Crimson wins spring game

Indiana coach Bill Lynch said the spring game went about as expected. The Crimson team defeated the Cream 17-10.

The Crimson squad pulled ahead late when Ben Chappell threw a 21-yard touchdown to Charles Love III with 3:50 to go in the fourth quarter.

The game only had two penalties, but did feature four interceptions (including two by Dusty Kiel) and three fumbles.

"Any time you split the team like that, it's going to be a little bit sloppy as compared to the rest of the spring," Lynch said. "You have so many guys playing out of position. Both offensive lines became makeshift after Brewer got hurt early. Alfeld was playing tackle, he's probably never played tackle before. Any time you get in that situation, it's not going to be as clean.

"The game is for the players. They had fun. That's really what it's about. You just know it's not going to be as clean as the practices because you have guys playing next to each other that haven't throughout the spring."

Chappell finished with 142 passing yards and one touchdown. Wide receiver Tandon Doss led the Cream team with six catches for 67 yards.

Antonio Banks, a 2010 signee who came to IU in January, had 49 yards on 11 carries for the Crimson team.

"He's one of those guys, you just notice him," Lynch said. "He breaks tackles finds seams and he really did that at every practice all spring."
