Q&A from Poland: Jordan Hulls

I’m back once again with more Q&A, hope everyone enjoyed last week’s blog and continue to read and ask me questions about anything they’d like to know.  Since being in the second stage of the season, we haven’t played as well as we could.  We are now 0-3 versus the other Top 6 teams that we are playing, all have been close games but we haven’t been able to close any out unfortunately.  Again, this doesn’t risk our playoff spot, just effects our seeding once the playoffs start at the end of this month.  In other news, everything seems to be fine at home with the family and friends so that’s always good to hear!  I’m doing by best to keep track of the other sports going on at IU right now but it’s been tougher since we are playing more games but I’m hoping all is going well there too!

Here are this weeks questions, courtesy of Andy Graham.  Enjoy!

“Your sister has had to work her way back from injury, but her IU women’s team has had a turn-around sort of season and played in the NIT. Have you spoken much with Kaila about how enjoyable it’s been to be on that ride?”

— Yes, it’s been an awesome year for the IU women’s team and I’m so happy Kaila was able to be part of this historical year for the program.  I do talk to Kaila quite a bit and it’s unfortunate that she was injured again but she’s been doing really well in handling the situation and is making the most out of it by doing other things to help the team in any way she can.  Of course she would have loved to have played more than she was able to but again she’s enjoyed the girls on the team and the run they’ve made this season.  The future is looking very bright with the great coaching staff and the girls that put together the team!
“If you could say one thing and one thing only, right now, to Coach Tom Crean, what you say?”

— If I could say one thing to Coach, I would say “Keep the Faith”.
“(Chipotle’s in London notwithstanding,) what has become your favorite Polish food?”
—  The type of food I eat here isn’t far different than what I’m used to.  For instance, I eat a lot of pasta here which isn’t much different at all but the meat is a little different because I  can’t always translate what type it is, but for the most part I’ve tried to make it as much like home as possible.  As far as a pure Polish dish that I have tried and liked, I would have to say their baked goods are really good, from their donuts to their fresh bread and I also really like their perogi’s with meat inside.  I’d say the way they eat is a little different than what I’m used to,  like eating soup and bread before every meal is something I never really did at home.  Lastly, the portion sizes are much smaller per meal than what I’m used to at home, which is something I’ve had to get used to and learn to bring some of my own snacks on the road, ha!  Overall, it’s been pretty good for me because I used to be really picky with what I ate, but I’ve gotten a lot better with it since I’ve been overseas.  I’m growing up so fast…
That’s it for this week but remember to keep asking questions!  Until next time, Stay Classy BTown!

  1. Hello Jordan,
    Thank you for the posts from overseas, and we are so very proud of you, and all of the Hoosiers everywhere that are doing well in whatever they have chosen to do!
    I have been an Indiana Hoosier die hard fan since I was born, and have watched the Hoosiers hang three Banners. In all of that time, and thru all of those great players, and there have been MANY, you are my all time favorite Hoosier. You are what Indiana basketball is all about, and represent Indiana basketball and this wonderful state as well as anyone ever has.
    My wife and I have a 7 year old son, McKinley, and you are his hero. He still watches games from last year to see you play. He never was able to see you play live, but always keeps hope that you will play here again. He is attending Coach Crean’s camp this summer.
    I know you are a very busy man, but thank you again for taking the time to stay in touch via your posts, and know we are still following your career every step of the way, and lastly, thank you for your years at IU, helping bring back our program, and most importantly, for being a wonderful hero and roll model for our son.
    Best of luck to your team in the play-offs, and to you!

    1. Mr. Stewart,

      Thank you for the kind words, I always appreciate hearing back from Hoosier Nation! Being a former Indiana Hoosier is an honor and I’m thankful for all the opportunities it has given me. Thanks again for the support and encouragement, it means a lot! Tell your son, McKinley, hello for me and to Dream Big!

      All the best,

      Jordan
