Top 10 reasons Troy Williams was right to declare for the NBA Draft #iubb
April 12, 2016

The rules are different this year, so the number of college basketball players declaring for the NBA Draft has exploded.  Rightly so. College players who don’t hire an agent have until May 25th (10 days after the NBA Draft Combine) to declare their intention to return to school.  This is a player friendly rule that […]

Baseball is a Different Game Now at Indiana University
May 31, 2013

by Kent Sterling Baseball used to be played at a place called Sembower Field that was only feet away from Foster Quad.  Oddly, it was a hilly field.  Outfielders had to run uphill as they tracked a flyball toward the fence.  The bleachers were standard issue, and watching a guy like Bill Mueller hit bombs […]
