Given to Fly: Watch it live! ISU expanding presence on Web

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State has taken a step in the right direction toward improved marketing of Sycamore athletics.

The ISU athletic department finalized a deal with XOS Technologies this week that will improve the Sycamores’ visibility to fans, alumni and potential recruits. Web streaming of men’s and women’s basketball home games will be available this season, hopefully beginning with a free stream of coach Royce Waltman’s team’s home opener Tuesday against Western Michigan.

The deal also involves a move and redesign of the Sycamores athletic web site to its own web server, away from the site at

This is a move that many of the major athletic programs in the NCAA made several years ago and it has trickled down throughout the nation.

“We’re probably one of the last college athletic sites still on a .edu,” said ISU associate athletic director Brett Burchette. ISU plans to have the new site launched in early January of 2007.

But the web streaming is in the works for upcoming home games. Burchette said they will test the video equipment with Hulman Center staff Monday.

“We’re hopeful to offer the service on Tuesday as long as there’s no glitches,” Burchette said.

Burchette said ISU hopes to have the web streaming service available throughout the men’s and women’s basketball seasons for all home games. It could also be offered for away games if the conference opponent offers the service.

Five other Missouri Valley Conference schools have contracts with XOS — Bradley, Creighton, Southern Illinois, Wichita State and Evansville. Illinois State and Northern Iowa have deals with CSTV, the most popular host for athletic web services.

The MVC began offering web streaming this fall for volleyball and soccer. Packages for men’s and women’s basketball are available through the conference. All men’s MVC basketball games are available for $89.95, and women’s games will be at a cost of $69.95.
