If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere, so the saying goes. Well, the Big Ten is going to give it a shot on one of the biggest stages in the world.
The Indiana football team unveiled six new helmets Monday in a YouTube video that can be found at the bottom of this post. Let’s just say, the Hoosiers, who wore two helmets the last couple of years (No. 1; No. 2), will have plenty of options to consider every week this season.
Indiana outfielder Justin Cureton is no stranger to making highlight-reel catches. Time it right as a photographer, and his plays make for some pretty cool photos, as evidenced by the shot above from Indiana Athletics’ Mike Dickbernd.

The Big Ten office announced the conference schedule for the 2015 football season today, which will consist of eight games for each of the Big Ten’s 14 teams before the conference moves to nine-game schedules in 2016. The 2015 schedule starts on Sept. 19 and will culminate with the fifth annual Big Ten Football Championship Game.
Catcher Kyle Schwarber homered, Justin Cureton made a critical leaping catch and Indiana earned its first regional title by beating Austin Peay for the second consecutive night, winning 6-1 in the championship of the Bloomington Regional on Sunday.
Sam Travis homered to help power Indiana past Austin Peay 15-6 on Saturday night and into the regional title game. Scott Donley and Michael Basil each drove in four runs for the Hoosiers (45-14), who will play the winner of Sunday afternoon’s elimination game between Valparaiso and Austin Peay.
Chad Clark hit a two-run walk-off home run (watch it!) to cap a four-run ninth inning and lead Indiana to a thrilling 5-4 comeback victory over Valparaiso on Friday night at Bart Kaufman Field. The top-seeded Hoosiers (44-14) take on No. 2 seed Austin Peay (46-13) at 6:05 pm ET Saturday in the Bloomington Regional. The Governors enter the contest with the nation’s longest winning streak (16).
