    No, it's going to be like the Hardcore title in old school WWF, where anybody could just start a match at any point on an unsuspecting champion. Since we hold the belt, we have to be alert at all times for when Indiana just pops up and says game on.

    Of all the weird games the team had last year the Indiana one might have been the weirdest. Got borderline outplayed. By Indiana. Very easily could have lost. To Indiana. Good thing Zeke had his Freeway Game. 55, 65, 75

    calibuck Too soon old, too late smart

    In the days of the settlers, log cabins and such, there were no windows. When someone knocked on the doors, the inhabitants asked 'who's there?' that got shortened to 'Hoosier' later in the century. Didn't make that up, but has been passed down from grand father to father to son in Ahia for many generations......Go Bucks! By the way, tOSU should be prepared for an almighty offense. The defense has picked up some, but the Buckeye D better be on their feet. Alternatively, it could be open season for tOSU DBs....

    Courtesy of the Indiana Historical Society:

    No one seems to know how the word “Hoosier” came to be. Some people think it was meant to mock Indiana as a rough, backwoods and backwards place. Others think that early settlers used the term with pride to describe themselves as a hearty, courageous group. One historian, Jacob Piatt Dunn, even suggested that the word “Hoosier” originally referred to boatmen who lived on the Indiana shore. We may never know for sure, but research and debate are likely to continue about this mysterious word.

    The following theories and stories about the origin of the word “Hoosier” are known to be false:

    • It comes from the word Hoosa, which means American Indian maize or corn.
    • Hoosier’s Men was a term used for Indiana employees of a canal contractor named Hoosier.
    • “Who’s ear?” – Writer James Whitcomb Riley joked that this question, supposedly posed by early Indiana settlers following tavern fights which had resulted in someone’s ear being cut off and left on the floor, eventually became the word “Hoosier."
    • “Who’s yer/here?” – This was supposedly the way early Indiana settlers would respond to a knock on their cabin doors. The story goes that it was eventually shortened to “Hoosier?”
    • “Who’s your [relative]?” – Again, legend has it that this question was eventually shortened to “Hoosier?”

    Best Indiana/Lee Corso story:

    Bloomington, IN Ohio St @ Indiana 1976

    In the 2nd qtr with 14:55 to go Lee Corso head coach of Indiana called time out.

    Here is the funny part, after taking a 7-6 lead over Ohio St he then had his team pose for a picture in front of the scoreboard. He then used the picture for a 1977 recruiting brochure. Ohio St won that game 47-7.

    So why would he do something like this? To figure out, we must hear the entire story. Here it is.

    The whole idea started in 1951 when Indiana beat Ohio St. Woody Hayes said "that football team will never beat me again - ever".

    Before the kickoff of the 1976 game Corso ask Woody how he was doing and Woody just growls at him. Corso's response "What the hell are you mad at me for? I was 10 years old when those guys beat you" Woody throws his hat and laughs at Corso.

    Ohio State gets a pick 6 and misses the extra point; and then Indiana drives down and scores to take the 7-6 lead. After the extra point Corso walks across the field and tells the official " we quit", official says "what", Corso "we quit. We ain't playing no more". The official says " You can't do that", Corso ask "Why?", the official says "your going to get beat", and Corso "We are going to get beat anyhow. I quit. We're not going to play anymore". The official says " You can't do that" so Corso says "OK, Time Out".

    Corso then had the team and the photographer hurry up run under the scoreboard and took a picture. The crowd mostly Ohio State fans are going crazy, Woody throws hit hat at Corso and is yelling. The ref says to Corso "what the hell are you doing"? Corso says "You know what mister it's been 25 years since Indiana has been ahead of that S.O.B. , and I want a picture to prove I'm ahead of him".

    After the game the photographer has the nerve to ask Corso " Lee do you want another picture?"

    Supposedly a true story:

    That SI article on Corso and Indiana is fascinating. I remember those days, but remember them differently because of what time does to distort things. Really enjoyable read.
