    My thinking is IU wins all the rest of their home games (that puts us at 11 wins) and wins two of their final 6 road games. That can most certainly happen.

    It is certainly possible. I think there are going to be a cluster of teams at 12-8/13-7.

    I'm going with 7-5 as well. I'd be happy with that or anything above it. That would put us at 22-9 (12-8). Puts us around 6th or 7th in the conference. Win a game in the B1G tournament and get an 8/9 seed. Just my expectations .

    THIS. I once liked Izzo. Now-he's just a whiny you know what. Minus last season his teams kept getting bounced early in the tournament. They are the New Orleans Saints of college basketball.

    First off-the environment was amazing last night at Assembly Hall!!! Need to be like that all the time-not just for ranked teams. IU doesn't win that game without Al Durham last night. For him to play as many minutes as he does he needs to contribute at or near the level he did last night. He gave IU great minutes. Thank goodness for Joey Brunk. Wow, what a steal. I bet Butler wishes they had him. He and TJD have changed the culture for this team. Hope Race is okay, he was a monster early in the game. This team needs to take it one game at a time. I don't want to speak too soon, but last night was the most fun I've had watching this team since the tournament win over UK 4 years ago. Really hope things are headed in a good direction. That was probably one of the best if not the best win of Archie's tenure. Season was sort of at a crossroad. If we had lost we'd be in the bubble talk. Now that we won that has to bump us up. Keep winning and it'll take care of itself.

    I like the Lickliter hire. He's not a "splash" like Walter but he's probably a better X's and O's kind of guy. Keep him a few years and let him build with the players that knew him.

    It was just announced. Like minutes ago. Good hire. Todd knows the players. Bennie is a great guy (we all know this from his time at IU) but he did not know this team. In fact, he took Todd's spot when he retired in August.

    Todd Lickliter has been named the coach at UE

    I live in Evansville. That is one of the many rumors. I've heard that and I've also heard nasty screen shots of messages have been going around of coach. Bottom line is he put himself in a situation and was warned. University had no choice. IU is always my #1 team but the Aces have been right behind for years. This is really dissapointing and a major blow to the city. I went to a majority of the home games this year. The crowds were the best they have been in over 20 years. The city backed this team. Walter was the right guy for the program. They got a little more hype than they should have because they beat Kentucky. They weren't an NCAA Tournament team just yet but they were close. Now, they will most likely start all over unless they hire someone the players would all love.
  10. Probably the most important week of Archie's IU career thus far. Two home games against two top 20 teams. If IU wants to show that they belong in the B1G race, they win these two. I expect 1-1 but I could see 2-0 just like I could see 0-2. This will tell us a lot about this team.

    Samari Curtis (2019) to Nebraska

    What's weird is nobody has heard a peep on the McCarty situation. I would have to think this guy wouldn't commit if he knew McCarty was going to be gone soon. That's why he left Xavier and Cincinnati-because the previous coach left.
  12. Haven't been on as much as I'd like to be. All I can say is if Rob Phinisee can play at or near the level he did on Saturday, this is a Top 20 team. Big week for IU. Two road games at good, but beatable Rutgers and Nebraska. Will be thrilled if they go to 2-0. The Big Ten is drunk this year. Starting 5-2 with home games against Michigan State and Maryland next would be huge. It is fair to keep in mind expectations. I thought this team would hover around .500 in the Big Ten this year. Figured that would be good for an NCAA Tournament appearance.

    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)
  14. 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.
