It’s Friday and there’s college football tomorrow, which makes it a great day in our book. We’ve got some good reads for you going into the weekend from Virginia Cavaliers football making headlines ahead of the IU game to the coaching staff making a recruiting trip in no small part just to get a good meal. Take a look and get pumped for the ‘Hoos first road game of the season! If you’re in Indiana on Saturday, you might see a familiar face in the stands (cough, Kyle Guy, cough).
Mike Barber churning out some clutch content this week — here he talks with the Indianapolis Star’s IU beat writer, Zach Osterman ahead of the team’s trip to Bloomington. Osterman answered “four downs worth of questions about Indiana” for Barber. He talks IU’s QB situation, their defense vs. UVA’s offense, and what the loss of RB Cole Gest means for the Hoosiers ahead of Bronco Mendenhall’s first road game of 2018.
Ryan Nelson, a redshirt freshman, is now starting for the Virginia Cavaliers at left tackle. Virginia’s coaching staff wanted to recruit Nelson because he’s a good football player, of course, but also apparently because his parents are fantastic cooks. Recruiting trips meant a chance at an unforgettable meal, something the staff wasn’t shy about admitting. Read more in Barber’s piece.
The ladies are at it again with back-to-back 5+ goal games, this time shutting out Liberty by a whopping 6-0 final score. The Hoos are in a good spot but will be facing a tough road challenge as they travel up to Penn State on Sunday, a team ranked No. 11 now but has been ranked as high as fifth in the country.
Indiana native Kyle Guy will be making a trip back home to cheer on the ‘Hoos in Bloomington this weekend as the team takes on the Indiana Hoosiers.
