All that was missing was a banana peel. Or Moe, Larry and Curly — nyuk nyuk — though this team could have used the laughs. Indiana’s season was like the spring training montage from “Major League,” but the film stopped there: there was no magical, inspired turnaround, just loss after loss after loss. Part of me was surprised that after finally scoring a touchdown against Wisconsin, Kevin Wilson didn’t imitate one of his predecessors, Lee Corso, and have the entire roster pose under the nearest scoreboard for a team photo. This was the worst B.C.S. conference team in the country, beating out strong contenders like Kansas, Mississippi, Maryland and Colorado for the crown, and this might have also been the worst team in program history. The latter designation says it all, if you’re familiar with the history of Indiana football.
