Another step forward

Much like what Penn State has done with its Knight Center for Sports Journalism, Indiana University is now trying to become a leader in sports journalism and scholarship.

IU has created a National Sports Journalism Center, which features both academic and practical approaches. If the Center's website is any indication, IU is serious about pushing sports to the forefront of its already-excellent journalism school. Although the website just debuted this week, the Center opened back in January with the goal of "aspiring to become the nation's most comprehensive institute for the study of sports media."

The website looks great--a combination of academic issues and practical sports stuff from industry practitioners. Congratulations to IU for taking this step and for all other schools recognizing the value of sports media. Just one question ... where's the JSM blog on your list of sports media links?
