Indiana transfer Hoetzel commits to San Diego State

Indiana transfer Max Hoetzel has committed to San Diego State, per his father. “I think in the end, it’s about the relationships you have," Max Sr. said. "I think we have a very good rapport with San Diego State. We have known the coaching staff – which hasn’t changed at all here – for quite a while.

IU running backs coach Deland McCullough laughs when he recalls his first memory of Tevin Coleman. On a dreary day, McCullough flew into town to watch in person Coleman, a scintillating prospect.

Covering the Next Dynasty

Mark Schlabach’s first newspaper job came when he was just nine years old, in the small town of Culver, Ind., where he grew up. Schlabach worked as a delivery boy for the South Bend Tribune for about three years. On Sunday’s, this proved to be a bit of a problem for subscribers who wanted their papers.

Every Given Sunday

The first thing you notice about Curt Menefee is his voice. It’s the same voice that’s hosted FOX NFL Sunday since 2006. It’s the voice that has called preseason NFL games, the voice that has called UFC fights. Yes, that voice. The first time I heard the voice in person I was standing at the security desk in the lobby of the freshly painted FOX Sports 1 studio in Los Angeles, only a few minutes before our meeting to interview the iconic broadcaster.

Won in the paint

With his back facing Lee, Kaminsky leaped with both hands in the air, hoping to grab the ball rather than swat.

Moore and Freeman, ’99 UConn champs, back at Final Four

Ricky Moore and Kevin Freeman are sitting in a quiet room near the dressing room assigned to the University of Connecticut men’s basketball team at the Final Four. Dressed in sleek UConn zip ups and grey sweatpants, Moore and Freeman both look the part of the different roles they have taken on. They have returned to the campus where they once helped the Huskies achieve a championship pedigree.

Smith moves on from IU basketball

Raphael Smith thinks the rumors are funny. He has heard he’s playing basketball overseas, has transferred, has dropped out and even that he has been arrested. “It’s more funny than anything,” Smith said. “It’s just kinda like, ‘No, I’m still here.’”. Smith spent more than two seasons on the IU men’s basketball team as a walk-on.

John Bauernfeind

I have a bachelor's degree in journalism from Indiana University. I am currently an intern for Inside Indiana, where I cover IU football and basketball for its website and monthly magazine. This past summer, I interned with the Indianapolis Indians - the Triple-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates - producing content for the team’s website and blog. I also wrote recaps of home games and conducted interviews with players, coaches and local media. From 2012-14, I worked for the Indiana Daily Student. In the fall of 2013, I was one of two sports editors, managing and organizing the school’s sports scene through articles I wrote and edited. I was also the beat writer for the men and women’s basketball teams. My experiences at the IDS led me to Dallas, TX, last April, where I covered the 2014 NCAA Men’s Final Four for Along with a graduate student, I got to cover one of two Final Four games and the Championship game, while also writing feature articles throughout the week. Two summers ago I interned with the Columbus Republic, writing local and regional sports articles.
