Hoosier Morning


1. HOOSIERS HQ
Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller have been constants this season for Indiana, but the other starters stepping up enabled the Hoosiers to beat Minnesota, Dustin writes.

Among Saturday’s takeaways, another win over a top 10 team at Assembly Hall sets up a clash for first in the Big Ten with Wisconsin, I wrote.

2. IT’S INDIANA
Indiana has the balance, but does it have the depth to ultimately succeed, asks Tim Sullivan of the Louisville Courier-Journal.

The Hoosiers still have plenty of room for improvement, Mike DeCourcy of the Sporting News writes.

3. BIG TEN COUNTRY
Maybe the notion of being No. 1 got to Michigan in Sunday’s loss at Ohio State, Nick Baumgardner of MLive.com writes.

Aaron Craft used defense to get the better of Trey Burke in the Buckeyes’ upset win, Bob Hunter of the Columbus Dispatch writes.

4. ONE FOR THE ROAD
In honor of the Hoosiers’ constants, it’s the Soggy Bottom Boys with “Man Of Constant Sorrow.”

    It’s funny, I basically said the same thing Jordy did, “They can be better and I hold them to a higher standard”, and I’m called a “fake fan” over it.

    “I’m always looking to see what we can get better at,” Hulls told Sporting News. “We played great in the first half, but we hold ourselves to a high standard. We should play that way all the time.”

    Go figure.

    The Big Ten is going to be so tough this year. IU has to hold on at home to beat Minny, MSU gets a scare from Neb., OSU goes out to a big lead on Mich, but almost loses that game, Wisc looks pretty good in the first few games, and Purdue will be tough at home. Whoever survives this league and wins it should receive a #1 seed just for surviving. Right now, I don’t think you can pick a favorite especially the way Michigan shot the ball yesterday. This league is pretty wide open. Gonna be fun to watch! Go IU!

    I want IU to crush Wisconsin. I really want this game to be a world class butt whipping. If IU get’s up big, I want Crean to keep his foot on the gas and make this a blow out. Time for a little pay-back!

    ^ I think it was a world class butt whipping. Podonkey: genius!

Can the Hoosiers make a bowl game without Nate Sudfeld?
