Hummel done for the year?

By   |   Friday, Feb. 20, 2009 - 6:35 PM   |   19 comments

It appears as though Purdue’s star forward Robbie Hummel could miss the rest of the season with the fractured vertebrae that has limited his availability for much of the season.

That’s what the Journal Courier of West Lafayette, among others, is now reporting.

After his team had been thrashed 72-54 on Tuesday night, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo commented that without Hummel (who was playing in his second game since returning from originally hurting his back) the Boilermakers were a good team; with him, a special team.

Lynch shuffles his staff slightly

By   |   Friday, Feb. 20, 2009 - 4:25 PM   |   3 comments

Following a 3-9 season, Bill Lynch has made some small changes in the structure of his staff.

The major news is that Dennis Springer, the lone assistant brought into the program by Lynch, has been elevated to assistant head coach.

It’s difficult to know what that means, exactly. Lynch was the assistant head coach to Terry Hoeppner; that title seemed as much as anything a nod toward Lynch’s considerable experience as a head coach. This move makes it clear that Lynch wants Springer to have more influence within the staff.

The rest of the offensive staff stays the same (though tight ends coach Kyle Conner will assist with the offensive line; this makes sense given the limited role tight ends play in IU’s offense.) Matt Canada is still the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach. It’s unclear if he’ll continue to call plays.

On the defensive side of the ball, co-defensive coordinator Joe Palcic will now coach the entire secondary. Former safeties coach Mike Yeager becomes the linebackers coach, while George Ricumstrict will shift his focus from the backers to the defensive ends. That leaves co-defensive coordinator Brian George to concentrate on the defensive tackles.

Here’s the whole release from IU, and a list of the current staff and their positions:
