THE BEST IN FREE AND INDEPENDENTLY OWNED IU COVERAGE

  • The Daily Hoosier takes a look at the return of IU Husky Marcelino Ball.
  • IUHoosiers announces that the men’s soccer program opens the season ranked No. 2.  You can see the full schedule here.
    • AlsoTodd Yeagley previews the upcoming season.
  • IU’s Andy Graham discusses that the writing appears to be on the wall for IU football — They are going to run the ball.
  • The NCAA announces several new rules including undrafted players returning to college, and players being allowed to hire agents.  Our take — while an overhaul, none of this really matters to the product on the court.  IU just needs to comply with the rules and go out and obtain the best talent possible.
  • IDS previews the upcoming Hoosier field hockey team.
