    Think it was 2010-2011. They just came off back to back final four appearances. They were a top 3 team to start the season. I'm not sure they even got outside the first round. Michigan State is a weird team. They have had some teams that should have made the final four only to get beat early in the tournament (see 2012, 2016, 2018)
  2. Hate that I haven't been able to be on here that much this season. Was really proud of the way the team played last night. Few things: 1) My preseason pick of Devonte making All-Big Ten could come true. He is really focused for his senior year. 2) TJD is a star. I think he will only be at IU for two years. Big time get for Archie. 3) What an improved Justin Smith. He really worked hard this offseason. 4) Armaan Franklin really gave IU some good minutes last night. 5) Even though Al didn't score a lot I thought he played well in other areas. Florida State is a really good team. There aren't many teams who have made at least the Sweet 16 the last two years. They are one of them. To do what IU did to them without Rob in awesome. I hope that this isn't like the Marquette/Louisville wins last year. I have a different feeling about this team. I really do think this is what we have been hearing Archie preach about.

    There could be a really good game Sunday Night in the Bahamas tournament. Evansville and Liberty. Big mid-major matchup. Would be the championship of that tournament.

    IUBB vs Troy game thread 11/16 8 pm BTN

    Really like this team so far. Granted yes we haven't played good teams. A few things of note: 1) So far what a jump by Justin Smith and Al Durham! That is what you expect from your upperclassmen. 2) TJD is going to be a star. He already is! He is going to get better as the season goes on. 3) Race Thompson is a grown man. If this team stays healthy I think IU is a top 4 team in the Big Ten this year and probably a top 25 team. Time will only tell. They have things to get better at but no complaints tonight.

    It isn't just me that thinks he's different this year is it? I don't mean this in a bad way at all. He's been more emotional on the bench too. The load managment comment was gold. I just feel like he's more comfortable.

    I met Todd Leary at Archie's event in Evansville. Super nice guy.

    Seems like a really cool event. Would be awesome if he goes to the game tonight.

    Rooting for the kid. I think he is very talented but he has had lofty expectations. Still think he can be a decent player in the NBA.

    IU vs Gannon Game Thread

    If Damezi can give this team around 15 solid minutes, that's a huge win. I'm not worried about the starting lineup. I was worried about the bench this year. Armaan and Damezi are helping those worries go away. This won't be an exciting team. But they will be a good defensive team. They will kill you down low I think.

    IU vs Gannon Game Thread

    I'm thinking this: Starting 5: Rob, Devonte, Al, Justin, TJD (We agree) I think Devonte and Rob make all Big Ten Team this year. TJD is up there for FOY. Off the bench: Armaan, Joey, Damezi I REALLY like the way Armaan and Damezi played. I expect them in a reserve role. Race, De'Ron, and Jerome will play, they just may be up and down roles (may play a lot one game and may not another. Depends on the matchup). My prediction for this year? I say 23-12 (11-9), 6th place in the Big Ten, they make the dance and win a game in the first round. Momentum into next year.

    If this version of Justin Smith shows up we will be pretty good. (It is against Gannon though)

    I read somewhere he doesn't like his role right now with the program.

    I hope in two years we have a backcourt of Phinisee, Franklin, and Lander.

    Went to USI-Evansville exhibition tonight.Great game! USI was a final four team last year in D2 and the Aces have had a lot of hype (doesn't mean squat). Evansville won 71-68 in OT. Was really disappointed in the Aces. Evansville has two top 100 recruits and two starters from other mid major teams that transferred in. That plus their leading scorer and a few key reserves from last year returned. USI was without their two best returning players from last year and lost 4 key guys due to graduation. Aces look to be the mid-major version of the Browns. They have a long way to go. They play Kentucky in two weeks.
