Indiana released a revised depth chart and injury report Tuesday night that revealed a few changes.
Cornerback Donnell Jones, who was listed as questionable with a hamstring injury earlier in the week, is now out. Sophomore Chris Adkins, who had been practicing at safety, has been moved to corner. Adrian Burks will be his backup. Fifth year senior Matt Kurz is now listed as the backup strong safety.
The defensive tackle spots saw a lot of shaking up. Junior Jarrod Smith, who was not on the depth chart Friday, now has one of the starting spots. Redshirt freshman Larry Black, Jr., who was a backup, is the other starter. Redshirt freshmen Nicholas Sliger and Mick Mentzer went from starters to backups, and freshman Adam Repogle is still on the depth chart, listed as a third-stringer.
True freshman Edward Wright-Baker is listed as quarterback Ben Chappell’s backup, denoting that coach Bill Lynch may be wiling to burn his redshirt. True freshman wide receiver Duwyce Wilson is also on the depth chart as a backup wide receiver. He replaces Max Dedmond, who was shifted back to backup tight end behind Brian Zematis. Returning starter Troy Wagner is surprisingly off the depth chart.
Redshirt freshman Marc Damisch will start in place of injured left guard Justin Pagan. Redshirt freshman Chris Ahlfeld will be his backup.
That’s Rascal Flatts. They’re a country group, of some fame. The songs I know of theirs could be best described as “Backstreet Boys go country.”
But you’ll hear plenty of them this season, because they’re the official artist for the Big Ten Network’s primetime football games. That includes three Indiana games, including Thursday’s season opener against Eastern Kentucky.
The group has rerecorded lyrics to their song “Me and my gang” to fit Big Ten football. Which is probably a good thing, because the song names four locations — southern Alabama; Butte, Mont.; California; and Oregon. Big Ten football, as you know, is not played or really, well, known in any of those four spots.
And in what way does Rascal Flatts represent major college athletics in 2009? What does a major rap artist have to do to get some love on a national broadcast?
After the jump, there is a video of them performing the “original” song. (more…)

About to begin . . .
Bill Lynch has arrived. Practice didn’t end until about 6:15 tonight, and then Lynch had to speak with the media.
So we’re at this place called Tuscany’s Bar and Grille inside the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Pretty snazzy place.
He’s saying — and he just said this to us on the practice field — that his veteran players are ready to go and need the challenge of playing somebody else. The young players could still use some more practice time, but as a whole the group is ready to go.
Maurice Creek said he found out he was declared eligible by a phone call by IU coach Tom Crean after coming out of a class Monday morning.
“I left my class and then coach Crean called me and was like, ‘You’re cleared,'” Creek said. “I was like , “Wow. Yes. I’m done.” It was a great feeling, just coming out of class. You wake up every morning thinking, ‘Did I get cleared, did I get cleared?’ And now it’s cleared.”
Crean provided a written statement.
“It’s one of those things where we were never in doubt that it would happen, or overly nervous,” he said in the statement. “But there is certainly a sense of relief when he actually was cleared and there was a sense of accomplishment when he was cleared. And to me that speaks volumes.”

The Detroit Free-Press reported this weekend that the Michigan football program broke NCAA rules limiting the number of hours of mandatory practice. Today, Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez spoke about it. Below is video from that press conference.
Michigan athletics director Bill Martin told AnnArbor.com that the university may hire an outside firm to assist in the investigation. Michigan, it should be noted, has never been put on probation for its football program.
