As you may or may not have noticed, I just went live with a re-design of the site. It’s our first significant revamp to the product since the fall of 2013.

Thanks to our friends at Underground Printing, we’re back once again with a contest for the 2015-2016 season.
As we’ve done for several years now, we’re giving you the opportunity to predict IU’s regular season record for the upcoming season. There are 13 non-conference games and 18 Big Ten games for a total of 31 contests.
Editor’s note: We’re excited to announce that we’ve hired our new beat writer, Andrew Vailliencourt, for the upcoming season. Andrew will be taking over all of the day-to-day duties that Jordan Littman had for the last two seasons and we’re thrilled to have him on board.
Make sure to follow him on Twitter and look for his coverage in the weeks and months to come. His introduction post follows.
Jordan Littman is completing his second season as our beat writer at Inside the Hall and will be moving on after graduation. Jordan, like Justin Albers and Zach Osterman before him, has been a tremendous asset to the site and will continue to serve in the role in the coming weeks, but it’s time to start thinking about replacing him.
We are looking for a new beat writer who will attend media availabilities throughout the season, cover every home game and also travel to cover select road games. While the position is not full-time, it is paid and a tremendous opportunity to expand your skills and gain valuable experience covering a major college basketball program.
This is now live, along with a host of other improvements that have been a focus since the 2013-2014 season wrapped up.
Instead of seeing a tight desktop version of the site on an iPad (or smaller tablet), there’s a lot more breathing room, as the tablet experience is a close mirror of what we have on mobile — a single column of content with white space on the side. (For readers who like a smaller browsing/reading window on desktop, simply minimize your window to an iPad size and you’ll be able to experience the site as such.)
This change makes ITH more adaptive than responsive, as we’re not fully fluid and instead have distinct breakpoints for tablet and mobile.
