Hopes high for Hatter Fall Classic

The Hoosiers begin play in the three-day, 54-hole Hatter Fall Classic in Howley-In-The-Hills, Fla., today. The tournament will be played at the Mission Inn Golf and Tennis Resort's El Campeon Course. The NCAA Championships were played there last year. "Our expectations are good," said coach Sam Carmichael . "I think we've been playing well and I think it's a good course for us. It's an excellent golf course. It's got good tight fairways and nice length. You have to hit good shots, you can't get lucky and scatter the ball. But I think we'll hit the ball and it'll be a good course for us."

Season opens on home ice

Tryouts have ended. The lineup is set. The ice is prepared. All that's left now is the drop of the puck. At 7:30 p.m. today at the Frank Southern Ice Center,1965 S. Henderson St., the Hoosiers open the 2001-2002 hockey season against longtime ACHA rival Central Michigan University.

"We've been practicing real hard, especially this past week, and I'm looking forward to finally seeing these guys in action." The Hoosiers have reason for optimism as the team has more than 20 returning players from last year's group that finished sixth in ACHA Division II National rankings. Included among the returnees is the high-scoring trio of seniors Dan Hauck, Brandon Phillips and team MVP Bryan Grant.

Team ready for revenge

Women's volleyball team loses to Illinois

The women's volleyball team traveled to Illinois Wednesday to take on Illinois. Their efforts weren't enough to pull of a win against the Fighting Illini. IU was dominated by Illinois who had 20 team blocks over IU's four. Hitting percentages hurt the Hoosiers as well. Illinois boasted a .279 while IU was at .036.

The Hoosiers gave a good fight that ended in a close game, 33-35.

Offense hopes to fix slip-ups

In the 1970s, the Minnesota Vikings defense returned a fumble 70 yards. Except it was in the wrong direction. In 1986, Boston Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner could have made a routine play during game six of the World Series. Instead, the ball went between his legs, and the New York Mets won the title. In the mid-1990's, then-Texas left fielder Jose Conseco got a brilliant idea that he was going to pitch. He threw out his arm instead and was out for a season. In 2001, the Hoosier offense scored the most points to date in the Big Ten with 63 points against Wisconsin and had 631 total yards. The offense followed that performance by scoring 14 points and gaining 359 total yards in last week's 35-14 loss against Illinois.

Team returns to Top 25 in nation

The men's cross country team showed promise in the Pre-National meet in South Carolina this weekend, finishing 11th out of 34 teams. In doing so, the team beat several ranked opponents.

Hoosiers seek to tie it together

They stand 4-12 overall and 1-7 in the Big Ten, but the women's volleyball team is far from giving up. After heartbreaking losses to Michigan and Michigan State this weekend, the Hoosiers said they are ready to add some wins to their record. Their next chance at a win is tonight against Illinois at 7 p.m.

Sophomore has long golf history

In the Hoosiers' first tournament at the Northern Invitational Sept. 21-23, sophomore Mary Lidester set a new personal three-round low. At the next opportunity, the Legends Shootout Oct. 8-9, Lidester shattered the record by eight strokes, posting a 220 three-round score.

Hoosiers renew rivalry

It appears it is no longer about winning for the men's soccer team. It's about if the other team will even score. Notre Dame comes to Bill Armstrong Stadium tonight hoping to both score and win, and slow down a hot Hoosier team and get past a seemingly impenetrable defense.
