Hoosier Headlines for October 27, 2009:Jibreel Black ditches Indiana and other fun football news.

  • Hoosiers let it get away, 25-point IU lead vanishes (The Journal Gazette, Fort Wayne, Ind.)
  • NU's record comeback defeats Indiana (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES)
    "The Wildcats got it done in large part because of the two faces of ''I'' that Indiana brought to Evanston. For the opening 22 minutes, the Hoosiers were a crimson-and-cream juggernaut. That roll began when Darius Willis took a handoff on the first play from scrimmage, tested the left side of NU's defense and found nothing but fresh lakefront air and purple panters en route to a 70-yard touchdown."


  • Northwestern scores 26 unanswered points against the Hoosiers (Indiana Daily Student)
    The Hoosiers’ 29-28 loss to Northwestern on Saturday can be summed up in one word: collapse.


  • Come-from-behind Cats revitalize bowl hopes (The Daily Northwestern)
  • Big Ten power rankings: Week 9 (ESPN)
    "10. Indiana (4-4, 1-3): The Hoosiers' resolve will be tested after blowing a 28-3 lead against Northwestern. Head coach Bill Lynch made several questionable decisions down the stretch, and Indiana's offense couldn't convert three second-half interceptions into any points. Indiana will need to pull off an upset against Iowa, Wisconsin or Penn State to have any chance at a bowl. "


  • IU sliding out of contention (The News-Sentinel - Fort Wayne IN)
    "At 4-4 with losses in four of the last five games, with the only win in that stretch Illinois, Indiana seems ill-equipped to handle winning at least two of those games to become bowl eligible and three to clinch a bid."

  • Big Ten thumbs up, thumbs down for Week 8 (ESPN)
    "Thumbs down, Bill Lynch: The Indiana coach didn't help his team during a second-half collapse with two questionable fourth-down calls. Rather than taking three points to increase Indiana's lead to 32-19, Lynch went for a fourth-and-goal and the Hoosiers couldn't get in. Northwestern responded with a 98-yard touchdown drive. Later in the game, Indiana could have pinned NU deep but went for a fourth-and-3 from the Wildcats' 33-yard line and failed. "


  • DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK (Sippin' On Purple)
    "Northwestern's strategy of going down 20-30 points to start every game appears to be working. I'll take it."

    "A proven winner who averaged 20 victories a season during his nine years at Marquette, Crean knew it would be a rough ride during his first year at Indiana, a program sent spinning from the dialing indiscretions of former coach Kelvin Sampson. But Crean didn't know how rocky a road it would be until after Indiana's first two games in the 2008 EA Sports Maui Invitational."
