    Tough break for Troy. Wishing for a speedy recovery. Looks like he won’t be able to participate in HH. Even if his is healed, I imagine they will hold him for precautionary reason for which I am all for.

    With that said, I am taking a break from The Scoop. I’ll be back on the day of the first exhibition basketball game. If I am impostered, it isn’t me.

    Not skipping out on Hoosier Football, but it drains me. I’ll leave it at that.

    Just a heads-up..Beware of the same headline if similar injury occurs to Jurkin.

    Ben – don’t leave. We are a community here that supports each other on the roller coaster ride that is IUFB as Jeremy accurately described.

    T-Will – all of the scoop is praying for your speedy recovery.
