Maui Invitational = $8.3 million economic impact

By   |   Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2009 - 11:02 AM   |   1 comment

I can assure you that IDS reporter Matt Dollinger only contributed about half a million to this total, with his lavish tastes in fine foods and insistence on playing only the most glamorous golf courses and habit of ending each day with an hour-long massage from the hula girls.

Here’s the release.

MAUI, Hawaii, Feb. 3, 2009 – The 2008 EA SPORTSTM Maui Invitational® Hosted by Chaminade University surpassed the previous year’s numbers for impact on the local economy, again ranking among Hawaii’s top revenue-generating events of 2008. According to the latest data released by the Maui Visitors Bureau, the Tournament welcomed nearly 5,000 out-of-state participants spending an average of six days on Maui and making an economic impact of more than $8.3 million. 2008 marked the 25th year for the EA SPORTS Maui Invitational and included several special events to commemorate the milestone leading up to and during the Tournament.

No late shenanigans out of the football players who verbally committed to IU this year. All 18 have signed. Here’s a release from Jeff Keag at IU media realations:

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Eighteen student-athletes will continue their football playing careers at Indiana University, head coach Bill Lynch announced on Wednesday. Lynch’s second recruiting class includes one four-star recruit and 12 three-star recruits in the and rankings.

Eight players in the class reside from Indiana, five from Ohio, two each from Illinois and Michigan and one from Pennsylvania. The Hoosiers bolstered their depth on the offensive line, signing a quartet of linemen. Indiana added two quarterbacks, two wide receivers, two defensive linemen, two linebackers and two defensive backs. The Hoosiers also welcomed one running back, one tight end, one kicker and one fullback/linebacker for the incoming class of 2009.

“We are excited that this group of young men has decided to join us,” Lynch said. “We feel we covered our positions of need with high-quality prospects that achieved a great deal throughout their high school careers. Our staff did a great job identifying, evaluating and recruiting this outstanding group, and we feel we became a better football program today.”

A busy day in HoosierLand

By   |   Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2009 - 9:46 PM   |   15 comments

You may not realize it if you live anywhere near here and can see out a window, but it’s baseball season. The Hoosiers have begun practicing (inside the friendly and covered confines of the Pavilion John Mellencamp built) and they have high expectations: Baseball America is predicting they’ll earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Tom Crean met with the media today to discuss Wednesday’s 6:30 tilt with the Iowa Hawkeyes. We’ll have a story on it in tomorrow’s paper. Or you can read/hear/watch what was said by clicking here.

Soccer coach Mike Freitag surprises nobody by filling the vacancy left by one Hoosiers legend, Todd Yeagley, with another: he hired Aleksey Korol.

Tomorrow’s National Signing Day, which is a holiday in many places. We’ll have coverage of what Bill Lynch has to say about the 18 players expected to sign with the Hoosiers.
