IU’s other athletes to take the field

The vast majority of Indiana’s athletes never get a chance to take the field in front of 50,000 fans. Outside of the football and men’s basketball team, few of them ever see a tenth of that.

But on Saturday, they’ll get the chance, if only briefly. Indiana athletic director Fred Glass said that before Saturday’s game against Michigan, at the time before the game  that the school’s freshmen in attendance usually run across the field, it will be the rest of the school’s student athletes that dash through Memorial Stadium.

“It’s kind of keeping with our 24 sports, one team theme,” Glass said. “And I know a lot of our teams and a lot of our athletes are jacked up about this.”

Freeland still out, Jones probable

Kicker Nick Freeland will miss his third straight game with a hip injury according to IU’s injury report Thursday. However, most of the other players who were in any sort of jeopardy will apparently play.

Safety Donnell Jones, who has practiced with a yellow jersey most of this week, is listed as probable with a knee injury. Senior linebacker Tyler Replogle, who also practiced in a yellow jersey after missing last week’s game with a concussion, is not listed on the injury report.

Safety Chris Adkins, who was still on crutches this week with an ankle injury, is of course, still listed as out.

The more you know…

Part of the reason we weren’t exactly sure how to cover yesterday’s Cody Zeller Facebook group kinda-sorta story was that we didn’t know exactly what the ramifications were or could be. Our latest NCAA Manual is from 2009 and it doesn’t say a lot in there about social media.

In addition to the Facebook group, there was another social media incident in which freshman Victor Oladipo tweeted at Yogi Ferrell and asked if he was coming for a visit to Indiana this weekend. So for clarification on both situations, we consulted the NCAA. Based on what we got from them, Oladipo seems to be in the clear for the Ferrell tweets, and would seem to be OK on the Facebook group situation, though there’s slightly more gray area there.

The NCAA’s explanation for player-recruit relations and social media follows. (more…)

Chappell a semifinalist for Campbell Trophy

From IU Sports Info:


BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana fifth-year senior quarterback Ben Chappell has been selected as one of 121 semifinalists for the 2010 William V. Campbell Trophy, the National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame (NFF) announced today. The Campbell Trophy, endowed by HealthSouth, is awarded based on academic, athletic ability and character aspects.

“This year’s Campbell Trophy semifinalists embody the National Football Foundation’s mission of building leaders through football,” said NFF Chairman Archie Manning whose sons Peyton (1997 Campbell Trophy winner) and Eli were named NFF National Scholar-Athletes in 1997 and 2003, respectively. “They are standouts in the classroom and on the field and have become leaders in their respective communities. Each school should take great pride in being represented by such well-rounded young men who will undoubtedly go on to do great things in life.” (more…)
