Chappell Named To Johnny Unitas Watch List

From Indiana Sports Information:


BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana senior quarterback Ben Chappell has been named to the preseason watch list for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, sponsored by the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Foundation.

The award, which is presented annually to the top senior quarterback in the country, acknowledges performance on the field, as well as character, citizenship, integrity and those who honor the game. (more…)

So I screwed up…

and didn’t post a link to the chat this morning. This was probably the reason we only had six questions. Korman usually does this, of course. He’s on vacation, and for some reason it never occurred to me until after the chat that someone else might have to do this, and that someone should probably be me.

My apologies, all. Hopefully you get something out of reading the answers to the few questions we got.

Roberts said he is ready to be a Hoosier

Indiana has made Bloomington North running back D’Angelo Roberts a priority since it began recruiting the class of 2011.

That paid off today, when Roberts verbally committed to Indiana.

Roberts, who is 323 yards behind the Monroe County career rushing record entering his senior year, said he was talking to Indiana running backs coach/associate head coach Dennis Springer and “just felt like today was the day to become a Hoosier.”

“I’ve been here (in Bloomington) for a while,” Roberts said. “I see it as a good, up-and-coming program. And I have a real good relationship with coach (Dennis) Springer. That’s all I need right there.”

Roberts ran for 2,604 yards and 32 touchdowns as a junior, along with 12 catches (and three more scores). He was a workhorse of a back, with 388 carries in 12 games, during what is the state’s 17th-best single-season total.
