BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- I just finished doing a TV interview for ESPNEWS and will make my way out to the practice field on this sweltering afternoon.
Things I'll watch:
- The quarterbacks (duh), as Ben Chappell and incumbent starter Kellen Lewis work with the no-huddle.
- I'm also interested in the running backs. Has Marcus Thigpen stepped forward or will someone else, like freshman Darius Willis, claim a share of the carries this fall?
- Matt Mayberry runs a 4.49 in the 40, and I want to see if the Hoosiers middle linebacker is the real deal. After sitting down with him earlier, he certainly looks the part.
- Who is emerging at the second cornerback spot opposite Chris Phillips?
