Happy Birthday Kellen! And Fuck Off Big Ten Network!

Today is Kellen Lewis' 21st Birthday. We'd like to give him a hearty Defend The Rock Happy Birthday! Go out, have a beer (I'm sure you're excited and intrigued to try alcohol for the first time as certainly IU's and Bloomington's no-drinking for minors policies are 100% effective), have some fun, and then get prepping for next year!


In other news:

The latest comment spam from the Big 10 Network on here (see the post below this one) really pissed me off. I find it hard to support EITHER or Comcast or The Big Ten Network in their ongoing feud, but shit like this makes an already bad image worse (and let's not forget the "Big Ten Network Spinners" that "performed" at the IU @ Northwestern game last year, ugh, thought I have erased that from my memory).

One of these days I'll put up a longer post on this topic but currently I am burdened with too many other obligations to successfully channel my fury.

NFL Hoosiers

Well with the college football season over, and the NFL season winding down, I wanted to give a shout out to all of those Hoosiers that played (or DNP) this season in the National Football League.

Let's start with the NFC Hoosiers:

Adewale Oguleye - DE for the Chicago Bears ended the season with 58 tackles, 9 sacks and 6 forced fumbles.

Victor Adeyanju - This second year Rams Defensive End had 29 tackles this season.

Antwaan Randle El - Antwaan had 51 receptions this season (his second for the Redskins) and 728 yards with 1 touchdown. He had an impressive game against the Seahawks in the NFC Wildcard game, bringing in 10 catches for 94 yards and a touchdown as the Redskins fell short of Seattle 14-35.

Now on to the AFC Hoosiers:

Gibran Hamdan - Buffalo Bills QB - DNP

Isaac Sowells - Cleveland Browns G - DNP

Courtney Roby - Cincinnati Bengals WR - DNP

Herana-Daze Jones - Cincinnati Bengals DB played in 9 games this season and had 18 tackles, 15 of which were solo tackles. He is now on injured reserve for the Bengals.

Chris Taylor - Houston Texans RB - IR DNP

Trent Green - Miami Dolphins QB - In his first year with the Dolphins threw 5 tds and threw for 987 yards. He also threw 7 interceptions and was put on IR in October.

Aaron Halterman - Miami Dolphins TE - This season he saw action in 9 games, but only caught 1 pass for 7 yards.

Chris Liwienski - Miami Dolphins G - In his 9th season, and first for the Dolphins, Chris played in 16 games, 14 of those he started.

Kris Dielman - San Diego Chargers G - Kris Dielman started every game this season and helped the Bolts beat Tennessee and Indianapolis and taking them to the AFC Championship game were they lost to the New England Patriots.

So that was my very pointless recap of the NFL season and the Hoosiers that helped make it possible. If I left anyone off, or you can report about any other news involving former IU Football players and what they are up to now, that would be great. Has Lance Bennett helped Will Smith out with any hot singles lately? Let us know!

Although I am sad to see James Hardy leaving IU for the NFL, I am also extremely excited to have at least one more Hoosier to cheer for during the season. I am also looking forward to seeing what happens with Tracy Porter, I would love to see him work pretty hard this off season and get picked up somewhere for next season. I am looking for a team to follow, and it may be whichever team takes a chance on Tracy Porter.
