One more on the unemployment rolls.

Mike Freitag lost his job as IU Soccer coach. I'll have more to say on it later, but I basically agree with the decision and am also sorry to see him go. He was a good guy, and I will always remember that he was the guy that convinced Yeagley to go to a zone defense and 3-5-2 line-up to open up the offense back in 1994. Strange then, that a faltering offense is what doomed him in the end. Good luck to you, Mike, and thanks for your years of service.

IU hops went down to Maryland, and I don't have a lot to say about it other than the Hoosiers looked like they were every bit as talented as the Terps, but just did not have the composure down the stretch. Indeed, some of the worst shooting displays I've ever seen came late in the second half last night. IU's got a rough schedule coming up, and needs to start figuring things out soon or its going to get ugly.

On the upside, the Big Ten has a real chance at snagging its first challenge win, thanks to surprising road wins by Northwestern and Penn State. It could go either way, but the back half is favorable to the conference for the first time in recent memory. Go Big Ten!
