Bill Lynch is holding his press conference now.
Biggest news so far is that he expects true freshman Adam Replogle to be part of the rotation at defensive tackle.
No huge shock there. He’s been playing well.
The Big Ten Network was at IU’s football practice. If you get the channel — and you probably do — you can watch to see what the folks there said. I’m sure they’ve got video, too. Cameras were everywhere. Then I visited an old college buddy who works for the network, and he was in a truck with 137 televisions (give or take 50). Some fancy work going on in there for sure.
Though we weren’t given access to coaches or players, I went over to practice to see what I could see. And by that I mean I went to see Mike Hall. And, eureka, Dave Revsine.
Anyway, there are a few injuries to report:
As I reported in Sunday’s paper, Dusty Kiel and Edward Wright-Baker continue pushing for the No. 2 and 3 spots on the depth chart.

Indiana began two-a-days today, with practices nine and 10 (of 29 total before the season opener against Eastern Kentucky on Thursday, Sept. 3).
We were at the morning practice. The afternoon practice, a controlled scrimmage, was not open to the media.

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:
