NCAA doesn’t want IU response before Sept. 26

By   |   Tuesday, Sep. 16, 2008 - 1:15 PM   |   11 comments

[2:55 UPDATE]

Indiana athletic director Rick Greenspan has commented on the NCAA’s letter. He said: “The University was fully prepared to meet its deadline established by the NCAA in its response to the failure to monitor allegation.  However, based upon the September 16 letter from the NCAA Committee on Infractions, we will work on final edits and submit on the new date required.”


The NCAA faxed to Indiana University today a letter (below) telling the university not to file or finalize its response to the allegation that it failed to monitor its basketball coaching staff until Sept. 26. That instruction gives IU an additional nine days to complete its response, which was previously due tomorrow.

The NCAA letter says the reason for the extension is that the Committee on Infractions is in the process of finalizing the part of its report dealing with allegations made against IU’s former coaches.

$20 Tickets at Marsh

By   |   Monday, Sep. 15, 2008 - 7:12 PM   |   12 comments

Indiana has teamed with Marsh to offerer special $20 tickets to the Hoosiers’ game against Ball State this weekend.

On Wednesday, the tickets will be available at the Marsh on East. 82nd Street in Indy. Don Fischer will also be there. Think about it: scoop up a new gallon of orange juice, get a pound of thinly sliced turkey and meet Fisch. That’s as lovely a Wednesday as they come.

On Thursday, the tickets will be available at the Marsh on Kinser Pike here in Bloomington. They’ll be sold from 4-7 p.m. and there will be other corresponding specials in the store, though there will be no Fischer. You can still get OJ and turkey, though.

In other ticket news, IU has unveiled a season ticket package that will get you a seat at the final six home games for $159. That’s a discounted price, considering that tickets to eight games originally cost $249.

…. in both polls.

One member (Joe Giglio of the News and Observer in Raleigh) of the AP poll thought the Cardinals belonged in the top 25 (at No. 25, to be precise), while two coaches believe they are worthy (the coaches don’t reveal their votes).

Here’s the proof.
