    2022-23 IUBB Schedule

    Well what you quoted was not my comment, so I'm not sure how it's attributed to me. But I most definitely have very tempered expectations of this coming season. I agree that "shock the college bball world to it's core" is strong to quite strong. But given the state of both program...KU being defending champs, virtually never losing at home, and IU being the one program that people love to debate whether we belong as a blueblood or not....it win would be one hell of a statement across the college hoops world. KU will most definitely be much better than the 8-18 team you witnessed IU beat.

    I will be in Lawrence. I plan on witnessing a shock to the college basketball world's core.

    Who knows how it will shake out but worth noting that most people have Creighton ranked higher than Nova in early predictions. They very well could be the stronger opponent this coming season.

    I think this is a pretty good formula. Doing a quick comparison to last season, of the top 25 NET teams (eliminating Gonzaga b/c they rack up quad 4 games in conference), only 2 teams played less than 4 quad 4 opponents. Only 6 teams in the top 50 played less than 4 quad 4 opponents. Right now we have, likely, exactly 4. We had 7 last season. Even if we add 1 or 2 more cupcakes, the top end of our schedule will likely have 3, maybe 4 quad 1 opponents, of which we had 1 in the non-conference last season. Overall, this is a solid improvement.

    TJD is BACK

    I noticed back when he put his name in the draft that in his twitter profile pic he’s wearing the jersey #4. And it’s not a pic where the number is only kind of visible. It’s front and center. Maybe he just never got around to changing the pic after his frosh season. I’m not on twitter that much so I have no clue how long that's been his profile pic. But he’s worn #23 for 2 seasons now, right? I’ve been wondering this whole off-season if the #4 signified a 4th year coming. Maybe not, but it makes you think…

    College Bball Thread

    Yeah, that was a very heartwarming story to follow, and heartbreaking at the same time. I didn't have kids at the time. I have a 6 year old daughter now. I just spent about 20 minutes going back down that rabbit hole and I'm am absolute mess over here. Just an absolute mess.

    I’m good with this approach as well but I also hope we start getting on these holiday tournament schedules almost every season. Not just the Maui every 4 or 5 seasons. Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Legends, whatever…those are fantastic tournaments that nearly guarantee a couple resume boosting games.

    Of course. It’s highly unlikely 4 high major teams would be scheduled. But all of the programs you mentioned would be great to rotate in.

    I agree....in the format it has been. I'd love to see the Crossroads Classic kept around in a modified format. None of the Indiana teams play each other. Make it a 4 game Saturday or a 2 and 2 Sat/Sun split. Rotate the teams that are invited each season from all over the country. Make it an event to feature hoops in the state of Indiana. Hypothetically, imagine a lineup like this: Butler vs. Cincinnati Notre Dame vs. Texas Purdue vs. Villanova Indiana vs. North Carolina the next season: Butler vs. Louisville Notre Dame vs. Florida Purdue vs. Arizona Indiana vs. Gonzaga Of course you have to make sure it's a non-conference opponent for all teams, and nothing conflicts with the B1G/ACC challenge or gavitt games. It may not get 4 incredible matchups every season, but it would be an incredible weekend in my opinion.

    Mike Woodson and His Coaching Staff

    No idea how well of a job this person would do, but I admit having a name like Corolla Mellotron in that role sounds pretty cool.

    In this scenario, wouldn't it be an alley poo? ...I'll see myself out.
