Indiana's assistant media relations director ,
Gavin Lang, was going nuts trying to get Indi-
ana safety Joe Gonzales on the phone. It was a
few days before July's Big Ten Kickoff Lun-
cheon, and Gonzales - one of two Hoosiers
to make the trip - was nowhere to be found.
Turns out the victim of a 2002 season-end-
ing hernia injury was in Spain visiting his
brother, doing just a little more special rehab
before the season began. Well, after 17 phone
calls, 12 from Long, Gonzales was reached
and shipped directly to Chicago for the
luncheon.
And he had a story to tell.
"I went to Madrid, Barcelona - saw the
Olympic Village, and went to Pamplona for
the running of the bulls, which was probably
the craziest event that I've ever seen in my
life," Gonzales said.

The trip was also a way for Gonzales to fin-
ish his recovery, physically and mentally, after
missing the final eight games last season. He
got to spend his time either training at the 'Y'
near his brother's home, or just getting psy-
ched watching the bulls run down the roads of
Pamplona like offensive linemen chugging
toward him during plays.
But as excited as it made him, did he run?
"I thought about what (Indiana coach Gerry
DiNardo) would do to me, and it was out of my
mind," Gonzales said. "They ran the biggest
bulls (the last day), and these bulls were like
two meters high at the shoulder. They just ran
down the road and trampled people. It was the
most bizarre experience in my life."
Now Gonzales is back on the field tram-
pling opponents, but he had to wait for that as
well. Injured in a practice before Indiana's
season opener, he returned to the playing field
last week against Kentucky, recording four
tackles (three solo).

For DiNardo, the return of his captain is
much needed for his 1-3 Hoosiers. While Indi-
ana's expectations are not high this year,
DiNardo is leaning on players like Gonzales to
help prepare the younger classes for next year
and beyond.
"You look at the Big Ten in the last five
years, and Illinois has been a champion and
Iowa and Northwestern, so it's our turn to do
it," Gonzales said. "I have no doubt that
Coach DiNardo is going to do it. I just hope
it's this year. People say that Indiana is a bas-
ketball state, which is fine. But Florida bas-
ketball is just as amazing as football now."
Even if it doesn't happen this year for Gon-
zales, his roommate, quarterback Matt LoVec-
chio (a junior transfer from Notre Dame), may
help lead the Hoosiers to respectability by
next season.
"The first time I really got a lot of respect
for Matt was when we were watching the Wis-
consin game from the stands," Gonzales said.

Before every football game this season, two of the Daily football writers will take
the weekend's matchup to the PlayStation 2.
For this week's matchup, coach Kyle O'Neill led the Wolverines and J. Brady
McCollough took the helm for the Hoosiers.
Play of the game - Not that Indiana had anything going for it, but the Hoosiers
took a big blow when Coach McCollough decided to up and leave the game
Marty Mornhinweg-style on his motorcycle after Michigan CB No. 21 returned
an interception 92 yards to give Michigan a 35-0 lead, 1:46 into the second
quarter.
Player of the game - Though he found a way to drop the ball five times, Michi-
gan WR No. 15 was a double threat with four receptions for 27 yards and nine
rushing attempts for 85 yards. Because coach O'Neill forgot he was in the
game at tailback, WR No. 15 got the chance to get a 47-yard score.

Michigan linebacker Pierre Woods
walked into coach Lloyd Carr's office
Sunday night following Saturday's loss
at Oregon. The junior sat down and
apologized to Carr for his performance
in Eugene, Ore.
"He came into my office and apolo-
gized for not playing the way he's capa-
ble of," Carr said. "He hated the way he
played and promised to play his heart
out from this point on. It takes an unbe-
lievable person to say that."
It wasn't exactly your typical
player/coach meeting, but it was all that
mattered at the time - moving on and
trying to do anything possible to find
closure after a heartbreaking loss.
Woods wasn't the only Michigan
player feeling apologetic after the loss.
Every Michigan player, young or old,
had that same empty feeling at the pit of
their stomach as they made the long trip
home. It's a feeling that probably won't
go away until Michigan takes the field
tomorrow afternoon.
But in football, as in life, the show
must go on - and Michigan knows it.
The Wolverines spent Sunday after-
noon watching game film and trying to
identify correctable mistakes. The
memory of Saturday's loss was still
fresh in everyone's minds.
"We looked at the film, and now we

have to forget about it and move on,'
John Navarre said. "It is a tough road
but we have been in this situatior
before. We have to pick ourselves ur
and go on and play a very good bal
club. If we don't, the season is going to
go downhill, and we are not going to le
that happen here."
While the ultimate goal of reaching
the national-championship game will be
harder to realize with one loss, it's no
impossible. But the Wolverines have
other goals that they still have full con-
trol over. Right now, the main goal is tc
come off a tough loss with a strong star
in the conference season against Indiana.
"Now we are worried about the Big
Ten championship," senior David Baas
said. "That is what we can control an
that is what we are going to do."
But what is the team doing to leave
the memory of the loss in Eugene?
How easy is it to move on after coming

Indiana coach J. Brady McCollough: Four words: Playstation 2 next week.
Indiana quarterback coach Jim Weber: You never know when your opportunity
will come. Still I was a little surprised when Coach McCollough was fired in
the middle of CAB No. 21's return to make it 35-0. You know how people in my
position say it's unfortunate the way they got their opportunity? The hell with
that. I was waving CB No. 21 down the sideline the whole way.
I'd like to point out that I was only outscored 14-7 once I took over the helm.
There might not be moral victories at Michigan, but there sure as hell are at
Indiana. s far as I'm concerned, I'm undefeated as a head coach.
(long pause) No, it doesn't take anything away from my kids that during one of
my ong drives, Coach O'Neill was eating a bread stick ... Next question.
It's a new era of Indiana football. First off, QB No. 10 will never see the light of
day again. All I have to say is that if you can't earn time playing quarterback at
Notre Dame, you shouldn t start anywhere ... Wait, we don't play the Irish this
year do we? OK, good. Screw 'em, we're the best team in Indiana ... What? Pur-
due is in Indiana, too? Shit, don't print that.
Michigan coach Kyle O'Neill: Well, I coached Indiana all week in practice, so I was
surprised when Coach McCollough showed up ready to coach them. Something
about being sick of slow-footed QB No.16.1 don't know, questions?
Yes, Indiana quarterback coach Jim Weber caught me off guard. And no, I was not
eating food while he was in the red zone out of disrespect for him ... I was hungry.
And no, running a goalline defense from 28 yards out in the third quarter was not
my greatest move by any means.
Just happy to be above .500. I only wish I could have accomplished this feat with
the Hoosiers. And no, I liked "Rocky" better than that Gene Hackman movie.
Ummm ... I'd rather not, but okay. Ahem. I never meant to be so bad to you; One thing
I said that I would never do- A look from you, and I would fall from grace; And that
would wipe the smile right from my face; Do you remember when we used to dance;
And incidents arose from circumstance; One thing lead to another we were young;
And we would scream together son s unsung; It was the heat of the moment; Telling
me what my heart meant; the heat 01 the moment showed in your eyes.
