IU’s 2012 NCAA men’s soccer champions honored at Assemby Hall ceremony


Here at Indiana’s Assembly Hall, where hanging banners remains a prime directive, IU’s national men’s soccer champions will be honored with a pep rally tonight in salute of their securing their program’s eighth NCAA title (and the school’s 25th overall). The seven previous NCAA soccer title trophies are on display, an impressive array of hardware,  in front of what is turning into a nice crowd. IU president Michael McRobbie, athletic director Fred Glass and Hoosier soccer coach Todd Yeagley are all expected to speak. We’ll have more details here later on The Scoop as the ceremony commences and after it concludes.

Bloomington’s own Caleb Konstanski, the former South standout and a senior co-captain for the Hoosiers, carried the eighth men’s soccer NCAA title trophy onto the McCracken Court when the team emerged. He said afterward it amounted to “so many dreams all coming true.”

Konstanki and co-captain Luis Soffner, the goalie voted the College Cup’s most outstanding defensive player, formally presented the trophy to IU Glass — the first of his tenure as AD — and McRobbie.

Very nice ceremony. Short and, for IU partisans, very sweet. Glass noted it marked the school’s 25th NCAA team championship and as a “random” comparison, pointed out that the Hoosier men’s soccer team now has five more national titles on its own than Purdue does in all sports.
