A strong showing for No. 18 Indiana in its home opener. If coach Todd Yeagley had one complaint, it’s that IU never could find that putaway goal in the second half. Hoosiers return here to face Dayton at 2 p.m. Sunday afternoon. HOOSIERS 3, BILLIKENS 1
11:23: Indiana still looking for one more goal to put this game away, but hasn’t found it yet.
No scoring so far in this second half. St. Louis continues to get its best chances off throw-ins and restarts, while IU dominates possession. HOOSIERS 3, BILLIKENS 1
The opening period ends with a flurry of activity. With two minutes left, an Indiana corner kick skipped off a St. Louis defender for an own goal and a 3-0 lead. But the Billikens got the goal back with 55 seconds left in the half, poking home a loose ball in the IU box.
Justin Albers of the Indiana Daily Student is reporting that team sources have told him that redshirt sophomore Edward Wright-Baker will start at quarterback on Saturday.
This one has to be really short for a few reasons. My apologies.

Josh Hager and Andrew McDonald finally have a chance to play together on the offensive line, Andy Graham writes.
Fred Glass does not regret deciding not to spend significant marketing money on Saturday’s game, I wrote.
Gary Harris has set his official visit to Indiana, and it may alter the scheduling of Hoosier Hysteria.
The Hamilton Southeastern guard, who is one of the top 25 players in the Class of 2012, scheduled his visit for Oct. 15. Hoosier Hysteria — a whimsical basketball event at Assembly Hall that is Indiana’s version of Midnight Madness — is usually held on the day the NCAA recognizes as the first official day of basketball practice, which this year is Oct. 14. Harris, however, also plays football for Hamilton Southeastern, which means his fall Friday nights are taken up.
Several outlets reported Thursday that sources had indicated that the event would be held on Saturday. And Indiana spokesman said the Hoosiers were still “waiting to finalize the calendar.” Harris’s father, Gary Harris Sr., said there had been no discussion between Indiana and family about Hoosier Hysteria.
“I actually heard that a couple of times,” Harris Sr. said. “But quite frankly, I have no idea if it’s Friday or Saturday. It’s been brought up to me a couple of times, but we had nothing to do with any of that.” (more…)
Michael Weinreb, an extremely accomplished writer who in this case happened to be working for ESPN’s Grantland site, spent a day at practice following Kevin Wilson. It’s outstanding and pretty much captures exactly what I imagine goes on behind that particular curtain. The link is here.
With the release of Rivals’ first 2014 basketball rankings, one Indiana commit and three other targets made the site’s top 25.
Trey Lyles, who committed almost a year ago to the Hoosiers, comes in at No. 18.
Along with Lyles, Indiana targets Jacquan Lyle (No. 8), Cliff Alexander (No. 9), and D’Angelo Russell (No. 14) also made the opening list. Alexander and Russell were both on campus within the last week for unofficial visits.
Lyle and Alexander were classified as 5-stars, while Lyles and Russell both were at the 4-star level.
The nation’s top player in 2014, according to Rivals, is currently Andrew Wiggins, a forward out of Huntington Prep (W.V.).
