Next, a few articles about the memorial service held for IU football head coach Terry Hoeppner last Saturday afternoon. His wife wanted it on Saturday afternoon because that was game time. The first is about the state trooper that's in charge of the IU head football coach's security, and how much Coach Hep meant to him as a friend too:
