  1. You said this was a "no win situation". If we lose, it would be really bad for the momentum we built this year. If we win, we get a huge monkey off our back (those same college football fans know IUFB's history) and would be Outback Bowl champion (I don't really understand "we won't be seen as Outback Bowl champ". If you win the Outback Bowl, you are the champion). That is good for the program moving forward and clearly better than losing. Would it have been better to play a higher bowl game? Sure, but you have to play the cards you are dealt. That doesn't mean a no win situation. Win the game and carry this years momentum to next year.

    IUBB vs Butler - 12/19/20 Crossroads Classic @ 11:30 a.m. ET

    I was thinking that, too. I think the ball moves around much better when Rob is running the point and Trey is in. I like Al and he does some very good things for us, but sometimes the ball stops when its in his hand (especially against a 2/3 zone).
  3. Strong disagree here. IUFB hasn't won a bowl game in almost 30 years. If we handle Ole Miss, it is a HUGE win for the program and good foundation and motivation for this team going into next year (they disrespected us, we beat the snot out of an SEC team, lets go into this year with a huge chip on our shoulders). If we lose to a sub .500 Ole Miss team, we prove the committee right.

    IUBB vs Butler - 12/19/20 Crossroads Classic @ 11:30 a.m. ET

    Playing for the most wins all time in the Classic this weekend! I get a bit irked that Butler gets painted as the biscuits and gravy eating, playing on a hoop off the back of the barn, all Indiana team. It is private school in the middle of one of the largest cities in the US, whose in state population is about 50% (IU's is 68%, which seems high but that is what my source said). Plus, they are famous for losing two championships , while having the gall to criticize about how IU harps on championships that was won decades ago. YOU DIDN'T WIN ANY! They had an incredible run with an incredible coach a decade ago. They didn't invent the game of basketball.* GO IU! *mostly said tongue in cheek....mostly

    I understand everyone's frustration. That being said, and I understand that this is going to be a very unpopular opinion, we lost to OSU a month ago. I don't know how I would feel if we got in on a technicality over a team that beat us. We talk about asterisks on the achievements of other teams all the time. I say, let's finish out the year strong, get a bowl game win, let the team be pissed about this all offseason, and BEAT OSU next year to remove all doubt.
  7. B1G East title game at Lucas Oil. OSU v. IU. Winner takes all (even though we already lost).

    If you want historical podcasts, I can't recommend Dan Carlin's Hardcore History enough. There are tons of backlogged episodes and they are LONG, like 3 hours, and go into great detail, with readings and analysts from both first-person and secondary sources. He also narrates it in such a way that makes an already captivating subject even more so. His two series on WW1 and Genghis Kahn are phenomenal.

    ACC-Big 10 Challenge

    I was looking forward to watching the USA soccer team play at 7:30 and riding that to the IUBB game!

    If UNC loses by 22 or more, can we play them for second place?

    Sadly, no. I think Brunk will have to take the majority of the breather minutes for Race and/or TJD.

    While I agree that could be an issue, I don't think this team is built to be a three-point shooting team. We are built to drive the ball and play through contact. Plus, we were missing arguably our best 3 point shooter with Al.

    Nice win. Love our defense. Lots of room to grow, but happy with the result. I think if we can become more consistent offensively, we will have a really nice season.

    I agree. If he can get his shot down, he will be a great playmaker for us moving forward
