Indiana preseason No. 1 in Athlon Sports, No. 2 in Lindy’s Sports

The college basketball preview magazines will begin hitting the newsstands shortly and Indiana is being touted as a national championship contender by both Athlon Sports and Lindy’s Sports.

As we mentioned Tuesday, the Hoosiers are No. 1 in the Athlon Sports preview, which will be available on Sept. 25.

The Lindy’s Sports college basketball preview, available on Sept. 11, will have Indiana at No. 2.

The top three teams in Athlon’s preview are Indiana, Louisville and Kentucky and the cover of Lindy’s Sports shows their top ten as follows:

1. Louisville
2. Indiana
3. Michigan
4. N.C. State
5. Kentucky
6. Ohio State
7. Duke
8. Creighton
9. St. Louis
10. UCLA

The Athlon Sports magazine has a regional version with Cody Zeller (after the jump) on the cover and the Lindy’s Sports magazine, pictured below, has a regional cover with Christian Watford, Notre Dame’s Eric Atkins and Purdue’s Terone Johnson.

    Why is Butler not ranked? They seem like a logical top 20 to me

    Actually Hornsby started and Newton generally came off the bench (which is weird in hindsight that he didn’t start over Odle).

  • DannerPerea

    Well, i admitted i’m not very smart. But are you certain you’re not measuring TPs offensive prowess instead of defensive improvement? That’s what we’re talking about improving, right? I think TP may have gotten better defensively with the improved daily competition. Just my humble opinion.

    That’s who I’ve thought of, too. He’s also 2 or 3 inches taller than Dieng.

    Just for reference, how old are you, because there are some in the 40+ age group who probably remember some stuff you don’t.

    I think you’re right but in defense of most of the refs, when you have done the same thing over and over for 3 years and done it without really giving it a second thought, it was probably hard to stop that fourth year. TP surely has more than a couple of breaks coming to him in aspects of his life off of the court cause he sure didn’t get very many of them on the court.

    You’re right, Hornsby did start most nights. I generally have an excellent memory, but in this case it failed me.

    Preach it. It sounds like some of them prefer last years pre season expectations when MOST people on here (not me I predicted 24-7 lucky though should have been better) predicting 16-15 and barely making the NIT. Well fellas this teams for real. I beleive they are the best team in the country. If they play up to their potential they should hang #6. Have a little faith in CTC and the guys on the court. We may be the depest team since UNC in 96 or 98. Rasheed Wallace and Stackhouses teams. IU will simply wear teams down by the last 10 minutes of the game. Being able to rotate 10 to 11 guys and not losing much while doing it will be too much to overcome. I*m not saying they cant be beat on the road but the tournament is played on nuetral courts. If we play in Columbus and Indianapolis you should put some money on us going to the final 4 for sure. Its gonna take ateam playing their best game of the year and IU playing terrible for us not to get it done. Were hanging #6 so get used to it and enjoy. Its been a long time coming. GO IU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
