Coach Todd Yeagley talks to reporters after practice about the beginning of the season and Friday’s match with New Mexico.


Webb, Hoosiers engaged for soccer opener

At the end of Indiana men’s soccer practice on Tuesday, senior goalkeeper Colin Webb was innocently stretching when he was suddenly baptized by a bucket of ice water.

Shocked, Webb jumped to his feet and jogged several feet away from his teammates, a gigantic grin finally crossing his face.

This, apparently, is the price you pay when you get engaged on the eve of the season opener.

“The ice bath was wonderful,” Webb said afterward. “When you don’t know it’s coming, it’s kind of a shock. I got engaged to my now fiance on Sunday, so that’s some good news and looking to head into a great season this year.”

Webb and fiance Carli Coughanowr will likely wait until next summer to get married, but the No. 15 Hoosiers only have to wait until Friday to kick off the 2016 season when they face New Mexico at 5 p.m. in the Mike Berticelli Memorial Tournament at South Bend. It’s the first time IU has started the season on the road since 2012 at St. Louis. The Hoosiers also started the 2011 season in South Bend against Notre Dame.
