You may not realize it if you live anywhere near here and can see out a window, but it’s baseball season. The Hoosiers have begun practicing (inside the friendly and covered confines of the Pavilion John Mellencamp built) and they have high expectations: Baseball America is predicting they’ll earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Tom Crean met with the media today to discuss Wednesday’s 6:30 tilt with the Iowa Hawkeyes. We’ll have a story on it in tomorrow’s paper. Or you can read/hear/watch what was said by clicking here.
Soccer coach Mike Freitag surprises nobody by filling the vacancy left by one Hoosiers legend, Todd Yeagley, with another: he hired Aleksey Korol.
Tomorrow’s National Signing Day, which is a holiday in many places. We’ll have coverage of what Bill Lynch has to say about the 18 players expected to sign with the Hoosiers.
J.D. “The Coat rack” Campbell of Indiana media relations fame has informed us that two games originally marked TBA have been, well, announced.
Indiana will play Purdue in West Lafayette on Feb. 21 at 2 p.m. That’s a Big Ten Network game.
It will host Michigan State on March. 3 in a 7 p.m. game that will be broadcast by ESPN.
Like most of you, I’m watching today’s game on the Big Ten Network. But my friends from the IDS, Jeremy Rosenthal and Dave Leno, are in Columbus and will be providing updates and analysis. Feel free to join the discussion as IU aims to reclaim first in the Big Ten.
Evoking all sorts of images from that Charlie Daniels classic, Bob Knight is reportedly interested in taking the head coaching job at Georgia.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Furman Bisher, who’s old enough to hold grudges against anyone with Japanese lineage for Pearl Harbor, first reported that Knight wants the Georgia job, but won’t ask for it.
Now, the AJC’s Tim Tucker has this â€” the Bulldogs would welcome Knight to Athens.Â
â€œIâ€™d like to play for Coach Knight â€” as long as he doesnâ€™t hit me,â€ freshman forward Trey Thompkins said.
Thompkins said he was kidding, of course. But maybe he wasn’t, and just didn’t want his first meeting with Knight to be physical.
Knight has also been connected with the Alabama job, though it seems unlikely that Nick Saban, the only man with an ego large enough to challenge Knight’s, would let that happen.
