Hoosier Morning

Indiana wasn’t the only team to play poor defense last week in Ann Arbor, and any decision on Doug Mallory’s future should come after the season, Andy writes.

The IU baseball team built the 2014 schedule with RPI in mind, Dustin writes.

The Indiana women’s soccer team won at West Lafayette for the first time ever to claim the Golden Boot from Purdue, we reported.

2. IT’S INDIANA
There’s movement on the basketball recruiting front with Devin Robinson setting an Oct. 30 date for his decision and Max Hoetzel both earning an offer and making a visit this weekend, according to Inside the Hall.

Better leadership, better shooting are two keys for Yogi Ferrell this season, Pete DiPrimio of the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel writes.

Finding points, shooting 3s and playing freshmen are among the takeaways from IU women’s basketball media day, Max Grabovitch of IUSportCom writes.

3. POTPOURRI
The approval of former UCLA player Josh Smith’s waiver to be eligible immediately at Georgetown hints at a new thought process from the NCAA when it comes to abuse/mental health issues, John Infante of The Bylaw Blog writes.

4. ONE FOR THE ROAD
Since there’s movement on the recruiting front, let’s head into the weekend with The Who and “Eminence Front.”

  1. Re Potpourri..The NCAA has yet to demonstrate a ‘thought process’ in any way. So a ‘change’ is impossible.

  2. And..”better leadership and better shooting are two keys for Yogi this season” Think you credited the wrong writer for this one.

    Only Bob Kravitz of the Indy Star could come up with that simplistic and obvious goal for Yogi.

  3. It should be obvious by now that I have taken control of this website.

    My original request for $50000 was laughed at. I now require $1.98 to release my control.

  4. Ok Dustin, you can have the website back. I’ll even send you %5.oo. You need to remove the filter I installed that only allowed comments I agree with. Hence, no comments.

  5. Hello? HELLO (echo) (echo) (echo)

    I don’t want to play anymore. Can someone let me out?

    Please. HEllO (echo) (echo)

  6. How interesting. Minnesotta’s head coach, Jerry Kill was hired at the same time Kevin Wilson took over at IU. Kill also took over a program that had struggled in the Big Ten. Last week, Minnesota beat Northwestern, holding that powerful offense to just 17 points. This week, the Golden Gophers beat #24 ranked Nebraska, holding that explosive offense to just 23 points. Minnesota is now 6 – 2, have beaten two teams previously ranked in the top 25, and probably secured a bid to a bowl game after today’s win. Furthermore, they won today even with their head coach having taken a leave of absence for health reasons (Good luck, Jerry). And most interesting of all is that it looks like the Gophers have achieved this success as a result of a really good defense. Imagine that, creating a defense that is competitive in the Big Ten in less than three seasons! Incredible.

    But doesn’t it take a college football coaching staff a lot more time to develop its defense as compared to developing its offense? How is it possible that Minnesota’s coaching staff, which started the same time IU’s coaching staff did, has built such a good defense in less than three seasons? That is very interesting!
