Lynch: “It looked like they both had it.”

Indiana head coach Bill Lynch said he “couldn’t see” the disputed interception late in Indiana’s 36-33 loss to Michigan.

But, he added, from where he stood it looked like simultaneous possession. Which generally results in the offense keeping the ball. Or so says the rule book.

Complete Pass
ARTICLE 6. Any forward pass is complete when caught by a player of the
passing team who is inbounds, and the ball continues in play unless completed
in the opponent’s end zone or the pass has been caught simultaneously
by opposing players. If a forward pass is caught simultaneously by opposing
players inbounds, the ball becomes dead and belongs to the passing team (Rule
2-2-7) (A.R. 2-2-7-III and A.R. 7-3-6-I-IX).

None of Indiana’s players offered a more extensive thought on the play, though Darius Willis smiled as if he wanted to.

The message, instead, went something like this: we didn’t execute on a couple of plays, and now we’ll go prepare to play Ohio State.

Lynch recited his mantra, “Play the next play,” and said that the Hoosiers would work on getting better in the coming days.

Injury report: Johnson out

Indiana’s latest injury report shows Darius Johnson, a pleasant surprise at DE this year, won’t make the trip to Ann Arbor this weekend. He’s out with a shoulder injury, meaning Indiana will take only four defensive ends into the Big House.

Jammie Kirlew and Greg Middleton, who I think will be key should Indiana pull an upset, will play most of the snaps. Deonte Mack and Terrance Thomas will rotate in.

There’s also got to be concern for Indiana on the other side of the ball, as left guard Justin Pagan and right tackle James Brewer are also listed with ankle injuries. Both are probable though, as is Cody Faulkner, the veteran guard who hasn’t played yet due to a shoulder injury.

Of course Michigan has it’s own injury issues on the offensive line, forcing Rich Rodriguez to make several changes.

Here’s IU’s full injury report:

Player                                      Injury                  Status
Fred Jones, DE                     Foot                     Out
Darius Johnson, DE            Shoulder             Out
Chad Sherer, LB                   Hamstring         Questionable
Zach Davis-Walker, RB      Shoulder            Probable
Cody Faulkner, OL              Shoulder            Probable
Justin Pagán, OL                 Ankle                  Probable
Donnell Jones, CB              Hamstring          Probable
James Brewer, OL              Ankle                   Probable


Where oh where could he have learned that?

Former Indiana player and coach Jim Crews has been fired as the head coach at Army just three weeks before practice was set to begin.

ESPN’s Andy Katz is now reporting that Crews may have yelled at a student.

“There was this one thing that came to my attention that I definitely couldn’t overlook,” Anderson said. “There were things, and there was one thing in particular that came to me that was overarching that led me to my conclusion.”

Multiple sources close to the situation told ESPN.com that Crews yelled at a cadet. Anderson said that incident wasn’t “the tipping point but contributed.”

The local Times-Herald Record, meanwhile, has reported that Crews may have been dismissed for an on-court issue with a player:

According to West Point sources, Crews may have been fired, in part, to putting his hands on a men’s basketball player during a workout or practice. Crews has not returned phone calls.
