Congrats, Hoosiers!

Sure, sure, IU Football won a squeaker against Purdue to move from bowl-eligible to bowl-likely, and the Men's Basketball killed Longwood (who was D-II not that long ago) 100-49 (in which the points per possession were again very nice at 1.33, but the defensive points per possession were much improved at 0.65), but the real impressive weekend for Hoosier athletes was the one that the Women's Soccer Team had!

Kristin Arnold must have ice in her veins, as she scored the overtime golden goal against Toledo to send IU into a rematch with Purdue. As I suggested earlier, the IU-PU game was much closer than the 7-0 slaughter that Purdue had just perpetrated upon the Hoosier women, and I expected an OT game. But I didn't expect the Hoosiers to come out on top in PKs. Kristin Arnold netted the game-winning PK, and the Hoosiers move on to the sweet 16!
Congratulations to all the Hoosier athletes this weekend, but in all the hoopla about IU Football getting to a bowl, don't forget to recognize the best post-season performance by a Hoosier women's soccer team to date.

Go Hoosiers!
