Sad Day-Coach Hep Dies

IU football coach Hoeppner dies

It's a sad day today as one of my favorite coaches in College Football, Coach Terry Hoeppner finally lost his battle with brain cancer.  I grew up in Indiana and I have as many good friends going to IU (including one WR on the team) as I do UT so I've been about as close to the program as a person in Texas could be.  My favorite memory of Coach Hep was when he called the IU Football program "a shooting rocket" (haha) after they beat Iowa last year.  I've always had a lot of respect for a coach willing to get out and fire up an apathetic student fan base.  I especially loved him unabashedly referring to a stadium with such pitiful attendance as "The Rock."
