Hoosier Brunch

Happy Valentine’s Day to all you Scoop readers out there!

1. HOOSIERS HQ

If you were to look at IU’s resume blindly, do the Hoosiers get into the NCAA Tournament? I did the work for you in that department.

Cody Zeller was honored again and the Hoosiers bumped up in the polls, Dustin wrote.

2. INDIANA BASKETBALL

Compared to the 2012 class, Indiana’s 2013 class hasn’t looked as elite, but according to the new Rivals 2013 rankings, the Hoosiers’ class is sixth-best in the country.

Avi Zaleon of the IDS gives out Valentine’s Day gifts to Indiana players and coaches in his holiday column.

Michigan is still in reach of the Big Ten crown behind OSU and MSU, while Indiana and others trail behind, LaMond Pope of the Journal Gazette wrote.

Yogi Ferrell isn’t just a product of talent; he’s been working hard to become one of the best point guards in high school basketball, Pete DiPrimio of the News-Sentinel writes.

Sean Morrison of 247Sports.com wrote a solid feature on Ron Patterson’s quest to prove his doubters wrong.

Matt Dollinger and Greg Rosenstein come back with another episode of Podcast on the Brink, this time with IDS writer Kevin Bowen and former IDSer Nathan Hart to talk about what lies ahead this season.

3. TWO FOR THE ROAD

First, some shameless self-promotion. I wrote a story for Yahoo! Sports’ ThePostGame on Utah football’s new assistant coach Sharrieff Shah who, just last week, was an attorney, not a coach.

Second, a h/t to Laffy on this video, which is awesome. The final minutes of Milan vs. Muncie Central in 1954. Yeah, the Hoosiers game.
