie a few times. Anyway, I know that when we launched back in 2007 there was a fear that we might be the TV equivalent of Pravda circulating only the positive spin on the news out of the Kremlin. I hope we’ve shown over

Dienhart: Q&A with Indiana's Greg Heban

Defense rarely has been a strength at Indiana in the last 20 years. But Indiana defensive back Greg Heban is trying to change that. The Hoosiers are off to a 2-0 start, brimming with confidence and in search of their first bowl since 2007 and just second postseason game since 1993. The program hasn’t won a bowl since downing Baylor in 1991 in the now-defunct Cooper Bowl.
