Around the Hall: Zeller draws Andrew Luck comparison

  • 05/09/2012 12:15 pm in

Around the Hall is recommended reading from the Inside the Hall staff:

+ Tom Crean talks to Myron Medcalf of about Cody Zeller and says that his brother-in-law Jim Harbaugh believes Zeller can be like Andrew Luck.

+ Medcalf also conducted a Q & A with Crean where preseason expectations, Victor Oladipo and the incoming recruits are all discussed.

+ Louisville coach Rick Pitino told Eric Crawford of The Louisville Courier-Journal that the Cardinals and Hoosiers will not meet next season. C.L. Brown, also of the C-J, writes that the two schools are discussing a game for the 2013-2014 season.

+ Dick Vitale believes it’s a sad time for college basketball with rivalries ending.

+ Yogi Ferrell was named to the fifth team of The Courier-Journal’s annual super five.

+ Several days old, but Zeller tops the list of NBA prospects returning to school over at SB Nation.

    When we had Damon Bailey, Greg Graham, Calbert Cheaney, Alan Henderson, and Matt Nover going in to the 1992 tournament, we had a real shot at the National Championship……..that was exactly 20 years ago. We have waited 20 years to go in to a season with a legitimate opportunity to win it all. I am going to enjoy every minute of every game no matter who we are playing. Teams like this don’t come around all the time. What if Nerlens Noel gets dq’ed for the season? Kentucky will be lucky to finish 3rd in a terrible SEC. From National Champs to Nobodies. It can happen that fast. It seems Tom Crean has put us in a position to be good for a long time, but we don’t know his desire to coach at the next level……..The Big Ten will get us ready for the tournament regardless, so I am going to sit back and enjoy watching Zeller and the boys whether its them dominating the little sisters of the poor, or scrapping to crack the 50 point mark at Wisconsin when the refs have laden all our stars with foul trouble…I can;t wait for this season to start

    When I go read the articles on ESPN, I often scroll down to the comments just out of curiosity. Some of the people who comment on there are just plain stupid. It really makes me realize how nice it is to have Inside The Hall. The vast majority of people on here truly understand basketball to some extent. But that makes sense because Hoosier Nation is the smartest fanbase in sports.

    Slow news day when you need to resort to a Dicky V article.

    Actually, I said this when Zeller signed. That he would do for IU what Mannig did for Tennessee. That’s how big a get he was. It would be great if we could hang another banner with him. At least we are in contention again. It’s been too long.

    Everytime I read an article on ESPN i read the comments. The content that they allow on their site is shameful. But i do enjoy seeing all of the people who get on there and claim IU is “way overrated.” They’re best agreement against us is….. “they haven’t proven anything yet” You know your the best when you’ve got haters galore.

    I like to count how many times a pUKe fan says “we” when discussing the team…it always makes me laugh.

    Who is Mannig? U mean Manning & Kansas? Lol. Zeller is better.
