Rundown of events and growth of Shindigz soccer festival, in which the Hoosiers kick off their season against #8 Marquette tonight.

That's tonight, so if you are in the area, check out a couple of real powerhouse match-ups with the Hoosiers playing at 7pm, and again on Saturday night (also at 7pm) against #5 UNC. Additionally, I've got to include a shout-out to the Hoosier Scoop, from who I pulled a couple of the links today, as well as for their nice Men's soccer preview above. They often do live-blogging of some kind or another, especially at in-state games, which I simply can't do. Between them and twitter, I can often follow the IU soccer games in real time (somewhat ).
