For Nick Stoner, his speed and his faith make him an impact athlete, Dustin writes.

Calbert Cheaney and D.J. White combined forces last weekend for a camp at Assembly Hall with Tom Crean, Dustin writes.

Indiana landed very big commitment from Texas defensive tackle Jacobi Hunter, Dustin writes.

2. IT’S INDIANA
Matt Roth says he never felt misled by Tom Crean in the months since last season ended, Jeff Rabjohns of peegs.com writes (free).

Tom Crean had folks hanging on every syllable during a speaking engagement in Fort Wayne Sunday night, Ben Smith of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette writes.

Former IU wide receiver Dre Muhammad was cut by the Raiders, while offensive line injuries still have Andrew McDonald in the mix with the Dolphins.

  1. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL????

    I can’t believe the season is here already. I’m predicting Roberson plays like Michael Vick.

  2. From Ben Smith’s piece:

    And, oh, it is, all right, and with a suddenness that makes you reel a bit after 6-25 and 10-21 and 12-20. Now virtually everyone’s back from last year’s 27-9 club, and there’s a mended Maurice Creek and a handful of stud freshmen, and people are seriously thinking Indiana might be a preseason No.1.

    A “mended Maurice Creek” is sure in stark contrast to what Clarion was hinting earlier today.

    “I also heard that at the Ft. Wayne golf outing insinuations were hinted Creek may never be the same and for certain not this season.”

  3. Rabjohn’s article in Peegs (go to the link) should quiet all those people trashing Crean over the Roth matter, once and for all. In fact, it should embarrass a few of those critics, but that may be an unreasonable expectation. Roth could not have been any more clear about the lengths to which Crean and his staff went to help Roth, to provide him options, and to make sure they were communicating with him thoroughly and continuously. Roth’s comments, as sited in Rabjohn’s article vindicate Crean and his staff completely.

    End of debate and end of story. Now, let’s play some football.

  4. Ben Smith is correct that Mo is “mended”. A friend of mine who was at the event in Fort Wayne was hearing he is not back to what he was and may never be. Really not hard to understand with his physical ordeals.
