NEED HELP? CALL THOMPSON AND THOMPSON
The freshman duo of Tanner and Tommy Thompson has provided a spark for the Indiana offense this season.
The brothers are tied for third on the team in scoring with four points. Tommy has two goals on the season, while Tanner has one goal and two assists.
Tommy has scored in each of the last two games, putting in the game-tying goal in a 4-1 win over Bakersfield and giving IU a 1-0 lead in what would be a 1-1 tie with UC Irvine.
Tanner tallied his first goal of the season in a 5-4, double OT loss to West Virgina on Sept. 8. He then assisted on two goals, including Jacob Bushue's game winner, in a 4-1 win over Bakersfield.
Tommy has started all six games this season, while Tanner has come in off the bench for all six matches.
OT? OH, NO...
Extra time has not been kind to the Hoosiers this season as they are 0-3-1 in games that extend beyond 90 minutes.
The Hoosiers were downed just 49 seconds into the first overtime on Sept. 1 vs. UCLA, falling to the Bruins by a 1-0 score.
After giving up a penalty kick with 46 seconds left in regulation to tie the game a 1-1, Indiana saw UAB score the game-winning goal with 17 seconds left in the first OT for a 2-1 victory on Sept. 6.
It was three-straight OTs on Sept. 8 as IU came back from a 3-1 deficit to tie the game at 4-4, but the Mountaineers were victorious in the 103rd minute.
Indiana finally held its ground in OT on Sept. 15, playing UC Irvine to a 1-1 tie.
Indiana is 5-11-19 in overtime matches since the 2007 season.
RIGHT WHERE HE LEFT OFF
Sophomore forward Femi Hollinger-Janzen picked up right where he left off, scoring the first goal of the season for the Hoosiers in a 2-1 win over SMU on Aug. 30.
Hollinger-Janzen's header into the back of the net came off a shot from Matt McKain that bounced off the cross bar.
It was the fifth career goal for Hollinger-Janzen. His biggest career goal to date was the game winner in a 1-0 victory over Creighton in the College Cup semifinal.
Hollinger-Janzen tallied his second goal of the year in a 4-1 win over Baksersfield on Sept. 13, putting home a shot to the lower right off a pass from Tanner Thompson.
A LITTLE HISTORY LESSON
Did you know that through the first six matches of the 2003 season, the Indiana Hoosiers had a record of 2-2-2?
After eight matches that record stood at 2-3-4.
What did that slow start mean? Nothing, as the 2003 squad went on to capture the program's sixth national title with a final record of 17-3-5.
SCORING BY COMMITTEE
Indiana knew going into this season that with the loss of 18-goal scorer Eriq Zavaleta, it would take several Hoosiers to step up and find the back of the net.
That is exactly what has happened as eight different players account for Indiana's 12 goals this season.
Jacob Bushue, A.J. Corrado, Tommy Thompson and Femi Hollinger-Janzen lead the way with two goals each.
Nikita Kotlov, Tanner Thompson, Harrison Petts and Patrick Doody have also gotten in on the scoring action.

CAPTAIN TO CAPTAIN
Captains Jacob Bushue and Harrison Petts were instrumental in several of the Hoosiers' goals in a 5-4 2 OT loss to West Virginia on Sept. 8.
Bushue put the Hoosiers on the board in the 33rd minute as he headed home a free kick from Petts.
For Indiana's second goal of the night the roles were reversed as Bushue played a ball into the box that was slotted home by Petts in the 59th minute.
Bushue picked up his second assist of the night on Nikita Kotlov's game-tying goal in the 83rd minute.
Bushue currently leads the team in scoring with 6 points (2 goals, 2 assists).
THOMPSON TWINS? NOT QUITE...
The Hoosiers have a set of brothers on the squad this year in freshmen Tanner and Tommy Thompson. But while they are the same age athletically and academically, these brothers are not twins.
Tanner is the oldest of the two, born Aug. 12, 1994. He graduated from high school a semester early and joining the Hoosiers in January 2013 in time for the spring season.
Tommy is his younger brother, born Aug. 15, 1995. He finished high school in just three years to join the Hoosiers in the fall of 2013.
They are Indiana legacies as their father Gregg played for Jerry Yeagley from 1978-82.
The elder Thompson scored both goals in the Hoosiers' eight-overtime, 2-1 win over Duke in the 1982 NCAA title game. He was inducted into the Indiana Athletics Hall of Fame in 2007.
INDIANA IN THE POLLS
The Hoosiers remain unranked in the NSCAA and Soccer America polls at 2-3-1. Indiana dropped to No. 23 in the Top Drawer Soccer poll and is unranked in the College Soccer News rankings.
In the 2013 preseason polls, Indiana came in at No. 1 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), College Soccer News and Top Drawer Soccer rankings.
The Hoosiers were ranked second in the Soccer America preseason poll.
YEAGLEY, MAISONNEUVE TO IU HALL OF FAME
It was announced Sept. 5 that Todd Yeagley and Brian Maisonneuve will be inducted into the IU Athletics Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame induction will take place on Oct. 4. Yeagley and Maisonneuve become the fifth and sixth soccer players elected to the HOF, joining Angelo DiBernardo, Armando Betancourt, John Stollmeyer and Gregg Thompson.
One of the most decorated players in IU Soccer history, Yeagley won soccer letters in 1991, 1992, 1993 and 1994, and was All-Big Ten in 1991, 1992, 1993, and 1994. He was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year in 1991 and second-team All-American in 1991, 1992, 1993, and first-team All-American in 1994.
He is one of only two IU players to earn All-American honors all four years. Yeagley also received the Missouri Athletic Club Player of the Year award in 1994. He still ranks third on the IU career list in assists with 40.
Yeagley played for Major League Soccer's Columbus Crew from 1996-2002 and was assistant general manager for the Crew in 2002.
Maisonneuve represented Indiana Soccer at the highest levels, competing at the 1996 Olympics and the 1998 World Cup as a member of the U.S. Men's National Team. He won soccer letters in 1991, 1992, 1993 and 1994 and was All-Big Ten in 1991, 1992, 1993 and 1994 and Big Ten Player-of-the-Year in 1993 and 1994.
Maisonneuve was Academic All-Big Ten in 1993 and 1994, first-team All-America in 1994 and second-team All-America in 1993. He won the Herrmann Trophy in 1994 as National Player of the Year. He ranked ninth in career points upon graduation and still sits among the top 15.
Maisonneuve played for Major League Soccer's Columbus Crew from 1996-2005, where he was a three-time MLS All-Star. He served as assistant coach with the U-17 National Team and the U-20 National Team from 2005-2008. Maisonneuve was an assistant coach at the University of Louisville from 2008-2010 and joined Indiana University as assistant coach in 2010.
THE BILL WAS FILLED
The Hoosiers set a new Armstrong Stadium attendance record on Sept. 1 when 7,720 fans passed through the gates to see the team take on UCLA.
That topped the old record of 7,423 set in 2007 also against UCLA as part of the adidas/IU Credit Union Classic.
More than 3,200 IU students were part of that 7,720 attendance total, filling the Hoosier Army section to beyond capacity.
