Damarlo Belcher dismissed from Indiana

Just days after being suspended for the Northwestern game following an unspecified violation of team rules, Indiana WR Damarlo Belcher's absence from the team has just been made permanent by head coach Kevin Wilson. In a statement released Monday afternoon, Wilson announced that Belcher had been dismissed from the team.

Belcher surprised Wilson and the Indiana faithful last spring by announcing he would return for his senior season, despite leading the Big Ten in receiving last year and the inevitable flux a brand new coaching staff brings. And while Belcher's production this season was far off of his 2010 pace, as of Monday, he was still leading the Hoosiers in receptions even though he'd missed three games before his dismissal.

Belcher was just two catches away from meeting James Hardy's career mark for receptions at Indiana. That record, clearly, will continue to stand.

Sophomore Kofi Hughes will likely assume the mantle of Indiana's top wide receiver for the rest of the season and beyond.

Damarlo Belcher dismissed from Indiana

You know the Indiana football team is a disgrace when the guy below me is looking forward to basketball season at IU.  Maybe this is the year they get over the hump and get that long desired NIT bid.  A quick look at the schedule and it looks like last years where they got fat off of cupcakes and put in their place once the Big 10 season started.  Stoney Brook, Chattanooga, Savannah State, Gardner Webb, Stetson, Howard and UMBC all within the first 12 games, a 7-5 or 8-4 start looks promising.  All kidding aside, the funny part is he was 2 catches away from tying James Hardy's record, rumor has it that Wilson and Hardy are distant cousins thrice removed but that's just a rumor though!

Who cares?  I am an IU fan and I couldn't care less.  Our team stinks and isn't worth watching anyways.  Thank God basketball is coming soon....
