The Big Ten Network will formally announce the divisions for the 12-team Big Ten at 7 p.m. tonight in a 90-minute television special on, of course, the Big Ten Network.
CHICAGO – The Big Ten Network will air the official live announcement of the Big Ten football divisions with Commissioner Jim Delany at 7 p.m. ET tonight. The show will also be streamed live at BigTenNetwork.com
Lead studio host Dave Revsine will host the football special and be joined by analysts Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith. Confirmed guests will include athletic directors David Brandon of Michigan, Mark Hollis of Michigan State, Gene Smith of Ohio State, Tom Osborne of Nebraska, and other Big Ten Network analysts.
However, ESPN’s Andy Katz is reporting what these divisions will be:
Obviously this would keep Purdue and Indiana playing in the regular-season finale, which may have been the biggest factor in all of this for the Hoosiers. Also do not discount that Indiana continues to have Ohio State, Wisconsin, Purdue and Illinois in Memorial Stadium every-other season. In terms of competitiveness, this seems fair.
Cody Zeller will be on campus the last weekend in October (Oct. 29-31), the Indy Star is reporting.
Indiana is getting the last official visit from Zeller.
He’ll be on campus for the Northwestern game as well as Halloween weekend. The latter is as good of a reason as any to link to our friend ChronicHoosiers’ pitch to Zeller from early July.

Indiana released it’s official injury report Tuesday evening. Don’t want to be too presumptive here, but it seems that players who are expected to redshirt (i.e. Tim O’Conner, Leneil Himes and Logan Young) were left off the list. No real surprises on the list, but this apparently means running back Zach Davis-Walker is good to go.
The injury report follows:
Chris Adkins, S Ankle Out
Tandon Doss, WR Groin Out
Dre Muhammad, WR Ankle Out
Andrew McDonald, OL Knee Probable
Mike Leonard is doing a story on this for the news side today, but figured we could post this info on the blog. From IU:
BLOOMINGTON, Ind.– Road construction is underway on Bloomington’s IN 45/46 Bypass, and IU Athletics has been working with the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), local law enforcement and Milestone Contractors, L.P. (the firm heading the widening of the 45/46 Bypass) to limit traffic congestion on football game days. IU Athletics is also enacting a comprehensive communication effort to inform fans of possible delays, alternative routes and construction updates. On game days, Indiana Athletics encourages all ticket holders to arrive at Memorial Stadium as early as possible.
Both of Indiana’s verbal commitments were in Rivals.com’s top 150, announced today.
Ron Patterson came in at No. 78, and Peter Jurkin was No. 137.
Patterson may be a little low, though it’s hard to judge the different between No. 50 and No. 100. As I Tweeted earlier, dunks are highly valued and defense is not. So is staying uncommitted (the sites rely on a hit-based business model and devoted fanbases + uncommitted prospects = lots of hits).
Here is where the rest of Indiana’s targets fell:
10 — Hanner Perea
17 — Yogi Ferrell
24 — Gary Harris
25 — D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera
39 — Jeremy Hollowell
56 — A.J. Hammons
71 — T.J. Warren
92 — Mitch McGary
99 — DeJuan Marrero
118 — Glenn Robinson III
137 — Peter Jurkin
Indiana will pay Arkansas State $700,000 to come to Memorial Stadium this season, Fanhouse’s Brett McMurphy is reporting.
Arkansas State, interestingly enough, is actually making $1.7 million off two games: it’ll get a cool million to play Auburn.
I am trying to find out how much IU is paying Towson for Thursday’s contest.
By the way, I have not plugged this enough: like us on Facebook. Don’t worry, we won’t bombard you with links. But the loss of Korman has hurt Dustin’s self-confidence, and having lots of friends may help the guy out.
UPDATE, 7:12 p.m.
Hey, Dustin Dopirak here. Just got off the phone with Fred Glass. He says the $700,000 figure for the Arkansas State guarantee is correct and the $750,000 figure he initially provided when the schedule was released in January was something of a misrememberance.
