The Indiana Hoosiers are obviously a basketball school, not football. However, IU does have a very explosive offense and they’re quite apt at producing NFL talent at the offensive skill positions, especially at running back.

The Chicago Bears selected Indiana running back Jordan Howard in the fifth round (150th overall pick) of the 2016 NFL Draft on Saturday afternoon at the Auditorium Theater of Roosevelt University in Chicago. Along with Tevin Coleman, who was drafted in the third round by the Atlanta Falcons in 2015, this is the first time since 1990-92 (Anthony Thompson, Ernie Thompson and Vaughn Dunbar) Indiana running backs have been taken in consecutive drafts.

As Illinois Fighting Illini Football Coach Lovie Smith sells the program to recruits, his NFL pedigree will be a persistent theme. (We covered this in depth for RedEye on Thursday) Smith has been out of the college game for 21 years, but he takes over a program that had a really good reputation as a NFL vocational development school up until the last couple of years. Illini football excelled in winning draft night up until 2014, as the program was then shut out in 2015 and 2016.

 Fortunately for Lovie Smith, Illini football returned again to having a presence in the Draft this past weekend.

Editor’s note: this Johnny Manziel feature article is by guest contributor Crissy Froyd

Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was recently indicted on Class A misdemeanor charges. Ever since he began his NFL career, Manziel has been a victim of the media sensationalism, as all of mistakes have been magnified. If many of us were put to the same scrutiny that Manziel experiences, we might likely find ourselves in similar situations.

Countless athletes are just as “bad” as, or perhaps even “worse” than Manziel, but they simply do not find themselves brought forth into the limelight by the media. Therefore, their lifestyles are never exposed and criticized like Manziel’s is.

Manchester United have advanced to the FA Cup Final where they’ll take on Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium in twenty days time. The Red Devils could well be on their way to the first trophy of the Louis van Gaal era, but will that be enough to save the Dutchman from the sack?

No, according to reports that we’ve heard and seen all season long as United’s Champions League chances for next season continue to dissipate. Van Gaal himself though insists the opposite. He says he’ll return for the third and final year of his deal, whether there’s an FA Cup triumph or not.
