  1. Aruss,
    Pushed the Live Chat back to tomorrow so as to cover the IU baseball open practice and press conference. I probably should have put something up for that. Your burning questions must wait 24 hours. Of course, my answers are likely useless, as my sources are not as good as yours. (Had to get a jab in. Sorry.)
