    Thoughts on Crean after one and one-third years of Archie?

    18, actually. I'm a big ASU fan as well, and boy was it nice to be on the other side of a Crean classic. Really baffling stuff down the stretch. Down 1 with 8 seconds left, they called a bizarre timeout at 3/4 court. The inbound angle was awkward as a result and kid turned it over. ASU made 1 FT to go up 2, Crean calls timeout. Then the final possession ends up being a 6'11 dude trying to go the length of the court... Needless to say that didn't work out.
  2. Gonna go out on a limb and say the twitter account with a couple hundred followers literally called "CBB Insider Info" isn't exactly dialed in on the Romeo Langford recruitment.

    IPFW Post Game Thread

    Side note: Wisconsin lost to Summit league last place Western Illinois at home last year, and they turned out ok. Doesn't make this loss any less embarrassing, but it is not the end of the world. Now, back to the bourbon.
  4. We are favored by 13.5 at the moment. Still expect the boys to take care of business, but if it's close early, don't freak out.

    If Nova can go into Mackey and win without anyone over 6'9, and Kris Jenkins going 3-12...I like our chances.
  6. Things I like: 11 assists and only 1 turnover so far for Newkirk

    Good news here for Troy!
  9. I would expect nothing less from an Illinois fan that confuses when to use where/wear

    Collin Hartman Injury

    I guess I just assumed he was out for the year. That tweet makes it sound like he should be back at some point. EDIT: Osterman clarified, Hartman could use regular red shirt instead of medical IF needed. My bad, didn't think of that.

    This sounds promising.

    Bracketology/NCAA Postioning

    I could be wrong, but I don't believe the locations for the first two rounds are set in stone and tied to seeds.  For example, if Oregon jumps Xavier for a 2 seed, they wouldn't go to St. Louis instead of Spokane where Lunardi currently has them.  They would still play in Spokane because it's the closest site for them.   So we could possibly be a 3 seed and play in St. Louis, but we would have to pass either Xavier or MSU on the S Curve.  
  13. CHAMPS BABYYYYY!       Also...I seem to remember one other Hoosier team led by a #11, who crapped the bed in Maui, and rallied to win the Big Ten.   Spoiler Alert: http://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/schools/indiana/1981-schedule.html   :biggrin:   Keep it going boys!
