Coaching staff grows

Football coach Gerry DiNardo is methodically piecing together a coaching staff that has a local flavor. One of the newest additions to DiNardo's staff is Bloomington South coach Mo Moriarity, who is regarded as one of the top high school coaches in the state. Moriarity joined DiNardo's coaching staff earlier this week along with Al Borges and Steve Addazio.

DiNardo faces challenges with new recruit class

Football coach Gerry DiNardo recruited some big names at LSU. Quarterback Rohan Davey, wide receiver Josh Reed and linebacker Trev Faulk were talented football players who helped LSU claim Sugar Bowl and SEC championship game victories this past season. Every member of the trio should be dressing Sundays next fall, and they all signed their letters-of-intent during DiNardo's tenure.

Cyclists ready for men's Little 500

Let's get one thing straight about Saturday's Men's Little 500: Nobody will lap the field like the Cutters did last year. This year's field is too deep and the riders are too evenly matched for one team to dominate the race. Unlike last year when only a few teams had a chance, a number of teams could take the checkered flag.

Making the transition: Prep coaches join IU's staff

Middle school physical education teacher in the mornings and afternoons. College football coach in the late afternoons and early evenings. That was how Ted Huber spent his long work days in the early 1980s when he served as Lee Corso's defensive ends coach at IU. In 1980, Huber left his job as Bloomington South football coach to join Corso's staff. "I had a secret desire to become a college coach," said Huber, who now coaches centers and guards at Ball State. It's easy to forget Huber once coached at IU. Hundreds of players, dozens of assistants and three head coaches have come and gone since the time Huber and Corso left Bloomington.

Practice pays off in trials

Phi Delta Theta senior Josh Beatty beat three friends to win the most anticipated heat of the 2001 Little 500 men's individual time trials. He also beat everybody else. Beatty won Wednesday's individual time trials at Bill Armstrong Stadium with a time of 2:29.87. Beatty's heat, which was contested at 7:20 p.m., featured four of the event's top riders.

Final series event today

Each Little 500 series event determines something different about the riders and teams. Individual time trials determines the fastest riders. Miss-N-Out decides the top pack riders.

Cyclists prepare for time trials

Qualifications are finished and Little 500 weekend is 23 days away, but that doesn't mean the pre-race competition is on hold. Men's and women's individual time trials, one of the three spring series events, will be contested from 4 to 9:45 p.m. Wednesday at Bill Armstrong Stadium. "I think the series events are cool," Sigma Alpha Epsilon junior Dan Burns said. "They are something that gets people enthusiastic about the race and build spirit."

Series event scheduled for Saturday

Sigma Alpha Epsilon junior Dan Burns made his intentions clear for this weekend's Miss-N-Out just moments after losing to Phi Delta Theta senior Josh Beatty in Wednesday's individual time trials.

Phi Gamma Delta positioned on pole, ready for race

Row 1 is filled with tradition. Phi Gamma Delta and Delta Chi are two of the all-time top teams. Delta Chi won 7 of 10 races in the 1970s and early 1980s, and Fiji hasn't finished out of the top five since 1993. Sigma Phi Epsilon, the other team in the row, has developed a solid program in recent years and was the last greek team to win the race. Sigma Phi Epsilon edged Fiji to win the 1999 Little 500.

Qualifications plagued by harsh conditions

Conditions were ideal during last year's Little 500 qualifications. Temperatures were in the mid 70s, and the wind was almost non-existent. This year, conditions weren't as friendly to riders. The temperature never rose above 40 degrees. In the morning the track was wet, but the moisture was not enough to compensate for the dry conditions during the past week. The track was loose by the afternoon and wind was a factor during the whole day.
