    Why the heck do we have Al handling the ball out front with Rob getting a 5 minute break?

    That has been my thought about the offense the more I watch. It seems as if the ball screens are being set to give us a clean look at a post feed rather than an open driving lane, or maybe its being left to the discretion of the guard to decide once he has a lane. But, poor screening, driving, big men sealing their man, and decision making could all play a factor into the discombobulated offense that we see on most offensive possessions.

    Archie just asked if they are cutting back on the hard hedging. He didn’t take to kindly to that question. Asked reporter what he knows about hedging and If he’s ever done it.

    Lol, feel the heat Archie.

    Shot up 8 spots in Kenpom to #39. Time to chase down the analytic juggernaut known as Purdue. Only 14 spots to go!

    Just checking in with you guys and have seen all I need to know in the past couple of pages. I’m probably just a bad fan (props to you guys), but I watched the last minute of the Iowa game and none today, even though I could have watched both. I’ve hardly ever missed a game the majority of my life. This program has finally taken it out of me. This is who we are.

    A few thoughts on the current state of IU basketball...
    After the Wisconsin game in December, I made a post defending the team against all of the outrage that was directed by some fans against the team. At the time, it was the first loss of the season and I felt it was appropriate to give THIS YEAR'S team a chance to right the ship. There have been a number of disappointing losses since then. But I still held on to hope. I'm a fan. I follow IU basketball for a leisurely activity. I want to think the best. I try to be fair. I don't want to be miserable. However, the effort displayed by the team against Purdue was among the most disappointed I have ever been as a fan of IU basketball. The Purdue game was huge for about a hundred different reasons... and then the team played like they did.
    It has become clear that this isn't working. We were told at the beginning of the era that we would push the pace on offense. We don't. We were told there would be variations of the motion to the offense. The offense stands still for multiple possessions in a row. My understanding is that our defense is predicated on packing the lane and forcing play away from the basket. Instead, we see guys driving into the lane without much resistance. (Anyone see Nojel Eastern's drive to the basket on the first play of the 2nd half? Unbelievable.) If by chance we do stop them in the lane, our rotations have shown to be poor in that we often leave guys WIDE open for outside shots. We were also told that every possession is important and there would be an emphasis on ball-security. Yet, we're among the worst in the league in turnover percentage. Add in the fact we are a poor shooting team. Again. To put it simply, we're not executing.
    I've come to a point where I'm searching to find hope that this will get turned around. And I'm struggling to find answers. Can I put my hope in the players? I can with TJD... but who else? Right now, we have one "good" player and a bunch of random pieces. Some of which don't fit. Can I put my hope with the coaches? Not from their experience at IU. You have to look at Dayton success and it's fair to question if that translates to IU. You HAVE to make the tournament at IU. You HAVE to. That's the minimum. It shouldn't be THAT hard. Just be one of the Top 68 teams in the nation. That's all. Unless we get this thing turned around in a hurry, this coaching staff will have gone 0 for 3 in that regard. And that just can't happen.
    I really think the Purdue game turned a lot of fans against Archie. That's not good. It would be nearly impossible to get them back. Once Crean lost them, he lost them. Didn't matter that he won another Big Ten championship. Support was gone. If the same has happened to Archie, it's over (barring a Final Four appearance... and even THEN, I'm still not sure.) So does IU let him go this year? Unlikely considering the buyout, new AD, etc. So we let this toxic environment play out for another year (at least.) How fun. Plenty of excitement, there.
    I really want to believe we have bright days in our immediate future... but my fear is that we're about to re-live the end of the Crean tenure all over again. And that's not even getting into the mess that could be finding the right candidate to be the next head coach...

    At the risk of sounding dramatic, someone earlier (maybe Wayne) used the term “hopeless”. And that’s basically the point I’m at. Okay, so say they get rid of Archie/he resigns, both of which I doubt...why even waste time hoping for a home run hire we all want, with this administration? Feels hopeless as far as the hopes of ever getting a consistent, highly competitive team again.

    Honestly, just really sad today. Glad for some closure with Coach Knight. But I told my wife earlier that as a kid that grew up just outside of Bloomington, I’m sad at what has happened to this program. For the first time in my 28 years, they have turned me into an apathetic fan. Just has to be the most poorly managed program that should have all the resources to be listed with the top programs. But we aren’t anymore. The product we have on the floor right now is a disgrace. As much as I hate them, hats off to Purdont. They expose our inadequacy.

    What a day...came home to this mess and then got a call that my only remaining grandparent is in the hospital after suffering a stroke. 
     
    IU basketball used to be my escape from life's problems. Even the early Crean years, I still found enjoyment in following the team. Now...it's about gone. It no longer brings me joy, yet I can't look away, and I hate it. Hate this program and what it's turned into. Hate that Purdue has beaten us so many times and their fans crack all these jokes about owning us. Hate that we struggle to score 50 points in games. Hate that no one can shoot. Hate that we don't come back when we're behind. Just hate everything about this program and everything that's happened in the last 3 years.
