Hoosier Morning


1. HOOSIERS HQ
Indiana is making hay at the free-throw line this season, Dustin writes.

Lindsey Vrooman’s Big Ten record in the 500 freestyle highlighted Day 2 of the Big Ten Swimming and Diving Championships for Indiana, we reported.

All-Big Ten teams, conference and national player of the year awards and coach of the year awards were among the IU sports chat topics yesterday for Dustin and I.

2. IT’S INDIANA
Can’t-miss prospect Yogi Ferrell is living up to the hype with the No. 1 Hoosiers, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star writes.

It’s like 1990 all over again in Bedford with a Bailey on the court and the Stars in the semistate, Kyle Neddenriep of the Indianapolis Star writes.

After playing everybody in the Big Ten at least once, Michigan’s Trey Burke says Indiana is the best team, Mark Snyder of the Detroit Free Press writes.

A straw poll for national player of the year has Trey Burke first, Victor Oladipo second and Cody Zeller sixth, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com blogs.

Will Sheehey is becoming college basketball’s most punchable face, but Indiana still tops the power rankings, Mark Titus of Grantland.com writes.

3. POTPOURRI
You’ve never heard of West Liberty coach Jim Crutchfield, but maybe you should if college basketball’s scoring decline is ever to change, Michael Weinreb of Grantland.com writes.

4. ONE FOR THE ROAD
In case you haven’t seen this, a promo video by American Family Insurance featuring IU recruit Stanford Robinson.

    Loved the Robinson video. As much of a joy it’s been to watch this year’s team execute beautiful, skilled basketball I still can’t wait to see the raw athleticism of next year’s team and their growth.

    Aruss,

    Not like I’m alone on this, but I’ve been trying to point out what a well-rounded player (specifically ball-handling and passing) that Troy Williams is… That he isn’t just an athlete…

    Now he’s either putting up, or threatening, triple-doubles almost every game.

    not to take the focus off this year at all, but you’re right that nest year will be fun… For different reasons.

    Still bored..

    1..ncaa. Mark Emmert received a vote of confidence from ncaa executive committee. So, how about that ncaa rule that the head coach is held responsable for any actions by his assistants/associates. But the ncaa itself does not apply this rule to themselves. What a joke.

    2..Texas. Last time I rode thru Texas, I thought east Texas around SR 69 was really nice. Than I got on #287 with a railroad track next to it. So dry that everytime the train hit it’s brakes at an crossing it would start a grass fire. Always kinda went around Texas after that.

    3..One of our potential recruits, 2014 is named
    Goodluck Okonoboh. Can hear the student section now as he stands at the free throw line….GOODLUCK… (from ITH)

    4..So far IU has had 1,485 field goal attempts. 959 of those shots were by guys who will be gone next year, guessing Vic & Cody going NBA.

    5. Harvard. Thanks for the link to a potential soul-mate. I would choose the same one the guy did – for the same reason – but a different use. Have not had 4 wheels since 2001. Just the bike. And she may be the perfect cushioned backrest.

    Kind of a downer for Game Day. After the IU game, Butler game and Notre Dame Game Days it’s Ky?

    No one is the better player of the year than Oladipo!

    Congrats to will on his 9 for 9 night.

    Nice to see what he can do when he stops his hot-dog nonsense.

    And winning at MSU was even bigger than beating Kaintuck last year.

    The guys are finally playing to their potential.

    Just when you thought it was safe to come out of the house.

    Talk about irony.

    You use more vulgar language on here than everyone else put together and you get a free pass because you brown-nose Dustin all the time.

    I got kicked off for laughing at people for crying about the refs non-stop.

    Dustin…what is going on here? I will assume, while giving you the benefit of the doubt, somehow your filter broke down and you will rectify it. And Harvard, your comment helps nothing, absolutely nothing, it makes things worse. Simply put, on this issue, please shut up!

    Everyone else, for the benefit of the blog, please make no answers, statements, comments or retort whatsoever.

    He has no “filter”….he banned my IP address……..which is very easy to get around.

    Sure is odd you NEVER rip HH for HIS vulgar language when he’s the worst one on here.

    By far.

    H4H, so right you are.

    Must have been easier to find a new IP addy than to sue the Scoop! It was a pleasant 2 weeks and I did enjoy it while it lasted.

    Alright, let’s head off the smart comments at the pass. The situation has been handled — back to your regularly scheduled Scoop.

  • TsaoTsuG #14


    Sunday, February 24, 2013 - 9:20 PM EDT

    Price, where does the “tsk, tsk” come from? I see no ‘smart comments’, only appreciation for a recently good atmosphere and disappointment at how it broke down.

    Sunday, February 24, 2013 - 9:25 PM EDT

    Tsao …. I couldn’t agree more!

  • Big Hoosier/Ben #16

    Tsao,

    I think Jeremy was referring to “The Proposed Lawsuit” against the Scoop more then anything.

Scoop Poll:

Can the Hoosiers make a bowl game without Nate Sudfeld?
