  1. You wanna know how special Schwarber is? Basketball season just around the corner and if you talk to 10 Hoosier fans this morning , all 10 will want to talk baseball.

  2. Crazy story. I also read where he already held the Cubs record for post season home runs from last season. I sure hope he can stay healthy and have a long career.

  3. Once a Hoosier leaves for the pros I routinely don’t follow their journey. Just don’t have the time to invest much interest. But Hoosier Kyle Schwarber hitting success since joining the Cubs makes him standout in the MLB. Coming back so quickly from a knee injury speaks to how thoroughly he works to attain success at his profession.

  4. A topic that should be front and center for tomorrows Hoosier Morning is a jury has awarded ex-PSU assistant Mike McQueary a large sum for defamation. I normally would not be positive about this as the majority of lawsuits filed are sleazy bluffs, feints and lies running our judicial system into the liquid manure pit. What I really hope happens in the not to distant future is some aggressive, forward thinking head coach somewhere hires this young man to let him restart his life. After all why shouldn’t this man be allowed to go back to work after the programs penalties were lessoned and sanctions were suspended early. Not to mention statues being dedicated. The bad guy will be in jail for a long time.

  5. He does seem to be one who should be given a chance to put this behind him.

    The courts get a lot of press for the outrageous story but there is a reason they exist. They are usually the last, and only, recourse for the crimes against the weak committed by the powerful…even if the powerful usually prevail.

  6. Chet, yes I should have added that as I concur as the courts for the most part do look at right and wrong only. I do wish so much of their time did not get ate up with the flavor of our modern times, BS lawsuits.
