Proof positive that Bill Lynch is not
Kellen Lewis - QB - Hoosiers
Hoping to nip a quarterback controversy before it has a chance to sprout, Indiana coach Bill Lynch has named Ben Chappell the starting quarterback and moved Kellen Lewis to a starting wide receiver spot.
Lewis struggled through a 2008 while dealing with injuries and a quarterback battle, and now he'll have to line up outside full time. He goes from definite fantasy factor to an afterthought at wide receiver. IU will likely still incorporate Lewis' skills as a passer into the offense in some fashion, though it won't be enough for consistent production. Mar. 24 - 3:15 p.m. ET
Ben Chappell - QB - Hoosiers
Indiana head coach Bill Lynch has decreed that Ben Chappell is his starting quarterback and will see the first-team snaps during practice, thus relegating former quarterback Kellen Lewis to wide receiver, where's he's currently listed as a starter.
Lynch is attempting to make IU into more of a "downhill running football team" and he feels the best way to do this is with a traditional quarterback under center. Chappell has a fraction of the fantasy value that Kellen Lewis would have as starting quarterback, though we still don't think we've seen Kellen Lewis take his last snap as Indiana quarterback.
