Carlino eligible to play for Bloomington South

Matt Carlino has been declared eligible to play basketball for South this season.

The Indiana High Schools Athletics Association (IHSAA) told both South and the Carlino family of its decision Friday morning, ending a process that lasted throughout the summer.

“I thought it was a long, drawn-out process for a case that was black and white,” South coach J.R. Holmes said. “They moved and it was nothing athletically involved from our standpoint.”

Carlino, a junior, moved to Bloomington in late May from Gilbert, Ariz.

He’s a 2011 verbal commitment to Indiana and coach Tom Crean, but his family has said he is moving because the Carlinos have grown to love Bloomington.

“You know, the overriding factor on all this is literally how much Matt and myself and the rest of the family loves Bloomington,” Carlino’s father, Mark, said in May. “People in those parts might find that funny because they want to come to warm weather like we have. But every time we go there we are sad to go home. Pretty much the driving force behind all of this is our affection for Bloomington, Indiana.”

“Visionary thinking”

I wrote a story for tomorrow’s H-T about Akron’s new stadium, and what strikes me most about it from talking to those involved is that it sounds like the school has entered an entirely different universe in terms of football atmosphere. Coach J.D. Brookhart freely admits he didn’t even want recruits to see the Rubber Bowl on trips, but now he thinks it can totally change the Zips place in recruiting. The $61.6 million facility has about 30,000 seats, it’s located on campus unlike the old facility and it’s got tons of amenities the Rubber Bowl didn’t have, like club seating and video boards.

“I’d venture to say overall we have the best facilities in the whole league,” Brookhart said. “Hopefully it takes recruiting to a whole new level. Most of the kids we’ve recruited are over 3.0 students, so with the APR, we’ve positioned ourselves for the future should the landscape of college football change. That’s visionary thinking to me.”


IU announces game captains

According to an IU release, guard Pete Saxon, tight end Brian Zematis, wide receiver Terrance Turner and wide receiver/quarterback Mitchell Evans have been named game captains for Saturday’s 3:30 p.m. game at Akron.


IU “better” on Wednesday

Indiana football coach Bill Lynch said Wednesday that his team has adapted well to what it will see from Akron this weekend. A team needs look comfortable facing the scout team — which runs what the next opponent is expected to run — by Wednesday. He felt his team has. There will be challenges on both sides of the ball for Indiana, as Akron runs a fairly traditional spread and a 3-4 defense.

Other observations/notes from practice today:

  • Lynch said the team remains healthy. Donnell Jones, who earned the starting corner job across from Ray Fisher but sat the first two games due to injury, was back at full.
  • Speaking of Fisher, Lynch said the senior wide-receiver-turned-cornerback is a “natural” on the defensive side of the ball.
  • The Hoosiers will take a bus from Bloomington to Akron on Friday, but will fly home after the game Saturday night. Lynch said the program was “doing our part” during tough financial times.
  • Lynch isn’t overly concerned with how his team has played in the second half. The Hoosiers have been outscored 15-6 in the third and fourth quarters of two games this year, after being dominated during those spans last season. But after watching tape, Lynch said the breakdowns had to do more with the situations his team was in rather than some other overriding late-game deficiency.
  • One of his top concerns, he said, is scoring touchdowns in the red zone. The Hoosiers haven’t thrown for one yet, and execution is the culprit as far as Lynch is concerned.

Plenty of interesting takes out there tonight on Myles Brand, the man who fired Bob Knight and went on to implement several academic reforms as the head of the NCAA.

IU Student Tickets Top 6,000

From Indiana media relations.

FB STUDENT SEASON TICKETS TOP 6,000 MARK, $5 FRIEND PROGRAM CLARIFIED

Indiana University Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass, announced today that football season ticket sales among students have eclipsed the 6,000 mark for the first time since 2006.

“We are thrilled that over 6,000 students bought season football tickets this year,” said Glass.  “One of our primary goals was to enhance the gameday atmosphere for the students to encourage them to come to our games, but their commitment and support for our football program has exceeded our most optimistic expectations”.

Glass noted that single-game ticket sales have also been strong, with overall student attendance averaging over 8,200 through the first two games.  Glass believes that student attendance has been encouraged not only by the improved gameday atmosphere and winning play by the team, but also by the $5 gameday student tickets for IU and other college students.

The Department had made $5 gameday ticket sales also available to non-IU college students in an effort to increase attendance among IU students and students from other universities visiting friends who attend Indiana University.  While the department had initially indicated that the “$5 Friend Program” would be available without any limitations, Glass also announced today that the program would not apply to the students of the school Indiana is actually playing on gameday.

“We want to be hospitable,” Glass said, “but we don’t want to be patsies.  Our opponents are welcome, but we won’t be subsidizing their ticket costs.”

The lecture will be co-sponsored by the IU Auditorium and IU Athletics.
