Team looks for first win

·

Much has been said about the season snowballing and confidence disappearing after the football team's 0-3 start. The Hoosiers' offense has struggled, and its defense -- although improved -- is giving up too many key first downs. Coach Cam Cameron said he doesn't think about the potential for an 0-4, 0-5, 0-whatever start. His team's motto: There's no such thing as a bad day.

Together on and off the field

Senior Devin Schaffer has eleven tackles in three football games. He's played in 36 games in his career at IU, and started in 25. He's arguably one of the two top starting linebackers on the Hoosier football team. And he snores. Loud.

Juggling more than a hobby

·

When he started a juggling club at IU in 1984, Steve Ragatz was trying to bring together people who shared his interest in the sport. Although he usually succeeded in persuading his friends to meet twice a week and throw balls, rings and pins at each other, he never expected the club would one day draw such a broad spectrum of talent.

We're back in the home run race again

·

When I was a freshman I was often glued to my dorm room television during those times I should have been studying. I wasn't unique though -- most of my floormates could be found doing the same thing. The reason: we were all fascinated by the Great Home Run Race of 1998 between Mark McGwire of the St. Louis Cardinals and Sammy Sosa of the Chicago Cubs.

Errors cost Hoosiers game

·

Forty-four yards and it seemed the football team was back in the game. After a strong goal line stand by the defense, the offense used momentum to take the ball down the field. After a 44-yard touchdown pass from senior Antwaan Randle El to senior running back Levron Williams, IU was a score away from the lead.

Senior transfer gets long awaited opportunity

·

The men's cross country team has worked their way to a Top 20 national ranking. While many runnners have followed the traditional path to contribute to the squads recent success, Josh Trisler has taken several detours to get where he is today. Trisler, a fifth-year senior from Carmel, Ind., transferred to IU two years ago from DePauw University. Redshirted last season, Trisler's first opportunity to run in an important race for the 19th-ranked Hoosiers this weekend at the Roy Griak Invitational. "I am a little nervous, I haven't run in a meet in five years," Trisler said. "This meet is super important. If we win this meet or are in the thick of things some big things will happen." While at DePauw he watched many of the guys he ran against in high school have success at the Division one level.
