Hoosiers at Insight Bowl - Day 3
Dec. 29, 2007
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - After enjoying their second day in Arizona, Indiana's football players opened their third day in much the same way as the first - starting things with practice at 10 a.m. MST.
The Hoosiers spent their final day at Desert Mountain High School with temperatures creeping into the lower 60s under a bright sun and a clear blue sky. Following Saturday's practice, the Hoosier coaches put on a Youth Gridiron Day clinic for local youths. Afterward, the participants were able to get autographs from their favorite Hoosier players.
After the autograph session, the players and coaches returned to the Doubletree Paradise Valley Resort for free time. Many players were able to spend time with their families, while others gathered in the hospitality room to watch bowl games and play video games and pool.
Other Hoosier players returned to the social lobby of the hotel for the Inside IU Football with Bill Lynch Bowl Preview Show. Fans, players, family and friends all gathered to listen as host Don Fischer spoke with coach Lynch, director of athletics Rick Greenspan and several Hoosier players.
In the evening, players and coaches will gather with their families for the team dinner at the team hotel. In addition to the food, the evening will consist of fun activities, including a talent show put on by the Hoosier players. Some of the highlights included the comedy of MC Chris Phillips and an impression of coach Lynch by junior wide receiver James Bailey.
