    I think next week's CFP rankings should look like this: 1) Georgia 2) Michigan 3) Alabama 4) Cincinnati 5) Ohio State 6) Oklahoma State 7) Notre Dame Michigan and OSU trade places; I'd give the other OSU the nod over Notre Dame since they just beat #10 Oklahoma.

    IUBB vs Marshall - 11/27/21 @ 7:00 on BTN

    This is the stage of games where I get nervous because our opponents usually start bombing 3's.
  3. I figured this was our ceiling this year. This team got smacked around a few too many times for a national contender.

    Ball State ended up winning 97-75. Didn't see that coming.

    This is the least interested I've been in the Bucket game in a long time, but I kind of wish it was still the Saturday before Thanksgiving like it used to be. There are too many other events taking place on the last Saturday in November.

    Duke would have a good case, but I think most of the voters would give it to Purdue. Duke has been ranked #1 too often.

    Here are some happy Bucket memories for us to feel all warm and fuzzy about tomorrow while we try to ignore what's happening: Austin Starr's winning kick. Mitch Ewald's winning kick in overtime. Zander Diamond holding the bucket with a cigar in his mouth after winning his only collegiate game as a starter. Peyton Ramsey plowing into the end zone for the winning score two years ago. At least we'll always have those moments.

    It won't happen, but if Duke wins by a lot, I'd jump them up to #1. But too many media types will want Purdue in the top spot.
  9. After the Great Depression (a.k.a. the Archie Miller era), I'm kind of impressed they still go to games at all. I know young people who don't even watch the games any more.
  10. I think we lose at Syracuse next week, and would be happy if we're above .500 in the Big Ten. That would still be a better season than anything the previous regime gave us.
  11. Message boards can become echo chambers for a wide variety of topics, and I think this was one of them. Get a couple people saying something and a few others repeating it, and before long it's commonly accepted to be true. I had never heard of any system taking "years" to learn until then. No successful college coach would run anything that complicated because you're only getting these kids for 3-4 years, not 8-10 like the pros.

    College Basketball Doomsday Scenarios

    I think Archie Miller knew he made a mistake the minute he sat down for his introductory press conference. Usually coaches are energized and excited for that moment when they represent a wave of new hope. He sounded like the quiet kid in the back of the class who has to get up and talk in front of everyone and just wants to get it over with.

    I don't think Woodson will lose his team like Miller did. Woodson has coached in high-pressure environments, had a professional playing career and knows what it takes to be successful here. Archie Miller was just a guy.

    Purdue and UK both going to the Final Four and then both returning their entire rosters next year.

    Will Indiana be ranked tomorrow?

    I think the pollsters will be impressed by the score. A big reason why Archie Miller's teams couldn't get ranked was because of how bad they usually looked. This game would have been more like 62-50 if he was still coaching here.
