Saturday football report

Indiana began two-a-days today, with practices nine and 10 (of 29 total before the season opener against Eastern Kentucky on Thursday, Sept. 3).

We were at the morning practice. The afternoon practice, a controlled scrimmage, was not open to the media.

A few tidbits from the morning:

  • Though head coach Bill Lynch said no player has suffered a serious injury during camp, several rested both Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Offensive linemen Justin Pagan and James Brewer were inactive for both sessions, as were freshman kicker Mitch Ewald and punter Chris Hagerup. Lynch said Brewer, the 6-foot-8, 339-pound right tackle, has had shin problems but should not miss much time. The Hoosiers absolutely need him healthy.
  • Ben Chappell continued to look sharp passing the ball. He has terrific touch, which he showed off by hitting Dre Muhammad on a deep pass through the seam for a  touchdown. Muhammad, a Purdue transfer who is originally from Fort Wayne, has been one of this camp’s standouts. Though Indiana will use fewer receivers this season, Muhammad could earn his way onto the field as a Ray Fisher-type player who excels on screens. Lynch loves his competitiveness.
  • Lynch said he would use the scrimmage to see how the young players adapt to near-game speed. With three other two-a-day sessions next week, the staff is entering the period during which they must begin making decisions about which players will practice to play and which ones will join the scout team. So the freshmen were on the spot Saturday. “The more opportunities you give them early, the more you learn about them,” Lynch said.
  • Earlier this fall I wrote in the paper about how Indiana’s offense stayed late after practice to run through a few plays in rapid fashion. Offensive coordinator Matt Canada explained the drill today. During the spring, he decided to punish mistakes (penalties, fumbles) with up-downs. He thought that worked, but wanted something more corrective than punitive for the fall. So what happens after each practice is that the offense runs any play it messed up three times in quick succession. “That way they have a good memory of that play and don’t have to go into the locker room thinking about the mistake,” Canada said.

Crean having knee surgery

Indiana coach Tom Crean has revealed on Twitter that he’ll have surgery today to repair a torn meniscus.

Here are his tweets:

From the Department of better me than any of our players…….I am having knee surgery today.

For those that were asking me why I was limping, now we know. A MRI I had on Tuesday revealed a torn meniscus in my right knee

I have no idea what caused it but all the running Jayd Grossman and J.D. Campbell did with me has caught up with me.

OK. Let me interject here. Ever happen to catch a video of yourself on the sideline, coach? All that frantic pacing and stomping and Coke drinking may have had something to do with the injury. Back to the tweets.

I know Dr. Ahlfeld hasnt played for the Hoosiers in awhile but I hope he has good hands and doesnt turn it over under pressure. Lol

No twitpics today. I feel like I am wearing my 4 year old daughters socks and if I never have to wear a hospital gown again it will be okay


Pacers will play an exhibition game at the Hall

According to this press release:

PACERS TO PLAY PRESEASON GAME IN BLOOMINGTON

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Pacers will travel to Bloomington, Ind., to play a preseason game against the San Antonio Spurs at Indiana University’s Assembly Hall, Friday, Oct. 23 at 7:00 p.m.

The Pacers last played in Bloomington when an ABA playoff game was held at Assembly Hall in 1972.

“As part of the great basketball heritage here in the state of Indiana, we are excited to play a game in Bloomington,” said Rick Fuson, Pacers Sports & Entertainment’s Chief Operating Officer. “This is a great opportunity to partner with Indiana University to further that strong tradition.”

“We are unbelievably excited that the Indiana Pacers have decided to include Bloomington and IU in their preseason schedule,” added Fred Glass, Athletic Director of Indiana University. “This is a special opportunity for our community to see the very best basketball in the world, and we are so pleased that we could play a part in bringing it to Bloomington.”

Pacers Season Ticket Holders, along with Indiana University Season Ticket Holders and Indiana University Students, will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to the game prior to the general on-sale.

Complete ticket information will be announced at a later date.


Four freshmen visit with media

Four of the six incoming freshmen met with the assembled media Thursday afternoon at Assembly Hall to talk about their experience since arriving on campus.

Here are some notes:

— Christian Watford said he talks frequently with Maurice Creek, one of two freshmen (along with Bawa Muniru) that could not be on campus during the second summer school session. Creek and Muniru are both awaiting word on whether or not they have been cleared by the NCAA. Watford said he tells Creek to keep his head up and stay focused on doing what he needs to do.

— Bobby Capobianco said the summer workouts have been brutal, namely because of a fresh wound. Apparently Verdell Jones managed to stick two fingers in Capobianco’s eye the other day and scratched Capobianco’s cornea.

— Derek Elston said he was timid for the first several weeks, not wanting to make a mistake and draw the ire of the upperclassmen. Once he realized that was not going to happen, he said, he started to open up. He’s been mainly playing against Watford during workouts. Elston said that has been a learning experience, because he never had to defend players of Watford’s size who also had his ball-handing ability. (more…)
