Little 500 platform for IUSF scholarship fundraising FROM IDS REPORTS
Little 500 is fast approaching, and while the main event remains the largest collegiate bike race in the nation, this coming weekend is also an important one for fundraising for student scholarships at IU. This year’s theme is “Helping Students Reach the Finish Line.” The annual race began in 1951 with the sole purpose of raising scholarship money for students trying to get through college, according to the IU Student Foundation website. The first race was held at the old Tenth Street Stadium and was attended by 7,000 people. Now, more than 20,000 people attend the races annually, according to a IU press release Thursday. The IU Student Foundation, which raises the money for scholarships, sponsors campus events that build enthusiasm and leadership, raises scholarship money for working students and works to forge a bond between students and IU, according to its website. Last year, the Foundation awarded about $177,000 in scholarships and grants. In all, it has awarded more than $1.5 million in conjunction with the Little 500 races. “The organization strives to grow lifetime commitment to and support for Indiana University through programming and leadership development opportunities that are SEE SCHOLARSHIPS, PAGE 6

Smokin’ the Spartans Hoosiers complete third conference sweep of season BY EVAN HOOPFER email@example.com @EvanHoopfer
Michigan State elected to intentionally walk preseason All-American Kyle Schwarber, which brought preseason AllAmerican Sam Travis up to bat. The finale of the three-game series was tied at 1-1 in the bottom of the eighth. Runners stood on first and second with one out for Travis. With a win, IU would complete the sweep of Michigan State. “It’s always a sign of disrespect when they walk someone to get to you,” Travis said after the game. He smoked a first pitch curve ball to deep left-center field. Rodrigue scored easily from second and Schwarber hustled
around the base path to score from first. Another eighth inning RBI by designated hitter Scott Donley gave IU a three-run cushion going into the ninth. Junior reliever Luke Harrison closed out for a win for IU (25-11, 11-1) to beat Michigan State (20-17, 5-7) Sunday 4-1. The win gave the Hoosiers their third sweep of a conference foe this year. In their last 14 games, the Hoosiers are 13-1. And this latest sweep meant something extra for IU — last season Michigan State swept IU in three one-run games. “It’s a great rivalry,” said second baseman Casey Rodrigue, who scored the goahead run in the eighth inning. “Dating back to last year, all the games have been close.” For the past week, the IU offense has
cooled down and had trouble manufacturing runs. Coming into the weekend, IU was averaging 5.6 runs a game. But during the three games against Michigan State, the Hoosiers averaged just 4.3 runs a game. That was in part due to the Spartan pitching staff. Michigan State’s three starters were the best trio of pitchers the Hoosiers have faced all year, Travis said. That meant the pitching had to step up. And it did. In the last 41 innings, dating back to the last inning against Morehead State April 13, IU pitchers have given up just two runs, giving Hoosier pitchers an ERA of 0.44 in that span. “Michigan State’s pitching staff I thought SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 6

IU secured its fourth commitment for its 2014 basketball recruiting class Friday when center Jeremiah April announced on Twitter his intentions to become a Hoosier. April, who is listed as a 7-foot, 230-pound, two-star center prospect by Verbal Commits, played for Westwind Preparatory Academy after attending high school at Glendale Joy Christian in Arizona. His coach, Jai Steadman, told several media outlets that the center averaged 19 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks last season. April will join James Blackmon Jr., Robert Johnson and Max Hoetzel as part of IU’s freshman class next season. The Hoosiers have two available scholarships at their disposal to sign additional recruits or transfer players this offseason. Andy Wittry
State of the Bloomington economy report released FROM IDS REPORTS
The Bloomington Economic Development Corporation presented the fourth-annual “State of the Bloomington Regional Economy” report last week at the Bloomington-Monroe County Convention Center. The BEDC is a nonprofit, public-private partnership dedicated to the development of quality jobs in Monroe County, according to a press release. A meeting was organized Wednesday to present the data to almost 200 attendees at the convention center. The report highlighted developments across Monroe County.
It included updates on Bloomington’s Certified Technology Park, which encompasses 65 acres of downtown and is home to several technology companies. The City of Bloomington currently owns 12 of those acres. A redevelopment plan for the technology park aims to attract technology jobs and enhance public amenities such as green space. The state awards CTP designation to communities that are partnering with a research institution and that meet certain criteria. These criteria include a commitment from a technology business to create jobs in the park and the existence of a business incubator, according to
bloomington.in.gov. The report also noted that the number of downtown businesses has increased 30 percent in the past 15 years, and the local per capita income is up 4 percent since 2010, according to the release. In 2012-13 17 businesses expanded, 128 opened and 87 closed in downtown Bloomington, according to the report. There are 906 businesses for a total of 13,100 employees working in the downtown area, according to the report. The report noted the city and county government are two large employers. Downtown includes the area
between the boundaries of Second Street, Indiana Avenue, 11th Street and Rogers Street, according to the report. The report also showed $45 million in private money was invested in downtown Bloomington in 2013-14 and that tourism grew by 16 percent from 2009 to 2013. Existing home sales in Bloomington were up 9.3 percent in 2013, the report said. It noted that foreclosure rates in Monroe, Greene and Owen counties have improved for a rate of 1 in 8,000 in February 2014. Indiana had a rate of 1 in 1,000 for the same month. Rebecca Kimberly

Slut Walk brings attention to rape culture A national movement calling for an end to rape culture is coming to IU today. The goal of this event, called Slut Walk, is to empower women, encourage them to wear whatever they want and underline the
fact that rapists, not victims, are at fault for rape. The event will start at 6 p.m. in Dunn Meadow, where there will be poster-making activities and speakers prior to the march.
Festival brings Asian culture to community BY SUZANNE GROSSMAN firstname.lastname@example.org
City Hall took a trip to Asia this Saturday without ever leaving its front lawn. Asianfest is an annual event sponsored by the Asian Cultural Center and the City of Bloomington to celebrate and embrace Asian culture city-wide, ACC Student Outreach Coordinator Sarah Moon said. “This is our biggest event for the community,” Moon said. “All ACC events are open to community members, but they often think it’s just for students. I like this event because it brings the campus and community all together.” It goes to show how active the Asian and AsianAmerican community is in Bloomington, she added. “I think it’s important for our community to see how many Asian cultures there are even in Indiana,” Moon said. “Asian cultures are really important and vibrant in Bloomington. We have so many countries represented, not just at the college, but in the community.” Moon said she hopes by sponsoring a community culture event, students will feel more welcome in the city. “Showing the different cultures in the city shows even students are a part of this community and can branch out of just campus life,” she said. Asianfest consisted of 11 cultural performances, including classical Indian dance, Japanese folk songs and Chinese music performed by children from the TianTian Chinese Weekend School. The event also included two cooking demos, during which cooks taught a
crowd to make Vietnamese stir-fried cellophane noodles and Chinese eggplant in a fragrant fish sauce. “We always have cultural tables, cooking demos and cultural performances, but the performances always change,” Moon said. “It’s really based on what people have to offer.” This year, 13 different tables set up, giving henna tattoos, offering origami lessons and chopstick challenges and teaching people how to write in Chinese and Korean characters. “It’s fun and festive, and people are learning,” Moon said. “But I feel like their learning is more engaging, and it’ll actually stay with them. It’s a neat and fun way for children to get introduced to the culture outside of a classroom.” Xinyi Shen, a graduate student in education at IU, said she appreciated seeing countries other than China represented. “I have never been to another country besides China,” Shen said. “I wanted to know other countries other than China that are Asian. That’s why this is important.” Zhen Zhang, a graduate student in environmental management, said he was happy to see the city interact with Asian cultures. “We live here as students and scholars,” Zhang said. “There are so many of us sharing at the University, but it is good for the local people to know about local Asian culture. Having many different people coming together is very happy.” He said it helped take the edge off of being outside his native country. “Because we are in a foreign country, being able to meet some people in the same situation is a very great thing for us,” he said.

IU Scientists use “I Spy” to show the importance of language for children FROM IDS REPORTS
A thousand words may be worth more than a picture after all, a new study by two IU cognitive scientists suggests. Catarina Vales and Linda Smith led the study that used a series of “I spy” games to determine how language shapes children’s minds, according to an April 17 IU press release. Published last week in the journal, Developmental Science, the study could open new avenues of research into the way language might shape the course of developmental disabilities like ADHD, according to the release. “I spy” games are often used in scientific experiments to study both attention and memory in adults, according to the release. In this experiment, children were asked to look for a particular image among multiple pictures on a computer. For example, a child may have been asked to find a bed amongst a group of couches. “If the name of the target object was also said, the children were much faster
at finding it and less distracted by the other objects in the scene,” said Vales, a graduate student in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, in the release. What the study suggested was language, more than images, is transformative. The spoken word taps into children’s cognitive system and increases their ability to learn and to navigate disorderly environments, according to the release. “What we’ve shown is that in 3-year-old children, words activate memories that then rapidly deploy attention and lead children to find the relevant object in a cluttered array,” said Smith, distinguished professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. “Words call up an idea that is more robust than an image and to which we more rapidly respond. Words have a way of calling up what you know that filters the environment for you.” In the release, Smith said the study is the first clear evidence of the power of language on how children navigate the visual world. It is also the first step toward
understanding the way language affects visual attention, opening up a new hypothesis about the process. Language can transform how people scrutinize the world around them, Vales said in the release. “We also know that language will change the way people perform in a lot of different laboratory tasks,” Vales said. “And if you have a child with ADHD who has a hard time focusing, one of the things parents are told to do is to use words to walk the child through what she needs to do. So there is this notion that words change cognition. The question is ‘how?’” Vales also said their research results show how words assist cognitive processes that affect behavior. “For instance, the difference between search times, with and without naming the target object, indicate a key role for a kind of brief visual memory known as working memory, that helps us remember what we just saw as we look to something new,” Vales said. “Words put ideas in working memory faster than images.” SEE I SPY, PAGE 3

IUSA swears in new executives during banquet BY DANI CASTONZO email@example.com
A new IU Student Association administration was officially sworn in Friday at the IUSA Transition Banquet. Members of the old and incoming IUSA administrations gathered in the Tudor Room of the Indiana Memorial Union to receive awards for the year and honor the outgoing and incoming IUSA members. After dinner was served, senior Jose Mitjavila gave his last speech as student body president to a room full of family members and IUSA friends. “This is my biggest moment at IU,” Mitjavila said. “It’s the thing I’m gonna remember the most.” He highlighted some of his administration’s biggest accomplishments, including additions to the Lifeline Law, the pilot program SafeRide, the transition to year-round Culture of Care advocacy and their push to get recycling bins in every dorm room. “I know the student body is better for it,” Mitjavila said. After one stressful night at the IUSA office, Mitjavila said, he found himself lying on the floor with his head under his desk. Under there, he found a quote from a former IUSA president that said, “You’re the watchdog of students from now until eternity.” Although it was a little embellished, Mitjavila said it made him think about his responsibility as student body president. “You get one year to do this job,” Mitjavila said. “You get one year to represent every student on campus. I realized how important my job was, and it gave me the strength to continue on and push forward because I realized the immense responsibility that I had on my shoulders.”

After Mitjavila spoke, the members of the new administration went to the front of the room and were sworn in. Andy Braden gave his first speech as the official president of IUSA. He spoke about the purpose of IUSA and why IUSA members are passionate about their positions. “IUSA should be a catalyst for change,” Braden said. “It should be a mechanism through which students can see their ideas become real, see their ideal campus experience actualized and ensure students receive the experience that they are paying for.” But he said there are “glaring issues” on campus that he has the opportunity and the responsibility to address. “IUSA has not perfected the campus experience, nor will it ever,” Braden said. “The role is always changing and developing. We must continue to actively engage students to ensure that we are fulfilling our role on campus.” He said he and all the IUSA members are lucky to be in the position they are. Braden cautioned his incoming executive members to be appreciative of that responsibility. “Value and respect the role you play on campus,” he said. “We have the opportunity to actually do something to improve this University.”

school,” Smith said in the release. “These results also suggest the culprit for these difficulties may be language in addition to working memory.” Smith said this study suggests language might also make working memory, or short-term memory, more effective. “Children learn in the real world, and the real world is a cluttered place,” Smith said. “If you don’t

NBA set to increase minimum age to 20 NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced that, with a solid majority of owners behind him, changing the minimum age to play in the league from 19 to 20 will be a top priority.
Silver said the rationale behind the move is to encourage NBA hopefuls to stay in college longer. The push also comes following talks of student-led unionization in college sports.
Symbols of hate are still symbols of hate
Pay attention to SlutWalk
SYDNEY HOFFERTH is a senior majoring in economics.
If you didn’t already know, the United States is the largest jailer in the world. With 2.2 million Americans behind bars, the United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world. PBS’ Frontline documentary “Solitary Nation” will air this week. It focuses on the use of solitary confinement of prisoners in the U.S., a practice that isolates inmates from virtually any human contact for 22-24 hours per day, lasting anywhere from days to decades. According to reports released in 2005, anywhere from 20,000 to 80,000 inmates are held in solitary confinement. The exact number is unknown. Prisoners are sometimes allowed “recreation,” which the Center for Constitutional Rights says “involves being taken, often in handcuffs and shackles, to another solitary cell where prisoners can pace alone for an hour before being returned to their cell.” Solitary confinement is used to protect prisoners and prison guards from especially violent inmates, according to corrections officials. The American Friends Service Committee argues there are other far less compelling reasons to use solitary confinement, including using it as “punishment while (prisoners) are under investigation; as a mechanism for behavior modification; as retribution for political activism; or to fill expensive, empty beds, to name but a few.” As I’m sure you can imagine, the mental consequences of solitary confinement on prisoners is devastating. It is considered to be a form of torture by the international community, and it is a blatant violation of the Eighth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which bans cruel and unusual punishment. Unfortunately, the way the U.S. uses solitary confinement as a casual way to lock prisoners up does not surprise me. But the widespread cynicism towards our criminal justice system should not keep us from rejecting and protesting the flaws within it. It is both hypocritical and perverted that the U.S. uses such a brutal and cruel system to deal with its prisoners, many of whom are mentally ill in the first place and need mental health treatment, not mental torture. I look forward to watching “Solitary Nation.” One man filmed in the preview of the documentary shared his feelings about solitary. “It’s like being buried alive,” he said. “You can’t conduct yourself like a human being when you’re being treated like an animal.” Indeed, if society wants to rehabilitate and change prisoners for the better through the criminal justice system, the use of torture through solitary confinement is the last thing we should be doing. Unless we start treating prisoners like human beings and not like animals, our criminal “justice” system will continue to perpetrate injustice towards the millions of people who are incarcerated, failing both to protect society and to protect these prisoners from torture. email@example.com @squidhoff10

ILLUSTRATION BY GRIFFIN LEEDS | IDS
WE SAY: In 2014, there’s no room for Confederate imagery. The next president of the College of Charleston in South Carolina is a Confederate sympathizer and an advocate for the use of the Confederate flag. Republican Lt. Gov. Glenn McConnell has championed the use of Confederate flags, particularly the well-known battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia. He has furiously led the fight to keep the flag flying above the state’s capitol building. In 2010, a photo of him in the uniform of a Confederate general flanked by two black men dressed to resemble slaves went viral. No matter what your motivation, the use of the Confederate flag is an egregious idea. McConnell and others have defended the flag variously as a connection to their ancestors and a valuable symbol of a struggle for autonomy. They claim the flag doesn’t represent hate, but heritage.
The Editorial Board thinks otherwise. They are wrong. And their ideas belong nowhere near institutions of education. Calling the Civil War a struggle for autonomy is a poor characterization. There is inherent hypocrisy in the idea of struggling for the autonomy to deny other humans their autonomy. The Civil War is and always will be a symbol of that goal of oppression, no matter what it may mean to you personally. Defending your use of a symbol by claiming it means something different to you than to society at large confuses the idea of a symbol. Symbols, by definition, are not purely personal. They are used to communicate ideas, thoughts and opinions quickly and efficiently. When you use a symbol, you are indicating that you wish to be associated with
what that symbol represents to those who see it. If that represents something else to those who see your symbol, it doesn’t mean your culture is suffering from a genocide, as McConnell has claimed. It means you’ve simply chosen a poor symbol. And the Confederate flag has consistently been used as a symbol of hate. During the 1950s and ’60s, Southern governors would display the flag as an act of defiance in the face of integration efforts, the very same flag proudly displayed at lynchings and cross burnings across the South. That symbol hasn’t lost its meaning, even in 2014. In February, three University of Mississippi fraternity members were found responsible for hanging a noose and a pre-2003 Georgia state flag with a Confederate emblem on the statue of civil rights hero James Meredith.
Meredith, the university’s first black student, was admitted only after President John F. Kennedy ordered hundreds of federal marshals to escort him onto its campus. If Southerners like McConnell feel such a need to connect with their equally problematic heritage without endorsing hate, they have chosen the wrong symbol. They don’t have a right to choose whatever symbol they want and simultaneously redefine its entire historical context. Despite unanimous votes of no confidence by both the student government and the faculty council of the College of Charleston, the board of trustees — who appointed McConnell — has stood behind its decision so far. Moving forward, we can only hope they reconsider. firstname.lastname@example.org @ids_opinion
WALK THE LINE
Being more ‘unselfconscious’ Every time I go on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, I’m reminded we live in a time where we think everyone wants to look at pictures of ourselves. All the time. I had the amazing opportunity to see Meryl Streep receive an honorary doctorate Wednesday at the IU Auditorium. Other than the fact that Meryl is perfect in every way — and yes, we’re on firstname basis now — the biggest thing I took away from her talk was when she spoke of being “unselfconscious.” Streep will appear in the upcoming movie “Suffragette” portraying Emmeline Pankhurst, a real-life figure in Britain’s women’s suffrage movement. There is only one video that exists of this woman, because that’s how rare that sort of media was at the time. She was unaware of how her movements looked or how she appeared to other people
because she didn’t really need to be. Unlike us, Pankhurst was not used to her “outer performance.” This is one of the major issues with constantly taking selfies. We’re so focused and legtimately concerned about how we’re perceived on Facebook or Instagram that it’s actually affecting us. I’m part of the social media generation, and I’ve looked at way too many pictures of myself. I’ve also learned the eating and showering habits of way too many people. Yet I’ve also heard the argument that selfies, social media and technology are ruining the world. And I think it’s an exaggeration. Sure, teenagers have always been narcissistic. Now they just have a better way of expressing it. However, there is a major difference between Emmeline Pankhurst’s generation and ours. Rather than being consumed by trying to find
their best angle, they used their time to do other things. Like, you know, political activism. Instead, we’re preoccupied with the selfie you take alone in your bedroom, where you can try dozens of different angles until you find the “Just woke up! #nomakeup” picture to post. The obsession with appearances is a problem for everyone in the age of oversharing, but it also has other consquences. Often it becomes a bigger problem for young girls, who already are taught a very specific standard and expectation for beauty. That’s where girls’ obsession with the “best angle” comes from, how girls learn to take the picture from above to eliminate a double chin or how to tilt their heads to make their cheeks look thinner. There is something sad in the fact that we’ve all lost a sense of “unselfconsciousness.” That we’ve had to look at

way too many pictures of ourselves so we do know about bad angles, bad lighting, bad poses. For young people especially, it’s just another way to feel self-conscious. As we get older, it’s just another way to hold onto our obsession with ourselves. I want to go back to a time when we didn’t know or care what we looked like to other people. I wish that we could give up selfies and constant documentation for this kind of peace. I wonder what we would look like if we knew no one was watching. Or Instagramming. email@example.com @cjellert

One of five college women will be sexually assaulted, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. This means that, statistically, about 745 women in the IU Class of 2017 will be victims of sexual assault. Besides being an absolutely abhorrent snapshot of college life in the United States, this raises an important question. If, statistically, about 745 women in each graduating class will be victims of sexual assault, why have only about 120 sexual assaults been reported at IU from 2010 to 2012? The fact is that many cases will go unreported to authorities because of victim blaming. On January 24th, 2011, a Toronto police officer, in response to rapes in Toronto, stated, “Women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized.” From this statement sprung the Toronto “SlutWalk,” a parade meant to protest the victim-blaming and slut-shaming that plague victims of sexual assault. Since then, SlutWalks have sprung up across the world, with one even in Bloomington happening each year. Protestors march with signs saying things such as “I’m not asking for it” and “Society Teaches Don’t Get Raped Instead Of Don’t Rape.” And what really makes an event like the SlutWalk so important is that it brings attention to the issue of sexual assault and how victims are not to blame. Unfortunately, with any good cause comes those who feel the need to attack victims. On the Bloomington SlutWalk event page, a supposed member of the Traditionalist Youth Network, IU’s favorite hate-mongering student group, attacked the idea of SlutWalks in general. The man stated multiple times that though he doesn’t support rape culture, he thinks slut culture is also a problem. A member of the event said the man encouraged members of the SlutWalk to “put some clothes on, go to church, find a chivalrous man, have a family and stop being sluts.” He made it clear that TradYouth thinks a return to traditional gender roles of women being subservient to men will end rape culture. And it should bring to light that some people just don’t understand sexual assault. Victims of sexual assault have the autonomy of their bodies forcibly taken from them. These victims are assaulted, they lose their sense of dignity and then are often blamed for it. SlutWalks aren’t designed to glorify dressing or acting in a certain way. They’re designed to show that rape shouldn’t occur under any circumstance, regardless of the dress or behavior of the victim. TradYouth plans on protesting the SlutWalk in Dunn Meadow, and I pray they find the true meaning behind SlutWalks and accept it. After all, we don’t blame pedophilia on the way little girls dress, so we shouldn’t blame rape on the way women dress. Period. firstname.lastname@example.org

Purdue will not raise minimum wage Purdue University announced it has no plans to raise its minimum wage following a statement from IU pledging to raise its minimum wage to $8.25 per hour. Purdue President Mitch Daniels said
raising the wage could take jobs away from employees at the university, according to an Indiana Public Media report. IU’s wage increase, $1 above the federal minimum wage, will take effect July 1.
Pence’s travels lead to German investment invest $1.9 million in South Bend, creating 30 jobs there. Jäger Group, which supplies rubber, plastics and metal components, will expand to La Porte, Ind., investing $4.5 million and creating about 50 jobs. “When selecting a location for growth, company executives often narrow down their choices based on what they know, so trips like this are designed to make sure they know Indiana,” Pence said in a release. Representatives from Pence’s office and the IEDC could not be reached for comment due to the state government’s closure Friday in observance of Good Friday. This is Pence’s second foreign trip since being sworn in as governor in January 2013. He led a delegation to Japan in September along with the IEDC. Gov. Mitch Daniels, Pence’s predecessor, led several trips of this kind as well. “After traveling across Germany this week, I feel a rush of excitement for the future of Indiana,” Pence said. “Germany appreciates the uniquely Hoosier talent of developing and building the products that drive growth and spark innovation.”

ISP to collect, dispose of prescription medications FROM IDS REPORTS
The Indiana State Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration will provide the opportunity to dispose of medications 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at any State Police Post in Indiana. The Bloomington State Police Post is located at 1500 N. Packinghouse Road. This is the eighth time in the past three years the ISP
and the DEA have given the public an opportunity to rid their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs, according to a press release from the ISP. The service is free, anonymous and no questions asked. The collection is intended for liquid and pill medications only. New or used needles will
not be accepted. At the last collection in October 2013, ISP collected 1,451 pounds of drugs. The DEA collected 324 tons of prescription drugs nationwide, according to the release. Medicines that sit unused in home cabinets are likely to be misused or abused, the release said. According to the Office of the Attorney General, 654
Hoosiers died from accidental drug overdoses in 2010. Seven million Americans currently abuse prescription drugs. Studies show that in the majority of instances of prescription drug abuse. Drugs were obtained from family and friends, according to the release. M.K. Wildeman
State unemployment rate falls below 6 percent, ﬁrst time since 2008 FROM IDS REPORTS
At 5.9 percent, Indiana’s unemployment rate is below 6 percent for the first time since 2008, according to a report from the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. Indiana’s rate has dropped 2 percent in the last year. A year ago in March 2013, the rate was 7.9 percent. This 2-percent drop is the third-largest difference of any state in the country during the last year. Data from the Bureau of Labor shows the unemployment rate declined by about 0.2 percentage points in March. The DWD reported this decline in unemployment is because of a growth in private sector jobs. Indiana added 3,200
private sector jobs in March, surpassing 25,000 for job creation during the first quarter of 2014 alone. March was the sixthconsecutive month the labor force in Indiana increased. Scott B. Sanders, commissioner of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, called the growth “remarkable.” Sanders also reported claims for state unemployment insurance last month were nearly 10,000 below levels in March last year. Claims for unemployment insurance are at their lowest since 2000, according to the DWD report. Indiana’s unemployment rate is markedly lower than the federal rate, which is 6.7 percent. M.K. Wildeman

Corman speaks at IU Cinema about 40 years of filmmaking FROM IDS REPORTS

Junior Casey Rodrigue bumps fists with junior Will Nolden during IU’s game against Michigan State Friday at Bart Kaufman Field. The Hoosiers won all three games of the series.
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 was outstanding,” IU Coach Tracy Smith said. “Ours was equally good ... I thought that was two quality pitching staffs going at it.” The latest in the recent trend of great Hoosier pitching came in the form of Brian Korte. The senior got the start on just three days rest, after a throwing against Western Kentucky last Wednesday. The role of third starter has been in flux for IU ever due to the injury of Kyle Hart and the struggles of sophomore Will Coursen-Carr. Korte learned the day before he would get the nod, and he delivered. His final line — 6.1
innings pitched, five hits, one earned run, four walks and four strikeouts. “To start two games in one week is ridiculous,” junior reliever Luke Harrison said. “It’s a crazy week, but (Korte’s) a great pitcher.” Harrison was also key in thwarting any potential Hoosier rally. When Korte came out of the game in the seventh inning, he struggled and left the bases loaded. Smith decided to put in the righty, Harrison, to try and kill the Spartan rally. The game was still in jeopardy, tied at 1-1. Harrison induced a soft ground ball that came right back to him. He threw home, getting the lead runner out.
The catcher, Schwarber, then rifled a throw to first base to complete the inning ending double play. Harrison pumped his fist and the crowd at Bart Kaufman Field erupted. The play proved vital as Michigan State would not get another good scoring opportunity. Harrison allowed just one hit in his 2.2 innings of work. But when he came into the bases loaded situation, he said, he wasn’t thinking about getting a double play ball. “I was just thinking, ‘Get a fly ball, keep it low,’” Harrison said. “I was thinking about a strikeout also, but I got lucky. Well, not lucky. I got the pitch I wanted to and it came right to me.”
Academy Award-winning producer Roger Corman made an appearance at 3 p.m. Friday in the IU Cinema. He shared his knowledge of the filmmaking industry as part of the Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker Lecture Series. Graduate assistant David Church lead an interview with Corman, discussing his more than 40 years of filmmaking experience. Department of Communication and Culture faculty member Susanne Schwibs said she believes students need to gain perspective about various directing styles to grow in the craft. “I think the most important thing for students is gaining insight on how different directors think and their artistic perspective,” she said. “Everyone is different in how they think and what they believe film should do, and this will give students an opportunity to get a closeup look as to how Corman does so.” Corman was the youngest filmmaker to receive a retrospective at the Cinematheque Française, British Film Institute and the Museum of Modern Art. Some of his well-known works include “The Little Shop of

Horrors,” “House of Usher,” “The Terror” and “Death Race.” He has inspired and mentored film directors, including Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard and Jonathan Demme. Corman also helped to make actors Jack Nicholson and Peter Fonda household names. Prior to his lecture in the cinema, Corman taught a master class to students. IU Cinema Director Jon Vickers helps decide what guest speakers to bring to the cinema throughout the year. “We look to bring in a diverse group of professionals, from directors to producers to actors,” Vickers said. “We look for reputable folks that
have made their mark on the industry or are making their mark. In Corman’s case, he is an icon for independent films, having produced over 400 films and receiving a lifetime achievement Oscar.” The cinema has provided students with many opportunities to meet and hear from professionals in the business, but Vickers said Corman is one who will be especially influential. “He shot ‘The Little Shop of Horrors’ with Jack Nicholson in two days,” Vickers said. “He is a frugal, efficient filmmaker not afraid to take on anything, regardless of budget.”

The 27th running of the women’s race will begin at 4 p.m. Friday at Bill Armstrong Stadium. The men’s race, in its 64th running, will be held in the same location and will begin at 2 p.m. the following day. The women’s race is 25 miles and the men’s is 50, and the riders — all of whom must be college students — can compete in teams of up to four. The races are organized to mimic the Indianapolis 500, an annual car race,
and both races will be televised by AXS TV on a national scale. Jordan Bailey, the Little 500 race director for the IU Student Foundation, spoke to the positive attributes of the foundation’s ties with the race in the press release. “Since its inception in 1951, the Little 500 has had a positive impact on the lives of those that it has touched,” he said. “Including the riders who participate, the volunteers who help to put it on and the students who receive scholarships from the money that it raises.”

Gamechanger Tracy Smith leaves programs better than he found them. With Indiana, he’s found somewhere he wants to stay. BY EVAN HOOPFER | firstname.lastname@example.org @EvanHoopfer
racy Smith is always surprised how much people curse when playing video games. Smith, the IU baseball coach, plays video games to escape reality. After a tough loss, or if he’s just bored during the day, he’ll fire up his Xbox 360. He doesn’t have to think about if he should have pulled his starting pitcher earlier, or if he should have sent the runner home or not. He can just lose himself. But he’s selective in what he loses himself in. “I only play one game,” Smith said. “I play ‘Call of Duty Black Ops II,’ hardcore team deathmatch. That’s it.” He prefers to remain anonymous when he plays with other people online. He’s free to just be another random player and crack jokes with his famous sense of humor. “I definitely don’t tell them who I am,” Smith said about his online anonymity. “Because I crush ‘em.” But Smith is anything but anonymous in the world of college baseball. Smith has spent nine years building IU into what is now a legitimate national title contender. Last season, he won National Coach of the Year after taking IU to the College World Series. Smith has built several programs in his coaching career, only to leave for greener pastures each time. The question

of whether Smith will stay in Bloomington has been brought up in the past. But as he proved last year, he can win a national championship in Bloomington. First, he’s going to take out his aggression on these damn kids playing “Call of Duty” with him. If they curse at him, sometimes he indulges and fires shots back. “If I’m feeling rowdy and I want to

Ranked teams continue to trouble Hoosiers BY DAN MATNEY email@example.com
The Hoosiers’ struggles in Big Ten play continued during the weekend. After splitting a midweek doubleheader with Ball State, the IU softball team (13-33-1, 4-13) was swept in Evanston, Ill., by No. 25 Northwestern (27-11, 9-6). The loss gives IU an 0-11 record this season against ranked opponents. Despite the weekend results, IU Coach Michelle Gardner said she was encouraged by the team’s performance in the last two games. “That is the number 25 team in the country, and we competed with them all weekend,” she said. “We really battled. I’m very happy with how we competed this weekend.” In the first game of the series, Northwestern’s bats were too much for IU as they fell in six innings 8-0. Northwestern drove its first run across the plate in the bottom of the second inning. Facing a 2-2 count with one out, Northwestern junior infielder Anna Edwards hit a solo home run over the left field wall. After a scoreless third inning, Northwestern found the scoreboard again in the fourth, this time pushing two across to extend the lead to three runs. Following a double in
the bottom half of the fifth from Northwestern senior infielder Mari Majam that drove in one run, senior infielder Marisa Bast took the fifth pitch of her at bat. The hit went over the left field wall for a two-run home run, giving the Wildcats a six-run lead. A pair of Northwestern RBI singles extended the lead to eight, which ended the game due to the NCAA run rule. IU didn’t register a hit until the top of the fourth in the second game, when freshman outfielder Natalie Lalich reached after a bunt to second base. It was the first of just two hits off of sophomore pitcher Kristen Wood. The Hoosiers were unable to take advantage of opportunities with runners on base in game two, stranding eight in the 4-2 loss. “We have to execute,” Gardner said. “We need to control what we can control. We have got to find a way to get timely hits when we have runners on base.” In the bottom of the first frame, Bast hit her second home run of the weekend, this time a solo shot to center field after facing a full count. With two outs in the top of the third, Northwestern scored three runs off of three consecutive doubles, giving them an early fourrun advantage.

In the top of the sixth, IU scored the first runs of the weekend. With the bases loaded, senior third baseman Shelby Gogreve was walked, bringing in sophomore utility player Alyssa Rosati. IU scored again on the next at-bat after a wild pitch. Sophomore second baseman Kassi Farmer scored from third. In the third game of the weekend Sunday, the Hoosiers lost 3-2 off of a walk-off single. The Wildcats’ offense struck first, sending two runners across the plate to
give them a two-run lead in the bottom of the second inning. In the top of the fifth inning, IU knotted the game at two highlighted by a RBItriple off of the bat of senior third baseman Shelby Gogreve. With the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh inning, senior catcher Paige Tonz hit a 2-0 offering centerfield, driving the game’s winning run. “It was unfortunate that we lost, but we battled,” Gardner said. “It was the best the team played all weekend.”

All-Americans lead track and ﬁeld BY TORI ZIEGE firstname.lastname@example.org @ToriZiege
All-American athletes led the way for IU track and field as the team competed Saturday at the Kentucky Relays. Freshman All-American Tre’tez Kinnaird had the best performance of his career, setting a new personal record of one minute and 47.99 seconds in the 800 meter run. The goal of running a sub-one minute and 49 second time to beat his previous personal record had been on Kinnaird’s mind for weeks. “I’ve been trying to get a PR for so long, and I’m so close,” he said last weekend before the Border Battle. Kinnaird, a Louisville, Ky., native, said he hoped to shine at Cardinal Park in front of family and friends. One week later in Lexington, Ky., he had that chance

again — capitalizing on his support by securing the fourth-best 800 meter time in school history and the 10thbest in the NCAA. It is also the first time a Hoosier has run a sub-one minute 48 seconds 800 since Keith Allen in 1988. “The whole team was hanging on the fence as he went ripping by,” Associate Head Coach Jeff Huntoon said. “It was a courageous race.” Fellow All-American and junior Rorey Hunter continued his streak of success on the track, where he ran the sixth-fastest mile in program history. Paced by teammate Robby Nierman through the first two laps, Hunter cruised for a time of four minutes and .97 seconds — the fastest clocked on the University of Kentucky’s track. “Rorey decided to throw
G l o b a l
the hammer down,” Huntoon said. “He’s really found himself over the last two or three months, and he’s continued to run with a lot of confidence.” Sophomore Jordan Gornall, the third All-American from the distance medley relay, tailed Kinnaird closely during the 800 meter run. He finished fourth in one minute and 50.13 seconds. Together, the trio invited top performances from other IU teammates. “When you have a great racer, sometimes you’re not fortunate to have them right in front of you every day at practice,” Huntoon said. “We’ve got two or three kids on this team that just display a great level of composure. There’s a wonderful relaxed rhythm that I hope a lot of the young kids on our team are watching.” The 3000-meter steeple
Pe r s p e c t i v e s
chase was the top event for the Hoosiers, bringing home four top-five finishers. In the men’s race, freshman Jason Crist, junior Nolan Fife and senior Nierman took spots two through four, which included a career-best finish of eight minutes and 58.36 seconds for Crist. Freshman Kelsey Kluesner emerged victorious in the women’s race in 10 minutes and 47.85 seconds — the 10th-best time in school history. Freshman Nakel McClinton also set a top-10 program mark. She finished fifth overall in the hammer throw competition, delivering on some pre-meet expectations set by Coach Huntoon. “Nakel, as a redshirt freshman, is really starting to make some strong gains,”

Freshman Seger paces Hoosiers, IU ﬁnishes ninth BY CASEY KRAJEWSKI email@example.com
The IU men’s golf team struggled to find a rhythm in a talented field at the Boilermaker Invitational in West Lafayette this weekend. They finished in a tie for ninth place out of 15 teams. The invitational included seven Big Ten teams competing against each other just two weeks before the Big Ten Championship. IU hovered around the middle of the pack all weekend. After the first round, they sat in a tie for 10th. But by the end of the second round, they had moved up to a tie for eighth. At the end of the tournament, they were in a tie with Michigan State for ninth place. “I don’t think we played our best,” IU Coach Mike Mayer said. “We have to start getting all our guys going at the same time if we want to contend.” Freshman Will Seger was the top golfer of the weekend for IU. His scores of 73-71-74 totaled a 218 (+2) and placed him 11th place individually. “I played pretty well all weekend,” Seger said. “I can definitely build on this, and I think I’ve made some improvements in the last few tournaments.” Seger started Sunday’s final round tied for fifth and was sitting at -1 overall through 51 holes. But he splashed a shot into a water hazard, resulting in a triple bogey on the par-3 which set him back. He finished the round at +2. “I just have to be more cautious, I guess,” Seger said. Mayer said Seger worked hard for the team, and his teammates don’t look at him as a freshman anymore. “It’s the end of his
freshman year, and he’s seen action in every tournament,” Mayer said. “He’s very mature, and I would not be at all surprised if he was a big time factor in two weeks.” After Seger, sophomore Max Kollin’s rounds of 7375-72 netted a +4 at 220. That score tied him with five other players for 16th place. “I felt like I played pretty solid, for the most part,” Kollin said. “I got away with a couple shots, and I hit some that didn’t turn out fantastic. I feel like it all balances out in the end.” The other three Hoosier golfers, senior David Mills and juniors Andrew Fogg and Nicholas Grubnich, were less consistent. Mills, normally IU’s top golfer, could not come back from a rough start. His scores of 78-75-75 totaled an uncharacteristic 228 (+12). Mills tied for 52rd in the tournament. “David has been fighting through some issues lately,” Mayer said. “And he’s so close to breaking through. It’s frustrating. He’s so close.” Fogg and Grubnich finished tied for 65th and 76th, respectively. Grubnich started hot and was -2 through his first nine holes of the tournament, but fell away and finished the round at +5 and the tournament at +22. The Hoosiers next hit the links in two weeks for the Big Ten Championship in French Lick, Ind. Mayer said the team will use the week off to focus on fundamentals. “We made some mistakes we haven’t been making this tournament,” Mayer said. “We saw some fundamental mistakes, and we’re not a strong enough team to make fundamental mistakes. So we have some things to work on.”

Student group puts on concert for St. Jude’s BY ALYSSA SCHOR firstname.lastname@example.org
The skies were a clear blue and the sun shined down on Dunn Meadow on Saturday for the second annual “Hey St. Jude!” benefit concert. The event, sponsored by the Human Biology Student Government, featured food, games, karaoke and music from local bands. Proceeds benefitted St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis,
Tenn. The hospital aims to prevent and find cures for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Senior Jessica Shaker, president of the Human Biology Student Government, said St. Jude has been a part of her life since she was young. She said members of her family are on the hospital’s board and have taken part in fundraising efforts in her hometown Chicago. She interned at the
hospital last summer and will work there again this summer. Shaker said after she saw a music video campaign put on by the hospital for the “Hey St. Jude!” concerts, she wanted to bring one to Bloomington. “I just thought it would be cool to do something here,” she said. “People have done it, but we tried to make it our own.” Some students in attendance wore T-shirts that read, “Finding cures, saving
children.” Shaker said her favorite thing about St. Jude is no child’s family has to pay for treatment. The hospital needs about $3 million per day to keep facilities up and running, she said, and that money is mainly provided through donations and grants. “It’s pretty amazing that they manage to fundraise this,” Shaker said. Attendees had the opportunity to participate in a few small game
tournaments and win prizes donated from local vendors, which included Taste of India, Noodles & Company and Yogi’s Bar and Grill. Another contest had participants guess the number of jellybeans in a jar. Performers included folk bands the Underhills and Dietrich John, blues band Lost Catfish and rock band Fizzbang.

his bandmates and simply came along to perform. “We like humans and biology,” he said. Senior Austen Rang, vice president of the Human Biology Student Government, said all of the participating bands were supportive of the event and very willing to help out. He said he enjoyed seeing people come together to have fun and raise money for a good cause. “Hopefully we can keep it going for a few years to come,” he said.
IU Opera and Ballet Theater announces 6 operas and 3 ballets to run next season IU Opera and Ballet Theater has announced its 66th season “Go Boldly,” which will feature six operas and three ballets. Subscriptions go on sale April 28. Single tickets go on sale Sept. 2, except for “The Nutcracker,” which will go on sale Nov. 4. OPERA “The Italian Girl in Algiers” When 8 p.m. Sept. 19-20, 26-27 This Italian opera is a comedy about a young Italian girl named Isabella. She is captured in a shipwreck by pirates and taken to the leader of Algiers to be considered for marriage. The leader, Mustafà, already has a wife and has enslaved Isabella’s fiancé. Isabella tries to outwit Mustafà in order to escape Algiers and return home. Sung in Italian with English supertitles “LA BOHÈME” When 8 p.m. Oct. 17-18, 2425 and 2 p.m. Oct 19 “La Bohème” follows the romance of poet Rodolfo and seamstress Mimi. In Act III, the two independently decide to separate. Mimi thinks Rodolfo has become too jealous, and Rodolfo fears for Mimi’s health — which he believes poverty has made worse. Sung in Italian with English supertitles “The Last Savage” When 8 p.m. Nov. 14-15, 21 and 7 p.m. Nov. 20 This production makes its IU Opera debut this season. Anthropology student Kitty is searching for a primitive man who has not experienced modern society to use for her project. Kitty’s parents want her to give up her studies and marry a wealthy leader. To avoid this, Kitty hires a local peasant to act as her project study, until she actually falls in love with him. Sung in English with English supertitles
“Alcina” When 8 p.m. Feb. 6-7, 13-14 “Alcina” is set on a magical island ruled by two sister-sorceresses, Morgana and Alcina. Each knight that ventures to the island is seduced by Alcina, who transforms them into stones, animals or plants after growing tired of them. Eventually a knight comes that Alcina falls madly in love with, but he rejects her — much to her shock. Sung in Italian with English supertitles “South Paciﬁc” When 8 p.m. Feb. 27-28, March 6-7 and 2 p.m. March 1 “South Pacific” is based on the Pulitzer Prizewinning 1947 book, “Tales of the South Pacific.” ‘The opera follows an American nurse as she falls in love with a Frenchman and struggles to accept and love his mixed-race children. At the same time, a U.S. Lieutenant and Tonkinese woman face the difficult consequences of their marriage. The opera explores themes of racial prejudice and acceptance on a South Pacific island during World War II. Sung in English with English supertitles “The Magic Flute” When 8 p.m. April 10-11, 17-18 “The Magic Flute” returns to IU this season, telling a tale of good and evil. Newlyweds Pamina and Tamino work to gain enlightenment. Along the way, they are influenced by the evil Queen of the Night and bird catcher Papageno. The opera also features a dragon and colorful puppets. Sung in German with English dialogue and supertitles
BALLET Fall Ballet When 8 p.m. Oct. 3-4, additional performance at 2 p.m. Oct. 4 This three-part ballet features work from three famous ballet choreographers. The first part of next season’s fall ballet is, “Emeralds,” the first act of George Balanchine’s ballet, “Jewels.” The second section, “Dark Elegies,” explores the emotion of losing children. The third and final part, called “The Envelope,” is a comedic dance to the tune of light and melodic music. The Nutcracker When 7 p.m. Dec. 4, 8 p.m. Dec. 5, 2 and 8 p.m. Dec. 6, 2 p.m. Dec. 7 One of the most popular ballets of all time and a regular season show for Jacobs, “The Nutcracker” is a classic Christmas story. Clara receives a nutcracker for Christmas. Falling asleep with it in her arms, she awakes to a new world where her Nutcracker has grown to a full-size prince. She follows him to his kingdom where she meets sugar plum fairies and evil mice. Spring Ballet When 8 p.m. March 27-28, additional performance at 2 p.m. March 28 Like the Fall Ballet, the Spring Ballet is sectioned into three different ballets. The first part is the second act of Swan Lake, choreographed by George Balanchine, which tells the tale of a princess who was turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer. The second ballet is “Duets,” which features a set of dances for six couples. The final part is jazz ballet “Rubies,” which is the second act of Balanchine’s production “Jewels,” continuing from the spring ballet. Allison Graham

Smith arrived in Middletown after he played with the Chicago Cubs organization for a few years. He enjoyed playing, but ultimately decided playing professional ball wasn’t for him. Instead, he had applied for a generic administrative job. He and Jamie — his wife since they were both 19 years old — would lead a normal life. The only problem is, he didn’t get the job. Smith had never lacked confidence before, Jamie said. He was used to getting what he wanted. That’s when Jamie’s father, the athletic director at Miami University Middletown, came to Tracy and asked if he wanted to coach basketball. Tracy had never thought of coaching as a profession. But he was from a small town in Indiana — Kenton, Ind., with a population of 1,748 — so basketball was in his blood. “God’s country,” Smith said. “Home of Alexander J. Kent. Whoever the hell that is.” He accepted the basketball coaching job, but wanted to coach baseball. The university didn’t have a baseball program at the time. So he started one from the ground up. After a few years in Middleton, Tracy came back to his and Jamie’s alma mater, Miami University, to be an assistant coach. He moved on to become an assistant coach
at IU until he got the call to come back to Miami and become the head coach of the program. “The call came from the athletic director,” Smith said. “And he says, ‘Do you want to be our ne-’ and before he could even finish the sentence I said, ‘Yes!’ So there went my negotiations for salary right out the window.” But Smith wasn’t concerned about the money side of things. He had the opportunity he always wanted — to lead a program. The man who didn’t even fancy himself a coach had become the head of a program by age 30. * * * Smith said the baseball diamond was nothing more than a “glorified high school field” when he arrived at Miami University. Miami was historically a good mid-major team but had struggled. The Redhawks suffered four straight losing seasons for the first time in 29 years and finished 12-40 the year before he arrived. While Miami University was bigger than the first college he coached at, it still didn’t have all the resources Smith needed. His family was pulling weeds on the diamond, and Jamie’s father drove his tractor to the complex to tend to the dirt field. Smith would walk into the stadium and push the trashcans to the right places. “That was him,” Jamie said.
“There wasn’t a detail that was overlooked.” He was able to turn the program around. During his nine seasons, Smith averaged 35 wins a season — the highest average by a coach in Miami baseball history. He eclipsed the 40-win mark twice, something that happened just once in the previous 81 years in Miami baseball, and appeared in two NCAA tournaments. Smith was instrumental in the building of a new stadium. He transformed the field into a legitimate complex. But it wasn’t enough. The only guaranteed bid for smaller schools to get into the NCAA Tournament is to win their conference. In smaller conferences like the MAC — Miami’s conference — usually only one team got into the NCAA Tournament. Miami was in the MAC championship one time, but lost in the bottom of the ninth inning. The cold reality set in for the Smiths. “That loss hurt. I cried,” Jamie said. “It felt like we had a ceiling. I felt like he couldn’t achieve something because it wasn’t possible.” During Smith’s last season at Miami, the program had one of their best seasons ever. The Redhawks went 45-18 — the most wins in school history. They beat Central Michigan 10-6 in the MAC championship game and were headed to the NCAA Tournament. Jamie remembers standing in the field after the game

with her husband. One thought kept creeping into her mind. “I remember thinking — it will never get better than this,” Jamie said. “We can repeat this 10 times, but it won’t be better than this. This is what this can be. He did everything he could do at Miami.” * * * IU second baseman Casey Rodrigue was talking to the media, answering questions about the upcoming series against Michigan State. He started to laugh when Smith came up behind the reporters, making faces and

trying to distract Rodrigue. When the reporters turned around, Smith rubbed his chin and looked at the ceiling. He tried to act nonchalant. The reporters turned to face Rodrigue, and Smith went at it again, making Rodrigue chuckle through the interview. “Sorry,” Rodrigue said at one point. “Skip’s over there making faces.” Smith tries not to take himself too seriously. His Twitter account is a mix of baseball comments, reviews of various TV shows, interactions with fans and selfies of his beard. “I don’t have a gazillion followers. I’m getting closer to 10,000 though,” he paused. “9,100, but who’s counting?” He’s still learning the nuances of social media. On Twitter, he used to respond to people in all capital letters, giving off the impression he was yelling. After being made fun of by everybody in his family, Smith finally stopped using all caps. “See, I didn’t know that was yelling,” he said. “It was my Twitter ignorance. I was a Twitter virgin. Or a tweet virgin.” Smith is always trying to come up with different ways to promote his program. Kyle Kuhlman, Smith’s media relations staff member for three-and-a-half years, said he thinks Smith is one of the best imaginative thinkers he’s met. Kuhlman and Smith used to do a weekly video called “Skip’s Scoop.” Kuhlman would shoot the video of Smith talking about the team’s upcoming opponent or whatever Smith felt like talking about at the time. One time, when the team was on a spring break trip in Florida, Kuhlman suggested jokingly they should do the video with Smith in the hot tub. Smith didn’t take it as a joke. They shot the video with Smith sitting in a hotel hot tub. “I won’t forget that,” Kuhlman said. “I don’t know another coach who would be willing to do something fun and out-of-the-box like that.” * * * “Breaking Bad” is the greatest TV show of all time, Smith said. “House of Cards” is number two. He also put “Lost,” “Dexter” and “Sons on Anarchy” in his top five. “Oh, but ‘Games of Thrones’ is good, too,” Smith said, questioning his own list. “Oh, and ‘Homeland.’” Sometimes after a hard loss, Smith will come home and watch Netflix for four or five hours. It helps keep his mind off replaying bad things repeatedly. When he was watching “Lost,” he found himself consumed by the show. He would catch himself thinking about the latest plot on “Lost” while coaching third base during games. “I was so into that series,” he said. “I have found myself actually wanting to be stranded on an island. I was like, ‘Wouldn’t that be cool?’” When Smith first arrived in Bloomington, he needed every escape from reality he could get. In his first two years, he went a combined 41-69.

he said before the Kentucky Relays. “Of course, you wish you could go out there and produce big performances week after week, but the consistency of training will allow it to happen at the right time.” Saturday proved to be the right time for McClinton.

During his last year at Miami, he won 45 games and went to the NCAA Tournament. But he left that situation because of the resources IU had. He was promised a new stadium would be built. He wasn’t taking over a powerhouse, either. In the two years before Smith arrived at IU, the Hoosiers finished last in the Big Ten both seasons, going a combined 18-45 in the conference. “And what really clicked in my head was, ‘OK, Tracy Smith, you’re really that good? Let’s see you do it again,’” Smith said. All of Smith’s hard work culminated last year. He got the stadium he was promised — 2013 was the inaugural season of Bart Kaufman Field. He went from having one of the worst stadiums in the Big Ten to one of the best college venues in the Midwest. The team’s performance on the field also took off. For the first time in the program’s then 118-year history, they were ranked in the national polls. IU made the 2013 College World Series, another program first. Smith remembers being in shock for most of the time in Omaha, Neb. This was what he had envisioned for the IU program, and he was trying his best to take it all in. IU ultimately was defeated by Oregon State, ending the best season in IU history. But IU had climbed the mountain nobody thought they could. Not even Smith, when he came to IU in 2006, was positive he could ever make it to the College World Series. “I’ll be honest with you,” Smith said. “It always seemed like this distant thing. It always seemed like I was talking about something else. It always seemed like it was somewhere over there. Did I think we could do it? I mean, I gave us a chance. But realistically, the way college baseball is structured, I thought it would be tough.” * * * IU opened up the season No. 3 in the preseason Baseball America poll, the highestever ranking for the program. In less than a decade, Smith built the worst program in the Big Ten into a national title contender. But since IU isn’t historically a baseball program, the question arises — will he stay in Bloomington? He has had the chance to leave. He interviewed for the head-coaching job at Ohio State in 2010 but turned it down. He said at the time that IU’s atmosphere and the “24 sports, one team” mantra was true. In Columbus, Ohio, he wouldn’t have that same feeling. And now he has a stateof-the-art stadium, facilities and one of the more talented teams in the country. But he also has his wife and three sons, his rural house, his four dogs, his two cats and a program he’s poured his soul into for nine years. “We’ll retire in Bloomington whether I’m coaching here or not,” Smith said. “Plus, we got a state-of-the-art facility and we’re winning. I see it as, ‘Is there anything better?’”
Huntoon said the meet left him thinking about other historic performances in the sport. “When we were riding back on the bus, I was thinking of when the first guy broke four minutes in the mile, and what a courageous effort that was to break down barriers,” Huntoon said. “We’ve got kids that are out there breaking barriers. It’s just impressive anytime you see someone run at that rhythm and at that pace.”
