I'm in college football heaven...I'm listening to the Hoosiers on the radio and there are a ton of games on cable that I'm watching at the same time. Georgia-Oklahoma State is on ESPN2 and Kansas State-Auburn is on ESPN. And Tennessee-Cal is now underway.
We're ready for kick-off. IU is kicking after ISU won the toss and took the ball. IU is wearing crimson jerseys and crimson pants.
Hep's widow and children appeared before the game as part of the tribute. According to the radio call, the scene was very emotional.
Here's the kick...it goes out of bounds. ISU takes the ball at the 35.
The first play for ISU is a gain of 6 on a four-wide-out formation. On second down, ISU false starts. The IU defense stopped them with no damage.
A phone call caused a delay, for which I apologize.
In the meantime, the Hoosiers took the ball back down the field, thanks in part to a pass interference penalty on a long pass intended for James Hardy. Marcus Thigpen ends up catching a TD pass from the Kellen Lewis. It's now 7-0.
