Hoosiers are No. 24 in USA Today Poll
October 17, 2013 – The first USA TODAY Coaches Poll of the season came out this afternoon, and Indiana debuted at No. 24, stuck between UCLA (no. 23) and Virginia (No. 25).
(A quick tease: Indiana has largely ranged from 20-25 or narrowly unranked in a lot of pundits’ preseason polls thus far, with one notable exception, which we’ll explore in a blog post later today. Stay tuned for that.)
Some quick annotation for those who might be interested:
• The Big Ten has five teams ranked in the Top 25 — Michigan State at No. 2, Michigan at No. 9, Ohio State at No. 10, Wisconsin at No. 21 and IU at No. 24.
