Last year's game was great. IU's victory was the culmination of an amazing tribute to Coach Hepner (who passed away from a brain tumor prior to the start of the season) and it resulted in the first trip to a bowl game since the early 1990's. Even the Boilermakers were happy for the Hoosiers. (For an excellent recap of the game, visit this blog.) But it's a new year. With both teams at 3-7 for the season (we'll see what happens after today's games), both sides will be hoping to possess the bucket as it will be the only thing to brag about this season.
Hope to see you on Saturday - go Hoosiers!
