Spring Football and Spring Sports

The Curt Cignetti era of Indiana football is officially underway in Bloomington. The Hoosiers held their first practice last Thursday as Cignetti and his staff install their offense, defense, and culture. The pace and efficiency of the practices are a harbinger of what this new staff wants to do philosophically.

Several position battles begin this spring, none more important than quarterback. Tayven Jackson and Broc Lowery stayed after Tom Allen's departure, while Alex Cherry committed to the program out of high school and Kurtis Rourke transferred from Ohio. Indiana's spring game is scheduled for April 18th.

Spring Sports Whip Around
