    College Bball Thread

    I mean, college refs do the same thing when it comes to big programs. You don't think refs let Duke or Kentucky get away with things that they call against other schools? Different strokes for different folks, but complaining about NBA officiating is silly when it's better than NCAA officiating. The talent in the NBA is better now than ever.

    You mentioned the LeBron travel specifically. That wasn't a contrived situation. The refs weren't paying attention and they missed a call. It happens. And let's be real, contrived situations happen plenty of times in college basketball. Some programs get more favorable calls than others. It's not just an NBA thing.

    If your issue is with the referees, college refs have been really really bad the past few years.
  4. I just want to make the tournament. So however many we have to win to make it.

    For sure. I'm not liking how things have looked so far, but we're 10-1 so I can't complain toooo much. I'm glad the cupcakes are almost over because it's hard to judge us when we're playing the little sisters of the poor.

    I still want to hold out hope on Archie. I want him to get things figured out and be the guy for IU.

    Anyone else think Archie looks like he's lost some weight?

    Archie's team the first season competed way harder than this year's or last year's team. We've upgraded the talent but the sum hasn't improved much. It's frustrating.
  11. We won a game with zero players scoring in double digits. It's not very often that you see that.
  12. Pretty cool he gets to play in the Garden. I can imagine how excited he is.

    I see people saying this all the time but is there actually any proof that it happens? I see Gradman posting win or lose.

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

    This is a very important season for Archie. He has done everything right off the court so far. He has recruited the state well. He has built relationships with in-state high school coaches and former players. He has updated the facilities for the guys. He's got the team's housing upgraded to the really nice apartment complex by the stadium. But, at a certain point you have to have results on the court too. Making the tournament by your third season as coach is a very reasonable expectation at a school like IU, imo. If Archie fails to make the tournament again this year it will hurt recruiting momentum and he'll likely find himself on the hot seat heading into year 4. I hope that he can get things figured out this season because I really like him as our coach.

    How do you want people to react to being down by 30 to a really bad Wisconsin team? I don't get the reason for getting upset with people for not pumping sunshine.
