    I’m not sure about “turning up the heat“ down the stretch. Last year we went 1-3 in our last 4 conference games. From 2/1 forward we were 4-6 in conference (plus lost the last two games in January). Hopefully that’s not our new definition of a “run”. EDIT: and two years ago, from today’s date 1/25 and going forward, we were 5-7 in conference (and lost all 5 games previous to that). On the positive side we did win the last 4 in a row but then inexplicably slept-walked through the OSU BTT game which was widely considered to be a play-in game for the NCAA tourney. I hope we turn it up down the stretch this year but don’t think the previous years are proof that will happen. We will see.

    We are Currently a Tourney Team

    Those two games would have changed things but If you want to do the “what ifs” don’t forget to include that it took overtime for us to beat PSU.

    RE: Alford When he was at SW Missouri State (or whatever it is called) I really, really wanted him to eventually be the IU coach. I was jealous of Iowa when they snagged him. The Iowa off the court stuff soured me on him. Aside from the off the court stuff.....Alford has had two power 5 jobs and both Iowa and UCLA, and their fans, could not wait for him to get out of town (they were THRILLED when he was gone). I’m too lazy to look it up but is there a successful power 5 coach out there that was “run out of town” in each of their first two power 5 gigs? I doubt it.

    I have no idea if Beard would work out, if he would be interested, if he is “the guy” etc but in regards to a 5 year rebuild. His first three years at TT which is not exactly a basketball brand name that has highly recruited players flocking to... 6-12 7th in conference 11-7 2nd in conference . Elite 8 14-4 1st in conference . Championship Game In his first 3 years he had a better run than we have had in over 20 years....At TT! Agree with your sentiment that it will be interesting to see how he does this year.

    I get your point but this is year 4, not 2 for Archie. People unanimously feel that Crean sucked and he went from Kyle Tabor to the sweet 16 in 4 years. Maybe we will still do that, this year, but it looks unlikely.

    IUBB vs Maryland - 01/04/21 @ 8:00 on BTN

    Hope AF is ok. I have never done this during an IU game, ever, but I dozed off when it was tied in the mid-40’s and woke up and we were up 10.. LOL Have to rewind it. Glad we got the W .
  12. I googled our schedule for the next few years and that’s what came up. Bummer that it changed because I would like to have UM at home next year.
  13. I also think we will be ranked but possibly in the 20-25 range. The thing that will be different, I hope, is that I think a few wins will help us move up in the rankings, quicker than in the past, because our “brand” is improving because of this years good season, Mullen should be pre-season AA, the national media Tom Allen mojo, etc. We start out at Iowa. I have zero knowledge as to how much of the Cincinnati team returns but they are our third game. The Cinci game could be MUCH bigger than anticipated a few years ago and we could easily be top 15 IF we beat Iowa and Cinci. We also have Michigan and Minnesota at home which sets up very nicely for us. Already looking forward to next year.
  14. During halftime I think Sheridan read our posts about Scott and Ole Miss’s poor run defense.
