The New York Times is not hopeful

The New York Times’ college sports blog has embarked on a rather ambitious little project. It is ranking all 120 F.B.S teams, from highest to lowest, and has reached No. 105.

Yes, the Indiana Hoosiers.

Comment as you see fit.


AMC wrap-up chat


Williams headed to Ole Miss

Nick Williams, one of two freshmen to depart the Indiana basketball program, has announced the school he will (presumably) finish his career at.

Ole Miss, which is substantially closer to his home in Mobile, Ala, announced today that Williams will enroll at the school.

“Nick is a talented, versatile wing who we are fortunate to welcome into our program,” Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said in a press release.

Williams announced he was transferring in mid-April. Indiana coach Tom Crean said at the time that Williams was upset about playing time, and his present and future role.

Williams told Rivals.com (subscription required) that proximity to home and playing style were his reasons for choosing the Rebels.

Malik Story, the other player to depart the program, has not announced his future plans.


AMC will stay in Bloomington

Well, that problem was resolved quickly.

Criss Beyers, who organizes the adidas May Classic, was concerned that he’d have to move the event next year because prices at the SportsPlex, which became a city-owned facility on Friday, were going up.

While Bloomington Parks and Recreation Director Mick Renneisen was unwilling to budge on the proposed per hour, per court charges (they still need to be approved by the parks and rec board) for Beyers, he did go ahead and find a partner that was willing to erase the hit to Beyer’s budget. Renneisen said Sunday that the Hoosier Sports Corp., a division of the Bloomington/Monroe County Convention and Visitors Bureau, had agreed to become a partner for the event. Eric Marvin, a spokesman for that group, said late last week that the AMC would have an estimated economic impact of of $1.5 million and said it was one of the CVB’s “big fish.” He said keeping it here was a priority, and that he hoped to help find a solution quickly.

It came together in a matter of days.

Beyers spoke with Renneisen Sunday and agreed to keep the tournament — which began in 2000 because an original goal for the people who built the SportsPlex was to use it to bring top-flight summer games to Bloomington — in the only home it has known.

“This weekend went extremely well and we’re satisfied with the new deal we have in place with the city,” Beyers said. “The tournament is going to stay in Bloomington and we’re going to play at SportsPlex and we’re looking forward to it.”


Teague and Thomas eliminate Carlino and Co.

How else to spend Sunday morning in Indiana than at the basketball court?

A few hundred people did just that as they gathered in the auxilary gym to watch the Spiece Under-17 entry led by top prospects Marquis Teague and DeShaun Thomas beat the Indiana Elite group led by future Hoosier Matt Carlino 75-64 in one of the better games of the tournament.

Thomas, a 6-foot-7 wing from Fort Wayne who has given a verbal comittment to Ohio State, held the ball at the end of the first half and hit a deep 3 to give Spiece a 41-30 lead.

Elite began its comeback with a deep Spencer Turner 3. Then Cody Zeller, the 6-9 forward out of Washington, worked inside for a basket and Carlino surged into the game with a tear-drop shot from the lane and a drive through the defense for a lay-in.

Zeller gave Elite the lead after Turner recongized a mismatch under the net and yelled for the ball to go inside. Zeller scored easily, was fouled and hit a free throw that made it 46-45.

A few minutes later, Thomas calmly pulled up for a 3 to tie the game at 48, and then Teague drove the lane for a bucket.

The teams traded buckets as the game tilted back and forth, but a 3-point play by Thomas, jump shot by Teague and turnovers by Zeller and Carlino allowed Spiece to pull away.

Thomas finished with 21 points and 16 rebounds. Teague, who was in foul trouble most of the game and sat down with his fifth late in the game, had 10 points.

Carlino scored 17 points, grabbed six rebounds and had four assists. Zeller finished with 17 points and 14 rebounds, as he continued his emergence during this tournament. Turner had 13 — including 3-of-7 shooting from 3 — playing in his home building.


IU soccer tidbits

And now this interruption from your weekend basketball programming.

If you’ve wondered why you haven’t seen former IU star Brad Ring on the pitch for the San Jose Earthquakes this season, it’s because he’s resting. Ring has been diagnosed with fluid on the hips, and is hoping to avoid surgery by laying low for another 2-3 months.

From the past to the future. Zionsville junior Harrison Petts, the Gatorade Indiana Player of the Year for 2008-09, made a verbal commitment to IU in January. Petts was a National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-American honoree with 41 goals and 26 assists in leading Zionsville to the state finals.
