    Best part? 4 out of 5 on the coach’s squad will be gone next season….only our guy comes back!

    He 100% leaves to join another college program if many on these comments get their wish and Crean is fired

    I started The Yogi Meter on the Premium Forum (which is growing fast, what are you waiting for?) on January 2nd. Here is the latest entry. Enjoy!

    The Yogi Meter is still ticking.

    Yogi’s national leading (and Indiana record) streak of at least one three-pointer is still intact and now stands at 62 straight games.

    Here’s the update on the all-time scoring, all-time 3-pointers made and all-time assist lists:

    – Yogi’s 21 points against MSU brings him to 1,320 career points,
    slipping him past Jordan Hulls (1318) into 26th place on the IU all-time
    points list.

    – Yogi now has made 184 three-pointers for his career, good for seventh
    place and just two shy of Bracey Wright and Brian Evans tied in fifth

    – Yogi’s career assist total is 427 career assists, seventh all-time best and 5 assists behind 6th all-time best, Randy Whitman.

    Yogi joins an elite group of Hoosiers as he is the fifth Hoosier to have
    1,000 points, 400 assists and 300 rebounds, joining Tom Coverdale,
    Damon Bailey, Randy Wittman and A.J. Guyton.

    He is still on track to meet Millared’s prediction that if Yogi
    returns for his senior season, he could surpass Michael Lewis and become
    the Indiana all-time career assist leader.

    Great season Yogi!

  • SCHoosier

    Well done and well earned Yogi!

  • IUBizmark

    Love and respect Yogi so much!

  • Yes, yes, yes.. Yogi is one of the all-time Indiana greats. I love that kid. It really breaks my heart that some of those game enders did not find the mark. He’s worked awfully hard and deserves better.

  • IUPatrick

    Congrats Kevin Yogi Ferrell!!! What has been asked of you over the past 3 years has been overwhelming… how you have handled it has been amazing and your are a pleasure to watch! Of course, I would love for you to stay…. but will be 100% behind you no matter what. You will always be one of my all-time favorite hoosiers. Way to go Yogi!!

  • Kyl470

    You might be right, but finding the right coach is more important than any player or players.

  • Jeremy

    All I want for Xmas is a new coach!!!

    *Based on nothing.

    I’ve said from day 1 that Yogi will go down as one of the all-time greatest Hoosiers. It’s nice finally to see him get the recognition he deserves. I just hope all his hard work isn’t in vain.

  • Hoosier Hall

    I agree. How much bad luck can a guy have? A couple shots fall in and he is an even bigger hero than what he already is. Not to mention it would change our entire season. The ones I can think of this year are of course the free throw against Mich. St., at Maryland, Purdue at home and I believe he had a chance to tie or go ahead of Eastern Washington. If that shot falls at Maryland, that would have been our huge signature road win and we wouldn’t even be on the bubble.

  • Michael

    I think it’s interesting that an article after a loss gets 200+ comments, but a player being recognized as being one of the best (in the b10) gets 10.

    Fans are odd creatures.

  • deebo

    People like drama not good news unfortunately. I think this is great news, very well deserved yogi.

  • INUnivHoosier

    Yogi deserves it. Great job.

    I hope we get to see him in an Indiana uniform next year.

  • INUnivHoosier

    And can we get Collin Hartman for Comeback Kid of the Year?

  • Well-deserved. Congrats, yogi.

  • calbert40

    A few thoughts.

    1) Congrats to Yogi. A well-deserved honor. His game has taken a step forward each year at IU.

    2) I think Troy and JBJ receiving honorable mention honors is about right. Both have been a little inconsistent to be on the 3rd team, IMO, but have been brilliant at times too. Congrats to both of them as well.

    3) Which B1G coach did NOT select Russell to be on the 1st Team? Kaminsky was the only unanimous selection to the 1st Team by the coaches. Which coach out there thinks there are five better players in the conference than Russell? I’m guessing that is the same coach who didn’t vote for him for Freshman of the year also. I think Trimble and JBJ were both great, but come on! Russell was phenomenal.

    All in all, not too much to complain about this year. There were some curious additions to the honorable mention list, and I would have maybe had some guys like Trice on the 2nd team instead of Newbill, who scores so much because he is the only option on a poor team. But that would be nitpicking.

  • Gregory J. Haggard

    You have a point, and it’s noted, but I believe it had more to do with the ‘heat of the moment’ than whether they support Yogi.
    I just came across the article this morning.
    Truth be told, even with the slide, this team really over achieved.

  • Sargent Meowenstein

    When does the subscription period roll over? Is it by season or calendar year….?

  • Ole Man

    All time favorites, yes. All time greats, well somewhere 5-10 for sure.

  • Ole Man

    It’s by when you sign up–i.e. sign up now, then next March, you’ll be due again.

  • Ole Man

    Craig, you’re simply starting trouble.

  • MarkHoltzHoosier

    Awesome to see some GREAT news on ITH! Congrats to Yogi–I hopefully speak for all Hoosier fans when I say we appreciate all your hard work and have enjoyed watching you have a great individual season!

  • Hoosier gal in Iowa

    Can you also say how much it costs?

  • yimyames


  • Snookafly

    I think that’s fair, but I also think 5-10 out of 115 years of basketball qualifies.

  • Ole Man

    $35.00; cheap for the insight, etc.
    Easily the best IU sight on the net.
    Tell ’em Ole Man sent ya! LOL!

  • Hoosier gal in Iowa

    I already “ran it” by my husband (just to make him feel like he had a choice) and I’ll be signing up later today! Wish I would have known it was that cheap sooner. 🙂

  • Ole Man

    Terrific! See ya on the other side! Been lots of new members joining lately, so don’t be afraid to jump right into the conversation. And please do use my name if you would 🙂 (We get a pat on the back or something)
