    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.
