Indiana redshirt freshman QB Peyton Ramsey will continue to see the field off the bench for the Hoosiers.

Indiana is sticking with the status quo, for now. That status quo entails Richard Lagow starting but having a very short leash. Ramsey is trending up after accounting for three touchdowns in sparking the offense in Saturday's 34-17 victory over Virginia. "I'm excited we have two (quarterbacks) that have proven they can make plays at a high level," HC Tom Allen said. "We want those guys to compete. We'll make those decisions as they come. The bottom line is they're both going to play."

Though he remains the starter, Indiana offensive coordinator Mike DeBord intends to rotate redshirt senior QB Richard Lagow with Peyton Ramsey in games.

Ramsey soundly outplayed Lagow in Saturday's win over Virginia, throwing for two touchdowns and running for a third off the bench. "I think it’s almost a game day feel as in what is the defense giving you?" DeBord said. "It’s what do you feel like you need to do?" DeBord has the luxury of having two quarterbacks with disparate skill sets. He intends to attack defensive weaknesses by leveraging each quarterback's specific strengths. Lagow is a big, classic pocket passer with a strong arm, while the dual-threat Ramsey is a threat to run the ball.

Former Indiana RB Camion Patrick and JUCO RB Isaiah S. Wright were arrested and charged with criminal homicide.

Patrick and Wright have been charged along with two other men in connection to the stabbing of 18-year-old Caleb Radford on July 25. That incident occurred just one day after Indiana awarded Patrick a medical hardship waiver to allow him to remain on scholarship at the school (this waiver exhausted his collegiate eligibility). Both Wright and Patrick began their collegiate careers at East Mississippi Community College, but while Patrick eventually found his way onto an FBS outfit, Wright did not, bouncing from EMCC to West Georgia University in the spring before subsequently leaving that school.

Indiana HC Tom Allen believes junior T Brandon Knight (undisclosed) is close to returning.

A converted tight end, Knight started six games at right tackle last year. After missing most of Indiana’s practices last month, he returned to practice last Sunday. He's got an extra week to mend with Indiana's game on Saturday versus FIU canceled.

Indiana and Charleston Southern have agreed to play on October 7 with the team's game against FIU having been canceled due to the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.

The Hoosiers had been set to play the Panthers this coming Saturday, but due to logistical concerns forced by Hurricane Irma, that contest has been canceled. Instead, Indiana will now play FCS squad Charleston Southern on what had been an open date on October 7. The kickoff time for this new contest has not yet been set.
Sep 12 - 6:16 PM

Indiana coach Tom Allen says he'll platoon redshirt senior QB Richard Lagow and redshirt freshman QB Peyton Ramsey.

Lagow is listed atop the depth chart for now, but both will play. "It's a gut feel, for sure," Allen said Monday. "But I'm just telling you, when you have the ability, whether it's change pace, change scheme ... you bring another guy in, he brings a different type of running style, type of skill set that he can do, things that he does well maybe the other guy doesn't do as well, I think that it forces [opponents] to be able to prepare for both. That's hard to do sometimes." Ramsey sparked the offense when he came on in relief of Lagow in Saturday's game against Virginia. Indiana is off this weekend after Saturday's game against FIU was canceled.

Indiana HC Tom Allen believes RB Tyler Natee (undisclosed) will be able to return to the field soon.

Natee (6'0/260) has been out with an undisclosed injury. He'll re-enter Indiana's running back platoon once active.
Sep 12 - 1:14 PM

FIU and Indiana canceled their game scheduled for Saturday due to the aftermath Hurricane Irma.

The schools cited logistical hurdles. FIU's players are actually still in Birmingham, Alabama, where they fled nearly a week ago to get away from Irma. FIU has canceled classes. Indiana is trying to schedule a new opponent to play at Memorial Stadium on Oct. 7, currently slated to be the team's bye week.

Sep 12 - 12:25 PM

Indiana redshirt senior QB Richard Lagow was listed at the top of the depth chart for Saturday's game against FIU.

Lagow was benched in week two against Virginia after competing just 3-for-10 passes for 24 yards and a pick against the Cavaliers. Backup quarterback Peyton Ramsey came in and played well, but it appears that Lagow will remain the Hoosiers signal-caller -- at least to start the game.
Sep 11 - 8:55 PM

Indiana redshirt freshman QB Peyton Ramsey completed 16-of-20 attempts for 173 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's win over Virginia.

Ladies and gentleman, we have a quarterback controversy in Bloomington. Ramsey came on for an ineffective Richard Lagow and sparked the offense. In addition to his efficient work through the air, he chipped in 42 rushing yards and another touchdown on the ground. Stay tuned for an announcement on who Indiana will go with later this week against Florida International. According to ESPN, Ramsey was the No. 42 pocket passer nationally coming out of high school.
Sep 11 - 4:40 PM

Indiana redshirt junior WR Simmie Cobbs caught five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 34-17 win over Virginia.

While Cobbs flash-fried Ohio State for 149 yards and a touchdown in Indiana's season-opening loss, he was unable to quite reach those operatic heights on Saturday. He did notch a 29-yard touchdown grab midway through the second quarter. The redshirt junior is working to a sturdy 16-211-2 receiving line through two games this young season.
Sep 9 - 7:50 PM

Indiana redshirt senior QB Richard Lagow was replaced by redshirt freshman QB Peyton Ramsey in the first half of Saturday's game against Virginia.

Lagow was not playing well at the time Ramsey entered the game, but it is unclear if he was replaced due to mere ineffectiveness or due to injury. If there is an injury in the mix, here, we will pass along updates as they become available.
Sep 9 - 4:56 PM

Indiana redshirt junior WR Simmie Cobbs "won in the eyes of scouts" with his performance against Ohio State on Thursday, according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

"The big bodied wide out proved himself a game controlling receiver that consistently wins out for contested passes," Pauline wrote. "And though the Buckeyes secondary has been depleted by graduation and early entry into the draft they still line-up Denzel Ward, a cornerback many feel has first round potential." Cobbs caught 11 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown in the setback against the Buckeyes. "In July we noted Cobbs could stamp himself as a second day pick with a big 2017 campaign and he’s well on his way," Pauline wrote. Cobbs (ankle) missed all but one game a year ago, but when healthy in 2015, he posted a 60-1,035-4 receiving line.
Sep 6 - 6:15 PM

Indiana junior WR Nick Westbrook will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL.

Westbrook sustained the ACL tear on the opening kickoff against Ohio State in the Hoosiers' season-opening loss to the Buckeyes on Thursday. His loss is a critical one for Indiana, as Westbrook was the team's leading returning receiver entering the season after logging a 54-995-6 receiving line last year. Simmie Cobbs and Donovan Hale are expected to see the brunt of targets with Westbrook now down for the count.
Sep 4 - 1:53 PM

Indiana junior WR Donavan Hale had five catches for 67 yards in Thursday's loss to Ohio State.

A converted quarterback, the 6-foot-4, 215-pound Hale emerged as a starter this summer, beating out Nick Westbrook, the team's leading receiver last year. Hale looked like a natural against the Buckeyes, using his size, speed and athleticism to win one-on-one matchups. If Westbrook's knee injury is serious, Hale will see even more targets than he otherwise may have.
