Huge and signature win of the Aird era so far against a rival. Still not sure yet how good of a coach he is or if program will succeed under him but this is a great step forward.

Team is off to a great start.  Let's hope the wheels don't fall off.

IU received 13 votes in the latest AVCA Coaches poll.  Indiana hasn’t been ranked since 2010.  In two weekends when Big Ten play starts, Hoosiers will play two (No. 7 Minnesota, No. 9 Wisconsin) top 10 teams to open conference play.

This is basically the same scenario as football in that B1G is one of the top conferences, top to bottom. It’s tough to steal a win vs the Minnesota, Wisconsin, PSU
