Lynch: Fisher won’t play this week

Cornerback Ray Fisher wasn’t on the depth chart released by Indiana this afternoon, and Bill Lynch said on this radio show that Fisher won’t play this week.

“He’s not gonna play this week,” Lynch said. “He hurt his knee on the opening kickoff of the game. It’s unbelievable. He had an MRI done today, and unless something really strange happens, we don’t expect him to play this week.”


Lynch: We’ve made contact with the Big Ten

Indiana’s Bill Lynch said on his radio show Monday night that Indiana has made contact with the Big Ten over the controversial calls in Saturday’s game against Iowa.

“We’ve made contact with the Big Ten,” Lynch said. “We are certainly confident that it will be handled appropriately.”

The key call that infuriated Lynch at the time and Indiana fans was a touchdown catch by Terrance Turner that was overturned by video replay.


L.A. Times columnist says something’s fishy.

Does this here look like a catch to you?

(Herald-Times photographer Chris Howell caught this picture of the second disputed Terrance Turner touchdown catch. It was ruled a touchdown on the field but over-turned by the replay officials.)

Not sure if I want to contribute to this conspiracy theory or not, but Los Angeles Times columnist Chris Dufresne floated the notion in his column that refs are giving preferential treatment to teams with BCS hopes.

He’s not saying they are, he’s not saying they’re not. And for the record I’m not either. Plus, keep in mind one of the two touchdown reversals didn’t matter because Damarlo Belcher scored on the next play, and Iowa still won by 18 points. But this is definitely worth adding to the discussion.


Polk on depth chart, Fisher isn’t

Indiana fans, Monday’s depth chart has good news and bad news for you.

The good news is Nick Polk, who missed Saturday’s game with an ankle injury suffered in Thursday’s practice, is back on the depth chart as the starting free safety. The bad news is Ray Fisher’s name is nowhere to be found, either at cornerback or kick/punt returner. Fisher suffered a knee injury on the opening kickoff of Saturday’s game and didn’t return. Adrian Burks is listed ahead of Richard Council in his place at cornerback. Running back Demetrius McCray is listed as the other kick returner with Tandon Doss and Polk is listed as the second punt returner behind Doss.

Linebacker Will Patterson and cornerback Donnell Jones are both listed as starters after going into last week questionable with injuries.

Jerimy Finch, who didn’t make the trip last week because of a hamstring injury, is not on the depth chart his week either. Collin Taylor and Matt Kurz are the backup safeties behind Polk and Austin Thomas. The depth chart follows.

Selby’s mother confirms Indiana visit

Rivals.com’s Jerry Meyer reported Friday that five-star guard Josh Selby would take an official visit to Indiana on Nov. 14. Selby’s mother, Maeshon Witherspoon, confirmed that to the Herald-Times on Sunday night.

Selby visited Kansas on Oct. 16 for the Jayhawks’ Late Night in the Phog. Witherspoon said that trip went very well.

Witherspoon said Selby will also visit Kentucky, Miami and Syracuse. Those visits will happen, she said, after Selby’s high school team (Lake Clifton in Baltimore) begins its season.

“We’re going to be looking at team chemistry and how the coach deals with his players,” Witherspoon said.
Witherspoon said Selby would be in Bloomington Nov. 14 and 15, meaning he would miss Indiana’s season opener against Howard on the 13th.


Ohio State at Indiana soccer

FINAL — OVERTIME

7:26: Indiana suffers another heartbreaking loss in overtime. A ball goes through the box and Daniel Kelly can’t find it. Buckeye on the back post fires the ball under keeper Nemanja Kostic and a teammate ensures the ball stays in the net. BUCKEYES 1, HOOSIERS 0

END OF REGULATION

We’ve got free soccer now as Ohio State threw a couple of scares into IU down the stretch, but no harm done. We play two 10-minutes overtimes — one goal will end it. HOOSIERS 0, BUCKEYES 0

SECOND HALF

15:00: There have been a couple risky balls in the box for each team, but nobody has really gotten a foot on anything dangerous. HOOSIERS 0, BUCKEYES 0

31:00: Second half same as the first, a little better for IU, for Ohio State a little bit worse. Hoosiers have shown much more offense so far in the second half, though the best chance was Andy Adlards 25-yard blast. HOOSIERS 0, BUCKEYES 0

HALFTIME

Ohio State has really had the better of the run of play, outshooting Indiana 4-3. Hoosier goalkeeper Nemanja Kostic has four saves, while the Buckeyes’ Matt Lampson has just one. Not a real strong performance by IU, but this has been a second-half team, at least scoring-wise. HOOSIERS 0, BUCKEYES 0

FIRST HALF

12:00: What excitement there has been so far is largely courtesy of Will Bruin, who earned a yellow card for crashing into the OSU keeper on a header back and setting up some pushing and shoving. Bruin moments later broke through the defense and had his shot deflected out of bounds. HOOSIERS 0, BUCKEYES 0

30:00: As you might expect, there is no score through the first 15 minutes, and IU is still looking for its first shot. Of course, the Hoosiers have scored just two first-half goals this season, so no surprise. Buckeyes have two shots, one of which required a leaping save by IU keeper Nemanja Kostic. Matt Wiet started in place of Rich Balchan, who injured his ankle against Evansville. HOOSIERS 0, BUCKEYES 0

PREGAME

I’m at sunny Armstrong Stadium this afternoon for a key Big Ten clash between the Hoosiers and Buckeyes. Both teams have two losses in conference play, but could stay in the title hunt with a win. Penn State is the leader at 3-1-1 with a win over Wisconsin (3-3), but the Nittany Lions visit Bloomington in the regular-season finale Friday, so a win here and a win there would put IU on top.

Of course, the bigger picture for the Hoosiers is building some momentum and NCAA resume in these final games. Stay tuned for updates and/or follow me on Twitter.
