On Tuesday afternoon Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson announced that sophomore wide receiver Caleb Cornett has been dismissed from the team. David Woods of the Indianapolis Star first reported this news on Twitter.

Cornett, a 6’3” receiver out of Ben Davis in Indianapolis had been suspended in August of this year because of an arrest for getting into a fight at 3 a.m. on Kirkwood Avenue in Bloomington. The troubled sophomore was already on probation due to a reckless driving conviction in December of 2013. He played in 11 games in 2013, mainly on special teams, and has not appeared for the Hoosiers this season.

The dismissal will have no effect on the Hoosiers talent wise going forward, but is just another case of damaging news for Kevin Wilson and the program who are 3-7 on the 2014 season and have lost two commits, Tommy Stevens and Titus Booker to the 2015 class to other schools. The Hoosiers travel to Columbus, Ohio Saturday to take on the Buckeyes. The game is at noon and will be televised on the Big Ten Network.

The losses for Indiana keep on coming. While the current Hoosiers were defeated in New Jersey 45-23 by Rutgers a future Hoosier, running back prospect Titus Booker, decommitted and will be heading to Madison, Wisconsin to play for the Badgers. Booker announced his decision to flip to Wisconsin to night via Twitter. Booker committed to Indiana in July after receiving an offer after taking an unofficial visit back on June 21st. Booker was also on campus for the Indiana-Maryland game on September 27th. Coach James Patton for the Hoosiers recruited him.

A 3-star cornerback/running back out of Grayslake, Illinois.  247 Sports ranks booker as the 24th best prospect in the state and the 74th best running back in the nation. However, Booker projects to play corner at the next level. At 5’11” and 172 lbs. Booker has the size to match-up with receivers in the Big Ten and according to Rivals.com possesses 4.47 speed and a 37-inch vertical, so he can go up and get the ball. This week has to be very concerning for the Hoosier coaching staff who has seen their recruiting class drop to just 10 prospects and are now ranked 71st in the nation. Right now it would look as if the decommitment of Tommy Stevens may start a mass exodus from the #CrimsonArmy15.

--Piscataway, NJ- The Indiana Hoosiers (3-7, 0-6) clinched another losing season despite a record day from running back Tevin Coleman in a 45-23 loss to the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (6-4, 2-4). The Hoosiers wasted a career high 307 yards rushing performance by Coleman. The Hoosiers started the game with a gutsy onside kick call that resulted in a Griffin Oakes 48-yard field goal. Rutgers tied the game at three with 3:12 left in the first quarter and took a 10-3 lead on freshman Robert Martin’s 2-yard run with 6:12 left in the half. The last thirty seconds of the first half provided more fireworks than the first 29:30, as Tevin Coleman broke loose for a 67-yard touchdown to put the Hoosiers up 13-0.  Janarion Grant of the Scarlet Knights then took the ensuing kickoff 71 yards down to the Hoosier 29-yard line. Rutgers’ kicker Kyle Federico ended up hitting the cross bar on a 46-yard field goal attempt. Indiana received the second half kick and Coleman nearly went for another touchdown as he scampered 68 yards down the sideline to the Rutgers five. The Hoosiers could not punch it in from there and had to settle for a 28-yard Oakes field goal to push the score to 16-10. Rutgers would grab the lead back on their next drive going 80 yards in six plays capped off by a 47-yard run by Martin. After a three-and-out by the Indiana offense, Rutgers increased their lead to 24-16 when quarterback Gary Nova found Leonte Carroo for the first of his two scores on the day. The Scarlet Knights would take advantage of a fumbled fake punt by Erich Toth and score on a nine-yard Josh Hicks run. The Hoosiers trailed 31-16 heading into the fourth quarter. The Hoosiers got right back in the game when quarterback Zander Diamont found Shane Wynn wide open in the end zone for a 28-yard touchdown. It was Diamont’s first career touchdown pass and the Hoosiers’ first passing score since October 11th against Iowa. From there the wheels feel off for Indiana. The Hoosiers had just received the ball at their own 41-yard line down one score when Tevin Coleman carries the ball six yards, but after the play true freshman tight end Jordan Fuchs, a one-time Rutgers commit, was called for a personal foul. This killed any and all momentum Indiana had as Diamont was sacked two plays later and IU punted back to Rutgers, who scored on a 56-yard pass from Nova to Carroo to go back up two scores. Rutgers would cap off the scoring with another short run by Martin to make it 45-23.
