Indiana released this video of Kevin Wilson discussing spring practice on its website during Saturday night’s basketball game. Some important points.
— Offensive lineman Gregory Lewis and safety Drew Hardin have both been dismissed from the program, Wilson said, because of violations of team rules.
– Tight end Tanner Kearns has left the program. Defensive end Adam Kranda, who signed in the Class of 2012 but didn’t enroll in the fall because of personal reasons, still has not enrolled and is not expected to.
– Safety Mark Murphy will be limited in spring practice because of surgery to repair an injured labrum. Offensive tackle Jason Spriggs is dealing with a minor hip issue and will take it easy at least until after spring break.
– Former tailback Nick Turner has rejoined the program as a walk-on. Turner had stayed at Indiana and has been on the track team since leaving the football program in Wilson’s first year. Wilson said there is no guarantee he will play, but he has been working out with the team since the winter.

Oue expectation is that CKW will run the program according to his vision and by supporting its values and rules. I fully support his judgment. He is obviously brining what we asked for.

I agree Tsau. We wanted someone to keep this team accountable, and we got it. Some people where very unfair to Wilson, saying he was a bully, and too rough, and abusing players, but I see it as he has his priorities straight. It’s in good hands, and still happy over this hire.

Totally off topic, but let’s enjoy football as we know it. A bill has been introduced in the Ill. legislature to limit tackling to one day per week in order to reduce the chance of concussions. Don’t know the odds of this bill becoming law, but the writing is on the wall. Not to weep, though. No helemts, minimum padding (knees, elbows, and a cup) and twenty men on a roster would still allow us a lot to cheer for. Normal-sized, all-around atheletes executing creative plays and the ever-popular Monday morning quartebacking about what play should have been called in that crucial situation.
