Evans, Doss named captains for Illinois

From IU Sports Info:


BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana Head Football Coach Bill Lynch announced that senior safety Mitchell Evans and junior wide receiver Tandon Doss will serve as game captains for Saturday’s contest at Illinois. They will join season captains Ben Chappell and Tyler Replogle for the 11 a.m. CDT/noon EDT kickoff against the Fighting Illini.

Dakich’s recruiting info

Dan Dakich just said on his show that he’ll talk about some recruiting information he has at some point during today’s show.

I am listening. You can listen too here.

I’ll let you know what it is and we’ll go from there.

UPDATE: Dakich did say Cody Zeller to IU is “a done deal.” But he’s been saying that for a while, so it does not strike me as news. Far more likely he’s going to drag this along and get a bit of a boost to his ratings.

SECOND UPDATE: Just teased IU recruiting after the next break.

THIRD UPDATE: Dakich: “I am going to tell you the same stuff I’ve heard before, but I got it confirmed again last night.”

FOURTH UPDATE: “Done deal to IU and then the other two after that.”

McClain visited Chandler

Indiana assistant coach Steve McClain was in Indianapolis today to watch Lawrence North center Michael Chandler, according to the Star’s Kyle Neddenriep.

Chandler, a true center in the class of 2011, has taken official visits to West Virginia and Providence, and told Neddenriep he’ll visit Xavier this weekend.

I am working on getting something more on this and Chandler’s status with Indiana. While Chandler has been listing Indiana, there are said to be academic concerns, and he has a relationship with Ryan Boatright (who just committed to West Virginia) and the two had talked about playing together.

Kiles questionable, Turner probable on injury report

Safety Lenyatta Kiles (groin) is listed as questionable on this week’s injury report and running back Nick Turner (concussion) is listed as probable. Kiles missed last week’s game against Arkansas State and Turner was out of the game early after one reception.

The rest of Tuesday’s injury report included information that most already knew. Offensive tackle Josh Hager (knee) and running back Darius Willis (knee) are listed as out for the season. Safety Chris Adkins (ankle), right tackle James Brewer (ankle), cornerback Richard Council (knee) and Nick Freeland (hip) are all listed as out.

Cryptic Crean in Washington today?

Indiana basketball coach Tom Crean tweeted this today: “Just drove through the hometown of Gil Hodges with (IU assistant coach) Tim Buckley. On a tour of hometowns of Baseball greats in Southern Indiana.”

Former Brooklyn Dodgers  star Hodges was born in Princeton, Ind., but grew up in Petersburg, just a few miles down the road on Ind. 57 southwest from Washington, current hometown of a certain Cody Zeller.

There are unconfirmed reports out that the Hoosier coaches were at Washington High School for the Hatchets’ regular morning workout. Zeller, Washington’s 6-foot-10 standout and the most coveted uncommitted recruit in the state’s senior class, just returned from an official visit to North Carolina where he attended “Late Night with Roy,” the Tar Heels’ version of midnight madness, as orchestrated by coach Roy Williams — himself a not infrequent visitor to Washington in recent weeks. Elder brother Tyler Zeller, a junior player at UNC, was a participant in the LNWR festivities.

Cody, as is well-known by now, will choose between UNC, Indiana and Butler. His last official visit is set for IU over Halloween weekend.

So feel free to speculate as to the nature of Crean and Buckley’s apparent visit today.

Pease and Hubers Big Ten Runners of the Week

Indiana’s Ben Hubers and Sarah Pease have both garnered Big Ten runners of the Week honors after leading their respective Hoosier squads to second-place finishes among 56- and 50-team fields at Saturday’s Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival in Fayetteville, Ark.

Pease won the 5-kilometer women’s race, posting a 16:39 for a 10-second victory margin over 468 competitors, and Hubers ran a 29:39 to finish eighth out of 470 runners on the men’s side over a 10-kilometer course.

IU’s cross country teams will next compete Oct. 31 in the Big Ten championships at Wisconsin.
