Midwest Sports Fans:
If you’re on a sports blog, I have to assume that the answer to the question posed in the title is a resounding YES.
As a fan of both the 49ers and Indiana Hoosiers myself (apparently I really like the Harbaugh-Crean family), each of which appear to have good chances of reaching their respective title games, such a sports dream prize pack is extra appealing to me this year. So I’ll be entering, and here is how you can too.
The sweepstakes highlighted by this prize pack is being offered by Prilosec OTC Wildberry, in conjunction with Yardbarker (of which MSF is a part). And it is occurring in conjunction with Larry the Cable Guy gittin’ ‘er done at sporting events across the country as part of the Wild American Flavor Tour.

It doesn’t get much more flavorful than New Orleans, where this year’s Super Bowl will be held. And Daytona Beach and Atlanta, where the Daytona 500 and NCAA Basketball Championship Game will be held, ar...

Entering Friday night's NCAA College Cup semi-finals Big Ten fans were hoping to see a current B1G team win and a future B1G team win for an all B1G clash as Indiana took on Creighton in one semi-final and Maryland took on Georgetown for the right to play for the national championship on Sunday.
However that dream matchup wouldn't come to fruition, but don't blame...
Big Ten Geeks on IU’s 3-point shooting:
The Hoosiers are, predictably, shooting worse than last season, but not by much. Indiana is hitting 40 percent from deep, maintaining the three-point shot as a very valuable weapon. Note that the team average would be 36.5 percent were it not for Remy Abell’s 10 for 12 performance. I thought Matt Roth had graduated, but maybe he’s just...
