Hello everyone. This is Evan Frederick. Currently I am a graduate student at Indiana University, helping the HT for the spring. Should be an interesting scrimmage today. Memorial Stadium is basically a wind tunnel right now. I will keep you up to date on any interesting happenings.

    Is anyone there, Doug? I think your scrimmage coverage might be trumped by the Obama visit. Sorry, man.

  • Doug says:

    Nothing – not even the potential next leader of the free world – trumps an Indiana football scrimmage, Emily (i.e. resident Purdue fan). There is a raucous crowd of perhaps several dozen people taking in this momentous event.

  • Juan Blanco says:

    How are the young DB’s looking? Is the inexperience there padding Chapp’s numbers a bit?

  • chad malott says:

    When is this years cream and crimson football game?

  • Doug says:

    Saturday at 2 p.m.

  • Doug says:

    Juan, I think the young DBs are looking pretty good. IU’s defense is giving up the short passes, but not allowing much of anything downfield. The big question mark, though, is the level of wide receivers they’re covering right now. Without Hardy, Bailey, Means or Turner, IU doesn’t have a Big Ten-quality group at this point.
