  1. IU will get screwed by the NCAA. They approve waivers to guys at OSU and Miami that should have had to sit out. Tuttle will prob have to sit. If this is how it’s going to be. Just approve everyone. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    IU vs IOWA 02/07/19 GAME THREAD!

    Lack of Defense intensity , lazy passes, and unforced turnovers keep rearing their ugly head. Iowa by 10 and Garza barely played. Too easy inside and outside for Iowa. IU just doesn’t have anyone to match up with Tyler Cook inside. Iowa’s 3 point shooters helped them extend the lead. IU has to tighten the D and hit some shots early to make a run Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Game Thread: Purdouche Edition

    Sadly injuries have ruined Deron. The guy showed potential when healthy. But he hasn’t been able to stay healthy. Bad Achilles and bad ankles hurt his mobility. He never was an exceptional leaper but his lateral quickness and ability to jump is gone at this point. Who knows if he can get back to where he was before the Achilles next year. He needs another big body to go with TJD next year. You don’t want him at center. He’s a prototypical power forward. Need to add another big man. I still think Archie should be playing Forrester. Jake is a tremendous leaper and plays with energy. This team needs someone to give it some fire. Lack of pure shooters is a major problem. They need another one next year to go w Franklin. Keion is a good shooter but I’m not sure what kind of percentage he is from 3. Jerome will hell next year. He’s a good shooter and can create offense. It’s a shame Race seems to potentially be done for the year. He’s a descent shooter and has a big enough body to help on the boards. Injuries have decimated this team. I can’t say it’s necessarily the S&C guy but I’ve never seen a run of injuries like this. Team is struggling to get healthy and find its identify. Gonna be a long year if they can’t figure it out.

    WBB vs O$U 1/10 @ 6 pm (on BTN!)

    Patberg had been very good. Her and Brenna Wise unfortunately both did not have anywhere close to their normal production. That was one they know they never should have lost. OSU is not very good but did enough. IU was really sloppy with their passes. OSU kept overplaying them and getting a lot of steals. The road is tough but that was a winnable game.

    #IUMS - 2018 College Cup

    Sadly IU had a terrible first half again. Got in a hole. Couldn’t get the equalizer. Gutman has not had his normal great performance. Sucks for such a tremendous season to end with a poor performance. Maryland’s first half set the tone and IU has been unable to make the big play that is had all year. Figure IU loses Muse, Rennicks, and Dorsey to the pros. Iu could have to replace 12 players Great season Hoosiers. Big 10 champs. Big 10 tourney champs. Thought they could win in but Pines is an unbelievable defensive player. He seemed to be there every time. They took Gutman out of the game. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    #IUMS - 2018 College Cup

    Going to be a challenge to score on this Maryland team in the 2nd half. Maryland was the better team throughout most of the first half. Disappointing half for IU. Hopefully IU can step it up early in the 2nd and get the equalizer. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    #IUMS - 2018 College Cup

    Indiana has played a poor half so far. Passing has not been good. Defense has let Maryland move easily down field without much challenge. IU played a similar first half against ND but it didn’t end up costing them. Today, it has. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  10. Losing a great group of seniors. Could also lose all 3 sophomores, Rennicks, Muse, and Dorsey to the pros. All 3 super talented. Hopefully, the Hoosiers can bring home #9. Yeagley will have a little rebuild next year. Looks like a solid group of recruits. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    WBB starting 5

    I think Aleska Gulbe will see significant time. She played very well against good international competition this summer. May not start but will be good off the bench. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    IU Baseball

    I would think Duncan, Mercer, Snider would probably be the most likely candidates. I liked Tracy but don’t think him coming back would be good for him or IU. I think he is going to do all he can to turn it around this year and stay out west for the long haul. Not interested in Henderson. He did a great job filling in for Miss St manager but history as UK coach was not outstanding. Lemonis was a good choice for IU because he recruited Indiana , Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, ohio for Louisville and was successful getting talent. He did the same while at IU. Getting someone who can recruit the Midwest at a high Level will continue to keep IU near the top of the Big 10. Whether they choose someone with head coaching experience or a high profile assistant coach, I think if they find someone who has experience recruiting those areas, it will lead to continued success.

    IU vs Rutgers game thread

    I don’t think Crean would have done better w this roster. I feel for RoJo. Didn’t want his career to end like that. Hartman’s injuries really hurt his ability to play. Never could get Morgan going today. Seemed like he’s worn out. Team rode him all year. Durham played well today. Otherwise, I don’t have much. Freddie plays hard and gives effort. Mcbob does the same. Just didn’t have the talent to compete when the shots aren’t falling. Rebuilds are tough. Having patience is tougher. Iu needs to add two more to next years team. One from New Albany. The other, a grad transfer big. How much did The Michigan transfer help that year. There’s no guarantee how long Deron is out. And no guarantee he doesn’t move on. Still think there could be a couple that choose to move on. Rough year. Some good. Some bad. Lots to fix in order get better. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    IU vs Rutgers game thread

    Every solid team out there has a PG that carries them , that gets the big basket or big assist. IU had that with Yogi. Haven’t had it since. I hope Phinisee is ready to go because he starts day 1. This team couldn’t shoot through most of the year. Went on a stretch where they seemed to pick it up a little, only to go back to the beginning with their bad shooting. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
