Dumes will return for Wisconsin game

The indefinite suspension is over. Turns out, it really wasn’t all that indefinite after all. After sitting out two games for throwing elbows in a couple of different games, most notably against Michigan State, Devan Dumes will return for Thursday’s home game against Wisconsin.

Indiana coach Tom Crean talked about the decision this afternoon and our friend Chris Korman captured the words from IU’s leader:

“We think we’ve covered the ground that needed to be covered,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said after practice today.

The notion of an “indefinite” suspension seemed a bit ridiculous from the get-go. Sure, Dumes deserved to sit out a few games, but he wasn’t exactly throwing haymakers out there. As Crean talked about following the Illinois game, he wanted to make sure that he, the Big Ten (or Jim Delaney) and Fred Glass all felt comfortable with the punishment and apparently two games was the magic number.

    This is exactly as it ought to be. We cannot know if he learned/changed unless he plays. I now hope he kicks some serious butt in the game .

    I read too many idiotic comments about kicking him off the team or revoking his scholarship. I want to see 15 pts, 4 rebs, 4 stls, 3 assists and only 1 TO while holding Bohannon to 8pts or less.

    Did you guys see the McDonalds All-American team? 5 players rated behind Watford made the cut. To include the “Wear twins.”

    I am wondering if the fact they are caucasian and going to Duke had anything to do with that decision? These guys are rated in the 60s by every major recruiting site. Sorry if that sounds bitter but the politics in the college game really make me sick sometimes.

    Agree with Jerry, some real morons wanting him kicked off. Clearly they are the same people who've never played a sport in there life. I hope to see a good game. Will be important for Dumes to not force anything. I fear the Big Ten is becoming unwatchable.

    Personally I like on-ball pressure and physical defense so I donot mind the B10 .

    If I recall you are in Boston and watch BC and 'Cuse, even Providence jacking shots from anywhere anytime.

    Kstate player Clemente got 1 game ( so far ) for elbow and then a head slap last weekend. I fear too many of us IU fans think we are sole protectors of moral high ground in college basketball. I like the high ground but you donot get banners that say ” NCAA Moral High Ground Champions”.

    Good. Let that motivate Watford to show them the rest of his career they were wrong.

    The “Wear twins” are indeed caucasion, but they are going to UNC and not Duke. I've never seem them play, but they played Indiana Elite with IU recruits Capobianco and Hulls and other top recruits. As I recall they didn't do well.
