Indiana lifts Darius Latham’s suspension #iufb

Darius Latham made the trip to State College and will be active for Saturday’s game against Penn State.

Indiana announced Friday that it has lifted the suspension on the junior defensive tackle, who missed last week’s game due to a pending proceeding with Indiana’s Office of Student Ethics. IU coach Kevin Wilson has refused to comment on the nature of the suspension for Latham, who was also held out of the team’s season opener due to disciplinary reasons.

Latham’s return gives Indiana a push in its pursuit of Nittany Lions quarterback Christian Hackenberg, who has been sacked a Big Ten-worst 15 times through five games. In his last game for IU, Latham posted a career-high three tackles for a loss and one sack at Wake Forest on Sept. 26.

Although he could not participate in last week’s game against No. 1 Ohio State, Latham appeared on the field dressed in street clothes while his teammates worked through pregame warmups.

Latham has 10 tackles on the season, including five for a loss.

  1. He should be fresh and highly motivated. IU’s defense for Saturday’s game just significantly better. Now let’s all hope he learned his lesson and keeps his nose clean through the remainder of the season and his career at IU.

  2. Are you sure you can’t find a way to tie this story line into a rant about how bad Crean is being mistreated?

  3. LOL! Why am I not surprised that you entirely miss the point of those “rants?” They just go right over your head, don’t they! Well, that’s O.K. You have a nice weekend and don’t trouble yourself thinking about anything other than IU beating Penn State.

  4. Exactly the motivation the rotation up front needed for this game. Also gives Knorr a little more leeway in his options for situational scheming. Redding, Wilson, Rodriguez and possibly Majette need to own the football.

  5. Great news for the IU football team as it does give the DC more options on rotation and improves the pass rush and the run stoppage. I hope it gives a lift to the whole team and it will be even more fun to watch this game.

  6. Great news, hopefully the young man will have no more problems this year and in the future….i am in hope that the Offensive line plays a lot better against Penn State Defensive line……Dimitric Camiel had his hands full with Joey Bosa last week…….the Ohio State defensive line made a few plays in the IU backfield..

  7. Latham’s stupid personal foul penalty cost IU a fumble recovery and a 15 yard penalty, which lead to a PSU touchdown. What’s with this guy?
