Amid reports that Zander Diamont's comments following the Bucket Game prompted an inquiry into the program's handling of injuries, the Indiana quarterback released a statement via Twitter:

A source close to the program told CQ that Diamont's comments may have been a catalyst into the investigation that eventually lead to the Coach Wilson's dismissal. Several other players have tweeted in support of Wilson since news broke early this afternoon, but other former players have made statements that the program mishandled their injuries and the injuries of others.

The University is expected to address the circumstances of Kevin Wilson's dismissal at press conference currently scheduled for 6 PM.
