    Wisconsin at IU Game Thread 03/07 12 PM ESPN

    I was at the game and it was very noticeable during the second half that Devonte was hurting. He tried to tough it out but honestly it just seemed like he wasn’t able to go full speed and if it wasn’t senior day I don’t think he would’ve played in the second half
  2. Security at the game being very strict with the students. Very annoying
  3. The GA system is awful. Some schools have students wait in line for tickets earlier in the day of a game or a few days before that way they can do whatever they want and then go to the game at a reasonable time rather than having to wait in line for hours just to make sure they don’t end up in the balcony. This is especially tough for weeknight games because some people aren’t able to get to the line early enough to get a decent seat because of class and they would rather watch on tv than sit in the balcony.
  4. I am a student here and I highly disagree with this statement. I had to get there hours before tip off jus to make sure I was not in the balcony and when we looked up in the balcony close to tip off the student balcony section was completely full. There was not a single seat open in the student section that night and anyone that says that was not there and is making an uneducated guess. As students we work too hard to get good seats at these games to be talked about as a problem and it’s ridiculous considering what we’ve been through these last 4 years that people criticize us when we still continue to come to the games even though we haven’t had a bit of success since the 2015-16 season

    OSU-Michigan game is the most prime example of tackle basketball you’ll find. Bilas just said the only way you’ll get a flag in this game is to grab someone’s facemask
  6. I am praying for a tournament appearance this year. We haven't made it since I've been here and this might be the biggest week of home games we've had since I've been here
  7. As a senior student at IU that has not missed a game since ive been here even if I had to buy a ticket that wasn't in my package, the student section will be ready to go tonight. Dollar beers at brothers haha
  8. I used to live in Memphis and I have to say I loved it very much and I would not call it one of the "worst" cities in America
  9. Coming from a Grizz fan who was at the game last night, I don't blame people for not getting excited against us we suck haha. I had a great time tho Bankers Life is really nice
  10. First off, everyone needs to chill out. There is no reason to complain about stuff you cannot control. A big reason for lack of student attendance is that the General Admission system is absolutely terrible. A lot of schools you go wait in line and you get a ticket and then go home like the morning of the game. This year I waited from 9 am to 9 pm for the Duke game and 8:30 am to 3 yesterday. Students have lives and are not all as crazily obsessed with IU basketball as others. If they fixed the system I firmly believe attendance would jump. Not to mention they dont let you bring drinks in the line even if theyre sealed and you can only bring snacks if they are unopened.

    An IU fan sitting courtside almost got tossed last night too
  12. 1. All student tickets are not GA. There are many scattered throughout the Hall. 2. These posts are ignorant and take away from students like me that line up hours early to get in the front row of all these games and bring intensity and passion. 3. Monday is a big day for night classes at least from people I know. The Big Ten is partly to blame for changing the schedules. 4. For every fair weather fan you have the passionate fans that show up every game. If you take away seats from the students, you're taking away tickets from the kids that actually care about IU basketball and you will have games full of the fair weather fans you guys are talking about.

    IMO Miller inherited a team similar to Crean's year 3 team. This team also reminds me of the Vonleh team.
