    Hoosiers96 got a reaction from Hovadipo in Bracketology   
    We've lost to 3 teams so far (2 top 10 teams, and a team with 4 returning starters) and none of those were played at home. I apologize for forgetting that we only play Minnesota once but someone said they think they are better than us. All I'm saying is that we've lost to 3 really good basketball teams and it's just unreasonable to think we can't win 3-4 big games at home. I'm not being negative by any means but there is no reason to write off on this team with 8 underclassmen in the rotation. I'm pretty sure Michigan, Kentucky, and Kansas fans aren't writing off on their teams who have underperformed. Just give it a thought

    Hoosiers96 got a reaction from kaylarened in Yogi Ferrell   
    He doesn't have to assist on 8-10 shots to be considered unselfish.. When the rest of the team has 12 assists that allows Yogi to shoot. Crean wants Yogi to be the scorer and he has no problem with him shooting. I noticed yesterday that when Stan, Yogi, and Evan were in they had Stan bring the ball up so that frees up Yogi and Evan to get open for shots. I have no problem with the role he has taken on this year and I don't expect it to change. Yogi shouldn't be considered 'selfish' by any means

    Hoosiers96 reacted to Parakeet Jones in Yogi Ferrell   
    I think Yogi may be feeling a little pressure to be "the man" this year with so  many new guys on the team.  He took a couple of shots late that made me groan, but I didn't get a selfish vibe from them, I got a, "We've got to have a basket here and it's up to me to do it," vibe from him.  
     
    With the inconsistency of our offense this year, I can't say that I blame him.  Right now when we are in situations where we HAVE to have a basket, Yogi is the guy I feel most confident taking the shot.  Does he force things too much at times?  Yes.  Is he selfish?  No.

    Hoosiers96 reacted to kaylarened in Yogi Ferrell   
    We have to remember that Yogi was kinda pushed into a leadership role that he may not have been completely ready for. Yogi was the only one for the most part other than Will hitting shots. Once we improve our shooting and offensive skills he will have more assists on the board. I don't believe that Yogi is selfish. I feel he is doing what he thinks and what others think needs to be done. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    I agree with this.  I don't think he is playing with a selfish intent, I think he is trying to make plays to win games.

    I'm a diehard Indiana guy, but Michigan St. is one of my personal most respected programs because I think Izzo does it the right way. Just about the only time I'd root against them is if it changes the Hoosiers' outlook. But there will never be a time I'm rooting for Kentucky to win haha.

    Yes, you heard me. Not "Welcome to the NBA, Victor Oladipo", it's Welcome to Victor Oladipo, NBA.
     
    Tonight, our proud Hoosier is absolutely annihilating the Nets. Steals, spins in the lane, no-look assists, 360 slams off of steals...you name it. Absolutely took the game over in the third quarter and single-handedly beat a playoff quality NBA team.
     
    Final line in 21 minutes: 19 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals (a bunch of turnovers), and a complete 3rd quarter energy transfusion that took a close game and turned it into a blowout.
     
    It's gonna be good to live in Florida where all Magic games are televised.
     
    Fantastic.
