For that story, I detailed how Lynch and his staff are already successful recruiting in-state, and how Indiana produces more BCS-level players than you might imagine.
Here are the raw numbers:
TOTAL NUMBER OF BCS SIGNEES PRODUCED FROM 2007-09
1. Ohio 219
2. Pennsylvania 148
3. Illinois 112
4. Michigan 98
5. Indiana 57 (more…)
Indiana football coach Bill Lynch answered questions at Joe’s Bar in Chicago during an Indiana Alumni Association event on Monday.
Jack Denton, an athlete from Zionsville (Ind.), verbally committed to Indiana today.
He is the 15th prospect in the class of 2010 for the Hoosiers, joining Cincinnati (Ohio) cornerback Cameron Cole as one of two IU commitments to come today.
Denton said he wanted to be a part of rebuilding the Indiana football program.
“Coach (Bill) Lynch is a smart guy,” Denton said. “He knows what he is doing. He will turn IU football around. And that’s what I want IU football to do, and I want to be a huge part of it.”
Denton, who is 6-foot-2 and 235 pounds, was recruited as an athlete because of his multi-position versatility.
He plays linebacker and fullback for Zionsville, so he could play linebacker or H-back for Indiana. (more…)
This is from Monday, when Indiana football coach Bill Lynch met with the assembled Indiana media after his short press conference.
CHICAGO — The Big Ten Media Days are complete after a two-hour interview session this morning with all 11 Big Ten coaches and three players from each school.
Chris Korman bounced around, talking to Bill Lynch, Ben Chappell, Jammie Kirlew and Will Patterson.
I stayed with Lynch.
This is some of what I learned:
“This football team is really, ever since the end of the year in November, had a great offseason. That’s where it all begins.”
“You got to be good upfront if you’re going to win. We have now a situation with our offensive line that we have 84 returning starts in our offensive line. That’s quite a few in college football today.”
“I really like this football team and the way they’ve worked.”
“We’re really proud of what has been built in Blomington and the commitment from our administration. To put together what not only changes the face of the stadium, but the area we are going to work in. … There’s a new face to Indiana football.”
“(Greg Middleton) didn’t have the kind of year he had as a sophomore. (Since January) He’s had a great work ethic. I know our strength & conditioning staff have been really impressed with him.”
“(On more open dates) Yeah, I think that would help. It’s a long season. These kids work all year-round now. It’s unbelieve what we ask of them. … It’s a demanding time. If we can give them a week off somewhere in there, it helps. If you get a week off, I hope it’s later in the season.”
“(On pistol) We wanted to be able to run some power football with some different blocking schemes up front.”
“We got a little bit spoiled (with James Hardy).”
“We’d like to get to a point where we can play a good BCS school as one of our nonconference games.”
“(On visiting Greek organizations during the Spring) Visiting the sororities was a lot better than the fraternities.”
Minnesota coach Tim Brewster has joined Penn State coach Joe Paterno in the group of coaches wanting a 12th team in the Big Ten and a football championships game.
Brewster, at the end of his podium address to the assembled media at the Big Ten Media Days, said he looks forward to the Big Ten having a Saturday night championship game on national television.
“How great would that be?” Brewster said. “We’re missing a little something there by not having it.”
Brewster also said Minnesota has schedule a home-and-away with Southern California for the coming years. Said recruits perk up when they hear that, and that they want to play in marquee national television games.
But wait, doesn’t every Big Ten team already appear on national television?
Who wins Saturday's Crossroads Classic game?
