Randle El will QB once again

·

Coach Cam Cameron has probably said it to himself 100 times the past two weeks. And Saturday night, after IU's 28-26 loss to Utah, he said it publicly for the first time. Has there ever been a more obvious decision in the history of the game? Apparently not.

Cardinals shut out in high-scoring game

·

After struggling to score only three goals in its first four games, the IU men's soccer team was looking for a breakout game. The Hoosiers might have found one Thursday night in Louisville. IU (3-2-0), eclipsed its total goal output for the season by pouring in four goals and shutting out the Cardinals, 4-0.

IU makes few changes to security

·

Notre Dame consulted with the FBI and canceled Friday night stadium tours. Police will check the seating and concourse areas with dogs before Purdue plays the Fighting Irish Saturday. But at IU, normal security will be in effect for IU's 4 p.m. game against Utah Saturday. Following the terrorist attacks on the United States, sporting venues across the country have beefed up security. IU has made few changes in its regular security routine.

Team travels to face Michigan, UMass

·

Coming off a hard-fought performance of the season against Stanford more than a week ago, the field hockey team looks to get its first win of the season as it travels to Ann Arbor, Mich. The Hoosiers will battle No. 4 Michigan Sunday in their first Big Ten conference game of the season. Prior to meeting the Wolverines, the Hoosiers will face off against the Massachusetts Minutemen Saturday in a non-conference match-up.

Hoosiers prepared for Big Ten play

·

The Big Ten season starts tonight for the volleyball team, and it said it is psyched and prepared to show what it's made of. Having the last four games postponed has not hurt the team's readiness to play. In fact, coach Katie Weismiller said the team has become better prepared for the two important games this weekend.

Games promise excitement

·

As the baseball season reaches its twilight, the pieces are starting to fall in place. The excitement of the division races is slowly giving way to reality, and the playoff image is becoming much clearer.

Hoosiers open 2001 season at Northern Invitational

·

The Hoosiers will finally start their season this weekend in Champaign, Ill., at the Northern Invitational. Their original opening tournament, the Mary Fossum Invitational, was postponed in the wake of terrorist attacks on the United States. Head coach Sam Carmichael will fill out his lineup with sophomore Karen Dennison in the top spot, followed by fellow sophomores Mary Lidester and Danah Ford, junior Cara Stuckey and senior captain Tiffany Fisher. Sophomore Ambry Bishop will travel with the team to compete as an individual.

Illinois connection gives an edge

·

Looking down the field hockey roster, one might notice something missing from the lineup. There is not a single player on the team from the state of Indiana. The field hockey team is one of only two varsity sports teams that do not have a homegrown competitor on the squad. But it does boast eight players from neighboring Illinois on its roster of 22.

Hoosiers head to Louisville

·

This week, as America has attempted to return to some semblemce of normal routine, athletes have returned to the playing fields. The men's soccer team will resume their schedule Thursday as they head to the University of Louisville. Head Coach Jerry Yeagley said the fact that many people are trying to get on with their lives, in spite of last week's tragedy, makes an important statement.

Cyclist brings home jerseys

·

When junior Jenn Wangerin first arrived at IU, she had no idea what the Little 500 was. She used a rented bike, didn't know much about competitive cycling and was only in it for the recreation. Less than a year later, she was celebrating a Little 500 championship with her team, the Roadrunners. Wangerin now has her own bike and a name recognized in the cycling world. She recently brought home four national championship jerseys from the Collegiate Track Finals at the Major Taylor Velodome in Indianapolis.

The women's volleyball team had few problems holding its ground Tuesday against Indiana State University.

Sophomore and outside hitter Nikki Hill recorded 13 kills in three games.

Dennison develops her game

·

A sophomore this year, Karen Dennison has already logged valuable playing experience on her collegiate resume for the women's golf team. Dennison played in 20 rounds, registering a 78.5 stroke average while garnering three top-25 finishes as a true freshman. Now, with the new season opening this weekend in Champaign, Ill., at the Northern Invitational, Dennison looks to begin another successful season.

Overcoming adversity to start training

·

As the women's cross country team practices, senior Stephanie Magley can only watch. She attends the practices, but only to help time the other athletes. She said she wishes she could be out there running, but for now, she will have to wait. This was going to be Magley's senior year as a member of the cross country and track teams. A car crash with a semi changed all that. She said she's lucky to be alive.

Sophomore says being loud, 'crazy' comes with being a goalie

·

Four games into the regular season and the only side effects sophomore goalkeeper Shaunna Daugherty has experienced are a couple of sore throats. Being a loudmouth is a part of the job description for being a goalkeeper. And being vocal on the field is something at which Daugherty excels. "It can take a number on your voice after games," Daugherty said. "You got to be talking continuously."

Teammate brings unique trait to team

·

Sophomore Melissa Brewer said it was easy to chose where she would attend college. She has always lived in Bloomington and said she plans to spend the rest of her life here. The 6'1" middle blocker said she loves her hometown. That was the deciding factor in where she would attend college. "Pretty much, if they offered me a spot on the team, I was coming here," Brewer said, "I didn't even look at any other schools. I just left it up to IU." Brewer said she noticed a major difference between playing for Bloomington North High School and playing as a Hoosier.

Men's team focuses on tragedy

·

The men's cross country meet scheduled for today at Purdue has been suspended out of respect for those who lost their lives in terrorist acts that have shaken the country to its foundation. The Indiana Intercollegiate meet was canceled along with all other Indiana athletic events this weekend. It follows the precedent set by Major League Baseball and other colleges around the country. Coach Robert Chapman referred his comment to the official IU athletic department press release.

Invitational postponed

·

The women's golf team had high hopes for their season debut at the Mary Fossum Invitational this weekend in East Lansing, Michigan. But in the aftermath of Tuesday's national tragedy and the wake of IU's across-the-board cancellation of all weekend athletic events, those hopes -- at least temporarily -- have been put on hold. "We're really wanting to play, because we've worked hard and it's time to go out there and see how we compare to other teams," junior Cara Stuckey said prior to the athletic department's decision. "We're ready to play, but if it does get canceled, we'll just move on to the next tournament."

Filling stadiums not an easy task

·

Last season, in her effort to snatch tickets to a football game, a North Carolina State student ended up in the hospital. Bumps, scrapes and bruises all for a seat in Carter-Finley Stadium. David Lovell wishes he had the same problem. Lovell, the director of marketing and promotions for IU athletics, has a job that doesn't carry much glamour. At least each fall. Lovell heads the effort to fill Memorial Stadium, a 52,180-seat football facility that averaged a crowd of 30,639 fans per game last season, the lowest season-long average since 1964.
