    Do we know any of next year's non-conference games yet?

    2024-2025 IUBB Schedule

    I'm guessing after getting our fingers burnt with the Auburn and Arizona games we decided to dial it back a bit. Not going to be fun times around here when we hit the new year and Purdue has a better record than us with a tougher schedule.

    And only 6 times in the last 15. We haven't made 3 in a row since the mid-2000's. We'd be on the outside looking in a lot more than not if only 32 teams got in.

    LOL, we'd probably never make it again if it was only 32. We hardly ever make it now at 68.

    When you have a team as dominant as Boston was this year, it's going to lead to less interest. The Celtics were 7 games ahead of the top seed in the West and 14 games ahead of everyone else in the East. I think another reason ratings have dropped recently is that Lebron really isn't a factor in the playoffs anymore.

    2024 (F) Kanon Catchings and Whatever

    Nobody would be happier than me if NIL undercut Purdue's program and made them an afterthought in college basketball, but we thought it was the beginning of the end when they lost out on Nigel Pack two years ago and all they've done since then is continue to pull in talent and get stronger.

    Culture doesn't graduate. They won't be top 5, but I could still see them being in the 15-20 range, and I think they'll still make the tournament comfortably even if they aren't anywhere close to a 1 seed. Loyer and Smith will still be a better backcourt than most Big Ten teams and if the Jacobsen kid is any good they're still going to win a lot.

    If I had a dollar for every time I've thought this... I can't think of a fanbase that deserves a regression year with unexpected setbacks more than that one.

    It'd be hilarious if he went to FSU or BYU and they knocked Purdue out of next year's tournament.

    I had actually been meaning to post recently, Purdue was oversigned by one and we had an open scholarship. Wouldn't mind seeing us take one off their hands.
  11. After hitting 6 home runs in the Big Ten tourney last week, Nebraska's Josh Caron is 1 for 11 with a softly-hit single in the NCAA tourney this week. Whatever he was using in Omaha must have stayed there.
  12. Good pitchers are an important part of any successful baseball team. We might want to recruit a few.

    Grace Berger - Indiana Fever

    Grace got fouled on a 3 point shot today and missed all three attempts. Can't help but wonder if the Fever's culture of losing and ineptitude is starting to swallow her up. Luckily it didn't matter as the Fever did just enough to not lose today.

    Grace Berger - Indiana Fever

    I guess the Fever coach remembered Grace exists...she got to play 10 minutes in the first half. She was the only player to have a positive +/- . As usual, Fever behind at the break.
  15. Wow, surprised we made it. I'm not real plugged in with the landscape of college baseball but I thought those ugly losses back in March would keep us out.
