We’ll update you on this as soon as we hear any new information. If you guys hear anything on this — odds are the Big Ten Network will be informed of the decision first — feel free to post in the comments section.

In-game discussion: Notre Dame at IU

The Hoosiers had a team meeting earlier this week during which they shared every thought they had about this team and why it wasn’t playing up to its potential.

“It was kind of just like we all got together as a team,” Kevin Alston said. “We pretty much just got everything out there on the table. If you had something to say, you said it.”

Whatever was said, it worked.

Indiana snapped a two-game home losing streak and, coach Mike Freitag hopes, learned to play a full 90-minute game.

For senior Kevin Noschang, who made just his second start of the year and also scored his second goal, the win represents redemption for a program that many had written off.

“It’s weird to be on an IU soccer team that’s underrated,” he said. “For the first time, tonight, as a team, we felt like we were underrated. We were the underdog. We came in and wanted to show the country what we’re capable of and I think we did that.”


Less that four minutes remain in this game, and Notre Dame has still having only intermittent success in the offensive half of the field.


Indiana’s whittling away the final minutes of the game without much resistance from Notre Dame. This second half has been a solid effort from every position on the field. Forward Neil Wilmarth  has been important in making IU’s defense work, as he’s constantly come back to retrieve the ball out of his zone and been able to carry it through the midfield. He’s been fiesty, too, drawing two yellow cards from Notre Dame and receiving one of his own.

Lewis still day-to-day

The Indiana football team practiced this afternoon, with coaches once again punishing players and entire units when things went wrong

This week has definitely brought out a more antagonistic relationship between player and coach; it’s also amped up some of the players. There was more yapping and screaming out of the team than there has been in a while. You could also see that the increased “good vs. good” sessions — where the top players faced the top players instead of the scout teams — brought out more intensity from all involved.

“Really what we did was went back to a preseason camp mindset,” head coach Bill Lynch said. “More good-on-good, more competition, rewarding winners, getting after them for breakdowns and mistakes. I think they responded well.”

Starting quarterback Kellen Lewis sat out again. He appeared with a boot on his right foot again, and Lynch said he is “day-to-day.” This is the first time Lewis’ has worked through an injury of this nature, and Lynch wasn’t sure how he would respond.
