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
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 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…)

This PDF explains what it means to you, the fan driving to the game.
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.
