We will have to wait until the fall to see the shiny new fully enclosed Memorial Stadium due to forecasted inclement weather.  Meanwhile, the Indiana Football 2018 Cream and Crimson Game was played inside the Mellencamp Pavilion just around the corner, and the game was about as close to the real thing as Mellencamp is to Memorial. It is never easy to decipher much from a spring game, with split rosters, inactive players and special rules.  That was especially the case in today’s game, as the Cream and Crimson squads only played for two quarters, and the score of the…

As Hoosier fans, we know this feeling.  Just two years ago, one of our all-time favorites didn’t hear his name called at the NBA Draft.  But somehow you just knew that wasn’t the end of the NBA story for Yogi Ferrell.  Some athletes just have a tenacity about them that leads you believe they’ll always find a way.  And that is exactly what happened with the former IU point guard.  Ferrell just completed his second year with the Dallas Mavericks and averaged 27 minutes a game this season. Fast forward two years to today, and another Hoosier legend suffered a…

Did you hear that?  Followed by what felt like an audible sigh of relief, Romeo Langford let it be known that he would announce his college decision on April 30th (Monday) at 7:00 PM at the New Albany High School gymnasium.  The seemingly never ending decision between Indiana, Kansas and Vanderbilt will finally be announced. The news was first made public through Evan Daniels of 247 Sports. https://twitter.com/EvanDaniels/status/984141635360403456 Daniels’ tweet didn’t address the key piece of information in the minds of most people who have followed Langford’s recruitment closely — where would he announce, and would the announcement be open…

The battle for the starting quarterback role for the 2018 Indiana Hoosiers just got more interesting.  Former Arizona quarterback and graduate transfer Brandon Dawkins has announced that he will play his final season at Indiana. https://twitter.com/BDawks/status/983890226580869120 As a graduate transfer Dawkins will be eligible to play for the Hoosiers immediately.  That will set up an interesting competition for the starting role.  Freshman Michael Penix and sophomore Peyton Ramsey were thought to be battling for the top spot prior to Dawkins’ arrival. Dawkins had this to say about his decision to join the Hoosiers: “I didn’t see a better fit for…

As we highlighted last week, the class of 2019 recruiting process is in its busy season, and Archie Miller and his staff have been in full court press mode in an attempt to lock up a second consecutive highly ranked class. There are three Top 30 Class of 2019 forwards that Indiana is in a good position with — Keion Brooks, Jr., Trendon Watford, and Trayce Jackson-Davis.  Any of them would be a big recruiting win for the Hoosiers.  Archie Miller is going for the trifecta, and as we featured yesterday, he is doing it in part by highlighting the…

For a season that wasn’t up to Indiana University basketball standards, there were a few shining moments that Archie Miller’s first year at IU will be remembered for.  One will most certainly be the quit-the-game, to walk-on, to starter progression of Zach McRoberts.  Get that guy a scholarship. Another will be the in-season transformation into a team that learned how to play some defense.  The Hoosiers went from complete embarrassment against Indiana State and Fort Wayne, to some really impressive games where they were able to lock teams down.  No one embodied that change more than senior Robert Johnson. But perhaps…
