IUUMITH0016The Hoosiers are who we thought they were — the No. 1 team in the country.

Podcast on the Brink hosts Matt Dollinger and Justin Albers return this week to break down IU’s big win over Michigan and discuss what the team needs to do to stay on top the rest of the season.

In addition, Baltimore Sun writer and former Herald-Times sports editor Chris Korman joins the program to discuss the evolution of Tom Crean and the IU program since he covered them in Bloomington.

Finally, Alex Bozich of Inside The Hall comes on the podcast to answer some of your IU-related questions posted on the ITH premium forum.

Among the topics discussed this week:

· How Indiana took down ex-No.1 Michigan
· Victor Oladipo’s pair of superhuman dunks
· Crean’s IU tenure and his ability as a coach
· Types of teams that could give Indiana trouble
· Importance of depth on a team chasing a title

    I saw one of the topics on Podcast . The type of team that would give IU the most problems is one with big slashing guards ,and widebodies in the frontcourt who can push Zeller and Watford off of the blocks

  • Wow, they gave a nod to the Monty Python craziness I started in the forum and answered my question. I feel special.

    Chris Korman – “I’ve probably seen maybe 30 minutes of Indiana basketball this season and I didn’t see much the past couple of seasons.” Seems like a great guest for an Indiana basketball podcast.

    I enjoyed Korman’s work for the Herald when he was covering Indiana in Bloomington but surely there are guests who have paid attention to the team a bit more than 30 minutes this season.

    You fight with the strength of many men, Sir Knight. That’s why you’re special. Good job.

    I thought the same thing, C&C. I was excited when I saw Korman was going to be on the podcast because I really enjoyed his work when he was in Bloomington. I even followed him for a while at his new paper because I enjoy his writing. But listening to his analysis on the podcast was a total disappointment. Offering criticisms of CTC based on watching “maybe 30 minutes of Indiana basketball” this year and “not much” the last couple seasons and from what he remember from when CTC was at Marquette didn’t impress me at all.
