Maurice Lydel Creek

The Indiana Address Book is currently listing a Maurice Lydel Creek as an enrolled student at the school.

That was not the case a day ago.

Indiana coach Tom Crean told Dustin Dopirak and Chris Korman Wednesday that he expects to hear something from the NCAA on the eligibility of both Creek and Bawa Muniru by the end of this week or early next week.

“There’s some technicalities with it. We’re looking forward to them being cleared very soon. We don’t have any reason to believe that they won’t be. it’s just a matter of it getting done. The paperwork that goes into it, it’s all there. Hopefully we won’t have to revise their schedule at all. Right now I can’t tell you exactly what we’ll do there. We’re going to wait and hope we hear something by the end of this week or the latest hopefully by the beginning of next week, I’ll be disappointed if we don’t hear something by then, that they’ll be cleared and ready to go.”

Muniru is not yet listed in the address book.


  1. Forget the link, I’m just glad things appear to have been resolved with his eligibility. It had to be a very trying process for him. Welcome to IU, Maurice!

  2. Does this mean he has been cleared by the NCAA or does it mean he is enrolled as a student and is possibly not yet cleared to play athletics? Maybe I’m wrong but I don’t think athletic eligibility and student enrollment are necessarily the same.

  3. No, this does not mean he has been cleared.

    A better read of it is that he’s officially been enrolled in the university.

    IU will let you know when Creek and Muniru are cleared. Believe me on that.

  4. Maybe so, but you still have to be enrolled to be eligible, so I will look at this as the first hurdle cleared.

    Keep us updated please.

  5. KevinK,

    Not to be “eligible” in the way we’re talking about it. In fact, with the Eligibility Center, you shouldn’t enroll until you are cleared.

  6. Wow, this is all clear as mud now. It’s the great question of the month. Chris, we’re like your flock waiting to be told the word. It’s got a certain revival feel to it. So I guess that makes you the revivalist. Weird.
