Rich tradition: Indiana State men’s track seniors going for 7 of 8 MVC titles this weekend

FROM THE PRESS BOX: Sycamores have that winning ‘feel’
When you cover a team, no matter the sport, you hear a lot about the “feel” around a team. Morale, spirit, whatever you want to call it, it’s something that universal to all sports.
Entering Indiana State’s half of the sixth inning in its baseball series against Missouri State this weekend, the scores were thus: 6-6 on Friday, Missouri State leading 4-0 on Saturday and the Bears leading 3-0 on Sunday.

Former ISU star Bell confident he’ll achieve his NFL dream
When running back Shakir Bell garnered little Football Bowl Subdivision interest coming out of Warren Central High School in 2009, the fire that raged within Bell to prove his doubters wrong burned long and hot.
Bell turned to Indiana State to ply his trade and it’s no accident that the Sycamores’ fortunes rose dramatically as he made his presence felt. ISU’s three winning seasons from 2010-12 all came with Bell in a prominent role. Bell’s 4,214 career rushing yards and 30 touchdowns are a testament to his legacy as a Sycamore.
No loss of mojo for Sycamores as they earn 30th win of season
Baseball is a sport predicated as much as any other on rhythm and timing. So when Indiana State’s baseball team took an unplanned 10-day break, it was right to wonder whether the Sycamores could retain the mojo they had in their 29-13 start.
On Wednesday, the Sycamores returned to action against Mid-American Conference-leading Ball State. That mojo? It was as if it never left. ISU jumped on the Cardinals in a four-run first and did a high-wire act the rest of the way to earn a 9-7 victory at Ball Diamond.

Same script: Once again, Sycamores use strong pitching, defense to win close game
If an alien from outer space were planning to visit Bob Warn Field to see what the fuss involving Indiana State baseball was all about, Sunday’s rubber game of the Missouri Valley Conference series between the Sycamores and Dallas Baptist would have been the perfect time to see a typical example. ISU scrapped and clawed and scratched out a few runs, overcoming adversity with the help of stellar defense and clutch pitching.

Indiana State wraps up spring football with annual Blue-White game
With spring football at Indiana State, it’s more constructive to take note of the little things rather than the big.
ISU wrapped up spring ball with its annual Blue-White game on Friday at Memorial Stadium. Due to numbers issues at several spots, most notably in the interior of the offensive and defensive lines, it wasn’t a game at all in the strictest sense. In reality, it was an organized practice with officials.
ISU baseball opens big MVC series with victory
Brian Romero’s clutch first-inning homer appeared to set up Indiana State for an easy Missouri Valley Conference baseball win over visiting Dallas Baptist on Friday night at Bob Warn Field.

ISU Blue-White Game is Friday
The spring game at the Football Championship Series level is a bit different than it is for the Football Bowl Series programs.
Unlike FBS, FCS teams like Indiana State can continue to recruit junior college and Division I transfers after their spring practice is over. It means the dynamic of the FCS spring game is different than the finality it has at the FBS level.

As its 21st-place ranking in unofficial NCAA baseball RPI lists attest, Indiana State’s baseball team has done a lot right this season.
