Congratulations to all these student athletes! Juggling the demands of D1 athletics with academics is a daunting feat and these young men deserve great credit for doing so succesfully.

Wow, that’s really impressive. Congratulations to these players, their parents, the IU coaching staffs (current and previous) and the academic advisors on a great achievement. Well, no one can say that Wilson does not emphasize academic achievement. This makes me proud to be a Hoosier in spite of their win-loss record this year.

Unless you have played a varsity sport in college, or have a son or daughter that has, you can not appreciate the demands on their time and how much more difficult it is to get good grades. These young people work their butts off both on and off the field.
