It’s a plane … from Indy to Oklahoma to Madison

A private plane left Indianapolis Friday morning and traveled to the University of Oklahoma and Madison, Wisc.

While we cannot yet say definitively who was on the flight, the pattern indicates it was someone connected to Indiana University.

As you are by now no doubt aware, multiple reports indicate Indiana has interviewed Oklahoma offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson and Wisconsin defensive coordinator David Doeren for its open head football coach position.

UPDATE: The plane is owned by a company named “Bogey Bird.” Also, because I forgot to mention this earlier, the same plane traveled to Boston on Wed., leaving in the early afternoon and coming back from Boston at 10:27 p.m.

UPDATE: Some astute readers have noted it is Fuzzy Zoeller’s plane.


ESPN: Glass meets with Wilson, others.

Miami — 25 18 13 25 9 (2)
5TH SET: Benson finishes it with a touch kill that ricochets to the floor. IU playing Tennessee Saturday at 3 for a trip to the regional finals in Dayton. For the record, Alabama A&M has played both teams and Bulldogs’ coach gives IU the edge.
Miami’s determined not to let Benson beat them, but IU making other plays. Kill by Obieme and a four-hit call have IU ahead, 6-4. Switch ends at 8-4.
4TH SET: It’s tight again. IU timeout after 3-0 Miami run to make it 11-8. Hoosiers hanging in but can’t get over hump. Miami wins last three points to clinch it. We’re going to take the fifth. Benson 23 kills (.588), Haverly 17, Ivie Obieme 10. Miami hit .375. 25 digs for Cox, 21 for Haverly.

2ND SET: This one’s been nip and tuck all the way through, but IU’s better play from the first set has carried over. A mini 3-0 run at 12-12 gave IU the cushion it hung on to. This one could go the distance. IU finished it off with a Benson block and an ace by Haverly. Benson has 11 kills (.471), Haverly 8. IU hit .196 that set while Miami dropped to .111. And give Caitlin Cox 13 digs in a heroic effort. IU now with 11 assist and 5.5 team blocks, catching up to Miami (1-10, 6).
1ST SET: It’s not going well early as Miami ruling at the net to lead 20-13. Hoosiers hitting an anemic .033 to Miami’s .308. Scrappy Canes are getting to everything. IU covered better last 10 points, but Miami still comes away with it. Ashley Benson has five kills and is hitting well (.571), so is Jordan Haverly, six kills (.357), but IU still at .087 to end set. Telling stat No. 2: Miami 1 solo, 8 block assists, 5 team. IU 0 solo, 4 assists, 2 team.

IU and Miami (Fla) are set to begin at 7. Updates coming at the end of each set. The place is packed and rockin’. And the band is right behind me. Eardrums are in trouble.

Crean discusses life without Michel

Tom Crean got his first chance to vent about Guy-Marc Michel’s ineligibility on Friday and he didn’t hold much back.

“I have trouble seeing any wisdom in the decision,” Crean said. “I really do. I have great respect for how we handled it at Indiana. I have great respect for the council we got legally to work with it. It’s an unfortunate situation. It’s just extremely disappointing that there wasn’t any leniency given at all given the situation based on the circumstances.”

Crean said the Hoosiers have leniency to use him as a student assistant coach, which means he can help in practice, but in a coach’s role. Crean said the Hoosiers will continue to work with him and hope to help him get to the next level. (more…)


IU looking at Oklahoma OC?

An Orlando-based website called Football Rumor Mill.com is reporting that multiple sources say Oklahoma offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson is in line for an interview with Indiana and that the job is “his to lose,” unless he screws up the interview.

Is this website credible? I have no idea. I just texted Fred Glass about it and he politely reminded me that he’s staying radio silent on all issues. I don’t trust or know the sources well enough to put in a newspaper story, but i think it’s worth discussing on the blog, and since we didn’t include Wilson in our initial list of candidates, this might be a good time to introduce him. A few pertinent points from his resume:

  • Wilson has been at Oklahoma since 2002 and the offensive coordinator since 2006. That means he was responsible for the Oklahoma offense in 2008 that scored more than 60 points five times, an FBS record, and scored a record 716 points for the season. Sam Bradford won the Heisman Trophy for leading that group. Of course, it lost to Florida in the national championship game that year. (more…)

Bruin a MAC Hermann Trophy Semifinalist

Indiana forward Will Bruin was named as one of 15 semifinalists for the 2010 Missouri Athletic Club Hermann Trophy Thursday.

Bruin’s 18 goals and five assists earned him the first semifinalist nod since Brad Ring in 2008. Bruin has already earned Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year honors as well as the Top Drawer Soccer team of the season and Goal.com first team of the year. He is also up for Soccer News Net Player of the Year, where fan voting here accounts for 40 percent of the outcome.

The last Hoosier to win the award was Danny O’Rourke in 2004. Prior to 2002, the MAC Player of the Year and Hermann Trophy were separate awards. Past MAC winners from IU are Ken Snow (1988, 1990) and Todd Yeagley (1994), while Hermann winners have been Angelo DiBernardo (1978), Armando Betancourt (1981), Ken Snow (1988, 1990), and Brian Maisonneuve (1994). Of course, Yeagley is now the Indiana head coach and Maisonneuve one of his assistants.

The list will be narrowed to three semifinalists announced on Dec. 10. Those three individuals will travel to the Missouri Athletic Club where the winner will be announced on Jan. 7. A complete list of semifinalists is available at www.NSCAA.com.


Moye rehabbing, ‘out of the woods’

Former Hoosier A.J. Moye is currently going through rehab in Germany as he continues to recover from a stroke suffered last month.

“He looks to be out of the woods,” said Aaron Smith, Moye’s agent.

He goes through rehab a couple of times a day, Smith said, and it looks like will make a full recovery.
