Indiana's best three football coaches ever are pretty obvious. Though it was ages ago (1934-1947), Bo McMillan gave Indiana its only outright Big Ten title in football, an undefeated season, and 10 winning seasons. Long ago or not, that's enough to be the best Hoosier football coach ever. The bar's not high, here.

Owner Jerry Jones voiced his support for Art Briles on Tuesday, saying he believes the former Baylor coach will be back in football soon and adding that he would want his grandson to play for him.

Does Jerry Jones have any credibility for anyone but other rich white men? Maybe that’s all that matters.
