Wilson on Barnett, Hughes

Indiana coach Kevin Wilson talked about the return of cornerback Lawrence Barnett and wide receiver Kofi Hughes during a teleconference on Wednesday.

Both players were suspended, along with linebacker Forisse Hardin, for the opener after violating team rules.

"He's been in the playing mix, we've been watching him practice every day," Wilson said of Barnett, a Bishop Luers graduate. "Based on how he practice, we'll see how he plays. He's been out there every day."

Barnett started nine games for the Hoosiers last season.

"The other guys have played well. We played reasonably well the other night," Wilson said. "There's nothing by default. He played some last year, doesn't mean he'll play a lot in this game. We'll wait and see how it goes.

"Receiver-wise, several of those receivers have played as good or better than Kofi. Several of the defensive backs have played as good or better than Lawrence."
