    The NIT had a rule stating teams must have at least a .500 record per the Wikipedia page. It started off as a preference and later was a solidified requirement. Then in 2017 they did away with it, I think? The article isn’t clear which tournament no longer has the .500 requirement. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Invitation_Tournament

    Agreed; Lunardi is a talentless hack. That being said he did just post an insanely intriguing matchup with IU as a 10 seed vs Butler at the 7. Winner plays Dayton in Indy (assuming they don’t lose). No way Butler should be three seeds higher than IU at this point but either way, I would take those matchups any day.

    IU Football Off-Season

    It’ll depend on evidence. If she has bruising on her neck he’s toast and I can’t / wouldn’t argue against it. Best case scenario for Peyton is cooler heads prevail, the “neck slam” was by in large exaggerated due to her being scared and upset and they throw out the other stuff, chalk it up to a miss understanding followed by a heated argument. He gets destruction of property for the phone and everyone moves on. Either way, I’m incredibly disappointed in him as this kind of stuff cannot happen. This is why IU can’t have nice things

    IUBB vs Penn State - 2/23/20 @ Noon

    Respectfully disagree. We have far too many games where we are slow out the gate in both halves and Joey’s poor play, while isn’t the only factor, does contribute to it. That said, I think Brunk is the better matchup against Purdue’s Williams so I expect to see the same starting lineup against the boilers.

    Green and Smith played well in spurts today. I want to give Al that same nod but he’s firmly in my dog house after the careless second half he had. Race continues to be the X factor. He’s starting to remind me of a slightly more athletic Xaiver Tillman. Would like to see him get more touches and see if that opens things up more for TJD on the opposite block. Way to gut it out boys. I’m off to find some baby aspirin

    How does Al not come out after these sequences? He’s literally throwing the ball away every other time down the floor

    So play defense with your goddamn hands up. It’s not difficult, they’re calling the hand checks and reach in swipes. So stop doing it. What’s the definition of insanity???

    How does Race not get a touch two possessions in a row after Stevens gets his 4th?

    Glad to see “stop playing defense with your hands” was an emphasis during halftime

    Agreed but winning teams react and adjust. Our batch of low IQ missfits just keeps walking into the booby trap. We had an opportunity to put them out of the game in the last two minutes and failed miserably.

    Poetic justice is what it is. Purdue fans are the most inexplicably arrogant fan base in the country, both in basketball and football

    Him and Jerry Palm must have a secret relationship. The only acceptable way Purdue gets in is to win out and get to the conference championship game. Anything else would be an absolute fraud. I get that IU had a somewhat weak non conference schedule but I’m getting tired of Purdue getting credit for losing to Marquette, Texas, Butler, and FSU. Either way, our guys need to realize Purdue is not a better team and go into Mackey to prove it.

    Lunardi said today that even with a loss against Michigan they are still on the bubble and have a shot at an at large bid. This is utterly insane to me. Their only non conference win against a tournament caliber team is Virginia (who’s still on Lunardi’s bubble). When is the last time a 14-14 (7-10) team with three games, plus B1G tourney was still in contention? To put this in perspective, Purdue is now on both the NCAA and NIT bubble as teams with a losing record are not eligible for the NIT.

  16. Lol. Obviously my comment was hyperbole but this is a pretty rare find no less.
  17. He wasn’t smiling at all and he made a “get outta my face” gesture with his hand when he said it. Anyone claiming they’ve seen Justin Smith smiling is a liar
  18. I noticed this as well and am happy to see he’s not a total scumbag but doesn’t change my opinion of him and his continuous bad attitude. He’s way to bad of a player to be this uncoachable and arrogant.
  19. I don’t even want to think about it. Feels like we never win here. Huge props to TJD and Race for doing the things it takes to win a game on the road.
  20. My guess is TJD is completely gassed. Otherwise he’d have tracked it down.
  21. No it wasn’t. Dumb play by Rob, he leaned into the screen with a chicken wing hanging out. Everyone on the court saw it instantly
  22. TJD implored Smith to dunk the ball in that situation to earn an and one to which Smith promptly replies “STFU”...cool man. Can’t wait for this kid to be gone

    IU @ Michigan 2/16 1 pm CBS

    He’s been the best player on both ends of the floor. It’s a shame he’s spent so much time on the bench
