Glass happy cost of attendance discussion brought to table

There’s are a number of questions Fred Glass would want to ask before he’d be willing to get behind any proposal that would lead to student athletes being paid better than they already are.

For instance, where would the money come from? Who would be receiving additional funds? If the Big Ten were to make the decision to start giving extra, how would that affect the rest of Division I?

Still, the Indiana athletic director said, he’s just happy Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany started the discussion.

At the Big Ten spring meetings last week, Delany told reporters that there was some talk within the conference about giving student athletes a stipend that lessens the gap between what they get now and the total cost of attendance. A full scholarship covers tuition, room and board and books, but studies have shown that the average student athlete has to spend $2,000 to $5,000 beyond that for clothing, transportation and other basic living expenses.

“I think it makes sense to look at that and what the costs are and to try to anticipate whatever outcomes there are,” Glass said Monday. “I think it’s too early to say whether I or Indiana would be for or against it. But to me, starting with the full cost of attendance is an equity issue that may make a lot of sense.” (more…)

Former IU quarterback Schnell dies

This is already up on the website, but I figured I should post it here as well. Former IU quarterback Dave Schnell died of leukemia on Sunday. My story for tomorrow’s paper follows.

Dave Schnell stood in the shadow of the Horseshoe at his own 3-yard line with all the noise Ohio State fans could muster raining down upon him. But instead of panicking or calling timeout to get his focus back, the then-Indiana quarterback motioned to the crowd and raised his arms, daring them to get louder. (more…)

ESPN Reporting Ed DeChellis to Navy

Significant shake-up in the Big Ten today if this is true. ESPN is reporting that Penn State basketball coach Ed DeChellis is leaving State College to coach at Navy. Seriously.

Indiana freshman Victor Oladipo hit a game-winning 3-pointer with 2.2 seconds to go on Monday morning to give the Reach USA squad he and Jordan Hulls are touring with an 89-88 win over Lithuania Atletas in QiJiang, China.

Oladipo was 3-for-3 from the field with eight points and eight rebounds. Hulls was 0-for-3 and didn’t score, but had two assists.

IU lands first commitment

Dion Witty, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound cornerback from Coral Springs (Fla.) High School, committed to Indiana on Sunday according to a report. Witty had offers from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Central Florida and interest from Florida, Iowa State, Miami (Fla.), Michigan and Nebraska.

Witty is the Hoosiers’ first verbal commitment for the 2012 class. More to come tomorrow.

IU baseball’s season ends with loss to Illinois

For the second time in its three game series at Illinois, Indiana lost on a walk-off home run Saturday. The loss leaves the Hoosiers in seventh place in the Big Ten, which means they don’t qualify for the six-team tournament. The release from IU sports information follows.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill..- The Indiana University baseball team fell victim to another walk-off homerun at Illinois in the season finale, the second such loss of the series. Game three was a see-saw affair with many ups and down, finally coming to an end on the final Illini at-bat.

Indiana came up one run shy in the first two games (4-3, 13-12) before dropping the 7-5 decision on Saturday for a total run differential of just four runs. The Hoosiers conclude the 2011 season with a final record of 30-25.

Alex Dickerson put his name atop the record book, cranking the 47th homerun of his career in the second inning on Saturday. The homer not only tied the game up at 1-1, it also pulled him even with Mike Smith (1989-92) and Mike Sabo (1985-88) for most longballs in school history; doing so in only three seasons donning the Cream and Crimson.
