Hoosier Morning

1. HOOSIERS HQ
Indiana gets a second chance to beat Syracuse, the team that ended the Hoosiers’ season last year, Dustin wrote.

Yogi Ferrell might have the most to prove after the previous meeting in the position-by-position breakdown, from Dustin.

Wide receiver Cody Latimer and kicker Mitch Ewald were named second team All-Big Ten Monday, Dustin wrote.

2. IT’S INDIANA
Stopping Yogi Ferrell and Noah Vonleh is a priority for Syracuse, which hasn’t been great defensively other than turnover margin this season, Donna Ditota of the Syracuse Post-Standard writes.

Five things to watch, including the point guard battle, between IU and Syracuse, Mike Waters of the Syracuse Post-Standard writes.

IU football already has its eyes on a bounce-back season in 2014, with the main question being the defense, Sean Morrison of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette writes.

Victor Oladipo’s homecoming game against the Washington Wizards didn’t go so well for the Orlando Magic, but his family, including his father, was in the stands, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel writes.

IU basketball recruiting target Dante Exum is reportedly heading straight to the pros, according to fellow Australian Andrew Bogut, Ronnie Lerner of sportal.com writes.

Indianapolis wide receiver Dominique Booth has decommitted from Tennessee, and IU is among the schools in the hunt, Mark Ambrogi of the Indianapolis Star writes.

Former IU basketball coach Branch McCracken is the subject of a new book, Betsy Reason of the Indianapolis Star wrote.

  1. What the Star’s article by Ambrogi did not say is Kevin Johns was also with Wilson on that in home visit. Tennessee did just what they had to do about who should be part of the early enrollment but with that decision they may have gifted Booth to KW and KJ.

    Tim Bennett led the nation in passes defended(21)and passes broken up(20).

  2. Talk about power. Delta announced a plane maintenance problem. The ‘find another flight’ passengers noticed the UF basketball team was boarding the disabled plane.

    Seems as if the UF plane had a problem and Delta c/a’ed a flight to accommodate them. National TV game and all.

    And the photographer site for Jordy’s team. Worth the visit to see the cheerleaders.

    Tonight’s game. After what, 6-7 games I have no idea how good or bad this team is. Too lose by 1 to UConn with nothing out of Vonieh? Not be a surprise to win by 10 or lose by 10.

  3. Ron-

    Damn. You are correct…and thank you very much for the suggestion to visit the photos. Wowza. Those Polish cheerleaders sorta give new meaning to solidarity.
