Indiana’s baseball team released it’s schedule. The following is the release from IU sports information.
Here’s some audio:
And here are some updates I typed while Lynch was talking:
Bill’s here. He’s running through the awards for the week. He goes too quickly for me to type, but Ray Fisher was a One-Play Warrior.
Lynch sees a great opportunity ahead.
“Our guys are here obviously because they love Indiana football,” he says, “but they also want to play Big Ten football and big-time games.”
Lynch says it’s a typical Iowa team. Well coached in all facets. Does the right thing when the moment calls for it.
“We know what we’re getting into,” he says.
Lynch says Indiana’s defensive staff did a good job of adjusting to Northwestern’s passing attack in the second half. They made adjustments in several coverages that led to the interceptions, he says.
The blocked punt was the killer, he said. And Northwestern was able to put together two long drives to win it.
“I thought the defense played better in the second half,” he says. “We didn’t make the plays there in the fourth quarter.”
Lynch says he has final say on all offensive plays. And he didn’t second-guess a single call on Saturday. His staff does a tremendous job in his estimation, and works hard (as do all coaches across the country.)
“Do I second-guess anything in that game?” he says. “No. It was a tough loss.”

Welcome to Hoosier Morning, a daily batch of links intended to keep you informed of what is going on at Indiana, in the Big Ten and throughout the college sporting world. (more…)
The news has apparently gone from bad to worse for Indiana. After Saturday’s heartbreaker, the Hoosiers also reportedly lost their top recruit in defensive lineman Jibreel Black. The brother of IU redshirt freshman defensive tackle Larry Black, Jr., told Bearcat Lair, Cincinnati’s Rivals.com site (subscription only), that he called the Indiana staff Sunday to tell them he was opting out of his verbal commitment with the Hoosiers and committing to Cincinnati. The site reports that Black made the decision in large part because the Bearcats are unbeaten and he thinks the program gives him a chance to play for a national championship.
David Williams and his teammates on the First Coast (Jacksonville) basketball team didn’t have school today. The head coach told them to take the day off from conditioning, too.
“They’re building a championship mentality,” Dwight Williams, David’s father, said. “They know they can be special, so they got in and worked.”
According to Will Sheehey’s high school coach, even college coaches from other schools knew Sheehey was a Tom Crean kind of player.
“We had a lot of coaches in from a lot of different schools,” said Adam Ross, basketball coach at Sagemont Upper School in Weston, Fla., where Sheehey will play his senior season. “And they even told us, ‘When Indiana gets down there to see him, they’re going to love him. Those type of kids do well for Coach Crean.’ Well, they did come down to see him. (Assistant coach) Tim Buckley and coach Crean and watched Will workout. They got very excited, I think, and offered him a scholarship.”
Despite Indiana’s heartbreaking meltdown against Northwestern on Saturday, and the fact that it needs to upset either Iowa, Wisconsin or Penn State to become bowl eligible, ESPN’s Bruce Feldman is still picking the Hoosiers to play in a bowl game.
