Penn State at Indiana: Discuss it here

Joey Lynch hired by Ball State

Joey Lynch, the son of Indiana coach Bill Lynch and brother of wide receivers coach Billy Lynch, has been hired by new Ball State coach Stan Parrish to coach the receivers at his alma mater. Lynch was a quarterback for the Cardinals and graduated after the 2006 season.

$5 tickets!

With average attendance at 12,807, Indiana is offering $5 tickets to students to Saturday’s 6 p.m. game with Penn State.

But don’t stop reading if your glorious college years are in the distant past. There’s a loophole: students maybe buy as many of these tickets as they want, and give them to whomever they want. So if you at least know somebody currently enriching their lives and stretching their intellectual boundaries in IU’s classrooms, you can probably finagle a spot in the Hall Saturday.

Or there might be some enterprising students who buy a batch of these $5 tickets and try to sell them for $10 or $7.50 or whatever.

But just because you get into the game with a student ticket and sit near all the students does not mean you will be hip enough to hit Sports later in the night (Nick’s is better anyway, right?)

Here’s a letter from Tom Crean, written to the students, about the Student Appreciation Night promotion. (more…)

The Palestra weighs in on Indiana’s situation

We’ve been lax in bringing you videos from our friends at, but here’s the latest on the Hoosiers from Ryan Cost.

What Kathi told Tony (Bennett)

For those of you wondering what kind of input former IU women’s coach Kathi Bennett might have had when brother Tony was among the hot prospects to replace Kelvin Sampson last spring, I asked her last night at Assembly Hall when she returned as a Wisconsin assistant. Here’s what she had to say:

“We talked about it. We talked, and Tony has his head on. He’s at a great place right now and it’s where he wants to raise his family.It wasn’t an issue of me being at IU or anything like that. He’s happy. He had other opportunities besides IU and he just … he knows what he’s about, and he’s not going to take a job because he’s afraid another one might not come along.”

Bennett added that she had “good things to say, very good things to say” about IU and Bloomington.

Wisconsin at IU women


Not Indiana’s finest performance, but a win is a win with Purdue looming Monday night at Assembly Hall.

:21.7, SECOND HALF: A travel on Wisconsin, and Kim Roberson makes two free throws going the other way to make it a two-possession game. HOOSIERS 62, BADGERS 58

:29.2, SECOND HALF: No stop, but Whitney Thomas is fouled on an offensive rebound at the other (she has another double-double) and hits both free throws. HOOSIERS 60, BADGERS 58

:52.6, SECOND HALF: Jamie Braun’s free throws give IU the lead. Hoosiers need a stop. HOOSIERS 58, BADGERS 56

1:38, SECOND HALF: Wisconsin’s ball after two Jori Davis free throws tie the game again. HOOSIERS 56, BADGERS 56

3:24, SECOND HALF: Wisconsin takes its first lead since the opening minute, building it to four, 52-48, on Mariah Dunham’s 3. Two Amber Jackson free throws and a Whitney Thomas putback ties it. IU now has the ball after forcing a shot clock violation. HOOSIERS 52, BADGERS 52

7:09, SECOND HALF: Wisconsin gets within one at 45-44, but Jamie Braun hits a miracle shot, looping the ball over two defenders and banking it in from 12 feet. Coach Jack is really pushing her players, trying to will them to victory down the stretch. HOOSIERS 47, BADGERS 44

11:16, SECOND HALF: Wisconsin’s not going anywhere, as Tara Steinbauer pulls the Badgers within two before Jori Davis’ fastbreak layup stops the bleeding. Indiana is going to have to come up with at least one more big run to win this one. HOOSIERS 41, BADGERS 37

15:54, SECOND HALF: A 7-0 IU run capped by Amber Jackson’s first points of the game opens things up a bit. Jamie Braun started the run with a jumper, and Jori Davis hit a 3. HOOSIERS 36, BADGERS 29


A lackluster first half by Indiana, but this game is right at the pace Wisconsin likes to play. With former IU coach Kathi Bennett helming the defense, the Badgers have given up just over 54 points a game this season. That’s exactly where we stand now. Whitney Thomas has 10 points and six rebounds to lead the Hoosiers. (more…)

Alston a Revolution, Ring an Earthquake

Indiana defender Kevin Alston was just taken with the No. 10 pick in the MLS SuperDraft by the New England Revolution, former home of IU great Pat Noonan. Alston was rumored to be among those considered for the first overall pick, but surprisingly fell to New England.

Teammate Brad Ring was taken by the San Jose Earthquakes early in the second round with the No. 17 pick overall. Ring will join former Hoosiers Nick Garcia and Ned Grabavoy on the Earthquakes roster.
