Remembering Coach Hep
He taught us to "Defend The Rock," that 3-ton piece of Indiana limestone behind the north end zone. He created new traditions and instilled confidence, hope, and a new spirit that telegraphed itself throughout the university and to every corner of the state. He brought new excitement to Indiana football, and a renewed sense of pride and hope that went far beyond the game. The university community grieves the loss of Coach Terry Hoeppner, who leaves a legacy that is not only set in limestone, but also in our hearts. He passed away at Bloomington Hospital June 19, 2007, following a lengthy illness. Read more: http://www.iu.edu/coachhep/.
