We (probably) found Kyle Schwarber’s flight to Cleveland on FlightAware

Skeptical of the report that he’ll play tomorrow? WE GOT YA COVERED. Skeptical of Jon Morosi’s report that Kyle Schwarber is flying to Cleveland right now to DH tomorrow in Game 1 of the World Series? Don’t worry! As good college football fans, we know how to verify that FLIGHTAWARE BACK The nearest airport to where the Cubs’ Arizona Fall League team plays in Mesa is Falcon Field. Here is an XOJet flight that departed from Falcon Field 15 minutes after Morosi’s tweet, destined for Cleveland’s downtown lakefront airport. I mean, sure, we don’t know that Kyle...

Big Ten Bowl Projections: The Hoosiers might be in trouble.

After a road loss in which the offense failed to make good on a second half shutout from their defense, Indiana has seen their margin for error effectively reduced to zero. Sound familiar? Indiana lost to Northwestern, more on that later. Let's check the rest of the league! CARNAGE REPORT: James Franklin's Penn State became the first team to beat Urban Meyer's Ohio State in a true road game and did it largely through the strength of special teams. If you missed this game because you were to busy celebrating the Cubes, as most of my friends did, you missed a great one. Illinois started a...

Big Ten power rankings: Indiana continues to fall

Plus, Ohio State lost and Kirk Ferentz invents new math. Let’s get right to it. 14. Michigan State Okay, so they probably aren’t the absolute worst team in the B1G, but in the middle of a dismal season in which they’ve lost 5 straight, I’m putting Sparty at the bottom of the list. At 2-5 and with games still to play against Michigan this weekend, and OSU and Penn State down the road, making it to 5 wins, let alone a bowl game, is not an easy proposition for MSU. For a team that went to the CFP last year, this decline has been steep and doesn’t show any signs of letting up. 13....

Troy Williams makes the Memphis Grizzlies roster

The talented swingman turned a lot of heads with his performance this preseason — and will now start his rookie season coming off an NBA bench. Well, it appears as if Troy Williams made the right decision for himself. After going undrafted, Williams’ superb preseason did not go unnoticed as he made the Memphis Grizzlies’ opening night roster, per Woj: Sources: Undrafted Indiana U. forward Troy Williams will make the Memphis Grizzlies opening night roster.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) October 22, 2016 After playing for the Phoenix Suns’ summer league team, Williams...

College Football Betting Guide: October 22, 2016

Last week was flat out embarrassing. Recap Last Week: 1-9 Overall: 30-30-3 Last Week's Best: Illinois (-6) at Rutgers I mean, it was the only one I got right, so I guess it was the best. Although, it feels wrong to call the pick that was like stealing candy from a baby the "best." Last Week's Worst: Everything Else Woof. After going 10-3-1 just two weeks ago, last week was the worst effort of the season. When I sat down and looked at all the results and my picks, I felt like Chevy Chase in Vegas Vacation when the blackjack dealer offers to give him his money back and kick him in the nuts...

Traveling to watch IU is the only acceptable reason to voluntarily spend time in Evanston Indiana travels to Evanston to face Northwestern this week. It’s been four years since the Hoosiers and Wildcats battled on the gridiron, but I’m not here to talk about the game.

Zander Diamont is a bandaid, not the cure

During Saturday’s Homecoming loss to Nebraska, Kevin Wilson returned to a two-quarterback system and Zander Diamont saw his first action of the year. Is that the answer for the Indiana offense? Zander Diamont provided a much-needed spark on Saturday. Indiana was trailing Nebraska 17-2 in the second quarter, Kevin Wilson sent Diamont in on a 3rd and 2 at midfield. The offense was already 1-for-4 on 3rd down (and 0-for-2 on 4th down) and while struggling to run the ball without All-American Dan Feeney and Dimitric Camiel, something non-traditional needed to be done. Diamont promptly ran for...

Tremont Waters commits to Georgetown

Georgetown capitalized on late momentum and secured a commitment from the four-star 2017 PG. The top remaining PG on Indiana's recruiting board for 2017 is now off the table. The 5'10", 160 lb PG out of New Haven, Connecticut made the call today, choosing Georgetown over the likes of Indiana, Kentucky, and Kansas. Tremont Waters has 3 hats on table: Georgetown, Kentucky, Indiana — Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) October 19, 2016 As recently as yesterday, Waters had been highly favored by recruiting analysts to commit to Indiana, but a late surge of momentum allowed John Thompson III...

Indiana has 7 of the top 18 football recruits in the state. Purdue is probably trying very hard.

With seven commits in the top 25, the Hoosiers are dominating Purdue and others in recruiting Indiana kids. The Hoosiers are dominating the state of Indiana in football recruiting. Thursday night, the Hoosiers picked up their seventh top-18 recruit in the state of Indiana and their 15th recruit overall. It’s not only the most top-20 recruits by one school, but the Hoosiers are the only school with at least five commits from the top 41 recruits, all of this according to 247sports. With Notre Dame’s recruiting focus on a national landscape, the Hoosiers are the primary powerhouse in the...

HOOSIER FILM ROOM: Why Indiana has struggled on the goalline

In this week’s film room, we take a look at why Indiana’s usually potent offense is struggling to punch it in from short distance. Author’s Note: A quick tip of the cap to Jacob Rude (@JacobRude) who creates the GIFs used in each and every film room. If the trend continues, the statistics will be discussed at length. Kevin Wilson’s Indiana Hoosiers, known the world over for their explosiveness, running prowess, ability to score on anyone, are just 12-for-18 (67%) in Red Zone Scoring. They are just 8-for-18 (44%) in Red Zone Touchdowns. As Kyle Swick noted in this week’s game...
