It’s pretty nice to be Indiana coach Tom Allen right now.

He’s got the Hoosiers off to their best start in Big Ten play since 1991 while the team is the highest it’s been ranked in more than 30 years.

All of this being said, if Indiana falls to Michigan on Saturday, that positive momentum likely comes to a screeching halt. The Hoosiers and Allen have a chance to really make a statement Saturday.

As Indiana prepares for this big-time matchup, Allen spoke with the media at his regularly scheduled Monday press conference.
