first_imgUnless you have been out of the state or just simply not listening, you should know that IU basketball has received a commitment from Romeo Langford of New Albany.  It is not clear what Langford’s overall commitment is, but many fear it will be a “one and done” situation.  The new NCAA proposal, if passed, will not take effect until next year requiring a longer commitment for recruits.Meanwhile, at Purdue, head football Coach Brohm was given a contract extension.  Several reasons were given for this!  According to the Indianapolis Star, this year Brohm will receive 3.8 million and it will go up from there until it expires in 2024.  One reason was the renewed interest by the fan base and alumni and the energy developed on the Purdue campus.  Purdue had only won 9 games in 4 years before Brohm was given the job.  He not only won 7 games last year, but he got a bowl win as well.last_img read more


first_img Press Association Pat Lam, Connacht’s new head coach, said: “James is a superb utility back who can play all positions but half-back. “He can kick goals from up to 60 metres out and I’m sure with the Galway wind, we will see him kick from even further out. “To have someone in our squad with so much versatility and who can kick goals from that distance is a real weapon in our armoury.” The utility back, the younger brother of former All Black Rodney So’oialo and ex-Harlequins scrum-half Stephen So’oialo, joins from Wellington Norths on a two-year deal. The 24-year-old was part of Samoa’s 2011 World Cup squad and has been included in their party for the upcoming tour to South Africa. center_img Connacht have completed the signing of Samoa international James So’oialo.last_img read more
