Summary "The beginning of a new era in Indiana University football starts with the arrival of head coach Tom Allen. After revolutionizing IU's defense, Allen has the opportunity to stage a Hoosier comeback. But can Allen make the most of this opportunity? Who are the compelling figures poised to make it happen? In Stories from the Sidelines : A New Era for Indiana University Football, veteran sports writer Pete DiPrimio showcases exclusive coverage of the meetings, practices, games, players, coaches, and gatherings that the public rarely sees. He also reveals the surprising story of how Allen, the son of a successful Indiana high school coach, became the head coach after delivering a quality defense--something no Hoosier defensive coordinator has done in a generation. An in-depth look at the rookie season under Allen, Stories from the Sidelines brings readers into the locker room during the rebirth of Hoosier football and highlights the struggles and successes as the coaches and players fight to rebuild the program and reinvent IU football"-- Provided by publisher
