Patterson No. 78, Jurkin No. 137 in Rivals150

Both of Indiana’s verbal commitments were in’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

Fanhouse: IU paying $700K to Arkansas State

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.

Muhammad also likely out

Bill Lynch said on the Big Ten teleconference Monday afternoon that wide receiver Dre Muhammad is also likely to sit out Thursday’s opener against Towson. Muhammad has been out for most of the past week with an ankle injury, so he will be sitting out the game along with preseason All-Big Ten pick Tandon Doss.

Lynch said he’s still trying to figure out if and when to play true freshman Kofi Hughes. He has been practicing with the second team and will be a part of the travel roster, but he still has a cast on his hand. Lynch said whether Hughes plays in the opener or not will be determined “by the flow of the game.”

If Hughes doesn’t play, expect former quarterback Connor Creevey to see some action in four and five receiver sets. He moved to the position during camp and has shown a good understanding at the position. With Doss out, redshirt freshman Duwyce Wilson becomes the third starter. With Muhammad also out, redshirt freshman Jamonne Chester becomes the fourth wide receiver. If Hughes can’t play, Creevey is the next in line.

1991 IU-Kentucky game to air on Big Ten Network

The Big Ten Network is premiering a new slate of “Big Ten Greatest Games,” and one of them involves the Hoosiers.

Indiana’s 13-10 win against Kentucky in 1991, highlighted by Vaughn Dunbar’s 147 yards and a go-ahead touchdown, will premiere at 6 p.m. on Sept. 17.

Here is the full slate of games:

CHICAGO – Featuring bitter rivalries, bowl victories, down-to-the-wire finishes and star-making performances, the fourth season of The Big Ten’s Greatest Games premieres Friday. New episodes will air at 6 PM ET for 13 straight Fridays this fall.

This list of classics features Big Ten fans’ most commonly requested games over the past year. The 2005 Ohio State-Penn State thriller was the fan favorite. (more…)

Doss out for opener

Tandon Doss’s groin injury kept him off of the depth chart released Monday morning and will now apparently keep him out of Thursday’s game.

Indiana coach Bill Lynch confirmed after practice Monday that Doss will not play in Thursday’s 7:30 p.m. season opener against Towson.

“Tandon is not going to play,” Lynch said. “He’s been day-to-day, but I thought in fairness to him and probably the other guys, he’s just not making the progress that he needs to to play Thursday night at full speed. It’s a long year, and it’s the type of injury that we don’t want it to be a lingering injury throughout the year, so we kind of made the decision today after the injury report that he won’t play on Thursday.”

The Hoosiers will instead start redshirt freshman wide receiver Duwyce Wilson in his place. Junior Dre Muhammad was still out of Monday’s practice with an ankle injury, so he would appear unlikely to return. That would likely mean that redshirt freshman Jamonne Chester would step in in four-wide receiver sets. Doss’s injury makes it appear more likely that true freshman Kofi Hughes could see time. He’s listed as one of the three backups on Monday’s depth chart. (more…)

Depth chart released

Indiana released it’s game notes on Monday morning, which means the first official depth chart of the season. Not a lot of surprises, but Aaron Price is listed as the starter at left guard. Price and Damisch were the guards since the opening of camp, though for some reason I always suspected Pagan and Faulkner would win at least one of the jobs between them. Didn’t happen. Also, Kofi Hughes is the only freshman on the two-deep. Richard Council and Matt Ernest are listed as the starting cornerbacks and Nick Freeland is listed as the starting kicker.

The full depth chart follows: (more…)
