Hoosiers QB ready to battle Wildcats | The Journal Gazette, Fort Wayne, Ind.
"'I thought Ben played a great football game. I thought being the co-offensive player of the week was a well-deserved honor,' IU coach Bill Lynch said. 'He had control of that football game. That’s what we’re looking for in Ben. He’s not going to beat you with his legs, and he knows it. But he’s a smart football player.'"

Duke Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski: Indiana University should 'celebrate' Bob Knight's legacy - ESPN
"Knight's good friend, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski -- a former player and fellow Naismith Hall of Fame member -- said it's not imperative that Knight attend the ceremony until the university does a bit more to recognize its former coach's achievements." Interesting. I wonder if this is a tip of Knight's hand. Probably not, and I'm not sure exactly what Coach K envisions. I think most IU fans celebrate what Knight accomplished, and the university and Knight were embroiled in litigation for years afterward.
