Goalkeeper Colin Webb and Defender Grant Lillard address the media during availability on August 23, 2016.
The last of Indiana’s 2016 recruits arrived on Sunday. Classes on the Bloomington campus began Monday.
By Tuesday, it was time to peek at an updated basketball roster.
As Alex Bozich of Inside The Hall points out, IU’s sophomores made some serious gains in the weight room during the off-season. Juwan Morgan has gone from 205 pounds to 230 pounds, O.G. Anunoby went from 215 pounds to 235, Thomas Bryant gained 10 pounds and is now listed at 255.
Follow along after the jump to take a quick look at the full roster, jersey numbers included. (more…)
Size and skill are only part of the equation that makes Richard Lagow the frontrunner to win Indiana’s open starting quarterback job.
His ongoing development from spring practice to the edge of the season’s start is another encouraging sign in his favor.
Although coach Kevin Wilson has not officially named Lagow Indiana’s top quarterback — and he isn’t likely to update the competition until Friday, at the earliest — all signs point to the junior college transfer as Indiana’s guy behind center first on Sept. 1 at Florida International.
Last week, Wilson said Lagow was receiving the bulk of the work at quarterback, and from his view, offensive coordinator Kevin Johns says he’s been encouraged with Lagow’s performance this month.
The next step in the developmental process for the 6-foot-6, 240-pound Texan is getting him the on-field experience that he needs.
“He’s playing with more confidence,” Johns said. “There are always things to work on, and I think for him it’s just going to be some game experience. I think he’s gonna learn just a ton in this first game, and he’s gonna take that and continue to grow from week to week this season.” (more…)

3. ONE FOR THE ROAD
Hoosier Morning is back, school is back and Steve Winwood is “Back in the High Life Again.”
Dan Feeney is beginning his senior year exactly how he left off as a junior.
With an ESPN All-American selection.
Feeney earned the preseason nod from the network on Monday, adding to his list of recent honors. The Indiana right guard was also named a preseason All-American by Athlon Sports, while the Football Writers Association of American included Feeney on its watch list for the Outland Trophy, which goes to the nation’s top interior lineman.
“An ESPN.com first team All-American in 2015, Feeney has allowed only one sack in his career and has helped pave the way for a 2,000-yard rusher in 2014 (Tevin Coleman) and one of the nation’s top all-around offenses in 2015,” ESPN’s Brian Bennett wrote.
Feeney is one of six players from the Big Ten to make ESPN’s list, joining Michigan tight end Jake Butt, Ohio State center Pat Elflein, Buckeyes linebacker Raekwon McMillan, Michigan State defensive tackle Malik McDowell and Iowa corner Desmond King.

We sat down with Teri Moren for an interview about Indiana’s offseason. There will be a feature in Monday’s paper about some of the Hoosiers’ new pieces, including freshmen Ria Gulley, Bre Wickware and Darby Foresman.
But, in the meantime, we have also learned more details about IU’s non-conference schedule.
IU will round out its non-conference slate with trips to North Texas and Chattanooga, match ups with Florida and Stony Brook in the Florida Sunshine Classic and a visit from Oakland.
In April, it was revealed that IU would play Auburn, Vanderbilt, Western Kentucky, Southeastern Missouri and Presbyterian. The Hoosiers will also play N.C. State in the Big-Ten ACC Challenge.
Chattanooga, Auburn and Florida made the NCAA tournament in 2015-16. Western Kentucky played in the WNIT. That provides the Hoosiers with formidable competition before entering Big Ten play, a formula Moren believes helped IU’s resume when they were on the NCAA bubble in ’15-16.
The trip to North Texas is significant because it allows Gulley and Wickware, along with sophomore Danielle Williams, a chance to return to their home state.
