Knight to be inducted into IU Hall of Fame

As I wrote for Saturday’s paper, the Indiana Athletics Department will induct Bob Knight into its hall of fame this November.

No, he hasn’t committed to coming back. No, he hasn’t expressly said no to his invitation to return.

This move — more than nine years after Knight was fired — is the first major public acknowledgment of the winningest men’s basketball coach in college basketball history by the university where he did most of his winning (and most of his controversy causing).

You may now comment. We’ll obviously have more thoughts on this to come.

To follow this story as it develops, you can refer to our special Bob Knight page.


News that isn’t too newsy for you

Kyrie Irving, the No. 9 player in the class of 2010 according to Rivals.com, announced the six schools he’s still considering today.

Indiana was included. But you already knew that, since Irving announced earlier that he will visit IU and Duke.

This at least gives you — and IU coaches — some context with which to frame the process ahead. In the video below, Irving once again says he’s only sure he’ll visit the those same two schools.

So, I ask you what somebody asked me in our live discussion on Thursday: How do you recruit Irving if you’re the IU staff? How do you counter Coach K — the current USA Olympic coach — and all that Duke has come to mean during Irving’s lifetime?

Rivals.com’s new 2011 rankings

Sorry for the delay in posting this, but I was swamped yesterday with work related to high school football. If you’re so inclined, take a gander at a story on spread offenses I produced for today’s paper. Indiana and Bill Lynch is mentioned.

When I talked to Rivals.com analyst Jerry Meyer at the beginning of July, after the site had first released its expanded 2011 rankings, he was not very high on Matt Carlino. And he was certainly not high on Cody Zeller. Or Austin Etherington. Or Jeremiah Davis.

Well, that’s changed.

Zeller is now the No. 35 player in the country, after not being ranked at the beginning of the July evaluation period.

Davis is now No. 40, up from No. 76.

Etherington and Carlino, the two Indiana verbal commits in the class of 2011, did not make the cut a month ago. Etherington is No. 86, while Carlino is No. 122.

Among other top prospects and Indiana targets, Michael Gilchrist continues his stranglehold on No. 1, Marquis Teague is at No. 2 and Rakeem Christmas is No. 5. Marshall Plumlee is No. 41, six spots up from July, and Deng Leek is No. 139.


Thursday chat, 11 a.m.

Just go here.

Talk to Hugh and I.

Make this Thursday great. Something special. Memorable.


Fitzpatrick leaving Indiana for AD job

Tim Fitzpatrick, an associate athletic director at Indiana University, has been named the athletic director at Texas A&M Corpus Christi.

Fitzpatrick came to Indiana from Army with Rick Greenspan in 2005. He became Greenspan’s top assistant and oversaw external operations of the department.

New athletic director Fred Glass reorganized the department earlier this year and put Fitzpatrick in charge of internal operations.

Fitzpatrick has wanted to run his own department and was a finalist for the open job at Rhode Island two years ago.

“I have prepared all my life to lead a Division I athletic program, and this is a great opportunity to serve a growing program in a wonderful community,” Fitzpatrick said in a new release. “Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and the Coastal Bend are great places to work and live. My family and I look forward to building a life with the Islanders.”

Texas A&M-Corpus Christi sponsors 11 Division I sports and competes in the Southland Conference.


The 2009-10 men’s basketball schedule

Indiana will play Maryland, Pittsburgh and Kentucky during a 12-day span to start December, highlighting the 2009-10 men’s basketball schedule released today.

Maryland comes to Assembly Hall on Dec. 1 as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. A week later, Indiana plays Pittsburgh at Madison Square Garden in New York City as part of the Jimmy V Classic.

Four days after New York, Kentucky comes to Bloomington.

Maryland and Pittsburgh each played in the NCAA Tournament last season, while Kentucky brought in the No. 1 recruiting class in the country.

Indiana will also not play a true road contest until a Jan. 6 Big Ten game at Ohio State. (more…)
