    Gutsy win. Amazing. My recording didn’t get the OT. That part stinks. Grace Berger and Aleksa Gulbe are really impressive. We need Holmes back badly, but we need her healthy in March, more importantly. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    Serious Question

    You touch on all points. Year 3 makes most sense pre free market. Free market changes EVERYTHING. You can get experienced guys at any position. Basketball takes a few stars and great role players. Much can be accomplished or dissembled in 1 off season. I think our staff kinda missed on our transfers. Maybe not missed, but didn’t knock it out of the park. What could have been? Maybe next season as we try to replace TJD? Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    Serious Question

    “Tons of obvious reasons to see we are getting better”?? Are we watching the same team? We’ve had good moments and good performances. But many of the same problems continue to creep up. We haven’t won a game on the road. This includes a historically bad half allowing Wisconsin their best comeback win of all time. Losing to a not too good Penn State team in an empty gym. A bad Syracuse team that will miss the tourney. A decent Iowa team that was suppose to be junk. Ohio State was a very nice win. But it’s a home win. They will return serve if we play there.

    Serious Question

    This is all fair. When do we start to realistically expect that? Not next year certainly, as we won’t be preseason top 25. Our recruiting is ok, I suppose. I like to project. Is it year 3 magically? Our 2023 recruiting is ok. I like Newton a lot. Cupps could be good one day? Year 4? I don’t know, Woodson has the pieces this year to where we could be undefeated right now. TJD is a legitimate stud. We’ll be lucky if we have a big as good as him in 10-15 years. He brought in Bates- love him. He’ll be better next year. Not getting enough time to be comfortable, forcing things, not playing great. Kopp- mostly been a disappointment on the court. X- want to like the kid. I do. Just not a great BB player. Durr- Worst kid getting minutes right now. This is on Woodson and staff. If we had a couple of transfer pieces turn out differently we are easily top 25 maybe top 10. Who gets the blame for the transfer kids? If we all agree we are mediocre, yet we brought in 2 starters and 1 rotation player then what? Does this build confidence in staff with transfer decisions?

    Serious Question

    The honest expectations of many are to just make the tournament. Even the majority of BTBanners. We are a middle of the pack big ten team. We are a fringe tournament team that is poised to lose (by far) its best player. This is a year we need to expect more. Do we project to be better next year losing TJD and others? Not likely. Then what? Expectations to be middle of the pack again? It never changes. We don’t recruit like a top program, we don’t act like one, so the big question is why do I think we will ever be one? (Lol, that’s on me). It’s an enjoyable ride for me and maybe others even if frustrated twice a week by them. I’m still rooting them on. I’m hoping my caring and by proxy all the fans caring can eventually bring the program back and not lose it off the deep end. We keep saying time is dwindling with each hire. Expectations definitely are slipping. It’s a slippery slope until it never comes back. Maybe we are there already. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    Serious Question

    Ohh ohh ohh…. I want to rail on Twitter so badly. And yeah, Indiana fans that want or expect a powerhouse program are the worst……. In all honesty, most of us can watch and evaluate basketball and talent. The W/L is a measuring stick. But we can tell. Just Watch the product. Indiana is a bit bipolar this season, more than Archie’s slow motion trainwreck. We’ve played some good ball and a lot of terrible ball. If you are a fan content to be a NCAA fringe/hopeful you are getting what you expect. You can enjoy the ride and sit on the edge of your seat come selection Sunday. If you are a fan that wants us to be and behave like a blue blood you are mostly disappointed all the time because we aren’t and don’t even try to act like it anymore. Therefore, reset your expectations to “maybe making the tournament” and the Indiana fanbase can be happy again. Win/win/win but with a lot of losses on the court and particularly on the RoAd!!!!!

    Lineup Changes?

    gotta wonder. The other 2 things. He elevates higher than most for his 3. Kinda like Yogi. If he is more set shooting them in practice that could explain some of the discrepancy. Also on catch and shoot situations, he looks rushed and sometimes seems to be bobbling the ball as his shot is getting started. When he is wide open, it looks pretty darn good and should go in like the 4-9 he did vs Minnesota unguarded.

    Lineup Changes?

    and Phinisee's guide hand is too high on top of the ball. otherwise Phin's shot looks nice but that stable set hand is key.

    Lineup Changes?

    interesting but not fair to Lander, he's further into the release than the others. X's one handed, no guide hand release is silly.

    Night guys and gals. We are fans of a fringe tourney team. Let’s be thankful we have a chance to make the tournament after a 5 year drought………………………………………. Rinse and repeat until the next coach……… Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    Agree with this. It was expected by me, but just knowing if we are ever going to get over the hump we gotta start winning these games. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app
