Thumbs up: Indiana's soccer legacy lives 

00thumbupNEW.jpg

Indiana University Men's Soccer earned its eighth national championship title in a 1-0 victory over Georgetown on Sunday. Bloomington boy Todd Yeagley, a successful player in his own right, coached his hometown team to victory and demonstrated his adherence to the core principles of utter futbol domination as practiced by his father Jerry, the team founder and coach of six national championship-winning teams. Todd's passion for intensity is apparent in comments to NCAA.com: "It was a really hard-fought final. ... Words are hard to explain what we shared in the locker room and what we shared on the field." Words cannot express the joy of knowing IU soccer remains in Yeagley hands!
