  1. Although it has not been against the toughest of competition it’s great to see that things are starting to look up for this program.
    I’ve been a lifelong Indiana University fan living in the southern part of the state.It has been tough having to listen to all of the

  2. Great to see The National make the cut.

    Fantastic band, fantastic live band. I saw them in Indy in October. One of my favorite shows ever.

    And you went with a brand new B-side. Nice. I already found the studio version, thanks to your tip-off.

    And here I thought I just came here for IU news.
