Minor Surprise? Basketball is up to 24 in coaches poll after dismantling Iowa yesterday, but still out of the AP. They looked at times like they were a step ahead of anything Iowa would try to do offensively. It was good to see some inside play, outside of the fast break play. You can’t judge how the Indiana game changed the mind set of this team until a few more games are played, however something seems to be clicking. I hope it continues through the remainder of the schedule.

#25 in the AP. Also a surprise I'd say.
Yeah, I wouldn't have been surprised if they hadn't moved into the top 25 after the near-debacle at Indiana.
Toughy this week @Illinois. They're always very tough on their home floor. 1-1 would be an acceptable week, 2-0 would be fantastic, as the two after that are @PSU and Northwestern, both of which they need to be winning if they're expecting to be a player in the conference title race or to solidify the tourney possibilities.
The important thing is that they're back on the front page of the scoreboards on websites, not buried 5 clicks and 13 pages later on the Big 10 scoreboard.
Yeah, sorry - AP poll I looked at had old data, but said it was updated.
That is the least of the worries considering the troll factor today. Just thought that would make you even happier. WEEE!!
