IU women at Ohio State: Discuss it here

Like most of you, I’m watching today’s game on the Big Ten Network. But my friends from the IDS, Jeremy Rosenthal and Dave Leno, are in Columbus and will be providing updates and analysis. Feel free to join the discussion as IU aims to reclaim first in the Big Ten.

The Knight went down to Georgia?

Bob Knight

Evoking all sorts of images from that Charlie Daniels classic, Bob Knight is reportedly interested in taking the head coaching job at Georgia.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Furman Bisher, who’s old enough to hold grudges against anyone with Japanese lineage for Pearl Harbor, first reported that Knight wants the Georgia job, but won’t ask for it.

Now, the AJC’s Tim Tucker has this — the Bulldogs would welcome Knight to Athens. 

“I’d like to play for Coach Knight — as long as he doesn’t hit me,” freshman forward Trey Thompkins said.

Thompkins said he was kidding, of course. But maybe he wasn’t, and just didn’t want his first meeting with Knight to be physical.

Knight has also been connected with the Alabama job, though it seems unlikely that Nick Saban, the only man with an ego large enough to challenge Knight’s, would let that happen.

Ohio State at Indiana: Discuss it here

Penn State at IU women: Discuss it here

We’ll get the chat started about 6:45. A couple of quick notes first:

  • Sophomore Haylie Linn has been suspended for “failure to abide by team rules.” It is the second time Linn has been suspended this season. During her previous suspension, she attended all practices and sat on the bench in street clothes. Linn is not present for tonight’s game.
  • Freshman Lindsay Enterline did not play in Sunday’s loss to Illinois after aggravating a left leg/ankle injury that caused her to miss several games to start the season. She is wearing a brace in warmups, and we’ll see if she plays tonight.

Means invited to NFL Combine

Former Indiana wide receiver/outfielder and current Cincinnati Reds prospect Andrew Means has been invited to the NFL combine.

The Combine — which has a longer, fancier name that no one uses — will be held Feb. 20-26 in Indy. Players run, jump, lift weights and take tests while pro scouts swarm.  We’ll be sure to have a reporter there to cover the fun.

IU at Northwestern: Discuss it here

Game starts at 8:30. Chat should be up and running around 8ish.

Snow can’t stop the Thursday chat

Doug Wilson and I will be in our usual spot on Thursday at 11 a.m. for our weekly online discussion.

We can talk Hoosiers basketball, men’s or women’s, or football signing day or Kelvin Sampson (Doug is reuniting with the old coach in Indianapolis tonight in what will surely be an emotional night for both of them.)  Whatever you want.

Click here to ask questions ahead of time or to join in on Thursday.
