What Did We Learn: 2014-15 Season

The Hoosiers finished their latest campaign only a few games better than the previous year, and head into the offseason with many more questions than answers ... again. Indiana's last game of the year ended the same way many of their games had: as the screws tightened and the clocked ticked down, the Hoosiers became less capable of executing on either end of the floor. Unable to generate good looks on offense and incapable of defending without fouling is a terrible combination to ride to the buzzer, but that's what Indiana did. Onto the learnins': The offensive issues of last season were,...

Max Hoetzel to transfer from Indiana

Hoetzel's decision means the Hoosiers are no longer oversigned heading into next season. Indiana has announced that freshman forward Max Hoetzel has decided to transfer and leave the basketball program. CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein was first to report this decision, and the school confirmed it shortly afterwards. Hoetzel's transfer puts the Hoosiers back at the maximum amount of scholarships going into next season, meaning that IU is no longer oversigned. Whether this was Hoetzel's decision or just the result of "Creaning" is still up in the air. Hoetzel is the second Hoosier to transfer this...

Crimson Query with Black Heart Gold Pants: BASEBALL EDITION

Indiana baseball heads to Kevin Costner's backyard this weekend, or wherever the Iowa Hawkeyes play their home games. Hayden's_Aviators of BlackHeartGoldPants.com was nice enough to help us out with our first baseball version of Crimson Query. As a note, Iowa could never be confused for Heaven, which is the only thing that keeps Field of Dreams from being a perfect movies. Also, if Ray's farm had been in Indiana instead of Iowa, he wouldn't have had financial trouble because his corn would have been Indiana corn and it would have tasted good and people would have bought it and he would have...

SPRING FOOTBALL: Five things to watch for as the Hoosiers hit the field

Indiana football is back on the practice field this morning. Here's what you need to keep an eye on this spring. Let's talk about something besides basketball for a bit, yeah? Kevin Wilson has his SEC EAST CHAMPIONS (no, we're not gonna let that go, sorry) back on the field this morning between 17th and the bypass, with an eye towards the squad's cream and crimson game on April 18. Since this is Indiana, and y'all have probably forgotten everything relevant about football over the course of the last couple months -- let's refresh your mind with five things to keep an eye on as the Hoosiers...

Indiana Basketball: Five burning offseason questions

We're not even a week into the offseason for Indiana basketball, but there are already several concerns about the Hoosiers that will need to be answered in the coming months. Time to run down the five biggest questions about this team going forward. 1. Who will be on the roster next season? Currently the Hoosiers are once again oversigned for next fall, and with no seniors on the roster this year, two scholarship players will have to make room for new recruits Juwan Morgan and O.G. Anunoby. Say what you will about the ethics or the integrity of this practice, but for better or worse it is...

Hoosiers Baseball Shuts Out No. 7 Louisville

Tuesday night's 3-0 win over the No. 7 Louisville Cardinals was everything that Manager Chris Lemonis and his Hoosiers needed. There could be no better way to wipe away the foul taste left in Indiana's collective mouth after Sunday's letdown than by blanking the Cardinals and doing so without a single error. It was impossible to know what to expect Tuesday night at Bart Kaufman Field. Indiana fans could only hope that Sunday's defensive breakdown against Penn State was an anomaly. That hope was rewarded with what was Indiana's best win to date. The Hoosiers (16-5, 1-1) used dominant...

Lemonis Welcomes Former Club, No. 7 Louisville, to Bloomington

Hopefully the Indiana Hoosiers have short memories. Just two days after a major letdown at Penn State, they welcome their manager's former team, the No. 7 Louisville Cardinals to Bart Kaufman Field for a one-night affair. Louisville is fresh off a sweep of Notre Dame and sits in 1st place in the ACC. WHO: No. 7 Louisville Cardinals (18-6, 8-1 ACC) at No. 19 Indiana (15-5, 1-1 Big Ten) WHEN: Tuesday, 5:05 PM. WHERE: Bart Kaufman Field; Bloomington, Indiana. 3 Things to Watch: 1. How long will Scott Effross last? If a starter can be brilliant while only throwing 11 pitches, Scott Effross was...

Defensive Meltdown Haunts Hoosiers in Game Two

A couple innings into Game One of Sunday's B1G doubleheader, all was right in the world and Indiana baseball was on its way to an easy two-game sweep of lousy Penn State. An extra inning squeaker and one defensive meltdown later, the Hoosiers were left scratching their heads, wondering how they let a sure thing slip away. Game 1 A four-run 2nd inning had Indiana in prime position to start the Big Ten season with an easy win, but Penn State wouldn't let the weekend go the way it was supposed to go. In the bottom of the 4th, the Nittany Lions became the third straight opponent to knock around...

GAME RECAP: #7 Wichita State 81, #10 Indiana 76

The Hoosiers lose a heartbreaker and a dramatic up-and-down season is over. Here's what we learned. This recap is going to be quick, and we'll have more thoughts on the season later, but for now here's what we learned from an 81-76 loss in Omaha: 1. Indiana did more than enough on offense to win this game. The Hoosiers went 11-for-22 from the 3-point range, shot 85% from the line, and four guys scored in double figures. Guys were capitalizing on second chances, scoring at the basket, and shooting well all game. Overall, this was a valiant effort and the offense was clicking in ways that it...

Hoosier Baseball Atop B1G Power Rankings

11 consecutive wins, a record of 14-4, and a spot in the Top-25. Indiana baseball is on fire as they get ready to start Big Ten play this weekend at Penn State.

Crimson Query with Mid-Major Madness

Benjamin Miraski, editor of SB Nation blog Mid-Major Madness, stopped by to give his thoughts on Wichita State, the Hoosiers' NCAA Tournament opponent on Friday. In the Q&A, Benjamin and I discuss how the Shockers did this season, how the potent Wichita State backcourt matches up with Indiana's, and how coach Gregg Marshall has been so successful. 1. Wichita State! Nice to be playing you guys for the first time since 1989. The Shockers went 28-4 this season and won the Missouri Valley regular season title. How do Wichita State fans feel about how this season has progressed thus...
