Hoosier Morning

1. HOOSIERS HQ
Yogi Ferrell’s hot shooting and stingy defense sparked Indiana over No. 10 Michigan Sunday, Dustin wrote.

Sunday’s performance against the Wolverines was just the latest in a string of strong defensive outings, where the Hoosiers are slowly forming an identity, I wrote.

IU’s defensive wrinkle was unlike anything Michigan coach John Beilein had seen before, Andy wrote.

The IU women’s basketball team scored its first Big Ten road win in nearly three years Sunday at Illinois, we reported.

2. IT’S INDIANA
Indiana’s defense, particularly on Nik Stauskas, was reminiscent of what Duke did in December, the last Michigan road loss, Rod Beard of the Detroit News writes.

Canadian Nik Stauskas was a foreigner in Michigan’s offense on Sunday, Brendan F. Quinn of MLive.com wrote.

Yogi Ferrell put together a “We’re not worthy” performance on Sunday, Evan Hoopfer of the Indiana Daily Student writes.

The Indiana football team picked up three more commitments on Sunday, including the flip of wide receiver Simmie Cobbs from Purdue, Justin Kenny of the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel writes.

3. ONE FOR THE ROAD
Well, if “We’re not worthy,” then Wayne’s World it is.

  1. Just letting Jeremeh know he looks cute in that blue shirt but Hoosiers don’t have an identity just yet. They play well when they’re underdogs and when the opposition is not taking them seriously. As soon as they’re supposed to win one they’re back struggling.

    Still, I agree with Punjab: W at Minny, W at home with Penn State, W at Purdue and big W with Iowa at home with a Will Sheehey shooting his mind out is what’s coming. Don’t know much about the game in Evanston (possible W if they keep the underdog mentality) or the one at Kohl’s center (though it’s been relatively impossible for Wiscy to win there lately). But I wouldn’t be surprised to see 6 W’s in a row.

    Crean is improving. Yogi is awesome. The chemistry between the two is key and so far it’s been outstanding. Yogi is a really really really smart kid.

  2. Looking at the offers some of our new football recruits are turning down in favor of IU is really impressive. The four players from Florida have received offers from some big time football programs. With them choosing IU over those other schools, it’s a sign that IU has significantly improved its recruiting. And of course, I especially appreciate when a player is flipped away from Purdue. Now, let’s get them all signed on Wednesday.
