Banner # 4 – NCAA Announces Rule Changes

This week, the NCAA announced several new rules regarding the modernization track. The NCAA says “the new process allows for faster changes to outdated and unnecessary rules.”

The most notable information to come out of this is the extension of the authorization of the men’s and women’s basketball programs to up to two non-coaching staff to perform coaching duties during on-court activities until. to the 2021-2022 sports season due to COVID. However, the positions must have existed as of August 1 of last month.

Banner # 5 – Soccer Falls Into Showdown With Cincinnati

IU had their most anticipated football game in many years against the Bearcats. However, despite a sold-out crowd and a strong start, the Hoosiers were left with several crucial turnovers in the red zone and fell 38-24. Starting quarterback Michael Penix continues to struggle and was x-rayed after the game, but no further information has been given about a potential injury.

UI is now 1-2 on the year and a full recap of the game can be read here.

Banner # 6 – Hoosier Roundup

It has been a struggle so far for all UI sports this semester except men’s golf and women’s football as several disappointing results have occurred this week.

• Women’s soccer was the bright spot for IU sports this fall and beat Kansas State 3-0 this week to end the non-conference game with a strong 6-1-1. They also had a few Big Ten awarded players.

• Men’s golf is fourth in its tournament with one day remaining, having finished in a solid third place in its opening tournament.

• Daniel Munie was named defensive player of the week for men’s soccer. However, the team fell in their first Big Ten game against Rutgers. They have a disappointing 3-2-1 to start the season despite arriving at the national championship after almost the entire squad returned from last year’s College Cup squad.

• Volleyball beat Alabama A + M but then fell to Chicago State and Ole Miss to end a disappointing non-conference season at 6-6.

• Women’s golf finished 14th out of 16 teams in their season opener.

• Field hockey fell to Iowa to open the Big Ten.
