Let me preface this by saying I’ve thought Lee Corso was an idiot ever since I heard what he did in 1981.

As head coach at Indiana, Ohio State scored the first touchdown of the game, but proceeded to miss the extra point, leading 6-0. As Corso’s Hoosiers trailed 6-0, they marched down the field and scored to take the lead 7-6. At this point, Corso calls a timeout and has his team assemble under the scoreboard, where he had a photographer take a picture of his team and the score. He wanted evidence that his team was once beating Ohio State.

Woody Hayes proceeded to run up the score on the Hoosiers, winning 47-7. Not so fast, my friend.

Fast-forward to 2013, where Lee Corso still has a job as a host for College Gameday.

Can we please get someone with some actual insight, and not just a circus clown for this upcoming season? Is that too much to ask?

Here are Lee’s best moments on ESPN that consist of expletives, making a fool out of himself, and giving Hoosiers everywhere a bad name. Here’s to you, Lee.

Sherry Dunbar does not claim Indiana University as her Alma Mater, but she is happy to call Bloomington her home even though she grew up down the road in Ellettsville.

Sherry graduated from Ball State University in 1992.  While studying in Muncie, IN, she was part of the Cardinals volleyball program.  She ended up breaking the middle blocking record during her last season.  From there she returned back to Ellettsville High School and became the Assistant coach under Wallenstein.  When Wallenstein was named the Head Coach at USF, he brought Sherry with him.  This is where her College Career all started.

From here, she served as an assistant under a few different coaches.  Sherry then moved on to be the Head Coach of the Lady Volunteers at University of Tennessee. After turning that program around, she moved on the South Carolina to coach at the College of Charleston.

Finally, Sherry ended up here at Indiana University in 2007.  She took this program from shambles to the amazing program it is today.  They receive bids to the NCAA tournament year after year.  Sherry doesn’t only require excellence on the court; she demands academic excellence as well.

Sherry just recently signed a contract with IU to make her the head coach until 2017.  Here is the full article from IU Newsroom.

Sherry also met up with the Volleyball broadcaster, Greg Murry, to talk about the IU volleyball program.  The video is below.

Dave Power Today

Posted: February 11, 2013 by kelseyray in Uncategorized

Inducted into the 2006 Hall of Fame, Dave Power won tennis letters in 1964, 1965 and 1966.  He won the Big Ten Doubles Championship in 1965 and was the runner up in singles.  He played on the 1964 Big Ten Championship Team, and was number one singles and doubles all three years at IU.

Power was ranked as high as No. 25 in singles in the United States, and in 1967 he paired with Will Coughlin to reach the semifinals in doubles at the Australian National Championships.

In 1966 he won the Balfour Awards.

So… What’s happening with Power today?

Power is currently the founder and owner of the Windward Tennis Academy, located in Alpharetta, Georgia.  You can check out more about it here:

Tennis revenues have grown tenfold and the Windward Tennis Academy has gained a national reputation.

What can you say, it’s always “ad in” for Power.  When it comes to tennis, his “love” means much more than just a score.

Catching up with Chandler

Posted: February 11, 2013 by kelseyray in Uncategorized

Roger Chandler, inducted into the 2008 Indiana University Hall of Fame, won wrestling letters in 1994, 1995, 1996 and 1997.  He was the IU-Male-Athlete of the year in 1997 as well as the Big Ten Champion that same year.  To say the least, ’97  was a major year for Chandler.  He also won the NCAA Championship.  Chandler set the IU record for both wins and pins.

So… where is he now?

Today, Chandler is in his 15th year as the Assistant Head Coach for wrestling at Michigan State University.

In addition to his work at Michigan State, Chandler also establishes the implementation of growing youth wrestling in the state of Michigan and throughout the United States.

Chandler finished his time at Indiana with a 134-25 record.  He graduated with a degree in sports management.
