Indiana is No. 8 in the latest ESPN/USA Today coaches poll released earlier this afternoon. The Hoosiers are one of three Big Ten teams ranked in the top 11. So much for the Big Ten being “down” this season.
Michigan State is No. 10 and Wisconsin, the next road opponent for the Hoosiers in the Big Ten, is No. 11.
Memphis is the new No. 1 and received 21 of the possible 31 first place votes. Rounding out the top five: Kansas, Duke, North Carolina and Tennessee.
What are your thoughts on where the Hoosiers sit in the coaches poll? Too high? Too low? Just right?
(Note: The Associated Press Poll will be released later this afternoon.)
