Signing day audio

Coach Terry Hoeppner’s signing day get-together with the media lasted about an hour yesterday. Then we were told it would be an NCAA violation for us to stick around and watch the videotape of the new recruits as it was being shown to members of the Varsity Club and season ticket holders.

Hoeppner jokingly said that IU acting media relations director Jeff Keag would toss us out if we tried to linger because the IU compliance office had determined members of the media couldn’t be there.

I certainly didn’t mind leaving, although I would have liked to have seen the videotape of the recruits. But what I think is outrageous is the NCAA having so many rules that seemingly nobody fully understands them.

Besides Hoeppner telling us we all have to leave at the end, you can also hear the Hoosier coach in another light moment ask me about why we haven’t reported that he has renewed his subscription to the H-T after cancelling it last season.
