Inside the Hall:
In the spirit of the holiday season, Podcast On The Brink is bringing you a special Thanksgiving edition today to help you get through a weekend with the in-laws.
Matt Dollinger and Greg Rosenstein welcome Herald-Times beat writer Dustin Dopirak to the show to discuss the Hoosiers’ hot start and their much-anticipated showdown with Butler on Sunday.
The three also talk about IU’s newfound leaders, Victor Oladipo’s staggering improvement and whether or not the Hoosiers are a deep team.
In addition, Matt and Greg call ChronicHoosier to find out what IU fans should be thankful for this Thanksgiving (hint: Tijan). Chronic also gives his two cents on Cody Zeller’s emergence, Tom Pritchard’s fallout and whether or not an IU fan should every marry a Purdue graduate.
So tune in this week and enjoy. Also, feel free to drop us a note (and/or Turkey leftovers) at firstname.lastname@example.org.

BEST OF MAXIM
In wins over Savannah State and Garnder-Webb, Indiana dished out 35 assists on 57 field goals.
Simply put, this team is moving the ball better and finding the open man.
In the latest edition of Film Session, we’ll look at Christian Watford. Once a recipient of the ball in the post and mostly looking to score, Watford is now finding teammates out of the low block and in the paint...
Between the 11:09 and 9:21 mark in the second half of Indiana’s win over Garnder-Webb, Will Sheehey scored 10 straight points for the Hoosiers.
“They were all in the flow of the game; they were all from great passes,” said the sophomore after the win.
A fitting line for Indiana’s offense through five games.
A deeper look at Sheehey’s buckets in the latest edition of Film...
For the second consecutive week, Indiana forward Cody Zeller has been named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week.
The Washington, Indiana product averaged 18.5 points and 7.0 rebounds in a pair of IU wins over Evansville and Savannah State.
Zeller shared the honor last week with Iowa’s Aaron White.
Through four games, Zeller is averaging 15 points, 7.3 rebounds and 3.2 steals per...
Musings on a 73-49 win over the Bulldogs:
For the first 25 minutes of this one, Indiana struggled with energy.
But Victor Oladipo, as he was born to do, made sure it would not last.
A steal by the sophomore and subsequent assist to Cody Zeller just over five minutes into the second half ignited the Assembly Hall faithful. From there, the rout was on.
The Hoosiers picked up the tempo...
Yahoo! Sports: Ten impressive college hoops starts
I’m impressed by Indiana. The Hoosiers haven’t played anybody, but in the last few years that still didn’t guarantee victory. This season they’re 5-0 with five dominant victories. Along the way they’re second nationally in 2-point field-goal percentage (61.2 percent).
Freshman Cody Zeller has been sensational without trying...
Five games into the season, the 2011-12 Indiana Hoosiers have yet to be challenged.
Four games in Assembly Hall and one at the Ford Center in Evansville have produced five wins by 20 points or more by Indiana. That’s never happened in the history of the program.
Dig into the box scores and you’ll find little to nitpick with the way Tom Crean’s team has dismantled the opposition...
