A slew of updates from the past few days in Indiana University news. Hoosiers-United coming in hot with news covering a variety of topics across Indiana University Athletics.
Indiana Men’s Soccer has earned at least a share of the BigTen title this season, with a draw between Michigan and Michigan State last night. All Indiana has to do is win/draw against Ohio State in their next matchup to win the title outright. It is IU’s 15th conference title in 28 years of BigTen play. Your Indiana Men’s soccer program has won over 50% of the conference’s titles. That stat alone is truly amazing. A dominant program looking for it’s 9th national title as well. Stay tuned as I expect a deep run in the College Cup for these Hoosiers. Also with the result, the program has secured the #1 seed in the BigTen tournament. Sticking with the soccer program, Griffin Dorsey and Justin Rennicks were named to the USA U-20 National Team that will compete in next month’s CONCACAF Cup. Truly a big honor for two of Indiana’s best players. There were only four college players announced to the team. Indiana has two of them. Do you, Indiana Soccer.
It was announced yesterday that Romeo Langford was the second winner of the daunted gold practice jersey. If you remember, when Juwan Morgan won the jersey, Langford let him know he didn’t like losing and he was going to be determined to win that jersey. Well, he did what he said he would do. Two of Indiana’s best players being so competitive and going at each other in this nature should make you feel good, Indiana fans.
Sticking with basketball, the NCAA March Madness social media account is running a National Player of the Year vote. Juwan Morgan is in the finals against Grant Williams from Tennessee. Indiana has the most powerful fan base in all of college basketball, so let’s make sure Juwan finishes on top.

Morgan Ellison who was recently dismissed from the Indiana Football program due to sexual assault allegations, released a song on iTunes. It’s the first public appearance if you will from the former running back. Ellison was suspended from Indiana University for 2 ½ years and his appeal of the decision was denied. You can listen to that song here on iTunes.
