BLOOMINGTON, Indiana (AP) – Fred Glass, director of sports in Indiana, has qualified the profane singing at the center of Purdue, Matt Haarms, in Tuesday's "embarrassing" match.
Haarms first drew the wrath of the crowd when he locked the center of Indiana, "Ron Davis." After Haarms landed on the field, the referees blamed each player late in the first half.
The Hoosiers student section continued to boo Haarms throughout the game and to enter singing several times – something that Haarms acknowledged motivated him. Purdue's victory in 48-46 was decisive for Haarms.
Coach Boilermakers, Matt Painter, said that he had not heard the song, but that Glass had heard and that it was not happy. In a three-paragraph statement sent to students Wednesday, Glass thanked the students for being lively and applauding, but said it "poorly reflected the opinion of the students." University of Indiana and yourself ".
"Stop the profane songs and help those around you to do the same," he says. "You and the University of Indiana are better than that."
