ZUVER: It Can’t Be Time to Believe Again, Can It?

How are we supposed to feel?  It's a question that Indianapolis Colts fans have been left feeling after a number of games this year. Whether it was the tie in Houston or the ugly wins vs. Kansas City and Denver, this Colts season is confusing. Sunday's game vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars was no different.


'Cardiac Cardinals' strike again

That ‘Cardiac Cardinals’ moniker popped in and out of conversations from fans as they left Scheumann Stadium. It could be heard around the team facility as players and coaches filtered out as if emphasizing the idea that this team would hang around until the bitter end.

JOSLIN: Low attendance for Ball State football needs to be fixed

I have been going to Ball State University games since I was 10. I was born in Muncie and grew up in New Castle. Ball State has been a constant in my life for as long as I can remember, and I take great pride and passion in this school and our teams.  I vividly remember the first game I saw; we were playing South Florida in October 2012. Keith Wenning and Willie Snead were tearing up the Bulls’ defense en route to a 31-27 triumph that day. That was the first time I got to experience the magic of college football, live and in living color.
