"Rogers, offensive coordinator at Cornell last year, inherits a talented team. [Ross] Wiethoff, the team's leading passer and rusher last season, accounted for 18 touchdowns and more than 2,100 yards."

The newspaper lists senior quarterback Wiethoff, juniors Greg Sylvester (defensive back) and Eric Lewis (linebacker), and sophomore running back Jeremiah Marks as the Tigers' "players to watch." You can access the item at the Star's Web site. Another article in today's paper states, "Of Indiana's 20 college football programs, just six finished above .500 last year: DePauw, Hanover, Purdue, St. Francis, St. Joseph's and Wabash."DePauw Helmet
