Tyrese Fryfogle spurns family ties to Ole Miss, commits to Indiana

The son of a former Ole Miss player was set to visit Oxford this weekend, but committed to Grant Heard & Indiana after a visit tonight anyway. A big win for Indiana’s new offensive coaching staff in the recruiting battle tonight. After an weekend visit to Bloomington and an in-home visit from Tom Allen, Mike DeBord, and Grant Heard tonight, Mississippi wideout Tyrese Fryfogle committed to Indiana over his father’s Ole Miss. The under-the-radar, late-bloomington prospect from George County High School only held three scholarship offers from an odd combination of schools — Ole Miss,...

Zander Diamont now working at Kilroy’s, is big Tom Crean fan

A recap from an rollicking two hours of radio that featured our Twitter logo. Tonight, now-former Indiana QB Zander Diamont joined The Tall Trio on IU radio station WIUX for an entertaining two-plus hours of conversation. Diamont is still on campus for one more semester, and he revealed some interesting post-football plans. The full interview, in case you missed it, can be found here. Here’s our tweetcap of his radio appearance: Now that football’s over, he’s working at Kilroy’s: Apparently now that his #iufb career is over, Zander Diamont is working at Kilroy's. He just started:...

THE PODCAST WAS GOOD: Let’s talk about Tom Crean, because it’s January, I guess

We did what any reasonable Indiana-based content creator does when they can’t find anything else to talk about: ramble on about Tom Crean’s job in Bloomington After a threeish month absence mostly birthed out of laziness and my lack of a desire to upgrade to more storage space on Soundcloud, THE PODCAST WAS GOOD IS BACK -- FOR A SECOND SEASON. Within, we talk about Tom Crean — and what reasonable & unreasonable expectations should be for his future at Indiana. Also, Indiana’s winning 8 games in football in 2017. Also your tweets? They’re bad. LISTEN IN:

Three Things: Indiana 76, Festering Fungus 57

Three Things: Indiana 76, Festering Fungus 57

Indiana improved to 2-3 despite playing a non-conference game on Saturday. Indiana won the most boring Big Ten basketball game of the season on Saturday, trumping Rutgers 76-57. The Hoosiers were led by James Blackmon, Jr., who continues to shine offensively for Indiana, now 12-6 on the season, 2-3 in the conference. That’s really all the analysis that this game deserves, but we are a blog of the people, so here are the three things that stood out: De’Ron Davis. Yet again, Thomas Bryant looked lost while on the floor for Indiana. In 23 minutes, the sophomore was 3-for-9 from the field...

Indiana’s offense will have plenty of extremely tall (and good) weapons in 2017

Tom Allen’s initial season at the helm could be poised to be Indiana’s best season in recent memory. The first of our five-part way-too-early preview looks at the projected starters for 2017. Start the hype train now. If there’s ever going to be a Year for Indiana football, 2017 has as good a chance as any. Next season, Indiana will return 17 of 22 starters, return crucial stars that missed the 2016 season with injury, and face a more-than-workable schedule with 7 teams that finished below 85th in the final S&P rankings of the 2016 season. It’ll all kick off with Kevin Wilson’s...

Three Things: Maryland 75, Indiana 72

RIP Indiana’s Big Ten Championship chances: December 28, 2016 - January 10, 2017. Four games into conference play, Indiana’s Big Ten title aspirations have been quashed. In what was essentially a must-win game, Indiana played the Terrapins close, though not well, for 40 minutes but was unable to get the job done on the road against Maryland. Some of Indiana’s biggest names were nowhere to be found in the 75-72 loss. Thomas Bryant finished with just six points and O.G. Anunoby had just five. Maryland finished with nine blocks, smothering every inside attempt the Hoosiers made on the...

Tom Crean, criticisms and the state of Indiana basketball

Tom Crean, criticisms and the state of Indiana basketball

Tom Crean is a flawed head coach. Indiana is a flawed team. The Hoosiers can still be great in spite of both of those things. Two things have become abundantly clear about the Indiana Hoosiers: They are a flawed basketball team. Firing Tom Crean is, and never will be, a solution to their problems. We’ll come back to the first point, but the second point is one that, unfortunately, needs addressing. Teams lose. Even the ones named champions at the end of the year don’t win every game. They often have some really bad losses. UConn’s 2014 team lost on the road against Houston, who...

Big Ten butt rankings: January 9

So far, Big Ten basketball has pretty much been butt. Let’s rank how butt each team is. Normally I would do a power rankings right now.

Illinois 80, Indiana 96: Three things from the Hoosiers' win over the Illini.

Illinois 80, Indiana 96: Three things from the Hoosiers' win over the Illini.

Indiana stopped their skid at the doorstep of disaster, blowing past the Illinois Illini in Assembly Hall. The Hoosiers got off the conference schneid with a big win over Illinois. Here's three observations: Indiana got off to a fast start, and Illinois never recovered. A common theme from the three-game skid for Indiana was each game containing a slow start from Indiana that they seemed to be playing catch-up to for a lot of the game. This evening, Indiana raced out to a 15-0 lead, holding Illinois scoreless for nearly ten minutes to start the game and forced the visitors to spend the rest...

Indiana linebacker Marcus Oliver declares for the NFL Draft

He becomes the second Indiana Hoosier to declare for the draft in the last, like, eight minutes. In a slightly more surprising but just as understandable move, Marcus Oliver will be joining his teammate Devine Redding in the NFL. pic.twitter.com/jpYrS8lMHy — Marcus Oliver (@TeamMFO32) January 6, 2017 Oliver is coming off a monstrous junior campaign in which he was second on the team in tackles, with 19.5 TFL/sacks, 2 pass break-ups, and an absurd 5 forced fumbles. He and fellow linebacker Tegray Scales became one of the more intimidating linebacker combinations in the Big Ten and...

Redding becomes the third straight Indiana running back to leave early for the NFL, following in the footsteps of Tevin Coleman and Jordan Howard.

Thank you all for making it possible. pic.twitter.com/r3i8NGEGLk — Devine Redding (@D1vine_34) January 6, 2017 Redding has put together back-to-back 1,000 yard rushing campaigns for the Hoosiers and is likely in a position in which his stock can't get much higher than it already is.

Wisconsin 75, Indiana 68: Three things from the Hoosiers’ third straight loss

It might be time to reckon with a not-all-that-fun reality: Indiana isn’t very good. Indiana falls to Wisconsin for the 16th time in the last 18 meetings, 75-68 in Assembly Hall tonight. Ethan Happ led all scorers with 19 points for the Badgers. Here’s three quick takeaways from tonight. Indiana can’t afford slow starts like tonight Here’s a stat for ya.

Report: Indiana to hire Mike Debord as Offensive Coordinator

Report: Indiana to hire Mike Debord as Offensive Coordinator

Well, today’s fun. On the heels of the our report that Kevin Wilson is heading to Ohio State to take the offensive coordinator position, Indiana has a new man to replace Kevin Johns in the same role. It’s Mike DeBord, who’s departing Butch Jones’ staff at Tennessee to take the job in Bloomington. DeBord, a Muncie native and graduate of Manchester University, has deep Indiana and Big Ten ties. He spent from 1993 to 1999 as Michigan’s offensive line coach and then returned to Michigan as special teams coordinator, then offensive coordinator from 2004 to 2007. He was the head coach...
