Richard Lagow will start at QB vs. Florida International #iufb

By the end of the first week of fall camp, it was clear that Richard Lagow was Indiana’s top option at quarterback.

He received the bulk of the reps during ensuing practices, the team gravitated toward his stewardship and Lagow demonstrated continued development to warrant his place atop the depth chart.

Now, Lagow is positioned to make his Hoosiers debut as Indiana’s starting quarterback.

IU coach Kevin Wilson confirmed Friday that Lagow will start Thursday’s season opener at Florida International, answering one of the key questions of Indiana’s off-season. At 6-feet-6, 240 pounds, Lagow’s physique appears virtually identical to his predecessor, Nate Sudfeld. The Texas native has the arm strength to command the offense, and as the calendar flips from preseason to Week 1, Lagow will have the opportunity to do exactly that.

“He’s been the one,” Wilson said. “He’s gotten every one rep except when we rotate Zander Diamont or Danny Cameron in there. He’s kind of been the one. It wasn’t that a formal announcement needed to be made. The team has been practicing and knows it. The timing’s been there, so we actually evolved to that after about the seventh practice.”

Lagow, formerly of both UConn and Oklahoma State, has never thrown a pass at the Football Bowl Subdivision level. He did, however, complete 66 percent of his passes last fall at Cisco (Texas) Community College, where he amassed 2,285 yards and passed for 21 touchdowns with 10 interceptions.

Although statistics for IU’s team practices are not publicly available, Wilson said Lagow has been statistically excellent this month at Indiana. (more…)

Big Ten releases conference schedule; IU starts with 3 at home

For the first time since the 2010-11 season, Indiana will open the Big Ten season at Assembly Hall.

The Big Ten released its men’s basketball conference schedule on Thursday and Indiana is due for a prolonged stay at home to begin league play.

IU has not had a three-game conference homestand to start league play since the 1933-34 season. That changes this season.

The Hoosiers begin their conference title defense on Dec. 28 against Nebraska. After a brief visit to Indianapolis to play Louisville on Dec. 31, IU returns to Assembly Hall on Jan. 3 against Wisconsin. Mark your calendars for that one — a matchup between two of the league’s title favorites for 2017.

IU’s homestand closes on Jan. 7 against Illinois. The Hoosiers first Big Ten road trip is to Maryland on Jan. 10.

With the frontloaded home schedule, IU will close the season with four of its final five games of the regular season on the road. The Hoosiers will be the first team since Northwestern in 2009 to close the league schedule with that kind of stretch.

It begins with a trip to Minnesota on Feb. 15, followed by a visit to Iowa on Feb. 21.

IU will host Senior Day at Assembly Hall against Northwestern on either Feb. 25 or 26. The Hoosiers will wrap the regular season with games at Purdue (Feb. 28) and Ohio State (March 4).

IU and Purdue played only once last season, but will be back on a two-play rotation in 2017. The Boilermakers open the series with a visit to Assembly Hall on Feb. 9.

Indiana makes a return trip to Wisconsin on Feb. 5.

The Big Ten will stage its annual conference tournament in Washington D.C. for the first time this season

Dates, times and a full television schedule will be announced at a later date, as will IU’s full slate of non-conference opponents.

For the full conferece schedule in list form, follow along after the jump. (more…)
