“What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That's not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that's the burden of a year.”
“We are going to begin club teams in the fall. Men's basketball and women’s volleyball... the first two sports as [IUK] moves to NAIA....We [IU Kokomo] will... follow all regulations of the NAIA to make sure that.. we will be able to apply and be in a conference. Our hope is to do one year of club and the following year to join the conference. (Feb.17, 2011)”
“In that last game against the Rams [last season], we didn't show we were ready to compete with them. We realize there's a gap that needs to close. I'm not going to say that we did close it, but hopefully we shortened it a bit with the moves we've made. I think we're in a better position than we were last year.”
“The Rams] did a lot of gimmick things we'd never seen all season. They played a box-and-one. They stalled the ball on offense. They pulled out all the stops, and we didn't play with any sense of urgency or enthusiasm, I didn't think, until the second half. Then, I think we did a lot better job.”
