Glass: Referee spoof was “completely inappropriate”

Indiana athletic director Fred Glass has been trying to push the envelope to change the atmosphere at IU football games, but he said a commercial spoofing referees that appeared on the video board during Saturday’s game against Western Michigan pushed the envelope a bit too far and disrespected the officials working the game.

During a penalty-boosted drive that helped Western Michigan to the Indiana 5-yard line, the IU video board showed a commercial from Subway’s “Fresh Moment” ad campaign in which an official used his microphone to admit a mistake by saying “I totally blew that call. In fact, it wasn’t even close. But don’t worry, I’ll penalize the other team for no good reason in the second half to even things up.”

The commercial aired immediately after Indiana cornerback Richard Council was flagged for pass interference, drawing cheers from IU fans. On the next play, however, the officials flagged linebacker Justin Carrington for a 15-yard, roughing-the-passer. A few plays later, linebacker Tyler Replogle was penalized for a face mask, putting Western Michigan on the 5-yard-line before Greg Middleton caused and Carrington recovered a game-saving fumble.

Glass claimed responsibility and said that the commercial should not have been aired.

“The buck stops with me there,” he said. “I’m the one who is ultimately responsible for what goes on there. I thought it was completely inappropriate and it will never happen again.” (more…)


Polk back, Willis’s status unknown

Got a couple of quick updates from an IU spokesman on the status of Nick Polk and Darius Willis. Polk is apparently good to go after his head injury suffered in the first half of Saturday’s game. The status of Willis’s ankle will be determined throughout the week. He missed Saturday’s game.


New depth chart

Indiana just sent out game notes with a new depth chart, which will follow. Not much to see, but free safety Nick Polk, who missed the second half of Saturday’s game with a head injury, is still listed atop the depth chart. Left guard Justin Pagan, who returned Saturday after missing the opener with an ankle injury, is listed as the starter after being the backup on last week’s depth chart. Running back Darius Willis, who injured his ankle last week, is not listed. Freshman Adam Repogle, who started his first game Saturday, is in the starting position again.

The rest follows.

IU-Michigan game to appear on ESPN/ESPN2

From Indiana media relations:

Indiana’s Sept. 26 game at Michigan will kick off at noon EDT at Michigan Stadium and will be televised on either ESPN or ESPN2, it was announced today. The final designation of which network the game will air on will be made following this weekend’s contests. All games can be heard on the statewide IU Radio Network (Don Fischer, Pete Compise and Joe Smith).

Game times are predicated on the Big Ten Conference television agreement with ABC, the Big Ten Network, ESPN and ESPN2 and are often not announced until 12 days before kickoff.Starting 2-0 for the sixth straight season, the Hoosiers hit the road for the first time in 2009 with a visit to Akron this weekend. IU will be the second team to travel to brand new InfoCision Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 19. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. and the game will be televised on ESPNU.

IU moved to 2-0 following a 23-19 victory over Western Michigan on Sept. 12. Senior Demetrius McCray ran for a career-high 134 yards with a 59-yard score and senior defensive end Greg Middleton forced a WMU fumble at the IU 8-yard-line with 1:20 remaining to preserve the victory. Bill Lynch became the first Indiana head coach to open his career with three consecutive 2-0 starts.


A couple of recruiting notes

  • Kyrie Irving, Indiana’s top target in the class of 2010, Tweeted last night that his in-home visit with Indiana went “really well.” Totally splitting hairs here, but he earlier Tweeted that his in-home visits with Duke and Kentucky went “great.”
  • Duke and Kentucky will also have or have had in-home visits with Florida point guard Brandon Knight, Adam Zagoria is reporting. Knight is Rivals.com’s No. 1 player in the country for 2010 and is not expected to make a decision until the Spring.
  • Stacey Poole told Phil Kornblut of the Spartanburg (S.C.) Herald-Journal that Kentucky, South Carolina and Clemson are now his top three, and he is no longer considering Indiana.

Carlino will hear on eligibility this week

The IHSAA will make a decision on Bloomington South junior Matt Carlino this week.
