  1. Well we really won't know if anything is being blown out of proportion until the season is over, but pre-season rankings predict IU to finish 8 - 10th in the B1G.   Certainly the experts aren't predicting this team to do anything special.   When, supposedly, one of the best names in college basketball is signing kids that have been overlooked by every other major program, it tells me that something is wrong with recruiting, and we are using the oversign to do so. I agree that the trend in college basketball is to have a lot of transfers, but Coach Crean is not consistently using the oversign to make sure there is room for a young man that will probably be a star.  He is using the oversign on kids that will play at best a minor role.  You need those role players, but to me the negative connotation outweighs any positives that are coming.

    Diamont to start vs MSU

    I think I had better go back and adjust my score for this game.  
  3. I am glad the University is stepping up, and giving the kids a choice to stay at IU, or go elsewhere. That being said:  I think the annual use of the oversign is a bad thing.  It certainly hasn't helped in building a balanced team, and quite frankly the last couple of recruiting classes, I don't think it has done anything to bring better players into the fold either.

    Sudfeld out for the season

    He had a pass this season no matter what.  IU was not going to make a change after this year.   This is the year that determines how warm his seat is next year.

    Sudfeld out for the season

    Won't matter.  Coleman is a beast, but with our Defensive problems we win at the most two more.  I see possibly Michigan, and Purdue.   I guess my pessimism just won out.

      My daughter got this little 8 pointer last night during Wisconsin's Youth Hunt.

    It took 2 1/2 weeks for my last update to be approved.  
  8. I really have no clue how to pick this one.  I think it depends upon which IU team shows up.  Normally by this point I have an idea as to how the season is going to go.  Right now, still have no clue.   IU 35 IA 28

    IU opens as 7pt dogs @ Iowa

    I would not want to be an odds maker in Vegas with the responsibility of putting odds on IU.  The team is schizophrenic.  
  10. It is just sad, that we are considered to be under the radar and a dark horse to make the tournament.  Now if they were talking a dark horse to make a final four.....

    Worst process I have ever seen.  On one of the apps I have published.  Apple even came back after the third update, and would not approve it, because they said I needed to change the rating...

    IU opens as 14-14.5 faves against N Texas

    Heck, I've watched two games from either a tree stand, or a duck blind.  I'm sure I missed seeing the Wisconsin record buck during the Missouri game. :)  I thought for sure we would beat Rutgers, Purdue, and Michigan.  Looks like we can beat Purdue and Michigan, not so sure about Rutgers.  I thought the Maryland game would be close.

    IU opens as 14-14.5 faves against N Texas

    I hate being a fair weather fan, but Saturday's game was the point in the season that I go from no matter what I am doing I am following the game, to if I have nothing better to do, I'll turn it on. I am glad we have found a kicker, though.

    Wilson on the hot seat according to an idiot

    After yesterday's cluster F#*K, the doubts are back in my mind.  I still like Wilson, but he certainly is not able to get any consistency out of his teams.

    How to Watch IU vs Maryland

    For those with no BTN over flow channels, go out and buy a google chromecast.  $35   Then using a tablet (not sure on ipad) laptop, or android cell phone, you can stream the btn2go channel to your TV.  If you have a charter, or Time Warner account, this will give you access to BTN2GO.

    How to Watch IU vs Maryland

    I guess my reading comprehension skills aren't any good, I read that it will be available on one of the overflow BTN channels, if your provider carries them.  If your provider does not have an overflow channel, then you will only get the game after the noon game is over.   Am I reading that wrong?

    IUFB opens as 14pt dogs @ Mizzou

      My head is bloody and bowed.  I couldn't make it past the 2nd thread, because that was the worst format for web site, I have ever seen!

    IU opens as 3 pt faves against MD

    I think IU's fans (at least I can speak for myself) have been "Snakebit" once to often. We have seen them play good, and then turn around and play like a bad Middle School team.  When it comes to IU Football I feel like Joe Btfsplk  from l'il Abner.  Things just always go wrong.

    IU opens as 3 pt faves against MD

    Kind of amazing what a big win does for expectations....   I figured maybe IU would be favorites against PU, but that would be about it!

    Wilson on the hot seat according to an idiot

    I have been a big supporter of Coach Wilson, but the loss to BG sure put some doubts in my mind.  Not all those doubts have been erased, but the win yesterday was a REALLY good start.

    IU @ Mizzou Post Game Thread

    I think ESPN needs a new editor:  They are so used to IU getting beat, that they had pre-written the ending.    " Tevin Coleman combined for 189 yards and a touchdown to led Indiana to a 31-27 victory over Indiana."   http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=11559895

    IU @ Mizzou Post Game Thread

    Still shocked..  I didn't think IU would even make it close.  The good thing is that three games in, we have the record we need to have.  Didn't think we would get there this way though.  Hopefully this leads to a big boost for the rest of the season.
