Words do not describe …

Both the Big Ten Network’s love of Ro*Tel, and my love of the Big Ten Network for loving Ro*Tel.


Here is the link to the contest (the above is just a screen grab). You could win pretty cool stuff, but more importantly you also get the honor of saying Ro*Tel and you are linked for eternity (or, you know, the year of free groceries).

Big Ten Icon No. 38: Calbert Cheaney

The Big Ten Network is counting down the conference’s top 50 icons (based entirely on their collegiate careers) and it finally got to its first Hoosier: Calbert Cheaney.

Freshman Perez suffers ugly injury

Matt Perez was supposed to redshirt this season anyway, but the Indiana freshman running back may be spending more of his redshirt campaign healing than he would like.

The 5-foot-11, 225-pound running back suffered an ugly knee injury during Tuesday’s practice. The Hoosiers were not practicing in full pads, so there was no full tackling involved, but Perez planted his right foot awkwardly and fell to the ground. He was hit by safety Aaron Burks at the same time, forcing his leg to shift, causing the injury. Perez lay on the ground for several minutes before trainers carried him off the field, then drove him away from the practice facility.

After practice, Indiana coach Bill Lynch said he didn’t know the extent of the injury and hadn’t yet met with the athletic training staff.

Perez was Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune and’s prep player of the year in 2009 when he rushed for 2,246 yards and 34 touchdowns as a senior at Maine South in Park Ridge, Ill.

Several other players were held out of Tuesday’s practice including defensive end Darius Johnson (hamstring), defensive end Kevin Bush (neck stinger), cornerback Andre Kates (hip), wide receiver Tandon Doss (groin) and wide receiver Dre Muhammad (ankle). Freshman wide receiver Logan Young and tight end Leneil Himes both returned to action after sitting out several days of practice last week.

Ferrell visit plus 2013 rankings

Yogi Ferrell will take an unofficial visit to Indiana on Wednesday, according to a Twitter report.

Report inaccurate. Sorry for the confusion. also unveiled its 2013 top 15. Indiana’s top three targets in the class — Basil Smotherman, Devin Davis and Zak Irvin — are not in the 15. Eric Bossi, one of Rivals’ national guys, said Smotherman and Davis would be four-stars but they are holding off on Irvin for now.

The best play you did not see this weekend

Yes, I went to Appalachian State and that’s probably why I saw it. But still pretty cool — first-year starting QB DeAndre Presley, who got the nod to replace Armanti Edwards, throws a pass, watches it get fumbled and then picks it up and runs it for a touchdown. Yes, that means, according to the boxscore, he completed a pass to himself.
