Indiana AD Fred Glass on 'gratifying' win over Nebraska: They had no respect for our program
Indiana has a shot at an incredible season, and AD Fred Glass was extremely satisfied after the win over Nebraska.
The Hoosiers secured bowl eligibility with their sixth win of the season, a 38-31 outcome in Lincoln. However, with four games still to go this season, head coach Tom Allen and Indiana have a shot at the program’s best win total in over 25 years.
Indiana has not hit seven wins since 2007 and has not hit eight wins since 1993. The last bowl win came in 1991.
After Saturday’s win, Glass fired a shot at Nebraska for a lack of respect displayed towards the Hoosiers. Glass did not elaborate on that specific comment, but he admitted reaching six wins against the Cornhuskers was “gratifying.”
Zach Osterman with the Indy Star shared Glass’ comments:
“I’m very, very happy for our kids and very, very happy for our fans, because like Tom said tonight, we’re sick of talking about how close we’ve been, one to a signature win and two to qualify for a bowl,” Glass said, speaking shortly before flying back to Bloomington with IU’s traveling party. “To hit both of those things today at Nebraska was particularly gratifying, particularly knowing Nebraska’s staff had no respect for our program.”
Glass declined to elaborate on the implicated lack of respect, beyond saying, “They know, and I know, and our team knew, and I’ll just leave it at that.”
Glass’ comments are definitely interesting, but it currently remains a mystery as to what he meant in reference to Nebraska’s staff.
