IU in the News:

What a difference a year makes for Hoosiers' Sampson
ESPN.COM, February 1 -- Flushed with the thrill of a second-half lead on the No. 2 team in the country, the relentlessly rowdy Indiana student section filled the dead air of a dead-ball situation with an impromptu chant: "Kel-vin Samp-son!" Clap, clap, clap-clap-clap. "Kel-vin Samp-son!" Clap, clap, clap-clap-clap. This was significant. Ten months ago, when he was surprisingly hired away from Oklahoma, the refrain in this state was dramatically different: "Kel-vin Samp-son?" they asked, from Gary to Jeffersonville.

Tread where the fries won't go
Kansas City Star, Feb. 1 -- You can undo the harm of a "yes, I'll have fries with that" splurge by hopping on a treadmill within two to four hours of indulging. Exercise actually counteracts the immediate artery-stiffening effects of a high-fat meal, finds new Indiana University research. To reverse the maximum amount of damage, exercise at least 45 minutes, says Jaume Padilla, the study's lead author. Read the full story.
