Turns out there’s a new airport

By   |   Wednesday, Nov. 12, 2008 - 10:19 AM   |   18 comments

You know it’s an historic day when the military band greets you with a rousing instrumental of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

The new Indianapolis Airport is shiny. And quiet. And quite uncrowded. I have no idea if this place is more spacious/more well designed/awesome at making you not realize how many people are around or if it’s simply a slow day to fly. For all I know, there are thousands of people wandering the old airport aimlessly.

Have to say I’m a little upset that I didn’t get to go through the newfangled  full body scanner they have at security here. The security dude made me take my hooded sweatshirt off and I was thinking how strange that was because the new scanners can supposedly see through clothing (creepy, I know.) It wasn’t so bad taking the sweatshirt off: I got to show my rad Ryan Howard t-shirt. Much jealously ensued.

Most of the people I talked to about flying on the first day at a new airport warned of major kinks. So far, I’ve noticed few. The credit card machine didn’t work at the magazine shop. The lady at the ticket counter complained about not having phones. I told her that just meant her bosses couldn’t call her. Her day brightened.

Guess all there is to do now is to wait to see if this new place can succeed at its main function: flying passengers where they need to go (and getting their luggage to go to the same place.)



Indiana 72, Bemidji State 54 (Final)

First things first….greatest picture of Tijan Jobe ever taken.

Now, to the game.

There were dicey moments.

Namely a 10-point run by Bemidji State to open the second half, which cut Indiana’s lead to 37-36.

Indiana coach Tom Crean didn’t really have any words of enouragement for his team.

He just started putting new players in. And that’s the lesson from tonight: this year, Crean won’t wait for a player to get into the game. It’s got to be immediate, or you’ll be on the bench and somebody else will be giving it a try.

“Energy is going to be king,” Crean said.

The Beavers, a Division II team, certainly were more of a physical challenge than Anderson, a Division III team, was. Indiana’s starting back court did not respond well: Matt Roth (1-for-3), Verdell Jones (3-for-11) and Devan Dumes (2-for-10) were a combined 6-for-24.

“I’m glad that we had to go through it, and I’m glad that we found some guys to come off the bench to change the momentum,” Crean said.

Daniel Moore and Malik Story seemed to provide the most energy off the bench tonight.  Moore was 2-for-3 — including one impressive drive to the basket — and finished with five points, three assists, two turnovers and a steal in 18 minutes. Story led the team with 15 points in 19 minutes and added seven rebounds.

“I think my role tonight was to bring energy off the bench,” said Story, a freshman from Los Angeles.

Story’s natural inclination is to play more of a perimeter game. He did shoot four 3s on Tuesday night (and made two) but he also showed an increased willingness to scrap.

“I’m learning to use my size and quickness against the bigger players,” he said.

Kyle Taber made his return to the court; he’s still in the early days of being cleared after August knee surgery, and was limited to 15 minutes. In that time, he had nine rebounds, tied for a team high with Tom Pritchard (who played 30 minutes, more than anybody).

Pritchard was once again tough in the paint, and he once again struggled to finish. He was 3-for-10.

And though Pritchard will have to be play a huge role, his spot is not safe. He was yanked less than five minutes into the game after struggling to defend.

“It’s hard for me to look and think, let’s pay through this,” Crean said. “We don’t have any demonstrated ability to play through it yet.”

Taber expected to play

Kyle Taber slaps hands with his teammates.

In what constitutes a major news story with IU basketball (the times the are a changing), senior forward Kyle Taber is expected to make his return to the court tonight for the Hoosiers’ exhibition game with Bemidji State.

Taber, the lone senior and returning scholarship player on Tom Crean’s first team, has been out since late August after having knee surgery. It is unclear how close to being in game-shape he actually is, though he would probably be a natural fit to play the “4″ tonight against a Beavers team that will have a little bit of size.
