Indiana could actually beat Michigan State. Can the Hoosiers capitalize during their B1G opener?

We go under the lights. The winner gets a giant spitting pot. Look, we've got three months of no IU athletics, so let's take this time to preview the Hoosiers' opponents for this upcoming football season. Each week until the season, we'll be going through the opponents one by one and looking at whatever we find interesting and/or hilarious about them. And as always, the kick was good.

Yogi Ferrell inks deal to play Summer League with the Brooklyn Nets and that's a great call by him.

After going undrafted in the 2016 NBA Draft, Indiana's all-time assist leader will spend the summer trying to prove he belongs in the world's best league. Despite prognostications that Yogi Ferrell would be taken in the early-to-mid 2nd round of this year's NBA Draft, sixty picks came and went without his name being called. While hearing your name called on draft night is a dream for almost all collegiate players, the fact of the matter is that after the first 40 or so picks, it's probably better to just go undrafted and collaborate with your agent to find the best situation for you to...

Troy Williams to join Phoenix Suns Summer League team

The swingman went undrafted, but quickly found a landing spot. Recently departed IU forward and resident enigma Troy Williams has found a job. Williams chose to leave Indiana a year early to enter the draft, but as some expected he went undrafted last night, and has landed with the Phoenix Suns. According to the official IU basketball Twitter account, he'll be joining the Suns' summer league team. Before y'all decimate the comments with Hot Takes on how this proves Troy shouldn't have left, don't. The dude is who he is, and probably wasn't going to do a lot better than this unless he went...

NBA Draft: Top 5 Landing Spots For Troy Williams

With Troy Williams' future to be decided in the coming weeks, we take a look at the best teams for Williams' to join in the NBA. After a polarizing career at Indiana University, Troy Williams declared for the NBA Draft at season's end, then chose to remain in the draft despite a subpar performance at the NBA Draft Combine. With the Draft now less than two weeks away, Williams' future will be determined very soon. As a end-of-the-second-round prospect, Williams may be better off not being drafted, giving him options for a team that best fits him as opposed to potential being forced into a...

2016 NBA Draft: Top 5 Landing Spots For Yogi Ferrell

With one of the more illustrious Hoosier careers in the books, Yogi Ferrell's NBA future is an intriguing one with his destination imperative to his success. Perhaps no player in the last decade of Indiana University basketball ended their career as beloved as Yogi Ferrell. Despite not securing a National Title, Ferrell leaves the Hoosiers as the all-time leader in assists and one of the program's top 10 players of all-time. However, his departure brings many questions about his future in the NBA. Despite being lightning quick and a knock-down shooter, Ferrell's height is not conducive to a...

Big Ten releases 2016-17 Indiana basketball conference opponents

The path to a title defense has been laid out for Tom Crean's team -- and it's a manageable one. It's not quite the gift Indiana Basketball received from the league office in 2015-16, but the curtain has been pulled on the defending champs' conference opponents for the 2016-17. And it's fairly manageable. The path to a title defense. Big Ten home and away opponents next season. #iubb pic.twitter.com/Nlf4zaG6OR — Indiana Basketball (@IndianaMBB) June 20, 2016 The biggest highlight of the schedule will assuredly be the return of the the home & road Purdue series, and thus possibly...

An appreciation of Troy Williams, the avatar of basketball chaos and an Indiana Hoosier.

The enigmatic forward is headed for (hopefully) greener pastures, electing to ply his trade for cash and we at CQ thank him for his years of service. Troy Williams arrived at Indiana University following the program's first Big Ten title in over a decade, but the soul of that team: two seniors and two early-entrants into the NBA, weren't around by the time he arrived. The 35th best player in his recruiting class, per 247Sports, was expected to pair up with Noah Vonleh and join returning stars Will Sheehey and Yogi Ferrell to make the 2013-14 season a reload, not a rebuild, for Tom Crean and...

2016 Indiana baseball season will be remembered for disappointment or won't be remembered at all

A 32-24 record, bookended by 1-6 stretches of play, wasn't nearly good enough for the Hoosiers to get where they wanted to be and should have been in 2016. And for that, there's only one way to describe the season. If we're being honest, there's no way to describe the 2016 Indiana baseball season other than disappointing.Throughout every stretch of the season, it was hard to get excited for what was happening and what lied ahead. Disappointment the day the schedule was released. Kentucky would be the best team to step into the confines of Bart Kaufman Field, and Cal State Fullerton and...

Lots of folks went to see the Indiana Hoosiers play basketball this year.

The 2015-16 attendance numbers are out and the interest in Indiana basketball is, well, folks it's big. But how big is it? Depends on who you ask. Turns out people like to attend Indiana basketball games. The Hoosier men were 7th in home attendance for this past season, good for third in the Big Ten, which was the nation's top conference for attendance this year. The women came in at 38th, averaging a little under 3,000 fans per game. The Indiana men's program finished 9th in overall attendance as well, which counts all games (home, road, and neutral) which was, again, good for third in...

The Indiana Hoosiers are a 3-seed in Joe Lunardi's latest 2017 bracketology.

You might think June is a little early to be projecting the field for a tournament in March but Joe Lunardi didn't get where he was without hustle. Oh hey, it's June, that means it's time for ... bracketology? No that can't be ri- oh no yep we're doing bracketology today. With less than five months until the season starts, this makes sense. The latest projection from ESPN Bracketologist Joe Lunardi has the Hoosiers as a 3-seed playing in the Midwest regional, which will be in Kansas City this season. The South regional will feed into Memphis, the East into New York City, and the West into...

College football over-unders: Vegas pegs Indiana for 4.5 wins in 2016

It's 92 days until the 2016 college football season, which means an assortment of things. 1. We're a couple weeks away from the dog days of the sports calendar. 2. There's, like, no news about anything, ever. 3. VEGAS FUTURE BETS, BABE. Today, VegasInsider.com and the South Point sports book released everyone's favorite offseason speculative bet: win totals. And Vegas isn't particularly high on the Hoosiers in 2016. Despite coming off the Hoosiers' first bowl trip since 2007, the books set the over/under for Kevin Wilson's team at 4.5 for the 2016 season. That's right on par with...

Cody Latimer arrested on a misdemeanor warrant following an unrelated domestic disturbance.

A bizarre story out of Denver involving former Indiana Hoosier wide receiver, Cody Latimer. Well this is some story: JUST IN: Broncos wide receiver Cody Latimer arrested on misdemeanor warrant https://t.co/7hvtgb4k81 by @JesseAPaul pic.twitter.com/HWgAk9B6q4 — The Denver Post (@denverpost) May 31, 2016 Latimer was arrested for failing to appear in court regarding a traffic violation, which he has claimed he was not aware of. Which is actually a fairly regular thing in the world, for whatever reason. What makes Latimer's story different, is the police served the warrant after showing...
