    (2023) - SF Kwame Evans

    He'd be a huge addition, but I'd like to see his points per game be higher. Is he just not a focus of his team's offense?

    Serious Question

    Then why haven't the problems been fixed yet? You said it yourself, 12-4 (against a weak schedule) means we're halfway through the season and our most notorious problems still plague us. Inconsistent PG play, lots of turnovers, and scoring droughts did Archie in, and have been the downfall of this program the last 6 years. I'm rooting for Woodson to fix it, but I'm so jaded by this program over the last 20 years to have much faith it will be. Yeah, the fans have high expectations. That's to be expected at this level, especially at a program that has won it all 5 times. So there really isn't room for excuses. I've begun to accept we're more similar to Nebraska football in that we're trying so hard to find the right combination of players and coaches to replicate major success achieved decades ago, rather than Alabama football righting the ship by hiring Nick Saban.

    IUBB vs Minnesota - 1/09/22 @ Noon on BTN

    Agree, but I'd be happy with even a 1 point win at Nebraska. Iowa will be tough to beat at home, I'm not anticipating a win there.

    Glad to get these 2 home games. Hoping to go 1-1 on the road over the next 2 before our showdown with purdoo.

    IUBB vs #13/12 Ohio State - 01/06/22 @ 7:00 on FS1

    What a win! Great job, super impressed with how our defense stepped up and allowed us to extend the lead we wouldn't relinquish. Love seeing the energy of the guys on the bench tonight too.

    Well, if it isn't the grand marshal of the "Mike Woodson is a grand slam hire" parade. Really nailed that one.

    I haven't watched any IU basketball since the Marshall game. The apathy set in when we hired Mike Woodson after convincing myself we were going to land Stevens. Shame on me for thinking we were going to finally try and be a big boy in college basketball. For all the Quad 1 vs. Quad 2 talk - who tf cares? Why bother unless you're on the selection committee, and at this rate you can go ahead and plan that spring vacation that overlaps with March Madness since you won't have to worry about missing IU being in the field of 68. 19-13 after the BTT.

    Thank God we dodged that bullet of hiring Brad Stevens and got Mike Woodson instead.

    IUBB vs UNC Asheville - CANCELED

    I'll be surprised if the NCAA tournament is even held this March.

    Minnesota doing to UM what we should have been able to do to UW. I'd be willing to bet our starting 5 was all rated higher than Minnesota's starting 5, and UM's > Wisconsin's. The transitive property is worthless for the most part, but fun to play with.

    Hilarious. They cried about the same clock starting issue when Diakite for UVA hit that last second shot to force overtime in their Elite 8 game. The reality is that type of thing happens a million times per game.

    Indiana at Wisconsin Game Thread

    Wisconsin isn't the problem man. We are. IU is a loser program. We are so incredibly far from elite. Such a waste of time investing yourself into this garbage, half-assed program.

    Indiana at Wisconsin Game Thread

    This is the 1 game per year I refuse to watch. I can't take 8 on 5 basketball. The flops, holding, and tackling masquerading as "tough defense" make my blood boil just thinking about it.

    Two Grown Men at Guard

    Xavier Johnson is a bad dude. He does look like a grown man out there. We haven't had a guard like XJ in a long time. He's not as talented as Yogi, but he's got more of a mean streak in him than anyone I can remember. We've needed a player like him in the worst way the past few years.
