Halftime...IU is looking good

Stats are being updated and available here even though it says IU is winning 25-7. Kellen Lewis is having a monster game, and he still has 30 minutes to go. He's 10 for 17 for 243 yards, 3 TDs and an interception. Two of those touchdowns came on one-play wonders to James Hardy. He has 3 catches for 153 yards.

I really liked how the Hoosier defense tightened following the first couple Indiana State drives. They figured out the no-huddle and now are looking for the quick shovel passes out of the spread formation. The last offensive drive wasn't all that stellar, but that may have been because they were in hurry-up mode. Either way, they still scored 31 points in the first half.

The rushing game has to get on track. Lewis is the only player with more than 6 yards rushing (he has 23), but I suspect that has to do with the quick strikes to Hardy. If the game gets out of hand, I think they need to work on that.

ESPN just gave notice...the Red Sox have a no-hitter going into the 9th inning. Clay Buchholtz throws a nasty curve for strike three to get the last out. He's the first Red Sox rookie to throw a no-hitter.

Kansas State also is up 10-6 on Auburn about half way through the third quarter. Purdue is up 38-14 now in the fourth quarter.
