Thin air, high hopes

·

In February, Utah's Rice-Eccles Stadium played host to the world for the Winter Olympics. On Saturday, it will play host to the Hoosiers (1-0) as they take on the Utes (1-0) at 7 p.m. EST. The long flight out to Salt Lake City will mark IU's furthest westward jaunt since they took on Baylor in the 1991 Copper Bowl in Tucson, Ariz. Senior quarterback Tommy Jones said he doesn't think that being cooped up on a long plane ride will have an effect on the team.

Freshman making most of opportunity

·

In last Saturday's game, freshman John Pannozzo did something that hasn't been done at IU since 1999. Pannozzo hauled in two touchdown passes from senior Tommy Jones becoming the first IU player since Jerry Dorsey to catch two touchdowns in a game. The first touchdown gave IU its first lead of the game -- one they would not relinquish. The second touchdown was equally as important because provided needed insurance since William and Mary was driving for the tying touchdown. Seems like an impressive feat until you talk with Pannozzo.

Cry for us, Argentina wins

·

Argentina pulled off a victory that until recently seemed nearly impossible, beating the United States 87-80 Wednesday night in the World Championships. It was the first loss for a U.S. team in 59 games since the Americans began sending NBA players to international tournaments in 1992. The defeat did not knock the U.S. team out of the tournament, but gave them a lower seed for the medal round where the nations could meet again. "We'll be back to win the gold," defiant guard Baron Davis said.

Title possible in eyes of new soccer coach

·

This season the women's soccer team is sporting new shades of cream and crimson on their jerseys. They also have a Purple Ace on the sideline. Patrolling the sideline this year for the Hoosiers is Mick Lyon, the former University of Evansville coach. Lyon spent nine seasons coaching the Purple Aces and has knowledge and experience coaching in the Hoosier state, winning six consecutive Missouri Valley Conference titles since 1996. In that same time period the Hoosiers have only mustered one Big Ten title.

'Canes and Gators meet Saturday, rivalry continues

·

After a 15-year wait, the Hurricanes and Gators resume their regular-season rivalry at The Swamp on Saturday with more than a national championship run riding on the outcome. There's bad blood between these rivals from the Florida Flop in 1971 to the flying peaches in 1980 to the Bourbon Street Brawl.

Fans come out when team starts winning

·

As Steve Schott surveyed the steady stream of people crowding into the Coliseum before Wednesday night's game, he finally discovered the solution to the Oakland Athletics' perpetual lack of fan support. "I guess if we win 19 in a row every time, everybody will come out to support us," the A's owner said with a grin.

2 soccer players bring worldly experience home

·

As the IU men's soccer team prepared for their opening matches last week, two of the Hoosiers top scorers were nowhere to be found. Sophomore midfielder Ned Grabavoy and sophomore forward Mike Ambersley were in L'Alcudia, Spain, competing for the United States Under-20 National Team in the COTIF XIX Torneig Internacional.

Superior Spitz

Seven events. Seven gold medals. Seven world records. Possibly the greatest single Olympic performance ever. But for American swimming legend and former Hoosier Mark Spitz, his unprecedented and unmatched achievement at the 1972 Munich Olympics simply represented the final chapter in his storied career. When Spitz looks back 30 years, he sees Munich as "the culmination of a journey of different events in my career." The string of Munich races he won - 100 and 200-meter butterfly, 100 and 200-meter freestyle, and three team relays - ended an incredible stretch to close his career.

Hoosiers can't make it 2 in a row

As the clock struck midnight on the IU field hockey team Tuesday, the young Hoosiers were faced with an important lesson: Success doesn't come overnight. Although IU is much deeper and more talented than in 2001, the Hoosiers could not follow up their season opening win. They lost to Maine 2-1. While the Hoosiers (1-1) could not pull out the victory, coach Amy Robertson did find several positives to take out of Tuesday's game.

Davenport waits out rain, advances to quarters

·

NEW YORK -- Lindsay Davenport spent the better part of Monday sitting by a window at the National Tennis Center while rain fell. Once play started, she rose to the occasion. Playing just her fifth tournament since knee surgery, Davenport moved into the U.S. Open quarterfinals by beating 13th-seeded Silvia Farina Elia of Italy 6-3, 6-1 in a match that started more than 7 hours late because of downpours.

Coach brings confidence

·

Last year at this time the women's cross country team faced a major dilemma. They had to deal with the loss of 2000 NCAA qualifier Allyson Hammond, who was out for the year with an injury. The team struggled and was unable to rebound from her injury and ultimately finished 9th in the Big Ten.

Oakland wins 19th straight

·

Miguel Tejada and the Oakland Athletics simply refuse to lose -- even when the degree of difficulty gets higher and higher. Tejada got his second straight game-ending hit as the A's matched the longest winning streak in AL history with their 19th straight victory Monday, beating the Kansas City Royals 7-6.

Spain remains undefeated

·

INDIANAPOLIS - Spain used the lessons it learned against Turkey a year ago to remain undefeated in the World Championships. Spain played poorly on defense and lost last year to Turkey in the European Championships in an ugly game that saw Spanish coach Javier Imbroda ejected and several players fighting late in the game.

·
