Indiana is ranked in both AP and Coaches' polls.

Nearly four years after IU last was ranked, the Hoosiers are back in the top 25 in both the Associated Press (media) and USA Today (coaches') polls. IU is ranked #18 by AP and #20 by USA Today. I don't put a ton of stock in the human polls, personally; I pay much more attention to the reputable computer ratings (where IU is now #13 in Pomeroy and #6 in Sagarin), but it's still an important milestone, and is more than anyone could have hoped only a month into the season. There's something comforting about seeing that little number next to the on-screen scoreboard, and IU has a chance to be seeing that for a while. Congrats, guys, and keep it up.
