It's Halloween. What else would I be doing? Watching "Friday the 13th" franchise on AMC? (That's exactly what I'd be doing.)

Dolph says groin injury for RB Mark Weisman. I didn't think it was a re-injury of the ankle. He's out for this week.

Indiana is favored by 3, Dolph says. (I don't even know what that means. What is this "favored"?) First time IU has been favored in a Big Ten game since Northwestern 2007.

On Iowa Live reference!!! From Oelwein! Mentioning Phil Haddy, who was fantastic on the show, BTW. If you have 9.2, it's Monday nights at 6:30. Also, it streams on and might also be kept there for replay.

Thanks for watching, Tom from Oelwein.

Indiana's OC Seth Littrell came to IU from Arizona. IU QBs are throwers, who can move a little but not in the realm of Kain Colter.

IU has eight jucos. (Off the top of my head, Iowa has QB Cody Sokol and a few other walk-ons.)

Clock management question (fair question): KF -- Ultimately, it's all on me. Three delay of games, what we categorize as unforced errors. Those are things you have to do better. Three correctable errors. It was processing in the huddle and one was lost at the line of scrimmage.

Punt block, OL: KF -- All three guards showed inexperience, but hung in there. Continued process. Running low on OL. As far as specia teams go, been pleased last four weeks. What happened Saturday was unfortunate, makes it tough to win a game. This case, bad luck. Brad Rogers couldn't go. James Morris to his position. New player to Morris' position. They shifted a player in. Good player, conscientious player, won't happen again. (It was sophomore safety John Lowdermilk.)


Venric Mark's 72-yard run: KF -- One player missed with helmet position by six to 10 inches. (I don't know here, either Morris or DT Louis Trinca-Pasat. LTP as close to making the play. Either way, this play was muddled from the snap.)

KF: Going to rotate three (Nolan MacMillan, Austin Blythe and Jordan Walsh) at guard on Saturday.

KF sorry hearing about ISU LB Jake Knott, who was lost for the season with a torn labrum in a shoulder. He played vs. Baylor without painkillers because of upcoming surgery.

KF on Torrey Campbell and Nate Meier: Injury issues for both. May or may not get back out there this year. (Campbell is a redshirt freshman cornerback who colleague Scott Dochterman believes should switch to WR and Meier is a true freshman who played some kick coverage, but hasn't for a while and could possibly angle for a medical hardship waiver.)

Dual threat QB? -- KF: Not locked in on one type in recruiting. Will meld system around player. Likes the QBs they have on campus.

Ryan from CR: You are the definition of class, coach Ferentz.

And that is the show. Three more of these. Season is going fast.

What should I cover next? Nothing? C'mon, that's not an answer!
