  1. To go ahead and beat the dead horse, Romeo just made it 3/18 from 3. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  2. I swear, on the rare occasion we hit a 3, it’s never the wide open one. I just don’t get it. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  3. Not sure if anyone has said this this year, but how can any team shoot this bad? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  4. Just turned it on. Doth mine eyes deceive me? Surely they have the score backwards? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  5. A guy can dream, right? Been saying this same thing about the last 5 games now. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  6. Agree completely. Archie isn’t perfect, but if a game like this (with 100% more effort than Minny) doesn’t show you that the roster is made up of terrible shooters, I don’t know what will prove it to you. Anyone else noticed through the first 30 minutes of the game, we averaged 10 points in 10 minutes. Can’t even describe. For those of you bad at math, that’s 1 point per minute. Not a point per possession. One per minute. Let that sink in. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  7. Painter is good out of timeouts. Nails are bit all the way off! Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  8. If we weren’t completely inept at putting the ball in the basket, we’d be up 15 with this energy level right now. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Purdue down 14 at the end of the game. Sorry, just thought I’d take a rare opportunity to focus on the positive. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    IU vs IOWA 02/07/19 GAME THREAD!

    Completely agree. Got to be there tonight and the energy was just sucked out of the place in those two plays. I don’t know that the pouting will ever be taken out of Justin or Devonte after a bad play. As for the 3, if a guy is gonna hit that, just shake his hand...all you can do.

    College Bball Thread

    Nice find. If I was a coach, I probably would hate the halftime interviews. At the same time, be a professional and what you want your players to be. It didn’t even show his first answer to her, which was just as bad. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    IUBB @ MSU- Game Thread

    I agree it was a foul. I get hustling and all that and love diving on the floor. What I took issue with was the part after the whistle that goes unnoticed. The unnecessary rip out was what hurt Juwan’s shoulder. If I had been Justin Smith, I would have at least pushed the guy to the floor. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Louisville looked tough. Did you see Mack’s halftime interview? Don’t know if he’s usually like that, but dude was a total jerk. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  15. Also very positive...no sling. AND no ice pack even. I’m way more optimistic than when it happened. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Inclined to Give Archie a Break

    I meant to add that culture is a good start and has to be the foundation. I choose to believe that Archie can build wins (and meaningful ones) on his culture. Granted, we are way below the level we need to be at now. A saying about how Rome was built comes to mind... Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Inclined to Give Archie a Break

    I agree here and is part of the reason I chose not to watch. I get too worked up about it. I’m choosing to still believe it’s the process of building a “culture,” as the article discussed above. Watching the score from the Purdue game, it lead me down a rabbit hole...Painter (and maybe I’m just bitter here) is a good basketball coach. However, I’ve thought for some time that he might actually be worse case scenario. Think for a minute: As one unpopular AD once stated, I don’t think we should have to shy away from expectations at IU. Painter has a winning percentage of like 67. Yet, what has he won in 13 years? 2 BIG titles and has gone to 4 sweet 16s. I’m not ready to accept mediocrity. I respect the culture that he has built and am willing to give CAM more time to build it. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    2018-19 NBA Thread

    Definitely seems like a ruptured patellar tendon. Hate it for Vic. Have seen so many people say even if you aren’t an IU or Pacers fan, he’s one of the easiest guys to pull for in the NBA. I’m sure he’ll be back and even better. Side note and not near as important: as an IUBB, Pacers, and Colts fan, I feel like my heart is regularly just torn out and stomped on lately. Anyone else?

  19. I’m with you. Every team has rough spots, but this team is showing no heart, no pride. I can’t stomach that. I’m done investing my time until something changes. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  20. Why is Collins smart enough to get the hot shooter open, but we can’t get a top 5 player in the class open? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Exactly what I meant earlier. What’s that they say about doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Game Thread: Purdouche Edition

    I will just add...this game is exactly why you can’t lose to Nebraska at home. Just too tough to beat even decent teams on the road in this conference. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Game Thread: Purdouche Edition

    We are not good enough to go 1/7 from FT line and still win against any Big Ten team on the road. Verge of being blown out now because they’re finding range from 3 Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Game Thread: Purdouche Edition

    Okay, I’ve been hesitant to jump on the “where’s the coaching?” bandwagon, but it’s the same areas that are killing us every game. Lack of awareness, inability to hit free throws, our two best players picking up quick fouls...this stuff just kills us. At least the effort is improved compared to Nebraska. But I’ll be honest, there have been several games where all I could say is that the effort was good. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
