    What will it take to win #6

    IU will have to be a threat from 3 pt range. They will have to have a center that can dominate.

    It seems like there is a tremendous amount of dissatisfaction all across the country with the NCAA on enforcement issues. Yet Mark Emmert is still there. Why don't conferences do something about it?

    It is too bad the BOT is so political. I question the competence of most of them.

    I think IU suffers from a structural problem with governance. The BOT is mostly appointed by the governor. That means you get a lot of political suck-ups running a multi-billion dollar enterprise. And I think the results show it.

    I don't know where I read it, but about 3 weeks ago I saw an article about Glass and the trustees. One of them asked him about the football program and said they had 1 winning season in the last 25 years. Glass, of course, tried to shift the conversation to the winning minor sports teams.

    2019 NIT Tournament

    I can't really feel any excitement at all for the NIT.

    Public perception is very important and IU has a very poor reputation around the country. IU football compared to all schools in the power five is probably close to last place all time. And the athletic department deflects every time football and basketball failures are mentioned and begins to talk up water polo and rowing. That is the spin. It takes the spotlight off the revenue sports that IU does so poorly in.

    IU Hockey 101

    It is now known simply as Ft Wayne or Purdue Ft Wayne.

    This is incredibly embarrassing for the Big Ten.

    IU vs Uof6 Game Thread

    The refs called a lot of invisible fouls today. That happens and you just have to live with it. Archie couldn't hide his frustration with his team's free throw shooting. I'll bet they hear about it the whole Christmas break.
  13. If IU wants to move up in academic standings, the way to do it is simple. Be much more selective in admissions. Basically, anyone can get into IU. Compare that to UNC, UVA, UC Berkley, and any other Big10 schools. At IU it has always been the goal of the trustees and administration to make Bloomington have one of the largest enrollments in the country for a single campus. This equals larger budgets and more dollars to control for the people in charge. Academics are secondary and athletics a distant third.

    IU vs Maryland 11/10/18 Noon BTN

    Well I guess Allen gets one more year and then Glass gets to hire another IU assistant or a MAC coach.

    FBI Corruption Investigation

    I think when an organization has gone off the rails you start by axing the top guy.
