A Finch in hand and other football notes.

As has been rumored and inferred is now apparently official: former Warren Central star/five star defensive back Jerimy Finch is enrolled at IU. The Finch recruiting saga predates this blog, but you may recall that Finch initially committed to Michigan but, as the Star article notes, changed his mind in January 2007 and committed to IU. On the eve of signing day, Miami flipped one of Florida's recruits, Florida had a scholarship to give, and Finch signed with the Gators.
Finch played in only three games as a Gator. In the third game of the season, against rival Tennessee, he intercepted a pass but later broke his leg and missed the rest of the season. Finch mentioned that he is going to seek immediate eligibility, but I really don't know if he has a leg to stand on. I'll try to look into it when I have the chance.
In other news, Ken Bikoff of Inside Indiana continues to provide photos of the north end zone construction as it progresses. It appears that the guts of the facility won't be in place until the 2009 season, but at least the structure will be in place. There has been speculation that the seating will be available for 2008, but I haven't read that in any official source.
