IU football updates

A couple bits of news from today’s Indiana football practice:

1. Bill Lynch said he’s looking at the start of the Big Ten season as the deadline for making decisions about redshirting players. With receivers Demarlo Belcher and Tandon Doss already playing as true freshmen, others who appear to have a chance to play – depending on injuries – are offensive linemen Will Matte and Justin Pagan, and running back Darius Willis, Lynch said. The Hoosier coach said he didn’t expect any true freshmen to play on defense.

Could Watford be next?

As we’ve reported, Tom Crean is visiting Alabama wing Christian Watford today.

As the Facebook stalkers connoisseurs at Inside The Hall have reported, Watford changed his status Monday night to “WORLD…STAY TUNED 4 TOMORROW!!!!!!”

This means either he’s planning on telling Crean he’d like to play at Indiana or there’s a gigantic meteor headed our way that only Christian Watford knows about. Either way, it’s exhilarating.

Paying tribute to a basketball coach who deserves it

By   |   Tuesday, Sep. 9, 2008 - 3:09 PM   |   1 comment

Dan Wetzel, Yahoo’s fine columnist, has written a story about Don Haskins that made me, quite frankly, a little misty-eyed.

Haskins was the coach at Texas Western who decided to start five black players in the national title game — in 1966.

Wetzel co-authored a book about it, and it later inspired the movie “Glory Road.”

Crean’s ‘Bama bound

By   |   Monday, Sep. 8, 2008 - 5:23 PM   |   1 comment

Ernest Watford saw the way his son, Christian, has been wooed by major college basketball programs all summer.

Ernest was there at Indiana’s elite camp in late August to hear the Hoosiers’ coaching gush about how much his son, a smooth 6-foot-7 wing, would bring to the program. He had the chance to talk to Isaih Thomas and D.J. White “at length about all things Indiana basketball.”

Yet Ernest was not convinced that Indiana and its new coach would be right for his son.

So he called around.

“I won’t say who,” he said on Monday. “Just people who knew coach Crean before he was at Indiana. Parents who dealt with him, some other coaches. People who’d know.”

And?
