Here’s Jared’s preview of the Indiana-Central Michigan game. With the Hoosiers coming off a win, somehow I doubt this one will match the 80 reader comments on Jared’s preview last week.

FINAL

It’s all over, and Indiana goes scoreless for the final 109:54 of this one for the tie. HOOSIERS 1, WILDCATS 1

END OF FIRST OVERTIME

Indiana came out guns blazing, but couldn’t push in the game-winner, then survived a couple Kentucky scares in the final two minutes of OT. We have 10 more golden goal minutes to decide this one. HOOSIERS 1, WILDCATS 1

Q & A with Fred Glass

By   |   Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2008 - 4:08 PM   |   5 comments

Editor’s note: Fred Glass sat down with The Herald-Times Tuesday to answer some questions about his new job as Indiana’s athletic director and the challenges ahead.

Q: How will you approach your first few months on the job?

A: You know, when this whole thing started, I re-read “Being Lucky,” which is his (Herman B Wells) memoir. When he, at a young age, was made the Dean of the Business School and didn’t have much background in academic administration, he said “I just talked to everybody I could talk to.” That’s what I want to do. I’ve already started laying the groundwork. I’ve asked all the coaches if they’ll meet one-on-one before the first of the year. Meet with all the athletic senior staff one-on-one before the first of the year. Identify key donors, alumni folks, boosters so there won’t be a lack of stakeholders represented. I think that will help me a lot (to) get a sense of the landscape. So based on that and hopefully an analysis of best practices in other departments, we’ll really start charting a course and a vision that people buy into. And I think we’ve got so many resources here at the university that we can utilize that maybe haven’t been as utilized in the past, including the business school and some of the tools they would have. There’s a lot of ways to leverage our resources and get more bang for our buck. That’s a big passion of mine, to integrate the department with the university and vice versa.

Q: Do you have knowledge of NCAA compliance?

A: I have been in sports, and the business of sports and sports regulation. But am I an expert on the fine points of NCAA and Big Ten compliance? I’m not. But I think this is a team sport. I think I bring some attributes to the party that are a little different than you might typically expect in a sitting athletic director or senior person in an athletic department. But by the same token I don’t have that blocking, tackling knowledge. But that’s why you have a department. I think taken together we’ll be able to meet the demands of the department. Like I said, a lot of it’s about vision, leadership. Compliance is job one. Following the rules, and making sure that Indiana is known for following the rules again, is my prime goal.

Evan White officially a Hoosier

By   |   Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2008 - 10:15 PM   |   15 comments

Evan White, the freshman who was on an extended tryout with the men’s basketball team, has earned a spot. He’ll officially be added to the roster on Wednesday. Tom Crean’s team now has six walkons. White is a 6-foot guard from Harding, in Fort Wayne.



Bill Lynch presser updates

By   |   Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2008 - 1:03 PM   |   20 comments

Couple of injury updates: Cody Faulkner and Andrew McDonald will return to the offensive line. Andrew Means and Kellen Lewis are practicing a bit.

Left tackle Rodger Saffold’s out. Safety Austin Thomas is out. Those are tough losses for this team.

Thomas is getting an MRI today. It probably looks like he might be out for the year with an ACL injury, Lynch says.

Ben Chappell was pretty beat up after Saturday’s win against Northwestern. His injury: all of the above. He’s OK now. “You know Ben. He’s got a big smile on his face,” Lynch says.

Lynch isn’t sure who plays QB on Saturday if both Chappell and Lewis are healthy. “We feel like we have two good quarterbacks.”

——-

Lynch isn’t sure what caused the strange delay of game penalties on Saturday. They apparently stemmed from mis-communication between the center and the quarterback. Remember that Pete Saxon has just recently moved to center.
