Washington Post: Ben Chappell cut

The Washington Post is reporting that former Indiana and Bloomington South quarterback Ben Chappell has been cut by the Washington Redskins.


Wilson: Quarterback rotation won’t be scripted

Kevin Wilson continued to indicate at his press conference Tuesday that there will be a quarterback rotation in Saturday’s opener against Ball State. He said that changes at the position, however, will not be scripted.

“We’ll go through the week and settle on where we’re starting,” Wilson said. “I don’t think we’ll go and say after two drives we’ll go to the next guy. As the week plays out, we’d like to settle down, ‘Here’s where we start.’ We’ll see how that guy handles the situation. I think each of them have subtle-ly different strengths, things they can bring. It’s not going to be like it’s scripted after the second drive, this guy’s in. We’ll kind of see how it goes. I don’t want a guy to make one mistake and feel like he’s going to be yanked. We’ll see. If we need a spark or some energy, we’ll see how it’s going to play out.”

Wilson reiterated that there are things he likes about redshirt sophomores Dusty Kiel and Edward Wright-Baker as well as freshman Tre Roberson. There’s just one thing none of the three have shown. (more…)


Hoosier Morning

Again… this will get better … bear with me.

1. HOOSIERS HQ

Football served as a vehicle to get Indiana defensive end Darius Johnson off the streets of inner-city Detroit, I wrote.

Kevin Wilson said it’s possible the Hoosiers could play as many as three quarterbacks in Saturday’s opener, I wrote.

2. INDIANA FOOTBALL

On Kevin Wilson’s radio show last night, he said that the Indiana bench will now be on the side of the student section, the Indianapolis Star’s Terry Hutchens wrote.

Iraq war veteran Kevin Bush wasn’t on the depth chart that was released on Monday, and he realized it’s because he didn’t play well enough in preseason practice, the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel’s Pete DiPrimio wrote. (more…)


Kevin Wilson: Three QB’s could play in opener

The depth chart that was released on Monday had two names as possible starters at quarterback, but Kevin Wilson said Monday that doesn’t mean that only two names are involved.

The Indiana football coach was asked for a timetable in which he will name a starter, and once again said that he has no timetable and that he could play multiple quarterbacks in the opener. He was asked if he anticipated playing two.

“Maybe three,” Wilson said. “I don’t know. We’re just not as consumed with it as you guys. They’re all doing good. No one’s really separated.”

That means, of course, that not only do redshirt sophomores Dusty Kiel and Edward Wright-Baker still have an opportunity to play, but true freshman Tre Roberson is still in the mix.

Roberson didn’t take snaps with the first team in the most recent scrimmaging and he is not listed on the depth chart with Wright-Baker and Kiel, but Wilson has said throughout the preseason that he’s been impressed with his playmaking ability. (more…)


Mitch McGary shatters backboard, needs stitches.

So Mitch McGary eliminated Indiana from his list sometime ago, and it’s sort of a stretch to put this on the blog then. But I’m putting it on anyway because, well, you kind of have to see this.

McGary was in a dunk contest, shattered the backboard all over himself and needed 37 stitches. Also, Dave Telep makes a cameo. Here it is.


Indiana releases depth chart for Week 1

This surprises me more than a little bit. Indiana released a depth chart for Week 1. No, I really didn’t think Kevin Wilson was going to do that. Not in the least.

Anyway, unsurprisingly, there’s nothing definitive about the quarterback job. Dusty Kiel and Edward Wright-Baker are listed together on the depth chart separated by the word “or” which means no decision has been made yet.

Several players are conspicuously absent from the depth chart, apparently for injury reasons. Wide receiver Duwyce Wilson and Ted Bolser have both been battling unspecified injuries during preseason practice, and neither one is on the depth chart. Senior Dre Muhammad is listed as the starter in Wilson’s spot. Senior Max Dedmond is listed as the starting tight end.

Redshirt freshman Matt Perez is listed as the starting tailback followed by junior college transfer Stephen Houston. D’Angelo Roberts may not be on the two-deep, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t going to play. (more…)
