Big Ten Flashback: Watch our Kyle Schwarber feature from 2012

Chicago Cubs rookie Kyle Schwarber made quite a splash on Wednesday night when he crushed a two-run home run into the river during Chicago’s 4-0 wildcard win over Pittsburgh. He also had an RBI single, and it all brought back memories of Schwarber’s career at Indiana, where he starred at the plate and behind it. In 2012 BTN featured Schwarber and teammate Sam Travis, then known as the latest version of the “Bash Brothers.” “I’m going to crush the ball,” Schwarber told us then about his approach to hitting. “And that’s all you can really think when you’re up there.”

Photo: Indiana shorts to feature five stars, one for every banner

The last couple of weeks, several Big Ten men’s basketball teams have unveiled new uniform designs on social media. Indiana is the latest. Wednesday, the Hoosiers tweeted a picture of their new adidas design, which looks very similar to its classic look, except for one new wrinkle. Indiana will have five stars on its shorts, one for every national title. This is a nice touch, something other teams have done recently. The Ohio State football team had Buckeyes leaves on the back of its jersey collar last season to mark its seven national championships. The Buckeyes went on to win
