This release explains how the plan was conceived:
BLOOMINGTON, Ind.– Indiana University announced today that a new gameday traffic plan will be implemented for the 2009 Football season. The new plan is the product of a collaborative effort between Indiana University and several key partners.
“I would like to thank President McRobbie and the Board of Trustees for their leadership in focusing us all on the issue of gameday traffic,” said Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass. “I would also like to thank our great partners, including Commissioner Michael W. Reed and the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT); Superintendent Paul E. Whitesell, Ph.D. and the Indiana State Police; Sheriff James L. Kennedy and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department; Chief Michael Diekhoff and the Bloomington Police Department; Captain Jerry Minger and the Indiana University Police Department; Mayor Mark Kruzan and the City of Bloomington; and Gorove-Shade Associates traffic consultants.”

So the mainstream blog network has discovered that, in fact, Indiana does still have a football team. They have uniforms and everything, guys.
Dr. Saturday, part of Yahoo!’s blog network, is taking a look at coaches on the hot seats. As you might guess, Bill Lynch got his own post.
“Bill Lynch’s head-coaching tenure has been fairly free of overtly embarrassing sound bites or motivational tactics, but one quote from his press conference the week after last season’s Northwestern game, responding to a question about nagging delay-of-game penalties, stood out: “When we were getting booed, I was booing too, because it’s unacceptable.” Seriously? You joined in the booing, coach? And this was after what would turn out to be the team’s lone conference victory of the season.”
John M., from Crimson Quarry (one of the better Indiana-related blogs going), was asked for his take.
“As for the numbers, I don’t think there is any doubt that winning six or more games will save Lynch’s job. I find it hard to believe that he would survive a season with two or fewer wins. It’s tougher to handicap three, four or five wins without knowing who IU might beat or how competitive they were in the losses.”
Take this with the appropriate grain of salt, or as me just throwing another log on the fire. I am good either way.
Former Indiana forward Brandon McGee has been dismissed from the team at Auburn, according to this Rivals.com report.
No reason was given. The 6-foot-7 forward from Chicago played one season for the Hoosiers before joining the rest of his freshman class in the exodus that followed Kelvin Sampson’s departure and Tom Crean’s hiring. McGee actually stayed through the spring semester and was one of two players who remained on the roster. He was dismissed, though, for violation of team rules in late May, 2008. Jordan Crawford — He Who Dunked On LeBron — left the team not long after.
Bawa Muniru, one of two incoming Indiana basketball recruits who has yet to be cleared to play this season, has arrived in Bloomington.
He hasn’t been declared eligible by the NCAA — and there’s no timetable for when that might happen — but his guardian said Tuesday that Muniru had “done everything he needs to do to get in and play.”
Brian Privett, a teacher and coach at Madison Academy (near Huntsville, Ala.) who is Muniru’s guardian, said that Muniru flew to Louisville Monday night and was driven to town today. Since he’s not officially here for school, he won’t move into the dorms and will stay with friends of the Privett’s.
Muniru took part in pick up games with other Indiana players Tuesday. Many of those players are bound for home and a few weeks of rest, though, with the second summer session ending this week. But Muniru plans to stay in the Midwest and continue working out with players here (South grad Jordan Hulls, for instance, will still be around.)
Fall classes begin on Aug. 31.
Top 2010 target Kyrie Irving will take at least two official visits during the coming months, to Indiana and Duke.
Indiana put on the full-court press for the point guard out of New Jersey during July, often sending two or three coaches to his games.
Irving took an unofficial visit to Indiana in May, when his AAU team played in the Adidas May Classic. He spoke very well of Indiana after that visit, and some thought a commitment was coming.
Irving backed off that talk when I saw in early July, at the LeBron James Skills Academy in Akron, Ohio.
“They’re the same as every other school,” Irving said. “I listed them as my favorite, but I think it was kind of early. Everybody is just balanced.”
He did say at that time that he would not be afraid to commit during an official visit. (more…)
Say you’re a 9th grader. A 140-pound dude who decided football might be fun.
Your coach can make you practice twice on the very first day of practice.
Say you’re a 22-year-old 5th year senior at a Division I school who weighs 220-pounds and has five percent body fat.
Your coach can’t make you practice twice on the first day of practice. Even though you probably want to. And maybe even need to if you’re going to reach your peak performance.
Such is the situation due to the NCAA “acclimation period,” which mandates that football teams essentially build up to two-a-days and full-contact hitting.
