    IUBB vs Wisconsin Game Thread 12/7 @ 4:30 pm BTN

    The optimist in me feels good about this game, however recent playing history up there weighs too heavily on my mind. We are more talented than UW this year, plus have a lot more momentum right now, but I get the feeling this will be business as usual at the Kohl Center. We'll play down to their level, Davison/Trice will hit a bunch of 3s, the crowd will be very into it, and the referees can't help but play to the crowd. This is just the game Wisconsin needs to get back on track. I've seen this movie before.
  2. Need to pound it inside to TJD and let him get fouled.

    Have to wonder if Purdue pulls the redshirt on Brandon Newman to try to get some offense going. He's probably nothing special but he could inject some life into their shooting.

    The past 2 weeks has only confirmed what I thought during the opening week, that NONE of the teams in the Champions Classic are all that good. Kansas, Duke, Kentucky, and MSU don't look like top 10 teams at all.

    Give me a junior Al Durham over a freshman Anthony Edwards all day long.

    I just really hope we can take advantage of the opportunity to boost our resume in December. If we win 3 of Florida State, Notre Dame, Arkansas, UConn, and Wisconsin I'd be pretty happy. 5 is totally possible though.

    If you get a chance to watch a UMBC game this year, do it. They have a 5'2" PG on their roster named Darnell Rogers. He's a pretty good player, just looks like a child out there.

    Supposedly we're waaaaaaay behind Michigan and Louisville right now. Probably better hope Michigan loses some of its luster, and Louisville undergoes another scandal pretty soon.

    Absolutely imperative we go to the tournament this year. Since Michigan and Louisville definitely will, and could very well have deep tournament runs. We can't expect to fight off those schools for guys like Lander and Kaufman while we're in the NIT and they're going past the second week of the tournament.

    Now that it's official I feel confident in saying there's a certain poster on another board who everyone thinks is an insider but obviously is not, and whose word I'll never give any time to again. I'm sure there was a time he had a good source, but that person is probably no longer close to the program so now he's just getting bad info and passing it along as near gospel.

    I love the 2020 guys we have too, but none of them are as good as Garcia. How do you think the staff feels, do you think they're negative at all after visiting and targeting him so much only to get beat by a school like freakin' Marquette? Garcia is damn good. He averages 27 ppg, and no offense to our current recruits, but there's not a single one of them that I look at and say "thank God we got him, because I don't know what we'd do since we lost out on Garcia."
  12. Plus Romeo kicked his @$$ defensively. That still makes me smile.

    Bottom line is that we won't consistently pull top talent from out of state, or even instate, until we have tournament runs. Or we can go the Will Wade route and start throwing bags of cash around.

    Sounds like Rabjohns trying to generate as many clicks as he can possibly get out of this recruitment. Garcia telling people he still doesn't know means he wants as many people tuning in to his announcement as possible. Just being skeptical I guess.

    Thing that really bugs me is how badly Archie and staff really wanted this kid. Archie's racking his brain trying to figure out why it's so hard to get elite recruits to Indiana.
