So Wednesday was supposed to be an easy day: go to Bloomington, get some fresh quotes after IU football practice, nothing on deadline, though. Then, once I get home, news breaks across Twitter that Ron Patterson reportedly didn’t qualify academically and won’t end up playing for the Hoosiers’ basketball team this season.

So instead of having nothing new to post this morning, I’ve got my stories on Patterson’s departure for the Tribune-Star and the Post-Tribune.

And there’s some good stuff on the Patterson situation out there from other guys on the IU beat: Dustin Dopirak at the Herald-Times, Pete DiPrimio at the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel and Terry Hutchens and Kyle Neddenriep at The Star.
