Wilson looking for a steady hand at quarterback #iufb

CHICAGO — He doesn’t necessarily care how far his quarterback can throw the ball, and he won’t be easily impressed by deep shots to the end zone.

Kevin Wilson is more interested in finding a quarterback that can manage his offense, execute plays with confidence and take care of the football.

When preseason camp opens in Bloomington a week from today, junior college transfer Richard Lagow and junior Zander Diamont will be among the quarterbacks trying to show the Indiana coach they can be that guy.

Speaking at the Big Ten’s annual media day event on Tuesday, Wilson said he’s not ready to name a replacement for Nate Sudfeld, the program’s career passing leader.

Instead, he’s looking to preside over a battle.

“I just don’t think it’s right to anoint someone until they’ve earned it,” Wilson said. “…. I was at Oklahoma when Adrian Peterson walked in the first day. He was different. But he didn’t start till game four or five … You’ve got to earn it. You’ve got to earn their respect, especially at quarterback.

“It’s not being coy. I’ve got some guys who have been in that program from three years, busting their tail every day and one of them didn’t even practice in the spring.” (more…)

Kevin Wilson transcript from Big Ten Media Days #iufb

THE MODERATOR: Our next coach is Indiana’s Kevin Wilson. Wilson enters his sixth season at the helm after leading the Hoosiers to the 2015 New Era Pinstripe Bowl, the program’s first post season appearance since 2007. Indiana returned 17 starters from last year’s team, including eight on both offense and defense.

Coach, go ahead with opening statement.

COACH WILSON: All right. Thank you. Good morning. Everybody awake? We good to go?

Like a lot of us, again, our thoughts with not just the Nebraska and Michigan State football families, but I had a chance at the National Football Foundation to actually sit with Mike Sadler’s parents a couple years ago. We had a player up for that deal.

So as a dad and two kids in college and several kids in high school, just feel for their families. And as a program, we send our prayers for those guys.

Good to be here. I think we’re continuing to grow as a program.

We appreciate the opportunity the administration has committed to us to continue to advance our program. We got a lot of things going on from facilities to stabilizing of our staff to recruiting and whatnot. So we are encouraged where we are at.

We are not pleased where we’re at. We’ve been very competitive, a little bit inconsistent the last few years and let a few games slip away that we’ve been in, but we played some very good football and what I think is a tremendous brand in college football. A great bracket in the Big 10 East, just a great bracket in Big 10 because the West is awfully strong as well. (more…)

Wilson hopes Patrick will be cleared by Big Ten opener #iufb

CHICAGO — Kevin Wilson fanned the hype surrounding Camion Patrick after IU’s win in the Old Oaken Bucket game last November.

Weeks ahead of a new season, Wilson isn’t stopping now.

Wilson is hopeful Patrick will be recovered from a torn ACL in time for Big Ten play in early October. When Patrick eventually is ready to join Indiana’s active roster, Wilson believes he could be Indiana’s top skill player.

“We do have a lot of backs and we do have a lot of receivers,” Wilson said. “And I think he’s the best of all of them.”

That’s high praise from Wilson, who is typically careful not to overhype players, especially those who have not yet played for him.

Patrick, apparently, is different. (more…)
