IUPUI sports. They have been my passion for the last 2+ years. I am at every game or match or meet I can possibly get to campus (or near-campus, or someone else's campus) for. Hell, that's what Student on Sports was created to do: Muster support for Indianapolis' red-headed step-child (to Butler, of course). Here's the problem...All IUPUI sports are are winless right now. Totally and completely without victory.
Volleyball is 0-4. Losses to: Evansville, Michigan State, Bowling Green, and Indiana State. Hopefully they can turn their luck around with a big tournament at The Jungle over Labor Day weekend.
Women's Soccer is 0-3. Losses to: Eastern Illinois, Ball State, and Detroit. They are the reigning Summit League Champions, but their problems scoring and the constant rotation in the net isn't helping anything.
Men's Soccer was 1-1 in the pre-season, but they have two very tough tournaments on the road to start their season.
There is a lot of work to be done on all fronts. ALL fronts.
That being said, there are a couple HUGE opportunities for you to support all three sports that are in major need of it! Through the end of Fall Sports, there will be ___ games in Indianapolis. All games are free for IUPUI students and vary in costs for other spectators. Each and every one of them matter! Go to the games! Wear red! Go Jags!
