    ‘Friendly Fire’ puts the Colts on early hot seat after loss

    INDIANAPOLIS – For a half, they were the team they were all cracked up to be. They had a spiced-up offensive attack that utilized a number of formations and personnel at unique positions. The Colts rushing attack looked as if it was indeed ready to attack and the defense was making timely plays in the first half and not the final moments. Take a picture of the the first half the Colts had against the Eagles and what you have […]

    Eagles beat the Colts 30-27 on a late field goal

    INDIANAPOLIS – The home team was in a hurry because they wanted redemption from an opening week effort they’d like the forget. Meanwhile their opponent came into the game in a hurry because, well, they’re always in a hurry. These were the crossing storylines in the Colts home opener on Monday night at Lucas Oil Stadium, the first early week game in Indianapolis in almost four years. Philadelphia’s quick offense came to face a Colts team off a less-than-desired but […]

    ARE YOU READY? Colts open home schedule on Monday night

    INDIANAPOLIS – While it may not have the same zest and anticipation as it might have had in the days of Frank, Don and Howard, there is something about football under the lights early in the work week. It’s even better when that Monday Night Football contest is your first game at home. “Yeah, it’s always a nice buzz for a Monday night game, especially because it’s the home opener,” said quarterback Andrew Luck, who will lead the Colts against […]

    Home football game gives Franklin College a chance to tell Nick Schultz’s story

    FRANKLIN – There is no college course quite as tough as the one which many are going through at a college about 20 miles south of Indianapolis. But it’s one that Kerry Prather has watched student reluctantly take over the past week. “Being a teaching institution we feel like everything that happens has a teachable moment to it,” said the Franklin College athletic director–and that moment came on Sept. 5. While checking out a call for an evicted tenant who […]

    Carpenter, Newgarden look forward to 2015 and weekend karting events

    INDIANAPOLIS – Once competitors, now teammates. That’s a pretty typical storyline in most racing series, especially in the Verizon IndyCar Series where turnover is commonplace. But for Ed Carpenter and Josef Newgarden their partnership is one that’s a bit unique. With the combination of Carpenter and Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing for the upcoming season, Newgarden joins the driver stable of the team along with road course specialist Mike Conway. It’s makes for a busy offseason for both drivers as they […]


    Not having Robert Mathis around a change for Colts’ Reggie Wayne

    INDIANAPOLIS – When they say no contact, they mean no contact. Not at the Colts complex, Lucas Oil Stadium, or even right next door. That last one is for Reggie Wayne. “He’s my neighbor. Not my neighbor around the corner, right next door,” said the Colts receiver of Robert Mathis, who has been suspended by the league four games for violation of their performance enhancers policy. “So how does that work?” Well, remember that old saying when it came to […]

  • Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson eludes Purdue defenders during the Irish' 30-14 victory.

    For one last time, underdog Purdue competes but Notre Dame wins

    INDIANAPOLIS – Surely it wouldn’t come down to a similar scenario again. Surely. Last week Purdue was pretty much dominated by Mid-American Conference opponent Central Michigan on their home field by 21 points. The Boilermakers didn’t even lead. Meanwhile Notre Dame decimated Michigan in their final meeting in the current series at home the likes which hadn’t been seen in the history of their 42-game series. No, it seemed like this would be the year the Irish would take care […]

    The Friday Night Blitz for Week 4: Battle of Bloomington goes to South

    BLOOMINGTON –  For the past three years, the football power in Bloomington has belonged at the high school at the north end of town. Not since 2010 and not in the time which Mo Moriarity has been the coach have the Panthers been able to claim bragging rights in their hometown. We’ll that changed on Friday night-and it changed quickly. South used two quick first quarter touchdowns to jump out to a lead on the Cougars they would not relinquish, […]

    McAlister’s SPUD-tacular Play of the Week candidates for September 12th

    INDIANAPOLIS – Finally it feels like football weather in Central Indiana. Temperatures cooled off into the 50’s on Friday night as teams took the field for the fourth week of the high school football season. While the temps went down the number of big plays continue to go up, but as always only two can be worthy of having the chance to be called SPUD-tacular. For the fourth straight week Fox 59 sports is awarding the McAlister’s SPUD-tacular Play of […]

  • Chandler Barnes win the SPUD-tacular Play of the Week for September 5th

    INDIANAPOLIS – Once again the people have spoken – and they did so with a Hawk in mind. During the third week of voting for the McAlister’s SPUD-tacular Play of the Week award for the high school action on September 5th, Chandler Barnes made a great play not only to catch a deep pass against Whiteland, but then to put on a move to get to the end zone. It helped the Hawks beat the Warriors and also propelled Barnes […]
