    #IUWBB - 2019 NCAA Tournament

    I had grandpa duties and only saw the last 4 minutes but looking at the box score, we only shot 2 free throws the entire freaking game? Someone please, a Cliff's Notes on the officiating.

    Bella Norton with a 2-out single in the top of the 7th but we couldn't do anything more and take a 7-6 loss to open our B1G season. Goodin takes the loss in relief of Trainer.

    O$U scores 3 in the bottom of the 6th to take a 7-6 lead. A 2-run homer and run scoring single off Goodin did the damage.

    End of 5 and we lead 6-4. Goodin settled down after a shaky start and hasn't given up another hit and has struck out 5. We got 2 more in the top of the 5th as Lacefield and Baez both drove in runs.

    We tied it up in the top of the 3rd as Baez drives in another run with a double. Goodin now on the mound and she too is struggling already giving up a hit and a walk and no outs for O$U. Escaped the inning with no damage. Tied at 4 after 3 innings.

    B1G season underway as I type with IU on the road for a 3-game road trip to Columbus, OH and the Dougheyes. We've played 2 innings and fortunately only trail 4-3 as Ohio State left the bases loaded in the bottom of the 2nd as Trainer recorded her first K to end the inning. Trainer has given up 2 hits, 4 BB and allowed 3 earned runs. We've committed 2 errors allowing the 4th O$U run to score. Baez has a solo home run and Westmoreland drove in 2 runs with a double. Baez now homered in 3 straight games and in 4 of her last 5. Preview Live Stats

    Couple of things that I particularly noted in the podcast were Snow's comments that at the time of Crean's termination he thought Miller, Mack & Holtmann were the 3 best options. He also commented that Crean was too intense in his recruiting and the longer he spent recruiting a kid, the less likely he was to land him as with the kid, parents, etc., Crean simply wore out his welcome. Snow also said that negative player comments on boards - he didn't specifically say btb - did have an impact on the Brooks recruitment. Went out of his way to state the jury's still out on Jerome's basketball future but he thought it was a real positive he'd been cleared for contact. Snow also said he thinks Lander and Love are high future IU targets. He specifically said he didn't see Morton as a difference maker but didn't go into why. And when he made his comment about IU Compliance that Doc noted on the previous page he added that IU was much too slow to evolve away from Knight. The podcast runs 2 hours and covers a lot of different topics but from around the 34 to 50 minute mark the conversation was solely about Crean and it ends up with Priller's recruitment and how Snow thought it was a joke when he first heard about it! That first 34 minutes is pretty much just social chit chat so you can shorten up your listening commitment by jumping to that 34 min. mark. It really is worth your time.
