  1. Season opener vs. the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles a public university located in Cookeville, TN. Formerly known as Tennessee Polytechnic Institute and before that the University of Dixie when it was founded in 1915 as a private institution. Last year's team finished with an overall record of 9-22; 6-12 in Ohio Valley Conference league games and just 6-8 in home games. Head coach is former Kentucky Wildcat John Pelphrey starting his second season with TT. Tell the refs to throw it up and then stay out of the way.
  2. What the 'H' lets give this a try. We have a thread that actively (and sometimes hotly) discusses the virus and we have a thread for the virus and positive news. PLEASE, let's keep this thread devoted exclusively to its impact on sports. The superintendent of schools in Dallas told MSNBC high school football in the state of Texas is highly unlikely in 2020. Nicole Auerbach - The ACC is expected to announce today that it will not allow fall sport competitions (games/exhibitions) until at least Sept. 1, sources tell @TheAthleticCFB. That would affect sports like soccer, field hockey, etc. Practices for all sports would still be allowed in August. Pat Forde subsequently tweeted this would not apply to football.

    Too funny not to share. If ever I have to face a firing squad, I want IU's free throw shooters pulling the triggers.

    Brunk won't be playing at all tonight. He's in street clothes and the official word is it's due to a sore back. Officials for Indiana-Tennessee Tech: Bo Boroski, Edwin Young, Jourdan Love.

  10. Season opener against the Eastern Kentucky Colonels. EK is a public institution located in Richmond, KY. Last year's team finished with an overall record of 11-18 and just 5-13 in Ohio Valley Conference play. Haven't seen confirmation but I presume the game will be broadcast over https://whcc105.com/

    Amazing Grace with a triple-double: 17 pts; 10 reb; 10 asst. This is the first triple-double in IU women's basketball history. Holmes now 13-13 FG. The school record for FG percentage, minimum 10 attempts, is .923 (12-of-13) by Sue Hodges and Quacy Barnes.

    After comments by Archie that Brunk had a sore back and they weren't pushing him in practice, I'd be very surprised if he started and would expect very limited minutes for him.

    At some point in the first half Patberg became the 28th Hoosier to reach the 1,000 career point mark.

    (2022) - SF Justin Taylor

    6 schools currently prioritizing Taylor. https://www.zagsblog.com/2020/11/25/class-of-2022-wing-justin-taylor-breaks-down-recruitment/ Indiana: “I have stayed in consistent contact with [assistant] Coach [Kenya] Hunter and Coach [Archie] Miller, and their pitch is how they want my 2022 class to be the class that kind of turns their program back to the powerhouse it was. They talk about how they need guys who can shoot and score the ball, and how I can come in and do that automatically.”

    Not related to today's game but saw this moments ago from Kentucky WBB: Interim head coach Kyra Elzy has announced that Tatyana Wyatt has been suspended three games for violation of team rules and Rhyne Howard has been suspended two games for not upholding the standards of the program. Both will begin their suspensions today. Our game with Kentucky is scheduled for Dec. 6, and represents Kentucky's 4th game so none of the 3 will be out for that game.

    Borzello - Nebraska forward Derrick Walker is suspended for the first 16 games of the season, per the school. The punishment stems from a violation of team and NCAA rules that occurred while Walker was at Tennessee.

    Breaking: Minnesota at #Badgers is a no-go. That eliminates Wisconsin from Big Ten championship consideration...not that Northwestern didn’t already handle it. Wisconsin then becomes the third consecutive #iufb opponent that has extra time to prepare for the Hoosiers. Typical of '2020'.

    From today's Zoom media meeting - Still uncertainty with tomorrow's game. Miller says "I hope we'll go tomorrow." Brunk dealing with a sore back; he is practicing but they are taking it easy on him. "Our guards have to dominate the game." Miller says the most important aspect for #iubb this season is taking care of the ball. Miller says this is the most consistently healthy Rob Phinisee has been since his freshman year Al Durham is the Hoosiers' best shooter, but says Anthony Leal, Trey Galloway, and Khristian Lander have all been good statistically in practice. Miller on the rotation: "Not sure yet... all freshmen will have a role... We just haven't been able to evaluate a lot of rotations yet." Admits there is going to be "some trial and error" for IU as the season begins, like a lot of teams, because rotations haven't been worked out in scrimmages/exhibitions. He's concerned about #iubb being in game shape. He says not having exhibition games hurts their conditioning.
