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.

Indiana 103, Anderson 71

Daniel Moore makes a save.

Overall, Indiana head coach Tom Crean was pleased with how his team played.

The 21-2 run was important for this team. Crean has been saying for weeks that he wasn’t sure how it would perform under the lights and against another team. He got his answer quickly.

“The crowd revved our team up so much,” he said.

The team apparently was nervous before the game, so Crean cut the walk through short. Instead, the team partook in a mosh-pit during which someone tried to kick Crean and mess up his hair.

Verdell Jones III, who had a smooth debut of 18 points, three assists and three steals, admitted to trying to mess up Crean’s carefully crafted hairstyle.

This really is a reality show.

Northwestern at IU soccer

FINAL: All the seniors get to play and it is a resounding victory for Indiana. We’ll see if this momentum carries into the postseason. HOOSIERS 2, WILDCATS 0

21:53, SECOND HALF: Second TV timeout here at Armstrong Stadium, and IU still dominating. Only in the last couple of minutes has Northwestern mounted any real threat, and Chay Cain has made the saves. HOOSIERS 2, WILDCATS 0


In what may have been the Hoosiers’ best first half of the season, Indiana thoroughly dominated Northwestern. We’ll see if they can sustain the high level of play. HOOSIERS 2, WILDCATS 0

7:07, FIRST HALF: Neil Wilmarth took on multiple defenders then laid the ball off to Andy Adlard. Adlard’s driving shot was turned away by the goalkeeper, but John Mellencamp was there to clean up with a volley into the net. HOOSIERS 2, WILDCATS 0

19:26, FIRST HALF: Will Bruin on the receiving end of a corner kick by Andy Adlard, and he heads it home for the lead. HOOSIERS 1, WILDCATS 0

BTN streaming FAQ

By   |   Thursday, Nov. 6, 2008 - 3:57 PM   |   23 comments

We had a couple of question on our chat earlier today about the Big Ten Network’s plan to stream Indiana’s two preseason exhibitions on its Web site.

Though I may be late, I have some answers.

Q: Why does the BTN stream additional basketball games instead of showing them on the overflow channels as it does with football?

A: Here’s what BTN spokesman Mike Vest had to say.

“Overflow channels aren’t available during basketball season because of the capacity of our facility in Houston. There are a lot of other games that are fed out of Houston during prime time in the season, such as NBA, NFL and other college games, as well as ours.”

Q: Are streamed games archived on the Web site to watch later?

A: Yes, they are.

Q: Will the BTN continue to make use of streaming technology?

A: Yes. According to Vest the network will expand its use of Web-casting to women’s basketball and other sports in coming years. He also said technology advances should improve the quality of the broadcasts.

Buy Tom Crean’s old car

Crean’s old car. Crean’s car.

I thought about not publicizing this so that I could purchase this ride myself, but then I remembered I’m broke.

So here it is: a craigslist ad for the car Tom Crean has driven the past six months.
