There has been quite a stir around the Chicago suburb of Evanston on whether Bill Carmody should keep his job at Northwestern despite not making the NCAA tournament for yet, another year.

After all, he has led the Wildcats in the past three seasons to records of 17-14, 20-14 and 20-14 and three straight trips to the NIT.

School administration seems to be happy with his job performance, because he is returning for his 13th season as head men’s basketball coach.

Carmody, a Pete Carril disciple, has a 179-191 record with the Wildcats and have brought national attention to the program with upset wins and the team’s competitive nature of playing better teams very tough with close games.

MEINEKE CAR CARE BOWL: Texas A&M (6-6) vs. Northwestern (6-6)

The Meineke Car Care Bowl in Houston on December 31 pits two teams with 6-6 records, Texas A&M and Northwestern.

The Aggies have fired head coach Mike Sherman due to the team falling shy of high expectations.

Tim DeRuyter, the team’s defensive coordinator, has been given the ship to run until after the game on New Year’s Eve. The Aggies lost four of five games to end the season.

Northwestern had a bad streak of their own in the middle of the season, losing to Army, Illinois, Michigan, Iowa and Penn State before winning four of the last five games to get bowl eligible.

The Wildcats are in the postseason for a program-record fourth season in a row. The fifth-year seniors on the team have 36 wins in their careers, the best ever for a five year group at the Chicago area school. But it has been since January 1, 1949, that Northwestern has ended the season with a bowl win. They won the Rose Bowl that year.

The Wildcats are led by QB Dan Persa, who completed 74.2% of his passes in their ball-control, horizontal passing offense.

Texas A&M’s QB is Ryan Tanneyhill who was 12th in the nation in passing and he threw 28 touchdown passes to talented receivers Ryan Swope and Jeff Fuller.

Three, 100-yard rushers lead Buckeyes past pesky Indiana


Braxton Miller rushed for 105 yards

When the Ohio State Buckeyes schedule moved to the next opponent, Indiana, everybody from the fans and media felt that the offense was going to rout the struggling and young Hoosiers.

But what we witnessed in Saturday’s game was the complete opposite, a close, game which could’ve been an embarrassing loss.

The Buckeyes however, pulled together late in the game to win 34-20.

A crowd of 105,195 at Ohio Stadium, saw the home team go down 10-0 early, but lead by three, 100-yard rushers, the Buckeyes rolled up 401 yards of total offense.

The game wasn’t decided until Travis Howard intercepted a Tre Roberson pass with 4:07 to go and OSU leading 27-20. That pick led to the Buckeyes scoring a game-clinching TD by running back Carlos Hyde of  2 yards with 2:41 to go to make the score 34-20.

Carlos Hyde came off the bench to rush for 105 yards

Ohio State’s ground attack was too much for Indiana. Daniel Herron rushed for 141 yards on 14 carries, Carlos Hyde bulled his way to 105 yards on 15 lugs and QB Braxton Miller dashed and slashed his way to 105 yards on 14 rushes. The Buckyes rushed for 346 yards on 46 carries. The last time the Buckeyes had three, 100-yard rushers was in 1989 vs. Northwestern with Scottie Graham, Carlos Snow and Dante Lee pulling the trick.

Daniel Herron led the way on the ground with 141 yards

The win improves the Buckeyes to third straight win. They are 6-3 overall and 3-2 in the Big Ten Leaders Division.

The Hoosiers, dropped their seventh game in a row and are 1-9 overall and 0-6 in the Leaders Division.

Indiana, which rolled up 333 yards on offense, was led by freshman QB Tre Roberson who was 11 of 21 passing for 174 yards and 1 touchdown. The talented signal-caller also rushed for 70 yards. Wide receiver Kofi Hughes also had a big game for the Hoosiers with 147 yards on eight receptions and a touchdown.



Miller probably had the most exciting play of the game in the first quarter. With OSU trailing 10-0, the Buckeyes after an illegal procedure penalty and facing a 2-12-from their own 19, Miller went back to pass and dodged the Indiana rush, ran outside and down the middle of the field and into the clear, he appeared to almost trip at the Indiana 20 but got into the end zone for a touchdown. The 81-yard touchdown was the longest by an Ohio State quarterback and fifth-longest in school history.

INDIANA AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Hoosiers led by offensive-minded Kevin Wilson

Kevin Wilson is the new head coach at Indiana.

His name probably sounds familiar because he was the long-time offensive coordinator at Oklahoma.

From 2002-2010, Wilson served as offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator for the Sooners. He also coach the fullbacks and tight ends. Under his guidance, Oklahoma played in seven Big 12 Title games in his nine years, going 6-1. His offensive machines were vital to accumulating an overall record of 99-24 (.805) during his time in Norman, Oklahoma, including seven 10-win seasons.

One of the most prolific and innovative offensive minds in college football, Wilson was named Indiana University’s 28th head football coach on December 7, 2010.

Wilson has also coached at North Carolina, Winston Salem State, North Carolina A & T, Foard High School in North Carolina, Miami of Ohio and Northwestern.


INDIANA AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Freshman QB Roberson leads IU offense

Eventhough Indiana has struggled as a team this year, their offense has had its moments.

The Hoosiers have scored 20 points vs. Ball State, 31 vs. Virginia, 38 vs. South Carolina State, 21 vs. North Texas, 20 vs. Illinois, 24 against Iowa and 38 against Northwestern.

Leading the way is true freshman quarterback Tre Roberson who threw for 169 yards against Northwestern last week with a touchdown. He also ran for a TD while gaining a career-high 121 yards on the ground.

Roberson is the first true freshman to ever start at QB for IU and the 12th nationally in 2011. He celebrated his 19th birthday by becoming the third Hoosier to earn Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors in 2011.

Roberson is very dangerous throwing an running ala OSU’s Braxton Miller.

He did earn Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors two weeks ago at Iowa.

In Big Ten play, Roberson is seventh in total offense (196.0 per game) and eighth in rushing (65.0). Michigan’s Denard Robinson is the lone quarterback with a higher per game rushing average (68.2).

Roberson earned the state of Indiana’s 2010 Mr. Football Award at Lawrence Central High School in Indianapolis. He passed for 2,611 yards, 24 touchdowns and four interceptions and rushed for 1,992 yards and 22 TD’s.

He comes from an athletic background as his grandfather, Larry Highbaugh, played defensive back and ran track at Indiana from 1968-71. Highbaugh played briefly with the Dallas Cowboys, then spent 13 years in the Canadian Football League and was inducted into that league’s Hall of Fame in 2004.



IU’s offense ranks 75th in the nation with 378 total yards per game and it ranks 89th nationally with 22 points per game.
